    Bizarre offseason.

    - Trade Shaw (after a career year? to create cap space, when the Blackhawks said he wasn't available a week for the deal?)
    - Low ball Aho
    - Sign another 4th liner

    If we're gonna go with career year for Shaw. Nick Cousins and Ben Chiarot are coming off career years. :sarcasm:

    But I agree, this off-season is a bit odd.

    Updated the OP with Hudon, Lehkonen, and Armia filing for arbitration today.



    McCarron, who is also eligible for arbitration, didn't file any. We haven't gotten any word on if he's accepted his QO. Although the night before the draft, Bergevin was talking about him having to prove himself again at camp, which could me that he's accepted his QO and has been signed. I do find it odd that there has been no official announcement on that yet.

    Curious why Fleury isn't considered a wildcard after a solid rookie season in the AHL

    I'm looking forward to the meetings between the Canadiens and the Bruins. I think the Bruins fans will be in pain after their overaged and overrated team takes it on the chin. Bergeron won't be any better than he was against the Blues. Kresjci won't even be useful trade bait. Chara has been shown to be less than immortal. Thhe Habs could make the playoffs in 2020, but they will be even better in 222021 and 2022. I think the Leafs hope some team signs Marner to an offer sheet and they won't match, thereby gaining a bunch of high draft picks. I think that Bergevin's only bad move recently was to re-sign Hudon't. for whom a 10-goal season is a mountain and a 14-goal season is an Everest.

    Even though we just had a very pedestrian season and are about to have another one...

    I miss hockey.

    I also can't wait for it all to start again. But I wouldn't call last season pedestrian.

    In looking for full games of our just drafted prospects i stumbled upon a live game from the New Zealand league on youtube and actually watched it for a few minutes. So clearly I miss hockey.

    I recall last year, Edmonton also interviewed Mellanby after they fired Chiarelli.

    IIRC he was in discussion for Vegas too. I'd be curious as to what he's contributed to the team/his role is.

    I think you're right. For Edmonton, they had spoken to Sean Burke, as well.

    Russo confirms Wild asked permission to speak with Mellanby. He also adds that Mellanby will be moving to Wisconsin in a few weeks, bringing him closer to Minnesota. I believe at the moment, despite being the Habs' Assistant GM, he currently lives in St. Louis.



    Other candidates that may be considered are Tom Fitzgerald and Bill Guerin, who were part of the process from last year's search for a GM before Fenton's hiring. He also lists Mark Hunter and Chris Drury as possible candidates. He even mentions they may get in touch with Don Waddell, whose contract with Carolina has expired, despite him still being their GM.

    So will Bergevin hire a new Assistant GM or if it’s Lapointe, a new guy in his staff ?

    My guess is Lapointe will be promoted to Assistant GM if Mellanby gets this gig.
