    Montour flew home for son's birth, was back for Game 2 with Panthers

    He had just played in the first Stanley Cup Final game of his career, Game 1 against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday, something that might have left him restless and sleepless anyway. But instead of hopping on the Florida Panthers team bus postgame to return to their Las Vegas hotel, Montour was sitting alone on a private plane jetting across the country.
    Just after the game ended, coach Paul Maurice and general manager Bill Zito informed Montour that his wife, Ryian, due with the couple's first baby on June 18 and expected to be induced June 14, had gone into labor just before the game started.

    Provorov goes to Blue Jackets in 3-team trade with Flyers, Kings

    Ivan Provorov was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday in a three-team deal also involving the Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings.

    Provorov, along with forward Hayden Hodgson, were traded to the Kings for goalie Cal Petersen, defenseman Sean Walker, defenseman prospect Helge Grans and a second-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft. The Flyers also traded defenseman Kevin Connauton to the Blue Jackets for the Kings' first-round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft and a second-round pick in the 2024 or 2025 NHL Draft.

    Provorov was then traded to the Blue Jackets for Connauton.

    Devils to begin contract talks with Meier this week, GM says

    BUFFALO -- The New Jersey Devils this week will begin serious discussions to lock up Timo Meier long term, general manager Tom Fitzgerald said Tuesday.

    Fitzgerald said the plan is to speak with Meier's agent, Claude Lemieux, in the coming days in an attempt to woo the forward into signing a multiyear pact. The 26-year-old becomes a restricted free agent July 1 and is one year away from unrestricted free agency, a scenario New Jersey would like to avoid.

    "We would love nothing better to tie him up long term," Fitzgerald told NHL.com at the NHL Scouting Combine. "That's our goal. That's what Claude and I will go through.

    "I want them to understand what New Jersey is, what the organization is, the living -- I think New Jersey is a diamond in the rough -- the travel, all the positive things. Give him a chance to settle in and go: 'OK, I hope you want to be here.' Those are some of the things we'll go through."

    I'm hoping the Jets can get a sign and trade with Dubois. They have very little leverage so we will see.

    Re: NHL News and Notes Thread.

    Explain the need for a sign and trade? Surely the top FA is worth more than what you’re getting back.

    current team is the only one that can offer 8 years. A UFA can only sign 7. The sign and trade gets the new team the extra year and the old team gets a little sweetener to not lose the player for nothing.

    This under the assumption the player or the team don't want to continue their relationship for whatever reason (cap, family, etc)

    Dubois has asked for trades twice in his career and he's not even in his mid 20s. Seems to me he's not exactly the type of teammate you'd want to be on your squad.

    A big to-do over this signing. Like the Blue Jackets are the second coming. The main stream hockey media seems to love this. But Severson who? Here's the truth:

    Vince Z. Mercogliano: “Nothing at all against Severson, who is a fine player, but I’m seeing multiple people refer to him as the top free agent available in this summer’s class…?

    He was a bottom-pair guy in NJ and now he’s one of the 40 highest-paid D-men in the league. Am I missing something?”
    Charlie O’Connor: “Here’s the thing with Columbus. While I am not at all convinced that they are ready to turn the corner into contention, they signed a 29-year old Johnny Gaudreau to a 7 year deal last summer & are going to hire Mike friggin Babcock. It’s not like this win-now philosophy is new.”
    @domluszczyszyn: Columbus makes a big splash with Damon Severson, paying him like a top pair defenseman with eight years of term. He's an underrated player now, but he's now far from an underpaid one.
    The NJ Devils don't tend to make poor trades. The Blue Jackets took a 3rd-line pairing guy and paid him as a top-pairing guy. He'll end up being a 2nd line defender. You don't look smart paying all that money to a player in that position.

    Puck Pedia: salary breakdown.

    2023-24: $6 million salary and a $2 million signing bonus
    2024-25: $6 million salary and a $2 million signing bonus
    2025-26: $5.5 million salary and a $2 million signing bonus
    2026-27: $4.1 million salary and a $2 million signing bonus
    2027-28: $3.3 million salary and a $1.8 million signing bonus
    2028-29: $4.1 million salary and a $1 million signing bonus
    2029-30: $5.1 million salary
    2030-31: $5.1 million salary

    He’ll have a no-trade clause for the first four years, a 20-team no-trade in year five, and a 12-team no-trade for the final three years of the contract.

    Re: NHL News and Notes Thread.

    Ask yourself how you'd feel if the Sabres threw that money and term at a 3rd-line defender, while giving up a 3rd round pick. It may work for Columbus, it may not and will tie up a lot of money for 5-6 years -and the no-trade clause for this type of player is just hilarious. They are stuck with him.

    Sportsnet 590 The FAN: Elliotte Friedman on The Jeff Marek Show on the offseason ahead for the Winnipeg Jets.

    Marek: “One team I want to throw in there quickly, I think we’re all expecting something big at some point. I don’t know which domino is going to be the first, but I mentioned the Winnipeg Jets a couple seconds ago.’

    We all now and suspect what the moves are going to be and whose names are on the front burner here.

    How quickly do you think (GM Kevin) Cheveldayoff gets to work now that it seems like, to be blunt, trade season is kind of on here?”

    Friedman: “Really, honestly, I think it starts and ends with (Connor) Hellebuyck. I shouldn’t say ends with Hellebuyck. I think it starts with Hellebuyck because I think he’s the one you’re probably going to get the most return for.

    As you and I have talked about, there’s a really interesting goalie market out there. I think there’s teams looking. And so, I think people are kind of talking about who’s the goalie we want to go after and what’s that going to look like. So, I think a lot of this starts with Hellebuyck.

    I think Winnipeg’s big challenge with (Pierre-Luc) Dubois is going to be, can you convince other teams out there, that there’s a market for him beyond Montreal? I don’t think it’s only Montreal for Dubois but I think we all believe it is his vast preference is to end up there.

    So if you’re Montreal and you think that’s the case, you’re not paying a ransom for him. I think the most interesting thing there is, I think there’s teams out there looking at this like, we’ve got one more year of a really tight cap. If we’re a good team and if we think he can help us for a year, let’s go for it.

    NHL Rumors: Carter Hart – Flyers, Sharks and Canadiens

    Like I know last year, there were teams that looked at Dubois and said, ‘Hey, if we only get him for two years, we’ll take it.’

    But what’s that trade look like? I think that’s one of the biggest questions. “
    As Sabres fans, many of us are keeping one eye on this situation. I think we all have this UPL-plus for Hellebuyck fanatasy.

    AND... he has said he only wants Montreal, which was stupid for him to do. Now Montreal will definitely not over-commit for him and this will scare off other teams. That GM has some work to do. Mark Scheifele is an ******* and locker room cancer (just ask Patrick Laine), Dubois is a shiny prima donna (as is Scheifele). They should jettison those two, IMO. But they have some good players to rebuild around: Morrissey, Connor, Ehlers... Niederreiter will turn out to be a solid addition. Not sure about Wheeler. I seem to remember Laine complaining about Scheifele & Wheeler in the locker room.

    I thought a new team signed him then immediately traded him… thus the three team deal.

    That is very true but being a 6'3" C is always going to be in demand. Rumors are he wants to be in Montreal.

    No the 3rd team was to retain salary. Traded to that team, traded out with retained salary to the end team.
