St. Louis Blues' keys heading into '20 offseason

  St. Louis Blues' keys heading into '20 offseason There are still a few things that GM Doug Armstrong needs to accomplish. Clear out contracts © Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports St. Louis was a team that was hit hard by the pandemic, causing the salary cap to flatten out. All of a sudden, instead of either trying to add to their roster or at least keep it intact, the Blues have already had to move out one veteran on the cheap after sending Jake Allen to Montreal for a relatively low return of a third-round pick.

Ten Notable Non - Tenders . October 7, 2020 at 8:56 pm CDT | by Brian La Rose 1 Comment. Lost in the shuffle on the marathon second day of the This was one of the more surprising non - tenders of the group. Although Kahun has just two years of NHL experience, he’s arbitration-eligible since he’s 25.

Non - tendered players immediately become free agents who can sign with another team for any amount. Other borderline candidates may be presented with an offer that is notably lower than their projected salary and could accept the “take it or leave it” ultimatum rather than being non - tendered .

Lost in the shuffle on the marathon second day of the draft is that Wednesday also represented the deadline for qualifying offers to be tendered. The flattening of the salary cap increased the concerns about salary arbitration, which has certainly affected the quality of players who are now set to hit the open market on Friday. As these players will not be a part of our annual Top-50 UFA Rankings, here’s a rundown of 10 notables to keep tabs on over the coming days, listed in alphabetical order.

Back at the trade deadline, the Oilers dealt a pair of second-round picks and Sam Gagner to secure the speedster, one with which GM Ken Holland had plenty of familiarity from his own days with Detroit. While the winger was having a tough season, he’s only a year removed from a 30-goal campaign. In a normal salary-cap world, his $3 million qualifier would have been tough to swallow but still would have happened. Instead, he hits the open market with Edmonton not getting much return for those two fairly high picks while becoming an intriguing bounce-back target for some teams. He won’t get paid like a 30-goal scorer but as a third-liner with upside, he’ll land one of the bigger contracts out of this group of players if not the biggest.

Steven Stamkos returns to Lightning lineup for Game 3 of Stanley Cup Final

  Steven Stamkos returns to Lightning lineup for Game 3 of Stanley Cup Final After 211 days, Steven Stamkos is back. The Tampa Bay Lightning captain is officially in the lineup for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night.Stamkos makes his 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs debut nearly two months after the postseason began, a feat made possible only by his team’s ability to reach the Cup Final. Stamkos suffered a core injury in late February that required surgery. While he was initially given a timeline of six-to-eight weeks, core surgery rehab often exceeds expectations. Yet, many still hoped that Stamkos would be ready for the beginning of the postseason.

So I'm going to use the OHL League as the template, and replace those teams with one Eastern Conference and one Western Conference Season to So if I were to create teams, and pull players from NHL teams, I'd have duplicated players. And that's awkward and not realistic enough for me!

Matt Benning (Edmonton)

There was a time that the Oilers hoped that Benning could step into a role on their second pairing, but it didn’t come to fruition. However, he has been a serviceable third-pairing player over the past few years, but a cap-strapped Oilers team couldn’t justify qualifying him at $1.95 million. Considering that he’s a right-handed shot in a market that doesn’t have a lot of them, he should have interest from a few teams.

Nick Cousins (Vegas)

On the surface, a $1 million qualifying offer to a player who had 25 points in 65 games and got into 17 postseason contests doesn’t seem too pricey. But this is a case where the potential for a higher award through arbitration is a risk that Vegas didn’t want to take with Cousins. It’s the second straight year that the 27-year-old was non-tendered for this reason after Arizona did the same thing a year ago. A versatile depth player, he should be able to land somewhere for around the same contract as he played on this past season.

