  • McDavid big reason why Lucic chose Edmonton
    Milan Lucic is very excited to start playing with the best young talent in the NHL, Connor McDavid.

    Advice: "Connor McDavid," Lucic said when asked his No. 1 reason for selecting Edmonton. "just getting an opportunity to play with one of the best players of this time. I know he missed a good chuck of the season last year with an injury (to his collarbone), but from what I saw and what he was able to do, he's definitely up there with the [Sidney] Crosbys of the world and his ability." Lucic has the potential to eclipse his career high of 30 goals and 62 points if McDavid stays healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:28 pm

  • Report: Kings offered Milan Lucic 8-yrs/$34M
    The Los Angeles Kings' final offer to Milan Lucic was reportedly an eight-year, $34 million contract.

    Advice: Lucic ended up agreeing to a seven-year, $42 million deal with Edmonton instead. In other words, the Kings never offered him what proved to be his market value, which is understandable given that Los Angeles didn't have a lot of cap space to work with. Either way, by signing with the Oilers, Lucic is reuniting with his former and now current general manager, Peter Chiarelli. He's also joining a squad with a lot of promise, but also a lengthy history over the last decade of failing to live up to their potential. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:41 pm
  • Sharks get Mikkel Boedker for four years
    Mikkel Boedker has signed a four-year, $16 million contract with the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Boedker had 17 goals and 51 points in 80 games between the Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche in 2015-16. Boedker is just 26 years old, so it's not unreasonable to expect more of the same out of him, which makes this look like a pretty good contract. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:17 pm

    Andrew Bodnarchuk has agreed to a two-year deal with Dallas.

    Advice: Bodnarchuk had no goals and four points in 37 games with Columbus and Colorado in 2015-16. Although he might end up playing for Dallas next season, it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up spending the campaign in the minors. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:19 pm

  • Lightning aren't moving fast with Ben Bishop
    Don't expect anything to happen quickly with regards to Ben Bishop.

    Advice: Tampa Bay's decision to ink Andrei Vasilevskiy to a three-year, $10.5 million deal has raised questions about Bishop's future with the club. Bishop has one year left on his contract, but after that will the Lightning be interested in paying him starter money on top of Vasilevskiy's $3.5 million annual cap hit? Bishop's people haven't been told that he'll be dealt yet and an extension seems unlikely in the near term. Tampa Bay could simply enter the season with both goaltenders and make their decision towards the trade deadline or next summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:16 pm
  • Wild ink Stalock one-year, two-way for $650K
    The Minnesota Wild have inked Alex Stalock to a one-year and two-way deal worth $650K.

    Advice: Stalock will earn $300K while with the AHL. The 28-year-old backup netminder played three seasons for the University of Minnesota-Duluth, where he saw great success. However he's coming off a 2015-16 season where he posted a 3-5-2 with an .882 save percentage and a 2.94 GAA in 13 games with San Jose, and never suited up for Toronto after being dealt eastward. It appears that Stalock is in line to assume backup duties behind Devan Dubnyk as Darcy Kuemper remains unsigned as an RFA. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:16 pm
  • Chicago re-signs Pierre-Cedric Labrie
    Pierre-Cedric Labrie has re-signed with Chicago.

    Advice: In 66 games with Rockford of the AHL last season, he posted 20 goals, 34 points and 102 penalty minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:14 pm

  • Yannick Weber joins Predators
    Yannick Weber has agreed to join the Nashville Predators on a one-year contract.

    Advice: He will earn $575,000. Yannick is far from a replacement for Shea Weber, who was traded to Montreal in exchange for P.K. Subban, and will be a depth player on the back end for the Predators. He chipped in seven assists in 45 games for the Canucks last season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:25 am
  • Nathan Gerbe to play with the Rangers
    The New York Rangers have signed Nathan Gerbe to a one-year, $600,000 contract.

