The Toronto Maple Leafs are now 2-0-1 in meaningless games this season after beating the Ottawa Senators in Kanata last night. Preseason games are fun when you get to see guys like Morgan Rielly and Mason Raymond in a Leafs’ uniform for the first time, but then you see Jonathan Bernier and Nazem Kadri leave the game with injuries and WHY DO THEY PLAY THESE DUMB GAMES THEY’RE SO DUMB. Anyways, here are the links!

Oilers Sign Ryan Nugent-Hopkins To 7-Year Extension

The deal is identical to Taylor Hall’s and the same cap hit but one year longer than Jordan Eberle’s. Things will get very interesting in 2014-15 when the Oilers only have two defensemen and no goalies under contract. From Derek Stykalo of Oil on Whyte.
