The Sharks could bring back Patrick Marleau after all, reports Pierre Lebrun:
Hearing that things are heating up on the Patrick Marleau front. And that the banged-up Sharks are among the teams who have reached out to his camp. Could potentially see a Marleau reunion in San Jose after all. A couple of other teams also in the mix. https://t.co/T7gNGbRkNK

Elliotte Friedman reported more than a month ago that the Sharks were not currently a fit.
Lebrun reports there are a couple other teams involved as well.
According to the St. Louis Blues, the team has acquired Justin Faulk and a 5th round pick from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Joel Edmundson, prospect Dominik Bokk, and a 7th round pick.
The Blues also announce that they reached an agreement on a new contract for Faulk, which will be 7 years at an AAV of $6.5 million, starting in 2020-21.

The Blues will have Faulk, Alex Pietrangelo and Colton Parayko patrolling the right side of their blueline. Pietrangelo is eligible to be a UFA this summer and Parayko has three seasons left on his contract.
Bob McKenzie reports that Dustin Byfuglien is pondering his NHL future.
Dustin Byfuglien, currently on personal leave from WPG, is believed to be using the time to ponder his NHL future. I’m not saying Byfuglien is retiring; I’m not saying he’s coming back to play. Only that he’s contemplating his options and there’s no timetable for a decision.

Byfuglien, 34, has two seasons left on his contract at an AAV of $7.6 million.

At the completion of this contract, Boeser will be two seasons away from unrestricted free agency.
Elliotte Friedman reports that the base salary in the final year of the contract is $7.5 million, meaning his qualifying offer will be that amount for the Canucks to retain his RFA rights after three seasons.
The Flyers have re-signed Travis Konecny to a 6-year contract with an AAV of $5.5 million.

Konecny, 22, had 24 goals and 25 assists in 82 games with the Flyers last season. Before signing this contract, Konecny was 4 seasons away from UFA status.
Darren Dreger reports that it appears the Maple Leafs and Mitch Marner are closing in on a new contract.
Now getting the sense the Leafs are closing in on a Marner extension.

Talks between the team and the RFA winger have been a focal point of the summer. Reports are that Marner wanted a short-term deal while the Leafs preferred a contract as long as 8 years.
