  • The proposals from team and player -- with a $3 million gap — for Calvin de Haan’s next contract are into the arbitrator. The hearing is Wednesday. We assume it doesn’t get that far. [LHH |
  • The Hockey PDOcast kicked off with 12 minutes on The Tavares Question. [Hockey PDOcast]
  • The Tavares free agency encyclopedia has been updated accordingly. [LHH]

  • The Sabres reached a two-year, $2.4 million AAV deal with Habs recapture Nathan Beaulieu. [Sabres]

  • The risk of the bridge deal. [Puck Daddy]
  • Hot-taking the Hurricanes’ attendance issues. [Canes Country]
  • Former Islanders goalie guru (or something) Mike Dunham lands with the Bruins. [Bangor Daily News]
