DRW did call me about season ticket offers and how I could get an evening with Steve Yzerman.  Thanks, maybe another time when I don’t live 600 miles away.

Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic ($$$), mostly on the Lightning but on a few other teams to…

Thomas Vanek doesn’t plan to pack it in. The 35-year-old winger is a pending UFA and will poke around in free agency to see if there’s a fit anywhere. “His intent is to play,’’ his agent Steve Bartlett said on Tuesday. Bartlett said he hasn’t talked to new Wings GM Steve Yzerman yet but plans to do so hopefully this week in Vancouver. Vanek had 16 goals in 64 games this past season. As a 35 and over guy, he can sign a bonus-laden deal which helps cap-challenged teams to some degree.
