    Well it applies from Vegas perspective but for Hyka it's just one more year wasted playing in the AHL as he undoubtedly had offers from the top European leagues.

    Good point but he did sign the contract so he must have thought that Vegas' offer was better than any other offer he was receiving.

    Kevin Lowe ensures even if he's fired for gross incompetence, that the Lowe name stays in Edmonton. :laugh:

    Kevin probably just doesn't want him moving back in and living in his basement.

    I mean Keegan earned the extension but Kevin Lowe jokes are low hanging fruit so go for it I guess.

    Well, nothing against the kid but his old man's done enough damage to earn taking a few shots, I'd say.

    Be honest, if MacT had a son who was draft-eligible this year and the Oilers took him, would that not raise a few eyebrows? :laugh:

    That's dumb, they re-signed Lowe because he was very good in the AHL for the organization and he's effective depth.

    He got a bunch of call ups and he'll fight for a spot next season. Why do you want him to sulk and go home?

    Even 24-25 yo players need development time, especially when coming over to NA.

    Again, nothing against the kid I'm sure he's decent filler, but his old man has a lot of people rolling their eyes, that's all.

    That's not what happened though is it?

    Keegan played well and earned an extension. No need to include his father into the discussion at all.

    Christoffer is scheduled to be a RFA this summer with Edmonton though this deal suggests he will likely not be qualified

    It appears Tampa has signed UFA Kevin Lynch to an NHL contract
    https://articles.syracuse.com/crunc...w_contract_baby.amp?__twitter_impression=true

    (Jessica is Kevin Lynch's wife)

    No confirmation from Tampa yet. Lynch was a 2nd round pick of Columbus who has been playing on AHL deals the last few seasons.

    Despite this coming through the AHL team, the link says it's an NHL deal. Also, the player in question is RFA Daniel Walcott

    So this would be the same as the Suomela then, right?
    Was either processed June 1 and not announced, or can't actually be finalized until July 1

    Should be the same situation. The article says he was "signed earlier this week", so could have been by the June 1st cutoff. Or maybe they just agreed to terms and we won't hear the official inking for a while.

    edit, here you go. June 1st:
