  • Report: Marner, Leafs aren't close to deal
    At this point, Mitch Marner signing an offer sheet might actually be good news for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Advice: At least then the Marner situation would wrap up either with him staying with Toronto or the Maple Leafs getting compensated with draft picks. As it stands right now, the negotiations are reportedly not going anywhere quick. Toronto and Marner have fundamentally different views on what the next contract should look like when it comes to term and his annual salary. This could drag on throughout the summer and perhaps beyond. Today, 12:57 pm
  • Andre Burakovsky signs one-year extension
    Andre Burakovsky has signed a one-year contract with the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: The new contract is reportedly worth $3,250,000. Colorado acquired Burakovsky from Washington in exchange for the negotiating rights to Scott Kosmachuk, a 2020 second-round pick, and a 2020 third-round selection. The Capitals took him with the 23rd overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, but he never lived up to his potential in Washington. He had 12 goals and 25 points in 76 contests last season. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good. Today, 12:28 pm
  • Andrew Copp might get a bigger role in 19-20
    Andrew Copp might play a bigger role in 2019-20 due to the departure of Brandon Tanev.

    Advice: Copp had 11 goals and 25 points in 69 games last season. He averaged just 12:10 minutes per game, which was down from 13:44 minutes in 2017-18. Even if he does play a bigger role with the Jets next season, he will continue to serve as a bottom-six forward and his fantasy value will be limited. Today, 2:33 am
  • Puljujarvi's future with Oilers still unclear
    Jesse Puljujarvi's future with the Edmonton Oilers' remains unclear.

    Advice: Puljujarvi wants to be traded and even might go as far as to play in Europe if he isn't but nothing has been decided yet. Oilers GM Ken Holland doesn't want to trade Puljujarvi simply to trade him and it's unclear if there's a good offer out there for him. There are potentially teams out there who might have interest in him though, including Carolina and Minnesota. With plenty of time left in the summer, this situation might not be resolved soon. Yesterday, 5:54 pm

  • Blues explain reason for Husso arb. filing
    The St. Louis Blues felt it was important to make sure Ville Husso's contract situation was settled ahead of training camp.

    Advice: That's why the Blues filed for arbitration in this case. While arbitration filings are pretty common among players, it's somewhat rare for a team to exercise their arbitration rights. Husso and the Blues have a hearing scheduled for July 22nd, but that can be avoided if they agree to terms on their own. Filing for arbitration simply puts a deadline on how long the negotiations can drag on for. Yesterday, 3:51 pm

  • Flyers aren't close to re-signing Provorov
    It doesn't sound like the Philadelphia Flyers are close to re-signing RFA Ivan Provorov.

    Advice: "I wouldn't know how to characterize it; certainly amicable," Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher said when asked about the ongoing negotiations with Provorov's agent. "Everything's cordial and amicable, but I think until the market settles out a bit, it may be difficult to move forward on Provorov." There's a lot of noteworthy restricted free agents that remain unsigned and that might continue to be the case for quite a while. Provorov had seven goals and 26 points in 82 games last season while averaging 25:07 minutes. Yesterday, 12:24 pm
  • Report: Canucks talk 6-year deal with Boeser
    The Vancouver Canucks have reportedly discussed a six-year contract with a roughly $6 million cap hit with Brock Boeser.

    Advice: Boeser is believed to be seeking a shorter-term contract though that's worth about $1 million more annually. He's a restricted free agent after scoring 26 goals and 56 points in 69 contests last season. The Canucks are in a somewhat tight cap situation, so it wouldn't be surprising if Vancouver makes a trade this summer in addition to settling on terms with Boeser. Yesterday, 3:09 am
  • Jacob Trouba, GM in ongoing contract talks
    Jacob Trouba's agent and Rangers GM Jeff Gorton are reportedly in the process of conducting substantive negotiations.

    Advice: It's believed that Trouba will probably end up with a seven-year contract it the ballpark of $7.5-7.8 million annually. That being said, there is a strict timetable on the negotiations. Trouba filed for arbitration and his hearing is scheduled for July 25th, so if he doesn't sign in time, an arbitrator will pick his next contract for him. That might not end up being a bad thing for Trouba, but it would be a risky move. On the plus side, he'd be playing on a one-year contract with the possibility of becoming a UFA afterwards or signing an eight-year extension with the Rangers rather than the max seven-year extension they can currently offer him. Another strong season might serve to bolster the size of his eventual big contract too. By contrast though, a sluggish campaign with the Rangers might cost him money and possibly force him out of New York, which is a city that he said he can see himself being in for a long time. Yesterday, 3:00 am
  • John Gilmour faces difficult road to Sabres
    It will be difficult for John Gilmour to make the Sabres' opening game roster, but it's not impossible.

