Condensed season puts more pressure on goaltending

  Condensed season puts more pressure on goaltending Even those teams with outstanding starters will be looking for legitimate backup options as we head towards the condensed 2020-21 season. It may not even end up needing the “2020” part, given the regular season is now not expected to start until January.If that’s the case and the league continues to remain steadfast on playing the full 82-game schedule, next season will be extremely difficult on starting goaltenders. Back-to-back situations will come up much more frequently, with three-in-four-nights often also becoming the norm.

Pietrangelo is reportedly visiting Las Vegas this weekend and is seriously considering a deal with the Golden The 30 year old Pietrangelo is a serious talent. To use an overused expression he ‘checks all the The Golden Knights think he could be the ‘final piece of the puzzle’ in the team’s quest for a

Alex Pietrangelo said the St. Louis Blues' decision to sign unrestricted free agent defenseman Torey Krug "caught me off guard," The Athletic reported Saturday. SportsNet tweeted a picture of Pietrangelo boarding a plane and said Pietrangelo confirmed he is going to visit the Golden Knights .

The deal could also coincide with a trade as the Golden Knights, who have already moved out Paul Stastny, are also a likely candidate to move out defenseman Nate Schmidt and his contract, which includes five more years at $5.95M AAV. It’s likely both moves could be done in tandem with the belief that the Winnipeg Jets might again be part of that package, which would include restricted free agent Jack Roslovic. Even that trade could prove to be complicated as the Jets might be forced to move out a contract in order to take on Schmidt’s contract.

Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports It’s a familiar refrain for many teams this offseason, but with Vegas being a speculative option for pending top free agent Alex Pietrangelo, the Golden Knights would need to free up some cap space first.

For the Golden Knights, bringing in Pietrangelo would finally give the franchise it’s first clear cut No. 1 defenseman. The team had tried to pry away Erik Karlsson several years ago at the trade deadline, but failed to pull that trade off. This time, the team is trying to juggle its finances to fit Pietrangelo into their salary cap, which is quite a daunting task.

Pietrangelo has been a stabilizing force the last 11 seasons with the Blues and is coming off an impressive season last year. The 30-year-old had 16 goals and 36 assists in 70 games and another six points in nine playoff games for the Blues, but is probably best known for his defensive abilities, something that could only help Vegas in their quest to win a Stanley Cup in the next couple of years. Vegas also has a major need for a right-handed blueliner as the only right-hander on the team is Zach Whitecloud.

Predators sign Brad Richardson to one-year, $1M deal .
An elite face-off man and a disruptive force in the forechecking game, Richardson is an asset as an experienced, capable two-way player.
