Crazy night as we head into free agent frenzy. Believe it or not though, it's not the free agent market that has created the buzz tonight.

Word out of Chicago is that their talks with the Kings have broken down, leading them down another path and it sounds like Schneider may be on the way out after a disappointing Cup finals performance.

They're not the only team whose goaltending situation may be changing. Both Montreal and Detroit are apparently discussing moves involving their #1 netminders. We'll see if all these teams shopping their goalies over saturates the market.

Then in Philadelphia, I'm hearing that the Flyers may be looking to package some of their up and coming talent in an effort to land P.K. Subban. Nashville is believed to be asking for Barkov and Dumba plus picks, but it would be worth it as adding Subban to a D group that already includes Karlsson, Justin Schultz, Oleksiak and DeKeyser would give the Flyers a group on the blue line to rival any team in the league for many years to come.

This all in addition to the offers flying in for the top end UFAs available on the market. Matt Moulson is one of the most sought after forwards this year with Dany Heatley, Lee Stempniak and Teemu Selanne also receiving a lot of calls early on.

Justin Falk is one of the younger and more attractive free agents on the blue line and will be in high demand, as after him the group gets older with Andy Greene and Marc Methot are the next best options on the back end.

Between the pipes, 25 year old Jeremy Smith is in high demand as he's by far the youngest quality goaltender on the market. After him teams are looking at a group including Backstrom, Vokoun, Fasth and the returning Martin Brodeur if they're in the market for a starter.

Join us tomorrow as we take a look at the fallout to the start of free agency and try to get to the bottom of all these trade rumors.

Day two of free agency picked up where day one left off. The Coyotes start the free agent frenzy strong, signing Matt Moulson to a 6 year deal while also adding Dustin Tokarski. Montreal adds a pair of centers in Jarret Stoll and Michal Handzus while also inking RFA Yannick Weber away from the Wild. Buffalo makes a splash landing Dany Heatley while the Blues add Brodeur for what will likely be his final season. Ottawa gets in on the action, signing highly sought after UFA Carter Ashton to a one year deal.

While these were the big UFA moves, but yet again, the trade market overshadows the action.

Montreal pulled off a series of moves, sending Rask and a pick to Edmonton in exchange for uber prospect Ryan Murray. They pick up their likely replacement for Rask from the Dallas Stars as they acquire Ondrej Pavalec with Boyd Gordon, bruiser Adam McQuaid and a pick. Their biggest deal of the day though came with the Columbus Blue Jackets who have been busy the past two days, as the teams pull off a blockbuster that sees Wayne Simmonds and Drew Doughty heading to Montreal in exchange for Gabriel Landeskog, Nyquist, Fucale and other pieces.

Not to be left out, the Red Wings were active again, addressing their goaltending situation by approaching the same team that snubbed the Blackhawks. Instead of Lundqvist though, this deal saw Robin Lehner heading to Detroit with Maxim Lapierre and Zach Redmond becoming Kings.

Chicago continues to load up, acquiring Justin Abdelkader, Jeff Petry, Braydon McNabb and Ryan Johansen in a series of moves today. Those were the appetizers for the main course though as they also acquire Pekka Rinne to backstop them this season, finally finding a dance partner for their quest to upgrade between the pipes.

That's it for another crazy night in the NHL. We'll be back tomorrow with more updates and to see if the GM's can keep up this torrid pace.

We're now a few weeks into free agency and the waters have calmed a bit. The opening trade frenzy shook the hockey world like we've rarely seen before.

One of the biggest developments recently was the Ducks signing RFA goalie Jeremy Smith away from the Avalanche which ended up costing them 1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks in the 2015 draft. This wasn't the only compensation the Avalanche would pick up as they also received the same picks from Columbus when they chose not to match the offer the Jackets extended to Justin Falk. So make that 9 picks for the Avalanche in the first 3 rounds of the 2015 draft.

Montreal continued to add depth down the middle, signing veterans Jason Arnott and Gregory Campbell.

