Kicking off the thread for next season with a pretty big injury update:

Marchand is out until mid-January, Pasta out until mid-February.

That's a shame

Season is due to start 1st January, right? Full 82 game schedule?

The way the infection/transmission rates are trending at the moment I wouldn't cling to that as being even remotely a firm date.
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

I wouldn't say either of those are set in stone but yes that's the NHL's current position.

I think I overheard on one of the pods, that they were thinking it'll be a 60 game condensed schedule.

Habs extend Jake Allen for another 2 years at $2.875 M...added to Price's $10.5M that's nearly $15M for next season and more than $13M for the following to just for their goaltending. That seems like...um..a LOT  :o

Price is too much by himself, so Allen at 2.8 isn't bad lol.

Especially considering, before this past season, Allen had been . . . well, bad for a number of years. Most of his career, he's been a below average goalie. Was that because he couldn't handle the workload as a starter? Sure, maybe, but I'd want to see that before I signed up for more years with him on the roster.

Yeah, it's an interesting approach. I don't think ideally you pay that much for a backup unless it's a platoon situation or you're at least giving the guy 30% of the games; and if that's the case, you're paying Price way too much.

I'm guessing Bergevin is concerned about Price staying healthy, and wants to have a guy that conceivably keep the team in it over potentially long stretches - whether Allen's career is trending towards Schnieder or Halak, we'll have to see.

Compressed season and all, maybe you're right in that he's insurance for Price's inevitable injuries.

Which GM, in his current tenure, has signed AND bought out the most players?

Great selection, just by statistical likelihood. Poile has been with the team since its inception, 1997. Capfriendly shows they have bought out 9 players in totality (hi Dicky!).

That's probably the highest raw total for any one tenure, but a pretty low rate, considering how many signings he has done (296). Lou Lamoriello comes close during his Devils tenure.

The really fun one is Brad Treliving who has signed 141 contracts and 6 buyouts already. Chris Tanev and Jacob Markstrom might not be far behind if he still has a job.
