Storm Advisory for July 28: NHL News, Rumors, Links and Daily Roundup

Adieu, Andrei.

Montreal Canadiens v Toronto Maple Leafs

Reading Assignments

Andrew Schnittker of the Technician makes a strong argument that Ron Francis’ moves this offseason mean the Hurricanes’ rebuild is over. [Technician]

A bit of a stunner in Montreal: after 16 seasons, Andrei Markov is leaving the Canadiens to head to Russia (and presumably the Russian Olympic team). [Canadiens]

And now Marc Bergevin has his work cut out for him to replace a top-pairing defenseman, which at this point of the offseason will not be easy. [Eyes On The Prize]

Connor McDavid, as emphatic as ever regarding the NHL’s decision to bypass the Winter Olympics: “I’m really upset about it.” [Sportsnet]

The Islanders could be on the move again, if local politics don’t get in the way and their expected bid for a new arena on the eastern edge of Queens is successful. [Lighthouse Hockey]