In the biggest move of the past two weeks, the Sens added some major firepower to their lineup, adding Bobby Ryan in a blockbuster move. They also improved their depth with the additions of Teemu Hartikainen and Andrew Cogliano via free agency and acquired Shawn Horcoff in a deal with Tampa that saw Robyn Regehr going the other way.

As we near the end of July, there are still some decent names on the UFA market as goalies Backstrom and Vokoun remain homeless. Mason Raymond, Nikitin, Selanne and Tallinder are some of the bigger names left among the players remaining in the UFA pool as well.

Good afternoon everyone, James Muffie here. I've been barraged with tweets, emails and texts about the situation in Philadelphia. Here we'll take a look at some of the potential hires on the market.

Dave Tippett: Odds on favorite to be the Flyers primary target. Given they fired Berube after only one loss, it's likely that they had been planning on making the move for a while, but that the candidate they wanted wasn't available during the offseason. Tippett being replaced by Valk could be what they were waiting for.

Michel Therrien: If it wasn't the Tippett dismissal that prompted Berube's firing, then it may have been the sudden availability of Therrien after his mysterious firing in Montreal. Not much has been said about that situation, but it'd get pretty spicy in the East if Therrien ended up with the Flyers.

Terry Murray: The current coach of the Flyers AHL affiliate Phantoms, he could be in line for a promotion. He's been a head coach previously in the NHL with the Capitals, Flyers, Panthers and Kings. In three seasons as head coach of the Flyers (1994–95 through 1996–97), Murray compiled a 118-64-30 record and coached the team to two Atlantic Division Championships (1994–95 and 1995–96) and to the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals as the Eastern Conference Champion.

Guy Boucher: Currently in the Swiss National League, it's believed that he's been trying to work his way back into the NHL since his dismissal from the Tampa Bay Lightning. If the Flyers are looking to go younger and more progressive, this may be their man.

Marc Crawford: Like Boucher, currently coaching overseas, he's currently employed by the ZSC Lions in the National League. He hasn't coached in the NHL since the end of the 2010/11 season but has a wealth of NHL experience behind the bench.

And a name that won't go away, Barry Melrose. Rumor is that GM Mike Sawaryn has long been a fan of Melrose's mind for the game and it's believed that a shot at being a head coach again would convince him to forgo his commitments as a commentator and analyst for the EEHL Network. If this is the move, we would consider no mullet safe and that Ryan Smyth would likely be added as the new captain in very short order.

There's every chance that it won't be anybody from this list or that, like in Montreal, the GM may take his time in finding a new hire and test the job out for a while himself and see how it fits. We'll keep you updated as we find out more.

No returns, refunds, all sales FINAL!

The rumors seemed crazy, but today we have received confirmation from all 4(!) teams involved in a massive deal. Representative from each team have confirmed that the following players and picks have changed hands.

The Montreal Canadiens receive Taylor Hall from the Detroit Red Wings while they send Hopkins to Phoenix and two picks to Carolina (2021 1st and 2nd rounders)

The Phoenix Coyotes receive Ryan Nugent-Hopkins from the Canadiens. They send Matt Moulson, Tyson Baillie and 3 picks to the Hurricanes (Montreal's 2016 1st and their own 2017 2nd and 2016 3rd rounders).

The Red Wings get Jerry Wood (4th overall pick in 2015 draft) from the Hurricanes as well as Carolina's first round pick in next year's draft. They send Taylor Hall to the Canadiens.

The Hurricanes receive Matt Moulson (Pho), Tyson Baillie (11th overall pick by the Coyotes in the 2014 draft), two 1st round picks (2016 from Mon via Pho and Montreals 2021), two second round picks (Pho 2017, Mon 2021) and a third rounder (Pho 2016). They send Jerry Wood and their 2016 1st round pick to Detroit.

So all in all, 4 teams, 11 pieces and a drastically different look for all teams involved. We'll follow up with more from the players, GM's and coaches involved in the coming days.

With Tokunaga's move to Vancouver, it's interesting to see who stayed in Montreal, who was quickly moved to the Canucks and who choose the UFA route. Seems like we're seeing where the lines may have been drawn in that dressing room.
