The Stanley Cup Finals are drawing to a close, which means we’re about to enter the National Hockey League’s off-season.
It’s called the off-season, but it’s actually a season of team reshuffling.
Usually, at the beginning of the off-season, with the draft and free agents, there’s a lot of action in the field hockey world, and this year should be no exception.
One of Pierre LeBrun’s recent articles states that Connor Hellebuyck’s next contract will be with a new team.
“There should be no confusion about Hellebuyck’s interest in signing an extension in Winnipeg. That ship has sailed. His next contract will be with a new team.” – Pierre LeBrun
This means that the 30-year-old goaltender’s days are numbered in Winnipeg, and he’s likely to be traded if he’s to sign with another team anyway in a year’s time when he becomes a free agent.
There will clearly be plenty of teams interested in the services of Hellebuyck, who is still one of the NHL’s best goaltenders.

In the case of 29-year-old Laughton, the Flyers would love to keep him around to be an important veteran for the youngsters in the future, but if the right offer comes along, Daniel Brière could flinch at parting with Laughton.
The NHL would really like that, Vegas would really like that, and so it’s likely to be THE destination for the next draft.
– This is THE question.
If the top four picks in the draft go as anticipated *and* the Canadiens decide to pass on Matvei Michkov, @MAGodin and I feel the pick could come down to these two guys we met with in Buffalo this week. On Ryan Leonard and David Reinbacher: https://t.co/qSe2kZzpfl

– The rats were back in Florida.
RATS ARE BACK: Behind the 27-year-old tradition that has #flapanthers fans ‘armed’ with rats again. Fun trip down memory lane. Hear from Jovo Cop, Fitzy, Mell & learn how fans get the rats, what FLA does with them & how this all began in 1996

The real story still isn’t coming out.
Spending $50M a year on legal fees to fight for your life as a major professional sports league doesn’t seem like a heavy burden.
Also, PGA Tour could have just stopped fighting and just competed head to head. https://t.co/e9cb4o44dC
