The Devils’ Depth at Wing Hinges on Bouncebacks and Breakouts

This summer, free agency and the trade market were all about big talent on the wings.

As the free agency dust settles and the future of the 2022-23 Penguins’ roster is practically in focus, the next shift is to look towards about 12 months from now for the next go-round in the contract cycle. Summer 2022 was always such a major milestone to look forward to, with potentially franchise altering events ahead with the contract negotiations with Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang (and to a lesser but still important extent for Bryan Rust and Rickard Rakell).

Morning Skate: Onward

And frankly, for early August, that’s probably fine - things start getting busy and chaotic pretty quickly once September rolls around, so maybe we’ll just enjoy a little peace and quiet. Plus,...

Who will be the Blues’ impact player this season?

The team also lost a key forward who put up 27 goals and 30 assists at the age of 34 years old. Perron has only gotten better with age, and now he gets to be a mentor to a young Detroit Red Wings team who Steve Yzerman is turning into a playoff contender piece by piece. Clearly,...
