Will this be the SUMMER OF THE OFFER SHEET? Here’s what a few GMs think about them, including a thought from Ray Shero: [The Athletic ($)]
A rough evening for former Devil Marcus Johansson:

Bruce Cassidy on Marcus Johansson (upper body): "He went to the hospital...it looks encouraging, but I don't want to speak out of turn. When tests are done we'll have a better answer."— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 6, 2019
Interesting Matt Cullen stat:
7,051 skaters, including Matt Cullen, have suited up for at least one game since the NHL formed in 1917.— Pittsburgh Penguins (@penguins) March 5, 2019
Since Cullen's debut, 3,467 skaters have played at least one game, not including him.
Cullen's NHL career has overlapped 49.1% of all skaters to ever play a game.

From the NHL GM meetings:
Another rule recommention from the GMs: teams going on the power play will choose which side they want the faceoff to be. Only on first faceoff to begin the power play. Obvious advantage for power play team. The AHL already does this.— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) March 5, 2019
GMs also endorsed the idea of having clocks in the corner boards in all 31 rinks. Which we saw in the outdoor games. Will require Board of Governors approval— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) March 5, 2019
