Wild have interview two GM candidates already
The Wild still plan on interviewing more candidates and there is no timetable to name their new GM.
Don Waddell was the Carolina Hurricanes president and GM last season and is without a contract.
Joey Alfieri of NBC Sports: Five candidates for the Minnesota Wild GM could include Ron Hextall, Tom Fitzgerald, Bill Zito, Mike Futa and Peter Chiarelli.
A bridge deal for Konecny makes sense
Hall: A bridge contract make sense for both the Flyers and Konecny. wonders about a three-year deal at a cap hit around $4 million range. Konecny would be 25-years old at the end of that and ready cash in on a big deal.
Destra: Agree that a three-year bridge deal in the $3 to $4 million per season range would be good for both sides.
Flyers will have eight NHL Dmen
When Provorov gets signed, the Flyers will have eight defensemen on NHL deals. They could carry eight defensemen to start the season. Samuel Morin would require waivers and they could try to slip him through right before the season starts.
Robert Hagg is also no longer waiver exempt. He would almost certainly get claimed if placed waivers. If Hagg became the odd man out, he’d be a trade candidate.
