    • Ryan Johansen and the Blue Jackets are still in the midst of an intense contract standoff as Columbus hopes to sign their young star to a bridge deal, while Johansen says he deserves a long, lucrative deal.
      Advice: Johansen and his agent Kurt Overhardt believe the 22 year-old budding star deserves a raise after notching 63 points in 82 games during his first full season in the league. The Blue Jackets do too, offering the 6'3, 220 pound center a two year, $3.5 million per year bridge contract where a long-term deal would come afterwards. But Johansen's side wants to be paid now, seeking a deal in the range of $7 million per season, which has created a negotiation stalemate. If Johansen does not sign by the start of training camp on Sept. 18, the Jackets could use their ample cap space to sign another unrestricted free agent while Johansen holds out.

    • Peter Holland will compete for Toronto's third-line spot at training camp.
      Advice: The Leafs added Petri Kontiola and Mike Santorelli in free agency to battle with Holland for the role. He expected there to be competition after the way the team ended last season, but he's hoping that his strong performance in the AHL playoffs will carry him to a permanent NHL position. Holland is excited for his first training camp with the Leafs and he wants to play regularly for his hometown team badly.

    • Cody Eakin still needs a contract from the Dallas Stars.
      Advice: He's a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level deal, so a two-year, bridge contract is a very good possibility. Negotiations will probably ramp up as training camp draws closer. Eakin lost some bargaining power when the Stars acquired Jason Spezza in the off-season because now he's projected to center the third line instead of the second unit.