    Advice: The diminutive winger played only 47 games with the Hurricanes last season and his three goals and seven points won't excite too many Rangers fans. He has no fantasy value and is a bottom-six forward at best at this time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:16 am

  • Victor Hedman signs an eight-year extension
    Victor Hedman has signed an eight-year/$63 million contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: It's a bit less than what Steven Stamkos signed for a couple of days ago as Steve Yzerman has locked up his top two players. Hedman is a top-five defenseman in the NHL and should go in the top-five rounds in most drafts as he has the capability to get 55-60 points. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 am
  • Edmonton signs G Jonas Gustavsson
    Jonas Gustavsson has agreed to a one-year contract with Edmonton worth $800,000.

    The Ottawa Senators have re-signed defenseman Mike Kostka to a one-year, $800,000 contract.

  • Dale Weise inks four year deal with Flyers
    The Philadelphia Flyers have signed Dale Weise to a four-year/$9.4 million contract.

    Advice: The former Hab was dealt to the Blackhawks before the trade deadline and is now on his way to the city of Brotherly Love. He should line up on the third line and could get 15-20 goals with lots of penalty minutes for the Flyers. Draft him late, if at all, in pools next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 am
  • Sharks sign David Schlemko for four years
    David Schlemko is now a member of the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: He has signed a four-year deal worth $2.1 million per season. Schlemko had six goals and 19 points in 67 games from the back end with New Jersey last year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 am

  • Jake Allen, Blues agree to 4-year extension
    Jake Allen has agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $17.4 million.

    Advice: "I'm so excited to be a Blue for the next five years. This is where I want to be," Allen said. "This is the place that drafted me and made me the goalie I am today. I want to be a Blue forever and I'm looking forward to being able to stay here for the next five years. With the contract out of the way, now I can focus on hockey and worry about winning a championship." Allen will be Blues' number one netminder next season after Brian Elliott was traded at the 2016 NHL Draft. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 am
  • James Reimer to get $17.5 million for 5 years
    James Reimer will get $17.5 million over his five year contract.

  • Flames sign G Chad Johnson
    Chad Johnson has signed a one-year contract with Calgary worth $1.7 million.

    Advice: Johnson played well for the Buffalo Sabres last season, where he posted a 22-16-4 record along with a 2.36 GAA and a .920 save percentage. He will serve as Brian Elliott's backup in 2016-17. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 am
  • Anton Khudobin signs with Boston
    Anton Khudobin has signed a two-year, $2.4 million deal with the Boston Bruins.

    Advice: Khudobin spent the 2015-16 season with Anaheim where he spent plenty of time in the minors as John Gibson and Frederik Andersen played most of the time. Khudobin was 3-3-0 in nine games with the Ducks with a 2.69 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He will be in the mix to back up Tuukka Rask and is likely the leader heading into training camp at this time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 am

  • James Reimer signs with the Panthers
    The Florida Panthers have inked goaltender James Reimer to a five year contract.

    Advice: Reimer will back up Roberto Luongo for now and he could replace the netminder in a few years. For now, Reimer should see action in 30 games or so and should get 15-18 win with good peripherals in fantasy pools. He is worth a pickup to handcuff Luongo. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:13 am
  • Report: Oilers will make Lucic 7-year offer
    The Edmonton Oilers will reportedly offer Milan Lucic a seven-year deal worth a minimum of $42 million contract.

    Advice: Lucic is 28 years old, so it's at least feasible that he'll maintain his current level - or close to it - through the life of that deal. As for the cap hit, $6 million annually seems in the right ballpark for Lucic, particularly for Edmonton which likely has to put more on the table to lure top UFAs given the Oilers' horrific track record over the last decade. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:51 am
  • Stars reach out to Milan Lucic
    The Dallas Stars reached out to Milan Lucic this week.

