There's plenty of interest in potential free agent Kyle Okposo.

Okposo will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. Now that all teams are allowed to talk to free agents, there's reportedly many inquiring about Okposo. According to Arthur Staple, Winnipeg, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Detroit, Buffalo and Florida are all reportedly interested in his services. The 28-year-old had 22 goals and 64 points in 79 games in 2015-16. He'll command a long term deal and a lot of money.

Alex Burrows isn't expected to be bought out by the Vancouver Canucks.

Burrows' offensive production has dried up considerably in the last few seasons. The 35-year-old's point totals have decreased in three of the last four seasons. He had nine goals and 22 points in 79 games. Burrows has one year remaining on his contract at $4.5 million.

The Vancouver Canucks are planning to buy out forward Chris Higgins, according to TSN 1040's Matt Sekeres.

The 33-year-old has really slowed down over the last few seasons and it showed in 2015-16. Higgins finished the year with three goals and four points in 33 games. Higgins cleared waivers in January and was assigned to AHL Utica. He'll likely have to accept a two-way deal or a professional tryout later on in the summer if he wants a chance to play in the NHL next season.

The Boston Bruins will need Jimmy Hayes to step up in 2016-17.

The big forward struggled with consistency in 2015-16. He finished the year with no points in his last 16 games and had one point in 15 games during a stretch in late-November to early-December. "I think Jimmy had a pretty start to the year, but he really tailed off when the team needed him most," said GM Don Sweeney. "He should take some responsibility for that. We had a pretty frank discussion about that to challenge him to take his game to another level, and be able to help out a younger player."

The St. Louis Blues reportedly asked the Detroit Red Wings for Dylan Larkin in a trade involving Kevin Shattenkirk.

That's a steep price for Detroit to pay for any player, especially one who's contract expires at the end of next season. Shattenkirk has been in high demand this off-season, but the Blues might want to drop their asking price if they hope to find a trading partner. It's safe to assume that Larkin won't be going anywhere this off-season or any time soon. The 19-year-old had 23 goals and 45 points in 80 games last season.

Alexander Radulov has reportedly signed a contract with KHL Salavat.

Radulov made it clear that he was hoping to come back to the NHL in 2016-17, but it appears as though his asking price was just too high. According to another report earlier this month, the 29-year-old was looking for a two-year contract worth $15 million to return to the NHL. No team was willing to bring him into the fold at that price. Radulov last played in the NHL with Nashville during the 2011-2012 season. Salavat's general manager has since denied the report.

Panthers GM Tom Rowe expects Mark Pysyk to develop into a top-four defenseman in the near future.

The Panthers acquired Pysyk in a trade that saw them ship Dmitry Kulikov to Buffalo. "It’s not an easy decision when you’re trading a guy like ‘Kuli’ away," Rowe said. "Part of it was cap management going into next year. And then we really wanted to get a right-shot defenseman, and Mark Pysyk was a guy we targeted a long time ago. We watched him quite a bit through the last couple of seasons. We just felt that we picked up [Keith] Yandle on the left side with a left shot, so we wanted to find a guy who had potential to be a top-four ‘D.’ He might not be a top-four ‘D’ this year, but we think he can be in a couple years. And the fact that he’s a right shot, he’s a very composed player, very smart player, we thought he was a real good fit for the guys we have on the back end." The 24-year-old was a first round draft pick back in 2010. He had one goal and 11 points in 55 games last season.

Kerby Rychel realizes that he has an "unbelievable opportunity" in Toronto.

Rychel asked to be traded from Columbus almost a year ago and the Jackets were finally able to honor his request by sending him to Toronto. "This is an unbelievable opportunity for me," Rychel said of playing for the Maple Leafs. "I touched base with the team this afternoon. I’ve got a lot to prove. The window is closing and I’m going to make this a big summer of getting ready." The 21-year-old had two goals and nine points in 32 NHL games last season. He was originally selected in the first round, 19th overall, by Columbus in 2013.
