Hurricanes defensemen Sami Vatanen and Trevor van Riemsdyk are expected to test free agency when the market opens up on Friday, general manager Don Waddell told reporters, including NHL.com’s Tom Gulitti.  Waddell did indicate that Carolina is interested in retaining them, and the players could still potentially circle back once they’ve seen what other offers are out there:

"We’ve made it real clear that we’d like both guys, but we also understand that we’re under a little bit more of a scrutiny with our salary cap.  So if they go out to the market, whatever the market will bear, it might be something that if they do come back to us that we can talk about."

NFL reportedly discussing playoff bubble following coronavirus cases

  NFL reportedly discussing playoff bubble following coronavirus cases The NFL has already postponed one game and had players test positive for the coronavirus on multiple teams, which has led to talk of potentially needing a bubble plan going forward. That is still on the table, at least for the postseason. © Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports Discussions about playing games in a postseason bubble have picked up for the NFL internally, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The most viable plan would involve the two conference championship games being played in a bubble.

As things stand, the team has less than $8M in cap space with only 17 players signed. While winger Warren Foegele and blueliner Haydn Fleury aren’t going to break the bank as restricted free agents, by the time they’re signed, there won’t be enough room to keep both UFAs when you factor in spending to fill out the rest of the roster.

Vatanen is the more intriguing of the two situations.  The 29-year-old was brought in by Carolina at the trade deadline despite being injured at the time with the hopes that he’d help them down the stretch and in the playoffs.  Of course, the pandemic shut things down, and he was only able to play in seven playoff games.

While Vatanen’s offensive production has dipped in recent years compared to the 37 and 38-point seasons he put up in 2014-15 and 2015-16, respectively, he’s still an intriguing top-four option who can help run a power play.  He does, however, carry considerable injury risk, as he has yet to play more than 72 games in a single season.  With a thin UFA market, though, there still should be a large number of teams interested in him. A deal around the $4.875M AAV that he had the past four seasons could still happen even with the salary cap flattened out.

It will be held in the middle of the week for the first time since 1994.

Trevor van Riemsdyk (born July 24, 1991) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL). He won the Stanley Cup in 2015, his rookie season, with the Chicago Blackhawks.

As for Van Riemsdyk, the 29-year-old was in a limited role for most of this season, playing in just 49 games during the regular season and only two of their postseason contests.  It’s unlikely that he’ll be able to command the $2.3M AAV he played under the last two years, but if he’s willing to sign for less, it’s plausible that he could be brought back at a rate that’s more commensurate with a sixth or seventh role.

Waddell also has to be mindful of two big-ticket deals on the horizon for 2021-22 in winger Andrei Svechnikov and defenseman Dougie Hamilton.  Svechnikov is a restricted free agent next offseason, and Waddell indicated that extension talks are ongoing while allowing for the possibility of the 20-year-old’s next contract being a short-term bridge.  As for Hamilton, who is eligible for unrestricted free agency after next season, no talks have been held yet, but he’ll be in line for a significant raise on his current $5.75M AAV.  Knowing that those contracts will be coming sooner than later will certainly affect Waddell’s willingness to spend big on multiyear deals in the weeks ahead, which could very well take Vatanen off the table for them.

Fortunately for the Panthers, even if both of their UFA blueliners don’t return, they’ll still be well-positioned for next season with Hamilton anchoring a top-four that also features Jaccob Slavin, Brett Pesce, and Brady Skjei.  Veteran Jake Gardiner is in the mix as well as Fleury, so the Hurricanes will still have a strong back end without Vatanen and Van Riemsdyk in the mix.
