  • DeKeyser, Wings talking long-term contract
    Danny DeKeyser's arbitration hearing is set for Thursday, but an agreement on a long-term deal could be finalized before that.

    Advice: "Ideally, Danny would like to do a longer-term deal. The club would like to do a longer-term deal," GM Ken Holland said. "Since they filed, this period of negotiation and time to do your brief for an arbitration hearing has mostly been about discussions on a longer-term deal. We talked Thursday, we talked Friday, we're going to talk again today." He can only receive a one-year deal if his case is heard. 40 minutes ago

  • Jordan Staal may follow Eric as next captain
    Jordan Staal could be the next captain of the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: The Hurricanes haven't had a captain since Feb. 28 following the trade of Jordan's brother, Eric. Justin Faulk is considered to be another strong contender to wear the "C," but Staal has more experience in the league and a Stanley Cup ring. He was also a key contributor last season, especially during the second half. The Hurricanes won't rush the decision and it's possible that they could enter the year with multiple assistants. Today, 7:51 am
  • Tim Schaller hopeful to crack B's lineup
    Tim Schaller believes he has a shot at a roster spot with Boston out of training camp.

    Advice: "Boston was a good fit," said the New Hampshire native. "We think I'm better than the prospects, so we thought it was a good fit. Hopefully I can beat out a bunch of guys for a job." Schaller spent most of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors with Buffalo, while generating three points in 17 appearances with the Sabres when he was called up. If he manages to land a spot with the team then it would probably be a fourth-line role. Today, 7:38 am

    Advice: He impressed during his rookie campaign with nine goals and 33 points in 79 games. Parayko also added seven points from the back end in 20 playoff contests.

  • Predators don't want P.K. Subban to change
    The Nashville Predators don't see P.K. Subban's personality as a problem.

    Advice: There's been speculation about whether or not Subban will mesh well with the Predators, but it sounds like Predators GM David Poile doesn't see that as a problem. "I told him the same thing — I traded for P.K. Subban, the player and the person," Poile said. "I could say there’s going to be things that we’re going to find out about him as a player that he can do or can’t do or other things that will come up over time, but I don’t want him to change. We want different players. I guess sometimes whether it be a team or a business or whatever walk of life you’re in, you want everybody to sort of march to the same beat. We don’t want that." In Subban, the Predators have acquired one of the best defensemen in the NHL and someone who could potentially help energize the team when needed. Yesterday, 6:34 am

    Advice: Farnham had 10 points and 97 penalty minutes in 53 games between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils last season. If he makes the Montreal Canadiens' opening game roster then he should once again be a good source of PIM. Saturday, 9:39 pm

  • Peter Holland asks for $2.1 million
    Peter Holland has requested a salary of $2.1 million.

    Advice: Toronto has countered at $900,000. Holland had nine goals and 27 points in 65 contests last season while averaging 14:40 minutes per game. Keep in mind that while $2.1 million seems high for Holland, it's a negotiating point rather than what he likely expects to get. That said, Toronto strengthened its negotiating position by putting him on waivers. Every other team passed on the opportunity to claim him. His arbitration hearing is scheduled for July 25. Saturday, 5:12 pm
  • Peter Holland isn't claimed on waivers
    Peter Holland went unclaimed on waivers.

    Advice: That should help the Maple Leafs build their case for a reduced salary for Holland. After all, every other team in the league just had the opportunity to take him and no one stepped up to do so. Saturday, 12:08 pm
  • Brayden Schenn asks for $5.5 million salary
    Brayden Schenn is requesting a one-year, $5.5 million contract.

    Advice: The Philadelphia Flyers are countering with a two-year contract that would pay him $4.25 million in 2016-17 and $4,369,425 in 2017-18. This is all being presented ahead of his arbitration hearing scheduled for July 25. Obviously when players and teams make their pre-arbitration requests known there is going to be a salary gap and from a cap hit perspective, they're not terribly far off. What is somewhat unusual is that the Flyers have decided to ask for a two-year contract, so the difference between them could actually be larger because of it. If Schenn were to have presented what he wanted out of a two-year deal, he would have likely asked for an annual salary above his current request of $5.5 million. Saturday, 9:08 am
  • Subban thinks they'll be less distractions
    P.K. Subban anticipates things being different with the small market Nashville Predators compared to his time with the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: "I think there's just less distractions," Subban said. "I think in Montreal, things can become distractions for a team, and for us, I think that here, there's going to be less distractions for sure." Getting out from under the media scrutiny that comes from playing with the Montreal Canadiens might make things easier on him. That being said, he still excelled with the Canadiens and we believe Subban could play effectively in any market. Saturday, 1:32 am
  • Report:Kris Versteeg will play in Switzerland
    Kris Versteeg will reportedly sign with Switzerland’s Bern in the near future.

    Advice: It will be interesting if that does happen given that Versteeg is a pretty established player in the NHL. He might not have been in line for a particularly lucrative deal, but it would be surprising if it turned out that he didn't have any NHL offers on the table. He scored 15 goals and 38 points in 77 games with the Carolina Hurricanes and Los Angeles Kings in 2015-16. Saturday, 1:26 am

  • Leafs put Peter Holland on waivers
    Peter Holland has been placed on waivers.

    Advice: The Toronto Maple Leafs are likely sending a message ahead of Holland's July 25th arbitration hearing. If he clears waivers then it will help the Leafs make the case for him to get a lesser contract during that process. Friday, 10:18 am
  • Report: Ben Scrivens heads to the KHL
    Ben Scrivens has reportedly signed with the KHL's Dinamo Minsk.

Scrivens is still just 29 years old, so he might end up back in the NHL at some point. He has a 2.92 GAA and .905 save percentage in 144 career contests. Jul 15, 4:22 pm

  • Habs don't keep analytics consultant Pfeffer
    Analytics consultant Matt Pfeffer has been informed by the Montreal Canadiens that his contract won't be renewed.

    Advice: Pfeffer's departure is noteworthy because it comes shortly after he argued to keep P.K. Subban on the team over Shea Weber. Montreal ultimately didn't agree with his recommendation and instead dealt Subban to Nashville in exchange for Weber. "Prior to the trade, I submitted a report comparing both players. I made a passionate case in favour of P.K. Subban," Pfeffer explained. "There was never a meeting with management. Ultimately, this is the nature of this kind of work. Management makes their decision based on a variety of criteria. Their evaluation may have been different in this case, but there was consensus on other decisions through my time with the team."
