I think Kapanen is a skater.

So they use their best trade chip and walk out of the third round in reportedly one of the deepest drafts with only one skater who is 24 years old, carries  3.2 mil cap hit and they had previously traded away

yes but I'm pretty sure Kapanen is going to help them a lot more in the short-term than anyone they would have drafted with that pick. His cap hit is also pretty reasonable (plus the Leafs paid him his bonus already so not much cost to the Pens when revenues are probably a bigger concern for them than they are in Toronto).

2nd/3rd round picks are total crapshoots for the most part. many of them never sniff the NHL.

@tsn_wally: #sens Dorion says they did not qualify Duclair. Dorion says that Duclair acted as his own agent and that they offered him a “substantial raise” but that Duclair will be headed to free agency.

 

@EvolvingHockey: We projected 2 years at $3.4 million if Duclair re-signed in Ottawa. It will be interesting to see what he can get on the open market.

Fun to see some 02s my son played with and against over the years get drafted, some others will be eligible next year. A few we were hoping got taken did not. One I was really hoping someone would take late is Pierre’s son, a good kid and a damn good hockey player. Ugh, huge disappointment for them. Bs took a local kid we know well in the 6th, Riley Duran - dream scenario to have hometown team take him.

I had seen that Pierre's kid was on the Central Scouting list, but didn't think he would go.

Thrilled for Duran though, I've known his dad for years.

A few interesting RFA around the league not qualified. Mark Jankowski (CGY) and Nick Cousins (VGK) jump out as two who could help the Leafs become "harder to play against".

So far today, the Flyers have drafted guys with first names of Emil and Zayde. 

Makes me yearn for the days of traditional hockey names like Zarley.

Surprised they didn't add to their stockpile of Travises (Travi??).

Zarley Zalapski 

The best hockey name ever.

They also just gave Murray away to the Devils. 

Edit: cleared 11.8 mil in the past 24 hrs.

Ottawa has acquired Erik Gudbranson from Anaheim in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.

$4mil cap for one year

He played consistently well for the Ducks.

I think most feel the term is fine and money is fine but not together.  One or the other. A massive risk given the game he plays and season he just had.

Maybe bergy is a genius. Maybe a buffoon. Based on his past moves I think he trends closer to the latter. At least he's making a move, I guess. Time will tell.

@WPGMurat: Paul Stastny may be headed back to Winnipeg. 

Multiple, independent sources tell me a trade would involve draft picks heading in both directions and the deal should be announced tomorrow.

I believe the rumblings were first reported by Jason Bell of the Winnipeg Free Press.

Yeah speculation I saw was if they can get a couple picks for Stastny, they could potentially turn around and package them with Fleury to help move him. I have no idea what kind of return they get for one year of Stastny at $6.5M though.

There was also Twitter speculation maybe they go after Joe Thornton (not too far from San Jose, DeBoer connection).

I think we'll see a few big money signings but a lot of bargain basement ones today.  The folks in the middle might find their asking price dropping as early as tomorrow. 

A couple of the midlevel goalies coming off good years like Khudobin/Greiss might really get squeezed.

It feels like a Chiarelli deal...not only do you give good $ and term but somehow you also include some no-trade provisions (how Chris Kelly got no trade provisions is an all time head scratcher to me...I mean how will you ever find another solid third line center)..Anderson has great size and is intriguing as hell but he's had over 30 points exactly once in his career...will be interesting to see how this deal plays out.

Panthers sign Radko Gudas 3 x 2.5 Mil.

That seems too expensive and a year too long

I think if the Josh Anderson extension taught us anything, it's guys who are physical and can kind of play still get a premium.

Khudobin looks like a bargain compared to Murray.

Lightning placed Tyler Johnson on waivers surprisingly. 

@CapFriendly: Placing Tyler Johnson on waivers could also be a way for Tampa to get around his No Trade Clause.

Meaning that Tampa could have a deal in place where a club has agreed to pick him up off waivers, and then that club makes a separate deal for 'future considerations' with Tampa. https://twitter.com/CapFriendly/status/1314598895247392779

@AntSanPhilly: While the Flyers have been involved in discussions with Kevin Shattenkirk today, they are unlikely to sign him unless they decide to spend more money/go longer-term.

He has several offers right now, and I'm led to believe they are better than the Flyers are willing to spend.