Anthony Duclair (Ottawa)

Despite finding an opportunity to play a bigger role than he had at any other point in his career, it seems as if Duclair may have overplayed his hand in contract talks. After scoring 23 goals this season, he opted to represent himself in contract negotiations against the recommendation of GM Pierre Dorion, who indicated that a sizable raise was offered before getting to this point. Still just 25, Duclair becomes a very interesting addition to the open market, but having bounced around the league already (he has played for five different teams in six NHL seasons), it’s hard to tell how strong his market may be.

Vinnie Hinostroza (Arizona)

A year ago, it looked like the 26-year-old was set to be a useful part of Arizona’s long-term plans. He was coming off of a career-best 16-23-39 stat line and was pushing for a spot in their top six. Things went sideways this season, however, as he potted just five goals in 68 games, which made a $1.5 million qualifier untenable. Hinostroza could fit on a third line for some teams and should have a fair bit of interest.

Dominik Kahun (Buffalo)

What does the future hold for longtime Bruins defenseman Torey Krug?

  What does the future hold for longtime Bruins defenseman Torey Krug? The 29-year-old defenseman is one of the top free agents set to hit the open market on Oct. 9, perhaps even second behind Alex Pietrangelo among defenders. There are very few players who can match his offensive output, which totaled 49 points in 61 games this season with the Bruins. In fact, over the last four seasons, Krug trails only Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson, Victor Hedman, John Carlson and Roman Josi in scoring among defensemen, five players who are consistently in the Norris Trophy race. He’s well ahead of Pietrangelo in that category, though the rest of his game is not nearly as polished.

This was one of the more surprising non-tenders of the group. Although Kahun has just two years of NHL experience, he’s arbitration-eligible since he’s 25. He followed up a 37-point rookie campaign with 31 points this pandemic-shortened season (including four in six games with Buffalo after being acquired in a deadline day deal from Pittsburgh) while he also missed time with a concussion and a knee injury. With his point per game average, he played at a 45-point full-season pace. Buffalo GM Kevyn Adams has indicated the Sabres are interested in retaining the winger but if he makes it to the open market, he should be one of the most sought-after players from this list.

Mark Jankowski (Calgary)

While Jankowski had shown progress in his development over his first two full NHL seasons, things went off the rails in 2019-20. Jankowski scored just five times in 56 games, and while he wouldn’t have been able to get much more than his $1.75 million qualifier in arbitration, that was still too high of a price tag for Calgary’s liking. Still just 26, Jankowski now heads to an open market that isn’t exactly loaded in available centers so while a pay cut is likely, he should have no issues finding a new team.

Dominik Simon (Pittsburgh)

A natural center, Simon has spent most of his time with Pittsburgh on the wing, playing on all four lines along the way. While not a gifted point producer, he has surpassed 20 points in each of the last two seasons while posting above-average possession numbers. With Simon owed a qualifier that is less than $800,000, the fear of arbitration sealed his fate on a cap-strapped Penguins squad.

Troy Stecher (Vancouver)

In 2018-19, Stecher looked to be on the verge of securing a spot in Vancouver’s top four after averaging nearly 20 minutes a night and chipping in with 23 points. But the return of a healthy Chris Tanev and the addition of Tyler Myers helped push the 26-year-old onto the third pairing and a much lower ATOI than usual. A $2.325 million qualifier is a bit high for someone in that role, but there should be a few teams that see him as a potential fourth or fifth option, which makes him a notable addition to the UFA market.

Lucas Wallmark (Florida)

One of the notable parts of the Vincent Trocheck deal, Wallmark was coming off of a league-minimum salary, which means this non-tender was solely arbitration related. The 25-year-old has only two full NHL seasons under his belt, putting up 25 and 23 points in each while posting a faceoff percentage that’s a bit above the 50% mark each time. There is still some upside with Wallmark, and with a weak market down the middle, he’ll have no trouble generating interest.

While these players (among the others who were non-tendered) can become unrestricted free agents on Friday, some teams will still be negotiating with their players to try to get them at a lower salary than either their qualifying offer or their expected arbitration salary. Usually, a handful wind up re-signing, so at least for some of these players, their fates may not be completely sealed yet.
