Brett Pesce got that Olli Maatta money- six years, $4.025 million per year kicking in for 2018-19. [Canes Country]

Also someone who had a good day yesterday, Mikael Granlund - avoids arbitration and gets $5.75 million annually for three years from the Wild. [Hockey Wilderness]

Another signing came when former Hab traded to Buffalo, defenseman Nathan Bealieu signs for 2 years and $2.4 million per. [Die by the Blade]

Vancouver fans face the reality that the sooner the Sedins (one more year on their contracts leave), the better it probably will be for the team. [Nucks Misconduct]

Speaking of old players in the northwest, as of time of writing only 35% of respondents at the Flames blog would be on board with signing former captain/face-of-the-franchise Jarome Iginla to a contract for 2017-18. [Matchsticks and Gasoline]

Matt Duchene is “pretty relaxed” despite rumors. Also, don’t ask him why he’s counting down the days for the next t-minus 23 months...[]

When it comes to playing for the Islanders, John Tavares says, “I want that to continue”. Sounds like another Steven Stamkos situation unfolding. And when’s the last chance a really, really good player (#1 overall pick, top player in prime) actually willingly left a team via free agency? Just doesn’t seem to happen that much in hockey. Anyways, with Ryan Johansen ($8.0m) would have to be the floor now for Tavares, right? And Connor McDavid ($12.5m) is the new salary ceiling. I’d expect Tavares could seek/get Toews-Kopitar type $10.5 pretty easily.

Another reminder to be thankful that Crosby and Malkin are locked in for less :) []
