    • Robin Lehner just wants a "fair chance" to earn his starts in Ottawa's crease.
      Advice: "If I play good, I want to play. And if he plays good, he's going to want to play," Lehner said referring to his goalie tandem with Craig Anderson. "That's what you want on a team. You want two goalies pushing each other. If there's limited chance for one guy to play, he's not going to do as good. That's a little bit of what we wanted from our side. I think and I hope that's what's going to happen." Lehner inked a three-year, $6.75 million contract this off-season and earlier this week, Anderson agreed to a three-year, $12.6 million extension. He said that Anderson's deal didn't change his focus and it didn't upset him either.

    • Penguins GM Jim Rutherford isn't in a hurry to re-sign Marc-Andre Fleury, but he still holds him in high regard.
      Advice: "I think he's one of the most talented goalies in the league," Rutherford said. "From my point of view, he's our goalie. There's no reason why he can't be our goalie for a long time." Fleury can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2014-15 campaign. His agent, Allan Walsh, said he is on the same page as Rutherford and not having something worked out before the season starts is "of no consequence at all." Pittsburgh retained goaltender coach Mike Bales, who has been working hard to bring some consistency to Fleury's game, even though they cleaned house during the off-season. Fleury wants to remain loyal to the Pens as well and his preference is to be part of the organization for the "rest of his career."

    • Ben Bishop (wrist) hopes to be fully healed by the time the regular season starts.
      Advice: "The elbow healed up and that's back to 100 percent now. As for the wrist, I started skating in the last couple of weeks and I have a pad under my blocker now just to take away from some of the blow of taking shots off of it," he told NHL.com. "I was down in Tampa with the trainers and equipment guys to figure out a blocker to work with for the next month. I'm starting to take shots and it's getting there. It's not 100 percent yet, but hopefully before the start of the season it'll be close." At this point it looks like he'll be available for training camp, but his role could be limited depending on how his wrist feels.

    • Lightning coach Jon Cooper is a strong believer that the 2013-14 campaign wasn't a fluke for number one goaltender Ben Bishop.
      Advice: "He was arguably the MVP of our team last year. We really leaned on our goaltender heavily," Cooper said. "I truly believe he's coming into his prime. With his work ethic and the way he approached the game as the year went on last year, I'm fully confident he'll be a rock back there for us." Bishop was a steal last season for fantasy owners after he posted 37 wins, a 2.23 goals-against average, a .924 save percentage and five shutouts. If he can stay healthy and Tampa Bay plays as good as they look on paper then Bishop will be in store for another excellent year.
