  • Jake McCabe signs three-year deal
    Jake McCabe re-signed with the Sabres on Thursday night with a three-year deal.

    Advice: The 22-year-old notched 14 points in 77 games and led all Sabres with a plus-6 rating during his first full season. He played an average of more than 19 minutes per game. Yesterday, 6:06 pm
  • Dan Hamhuis a hot target on the blueline
    Dan Hamhuis enters July 1 as one of the top unrestricted free agent targets on defense.

    Advice: The 33-year-old is sure to receive considerable interest, as he is just one of a small handful of UFA's on the market who can step into a reliable top-four role. The 6'1, 210-pound veteran has been an NHL regular since 2003. He's missed the playoffs just three times since then, and has only held a negative plus-minus rating four times. Yesterday, 4:26 pm
  • 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. Yesterday, 3:48 pm
  • Washington re-signs Zach Sill
    Zach Sill has agreed to a two-year, two-way deal with the Washington Capitals.

    Advice: Sill had nine goals and 22 points in 63 AHL contests in 2015-16. He also had a goal in 10 games with Washington. Yesterday, 1:19 pm
  • Tom Wilson inks a two-year, $4M contract
    Tom Wilson has inked a two-year, $4 million contract with the Washington Capitals.

    Advice: Wilson is primarily known as an enforcer, but he does contribute a bit offensively and hopes to grow in that regard. He had seven goals, 23 points, and 163 penalty minutes in 82 contests in 2015-16. He also averaged 12:55 minutes per game, up from 10:56 minutes as a sophomore and 7:56 minutes as a rookie. He's never going to be a top line player, but the 22-year-old is someone that the Capitals has valued for a while now and is showing signs of growth, so while his cap hit might be high compared to his past role, it's not terribly surprising that he got that kind of a deal. Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Michal Rozsival agrees to a one-year deal
    Michal Rozsival has inked a one-year extension with the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Advice: Rozsival had a goal and 13 points in 51 contests last season. Per general fanager, he's set to earn $600K in 2016-17, which is the same as his 2015-16 salary. Yesterday, 11:00 am
  • Chicago re-signs Brandon Mashinter

  • Columbus will buy out Jared Boll
    The Columbus Blue Jackets plan on buying out Jared Boll.

    Advice: To do that, Boll has been placed on waivers. "Over the past 10 years, Jared Boll has been an impact player for the Columbus Blue Jackets on the ice and one of our best ambassadors in the community and for that we are extremely thankful," said Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen. "Everyone here has great respect and affection for Jared and wish him well. This decision was a difficult one, but one that we believe is in the best interest of our club at this time." This will save Columbus about $1.1 million in cap space in 2016-17, but cost them a little over $566K in 2017-18. Yesterday, 9:46 am

  • Steven Stamkos' new deal worth $68 million
    Steven Stamkos' newly signed deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning is an eight-year, $68 million contract.

    Advice: In other words, Stamkos will come with a $8.5 million annual cap hit moving forward, up from $7.5 million annually during his previous five-year deal. It's almost certainly less than Stamkos could have gotten on the open market, but by leaving some money on the table, Stamkos has made it easier for the Lightning to maintain its current core. The deal was made official on Wednesday night after reports of it surfaced earlier in the day. Tampa Bay will need to deal with Tyler Johnson, Jonathan Drouin, and Ondrej Palat becoming RFAs next summer while Victor Hedman is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent in 2017. Yesterday, 7:15 am
  • Francis Perron aims to get to 175 pounds
    Francis Perron is hoping to bulk up over the summer.

    Advice: "It’s a big summer of training for me, to put on some weight," said Perron. "I want to be 175 pounds for main training camp. Right now, I’m at 163 or 162. For sure, I lost five or six pounds in the last two months of the season. It was a lot of hockey, but it’s part of it. You have to pay a price when you go that far." Perron and the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies' made it to the 2016 Memorial Cup. He had 41 goals and 108 points in 62 QMJHL contests during the regular season. He's projected to start the 2016-17 campaign in the AHL. Yesterday, 7:06 am

  • Larsson hopes to grow offensively with Oilers
    Adam Larsson is excited to be a member of the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: Prior to coming to New Jersey, Larsson was seen as a blueliner that had a lot of offensive potential. The Devils pushed Larsson into being more of a defensive-minded defenseman and while that's helped his game, he's hoping to grow offensively now that he's in Edmonton. "I feel I’m a good fit for that team," Larsson said of the Oilers. Yesterday, 6:02 am
  • Steven Stamkos' contract might help Dallas
    Steven Stamkos' recently signed contract extension might be good news for the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: The Stars can re-sign Jamie Benn as early as July 1 and Stamkos' contract could be used as a baseline to determine what Benn's market value is. Had Stamkos entered the free agent market, it wouldn't have been surprising to see him walk away with over $10 million per season, but he ended up agreeing to an $8.5 million annual cap hit to stay in Tampa Bay. Perhaps that will encourage Benn to do the same, which would make things a little easier on Dallas. Yesterday, 5:54 am
  • Francis has positive meeting with J. Staal
    Hurricanes GM Ron Francis said he had a positive meeting with Jordan Staal.

