Flames Daily: Conroy named GM; Panthers on brink of eliminating Hurricanes



Craig Conroy

The worst-kept secret in town is now out: Craig Conroy is the new general manager of the Calgary Flames. First order of business: very likely to hire a new head coach. I hear Mitch Love has time to talk.

Stanley Cup Playoffs

Florida Panthers: Goalie Bob shuts the door on the Carolina Hurricanes to help put the Cats and most-everyone’s favourite former Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk one win away from their second Cup finals appearance in team history.

Vegas Golden Knights: Aidan Hill has been golden in goal since he was called on to man the VGK pipes in Round 2.

Around the NHN network

San Jose Sharks: To trade or not to trade Erik Karlsson.

Pittsburgh Penguins: General manager Kyle Dubas-to-Pens speculation moving into foaming-at-the-mouth lather phase.

Washington Capitals: Kicking the tires on Winnipeg Jets center Mark Scheifele.

Boston Bruins: Pipe dreams continue in Beantown. RNH and his value contract off to the B’s? Is Hampus Lindholm and/or Charlie McAvoy heading the other way then? Also: Don’t forget the Nuge has a NMC.

Montreal Canadiens: More micro-moves under the MHN microscope. Did the Habs saving a retention slot at the trade DL mean a move may come prior the NHL Draft?

Chicago Blackhawks: 2016-17 ‘hastened’ this quasi-rebuild of a rollercoaster the team’s been on ever since.

Stuff about the NHL

New York Rangers: Blueshirts coaching gig surely the league’s most-desirable bench destination right now.

Winnipeg Jets: Blue-chip defensive prospect Leon Gawanke, who scored 20 goals from the blueline for the AHL Manitoba Moose this season, has signed with a German club and says he wants his NHL rights to be traded.

New York Islanders: And Rangers. Yes, it’s really been nine years since a New York team has played in an outdoor game, but that drought looks like it’ll end next winter with a game between NYI and NYR at Citi Field, home of baseball’s Mets.
