Injury Notes: Hartnell, Perry, Fasth, Martinez and Rinne

  • Sam Carchidi: A CT scan on Flyers Scott Hartnell’s foot revealed no damage. He will be in the lineup today.
  • Eric Stephens: Ducks Corey Perry had a maintenance day yesterday. Viktor Fasth has been on the ice wearing pads. He hasn’t taken shots yet though.
  • Jon Rosen: Kings defenseman Alec Martinez is out with a hyperextended elbow after a collision with Andrew Cogliano, Jonathan Quick and the net on Saturday.
  • Ryan B. Miller: Predators Paul Fenton on Center Ice Radio show on Pekka Rinne: “Fenton was asked about Pekka possibly coming down to Milwaukee on a conditioning assignment: We’ve done our homework on him. He’ll still be able to have a conditioning stint at some particular time. It could be split into a week at a time so that he could come down and maybe finish before the Olympic break and then just before the Olympic break is over, he could come down. We’ve looked into it, but again, we’re not getting ahead of ourselves here. Pekka is feeling really good. I watch him work out regularly in the gym, but not on the ice.

Free Agent and Rumor Hits: Kessel, Liles, Teams over the cap, Stepan, Boyle, Gagne and White

  • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Simmons thinks Phil Kessel could fall between Corey Perry’s $8.6 million and Ryan Getzlaf’s $8.2 million. Dion Phaneuf’s new contract could be more complicated. Simmons wonders if the Flames would be interested in John-Michael Liles. Teams entering training camp over the salary cap: Red Wings, Flyers, Bruins, Sharks, Kings and Penguins.
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: The Rangers and Derek Stepan are believed to be apart by $1 million over two years. Stepan is thought to be looking for $7 million on a two-year deal, with the Rangers thought to be offering just under $6 million. The Rangers have between $3 and $3.5 million in salary cap space, depending on who earns the final roster spot. Ryan Callahan’s and Carl Hagelin’s injuries could lead to ‘AHL’ replacements, which would increase the cap space. Brian Boyle is entering the final year of his deal. He carries a $1.7 million cap hit and could become available if the Rangers want to make some moves.
  • Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: Simon Gagne isn’t too happy with Flyers GM Paul Holmgren as he felt he was misled about getting a deal with the Flyers.

    “All summer, the Philadelphia Flyers kept hinting that they wanted to offer me a new contract, and I even told Robert Sauve, my agent, not to negotiate with other teams,” Gagne told LaPresse, a French-language daily in Montreal. “We trusted them. We put all our eggs in one basket and we got caught. We never thought we’d be stuck in this situation at this time of the year.”

  • Gary Lawless: Lawless likes defenseman Ian White’s chances of making the Jets. They only have about $2 million in cap space. He’ll likely have to take a bit more than $1 million.

Early Lines and Pairings: Sabres, Senators, Red Wings, Ducks, Blackhawks and Bruins

  • Mike Harrington: The Sabres will start camp with Tyler Myers playing with Christian Ehrhoff and not Henrik TallinderMark Pysyk will play with Tallinder.
  • Ian Mendes: Senators coach Paul MacLean said that Clarke MacArthur will start on a line with Kyle Turris. Mark Stone, Cory Conacher and Mike Hoffman will be considered for the other wing.
  • Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: Early Red Wings lines:  Henrik Zetterberg – Pavel Datsyuk – Justin Abdelkader,  Mikael Samuelsson – Luke Glendening – Jordin Tootoo, Johan Franzen – Stephen Weiss – Daniel Alfredsson, Drew Miller – Cory Emmerton – Patrick Eaves, Anthony Mantha – Andreas Athanisiou – Teemu Pulkkinen, Tyler Bertuzzi. Early Red Wings defensive pairings: Danny DeKeyser-Jakub Kindl, Brian Lashoff – Nathan Paetsch (PTO), Niklas Kronwall-Jonathan Ericsson, Ryan Oullet – Brennan Evans.
  • Eric Stephens: Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said that he’ll start Dustin Penner with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. He likes the pairings of Andrew Cogliano and Saku Koivu, and Nick Bonino with Teemu Selanne.
  • Mark Lazerus: Have to think Brandon Saad is the front-runner over Brandon Pirri for the Blackhawks second line center.
  • Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe: The Bruins third line could be a made up from anyone of Chris Kelly, Carl Soderberg, Jordan Caron, Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser, Craig Cunningham, Ryan Spooner and Jared Knight.

