Leafs resign Spezza, 1 year 700k. Last season he had 9 goals and 25 points in 58 games.

Good for him. He was never going to be worth that final year, but I'm glad he's home and doing well in his role. He's a nice guy.

The Penguins bought out Jack Johnson.


The Johnson deal was AWFUL on day one.

Curious which GM will offer Johnson his next godawful contract.

How did Columbus end up in a place where they had 16 guys in their system as RFAs at the same time?

Wennberg is just overpaid if he's bought out he'd be a good choice for the Stars to go after like Grabner.

The fact that Toronto still wants Simmonds tells you all you need to know about their management competence. Simmonds hasn't been good for any of his four teams over the last two years.

I doubt Stamkos would get traded, but if Stamkos did agree to a trade he'd want to go to another contender. The Stars could afford him if they traded Radulov to another team.

I like Stamkos a lot, but this only makes sense if Bishop complained to management about not knowing anyone on IR.

I think the take away from the last day or two of posts is that a lot of teams are screwed.

I'm surprised at how much movement there is. Also, I think Anderson despised Columbus management, so I'm curious as to how much he likes Montreal.

I think we have no idea how bad the shutdown and uncertainty for 2020-21 has really impacted teams - I suspect it is a lot worse than anyone outside of the league and the organizations knows.

Heck, I wonder how many of these RFAs not getting qualifying offers comes from the fact team are less interested in filling out AHL rosters than in years past.

So if a team doesn't qualify someone like Brett Ritchie (at whatever inflated price the qualifying offer would have to be), then he becomes a free agent. If the team really wants to keep him, they can try to re-sign him at a lower price. Or the team can probably go out on the market and find a comparable player for less than what it would have taken to qualify the RFA. I think there is going to be a lot of bottom feeding (or internal promotion of guys on cheap contracts) by a lot of teams.

I think this will be quite true. Which makes me think the market for someone like Cogliano wouldn't be all that great. No team, in the current circumstances, is in a rush to trade for a guy making $3million and scoring zero goals (and really not even the threat of offense) regardless of how good at defense he is.

It’s hard to believe that Brenden Dillon is 34 years old already.

He's not. He'll be 34 when this contract ends.

Is Dillon good now? I haven't really been paying attention to him these last 7-8 years.

DeMelo is staying in Winnipeg, 4-yr/$3M AAV. Not so disappointed considering we re-sign Sekera.
