NHL Rumors II: Senators and Devils

  • Ken Warren: Senators Jason Spezza was non-committal about what is next. He added that both he and Bryan Murray will need some time to “reflect.” Wayne Scanlan: Spezza said that he can see himself with the Senators long-term, but wants to reflect before thinking about a new contract. He has a no-trade clause in his current deal. (expires at the end of next season)
  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Jason Spezza on trade talk.

    “I’m not naive to the talk. I’ve been asked the question lots,” said Spezza. “There’s a lot of reflecting to go on here during the months leading up to next season and I’m sure that will be a topic.”

    The Ducks and Blues have shown interest. The asking price would be a first round pick, a player who could play in the NHL right away and a top prospect. Spezza has a no-trade clause.

    “That’s one of the things you have in your contract and it’s there for a reason,” Spezza said about the clause.

  • Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen: If the Senators are going to trade Jason Spezza, it would likely cost them Ales Hemsky.

    “I want to play with a good centre,” said Hemsky, scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. “That’s the most important for me. Jason been great to me. I had a blast to play with him. I would like to know what they want to do.”

    “I came here with high expectations and in the end, we didn’t make it,” said Hemsky.

    “We’re having meetings now (between his agent and Senators general manager Bryan Murray) and we’ll see what’s going on. I’ve got to know what’s the future here and what they’re thinking and I will go from there. It’s just a few talks, nothing really big. I’m not rushing anything. I will see my options.”

  • Wayne Scanlan: Senators Milan Michalek: ”I love it here and I’d like to stay but we’ll see what happens.”
  • Rich Chere: Devils Jaromir Jagr said that his familiarity with the organization and their system would be a factor in where he plays next year: ”When I think about where I’m going to play next year it will be a big factor for me. Hopefully I come back and I’ll have better numbers and help the team make playoffs.”
  • Rich Chere: Devils pending RFA Adam Larsson: ”I’m going home and see what I’m going to do. For sure there’s been some ups and downs, but I’m still a young guy.”
  • Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Indications are that the Devils will try to re-sign Marek Zidlicky.

    “I’d like to stay, but we’ll see,” Zidlicky said. “That’s up to Lou. That’s what I said (last summer), I’d like to say, but it’s not only my decision.”

    It is unclear what they will do with Mark Fayne.

    “I would love to, so I hope so,” Fayne said of re-signing. “But at the same time, who knows?”

    There are questions on what they will do with defenseman Bryce Salvador (one-year left) and Anton Volchenkov (two-years left).

    “All personnel questions are for Lou. I think him and I will sit down like we always do at the end of the year and look at things like that.”

    “I think every NHL team needs to have younger guys in the lineup,” DeBoer continued. “That’s the norm across the board. You need young people, you need young legs. You can’t have a whole team of them, but I think you need those young players.”

    If they will look to trade or buy out Salvador and/or Volchenkov remains to be seen.

    “I think whatever changes you make have to be for the better,” Lamoriello said. “So, whenever you can get better, you make changes. If you can make the right changes to get getter, we certainly will. As far as ‘have to,’ you’d like to do a lot of things, but you might not be able to. So, we’ll do the best we can to make us better.”

NHL Rumors: Sabres, Canucks, Penguins, Kings, Panthers, Senators and Maple Leafs

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Sabres GM Tim Murray is willing to trade almost anyone. He’s been shopping Chris Stewart, Christian Ehrhoff, Luke Adam and Drew Stafford. They will also listen to offers on Marcus Foligno, Johan Larsson and Chad Ruhwedel.

    “He’s just open for business,” said a league executive about Murray before the weekend. “He hasn’t drafted any of these current guys.”

    Pat LaFontaine interviewed 15 people before deciding on Tim Murray.

    Coyotes assistant Brad Treliving may be one of the top candidates for the Canucks GM position.

    The Penguins and Blackhawks were close to trading for Ryan Kesler at the deadline. Trading Kesler could be revisited at the draft.

    There could be lots of changes in Carolina this offseason.

