Good point about Bernier. His presence on the market potentially drives down Luongo's value as well, if Van plans on moving him.
Columbus may have jumped the gun a bit on Bob ? Leafs could make a play for him, but not sure if another young goalie is best for them. I think the Flames should make a play for him for when Kipper is done ??

#NHL signing. Canucks agree on new 3 year deal worth 12M with G Cory Schneider. 4M is his new cap hit.
Quick's contract doesn't look so bad
Can't really compare a guy who hasn't won anything with a guy who just won a Cup, Smythe and was a Vezina runner up. Plus Schneider hasn't had the pressure on him like Luongo so you don't really know what you've got until he's been the #1 guy for a season.
Serious question: What are the odds of Pittsburgh signing both Suter AND Parise?
They have the cap I believe, but I think it's pretty safe to say they won't sign both. Both Malkin and Letang will hit UFA in the next couple of years, with Letang getting a pretty sizeable raise. If they sign Suter and Parise, there's a good chance they would lose at least one of those guys, which might be a worse option.
