Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic: The Nashville Predators and pending UFA forward Filip Forsberg have started negotiations again but get the sense the gap is still there. There is still lots of time. Believe the sides will eventually work out a deal. The Calgary Flames will aggressively try to re-sign forward Johnny Gaudreau and they may want to know sooner than later if a deal can be done – possibly in the next couple of weeks. The Flames also have to sign RFA forward

Can Martin Necas regain his scoring touch and a possible move to center? Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer: The Carolina Hurricanes could be looking for a scorer this offseason through trade or free agency, or could the scorer come from within – Martin Necas. After 14 goals and 41 points in 53 in games in 2020-21, he followed it up with 14 goals and 40 points in 78 games this past season. Necas plans on having a bounce-back season next year but the pending RFA will need a new contract first. “I would love to stay,” Necas said. “We’ve got to figure everything out this summer. I hope it will end good for both ways and I’ll be here next year.”

EDMONTON — The Oilers learned plenty of lessons this spring. And a team looking for a playoff breakthrough finally did just that. Edmonton fought back from a 3-2 deficit to beat the Los Angeles Kings in seven games in the opening round before disposing of the Calgary Flames in five to advance to its first Western Conference final in a generation. The Oilers are now also keenly aware they’ll need to give even more if the once-proud franchise is going to reach its ultimate goal. /* if ( "1" == true && 'undefined' !== typeof window.getIndexAds ) { var so = {preroll:{1:{1:{siteID:191888},2:{siteID:191889}}}}; adServerUrl = window.getIndexAds( 'http://pubads.g.doubleclick.net/gampad/ads?sz=640x360&cust_params=domain%3Dsportsnet.ca&iu=%2F7326%2Fen

NHL Scout’s Analysis: How the Flames could navigate a complicated off-season

Source: Sportsnet
Date: 2022-06-06

As the dust settles and emotions subside it’s time to review the season that was for the Calgary Flames. I personally had the Flames as my Stanley Cup winner in the highly scientific Sportsnet pre-playoff predictions. I even went as far as to suggest Jacob Markstrom would win the Conn Smythe as the playoff MVP. Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers had other ideas. The Flames have the potential to be a very good team again next season, but Brad Treliving is going to have a busy summer attempting to keep most of this group together. They have some key UFA and RFA contracts that will need to be negotiated and massaged to fit under the $82.5 million dollar salary cap for

Date: 2022-06-04

A quick mix of the things we gleaned from the week of hockey, serious and less so, and rolling four lines deep. Igor’s better (so far). 1. Pretend to be Kyle Dubas for a minute and sketch — pencil only! — your proposed defence pairings for Opening Night 2022, based solely on players under club control You’ll likely come up with something like this: Morgan Rielly – T.J. Brodie Jake Muzzin – Justin Holl Mark Giordano – Timothy Liljegren Rasmus Sandin Remember, we said pencil. Liljegren and Sandin are restricted free agents in need of raises, which should be manageable because neither has arbitration rights nor the gaudy stat lines that would demand long-term commitments right away. Midseason rental Ilya Lyubushkin received positive reviews and was a welcome physical presence on the right. He’s a UFA and could be re-signed. More intriguin
