    • Cory Schneider understands that he has big shoes to fill in New Jersey.
      Advice: Schneider has been hungry for the opportunity to be a starting goaltender for a while, but his current position is more than that. He also has the legacy left by Martin Brodeur to wrestle with as he will, fairly or not, inevitably be compared to the future Hall of Famer. That doesn't bother Schneider though. "We all knew at some point he was not going to be here, though it sort of seems strange without him here, but, at the same time, if it's going to be anyone, I'm excited and proud that it's me," Schneider said.

    • Cory Schneider is slated to see plenty of action this season if coach Pete DeBoer's early prediction is accurate.
      Advice: The New Jersey bench boss was asked how many games Schneider may start in 2014-15 as the club's starter and he said, "I'm not a big numbers guy. I think he's got the body and the capability of playing 70 games. Is that the right number or is 56 the right number? I think that's going to depend on a lot of things - how we're playing as a group, how he's feeling. The nice thing about him is he's a big, strong goaltender. I don't have a workload number where I say that's too much for him. I think he has the ability to handle whatever we throw at him." Schneider played in a career high 45 games last campaign and he started 43 of them, but with Martin Brodeur out of the picture he is expected to be the Devils' top option.

    • Peter Budaj will have to contend with Dustin Tokarski at training camp, as they both vie for Montreal's backup goalie job.
      Advice: Both of them require waivers to be sent down and GM Marc Bergevin has already suggested that the Canadiens will carry three goaltenders entering the season. Budaj was passed over by Tokarski for starts in the playoffs when Carey Price was injured, but he's been a decent backup for the club for the past three seasons.

    • Wild GM Chuck Fletcher doesn't think Josh Harding's ankle injury will impact negotiations with Darcy Kuemper.
      Advice: "The situation itself doesn't change he dynamic," he said. "You want to get it done because he's a good, young goalie, he's somebody we think has potential to be a good player, but anytime you get into a situation where you're missing camp, it's just not healthy. The goal is always to get a contract done. Whether Josh is healthy or not healthy doesn't really have any impact. You always want to get it done, but you've got to do what's right. We'll just keep working through it and hopefully get it done." Harding could be out for months with an ankle injury and with Kuemper's negotiations seemingly going nowhere, the Wild may look for a veteran goalie to join them at training camp.

    • TSN's Bob McKenzie reports that there's "no thaw yet" in the standoff between Minnesota and goaltender Darcy Kuemper.
      Advice: The Wild want to get the 24-year-old netminder under a two-way contract, but Kuemper is reportedly seeking a one-year, one-way deal at $850,000.

    • Darcy Kuemper and the Minnesota Wild are "stuck" as far as the contract negotiations go, according to agent Jeff Helperl.
      Advice: Kuemper is seeking a one-way deal for the 2014-15 campaign while the Wild are trying to get him to sign a two-year deal that's two-way for this season. It was recently reported that Kuemper might sign a KHL deal at this point and Helperl didn't rule it out. "Well, he's going to play somewhere, so it could happen," Helperl said. "We'll see when camp starts and see where we're at. . I last spoke to Chuck I think last week and I don't think we moved very far ahead."

    • Bob McKenzie of TSN reports that the Wild want Darcy Kuemper to sign a two-way deal.
      Advice: However, Kuemper is seeking a one-way contract after performing well last year during the regular season and the playoffs. Minnesota already has Josh Harding and Niklas Backstrom in the fold for their crease, but both of them are injury risks. Kuemper acts as a good insurance policy for the team, but a two-way deal offers them more flexibility. McKenzie reports that Kuemper is looking at options in the KHL, with an out-clause in case something gets worked out to keep him in the NHL.
