    Default Free agent goaltender Darcy Kuemper, fresh off Stanley Cup win, joins Washington Capitals

    Goaltender Darcy Kuemper, who won the Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche last month, has signed a five-year free agent contract with the Washington Capitals.

    Kuemper, 32, agreed to a $26.25 million deal that carries an average annual value of $5.25 million against the salary cap.

    Just a short while later, the Capitals found his backup, signing Charlie Lindgren to a three-year deal at an average of $1.1 million.

    There was heavy buzz about the Kuemper move at the NHL draft after the Capitals traded Vitek Vanecek to the New Jersey Devils. It increased when the Capitals walked away from restricted free agent goalie Ilya Samsonov, who subsequently signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    I'm still in disbelief over what this past NHL season ended up being. I've never personally invested so much time and energy in to watching sports in my life as I did the 2021-2022 NHL season, so much so that I have yet to watch any baseball since the NHL season ended and have barely paid attention to the Broncos. My mind was toast after game six as it relates to investing myself in to sports and apparently I still have yet to be ready for that. I suppose we'll see how I feel in the days leading up to the Broncos season opener.

    Default Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche sign Evan Rodrigues to one-year, $2M deal

    DENVER -- The Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche added more depth at forward by signing Evan Rodrigues to a one-year, $2 million deal on Monday.

    The move comes on the heels of losing Nazem Kadri in free agency to Calgary. The Avalanche are banking that Rodrigues can help fill the void.

    Rodrigues arrives in the Mile High City after a season in Pittsburgh, where he set career highs with 19 goals and 24 assists. Rodrigues was the lone Penguins player to skate in every game last season.

    "We are excited to add a two-way player with Evan's versatility to our group," Avalanche general manager Chris MacFarland said in a statement. "He is coming off his best offensive season and has shown he can play in a variety of roles and help a lineup in many ways."

    Default Nathan MacKinnon says he, Colorado Avalanche 'pretty close' on contract extension

    HENDERSON, Nev. -- Nathan MacKinnon expects to sign a contract extension with the Colorado Avalanche soon, and it could make him the highest-paid player in the NHL.

    MacKinnon wants to get something done before the season starts next month, adding he'll shelve talks if an agreement isn't reached by Oct. 12 when the reigning champions raise their Stanley Cup banner and begin their title defense.

    "We're pretty close," MacKinnon said Thursday at the NHL/NHLPA player media tour outside Las Vegas. "I'd prefer it to be done. ... It gets emotional. You feel like it's personal sometimes. I'd like to get it done just so it's not a distraction at all."

    Agent Pat Brisson said the sides are trying to get a deal done relatively soon. MacKinnon's current contract expires after this season.

    I'm ok with a slight overpay.*

    Depending on cap math and Makar.

    Makar's extension is already done and his $9M cap hit (I think...I'm not looking it up) starts this coming season. Mack's obviously wouldn't start until the '23 season. A slight overpay would be okay. If it was $11M AAV, I wouldn't be mad, but I think an overpay more than that goes against what Sakic has been doing while building this team.

    I feel ya.

    If he didn't do the Trailer Park Boys animated thing, I'd be ok with him moving on.

    However, he did it. So I can't really abide him going elsewhere.

    I think an extension will be done and he'll stay put - Trailer Park Boys and all. I'm guessing somewhere in the 6yr/$60-65M range.

    Yep, it won't be single digits. I've heard as high as 15, but there's no way. I bet his AAV is around 11 or 12. If the cap does its projected sky rocket jump in a couple years we should be fine for the future. Sakic is the true mvp of the team!
    The Plan at the moment:

    Draft: Trade a 3rd and 6th this year to a team to move up and get a 2nd next year (this will happen).

    Players I want:
    Jake Ferguson (Jake Butt) or Jelani Woods or Jeremy Ruckert or Cade Otten (owen daniels) at TE- All 4th rd or later.
    Troy Anderson LB 3rd/4th rd (yay Timmy!)
    Neil Farrell, JR DL- run stuffer- bye purcell

    Default Nathan MacKinnon signs eight-year contract extension with Avalanche

    Nathan MacKinnon is going to be in the burgundy and white for a long time.

    The Avalanche on Tuesday announced that the 27-year-old star center has signed an eight-year extension with the team that will run through the 2030-31 season.

    “Nathan is obviously one of the premier players in the NHL so a long-term extension was something we wanted to get done before the season started,” Avalanche general manager Chris MacFarland said in a news release. “He has that rare combination of speed and power with a high compete level that makes him a generational player. We are thrilled he will continue to be a member of this team and this community for many years to come.”

    MacKinnon has one year remaining on his current contract, a seven-year, $44.1 million deal that he signed in July 2016. According to The Athletic, the new deal is worth an average annual value of $12.6 million for a total of $100.8 million. That will make him the highest-paid player in the NHL.
