Free Agent Hits: Pietrangelo, Stepan, Henrique and Bobrovsky

  • Mark Masters: Blues RFA defenseman Alex Pietrangelo: “I’m not even thinking about holding out. I’m thinking about training camp & being there.”
  • Steve Zipay of Newsday: Rangers RFA center Derek Stepan gave no indication that he’ll hold out and not attend training camp.

    “I don’t expect either side expects me not to be [at camp],” Stepan said in his first public comments on the negotiations this summer during the first day of the U.S. National Team’s orientation camp. “Both sides are working at finding the right number and a fair deal . . . I don’t think anybody wants it to stretch out longer than it should.”

    The Rangers have offered him a two-year “bridge contract.” The Rangers are about $2.1 million below the salary cap, and that is with eight defenseman and 14 forwards.

  • Mike Brehm: Salary breakdown for Adam Henrique: $2 million, $3 million, $4 million, $4.5 million, $5 million and $5.5 million.
  • Blue Jackets Sergei Bobrovsky had “high level” talks with SKA, but the NHL was the best career option “by far.” SKA reportedly offered Bobrovsky $10 million a season. The offer has never been confirmed, but back in June, team executive Alexander Medvedev said it was “an excellent offer.”

Free Agent Hits: Pietrangelo, Henrique, Jagr, Grabovski and Lewis

  • Luke Fox of SportsNet: Blues RFA Alex Pietrangelo is reportedly looking for nearly $7 million a season, with the Blues hoping to settle on $6 million or less. The Blues are getting close to the cap ceiling and still have RFAs Jake Allen and Magnus Paajarvi to sign.

    “There’s been communication. I’m not going to say it’s done yet; there’s definitely a ways to go. It’s kind of a fun thing to go through, the first time you go through these negotiations,” Pietrangelo explained, shortly after chatting privately about his contract status with teammate Brian Elliott. “You try to keep it as internal as you can because you don’t know what direction it’s going, but I enjoy talking to (my teammates) about it. They’re all interested, which means they want me back and they all care.”

  • Andrew Gross: Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said there is no update on Adam Henrique,but they remain hopeful about negotiations.
  • Chris JohnstonJaromir Jagr’s deal with the Devils is for $2 million base salary with up to $2 million more in bonuses for games played. He’ll get $250,000 for every five games played from games 10 to 45.
  • Chuck Gormley of CSN WashintonBrooks Laich is the Capitals current second line, but he could move the left side, which is a little weak, if they bring in a center. Center Mikhail Grabovski is an intriguing option for the Capitals. GM George McPhee has said that the free agent market didn’t interest him this summer.
  • Darren Dreger: The Kings and Trevor Lewis avoid arbitration with a one-year, $1.325 million deal.

  • Chip Alexander: Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said they are close to re-signing Zac Dalpe and confirmed that they have talked to Brenden Morrow.

    “A number of teams have expressed interest in Mark,” his agent Gerry Johannson said Thursday. “There’s a healthy market for him and it’s just about being patient. It was an interesting year in Edmonton and I don’t think Mark was disillusioned; it’s just the reality of the business that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. A contract (offer) is going to depend on the team, the situation and a lot of other variables.”

    The Canucks have just under $5.2 million to sign Dale Weise, Chris Tanev, Jordan Schroeder and one other depth defenseman.

  • Toronto Sun: Top remaining free agents: Ilya Bryzgalov, Jaromir Jagr, Mikhail Grabovski, Brenden Morrow, Damien Brunner, Mason Raymond, Simon Gagne, Vinny Prospal, Teemu Selanne and Rick DiPietro.

Quick Hits: Grabovski, Hainsey, Morrow and Henrique

  • Dmitry Chesnokov: Former Maple Leafs center Mikhail Grabovski has only received one KHL offer. He’s not considering the KHL, only the NHL. Igor Eronko: Atlant GM on Grabovski: “We made an offer to Grabovski, but he wants to stay in #NHL, so we won’t see him in our team”
  • Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News & Observer: The Hurricanes continue to sniff around free agent defenseman Ron Hainsey. Trading Joni Pitkanen or Tim Gleason to make room for Hainsey on the blueline doesn’t make a lot of sense. Brenden Morrow’s agent confirmed that he has spoken with the Hurricanes. Thought the Hurricanes have $5 million in cap space, they are close to their internal cap number of $59.3 million. Morrow would fit nice with Jordan Staal and Tuomo Ruutu.
  • Rich Chere of the Star Ledger: Adam Henrique and the Devils could reach a reach a deal by the end of the week.

    “Could be. It’s close. It’s coming along well,” Henrique confirmed. “There is no huge rush or deadline, so we’re just going at it a day at a time.”

    After Ilya Kovalchuk walked away from the Devils, it could have given Henrique more leverage.

    “I should just ask for the rest of his contract,” Henrique joked in a conversation today with The Star-Ledger.

    “I never really looked at it as giving me more power or anything like that. We’re just trying to get something fair for myself and for the team. It obviously opens up a little more cap space.”

Free Agent Hits II: Clarkson, Horton, Stalberg, Red Wings, Flyers, Jets and offer sheets

  • Darren Dreger: Little doubt that David Clarkson a seven year deal, and some GMs are thinking he’ll get $6 million plus.
  • Bob McKenzie: McKenzie thinks that Clarkson will end up with a Canadian team. He’s visited the Oilers, Senators and Maple Leafs. He also visited the Blue Jackets.
  • David Pagnotta: The Blue Jackets have been busy. They met with Nathan Horton, David Clarkson and others.
  • Will DePaoli: The Red Wings interest in Jarome Iginla is just preliminary at this point as they are a finalist for Daniel Alfredsson.
  • Sam Carchidi via sulia: Carchidi thinks that the Flyers should pass on left winger Simon Gagne and go after Viktor Stalberg. Would be perfect on a line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read.
  • Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: Five possible targets for the Jets: Clarke MacArthur, Damien Brunner, Viktor Stalberg, Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Nathan Gerbe.
  • Ansar Khan: Free agent options for the Red Wings: Mikhail Grabovski, Stephen Weiss (primary target), Mike Ribeiro and Matt Cullen.
  • Frank Seravalli: Flyers may not want to trade defenseman Braydon Coburn, but he’s their best trade chip. Seravalli wonders if they’d have interest in Jaromir Jagr again. Will the Flyers be tempted with offer sheets for Alex Pietrangelo, Travis Hamonic or Jonathan Bernier?
  • Bob McKenzie: McKenzie wonders if there will be offer sheets. The salary cap going down and teams are not able to stash money in the minors, some teams may be vulnerable.
  • Darren Dreger: There is already talks about offer sheets from teams with cap space: Alex Pietrangelo, Zach Bogosian, Brian Little, Josh Baily, Adam Henrique and Travis Hamonic.
