  • The Tampa Bay Lightning are trying to steal away the attention from their state rivals, the Florida Panthers. After it was reported that Steven Stamkos was going to test the free market, the Bolts went ahead and acquired the rights to Jake Guentzel from the Carolina Hurricanes. It didn't take long for the two sides to reach an agreement, as a few hours later, news of a contract for Guentzel was widely reported.
  • The Panthers got to celebrate their big win yesterday and Mother Nature decided to rain on their parade, quite literally. Still, the champion team and their fans managed to make the most of the day and it seemed everyone had a good time.
  • The Toronto Maple Leafs seemed to have liked what they saw from Max Domi last season. The 29-year-old agreed to a 4-year extension with the Leafs worth $3.75M AAV. They have also extended Timothy Liljegren for two years on a $3M AAV contract.
  • It's fortunate for the Leafs that they were able to lock in Max Domi because not everyone is keen on staying with the team. Tyler Bertuzzi has signed with Chicago and Nick Robertson has informed the team that he would like to be traded.
  • Men's International hockey is about to become fun again. Team Canada will showcase a group of Crosby, McDavid, and MacKinnon in next year's four-nations tournament. The tournament is supposed to be a preview of the upcoming 2026 Winter Olympics where the NHL is expected to be sending its players.
  • Speaking of Team Canada, to nobody's surprise, the NHL teams of the 4 players involved in the 2018 Hockey Canada assault investigation will not be offering qualifying offers and therefore the players will become UFAs as of today. It is highly unlikely that any team will go near any of the 4 players (as well as ex-NHLer Alex Formenton) until the trial is completed at the very least.
  • The Jack Campbell experiment in Edmonton is officially over. The team has placed the struggling goalie on waivers for the purpose of a buyout.
