Bad deal for Arvidsson, great deal for Predators

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 16:02:44 GMT

Viktor Arvidsson's seven-year $29.75 M deal is a huge win for Nashville, and potentially a blown chance for the Swedish forward.



Rangers are ‘right on the cusp,’ says Shattenkirk

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 20:44:07 GMT

Since missing the playoffs in 2010, the New York Rangers have made it to the Eastern Conference Final three times, and to the Stanley Cup Final once. Instead, they’ve lost to the L.A. Kings in the final and watched their division rivals from Pittsburgh win it twice in a row, even losing to the Penguins in the first round in 2016. The Rangers went after prized free agent defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk with a four-year contract worth $26.6 million.



Vegas GM doesn’t appear to be in any hurry to move extra d-men

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 01:40:06 GMT

The Vegas Golden Knights currently have 10 defensemen under contract — and that is without Nate Schmidt signed. Schmidt and the Golden Knights have an arbitration hearing scheduled for Aug. 3, so there is still plenty of time for them to negotiate a new deal for the restricted free agent blue liner without having a neutral third party decide the matter. Schmidt’s agent, Matt Keator, told the Las Vegas Review Journal that talks with the Golden Knights have been positive, which lends to optimism that perhaps the club and player will avoid this whole process with a deal.



New addition Thompson thinks Senators are ‘ready to win’

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 14:33:53 GMT

Thompson is excited about the opportunity to join the Senators and believes the success of the team last season was not a fluke. “This team now is ready to win,” he told Ken Warren of the Ottawa Sun this past week. “I don’t think this was a Cinderella team, it was the real deal.



Haggerty: Trumpeting Bruins defense as team's 'strength' might be a tad premature

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 20:09:57 GMT

It’s a slow period for hockey right now, so the NHL Network is doing a tremendously solid thing by recapping each of the 31 teams' situations after the expansion, draft and free agency periods altered many rosters. MORE What's left out there in free agency for Bruins?  This week, the NHL Network turned its TV eyes to the Bruins and pointed to their right-shot heavy stable of defensemen as the clear strength of the team. That perception is quite the 180-degree turn from just a couple of years ago when the B’s were bereft of top-four defensemen on the back end after shipping out Johnny Boychuk and Dougie Hamilton. This was further compounded by No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara approaching 40, and,



Ducks prospect Jones seems ready to make the jump to the NHL

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 18:12:15 GMT

The Anaheim Ducks had a chance to restock their prospect cupboard during the 2016 draft with a pair of first-round picks, selecting Max Jones with the No. 24 overall pick and Sam Steel with the No. 30 pick. Both prospects had strong seasons in 2016-17 with their junior teams — Steel recorded 131 points in 66 games with the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League, while Jones was a point-per-game player for the OHL’s London Knights before getting his first taste of pro hockey with a nine-game look in the American Hockey League playoffs with the San Diego Gulls.



Patrick Kane bummed about losing Artemi Panarin

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 16:06:00 GMT

Other than Sidney Crosby, no NHL player has more points over the last four seasons than Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks with 328 in 294 games, with 136 of them goals. Panaerin was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets in a deal that brought Brandon Saad back to the Blackhawks. What does Kane think about losing his wingman?



End to End: Expectations for Scott Laughton in 2017-18

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 22:13:38 GMT

Throughout the offseason, we’ll ask questions about the Flyers to our resident hockey analysts and see what they have to say. Going End to End today are CSNPhilly.com reporters John Boruk, Tom Dougherty, Jordan Hall and Greg Paone. The topic: The state of Flyers captain Claude Giroux. Boruk The state of Giroux is more of a state of mind at this point of his career. There was one very revealing quote that surfaced following his breakout day when he said, “Your mind wants to do something but your body doesn’t do it, it’s frustrating.” That tells me the dynamic part of his game that we came to expect and admire for much of his career is perhaps no longer there, and he’s searching for a way to reinvent



