  • Kyle Dubas finally got his man. On Sunday, the new Pittsburgh Penguins GM snagged reigning Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson from the San Jose Sharks, in a three-team trade that also included the Montreal Canadiens and featured 12 moving pieces. Here’s how the deal came together. [San Jose Sharks]
  • Retaining early-round selections isn’t easy when a GM has to deal with short-term objectives, and even if he does, identifying teenagers who can be developed into NHL contributors can be like trying to carve steam with a chisel. Exhibit A: Nathan Legare. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • From the moment that Jake Walman and Moritz Seider were paired on the Detroit Red Wings defence last season, it was like peanut butter and jam, fish and chips, or Abbott and Costello. They clicked instantly. [Detroit Red Wings]
  • Nathan MacKinnon was obviously going to be among the top centres in the NHL, and anyone who’s not a lunatic would have him in their top 5, but where did the NHL ultimately place him? [Colorado Avalanche]
  • Philadelphia Flyers goalie prospect Ivan Fedotov is in Russia, presumably, waiting for the resolution of his contract dispute, preparing for another hockey season.

  • The Vegas Golden Knights have had no shortage of drama in the crease. A bloody sword, mounting injuries, and Robin Lehner’s snake farm — it is impossible to surprise a Golden Knights fan. [Vegas Golden Knights]
  • After going through his first-ever arbitration process and hearing, Boston Bruins Jeremy Swayman made it clear that he holds ‘no ill will’ against the Bruins after being awarded a one-year, $3.47 million contract following a July 30 arbitration hearing. [Boston Bruins]
