The Pittsburgh Penguins are looking for a new AGM if you want to drop them a resume. (PittsburghHockeyNow)

Even though it’s kinda quiet right now, it doesn’t mean we won’t see some movement still. Here are six names that could be on the move yet. (The Score)
I’ll be honest. When it comes to winning in sports, I feel like “if you ain’t first, you’re last.” Intelligent hockey fans know what’s going on with their team. Chicago needed to write a letter to tell fans they’re rebuilding? Apparently. So is Boston next? (Boston Hockey Now)
We here at VHN hoped that Friday’s virtual GM meeting would shed light on when next season might begin. But as TSN’s Frank Seravalli reports, that didn’t happen. He did, however, suggest the league would like a big-time opening whenever that may be. (TSN)
When it comes to Anthony Duclair, I wouldn’t touch him with a 10-meter cattle prod (bonus points if you get that reference). But Christian Arnold says the Islanders should make it happen. (NYI Hockey Now)
Are you into analytics or not? I’m a big believer in the eye test to judge a player, but those fancy stats do have a place. Just not in the locker room, according to Sharks associate coach Rocky Thompson. (SanJoseHockeyNow)
That’s it for today. Look for another edition of Tom’s VHN Daily every weekday!