Morning Skate: Blackhawks get band back together

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 15:10:46 GMT

Detroit Red Wings prospect Libor Sulak intrigues with skating ability

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 22:15:00 GMT

Libor Sulak intrigues with the way he can skate.  The defenseman is an under-the-radar signing the Detroit Red Wings made this spring. After getting another chance to impress in development camp, Sulak will get a chance to make a statement come autumn.  “Libor will be at camp,” director of player evaluation Jiri Fischer told the Free Press. “Should get into some exhibition games.” Sulak, 23, already had a contract to play for Lahti of the Finnish hockey league next season, and it is still likely he ends up there (he will make more money in Finland than in the AHL). The Wings signed Sulak in May to a two-year contract, with the understanding that he will definitely play in North America in the



Penguins, Dumoulin seem pretty far apart with their arbitration numbers

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 17:10:13 GMT

The Pittsburgh Penguins have two arbitration hearings scheduled with restricted free agents (Brian Dumoulin and Conor Sheary) over the next few weeks, and on Saturday we found out some of the numbers being thrown around for one of them. Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman has the arbitration numbers for Dumoulin, with the defender asking for $4.35 million, while the team is offering $1.95 million. Dumoulin has to know he is not going to get $4.35 million, while the Penguins have to know they are probably going to have to pay more than $1.95 million to get him re-signed.



Even without NHL players, USA Hockey officials optimistic about potential Olympic roster

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 18:43:00 GMT

Today’s young American hockey players have grown up believing the dream of playing in the Olympics before turning pro only happens in movies. “I watched ‘Miracle’ and that’s how it used to be,” University of Denver player Troy Terry said. “It was pretty cool.  That’s a little different than the Olympics I’ve grown up watching.” Because the NHL has allowed its players to compete in the Olympics continuously since 1998, Terry has only known Olympic hockey as an NHL event. But Terry and his fellow college players, plus those with minor league-only contracts or Americans playing pro in Europe, suddenly have Olympic opportunities that weren’t there a year ago. Even though USA Hockey officials would



Hall urges Hischier to ‘develop at his own pace’

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 00:32:09 GMT

The New Jersey Devils won the lottery and selected Nico Hischier first overall. With that comes even greater expectations on the player heading into their first training camp. We’re less than two months away from the opening of training camps across the league. But on a team that has worked this summer to bolster its offense, the addition of the 18-year-old Hischier could have an immediate impact in that department in October. Certainly, fans in New Jersey will hope so. Taylor Hall knows all about the pressures of being taken first overall. The Oilers selected him at that spot in 2010, but dealt him to New Jersey last summer, removing a very talented forward from their roster in order to gain

Jayce Hawryluk could be intriguing prospect for Panthers this season

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 18:19:00 GMT

Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon has talked extensively this offseason about giving young players an opportunity to play and trying to create a faster, more up-tempo, aggressive roster. One of the young players that might get an opportunity to make that sort of an impact is 2014 second-round draft pick Jayce Hawryluk. Throughout his junior days in the Western Hockey League, Hawryluk developed a reputation for being the type of player you to have on your team and absolutely hate to play against — in other words, a classic pest.



10 NHL Teams Trending Up for 2017-18

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 14:30:36 GMT

Training camps don’t start until mid-September. At least 30 serviceable free agents are still available — enough for one per team. However, by and large, the off-season work in terms of roster building is already complete. That means, on paper, pundits can start predicting the future and the direction each of the NHL’s 31 franchises are trending for the 2017-18 season — be it up, down or staying the course. This is the first of a three-part series, focusing on 10 teams that appear to be trending up: 1) Dallas Stars From best in the West in 2016 to missing the playoffs in 2017 — largely because of a rash of injuries — the Stars have made several moves since the end of the season to ensure a post-season



Habs may lean more on Montoya to keep Price refreshed

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 22:31:40 GMT

The Montreal Canadiens committed money (a lot of money) and term to Carey Price with his contract extension at the beginning of this month. He is the backbone for this team, for its success. He’s also about to turn 30 years old next month, with 509 career games in the NHL, entering the league in 2007-08. For as great as he has been, the Habs may place added responsibilities on the shoulders of their back-up, a title currently held by Al Montoya. In an interview with the Habs’ website, the club’s goaltending coach Stephane Waite said that, in his mind, the days of starting goalies playing 65 to 70 games are done. It’s too tall an order in today’s NHL. Price has, on three occasions, breached the
