Just turned on the Nash/TB game and low and behold, Mike McCarron is playing for the Preds. :4845:

Will be interesting to see how Dauphin does this year. I dont think either of them had a chance of cracking our lineup. McCarron might get some games there for sure.  He's only played a couple so far i think?

Greg Pateryn

Entering his final year under contract with the Wild in the pandemic delayed 2020–21 season, Pateryn registered 2 assists through the opening 3 games before he was traded by Minnesota to divisional rival, the Colorado Avalanche, in exchange for Ian Cole on January 19, 2021.[11] He made his Avalanche debut, playing in a third-pairing role in a 4-2 defeat to the Los Angeles Kings on January 21, 2021.[12] Following his third game with Colorado and with the blueline returning to health Pateryn was placed on waivers by the Avalanche on January 25, 2021.[13] Placed on the club's taxi squad, Pateryn was later re-assigned to AHL affiliate, the Colorado Eagles, on February 11, 2021. Selected as captain, Pateryn scored the season opening goal in his debut with the Eagles in a 3-2 defeat to the San Diego Gulls on February 13, 2021.[14]

Sven Andrighetto

As a free agent with minimal multi-term offers from the NHL, Andrighetto opted to leave North America in agreeing to a long rumoured two-year contract with Russian club, Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), on 9 July 2019.[18] In his debut season in the KHL, Andrighetto began the 2019–20 season in a top-six role. Unable to increase his offensive influence from the NHL, Andrighetto contributed with 13 goals and 27 points in 56 regular season games. He added two assists in Avangard's upset first-round defeat to Salavat Yulaev Ufa in six games.

Exactly one-year after he signed with Avangard, Andrighetto opted to end his tenure with the club by mutually terminating the remaining year his contract, on 9 July 2020.[19]

On 15 July 2020, Andrighetto officially returned to Switzerland and agreed to a five-year contract worth CHF 4 million with the ZSC Lions of the National League (NL).[20]

For those following along at home, Galchenyuk now traded to the Leafs, so he won't actually leave Canada and doesn't need to quarantine. That's Mtl-Ari-Pit-Min-Ott-Car-Tor.

There are still a few teams left to try out! wow he is not doing very well at sticking with a team! he may do ok in Toronto big market some good players he may get a fair shot. he will probably blow it but I am interested to see how he does

For someone who never lived up to his draft position, it's still pretty surprising to see how much he's bounced around. What was it... 5-6 years in Montreal? And now it seems like he can't even get one full season completed with an organization.

Im actually not that surprised. He's still relatively young, 6 of his 9 seasons have be (prorated) 40 points or more - yes he fell of a cliff ine last two years but there's talent there. I think GMs see him as a reclamation project... if they can just do _____ right they'll have a 40-50 point scorer for nothing... don't think he'll bounce back but certainly wouldn't be surprised if he did.

The problem never was his skill set and never will be his issue. Maybe he can put up 40  points in a season. It does not nearly compensate for the rest of his game.He quite frankly is one of the worst players in the league on the defensive side of the puck. Jonathan Drouin looks like Bob Gainey next to him. And as a teammate that is not good.

The problem for alex is that most of the guys i can think of that are actually worse than him are just so much better offensively that its tough to compare them.  Kessel, Laine and Kuznetsov are three guys id say are quite a bit worse but they all produced so much more that its worth the defensive gaffes. 

I dont think it helps that his dad is apparently problematic and he has been rumored to sulk a bit.  I just think its too bad because he could have had a good career, under different circumstances.
