Boston Bruins - Finish below Toronto in the regular season standings, but beats them in the first round of the playoffs.

Chicago Blackhawks - Over half of Erik Gustafsson's points come on the PP.
Colorado Avalanche - Cale Makar suffers an injury, causing him to miss 20+ games, leading to a Calder controversy about whether he should win it or not (he doesn't).

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Brian2016</b></div><div>You're right about the player having to sign the OS, but I guess my point is that McDavid's contract sure seems like an excellent value now. He was never available as an RFA b/c he signed a year early, if my memory serves me well. I just can't believe a team would consider $12.5M for Marner given what McDavid signed for. And Draisaitl is probably an even better value at $8.5M. I can see these negotiations w/ Marner dragging on til Sept. or even longer.</div></div>

Both McDavid's and Draisaitl's deals pre-dated the explosion of RFA contracts, so I bet no one even thought to give him anything higher than $13 million; although you could even say that they started the wave, followed by Eichel and then Matthews. Now both of their deals seem either very reasonable (McDavid) or an absolute steal (Draisaitl) especially since both got the full 8 years so Edmonton can take full advantage of the term and don't have to worry about an earlier, larger payment due to early UFA status, i.e. Matthews and Aho.

Now younger players are finally starting to realize their value/worth to the team and will start demanding high-dollar contracts that either take them straight to UFA status or only buy up a year of UFA status. I'd argue that Matthews really started that wave when he signed only a 5-year deal at an eight-figure cap hit, which was pretty unheard of at the time. Now Marner is wanting something similar, and Aho just signed a similar deal.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Daoloth</b></div><div>I don't care what some troll has to think who can't say anything that is beyond a personal attack against myself... "Worst Takes I've Ever seen"... Really, so you just do these little replies attacking me or others without any context... Your stupid icon is the worst thing I've ever seen or take on an icon... Why... Well I don't need any seasons or have to give any details... I have over 1K posts doing mostly 1 line petty attacks...

Basically for somebody slow like yourself on a post that was stated not to be overly serious in its context... I would not be paying max compensation for a player most likely unless it was a franchise right shot D-man in their prime not their decline... That has value, its about supply/demand, Mariner is a guy who has a lot of supply compared to demand... There is a high demand for right shot D-men, especially #1 level who can play 25-30 minutes a game... While other positions there is a lot more supply to meet that demand...

See there is something called supply and demand in economics... You clearly don't have a clue about anything... Nor for having so many posts would I doubt that is the worst thing... Rangers has like 25K posts on here but don't seem to even know where Islanders are playing or that they got a new arena by talking about Barclays which is going to be in the past soon :). I would just beat you up if ever said something this stupid to me in person... Oh wait you wouldn't, cuz only trolls live on the internet or under bridges... HOw is that for a take idiot? Don't even comment about me or reply to my posts... You are just trolling me, doing personal attacks without context and have nothing of value to say in the over 1K posts I've read of yours...

Take Care loser...</div></div>

Lol I'm a troll for disagreeing with your assessments? Okay then. You likely put more personal attacks in this one comment than I have in half of the 1,000+ comments I've left.
