His salary is $10 million in the 3rd year. ($4, $7, then $10 million).

If either Svech or Dougie sign extensions during this season, expect this type of salary escalation (basically the opposite of what Aho's deal looks like).

I could see Dougie going 6 years $50 million and it looking like $6 million, $7 million, $8 million, $9 million, $10 million, $10 million

I could also see Svech being signed to that same contract that Barzel just signed.
I’m definitely pro-Dougie and I find this to be a really interesting year for him/us. Is he going to be a 6M dollar player, highly likely. Is he going to play like a 10m dollar player, that’s going to be interesting to watch. Is he a points generating machine or has he hit his high water mark? Will be interesting to see.

It looks like Kenny Albert is NBCs lead announcer, he gets Olczyk as his analyst. Forslund will work again with Brian Boucher. Pierre McGuire is 3rd string. With the Covid protocols in place, I can’t imagine that anyone will be “inside the glass”. Kendall Coyle is listed as a game analyst, but she’s a player development coach with the Blackhawks. Also note that Mike Babcock will occasionally be in studio.

The NBC release says they’re not paired commentary teams. Forslund has the 8 pm game on Wednesday with Olczyk and Boucher. Albert has the early game with McPlankton, Burke has the late game with Mleczko.

I think the Panthers are trying to corner the market on waived dmen. They just grabbed Noah Juulsen from the Habs. He was their first round pick in 2015 but has only played 44 games over 2 seasons. He must have been injured last year, he only played 13 games in the AHL.

That gives Florida 10 forwards, 9 dmen and 2 goalies on current 23 man roster. Saarela remains an unsigned RFA.

There were games last season where Florida played 10 forwards and 8 Dmen. I don't anticipate them willingly doing that again this season but the way they are setting up their roster....

What's really strange is the waiver rules state that guys picked up on waivers have to be on the regular roster, cannot see two waiver wire defensemen sticking on the same team for long, so maybe they waive Forsling quickly if they like Juulsen better...I think Juulsen has had some serious vision issues related to a past injury that has derailed his career for the most part.

A few more notable names hitting the waiver wire today...Corey Perry, our old friends Derek Ryan, Andrew Ladd and Greg McKegg, Tyler Johnson, Thomas Hickey...and Svech's older brother Evgeny Svechnikov.

If he didn't have to take an active roster spot, I'd advocate grabbing Evgeny. After all this time, I doubt he's going to re-gain his explosiveness ... but the guy had hands for days and he and Svech are tighter than tight.

Blackhawks extend coach Jeremy Colliton’s contract for 2 years, through the 2022-23 season.

There are still a handful of coaches in the last year of their contract, Brind’Amour among them. I’m not worried that he’s going somewhere else, I’d just like him and Dundon to get it done.

The Canes could always trade for Evgeny if he clears waivers and they really want him.
True, but I think he remains attractive to Detroit for the same reason that Carolina might be interested ... removing the brother connection from the equation. They'd probably want a fair amount for the guy. If you can get him for nothing, that's one thing. If it costs you a draft pick in the first three rounds, then that's another.

yes a player claimed on waivers can be traded but the team he was claimed off can get him back if they want.
That's CBA 13.20.b which basically says that the player who was claimed off of waivers effectively needs to clear waivers again in order to be traded. Every team that made a claim the first time the player was put on waivers can simply claim the player again before he can be traded. If none do, the original team can simply claim him back (and then put him on their taxi squad or in the minors).

So yes, you can sort of trade a player who you claimed off of waivers, but not before he clears all previous claims and his original team doesn't claim him back (not a very likely scenario with E. Svechnikov).
