That’s Wild

  • Not a lot of news surrounding the Minnesota Wild, but predicting who the team might protect for the upcoming expansion draft next year, is worth a second look. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • Nico Sturm’s NHL career is still early and after signing his second contract with the Wild last week, he’s looking forward to a larger opportunity in 2020-21. [Dan Myers - NHL]

Off the trail...

  • The Philadelphia Flyers have found themselves quiet in the middle of a hectic offseason, but fans are certainly split whether that is a good idea or not. Is this team good? Is this team actually bad and needs to drastically improve through trades and free agency? [Broad Street Hockey]
  • The Ottawa Senators made a significant splash in free agency on Thursday. That’s right, you didn’t read that wrong. The basement-designated club locked up winger Evgenii Dadonov for three years and a cap hit of $5-million per year. [Silver Seven Sens]
  • Imagine, with your star player still unsigned and a restricted free agent with your limited cap space, pursuing an aging unrestricted free agent. Makes you think.
