NHL makes rulings on three trades with conditional draft picks

  NHL makes rulings on three trades with conditional draft picks For those who have been awaiting the final decision on the several prominent trades made this season, the verdicts are in.The issue in this trade was in the wording of the rather unique conditions that were put on the deal.  In the original swap, Neal had to have at least 21 goals and Lucic 10 or fewer.  Neal was at 19 when the season was shut down due to COVID-19, while Lucic was at eight, so only the second element was met.  However, by extrapolating Neal’s output over a full 82-game season, he scored at a 23-goal pace.  It appears the league used a similar interpretation with the awarding of the draft pick.

“If there’s a team that’s able to do so, I think it’s us,” said Panthers forward Mike Hoffman on the Panthers’ chances of a series comeback.

After a difficult regular season, Sergei Bobrovsky hasn’t been able to deliver a win for Florida this postseason. He struggled in the exhibition game, allowing five goals to Tampa, and has come out on the losing end in both games this series. In Games 1 and 2, the goals that really seemed to change the momentum (Anthony Beauvillier’s game-winning goal in Game 1, Ryan Pulock’s game-tying goal in Game 2) were both scored five-hole from distance.

The Isles have been stingy defensively in their first two postseasons under the direction of Barry Trotz. They’ve now played 10 playoff games with him as coach, and allowed just 22 goals.

NHL has had zero positive COVID-19 tests since teams entered the bubble .
Just one day before players return to the ice for meaningful games, there is some good news from off the ice: There have been zero positive tests for COVID-19 since teams entered the bubble cities in Edmonton and Toronto last weekend. © Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports The NHL hasn't recorded any positive COVID-19 tests within the past week. Testing has ramped up over the past few days as Dreger notes that 1,500 tests are being conducted on a daily basis.  If that number seems high, it’s not just the players for each team who are being tested, but other team officials and executives are as well.
