NHL Rumors: Hamilton, Kraken, Avalanche, Flyers, Panthers, Devils, Oilers, Blues and More

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: Contract talks between the Carolina Hurricanes and Dougie Hamilton broke off during the season and he now has permission to talk to other teams. There will be lots of interest. Would have thought the Philadelphia Flyers would be targeting Hamilton but they may be looking elsewhere. The Seattle Kraken makes sense. The Kraken have a window before the expansion draft where they can talk to pending free agents. Rod Brind’Amour and the Carolina Hurricanes have a ver

Let the Stars Shine

Even when NHL officials actually take the whistles out of their pockets, they make the wrong call far too often. Such was the case last night with the embarrassing goaltender interference penalty called against Brayden Point of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 4-2 win over the New York Islanders. As brutal as that call was, the real problem the NHL has to get sorted out, and fast, is that too many referees are managing games rather than calling rulebook infractions that are there for all to see, esp

I can’t say for sure, but it’s entirely possible. Next season could potentially be such a season for the Oilers.

Depth defender Slater Koekkoek may be in tough to land another contract with Edmonton Oilers

2021 Edmonton Oilers in review Slater Koekkoek Ken Holland’s early track record as Edmonton Oilers’ GM is to add as many mid-level, mid-career “pros” as he can fit on his roster. One avenue of recruitment has been to search for bargains in the discard pile of Restricted Free Agents who were not issued a qualifying offer by their old teams.

Oilers Will Have to Trade Some Young D-men

The Edmonton Oilers’ pipeline of young defencemen looks very promising. They have drafted well to stock pile some solid prospects and current NHL defenders. Ethan Bear and Caleb Jones (2015 draft), Marcus Niemelainen and Vincent Desharnais (2016), Dmitri Samorukov and Phil Kemp (2017), Evan Bouchard and Michael Kesselring (2018) and Philip Broberg (2019). Not all nine will play in the NHL, but three already have and I could see at least another three playing, possibly more. But they won’t a
