It’s expected that the team will protect John Carlson and Dmitry Orlov on the back-end, but after that, the decision to protect Nick Jensen, Justin Schultz or Brenden Dillon could be related to, simply, play on the ice, or even salary. But either way, the Capitals will have the ability to supplement that talent with the depth they’ve got.

Suter would not solve all of the team's problems. In fact, signing him would still give the team eight defensemen which is a luxury they cannot afford. Normally in those situations, the prospect pulls the short straw, but Fehervary already spent last season in Hershey after the addition of the 44-year-old Zdeno Chara.Baltimore Ravens for NHL Face Masks

In return the Blackhawks will reportedly receive defenseman Caleb Jones and a conditional 2022 third-round draft pick. That draft pick will become a second-round pick if the Oilers win three playoff series and Keith is one of the Oilers’ top-four defensemen in terms of ice time during those rounds.

The Blackhawks didn't solely trade for Caleb just to strengthen their potential pitch for Seth. It certainly helps, but the organization feels the 24-year-old defenseman can be a nice depth piece moving forward.Anaheim Ducks for NHL Face Masks

For the Oilers to have acquired a player at this age, with this decline, without any semblance of cap relief from a team with limited options to remove that contract from their own cap, is frankly negligent.New York Jets for NHL Face Masks

"In moving Nolan, I know everybody will interpret it the way they want to interpret it, but for us, we moved two good young players today — that was the price to doing business to acquire a quality two-way defenseman that we feel we really needed to take a step forward as an organization. And frankly, we feel a guy like Ryan will also aid in the development of some of our young players that we have here, too. We want to win more games and we want our young players to be put in the best position to succeed."
Paul is trying to bounce back from a rough Game 4 when he finished with 10 points, seven assists and five costly turnovers, including a crucial one in the final minute that led to a 109-103 loss.

The basketball world, on the other hand, has done little moving on in the days since Antetokounmpo's rejection with 74 seconds to go in Game 4, preserving Milwaukee's two-point lead at the time and helping the Bucks even the series at two games apiece as it shifts back here for Game 5 on Saturday night.

What perhaps was a surprise in Milwaukee’s 123-119 victory against Phoenix on Saturday was Holiday’s offensive production.

Lee was called up to the big leagues earlier this season out of necessity before he was ready. Since moving back down to Triple-A, he has shown great pitch recognition skills with an on-base percentage of .444. He has above average raw power that hasn’t translated into games yet and above average speed on the base paths. Defensively, he can play all three outfield spots with a plus arm. If he can make more consistent contact he is a starting outfielder, and if he cannot improve that he should be a valuable fourth outfielder.San Diego Padres Face Masks

The Tigers will be turning their offense over to sophomore star quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei. At 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Uiagalelei is more physically imposing than many other quarterbacks out there and he certainly was difficult for opposing teams to stop as a freshman.Cincinnati Reds Face Masks

Allan unfortunately underwent Tommy John surgery this season and there is a chance that he misses most of 2022 as well. But when he is healthy, this is a very polished young arm with No. 2 type of starter upside. In 2023 he will be throwing his first full professional season at just 21 years old.

But Williams knew from watching the film that the Suns' problems Sunday started way before any fouls.

Buffalo could use Skinner’s spot to protect a young forward such as Rasmus Asplund, or a defenseman such as Henri Jokiharju or Will Borgen, who would otherwise be exposed.

Baty has been the real deal at the plate, consistently barreling up balls to all fields. He has also shown advanced pitch recognition skills and tapped into his power over the last month.

Ideally, yeah, I would like to hear if there's something that he's feeling that’s different than he's felt in the past and he thinks it could be a concern."
