Moving on from past is first step in this NHL offseason

  Moving on from past is first step in this NHL offseason It's hard for Duncan Keith to say goodbye to yesterday. Pekka Rinne, too. Even more difficult for Zach Parise and Ryan Suter because it wasn't their call. Moving on from the past is an early theme of the NHL offseason. Chicago traded Keith after 16 seasons that included three Stanley Cup titles. Rinne retired following 13 full seasons goaltending in Nashville, and Minnesota announced buyouts for Parise and Suter nine seasons into their 13-year contracts. Consider it like summer cleaning before most of the jumbling for the 2021-22 season happens after the Seattle expansion draft next week.

With the expansion draft and free agency here — and a flat cap, to boot — the 2021 NHL offseason is expected to be a wheelin'-and-dealin' one.

"There’s a number of teams that — there’s just really big decisions to be made," former Lightning general manager Brian Lawton told The Associated Press' Stephen Whyno. "Now it’s fast and furious trying to figure out what they can get done."

With regard to the expansion draft, teams will be looking to get something for players they probably would lose otherwise in the draft. Then there is free agency, which begins July 28. A number of teams are cash-strapped and looking to free up space to not only re-sign their free agents but also reel in new players.

Owen Power, Luke Hughes among 10 candidates for top spot The NHL Draft will be held virtually July 23-24.There was no player that everyone had to know before the year. There was not going to be a #FallinForDahlin, #LoseForHughes, or even a #FailForNail tanking slogan. This was always going to be a draft in which there would be a year-long, thorough discussion about who deserved to become the 58th No. 1 pick in NHL Draft history.

A number of big names are rumored to be on the trade block, including the Sabres' Jack Eichel. One domino has already fallen: The Blackhawks shipped three-time Stanley Cup champion Duncan Keith to the Oilers on July 12.

EXPLAINER: How leagues investigate gambling allegations .
Allegations from his estranged wife that Evander Kane bet on hockey games, including his own, and tried to lose for profit have sparked an NHL investigation into the San Jose Sharks forward's gambling activities. Just what the league will find and how quickly is anyone's guess. If the investigation reveals Kane bet against his own team, those are uncharted waters for a league that has signed more than a half dozen partnerships with sportsbooks, data providers and other gambling-related entities since the Supreme Court cleared the way for legalized sports betting in 2018.
