Managed to make it to Vancouver late last night — 5 hours on a plane and not a single trade. Times have changed. We’ll see if that lasts through the next couple days.

Robin Lehner’s very public journey to tonight began when he told his story on our site nine months ago. Quite a ride so far.

Even at 81.5m, would still have over 20m in cap space. Still need to fill some spots, of course, but they could take on $ to add assets from panicked teams close to the ceiling.

figured prominently in the last Montreal draft, back in 2009. Never wavered on their No. 1 pick, despite what was written in the weeks before. Doubt fans will want to see them pick first overall again.

Asked Trotz about any assistants changing now that Lane Lambert is back, he said he'd be discussing that with LL. Could be Jim Hiller in and no one out or possibly an assistant reassigned. More with Trotz in here:

Hayes and Brock Nelson are pretty similar stats-wise, age, position. Makes the deal with Nelson look better.

PHI and pending UFA Kevin Hayes are closing in on a multi-year contract with an AAV of around $7M. Term expected to be at least six years, perhaps seven. Prepare to take another UFA off the board.
