The Isles definitely make the most sense right now. Fake tweets are still bad.

Bergeron would have looked pretty amazing in a Leafs jersey with Tavares on his wing.

I can't believe Dubas didn't sign him for that. Smh

Iirc he did say he wanted to be closer to home. Rings a bit hollow now, no?

I'm not sure what would be considered hollow about it. He wanted to play at home in front of his friends and family. He got to do that for a full season (and represent his country at the Olympics for the last time). He never said he wanted to stay there forever.

Subban is still unsigned. I find this kind of odd. Has his play really fallen that much?

There's probably still like a dozen UFAs who would all be pretty solid contributors at the right price (which should be easy to get them at now) that I'm genuinely surprised haven't signed yet.

I thought he retired? This is kind of bizarre.

Didn't retire. Went back home to play in the Czech league for a season (where he led his team in scoring). That also gave him the opportunity to participate in the Olympics. But there was always a possibility he'd return to Boston.

Krejci made official too. The Bruins definitely missed him at 2C last season since they never really even tried replacing him.

Been suspected/rumoured for awhile but finally confirmed.

This was the one thing I was a little surprised about.

4 straight (on pace) 90+ point seasons, 4th in league scoring over those 4 seasons. Gaudreau got $9.75mil x 7 (and reportedly turned down at least 1 higher offer) and he was 10th in scoring the past 4 seasons combined and much less consistent (scored at just a 67 and and 71 point pace the two seasons prior to this last one). Granted Gaudreau was 2 years younger than Huberdeau will be once this contract kicks in but there's still good reasons for Huberdeau to get more than Johnny did.

Yeah maybe down the line it's not as good of a deal but that's kinda standard practice for big UFA deals.

Looks like he never had the chance. The Devils filed for arbitration the same day they filed the QO.

Huh... I actually didn't realize they could do that. Always thought the qualifying offer came before any chance of filing for arbitration specifically so a player had a chance to accept it, but you're right that's not the case.

Guess I didn't realize since it's so rare for a team to file for arbitration these days.

He had a 3.5M QO so the team elected arbitration and lost last season to injury

I'm actually a little surprised he didn't just take his qualifying offer when he had the chance. That feels like the highest an arbitrator would award him anyway, and it's probably a little more likely he gets a bit below it.