    “I think ideally we saw the third line that we liked when we won the Cup,” Julien said of 2011. “Not only were they kind of a dependable line, but they were able to give us some scoring. In a real perfect world, you’ve got your top two lines that you’d like to see score on a regular basis. Your third line should be able to give you some secondary scoring and your third line should also be able to give you some secondary grit that your fourth line gives you. To me they’re caught in the middle where they give you a little bit of both. That’s what we’re looking for from that line.”

Corey Perry Re-signs with the Anaheim Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed right winger Corey Perry to an eight year contract extension. Pierre LeBrun is reporting that the eight year deal is for $69 million, a $8.625 million salary cap hit.

Perry was drafted by the Ducks, 28th overall in the first round of the 2003 draft.

We are excited that Corey has committed to us for the next eight years,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “Similar to the case with Ryan Getzlaf, Corey wanted to stay in Anaheim and be part of our organization long term. He is an exceptional player who competes with heart and soul and has won at every level.”

Perry is currently serving a four game suspension. In 25 games this season he’s recorded nine goals and 15 assists for 24 points.

“Staying in Anaheim has always been my first choice,” said Perry. “This is a great place to play, and I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to remain here. I want to thank to the Samuelis and the entire Ducks organization for their belief in me. I’m pleased to have this done so our focus can remain on our ultimate goal – bringing another Stanley Cup to Orange County.”

NHL Rumors: Bozak, Penguins, Iginla, Kings, Bernier, Perry, Roy and Streit

  • Darren Dreger via twitter: The Maple Leafs are still in the market for a big 2nd or 3rd line center and an upgrade on the blueline. The Leafs are not in a rush to sign or trade Tyler Bozak as they need him for a playoff push. It’s unlikely that Bozak would be able to get 1st line money out of the Leafs, and will  likely be a UFA in July.
  • Rob Rossi via twitter: According to Penguins GM Ray Shero teams are only “touching base to see what the needs are.”

    “As a manager, all you can do is keep touch with teams, continue to monitor your own team and see what needs may be,” Shero said.

    The Penguins would like to add depth to their blueline and forwards. A defensive minded top-four blueliner and a scoring winger for their 3rd or 4th line. Adding someone that could play on the PK would be nice. They will be interested in Jarome Iginla, but he may not fill a top-six role with the Pens.

  • Eric Duhatschuk of the Globe and Mail: Duhatschuk thinks it doesn’t make sense for the Kings to trade Jonathan Bernier to the Flames for Jarome Iginla, siting Jonathan Quick’s “erratic season.”  Duhatschuk thinks that the Red Wings and Maple Leafs are possible destinations for Corey Perry if he wants to move closer to home. The Wings have the money to spend. The Stars are likely to move Derek Roy if they don’t get far with contract negotiations. If he is moved, he could end up in Vancouver.
  • Katie Strang via twitter: Multiple sources have said that the Islanders and defenseman Mark Streit’s agent have been having contract negotiations. Talks are in the preliminary stages. Many teams will be calling the Islanders about him. It is possible that if the Islanders fall out of contention leading up to the deadline, they could look at moving him.

    “For me, the focus right now is on hockey and helping the team,” Streit said. “Especially for me as captain, I don’t want to have any distractions. I just want to play, win hockey games, and play as good as possible.”

NHL Rumors: Rangers and Gaborik, Senators, Johnson, Stars, Perry, Kings, Iginla, Bernier and the Canucks

  • Andrew Gross of The Record: There are whispers that the Rangers could be gauging the interest for winger Marian Gaborik. It may not be until the offseason or until they think a new deal is implausible. His five year, $37.5 million contract expires after next season. There seems to be a growing disconnect between coach John Tortorella and Gaborik. Gaborik has been dropped to the third line on occasion, and has been switched to left wing this year.
  • Bruce Garrioch via twitter: After acquiring Matt Kassian earlier this week, Senators GM Bryan Murray won’t be rushing to make any trades.

    “It depends on how the team plays and the needs at the time,” said Murray. “We’ve got a number of bodies that hopefully are coming back in the near future.

    “We’ll just have to wait to see how it plays out and if, and what, we can down around the trade deadline with the personnel that we have.”

  • Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: (mailbag) Reader asks about the Stars possibly looking at Jack Johnson for Trevor Daly and a prospect deal. Heika’s magic eight-ball says to “Ask again later.” Heika notes that Johnson is injury prone and Daly hasn’t been. The Blue Jackets may not make Johnson available. Heika thinks most teams will pass on Panthers Brian Campbell due to his three years remaining at $7.1 million.
  • Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: Don’t think for minute that the Ducks will trade Corey Perry in the next month. Brennan thinks it makes sense for the Senators to go after him in the offseason. He could line up with one of best playmakers in Jason Spezza and one of the most dynamic defenseman in Erik Karlsson. They have the cap space.
  • Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: LeBrun says to watch the Kings if and when the Jarome Iginla sweepstakes begin. The Bruins and Penguins are interested, but the Kings have the right mix and could dangle Jonathan Bernier. LeBrun thinks the Kings may want to get a pick as well with Iginla for a possible future franchise goalie. The Red Wings could be interested in Iginla as well.Canucks GM Mike Gillis has been working the phones the last 7 to 10 days. They desperately want to find help up the middle. They may have been in the running for Stephen Weiss before he got hurt. They’ve checked in with the Sabres regarding Steve Ott. It doesn’t look like the Sabres are interested in moving him at this point.

    The Rangers may not be shopping Marian Gaborik, but he is available if he brings them some of their targets at the deadline. The Rangers are looking for a right handed top-four defenseman and a couple bottom-six grinding type forwards.

Video: Corey Perry Could be Getting a Call from Mr. Shanahan

UPDATE: Bob McKenzie via twitter: Perry will have a phone hearing today. Suspension would be 5 games or less.

Brian Lawton via twitter: I would be surprised if @AnaheimDucks Perry gets any more than a fine. Unfortunate play but not dirty. @mnwild Zucker looks back at pass. This is a rookie mistake as you can see Perry finishes his check but does not leave his feet or target Zuckers head. There is a reason you don’t see a lot of players look back over there shoulder to follow a pass up the wall leaving attacking angle blind!”

Anaheim Ducks winger Corey Perry will be having a discussion with Mr. Shanahan about his hit on Minnesota Wild Jason Zucker.

Perry was assessed a 5 minute major for interference and a game misconduct.

Do you think Perry should be suspended? If so,how many games do you think he should get?

The Ryan Getzlaf Fallout: Perry and UFA Centers

  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC: Ryan Getzlaf signed an eight year, $66 million deal with the Ducks last week. They were hoping to get him signed to salary cap hit of $7.5 million, but there was no way that they could let both Getzlaf and Corey Perry approach the trade deadline without deals. The Ducks now have four options regarding Perry.

    1. Sign him: The Ducks have said they want to sign him to an extension, but it’s hard to tell how negotiations have gone. The Ducks were believed to be willing to go long-term before the lockout, but wouldn’t do any ‘back-diving’ deals. It’s not known how much Perry wants to stay in Anaheim. It’s thought that he may want to play closer to Ontario. The Ducks 18-3-3 record may make the decision a little harder. Friedman thinks the Ducks should put forth their best offer in the next couple weeks and see what happens. It could be eight years and between $72 and $80 million.

    2. Trade him: A brutual choice. Unless you are able to getting a bidding war, they won’t get a lot for him. If they don’t trade him, they could lose him for nothing like what happened with Justin Schultz. It’s a tough decision since they are Stanley Cup contender.

    3. Go for it: They are a contender, so keep him and take a run at the Cup. You are not in position to challenge every year. The Devils did it last year with Zach Parise and made it to the finals. Ryan Suter helped the Predators get into the second round. It didn’t work out will for Brad Richards and the Dallas Stars though.

    4. Play ball together: The Ducks have the edge as they can sign him to an eight your deal, while other teams could only go seven years if he hit the open market. Players can talk with teams during a specified time period before free agency begins. He may not like what he hears and decides to re-sign with the Ducks. Or the Ducks could say: ”Look, is it possible you’d tell us the two or three teams you’re interested in, so we can pit them against each other and try to make a trade? In exchange, you get an extra $9-10 million.” Problem is, teams may not trade much since they could sign and not give up anything.

  • Craig Custance of ESPN: Custance looks at how Getzlaf’s deal impacts the trade market. Teams covet centers as it’s tough to win without having two good ones. Getzlaf would have been the top center that could have been available at the deadline had he not signed the contract extension. Custance lists top-6 unrestricted centers that could be available leading up to the trade deadline.

    1. Mike Ribeiro (WSH): With the Capitals stuck in a hole this season, GM George McPhee could move Ribeiro for a first round pick and a prospect. The Capitals would then need to find a top-6 center for next season. There are concerns about signing Ribeiro to a long-term deal since he is 33-years old. He has 28 points in 24 games but is at 42.6 percent in faceoffs.

