Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello isn't willing to do a sign-and-trade with John Tavares, according to Pierre LeBrun.

The Islanders are the only team that can offer Tavares an eight-year deal, so a sign-and-trade would allow Tavares to sign a max deal and play for another team. Lamoriello has no interest in doing that, which means Tavares will either re-sign with the Islanders or head to market. The only other way he could get an eight-year deal from another team is if the Islanders trade his negotiating rights before July 1st.

Miro Aaltonen will head back to the KHL for the 2018-19 campaign.

Aaltonen attempted to make the shift to North American hockey in 2017-18, but it didn't work out as hoped. He was solid in the AHL with 20 goals and 43 points in 64 games, but the 25-year-old didn't end up playing at all with the Maple Leafs.

The Dallas Stars plan on signing Valeri Nichushkin to a two-year contract, per Stars GM Jim Nill.

Dallas can't do so until July 1 though. Nichushkin was taken by Dallas with the 10th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He recorded 29 points in 79 contests in 2015-16, but spent the last two seasons in the KHL. In 2017-18, he had 16 goals and 27 points in 50 games.

Flames GM Brad Treliving dismissed reports about his team's interest in trading Dougie Hamilton.

Treliving laughed at the inquiry and said, "No. There's lots of stuff that's reported at this time. We don't comment on that stuff. When I hear about that stuff, it usually comes out late at night when people have been into the red wine..." Hamilton is coming off a strong season where he scored 17 goals and 44 points in 82 games. He's just 25-years-old and comes with a reasonable $5.75 million cap hit, so he would command a good amount if the Flames did shop him, but his value is also reason why they likely want to keep him.

The Los Angeles Kings are reportedly believed to be among the teams that have submitted a contract offer to Ilya Kovalchuk.

Kovalchuk can't sign any contract until July 1 though. In addition to Los Angeles, it's believed that Boston, Vegas, and San Jose are also pursuing his services. Previous reports also linked the Blues and Red Wings to Kovalchuk, so perhaps they also still have a chance.

The Buffalo Sabres are reportedly not expected to present Robin Lehner with a qualifying offer.

If that happens then Lehner will become an unrestricted free agent. TSN's Bob McKenzie added that Buffalo is likely to look elsewhere for a goalie to partner with Linus Ullmark. Lehner's qualifying offer would have been $4 million. He struggled last season with a 3.01 GAA and .908 save percentage in 53 games.

The NHL has unveiled that the 2018-19 campaign will run from Oct. 3 through April 6.

There are four games set for the season opener with the defending champion Washington Capitals hosting the Boston Bruins being the centerpiece game of the night. Speaking of the Capitals, their first rematch against Vegas will take place on Oct. 10 in Washington. Other key events include the Thanksgiving game on Nov. 23 with Philadelphia hosting the New York Rangers and the 2018 Winter Classic between Chicago and Boston at Notre Dame Stadium. The All-Star Break is set for Jan. 24-27 and will once again feature a tournament between the four divisions. Feb. 9 will be Hockey Day in Canada, which will consist of all seven Canadian teams playing, and that will be followed by Hockey Day in America on Feb. 17. Finally, there will be an outdoor game between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field on Feb. 23.

The salary cap in 2018-19 will be $79.5 million.

That firms up NHL commissioner Gary Bettman's previous estimate of $79.5 million to $80 million. While we obviously got the low end of that range, it does represent a healthy $4.5 million jump from the 2017-18 ceiling. Currently every team is below the projected ceiling with the team closest to it being the Florida Panthers, which sit at $71,155,832 for 2018-19 per CapFriendly.com after the Mike Hoffman trade. There are also eight teams that are currently more than $20 million below the ceiling. There are still plenty of RFAs that need to be signed and other financial considerations that teams will be making, but it still looks like there will be plenty of money for general managers to throw around once the UFA period starts on July 1.