    Advice: "He’s excited about the direction we’re going in," Francis said. The Hurricanes traded Staal's older brother, Eric Staal, during the 2015-16 campaign and are unlikely to pursue Eric as an unrestricted free agent. The fact that Eric Staal was part of the Hurricanes' organization was believed to be a big reason Jordan Staal was happy to get traded to Carolina and sign a 10-year, $60 million deal back in the summer of 2012. Since Eric's departure, there have been questions raised above the possibility that Jordan would be moved too and while that might happen, Francis' statement seems to make that less likely. Yesterday, 5:47 am
  • Stamkos to sign 8-year, $68M deal with Bolts
    Steven Stamkos has reportedly decided to stay with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: That will put an end to the Stamkos' sweepstakes that were scheduled for July 1. He will apparently agree to an eight-year, $68 million deal with the Lightning and avoid free agency. He recorded 36 goals and 64 points in 77 games last season and had just about every team ready to welcome him with open arms. Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • Oilers get Adam Larsson for Taylor Hall
    Adam Larsson has been dealt to the Edmonton Oilers 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. Wednesday, 12:55 pm
  • 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. Wednesday, 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.

    Advice: His buyout would save the Flames $2.1 million next season and it would result in a $1,050,000 cap hit in 2016-17 and 2017-18, according to Raymond split time between the Flames and the Stockton Heat of the AHL last year. In 29 NHL contests, he posted four goals and one assist. Wednesday, 10:01 am

  • Nothing new to report on Stamkos
    There was nothing new to report on the Steven Stamkos front, according to Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman.

    Advice: Tampa Bay is the only team that can offer Stamkos an eight-year deal before Friday, so a sign and trade remains a possibility if the Lightning know for sure that he will be leaving. It would allow Tampa Bay to get something (a pick, a prospect or a combination of the two) rather than lose him for nothing. However, the door likely hasn't been closed on him returning to the Bolts yet even though he is listening to other teams. Wednesday, 7:12 am
  • 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. 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. Tuesday, 2:42 pm
  • Oilers hope to impress Milan Lucic
    Milan Lucic is slated to visit Edmonton on Tuesday.

    Advice: Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli knows Lucic well from their time in Boston together and there is plenty of interest in adding him to Edmonton's forward group. 10 teams have reportedly contacted Lucic and he was in Vancouver on Monday. There will be plenty of competition for his services when free agency opens. Tuesday, 12:29 pm
  • Steven Stamkos listening to other teams
    Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman has made his pitch to Steven Stamkos.

    Advice: He said the interview window, which opened opened Friday night at midnight, won't change his process. Yzerman stated, "we're both very clear on our positions. ... I have no control over what other teams do. It's all part of the business, we all have decisions to make. (Players) have the right to make their own decisions, and I don't judge anybody on that." Detroit, Toronto and Buffalo are believed to be the major suitors for Stamkos, but there are plenty of other teams interested as well. Monday, 7:06 am
  • 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. Monday, 5:58 am
  • Stars intend to sign Jamie Benn after July 1
    Dallas GM Jim Nill intends to sign Jamie Benn to an extension after July 1.

    Advice: "Jamie's not going anywhere," he said. "We'll get something done." Benn has one more season left on a five-year, $26.25 million deal and he will get a significant pay bump. The Stars captain has topped 85 points in each of his last two seasons and he tallied 41 goals in 2015-16. Saturday, 1:19 pm
  • Stamkos sign and trade a possibility
    Don't rule out a sign and trade outcome for the Lightning's Steven Stamkos.

    Advice: Everyone seems to think the Lightning will either sign and keep Stamkos or trade him. But reports out of Tampa suggest that the Bolts could sign Stamkos to a deal first and then move him to another team. We are not sure what more can be obtained by Tampa with that approach but it is worth noting. The Red Wings and Maple Leafs are two teams that have been rumored to have interest in Stamkos. Stay tuned. Saturday, 7:42 am
  • Canucks are interested in Milan Lucic
    Canucks GM Jim Benning has confirmed that Vancouver is interested in Milan Lucic.

    Advice: Lucic won't officially be a free agent until July 1, but it's already been revealed that he won't re-sign with the Kings before that date. Los Angeles has also stated that Lucic has been given permission to talk with all 29 other clubs ahead of time. The fact that Vancouver is interested in Lucic isn't surprising as it's his hometown and regarded as one of the most likely destinations for him. Thursday, 3:37 pm
  • Milan Lucic will become a UFA on July 1
    Milan Lucic intends to become a UFA on July 1.

    Advice: The Kings attempted to re-sign Lucic, but they couldn't make anything work. Los Angeles has even taken the step of allowing the 29 other teams to start talking to Lucic in advance. He'll attract plenty of interest, but Edmonton and Vancouver have often been cited as potential destinations for Lucic if he couldn't make things work with the Kings. Wednesday, 12:14 pm
  • Canucks may look to trade Hamhuis' rights
    The negotiation rights to Dan Hamhuis could be moved by Vancouver at the NHL Draft this weekend.

    Advice: "We would do something like that, but we haven't had any calls," GM Jim Benning said Monday. "And that whole situation with Dan I would say is still fluid. We're going to see at the draft when we're talking to other teams if there are players who make us better and then we can circle back with Dan and try to get something figured out. There's nothing that has changed on that, we're still trying to figure it out." Hamhuis is expected to test unrestricted free agency on July 1. Tuesday, 1:15 pm
