The RFA’s are starting to sign, led by Mitch Marner in Toronto. But…$40m+ on 4 players…is it a smart move?! The Bolts are back without Brayden Point while the team attempts to move past the Playoffs Collapse last season. Jack Hughes has already impressed, with 2 goals in his first game! Bryan is uncomfortable by him though.
We’re getting closer to Training Camp for the Tampa Bay Lightning, Eugene Helfrick covers the Bolts for TheHockeyWriters.com and helps us figure out what to expect from Nikita Kucherov next season, and what Brayden Point’s contract should really be worth. Along those lines, we talk about the still unsigned RFA’s and which ones should expect the biggest payday.
The Solar Bears unveiled their new uniform set, and a classic color has been removed from the color set. Why? Listen for some insight!
Have we talked about the RFA’s in the NHL all summer long? Yes, too much, probably.
However, the fact remains: Brayden Point, Mitch Marner, Patrik Laine and Mikko Rantanen are only a few of several without contract, just weeks out of Training Camp. Are these guys worth the money they want? Where does the skill tier break up amongst these players?
Another core player is returning to the Solar Bears this season, and (we’ll attempt) the fan-favorite “Nick’s Rink Report”.
