When does FA start? Heard that the Red Wings are kicking the tires on Jacob Markstrom. You could do a lot worst...


Oct 9th or 7 days after the SCF ends. So if the Lightning win it in 5 (Sept 28), free agency could start before the draft (Oct 6-7), which would be just weird. But what is normal in 2020?

I'd be kinda surprised if Yzerman went big on a 30-year-old goalie. That just doesn't seem like his style.

Detroit signs Sam Gagner for 1 year for some reason.

Detroit adds Marc Staal's remaining contract and a 2nd for their troubles. Expected to buyout Staal.

Detroit should be ALL OVER the MAF move.

Acquire Demko from Van along with Eriksson/Sutter/Roussel/Beagle.

Don't care what happens with Bernier/Pickard.

Acquire the shit out of the bad 1-2 year contracts. Staal absolutely cannot be the only contract Stevey Y takes on.

Justin Abdelkader has been waived in anticipation that he will have his contract bought out.

Jimmy Howard will not receive a contract offer from Detroit before the deadline and will become a free agent.

Like I said in the Devils thread, when you're bad, the offseasons are usually winners.

Ryan, Namestnikov, Stetcher, Merrill, Greiss.

Good stuff. All those guys will help without getting in the way.

Stecher is small but dependable and works his ass off. Character guy.

Short-term, low-cost, low-risk with potential for high reward and deal for more assets at the deadline.

This was what the Wings needed, not to sign Markstrom.

Still really wanted Yzerman to get Demko while taking on a bad contract or two. Apparently he said now he's focusing on the possibility of taking on bad contracts, but I think that it would have been better getting on that ahead of the start of free agency for when teams lose their minds in bidding wars.

Jonatan Berggren is off to an excellent start. Things are looking good for the 2nd rounder after two seasons troubled by injuries after bring drafted.