    Penguins coach Dan Bylsma will be under the microscope if they don’t go far into the playoffs.

    The Kings could be a landing spot for Mike Cammalleri.

    John Ferguson Jr. could be the top candidate to replace Brendan Shanahan.

    One option for Martin Brodeur next season is to mentor Marc-Andre Fleury in Pittsburgh. The Islanders also need a goaltender.

    Panthers GM Dale Tallon may be on the hotseat. Garrioch suggests bringing in Doug MacLean as president to help Tallon.

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators will have to decide if they want to re-sign pending UFAs Milan Michalek, Ales Hemsky and Matt Kassian. One year away from free agency will be Jason Spezza, Bobby Ryan, Craig Anderson, Clarke MacArthur and Marc Methot. Spezza knows changes are coming.

    “I don’t look at it that way. I think that when you do have a season of disappointment there’s going to be change in the room. This isn’t going to be the same group next year and we’re all well aware of that,” said Spezza, in his first year as captain.

  • Steve Simmons: Dave Nonis’ inclination may have been to keep Randy Carlyle as coach. Brendan Shanahan may not think that way. Reports from New Jersey may be that Shanahan would like Peter DeBoer as they coach. Simmons likes the Leafs core of Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk, Jonathan Bernier, Tyler Bozak, Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner, but the contracts of Dion Phaneuf, Joffrey Lupul and David Clarkson will make it hard for them to build around their young core.
  • George Richards: Panthers defenseman Ed Jovanoski said wants to play year. The Panthers will have to pay him $4 million whether he plays or not. Steve Simmons: (responding) The Panthers will look to trade Jovanovski if possible. They are fed up with his lack of leadership as he’s not showing the kids the way.
  • Hockey Night in Canada: Hotstove Tonight. Panel discussing the Canucks, Maple Leafs and Predators.

NHL Injuries: Red Wings, Maple Leafs, Oilers, Blues, Devils, Senators and Ducks

  • Bob Duff: Red Wings GM Ken Holland said that Henrik Zetterberg (back surgery) should be able to start skating next week. The earliest he could return to the lineup would be late in the first round.
  • Bob Duff: Red Wings GM Ken Holland indicated that Stephen Weiss is likely done for the year after many setbacks from his sports hernia surgery.
  • David Alter: Maple Leafs Jonathan Bernier will be out three weeks with an MCL strain.
  • Chris Johnston: Maple Leafs Joffrey Lupul skated in track pants yesterday morning. Not expected to play tonight.
  • Edmonton Oilers: Oilers coach Dallas Eakins doesn’t expect Nail Yakupov to play again this season.
  • Lou Korac: Blues Vladimir Tarasenko skated yesterday.
  • Lou Korac: Blues Jordan Leopold will be in the lineup tonight. Barrett Jackman returns to the lineup, with Carlo Colaiacovo sitting.
  • Rich Chere: Both Devils Patrik Elias and Adam Henrique left last night’s game.
  • Ottawa Senators: Senators Ales Hemsky left last night’s game with an upper-body injury.
  • Eric Stephens: Ducks Frederik Andersen left last night’s game with an upper-body injury.

NHL Rumors II: Islanders, Bruins, Panthers, Maple Leafs and Canucks

  • Josh Kosman and Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Islanders owner Charles Wang is talking with Andrew Barroway, a Philadelphia lawyer, about a potential sale of the team. The price could be $225 million and potentially another $75 million if certain revenue targets are met. Wang has been open to the idea of selling the team for years, but there has been limited interest. They lose more than $10 million a year and have one of the lowest attendance. The Islanders will be moving to the Barclays Center in 2015, and Barclay’s is paying them $50 million in annual revenue for regular season games. Barclay’s would keep any revenue from sponsorship, suite and tickets sales over the $50 million. Playoff money would go to the team an not Barclay’s.
  • Stephen Harris of the Boston Hearld: Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli wants to keep Jarome Iginla and have held preliminary talks with him. A deal can’t be completed as they don’t have the cap room to get deal done now.

