Who can meet the Canadiens’ demands in a Jeff Petry trade?

The conditions Canadians general manager Kent Hughes has not moved one inch from what he originally said about trading Jeff Petry. Any deal would have to make sense for Petry, but also for the Canadiens.

That the Canadiens would have to come out of the improved trade, either now or in the future.

Now that free agency has opened, a bunch of teams spent a bunch of money on players and the already small market for Petry might have gotten even smaller, Hughes has not changed his tune.

Capitals depth chart projection

Now that the dust has settled following a hectic opening day of free agency, the Washington Capitals’ 2022-23 depth chart is starting to come into focus.

The opening night lineup is, too — assuming, of course, general manager Brian MacLellan’s renovations are complete.

With that caveat in mind, this feels like a good time to take stock of all the changes and project how the lineup might look when Alex Ovechkin and Co. take the ice Oct. 12 vs. Boston.

Why Sabers signed goalie Eric Comrie

Kevyn Adams has been clear about his plan.

The Sabers’ general manager didn’t want to do anything in free agency that would jeopardize what the team is trying to build over the long term. And when it came to the team’s need at a goaltender, Adams wasn’t going to fling himself desperately into the market at the position.

That’s why when free agency opened on Wednesday afternoon, the Sabers settled on a different kind of signing, one they’d been thinking about for months. While Jack Campbell inked a hefty deal with the Oilers and Darcy Kuemper signed for big money in Washington, the Sabers took a chance on Eric Comrie on a two-year deal worth $1.8 million per year.
