With the signing of Evgeni Malkin, the striker Johnny Gaudreau becomes the most interesting free agent of this free agent opening day. According to the latest rumor, the star of the Calgary Flames has turned down an offer of USD 10 million for 8 years. It seems that this amount, however enormous, is not yet sufficient for Gaudreau. So pressure or a real desire to leave, the answer should be known tonight.
Note that the Flames will also see the defender Nikita Zadorov leave the ship. The Russian giant had 18 points in 74 games last season.