    Advice: Dallas would be an interesting destination for Lucic as the Stars already have a potent group of forwards. Ultimately the Stars would probably be expecting Lucic to leave a little money on the table if he is to sign with them, but if he believes that Dallas will provide him with a greater chance to win the Cup, then he might do it. Edmonton is also considered a favorite for his services. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 am
  • Report: Milan Lucic won't sign with Vancouver
    The Vancouver Canucks are reportedly not in the running for Milan Lucic anymore.

    Advice: At this point Edmonton could be considered the favorites for Lucic's services, especially after they traded Taylor Hall. The idea of Lucic playing for the Canucks was one of considerable interest given that Vancouver is his hometown. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:48 pm
  • Milan Lucic says a decision hasn't been made
    Milan Lucic didn't verify reports that he will sign with the Edmonton Oilers once free agency begins on Friday.

    Advice: "I didn't. Not allowed to," he said. "And I haven't made decision." Sources are reporting that Lucic has agreed to a tentative deal with the Oilers, but we probably won't get confirmation on this until free agency opens on July 1. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:28 pm
  • Sources: Lucic will join Oilers on July 1
    Milan Lucic will reportedly sign with the Edmonton Oilers on July 1, according to sources.

    Advice: One source said it was 100 percent and another said it was 95 percent that Lucic ends up in Edmonton. Lucic must have been very impressed with his recent visit with the Oilers. He has attracted plenty of interest leading up to the free agency on Friday. If he ends up agreeing to terms with Edmonton then a trade for a defenseman may not be far around the corner. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:42 pm
  • Montreal looking at bringing back Dale Weise
    Montreal is looking at bringing back Dale Weise.

    Advice: The team has been in contact with Weise's camp, but he would probably only return if the price is right. Montreal sent him to Chicago before the trade deadline and he is slated to be an unrestricted free agent in July. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:45 pm
  • Oilers hope to impress Milan Lucic
    Milan Lucic is slated to visit Edmonton on Tuesday.

There will be plenty of competition for his services when free agency opens. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:29 pm
  • Carolina has plenty of potential UFAs
    Nathan Gerbe is eligible for unrestricted free agency on Friday.

    Advice: Riley Nash, Chris Terry, Brad Malone and T.J. Hensick can also sign anywhere on July 1 if the Hurricanes don't re-sign them as well. Carolina didn't give qualifying offers to Danny Biega, Anthony Camara, Dane Fox, Carter Sandlak, Justin Shugg, Rasmus Rissanen and Rasmus Tirronen, so they will become UFAs too. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:40 am
  • No QO for Colborne, still talking to Flames
    Joe Colborne didn't get a qualifying offer from Calgary.

    Advice: However, the Flames will continue to negotiate with him before he can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and they still could agree to terms. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:43 pm
  • Will Milan Lucic return to Boston?
    Boston GM Don Sweeney would be happy to get pending unrestricted free agent Milan Lucic.

    Advice: "The city would embrace [Lucic], the organization has great respect for him," said Sweeney. "There is no question we would explore all players." The Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames are believed to be interested in Lucic as well. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:58 am
  • James Reimer will not be re-signed by Sharks
    GM Doug Wilson all but said that James Reimer, Nick Spaling, Dainius Zubrus and Roman Polak will not be re-signed before they become UFA's on July 1.

    Advice: This is no surprise as the Sharks will look to bring some of their cheaper minor leaguers up to do the job. Reimer has a few spots to look at but they will be in a backup role most likely. Teams like Anaheim and Edmonton are in the market for a backup and it remains to be seen where Reimer winds up. He was 17-14-7 with a 2.31 GAA and a .922 save percentage in 40 games with the Sharks and Toronto in 2015-16. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:57 am
  • Hedman extension likely coming
    In contrast to the Steven Stamkos contract negotiations, extension talks with defenseman Victor Hedman are not expected to be protracted.

    Advice: So says Hedman's agent Peter Wallen. "I would be shocked if this would go for the whole year," Hedman's agent, Wallen, said. Hedman is eligble to become an unrestricted free agent July 1st of 2017 and the Bolts are anxious to tie him up on a long-term deal. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:37 am