    “It’s a function of cap space and ongoing multiple-year contracts,” Chiarelli said before his team’s 4-3 shootout win against the Flyers. “So it would have to wait ’til a minute after free agency begins (July 1). It’s an anti-inflationary thing. Basically it restricts you from going overboard on your future contracts. It prevents you from spending money you haven’t got.”

  • Craig Custance of ESPN: Panthers offseason priorities: 1. Find the right head coach 2. Bring in veteran to surround young talent 3. Develop a culture and identity.  Potential free agent targets: Ales Hemsky, Steve Ott and Brooks Orpik.
  • Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs pending UFA Nikolai Kulemin’s agent, Gary Greenstin, has had informal talks with director of hockey operations Dave Poulin and assistant GM Claude Loiselle. Kulemin is in the last year of deal in which he’s getting $2.8 million. Kulemin wants to play in the NHL over the KHL.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”Nonis won’t go out and spend a pile of money to replace Kulemin when he has an Ashton ready to step in”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”I look at Ashton who is apparently doing very well of late in the AHL. Holland who is exiled as well to the Marlies at times” … ”Leafs mgmt sees those guys as real NHL players. They will be in the NHL next year” … ”The expectations are that the coaching staff, if it is Randy Carlyle, will use those players” … ”Nonis just needs a coach that is going to play these players”
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: There is a good chance that the Canucks will fire head coach John Tortorella. He has four-years and $8 million left on his deal.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”Could see significant changes in TO. There has been much debate over the future of Carlyle and that isn’t going away” … ”There is going to be an exhaustive discussion and review at the conclusion of this season about the coaching staff”

NHL Rumors: Canadiens, Capitals and Senators

  • Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette: Hickey wonders if the Canadiens should give the 35-year old Andrei Markov a three-year contract extension. Markov has been the cornerstone of Canadiens blueline since 2000. He’s averaged over 25 minutes a game this season, 9th overall for defenseman. He’s 13th in points for Dmen with 41, and 9th in power-play point with 22. He kills penalties and has blocked a 160 shots. There are rumors that the Canadiens have made offers of one and two years, but were rejected. Markov has moved away from his initial, unrealistic hope of a five-year deal. A year deal is still somewhat risky given his injury history. There is also the risk of his salary counting against the cap even if he retires, due to it being a 35+ contract.
  • Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington: (mailbag) Responding to question if Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer are the Capitals goaltenders of the future. Two months ago it looked like they would be, but if pending UFA Jaroslav Halak is able to get the team into the playoffs, that could change. Holtby has one year left on his deal. Gormley wouldn’t be surprised if Holtby and Grubauer are their goaltenders next season. Halak will likely be looking for more than the $4.5 million he’s making this season. Gormley thinks there is a better chance that they re-sign Mikhail Grabovski over Dustin Penner. If they could re-sign Grabovski for around $4 million, he’d be a good second line center with Evgeny Kuznetsov and either Tom Wilson or Troy Brouwer next season.
  • Ian Mendes of TSN: Senators GM Bryan Murray on TSN 1200 radio last night. On Paul MacLean’s job security:

    “I don’t have a definite answer to that, but Paul’s got a contract going forward. He was Coach of the Year last year and I don’t know what happened this year necessarily as far as performance is concerned,” Murray said.

    Murray said that Bobby Ryan will be able to resume off-ice training. Ryan will be a UFA after next season and they will be able to start contract extension talks after July 1st.

    “I think he’s going to be happy to talk to us. We certainly plan to try to keep him, we hope to get something done with Bobby so he will have a long career in Ottawa,” said Murray.

    Murray on pending UFA Ales Hemsky:

    “I’ve said hello to his agent and I’ve talked to Ales a little bit and I get the impression he likes it here, he likes the city and he likes the way he’s been treated. Until you start talking and realize what the commitment is – term and dollar wise – it’s hard to know. Certainly we’ll have conversations and that’s part of the reason why we traded for him at the deadline. We thought if we could get him on board here and he gets to know the group and how we operate, it might be easier for us to negotiate with him and can be an advantage for us.”

