He’s no Chris Osgood or Larry Murphy, that’s for sure

All it took for the Wild to wake up was to put Nick Bonino with JEEK and Greenway. Who knew?

Wild have to mix something up or they lose to a very poor team.

Aside from that very happy for old Patty Marleau. If they are going to win I'd like him to get the winner.

2 years left at $4.5M. Might be a good gamble as a bottom pair PP specialist?

3.25 cash

He’s honestly what the Wings need this year / next year (especially if they’re never going to trust Cholowski).

I debated whether he’d be worth acquiring in a trade but for free it’s a no brained to me.

Very curious to see what happens with Gostisbehere

Ideally the Wings would ship out someone like Staal / Nemeth at the same time

Some speculation that the Panthers might put in a claim with the Ekblad injury.

Yeah I still follow him on Twitter for the comedy value

He has a real penchant for tweeting news out like it's a scoop, but 45 seconds after Bobby Mac and also incorrect

Gostisbehere clears

Waivers is boring this year, bigger names than usual but almost nobody pulls the trigger

I guess Gostisbehere's contract is a bigger problem for more teams than I thought.

If I've learned anything from trying to crack Yzerman's rebuild strategy, it's that he values flexibility moving forward a whole lot. He's not signing anyone to long-term deals (only Larkin and Mantha are currently signed for 22-23), he's not giving anyone a bunch of money for a single year. I wouldn't be surprised if other teams value financial flexibility (especially when there will be plenty of moving parts related to the expansion draft), although getting owners of teams with the necessary cap space (who are probably bad) to sign off on 7 million cash right now is probably the bigger hurdle.
