  • The NHL has announced the salary cap is expected to be $87.7 million next season, which represents a year-to-year increase of $4.2 million. It puts the Habs in a very interesting situation. Several contracts will come off the books, and they don’t need to sign any marquee players to big contracts. All things considered, the Habs will have plenty of options due to their salary cap maneuverability next season. [Montreal Canadiens Projected Salary Cap Outlook For 2024-25]

  • The maddening, gray-hair-inducing inconsistency of the Pittsburgh Penguins has many answers and no answers all at once. There aren’t enough fingers to point out all of the blame.

It’s consistent inconsistency.[Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • The Detroit Red Wings gave Patrick Kane the day off on Wednesday. That won’t be the case on Thursday. Kane, the former Hart, Art Ross, Calder and Conn Smythe Trophy winner will be making his much-awaited Detroit debut as the Red Wings are playing host to the San Jose Sharks. [Detroit Red Wings]
  • Should the Boston Bruins consider what it would cost to acquire Minnesota Wild winger Pat Maroon? On more than one occasion during their recent three-game skid, Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery openly pleaded for his team to be more physical and tougher to play against. [Boston Bruins]