    Murray on pending RFA Robin Lehner:

    “I know that Robin has indicated that he likes Ottawa and he wants to stay here,” said Murray. “We’ll get it done with Robin, but it’s just a matter of where he fits into our long-term plans here.”

NHL Rumors: Clarkson, Leafs, Hemsky, Miller, Iginla, Greiss and Old Habs-Lightning Trade Rumor

  • Greg Brady: SportsNet’s Doug MacLean said yesterday morning on the Fan 590 that there will be serious discussions from the Maple Leafs about the possibility of buying out David Clarkson this summer for salary cap relief.
  • Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun: Five members of the Maple Leafs organization who are on the hot seat as playoffs slip away: 1. Dion Phaneuf 2. Randy Carlyle 3. Jonathan Bernier (not due to his play) 4. David Clarkson 5. Dave Nonis.
  • Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators haven’t started contract talks with pending UFA Ales Hemsky. GM Bryan Murray hasn’t said whether he plans on trying to re-sign Hemsky or not. Murray has been happy with Hemsky’s play since they acquired him.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”I would say the odds of Miller staying in St.Louis are reasonable to more than that.” … ”I’ve been led to believe that the term Miller is seeking as a UFA is much shorter than people would think.”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”Iginla is likely to stay in Boston. Chiarelli has reached out to Newport Sports.”
  • Sarah McLellan: Contract talks between the Coyotes and Thomas Greiss will resume once the season is over.
  • Hope Smoke: Jeff Marek on #MvsW again yesterday: “Montreal was going to send Price, Pacioretty & one of Subban or McDonagh to TB for Lecavalier”  … ”Reason deal didn’t go through is because a Montreal investor was interested in buying the Lightning & wanted Lecavalier on team.”

Morning Rumors: Miller, Hemsky, Vanek, Iginla, Folin, Carlyle, Maple Leafs and Oilers

  • Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: The Blues have let Ryan Miller’s agent, Mike Liut, know they’d like to re-sign him. Miller will wait until after the season to talk. Miller’s wife is an actress in LA. He has been linked to the Ducks, but they have Frederik Andersen, John Gibson and pending UFA Jonas Hiller.

    The Senators are planning on talking to Ales Hemsky about a contract extension. The money would need to be right for the Sens.

    Thomas Vanek is still planning on testing the free agent market.

  • TSN Insider Trading: Darren Dreger: The Bruins have reached out to Jarome Iginla’s agent last week. There hasn’t been any back-and-forth talk. The Bruins don’t have the tag room to do a deal in-season.

    Bob McKenzie: Ryan Miller may want to wait until July 1st to see if there is any interest from the Ducks. Talk is the Ducks talked to the Sabres earlier this year about Miller, but weren’t able to get a deal done.

    The Flyers, Wild, Lightning and Oilers are among the front-runners for college UFA Christian Folin. Folin is still playing and hasn’t fully committed to a decision just yet.

  • Hope Smoke: Nick Kypreos: ”If Reimer closes out Boston they don’t trade for Bernier. I don’t think Randy has ever gotten over those ten minutes in Boston” … ”Randy is credited, and rightly so, for being a defensive minded coach. When you see the mistakes this team makes it’s unbelievable” … ”Absolutely, without question Randy will be under review this summer”
  • Hope Smoke: TSNs Ray Ferraro: ”The Oilers don’t have enough guys who understand that the right thing is to get out of their own zone. They cheat too much” …. ”Nobody wants to say it, but they [Edmonton] have had the same guy in charge for 8 years in a row while they missed the playoffs” … ”If I was in charge of a team that missed the playoffs 8 years in a row I would have been fired after 4” … ”You can’t have big players that can’t skate and small players that try to trick the puck into the net”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Carlyle is fired. I’m not saying his neck is on the chopping black”
  • Hope Smoke: “Ferraro thinks the Leafs are a top centre, a #1 defenseman, a really good bottom 6 F & a depth D away from being a contender. Is that all?”

