P.K. Subban anticipates things being different with the small market Nashville Predators compared to his time with the Montreal Canadiens.

"I think there's just less distractions," Subban said. "I think in Montreal, things can become distractions for a team, and for us, I think that here, there's going to be less distractions for sure." Getting out from under the media scrutiny that comes from playing with the Montreal Canadiens might make things easier on him. That being said, he still excelled with the Canadiens and we believe Subban could play effectively in any market.

Kris Versteeg will reportedly sign with Switzerland’s Bern in the near future.

It will be interesting if that does happen given that Versteeg is a pretty established player in the NHL. He might not have been in line for a particularly lucrative deal, but it would be surprising if it turned out that he didn't have any NHL offers on the table. He scored 15 goals and 38 points in 77 games with the Carolina Hurricanes and Los Angeles Kings in 2015-16.

Kevin Hayes' new two-year contract is reportedly worth $5.2 million.

Hayes completed his sophomore campaign with the Rangers, scoring 14 goals and 36 points in 79 games. This agreement prevented the two sides from going through an arbitration hearing, which had been scheduled for July 27. It seems like a fair bridge deal for both sides, buying them time to see what type of player Hayes develops into.

Jul 22 - 2:22 PM

Peter Holland has been placed on waivers.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are likely sending a message ahead of Holland's July 25th arbitration hearing. If he clears waivers then it will help the Leafs make the case for him to get a lesser contract during that process.