    2. Derek Roy (DAL): The Stars and Roy have been discussing a long-term deal. If they can’t get a deal done, the Stars can’t afford to let him go for nothing.

    3. Stephen Weiss (FLA): Weiss is out for the season after wrist surgery, but someone may want to acquire so they have a longer time period to work out an extension. It would also allow them to go eight years and not seven.

    4. Valtteri Filppula (DET): The Red Wings may not be willing to move Filppula, especially in the middle of a playoff run. He plays more on the wing in Detroit, but he has the skill to be a second line center on a good team. He’s the youngest of this group at 28. He could be the piece to get the Red Wings a top four defenseman that they are looking for. He is not easily replaced though, especially if Datsyk heads back to Russia after his contract expires in 2014.

NHL Rumors: Malkin, Smid, Hemsky, Horcoff, Blackhawks, Capitals, Red Wings, Panthers, Lightning, Leafs, Devils and Scouting LA-CAL

  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC: The Penguins can talk to Evgeni Malkin about a contract extension, but can’t re-sign him until the summer. Same goes for the Blackhawks and Jonathan Toews. There hasn’t seemed to be much conversation between the Oilers and soon to be UFA Ladislav Smid. Ales Hemsky’s name will likely come up again this year in trade rumors. Friedman wonders if the Oilers would consider moving Shawn Horcoff.
  • The Fourth Period: The Blackhawks would like to add a 2nd or 3rd line center, and their options are growing. Though it’s unlikely he’ll be dealt, the Blackhawks have shown interest in Blue Jackets Derick Brassard. GM Stan Bowman could look at Capitals Mike Ribeiro, who will be a UFA at the end of the season. The Hawks could also look to add a depth defenseman for their 3rd pairing.
  • The Fourth Period: Red Wings GM Ken Holland has been trying to bring in an impact player for awhile. He’s looked at Flames Jay Bouwmeester and Coyotes Keith Yandle, but the asking price has been too high. The Wings could look at Sabres Robyn Regehr and Oilers Ladislav Smid. Holland wouldn’t overpay for Ducks Corey Perry as a rental, but may look at Sabres Drew Stafford or someone from the Flames.
  • Jeff Gordon of the Post Dispatch: The Panthers are looking to move salary, and the Capitals and Lightning are falling out of the playoff race. The Blue Jackets are in rebuild mode, and the Flames could be following suit. The Blues are looking for a top-four defenseman, but there aren’t many options at the moment. Trade targets for teams that might be interested in adding salary are: Corey Perry, Roberto Luongo, Mike Ribeiro, Jarome Iginla, Brandon Dubinsky, Ryane Clowe, Kris Versteeg, Clarke MacArthur, Jack Johnson, Brian Campbell, Jay Bouwmeester, Jussi Jokinen, Mike Komisarek, Tyler Bozak and Keith Ballard.
  • Pierre LeBrun via twitter: Lightning GM Steve Yzerman isn’t giving up on the season just yet. He’s been working the phones.

    “To sit here and say, ‘I’m going to do something big,’ there’s nothing big that can be done at this time,” Yzerman said. “It’s not like we just sit here and do nothing all day. You talk to people, you see if there’s anything that makes sense. For a lot of reasons it’s difficult to find a fit, to find the right players, the right salaries to make a trade. You don’t just do something to do it.”

    If Yzerman is to make a deal, look for it to be a traditional hockey deal and not a move for a rental.

    “Rental players cost you draft picks or young players, we’re not interested in that,” Yzerman said. “That’s why we signed free agents in the summer, to fill those places. If there’s a trade that makes sense where a team has a need and we have a need, then it would be addressed that way.”

    The Panthers will listen to offers for Kris Versteeg and Tomas Fleischmann. Fleischmann has two years left at $4.5 million per season and he has a modified no-trade clause. Versteeg has three years left with a cap hit of $4.4 million, but salaries of $4.6 and 4.7 million.

  • Bill Watters via twitter: Watters wonders if it’s time to move Phil Kessel. He’s a UFA after next season and this trade deadline may be the ideal time to move him. You’re not going to build a team around him so you do it.
  • Bill Watters via twitter: Why are people on Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis to trade John-Michael Liles and Mike Komisarek? He couldn’t give them away due to their lackluster play and bad contracts.
  • Vicki Hall via twitter: Scouting the Kings – Flames game: Rangers, 2 from Boston, Sabres, Penguins, Lightning, Canucks, Blues, Ducks, Predators and Avalanche.
