The Bolts

@JustinG. breaks down a very convincing powerplay goal by superstar Nikita Kucherov, set up by superstar Steven Stamkos. “Kucherov does a great job of controlling the pass and flinging it into the net, but the pass was the sign of a confident player. In all honestly, that pass probably shouldn’t have been made.” [Raw Charge]

Just like the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are all in Nashville, I hope everyone reading is somewhere safe, and sound. If you are being told to evacuate, please do so!

It appears that the main training camp players will be staying with the rookie tournament roster, in Nashville, until Wednesday. Training camp is only five days away!!!

The Crunch

The Game

The Vancouver Canucks and Bo Horvat have agreed to a 6-year, $33 million contract. The contract will pay Horvat an average of $5.5 million until he is 28-years-old. Like in almost every contract that has been signed in the past couple years, Horvat’s actual salary in 2020-21 is significantly lower than every other year, the presumed lockout year.

"Since being drafted by the Canucks, I have been welcomed by fans with open arms and I'm incredibly proud and fortunate to call this city and province home. I couldn't be more excited to help this team win." - Bo Horvat

The Winnipeg Jets have officially extended GM Kevin Cheveldayoff and head coach Paul Maurice to reported 5-year contracts. Ryan Lambert of Puck Daddy questions whether this was the right move or not. “This is, however, an organization seemingly pathologically devoted to simply being ‘happy to be here.’ You have to try very, very hard to get fired.” [Puck Daddy]
