Canadiens Daily: Development Camp, NHL Free Agent Rumours



NHL Free Agency

Happy NHL Free Agency Eve!

There’s plenty of NHL free agent and NHL trade rumours flying with NHL free agency set to begin at noon Wednesday.

That, Montreal Canadiens news, and more in the MHN Canadiens Daily:

Montreal Canadiens

The 2022 Montreal Canadiens development camp began Monday and the top overall pick from the 2022 NHL Draft, Juraj Slafkovsky impressed those in attendance.

In a rather surprising move, the Montreal Canadiens did not qualify forward Rem Pitlick but is there a way he could still end up signing with the Canadiens?

The Montreal Canadiens extended defenceman Corey Schueneman on Monday.

Not sure what they’re smoking that would make them think he’s come back to Russia but CSKA, a top KHL club, has provided former Montreal Canadiens defenceman Alexander Romanov with a two-year offer to return to Russia.

BOS: Looks like the Boston Bruins are going to make another run at the Stanley Cup as they are close to bringing back centers David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron.

PGH: For the firs time in his NHL career, longtime Pittsburgh Penguins centre Evgeni Malkin will test NHL Free Agency. Malkin will be 36 on July 31.

PHI: New Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Tony DeAngelo vehemently denied that he’s a racist. Most racists do.

WSH: The Washington Capitals are now without an NHL goalie on their roster as they elected not to qualify Ilya Samsonov. The Russian goalie will be a UFA when NHL Free Agency begins on Wednesday.

FLA: As NHL Free Agency is set to kick off on Wednesday, the Florida Panthers are pinched up against the salary cap.

DET: The Detroit Red Wings didn’t qualify four players.

COL: Now we know why the Colorado Avalanche wouldn’t allow Chris MacFarland to interview for open general manager jobs around the NHL this offseason. On Monday the Avalanche promoted their assistant GM to GM and Joe Sakic became the new Avalanche Director of Hockey Operations.

SJS: Could and can the San Jose Sharks move defenceman Brent Burns on the NHL trade market?
