Busy calendar remains for NHL teams

Monday, 06.16.2014 / 12:48 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Just because the Stanley Cup has been awarded doesn't mean the end credits have rolled on the 2013-14 NHL season.

There are a number of big events coming in the next few weeks that will go a long way toward deciding which team is the final one standing a year from now.

The hard work started Monday when the window opened for teams to offer compliance buyouts to players. Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams were given two special buyout provisions that allow them to buy out a player's contract while not having it count toward the salary cap. And those compliance buyouts only could be used following the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons.

Kings poised to be Cup contenders for several years

Monday, 06.16.2014 / 11:00 AM / NHL Insider

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Los Angeles Kings are Stanley Cup champions for the second time in three seasons and have a collection of star players who are both signed to long-term contracts and young enough to remain at their current level for at least the next few seasons.

General manager Dean Lombardi has cultivated the closest thing the NHL has seen to a perfect roster in the salary-cap era. The Kings have built a champion through the NHL Draft and deft trades, molding the roster while relying on free agency as little as possible. There is little reason to believe the Kings won't be contenders for the Stanley Cup again in 2015 and beyond.

Finnish goalie Husso used draft snub as motivation

Monday, 06.16.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Goalie Ville Husso of HIFK in Finland considered it a pretty humbling experience when he wasn't one of the 211 players chosen at the 2013 NHL Draft.

He only dwelled on it for about a millisecond, however. He thought the best tonic was to focus on doing whatever he could to re-establish himself as a legitimate top prospect for the 2014 draft, to be held June 27-28 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

"Not being drafted gave me so much motivation; I practiced harder and gained more speed," Husso said. "I thought I played well and took some big steps."

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
