Devils sign Zacha to 3-year, $6.75M contract

Devils sign Zacha to 3-year, $6.75M contract The New Jersey Devils have re-signed restricted free-agent forward Pavel Zacha to a three-year deal worth $6.75-million, the team announced on Tuesday. The contract carries an average annual value of $2.25 million, and Zacha will remain a restricted free agent once it expires after the 2021-22 season. "We are happy to have finalized this three-year agreement as Pavel is an important part of our team," said general manager Ray Shero. "He has established himself as someone who can play in any situation and we are looking forward to his continued growth as a player.

While contract talks are ongoing with several prominent restricted free agents, it appears that talks will also soon be occurring with arguably the top pending unrestricted free agent forward. Devils GM Ray Shero told’s Mike Morreale that he plans to sit down with winger Taylor Hall at some point during training camp to discuss a potential contract extension. While he’s coming off a season that saw him play just 33 games due to a knee injury, he’s only a year removed from winning the Hart Trophy. Between that and the fact that a new market record was recently set for a winger when Artemi Panarin signed for an average annual value just over $11.64 million with the Rangers back in July. Hall could certainly find himself in that range if he was to make it to the open market next summer, which would represent a significant jump on his current $6 million cap hit.

Krug, Bruins yet to begin extension talks

Krug, Bruins yet to begin extension talks The Boston Bruins and defenseman Torey Krug, who's set to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason, haven't begun talks on a potential contract extension, the blue-liner told Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press. Krug became eligible to ink an extension on July 1, but the Bruins need to address the contracts of fellow defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo. Both youngsters are currently restricted free agents and training camp is set to open next week. The lack of extension negotiations doesn't mean Krug and the Bruins won't eventually find common ground.

New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero's view of the team's upcoming contract talks with Taylor Hall haven't changed since the end of the Hall said after the season he was going to take his time to discuss his future with his family and close friends, and he maintained the same stance in

Elsewhere in the East:

  • Veteran winger Jason Pominvillewon’t be surfacing at training camp with Montreal, but the door hasn’t completely closed on a return to Buffalo. GM Jason Botterill told reporters, including Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News (Twitter link) that they continue to have discussions with the 36-year-old although he also indicated they don’t intend to bring anyone into camp on a tryout deal. Pominville has indicated that his preference is to play for a team that wouldn’t require uprooting his family, which is why Buffalo and Montreal have been mentioned as the likeliest spots for him to play. However, if the Sabres don’t have a spot for him, he’ll either have to reassess his options or potentially call it a career.
  • Talks between the Lightning and restricted free agent center Brayden Point to not appear to be progressing well. Joe Smith of The Athletic reports (Twitter link) that a deal between the two sides is still not close. Point is coming off of a career year that saw him pick up 92 points in 79 games. However, Tampa Bay has a well-defined salary structure with Nikita Kucherov and Andrei Vasilevskiy (starting next year) at $9.5 million. That would seemingly represent the ceiling for his earning potential on his contract. While they don’t quite have that much cap space with which to work, the Lightning could still conceivably approach the $8 million mark without having to do much in the way of cap-related roster changes.

NHL point totals: 3 overvalued teams to fade.
It's all about value. After bringing you four undervalued teams to consider last week, let's visit the other end of the spectrum by identifying three clubs that sportsbooks are overvaluing based on headline-catching offseasons: Toronto Maple Leafs under 102.5 A lot of people - led by the Kyle Dubas Stans - are high on the Maple Leafs this season after an active summer. However, it's time to pump the brakes. After finishing with 100 points last season, did the roster actually improve this offseason? Let's start by addressing the elephant in the room: Mitch Marner.
