- John Boruk: If Hal Gill makes the Flyers, it may open the door for an Andrej Meszaros trade once he is cleared to play.
- Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune: Wild coach Mike Yoe: Charlie Coyle and Mikael Granlund will battle for the second line center spot. Matt Dumba will have a shot to make the team. Yoe said not to be surprised if you see Dany Heatley on a line with Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise at some point this season.
- Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic: Coyotes 2013 first round pick Max Domi isn’t worried about making the team. He could get into some regular season games but could be returned junior before he plays 10 games.
“We don’t see the first five, seven, nine games as trial games, throw-away games,” Maloney said.
- Mike Morreale: If Hurricanes Elias Lindholm is healthy enough, coach Kirk Muller will try him at center and right wing.
- Chris Johnston: Maple Leafs Morgan Rielly on where he fits in the depth chart: “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t know what @capgeek is.”
