  • The Florida Panthers and Oilers flew back to town on Sunday after the Stanley Cup Final was extended to Game 5 following Edmonton’s 8-1 win the night before. Florida coach Paul Maurice remained in an upbeat mood despite the loss, saying Sunday that even though the Panthers came to win on Saturday, they simply got beat. [Florida Panthers]
  • It seems a foregone conclusion that Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will re-up with the team soon after he is eligible at the stroke of noon on July 1. NHL players whose contracts expire after the 2024-25 season may re-sign with their team beginning on July 1, but waiting to sign or jumping at the chance is a game of chicken that may produce some unexpected winners and losers.

  • When the Avalanche signed Josh Manson to his four year, $18 million contract after winning the Stanley Cup in 2022, a no-trade clause was included. That’s typically the price you pay when you sign someone who is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent. For the first two years of the deal, Manson’s contract included a full no-trade clause.
