Blues' Schwartz moving forward with new contract

Monday, 09.29.2014 / 3:54 PM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- The last piece of the St. Louis Blues roster for the 2014-15 season stepped onto the Scottrade Center ice Monday. Now the Blues can focus on the task at hand, which is working toward winning a Stanley Cup.

Restricted free agent forward Jaden Schwartz agreed to terms Saturday on a two-year contract worth $4.7 million ($2.35 million average annual value).

Without Schwartz, who will get $2 million this season and $2.7 million in 2015-16, the Blues would have had a big void to fill after the 22-year-old had a breakout 2013-14 with 25 goals and 56 points.

Schwartz, who missed 10 days of training camp, said Monday he hopes to get caught up quickly.

Bruins sign Smith, Krug to one-year contracts

Monday, 09.29.2014 / 2:42 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- In the end, the Boston Bruins were able to keep the band together.

General manager Peter Chiarelli's goal during his negotiations with defenseman Torey Krug and forward Reilly Smith was to get the restricted free agents new contracts without being forced into a corresponding move that could weaken his team's talent or depth.

By getting Krug and Smith each to agree to a one-year, $1.4 million contract Monday, Chiarelli basically got that done. According to CapGeek.com the Bruins are about $3.6 million over the salary-cap ceiling based on their current roster, but they'll get relief of slightly more than $4 million when Marc Savard is placed on the long-term injured list. While they'll be under the $69 million salary cap by about $430,000, Chiarelli could look to make a move to get more cap room. That move won't have to be as significant, however, as if Smith and Krug pushed for more money in their new contracts.

Cu-bet on it: Team-by-team bold fantasy predictions

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

This is usually my favorite fantasy hockey story to write each preseason. This is my chance to go a little off the wall with some outrageous predictions.

I'm not here to tell you Tyler Seguin might lead the NHL in points. That's obviously a possibility considering he was fourth in the NHL last season. I'm here to say Logan Couture will lead the NHL in goals.

I know, I know, that's crazy. But that's the point of this story. These predictions might not actually happen, but I believe there is a chance they could, even if that chance is ever so slim. The point of writing this, and for you reading it, is so you can discover which players I might be high on, and those I think you should avoid having on your team.

I'm sure you'll all disagree with most of them, but have a look at my bold predictions from last season and you'll see I nailed a few. Of course I got more wrong than right, but again, these are supposed to be over-the-top predictions to emphasize how strongly I feel about that specific player.

Let's go ...

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