Morning Rumors: GMs on the Hotseat, Senators, Goalie Market, Expansion, Leafs, Canes and Hotstove Video

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Garrioch names some GM who could be in trouble this offseason: David Poile (NSH) – if he goes, coach Barry Trotz is likely gone as well. Poile has been the GM since 1998. Assistant GM Paul Fenton could be ready to take over. Mike Gillis (VAN) – if they don’t make the playoffs, it may come down to Gillis or Tortorella. George McPhee (WSH) – his contract is up after the season. Brian Burke in Calgary may be waiting for McPhee.

    The Senators will have decisions to make on Jason Spezza this offseason. The Ducks and Blues inquired about Spezza at the deadline, but they didn’t have serious talks as the Senators will still in the hunt.

    If the Senators can keep Ales Hemsky, they should do it.

    Assuming the Blues re-sign Ryan Miller and Ducks re-sign Jonas Hiller, Jaroslav Halak could get interest if he hits the open market. Would make sense for the Capitals to try and re-sign Halak. Other teams that could be looking for a goaltender this summer are the Islanders, Flames, Wild and Canucks.

    If Seattle gets an expansion team, don’t be surprised if Jeremy Roenick is named as the team president. He has ties with one of the groups that is interested in bringing in a team. Quebec City makes sense for a team and have started to build a new arena. Las Vegas has also made a pitch for a team.

    The Sabres would still like to move Drew Stafford, Tyler Ennis and Christian Ehrhoff. They would also listen to offers on Tyler Myers.

    It is possible that the Canadiens look to re-sign Thomas Vanek, but many think he’ll be end up in Minnesota. Don’t count out the Kings.

    The Panthers are trying to re-sign RFA Dmitry Kulikov. GM Dale Tallon has offered a four-year deal worth $20 million, but Kulikov is looking for four-years and $22 million.

    You have think that James Reimer won’t be back with the Maple Leafs. He’s been linked to the Jets.

    Hurricanes Cam Ward could also be on the move.

  • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Simmons thinks the trade market for James Reimer is limited. There may only be three teams that he could start for: the Islanders, Sabres and Flames. He could complete for the No. 1 with the Jets, Canucks and Oilers. Simmons doesn’t think they would get much for him. There is more supply than demand in the goalie market.

    The Flyers are interested in college UFA defenseman Christian Folin. The Leafs are not interested.

  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Rangers GM Glen Sather on talk of his retirement.

    “Everybody retires sometime, but I’m not intending to step away or retire from anything this year,” Sather told Slap Shots on Friday in Columbus, Ohio. “I don’t know how stories like this keep coming up, because I haven’t said anything to anybody about retiring. … One day, yes. But not now.”

    “There comes a time where you do think about your lifestyle and maybe some of the things you might do if you weren’t doing this job,” he said. “But that’s not where my thoughts are now. I’m working to build this team into a Stanley Cup winner. That’s my priority. That’s what I’m focused on. … I’m not thinking about stepping back, or a change in my title or in my responsibilities.”

  • Hockey Night in Canada Hotstove: Talk on Christian Folin and Jack Eichel. P.K. Subban and the Canadiens will talk after the season and it could be around Shea Weber numbers. The Blues and Ryan Miller will talk after the season. Paul Maurice will decide after the season if he wants to return as the Jets head coach.

Morning Rumors: Downie, Hemsky, Jagr, Timonen, Brodeur and Outdoor Games

  • Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News: Flyers pending UFA Steve Downie will have to use the next five weeks to determine if he fits with the Flyers, if they’ll want to re-sign him and how much money he’ll make. Adam Hall is the Flyers only other pending UFA forward.
  • Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: Recently acquired Ales Hemsky isn’t thinking about if he’ll re-sign with the Senators or not.

    “It’s not even worth it to talk about it right now,” Hemsky said Monday morning. “I just focus for the game and try to help this team make the playoffs. What I will do after, I’ll see.”