    Advice: Lawrence Pilut will miss the start of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery and he would have otherwise been one of Gilmour's primary competitors for a roster spot. Gilmour signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Sabres on July 1st after scoring 20 goals and 54 points in 70 AHL contests. Although he's reached a point where he excels at the AHL level, Gilmour is now 26-years-old and only has 33 NHL games on his resume. If he doesn't establish himself in the NHL next season, it may never happen. Yesterday, 2:39 am

  • Blues ink Jordan Binnington to 2YR/$8.8M deal
    Jordan Binnington has signed a two-year, $8.8 million contract with the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: Binnington played a key role in the Blues' championship in 2018-19, both by leading them to the playoffs in the first place and being their starter throughout their Cup run. He had a 24-5-1 record, 1.89 GAA, and .927 save percentage in 32 regular season games and went 16-10 with a 2.46 GAA and .914 save percentage in the playoffs. However, that covers almost everything on the 26-year-old's resume, so this bridge contract makes a lot of sense. He'll have a chance to prove that his 2018-19 campaign was no fluke and if he succeeds in that, then his next contract will be far more lucrative. Saturday, 8:51 pm
  • Colby Williams agrees to a two-way contract
    Colby Williams has signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Washington Capitals.

    Advice: Williams had 10 assists in 36 AHL games last season. He can earn $700,000 at the NHL level or $90,000 in the minors. Saturday, 1:17 pm

  • Sven Andrighetto signs with KHL team
    Sven Andrighetto has signed a two-year contract with Avangard Omsk of the KHL.

    Advice: Andrighetto became an unrestricted free agent after he didn't get a qualifying offer from Colorado. He generated seven goals and 17 points in 64 games with the Avalanche last year. Saturday, 8:22 am

  • Ty Rattie heads to the KHL
    Ty Rattie has agreed to a one-year contract with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL.

    Advice: Rattie had four goals and 11 points in 50 games with the Edmonton Oilers last season. He has 13 markers and 30 points over 99 career NHL appearances. Saturday, 8:20 am

  • Chase De Leo, Ducks avoid arbitration
    Chase De Leo has inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: The two sides avoided going to arbitration as a result. De Leo will make $750,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 in the minors with a $130,000 guarantee. He posted 20 goals and 55 points in 66 matches last season with the AHL's San Diego Gulls. De Leo also appeared in one match with the Ducks in 2018-19. Saturday, 7:49 am

  • Mitch Reinke re-signs with St. Louis
    Mitch Reinke has re-upped with St. Louis on a one-year contract.

    Advice: The two-way contract will pay Reinke $750,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 in the AHL. He produced 12 goals and 45 points in 76 games with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL last season. Saturday, 7:46 am

  • Artturi Lehkonen feels he has a lot to prove
    Artturi Lehkonen feels he has room to improve.

    Advice: Lehkonen had 11 goals and a career-high 31 points in 82 contests last season. The 24-year-old recently inked a two-year, $4.8 million contract extension. "I know I can still play a lot better than I showed last year," Lehkonen said. "Of course, I wasn’t happy in my point production, basically, or how my goal stats were at the end of the year. So I know I still have a lot to prove." Saturday, 2:20 am
  • Hurricanes wait on Justin Williams' decision
    Although the Carolina Hurricanes have had a largely successful summer, there's still one big question mark remaining in Justin Williams.

    Advice: The Hurricanes are hoping to re-sign Williams, but he hasn't decided if he wants to retire or not. The 37-year-old had 23 goals and 53 points in 82 games last season while serving as Carolina's captain. A big part of what Williams brings to the table is his leadership and long history of success, especially in the playoffs. With the Hurricanes positioning themselves as a serious contender next season, having Williams stay on as the team's captain would help keep them on track. Saturday, 2:11 am

  • Jason Studnicka might make Bruins as a winger
    Although Jack Studnicka's natural position is center, he might have a better chance of making the Bruins in the short-term as a winger.

    Advice: "Anything to help the team, in my eyes. I’ll play any position. Obviously, my goal is to play with the big club, whether that’s right wing or center, I’m just going to work as hard as I can and compete," said Studnicka. "I think going into any camp, you’re in the wrong place if you’re goal isn’t to make the team. That’s my goal going into this year, that was my goal last year and the year before. It should be everybody’s goal to come here and try and compete and play at a high level." While Studnicka might get his start as a winger, he'll likely shift to center eventually. Patrice Bergeron is turning 34-years-old on July 24th and David Krejci is 33-years-old, so Boston will need help up the middle in the long-term. Studnicka had 36 goals and 83 points in 60 OHL contests last season. Saturday, 2:05 am

  • Adam Johnson agrees to one-year contract
    Adam Johnson has signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    Advice: Johnson had two assists in six games last season. He scored 18 goals and 43 points in 67 contests in 2018-19. Friday, 11:06 pm
  • Flyers, Laughton settle on two-year extension
    Scott Laughton signed a two-year, $4.6 million extension with the Philadelphia Flyers.

    Advice: Laughton had 12 goals and 32 points in 82 contests last season. He had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 30th, so this contract allowed both sides to avoid that unpleasant fate. His previous contract was a two-year, $1.925 million deal. Friday, 5:44 pm
