Caps trade Marcus Johansson to NJ for 2018 2nd, 3rd. NJ with the steal, probably wasn't on market to the whole league I bet, all he had was a modified NTC.

All because Kuznetsov got the big contract. $7.8M per.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Alexander Radulov signs with Dallas 5 years for $31.25 Million ($6.25M AAV). Dallas looking like a serious contender now.

Montreal signs Ales Hemsky for 1 year @ $1 Million. Habs fans are not happy with any of Bergy's moves.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Grenier signs one year, two way contract with Panthers.

I guess Jim didn't see anything in his game worth keeping him around for.

I'm not sold on Dallas and Calgary until they improve their goaltending more. Both teams made big moves this summer, but can Ben Bishop or Mike Smith really carry the team deep in the playoffs? I'm not sold. Edmonton and Anaheim rank quite a bit above those two in my opinion.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

From SN

It appears Ilya Kovalchuk’s return to the NHL will be postponed for at least another year.

He will be 35 at the start of the 18-19 season and will be a full FA, free to sign anywhere.

Watch Tryamkin come back after he doesn't get paid in 2018/19. ;)

Sign Kovie, team russia on Canucks in 2019.

Kovie - Burmistrov - Goldy

Tryamkin

I like your idea here. Kovi was always one of my fave players, I'd luv to see him here. We haven't had a true sniper in the lineup since Nasi I guess. With the Sedins off the books, it'd be a nice reset and nice splash to bring in Kovi and Evander the Party Man Kane in the offseason of 2018. :P

If some NHL team had the "kahunas" to do it, (not us), and if one of them could play center,
an old man line of Jagr, Doan and Iginla could probably be done for 6 mill or less.

Wouldn't that be a kick if they racked up some points-to prove one.

Won't Kovalchuk be 36 in 2019? Will he even be a true sniper at that point?

Apparently Kovalchuk was pressured by Putin to stay in Russia. Very important for Russia to win Gold in an election year.
