Let's look at five of the teams that have had the quietest off-season so far, and try to figure out if the conservative approach will end up being the right move. More
Niklas Kronwall was a surprising inclusion to Sweden’s World Cup roster given the amount of young, talented Swedish defensemen, but the veteran rearguard won’t be participating after all. Kronwall is out with an injury and will be replaced by Anaheim Ducks blueliner Hampus Lindholm.
With the start of NHL training camps fast approaching, Red Wings GM Ken Holland still hasn't found a suitable defenseman upgrade.
The Dallas Stars have been built around their offensive ability, and they added to their firepower by signing Jiri Hudler to a one-year, $2-million deal. Hudler, 32, is coming off of a 16-goal, 46-point season and is two seasons removed from a 31-goal campaign.
SKA St. Petersburg weren’t messing around this off-season. First they signed Pavel Datsyuk and they’ve followed that up with arguably the most incredible hype video ever. Flames? Check. Gunfire? Check. Fan eating what appears to be raw meat? Check.
Senators GM Pierre Dorion was confident in signing Cody Ceci before the end of August, and Dorion got it done. Ottawa signed Ceci to a two-year deal that keeps the Senators out of a tough cap situation and gives him room to prove he’s worth a long-term contract.
Dylan Strome doesn't want to play major junior anymore, but he's not AHL eligible. That puts big pressure on him to make the Coyotes.
Alexander Radulov hasn’t skated in an NHL contest in four years, but the KHL star is back as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. Radulov said he wants to prove to everyone he can still play in the NHL and, most of all, win a Stanley Cup.
Blackhawks assistant coach Kevin Dineen and Sharks assistant coach Bob Bougher are reportedly two of the frontrunners for the Avalanche’s vacant coaching position. Both have ties to Denver and Colorado assistant GM Chris McFarland.