  • Rich Chere: Devils Jaromir Jagr said that they are his first choice for next year, but there haven’t been any talks yet.
  • Dave Isaac: Kimmo Timonen said he’ll consider retirement again this summer. Sounded like playing next year is a possibility. Sam Carchidi: Timonen added that he’s been hanging around as he wants to get his name on the Stanley Cup.
  • Sam Carchidi: There is talk that Martin Brodeur wants to play another year and that the Wild could be a destination for him.
  • The Fourth Period: The Denver post is reporting that Avalanche could be hosting an outdoor game at Coors Field next season. TFPs David Pagnotta has reported that the NHL plans on hosting four outdoor games next year. The Bruins are expected to get a game at Gillette Stadium either next year or the following year. The Jets are expected to get a game in the next year or two.

Morning Rumors: Canucks, Penguins, Bruins, Devils, Lightning, Ducks, Oilers, Wings, Jackets and Coyotes

  • Josh Rimer: Hearing that the Canucks will have a fire sale at the draft with Ryan Kesler, Alex Edler and Kevin Bieksa likely to go. What does this mean to the Sedins? Will ownership let GM Mike Gillis do the rebuild? What about coach John Tortorella?
  • Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: After seeing how successful it was to have three quality centers in Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal during the playoff runs from 2007 to 2009, it was one of the reasons GM Ray Shero was targeting Ryan Kesler. With not a lot of salary cap room left and lots of injuries, the Penguins had some holes to fill at the deadline: top-line winger, third line scoring and defensive depth. The Penguins could still look to add Kesler. If they are able to land Kesler, their top three centers would take up $23.3 million in cap space, about 34.3 percent.
  • James Murphy of XN Sports: There is speculation within NHL management and scouting that Canucks ownership may have nixed two potential trades at the deadline. The Canucks were close to trading Ryan Kesler to the Penguins for a package that included Brandon Sutter, Derrick Pouliot and a draft pick. Ownership still thinks they are a playoff team, and may have told GM Mike Gillis to take him off the trade market. Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reported last week that the Canucks may have had a deal in place to send Alex Eder to the Bruins for a package that included Matt Barkowski and Ryan Spooner or Alexander Khokhlachev. The deal may have been pulled as the Kesler trade did not happen.The Devils tried to get Brian Gionta from the Canadiens at the deadline. Sources saying that the Devils offered a prospect and a second round pick, but where told he wasn’t available.
  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Recently acquired Thomas Vanek may not re-sign with the Canadiens as signs pointing to him signing with Minnesota. Nobody should be surprised if the Lightning were able to re-sign Ryan Callahan to a five year deal at $25 million. There is no state income tax in Florida, great weather and less pressure.

    “Ryan can take a test-drive there and vice versa,” said his agent Steve Bartlett, who says Tampa general manager Steve Yzerman is taking it low-key. “There’s no gun to anybody’s head. I love that attitude.” Bartlett concedes that the lack of state income tax is a carrot. “You can take 10-per-cent less in Florida than New York and have it be the same amount of money.”

  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Matheson can see the Ducks going after Ryan Kesler after the season. The Ducks could offer a combination of Jakob Silfverberg, Devante Smith-Pelly or Emerson Etem, Sami Vatanen or Luca Sbisa and a first round pick.Matheson thinks the Oilers should try to sign Kings pending UFA Matt Greene this summer.

    The Red Wings want to re-sign newly acquired David Legwand.

    Matheson can see the Blue Jackets looking to add Matt Moulson this offseason to replace Marian Gaborik.

    The Coyotes looked at added Ales Hemsky at the deadline to play with Martin Hanzal and Radim Vrbata. Hemsky could re-sign with the Senators, but the Coyotes will likely be interested in him as well.

  • Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News: Pat LaFontaine talks a little, but didn’t speak about his exit from the team 3 1/2 months after he was brought in. There are questions if he was fired, if he resigned or a combination of both.  He wouldn’t even acknowledge if he signed a confidentiality agreement with the team.
