  • 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
  • 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

  • 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
  • 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

  • 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

  • Robby Fabbri signs one-year extension
    Robby Fabbri has agreed to a one-year, $900,000 contract with the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: Fabbri scored two goals and six points in 32 games last season. His previous contract was a one-year, $925,000 deal. Friday, 2:20 pm

  • Hurricanes add Ryan Dzingel on 2-year deal
    Ryan Dzingel has agreed to a two-year contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: The deal will pay Dzingel $3.25 million in 2019-20 and $3.5 million in 2020-21. "Ryan has proven that he can be an impact player offensively, putting up bigger numbers over each of his three full-time NHL seasons," said Hurricanes GM Don Waddell. "His speed, skill and vision make him an excellent fit for our forward group and our style of play. At 27, he's just entering his prime and certainly had options coming off a 26-goal season, so we're happy he's chosen to be a part of the Carolina Hurricanes." Dzingel set career highs in goals (26), assists (30) and points (56) in 78 games last season, but his production slowed after he was traded by Ottawa to Columbus. He is a versatile player, though, who can be used up and down the lineup. Friday, 7:21 am
  • D. Heinen focuses on improving offensively
    Danton Heinen will be looking to bounce back offensively in 2019-20.

    Advice: Heinen had 47 points in 77 contests as a rookie in 2017-18, but regressed to 11 goals and 34 points in 77 games last season. He signed a two-year, $5.6 million bridge contract earlier this week and if he wants to land a big contract by the end of that, he'll need to show that he can build on his success as a rookie. "I’m going to continue to work on [the little details] because I think if you’re good at the little details good things happen, and you’re put in better spots on the ice. I’m going to continue to work on those details and then when you get chances, grade-A looks or [chances to] be an offensive guy that’s kind of… do your follow up there. That’s the kind of player I see myself being," Heinen said. "Coming into the league, I wanted to be an offensive guy. I wanted to, you know, create more, and I’m going to keep on working at doing that, trying to produce more for the team." Friday, 1:49 am

  • Joel Armia signs two-year deal with Habs
    Joel Armia has signed a two-year, $5.2 million contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: Montreal and Armia have successfully avoided the arbitration hearing that was scheduled for July 20. He had 13 goals and 23 points in 57 contests in 2018-19. Thursday, 11:05 am
  • Coyotes' ticket sales rise dramatically
    Since acquiring Phil Kessel, Arizona Coyotes season-ticket sales have shot up 600% compared to the same week last year.

    Advice: Ticket sales overall are up 550% for the Coyotes. As you might imagine, the Kessel trade also led to a spike in website activity and social media engagement for the Coyotes. We had previously reported that the Kessel trade led to an increase in ticket sales for Arizona, but now we have an appreciation for just how big that spike has been. "It's certainly satisfying and exciting to see us doing something as a franchise that we feel makes us a much more competitive team and puts us in a better position to win," Coyotes CEO Ahron Cohen said. "The fact that other people in this market are seeing that, fans are seeing that, and they're jumping on board. It's good, positive momentum for this organization." Thursday, 2:03 am
  • Vancouver inks Micheal Ferland to 4-year deal
    Micheal Ferland has signed a four-year, $14 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Ferland was one of the biggest names left on the UFA market. He had 17 goals and 40 points in 71 contests last season. He's solid secondary scorer and is just 27-years-old, so he should be fine for the length of this contract. This is a good pickup for Vancouver as it looks to transition from a rebuilding squad into a contender. Wednesday, 11:39 am
  • A. Nylander has an opportunity in Chicago
    Although Alexander Nylander disappointed in Buffalo, there is a big opportunity for him in Chicago.

    Advice: The Blackhawks acquired Nylander from the Sabres on Tuesday in exchange for Henri Jokiharju. There is an opening available for Nylander on a line with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, but he'll likely first need to prove himself in the AHL at the start of the 2019-20 campaign. He struggled in 2018-19 with 19 points in 49 AHL games and four points in 12 contests with Buffalo, but there is a lot of offensive potential with him. Perhaps the move to Chicago will bring it out. "The one thing about Alex that’s appealing is that he’s had success playing left-hand right wing," Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman said. "With his offensive talent and his skill level, it’s certainly exciting to think of what he could do when you put him with some of the players that we have." Wednesday, 12:35 am
