Vegas Golden Knights

In today's NHL rumor rundown there is news that Ottawa Senators prospect Tim Stutzle is going to be undergoing surgery. How long will he be out? The Montreal Canadiens made a couple very different signings, one via trade and one via free agency. What are insiders saying about the team and the two deals? Taylor Hall signed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Sabres, but is that where he'll stay? Finally, is the Vegas Golden Knights business model broken? Tim Stutzle to Undergo Surgery Unfortunately for the Ottawa Senators, the development of third-overall pick Tim Stutzle will have to hit pause as the prospect is set to undergo surgery. He suffered an arm injury while training with his German club, the Mannheim Eagles. Stutzle was hurt Monday and will have the procedure Wednesday. The 18-year-old is expected to be out six-to-eight weeks which is good news in that he won't be out long-term, but I'm sure a bit disappointing for the Senators. Canadiens Decisions During Free...

The Buffalo Sabres have landed one of the top free agents, signing Taylor Hall to a short-term deal at one-year for $8 million. Hall is coming off the final year of a seven-year deal he signed back in 2012, earning $6 million a year. Hall Wanted to Make Winning a Priority Hall was one of the marquee names heading to free agency. Before the free agent period opened up, he was keen on making winning a priority and that money wasn't at the forefront given the current cap situation many teams are facing. Hall has seen quite a bit of disappointment in his career. Despite recording 328 points in 381 games with the Edmonton Oilers, Hall failed to make the playoffs. After being traded to the New Jersey Devils for Adam Larsson in 2016, he went on to win the Hart Trophy in his second season with the Devils after an impressive 93-point season in 2017-18. He would also make the playoffs for the first time in his career...

Sabres History

Oct. 10 has provided an incredible number of firsts in National Hockey League history. There have been first games played by new franchises, NHL debuts by some of the all-time greats, first goals and first points. There was also a memorable ending, as the longest consecutive games-played streak saw its final game. A Huge Date for Oilers, Gretzky The Edmonton Oilers were one of four teams, along with the Hartford Whalers, Quebec Nordiques and Winnipeg Jets, from the defunct World Hockey Association (WHA) to join the NHL in 1979. They made their league debut, on Oct. 10, 1979, at the Chicago Blackhawks and they brought an exciting young player named Wayne Gretzky with them. The Great One made his NHL debut on this date in 1979.

Gretzky picked up an assist on the play for the first of his 2,857 points of his...

Sabres Prospects

Buffalo Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams had a successful second day at the 2020 NHL Draft, executing a clever trade with the San Jose Sharks and drafting four high-quality prospects. Throughout the course of an eight-hour day, the Sabres welcomed their newest members to the organization; J-J Peterka, Matteo Costantini, Albert Lyckasen, and Jakub Konecny. Adams is confident in the players he and his scouting staff selected and believes that each of their 2020 draftees will play a key role in the team's future.

Martin would likely have played at least five more years... October 16th, 2017
