Patrick Maroon has interest in re-signing with the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils acquired Maroon from Edmonton on Feb. 26th. He went on to record three goals and 13 points in 17 games with the Devils, giving him 43 points in 74 games overall. "I loved it here, my family loved it here," Maroon said of his time in New Jersey. "I knew a lot of guys here and it was a really easy transition, a good fit. But it’s what they want. They know what I bring to the table and what I do. It’s up to them." He's coming off a three-year, $6 million deal and is due for a raise.

While Will Butcher had a great rookie season, one area that he needs to improve on is his shot.

Butcher's teammates have been honest about it too, with Ben Lovejoy calling it "maybe even below average." While Butcher still recorded 44 points in 2017-18 regardless, working on his shot would help him become a better power-play quarterback. "I’m definitely going to work on my shot," Butcher said. "It’s hard to score from the blue line because the boys are so good. I think I need to work on that a little bit. Or a lot of bit."

Blake Coleman felt he grew a lot in his first full season with the Devils.

"Maybe at other levels - college and the American League - you score on a few shots that you can’t score on in this league," Coleman said. "You learn that poise and you learn goalie tendencies a little bit and you start to capitalize more frequently." Coleman's work seemed to paid off as he went from scoring six goals in the first 63 games to seven goals in the final 16 contests. He added another two markers in the playoffs. At the age of 26 (27 in November), he's something of a late bloomer, but we could see him continuing to grow next season.

Laurent Brossoit is set to become a Group VI UFA this summer.

Brossoit qualifies for that as he's 25-years-old, has been at the professional level for over three years, but hasn't appeared in at least 28 career NHL games where he's logged at least 30 minutes. In other words, because Brossoit never managed to establish himself with the Oilers, at this point he's allowed to become an UFA earlier than others. It would be somewhat surprising if the Oilers re-signed Brossoit, though if they did it would be to use him in the AHL.

Al Montoya might not end up being a part of the Oilers' 2018-19 opening game roster.

We'll have to see what the summer brings of course, but it looks like Edmonton has some interesting in getting a stronger backup option to take some of the pressure off Cam Talbot. It's been reported that Edmonton might sign KHL standout Mikko Koskinen and perhaps they would entertain other options as well. If Edmonton does add a goalie over the summer, then Montoya could be relegated to serving as the team's third-string netminder and consequently start the campaign in the AHL. He comes with a $1,062,500 cap hit in 2018-19, so burying his contract wouldn't be a significant issue.

It's been reported that the Edmonton Oilers might sign Mikko Koskinen this summer.

Koskinen posted a 1.69 GAA and .931 save percentage in 31 KHL games in 2017-18. If the 29-year-old goaltender does sign with Edmonton, it will likely be to serve as Cam Talbot's backup instead of Al Montoya.

Darnell Nurse is hoping to grow offensively in 2018-19.

Nurse set career-highs in 2017-18 with six goals and 26 points in 82 games, but he believes he has significantly more to give. "I think I made strides," said Nurse. "I’m looking forward to taking another step … I want to grow my offensive side (26 points). I can take that to another level. I believe I should be a two-way threat, night-in, night-out." He's just 23-years-old, so it certainly wouldn't be surprising to see him continue to develop. We don't expect him to be an elite offensive defenseman, but perhaps he can accumulate 30-40 points next season.

One area that new head coach Bill Peters might be able to help the Calgary Flames in is their discipline.

The Hurricanes were the least penalized team in the league in three of the four seasons that Peters oversaw them. Meanwhile, the Flames took the second most penalty minutes in 2017-18 with an average of 11:07 minutes per contest. That puts a lot of pressure on the team's penalty kill and has the potential to create unfavorable momentum swings during games. Peters might be able to help the Flames crack down on that and perhaps that alone will turn some would-be losses into wins next season.
