    Jun 28, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Among others, the Edmonton Oilers gave qualifying offers to Andrew Cogliano, Jeff Deslauriers and Devan Dubnyk this afternoon.

    There was some speculation that Shane O’Brien, after a tremendously up and down season with the Canucks, would become a free agent this summer.

  6. 2010 NHL Free Agency: Ray Whitney to test the market

    Jun 28, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Ray Whitney could be a interesting target once free agency starts on Friday. He’s an experienced and still skilled forward who put up 58 points last season with Carolina. While the Canes attempted to reach an agreement with Whitney and his agent this past week, it looks as though Whitney will be testing the market…

    Jun 28, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Perhaps the most surprising, and under the radar, news of this past week was when Ducks GM Bob Murray revealed that the Ducks had given forward Bobby Ryan a contract offer in the range of five-years, $20-$25 million — and that Ryan had reportedly turned that offer down. That supposedly put Ryan’s future with the…

    Today is the deadline for teams to give qualifying offers to their restricted free agents, otherwise they become unrestricted free agents on July 1. This year, we’re expected a large number of RFA’s to hit the open market this week as teams face some salary cap and roster crunches. The qualifying offers are already starting…

    Jun 28, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Some interesting developments this morning as ESPN is reporting, several times and by several different mediums, that the Philadelphia Flyers have reached out and made an offer to impending free agent goaltender Marty Turco. Supposedly the offer was for $2 million a year, a far cry from the $5.8 million he made last season and…

    Jun 27, 2010, 11:17 PM EDT

    Even though Mike Modano’s career may have ended on an especially poignant note in Minnesota, it appears that Modano may not be quite ready to hang it up for good. Modano told the Dallas Morning News that how things go this summer will dictate what his future will holds. On whether he feels he is…

  13. Red Wings hope to extend Mike Babcock's contract soon

    Jun 27, 2010, 9:31 PM EDT

  14. Brent Sopel takes Stanley Cup to Chicago's Pride Parade

    Jun 27, 2010, 8:43 PM EDT

    Generally when the Stanley Cup makes it’s annual tour around the world each summer, it’s not uncommon for it to be featured in a parade in a player’s hometown. It’s not every day that a member of a championship winning squad can do something to help reach out to a community in a different way…

  15. Chicago Blackhawks extend $1.65M qualifying offer to Andrew Ladd

    Jun 27, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Even after moving Dustin Byfuglien and Brent Sopel, the Chicago Blackhawks are still going to struggle with the salary cap. That will force some tough decisions with players like Antti Niemi and Niklas Hjalmarsson, but the team hopes to bring back at least one restricted free agent in Andrew Ladd. The Blackhawks extended a qualifying…

  16. Boston Bruins would be crazy to trade Marc Savard for Mikhail Grabovski

    Jun 27, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    The Boston Bruins would be nuts to trade Marc Savard for next to nothing (er, I mean, Mikhail Grabovski). They’re considering the idea, though, at least according to the current rumor circulating via Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star. I can see the logic of moving him for a valuable defenseman, but for Grabovski? That…

  17. The days of the Southeast division being the NHL's worst may be numbered

    Jun 27, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Let’s face the facts … the Southeast division has been a bad joke for years. Each season, the Washington Capitals seem to end any doubt about its division title winner by, what, November? Even though they’ve won two Stanley Cups fairly recently, those Carolina and Tampa Bay teams fell apart in the blink of an…

  18. Could the Penguins sign Dan Hamhuis and Sergei Gonchar?

    Jun 27, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    To be honest, when I heard the news that the Penguins traded for Dan Hamhuis’ negotiating rights, I figured that signaled the end of Sergei Gonchar’s days in Pittsburgh. Apparently that might not be the case, though, as the team hopes to sign both. Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has the story. It’s a…
