    I think that Neilson will be a pleasant surprise for you in Detroit. He does everything well and is a Wings type of player. The only thing that I don't like is the term. They'll be paying him until he's 38. Vanek is a low risk/high reward signing as well.

    Happy for Reimer but I don't get that signing for FLA. Wonder if they plan on protecting Reimer and not Luongo next summer.

    Not sure what the Habs are doing signing Radulov.

    No one will want to go near McDavid with Lucic, Kassian and Maroon not far.

    My tardy thoughts:

    - NJ stole Hall from EDM!
    - I'm a bit sad to see Stamkos not sign with the Leafs, BUT I think it is for the best AND big props to him for taking a significant discount to stay in Tampa. Dude is a class act!
    - I like this deal for MTL more than NSH. Weber gives them SO many things they need right now and can hopefully take the reigns in the locker room.
    - I had more thoughts but I've forgotten them plus they'd be stale by now anyway!

    What are you unsure of? Just curious. Personally, I don't understand why so many fans are so unhappy about the Radulov signing. And it's almost all limited to Habs fans and their counterpart Habs-haters who simply enjoy any opportunity to suggest the Habs are poorly managed. But, I think its all silly and I don't know how anybody doesn't see it as a clearly positive move for the Habs. The overwhelming majority of opinions I read on this are extremely positive. The Habs made a great deal for their 2017 cup chances.

    Firstly, people won't forget about the missed curfew. Who cares? It was way too long ago to act like that's something that we need to hold against him now. All the reports are he's made tons of positive changes over the last four years. To me, Radulov is not "low risk" he's "zero risk." The very worst he can do is play poor hockey and the Habs can move right on from his harmless contract.

    Secondly, people insist on packaging Radulov's deal with Subbans. I think there's a lingering negative perception of MTL's management stemming from the Subban deal and people are having trouble putting it aside and congratulating the Habs for WINNING Radulov (Not just signing him - they flat out won him over many disappointed teams).

    Third, there was nothing else to spend any of that cash on. They objectively got the very most talent 6 million could've bought any team from any player remaining in free agency.

    What's the problem? Radulov was one of the top free agents available, and they got him at a relative bargain on an extremely team-friendly contract term.

    If the Sabres somehow do manage to entice Vesey sign with them, I could see them attempting to find Kane a new home after his baggage seemed to get even heavier after arriving from Winnipeg.

    Regardless of whether they sign Vesey, I think that they'd love to trade Kane.

    Well, yeah... but without Vesey it might be harder to let him go since they'd be left pretty shallow on the left wing.

    So Matt Carkner retired from pro hockey. Most won't blink an eye at that, but I went to school with Matt and got to know him. He's one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Always willing to do anything for anyone. Great team guy as well. Also one of the toughest in pro hockey the last 15 years. I will never forget his last season in the OHL, no one wanted to fight him. Sounds like he's going to be on the coaching staff of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL this season.

    I was so torn when he and Orr had their tilts with each other in the battle of Ontario.

    Would've been nice to at least hear O'Reilly's story of events around the DUI. Just having the charges dropped is a bit unsatisfying...

    Sounds like George McPhee will be the GM of the new Las Vegas team.

    NYR dealt one of their leading scorers, center Derick Brassard, to Ottawa, for center Mika Zibanejad and a second-round draft pick in 2018. (The Senators also received a seventh-round draft pick in 2018.)

    So Roy quits as head coach and VP, gotta say this is probably good for the Avs. Loved Roy as a goalie but his coaching sucks.

    It seems he wants to have a say in everything. In Jr he was the coach, GM and owner which you can get away with at that level. Just does not work that way in the NHL though. John Shannon says Roy and Sakic have not been on the same page for awhile.

    Just read that Cody Hodgson is retiring at 26. Wow. I really thought he would make a few more tries at it. He really looked good during the lockout season.

    Crazy. You would think teams in Europe would sign him.

    What a return for Yakupov. I personally wouldn't have settled for that, but his value was at an all-time low.

    It's not *that* surprising... Though I'm sure Edmonton fought (unsuccessfully) to make the pick a 2nd rounder without conditions. His value wasn't going to improve with the Oilers roster the east it is, though.

    EDIT: Most surprising thing might that the Blues were the high bidder. I would've thought the Pens would try to rehab his value at that price.

    Surprised to see Parenteau get waived. Not so surprised to see Pavelec get waived.

    Crosby has another concussion. Sounds like he got it Friday at practice. Not good.

    The NHL is getting younger and younger every year.

    Looks like ARI is starting the season with D. Strome, Chychrun, Crouse and Dvorak. Flyers are starting with Provorov and Konecny. Leafs with Matthews, Marner, Hyman Nylander, Brown. Jets with Laine, Connor, Ehlers, Hellebuyck. Isles with Barzal and Beauvillier. Falmes with Tkachuk etc....

    The Sarnia Sting of the OHL look like they might be losing Chychrun, Zacha and Konecny all in the same year when they all could go back to Jr. That was suppose to be their core this season. Fans in Sarnia must be going nuts.

    Seems every year more and more 30 something year olds get pushed out for the younger players. Remember when teams used to build around 33-38 year olds? Not anymore.

    Yeah, I would have expected a bridge deal if CGY wasn't going to give 7m+.

    Predictions.

    Art Ross- McDavid. (Was going to go Crosby.... but who knows how much time he may miss. If McDavid stays healthy he should get 100(+) points)
    Hart- McDavid if Edmonton makes playoffs. Price if Edmonton doesn't make it.
    Maurice Richard- Ovechkin
    Selke- Bergeron
    Lady Byng- Gaudreau
    Norris- Subban
    Vezina- Price
    Calder- Matthews
    Jack Adams- Cooper

    Stanley Cup: Tampa Bay over St. Louis
    Conn Smythe- Stamkos

    Ristolainen finally signed. 6 years at 5.4 per. Good deal for Buffalo since he probably wouldn't have been worth what he was asking. I'm guessing this probably means he won't be moved in a trade for Trouba now, though.
