Good Tuesday to you all. This is your humble correspondent, dishing up some hockey links and other flotsam and jetsam, as we gear up for the NHL expansion draft tomorrow and also the regular draft this weekend. For more on the Avs’ draft plans (the regular draft), click here. Let’s start off with a note on our beloved Foppa, Peter Forsberg:

  • Foppa turned 48 today. Hard to believe, right, at least to us old Avs watchers? Man. I’m not saying it feels just like yesterday, because it doesn’t. But I DO still remember seeing him in person for the first time. I believe it was the first day of training camp, 1995, at the old DU Arena. His English wasn’t very good and he looked like a…kid. Hey, he still looks good for his age, right?
  • A career highlight for me remains: sitting in the passenger seat of his cool Audi as he drove around his hometown of Ornskoldsvik, Sweden, pointing out landmarks from his childhood. That wasn’t so bad.
  • So, remember: no team except the Seattle Kraken can announce anything in the way of trades or signings until Thursday at 11 a.m. The Kraken have until tomorrow to negotiate exclusively with any NHL unrestricted free agents who were not protected for the expansion draft tomorrow. Yes, that includes Gabe Landeskog and, no, I haven’t heard of any offer that’s been made his way.
  • A great get here by colleague Christian Arnold. An NHL source with direct knowledge told NYI Hockey Now that Seattle is keen on Josh Bailey, but the Islanders are trying to push them towards Jordan Eberle. Could the Isles and Kraken hook up on the NHL trade market so the Islanders can keep Bailey? (NYI Hockey Now)
  • The trade for defenseman Ryan Ellis on the NHL trade front was just the beginning for the wheeling and dealing Flyers. Buckle up! (Philly Hockey Now)
  • Sammi Silber (who is KILLING it in Washington like an old pro) steered head-on into the controversial Capitals decision to protect Trevor van Riemsdyk and expose Justin Schultz. (Washington Hockey Now)
  • The San Jose Sharks decided Adin Hill was starting-goalie material and snagged him on the nHL trade market just under the Saturday deadline. Now it appears his salary cap hit will be higher than expected. Sheng Peng explains. (San Jose Hockey Now)
  • NHL Draft prospect Logan Mailloux renounced himself from the 2021 NHL Draft after being fined for photographic activity constituting the invasion of privacy as well as defamation. (TSN)
  • After trying hard to sign him last offseason and then to acquire him at the NHL Trade Deadline, it appears the Montreal Canadiens are set to take another stab at signing forward Mike Hoffman. (TSN)
  •  

    Speaking of the Montreal Canadiens, are the Shea Weber and Carey Price situations the perfect opportunity for the Habs to move on for both veterans? (Montreal Gazette)

This Landeskog situation is driving my crazy. We he stay or will he go? It seems like we will know by the end of the week, one way or another.

This page is so difficult to read as it constantly scrolls up or down every few seconds. Frustrating

Chris

Yes it’s frustrating on my iPhone

Nathan Edwards

Nope, never had an issue with glitches here. Just heard the Avs are possibly looking to replace Saad with Phil Kessel? Please don’t offer a 2nd rounder for him. Coyotes would retain half of his salary. I am not sure I want Gabe back on a 7 year deal. I would surely give him 5 years no issues.

Only when the cat lays down on the keyboard.

Yeah, seems like the jumping page has gotten a bit worse as of late. It’s all of the ads. New ads constantly popping in and resizing. Viewing in Safari on an iPhone 12.
