The NHL should not permit the players to perform off-season training.  You never know when a player can get injured and miss significant time, thereby impacting their team’s performance.

Wonder if what theyd trade for a center.. maybe Helm?  One of the few teams with cap space.

Helm is definitely the kind of player they could use, but not on the 1st line. I think it’s more likely they make the Duchene trade happen.

Duchene woukd cost them a premium.  Helm would require less assets than Duchene, put him into your top 6 as the 2C and shelter your other 2Cs Dzone starts with a D and face ofd specialist.

Especially if it has anything to do with growing the game like the Olympics. That would be such a horrible waste.

They can have Helm for nothing as long as they take his contract.
