It's unlikely that any of the top remaining restricted free agents sign soon but things should heat up in September. A look at recent updates on the top RFAs.
Taylor Hall could look for Artemi Panarin money. RFAs should fall in line after Mitch Marner re-signs. The Calgary Flames will look at the market for a defenseman.
Patrick Maroon still getting interest. No update on Ivan Barbashev. NY Rangers and Brendan Lemieux not close on a deal. Seattle team name by early 2020.
Avs prefer signing Mikko Rantanen long-term but okay if a short-term deal. It doesn't really make sense for the Boston Bruins to trade David Krejci.
Justin Williams is still undecided. The Calgary Flames to look at the trade market for a defenseman. Anthony Mantha could get a nice raise. Mike Green could be dealt at the trade deadline.
Sergei Bobrovsky is the perfect comparable for Braden Holtby. Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion on Colin White, Thomas Chabot, and their payroll.
