  • Fowler felt like he was going to be traded
    Cam Fowler was a bit surprised that he wasn't traded based on all the rumors he heard going into the NHL Draft.

    Advice: "You hear your name tossed out there. I've heard that before even at recent trade deadlines, but this time with the position the Ducks are in and some of the salaries, it just seemed like it was pretty real," he said. "I was 100 percent prepared for something to happen and was honestly pretty surprised when it didn't. It's one of those things where I want to be prepared for it to happen, obviously I love playing in Anaheim and being a Duck, I feel like I have a great relationship with [GM] Bob [Murray]. I just know that his hands are tied a little bit with what he needs to do. I just have to sit and be patient and see what happens." It seems like he could be staying with the team now because Anaheim was seeking a top-10 pick for him and that didn't happen. Today, 2:49 pm
  • Oilers get Adam Larsson for Taylor Hall

    Advice: In 82 games last season, Larsson recorded three goals and 18 points, which was down from his personal best of 24 over 64 contests in 2014-15. Larsson was the fourth overall pick in 2011 and he hasn't developed his two-way game the way New Jersey hoped he would. Today, 12:55 pm
  • Troy Brouwer has spoken with a few teams
    Troy Brouwer has spoken to a few teams during the interview period prior to free agency.

    Loui Eriksson and Andrew Ladd have spoken to the Nashville Predators prior to the start of free agency.

    Advice: "Forward-wise, we're always looking to get a little bit better," Predators general manager David Poile said Tuesday.

    Fedor Tyutin has been bought out of the final two years of his contract by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: "Fedor Tyutin is a pro in every sense of the word and has been an important player for the Columbus Blue Jackets for many years, but this decision is a result of the current depth on our blue line and to add some financial flexibility for our club moving forward," said GM Jarmo Kekalainen. "I want to thank Fedor for his many contributions and wish he, his wife, Sarah, and their family all the best moving forward." His buyout will save the Blue Jackets $3,291,667 in 2016-17. Tyutin is now an unrestricted free agent. Today, 10:28 am
  • Brad Stuart clears waivers, buyout to come
    Brad Stuart has cleared waivers, so the Avalanche will proceed with his buyout.

    Advice: He was limited to just six appearances in 2015-16 because of a back injury. The Avalanche won't get rid of his $3.6 million cap hit for next season because of his age. However, it will save Colorado $1.2 million in cash and give the team a spot back on the 50-contract limit. Today, 10:15 am
  • Predators put Eric Nystrom on buyout waivers
    Eric Nystrom has been put on buyout waivers.

    Advice: Nashville wanted to trade Nystrom rather than use a buyout on him, but they were unsuccessful in that quest. He potted seven goals in 46 games with the Predators last campaign. Today, 10:05 am
  • Mason Raymond on waivers for a buyout
    Mason Raymond has been placed on waivers by Calgary with the intent to buyout the rest of his contract.

    Andrew Ladd has a number of teams interested with free agency set to begin on Friday.

  • Blue Jackets ink Seth Jones to 6-year deal
    Seth Jones has inked a six-year contract with Columbus worth $32.4 million.

    Advice: The 21-year-old defenseman's new deal has an annual average value of $5.4 million. Jones registered 20 points in 41 games with the Blue Jackets after he was acquired from Nashville in the Ryan Johansen trade. Today, 7:34 am
  • Florida not trading Nick Bjugstad
    The Panthers don't plan to move Nick Bjugstad.

    Advice: There were reports a couple of weeks ago that trade possibilities were being considered, but it doesn't appear as though he is going anywhere. Bjugstad struggled with injuries last year and recorded just 34 points in 67 games. He will look to get back on track in 2016-17. Today, 7:30 am
  • Source: CBJ close to extension for Seth Jones
    Columbus is reportedly close to signing an extension with Seth Jones, according to a source.

    Advice: Cap space is tight for the Blue Jackets, but locking up the young defenseman is a top priority for the team. Jones was acquired from Nashville in the Ryan Johansen trade last season. Today, 7:22 am
  • Mutual interest between MTL and David Perron
    The Montreal Canadiens are reportedly interested in signing David Perron.

    Advice: Perron is from nearby Sherbrooke, Quebec and he's set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. Per Sportsnet, Perron is more than willing to play in his home province. The Canadiens are in the market for at least one top-six forward and Perron certainly gives them that. The 28-year-old scored just 12 goals and 36 points in 71 games in 2015-16, but he really turned it on after being traded from the Penguins to the Ducks. He had 20 points in 28 games with Anaheim. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Report: BOS preparing offer sheet for Trouba
    The Boston Bruins are reportedly preparing an offer sheet for Jacob Trouba.

    Advice: It's no secret that the Bruins need to get better and younger on defense and this would be an expensive way of doing that. According to Joe Haggerty, the deal would be worth a minimum of $47 million dollars. If the Jets refuse to match that, it would net them four consecutive first round picks from the Bruins. Trouba had six goals and 21 points in 81 games last season. The 22-year-old averaged 22:03 of ice time in 2015-16. Yesterday, 9:07 pm
  • Avs put Brad Stuart on waivers for a buyout
    Brad Stuart has been placed on waivers and the Avalanche intend to buy him out.

    Advice: The Avalanche will save $1.2 million in cash, according to, but his buyout won't provide salary cap relief because he is 36 years of age. That will leave the team with a $3.6 million charge. Colorado wants to get younger on the back end, while giving more opportunities to Nikita Zadorov, Chris Bigras, Eric Gelinas and prospect Duncan Siemens. Yesterday, 9:23 am
  • Florida wants to keep Greg McKegg
    Greg McKegg didn't get a qualifying offer from Florida, but the team still wants him back for next season.

    Advice: Panthers GM Tom Rowe said a contract was offered to McKegg after he impressed coach Gerard Gallant during his 15 appearances with the big club in 2015-16. McKegg can become an unrestricted free agent if he doesn't sign with Florida. Yesterday, 7:03 am

  • Cam Fowler mentioned in trade rumours
    The trade winds are blowing in Anaheim, as sources are reporting defenseman Cam Fowler could be on the move before Friday's NHL draft.

    Advice: Fowler is a terrific young puck mover with decent fantasy value if put in the right situation. If he moves to a team with a capable defense partner, his value can be on the rise. Thursday, 5:21 pm
  • Jets willing to match offer sheets on Trouba
    Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff said he would match any offer sheets for Jacob Trouba.

    Advice: It's pretty rare for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets anyways so this is a threat that Cheveldayoff isn't likely to have to make good on. At the same time statements like his could dissuade potential suitors from pursuing Trouba in the first place. Thursday, 10:04 am
  • Loui Eriksson likely to test UFA market
    It's looking like Loui Eriksson and the Boston Bruins won't be able to agree to a new contract.

    Advice: It sounds like the length of the deal is the issue as Eriksson is looking for a six-year deal while Boston doesn't want to go over four years. Eriksson will turn 31 on July 17 so we can see why the Bruins would balk at that length. Wednesday, 3:56 pm
  • Tomas Hertl (knee) being evaluated further
    Tomas Hertl is undergoing an evaluation to see if surgery is required on his knee.

    Advice: He didn't think a procedure would be necessary last week. Sharks GM Doug Wilson said Monday he'll probably know in the next seven-to-10 days whether any of his players, who were playing banged up in the playoffs, will require surgery. Jun 20, 1:57 pm
