Pro Hockey Talk
While Selanne won't be returning to the Anaheim Ducks for another season, he is reportedly entertaining the possibility of playing for Jokerit, a Finnish squad that will make its KHL debut in 2014-15. That would complete the circle of Selanne's hockey career as he got his start with Jokerit Helsinki back when they played in the Finnish league before breaking into the NHL.

In other words, King will come with a $1.95 million annual cap hit, which is a substantial increase from his previous annual salary of $750,000. The Kings don't have any restricted free agents left to sign and while they're close to the cap, they should be fine in that regard.

Archibald encouraged by Benning's goals 07-30-2014
Darren Archibald LW VAN
Darren Archibald is encouraged by Canucks GM Jim Benning desired to add more "meat-and-potatoes" players to the team's lineup.

Vancouver Province
"That's the definition of my game," Archibald said. "I'm not out there trying to do anything fancy or make highlight-reel plays. My job is to be strong on the forecheck and bring pucks to the net." It wasn't long ago Archibald was struggling to even establish himself in the AHL, but he's coming off a strong season where he made his NHL debut and went on to record three points in 16 games with Vancouver.
Nail Yakupov will wear No. 10 in 2014-15 07-30-2014
Nail Yakupov RW EDM
Nail Yakupov will switch from No. 64 to 10 in 2014-15.

Edmonton Journal
Yakupov has traditionally worn No. 10 in honor of Pavel Bure, but he couldn't use the number when the Oilers' drafted him because Shawn Horcoff had it. When Horcoff was traded to the Dallas Stars, he gave Yakupov his blessing to take his number, but Yakupov wanted to allow some time to pass before taking him up on that offer. "I said, 'Horc, no offense, but the fans are going to miss you and they know you played with No. 10 for a long time, so I'll wait a little bit and then I'll take it,'" Yakupov said.
P.K. Subban asks arbitrator for $8.5 million 07-30-2014
P.K. Subban D MON
P.K. Subban has asked an arbitrator to provide him with a $8.5 million annual salary.

Elliotte Friedman on Twitter
Montreal has countered with a $5.25 million offered and has specified that they would like the arbitrator to provide Subban with a one-year deal. The hearing is scheduled for Friday, but of course both sides can make it moot if they're able to agree to terms before that date. Subban's demands aren't surprising given that he's coming off of a great season and won the Norris Trophy in 2013. He's experienced an interest in staying with the Canadiens for the long haul, but he won't come cheap.
Brad Marchand: I can't stand Tomas Plekanec 07-30-2014
Brad Marchand C BOS
Brad Marchand was asked to name the NHL player that irritates him the most and he didn't need time to come up with his answer.

CSN New England
"Tomas Plekanec from Montreal.I hate him," Marchand said. "I can't stand him. No, I probably shouldn't say that. I dislike him very much. Now somebody is going to call and get mad at me tomorrow." The rivalry between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens is always heated, but tensions are particularly high after Montreal edged out Boston in seven games in the second round of the 2014 playoffs.
