Morning Hits: Concussion lawsuit, Schneider, Ericsson, Dudley, Klesla, Recalls and Flip Hit

  • Chris Johnston of SportsNet: The concussion lawsuit has went from the first 10 plaintiffs to up to over 200 now, with the number likely to continue to grow.

    The lawsuit alleges that the NHL failed to do enough to protect and educate its players from the dangers of head injuries and, according to Owens, seeks to find out the answer to three important questions: What did the NHL know about concussions and the effects of subconcussive hits? When did it know it? And what did it tell the players?

  • Eric Macramalla: “The 200 or so NHL players were not magically added to lawsuit after news broke of NHL lawsuit; they likely signed retainer letters ahead of time; in class action litigation only plaintiffs that represent the class need to be identified at the start. Full list of plaintiff names will provided at a later date.”
  • Allan Walsh: “Many people are under the misperception that former players suing the NHL over long term effects of concussions making a pure money grab. In many instances, former players ultimately seeking costs of medical expenses, cost of medication and long term care.”
  • Tom Gulitti: Devils Cory Schneider on not playing: ”It’s Groundhog Day for me. I can’t seem to escape it.”
  • Helene St. James: The Red Wings sign Jonathan Ericsson to a six-year contract extension worth $25.5 million, a $4.25 million cap hit.
  • Darren Dreger: The Canadiens give Rick Dudley a more lucrative deal to remain with the team. The Sabres were asking for permission to speak with Dudley about their vacant GM spot. L.A. Lariviere: Dudley had one more year on his deal. Extension doesn’t kick in until after next season.
  • Sarah McLellan: Coyotes Rostislav Klesla clears waivers. McLellan of the Arizona Republic: Klesla was assigned to the AHL.

    “It’s more of him getting more minutes and playing more games, get his quickness and pace and confidence back where it needs to be, and then he’ll be back playing for us,” General Manager Don Maloney said. “Whether that’s a weekend or a week or two weeks or the rest of the year, I can’t say right now. So that’s the plan. We think he can help us at some point here, but we need to be better and he needs to be better.”

  • Ryan Rishaug: Matt D’Agostini was claimed by the Sabres.
  • Corey Pronman: The Coyotes have recalled Chris Brown and Connor Murphy from the AHL.
  • Eric Stephens: The Ducks have sent Emerson Etem and Devante Smith-Pelly to the AHL.
  • Igor Eronko: Chris Bourque’s contract with the Kazan of the KHL was terminated, and he’s rumored to be signing with Biel of the Swiss league.

Moore filed the suit in 2006, and is looking for $38 million.

An appeal to keep the details of the agreement quiet was lost. Deal was to share the costs if they lost the case.

Morning Rumors: Vanek, Chaisson, Depres, Ducks, Penguins, Gardiner, Ryan, Glencross and the Flyers

  • Jim Matheson: Lots of people think that Thomas Vanek may take a pay-cut and sign with the Wild in the summer. He went to school in Minnesota and is good friends with Jason Pominville.

    Nathan MacKinnon is living J.S. Giguere’s basement.

    The Bruins tried to get Alex Chaisson included in the Loui Eriksson-Tyler Seguin trade. The Stars sent Rielly Smith and Matt Fraser instead.

    With the strong play of Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta, Simon Despres may now be used as trade bait.

    The Ducks need a defenseman with Sheldon Souray and Luca Sbisa out. The Leafs are looking to move John-Michael Liles, the Flyers have Andrej Meszros and the Penguins have Despres.

    The Penguins will look for a backup goalie.

  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC: Filip Kuba is still hoping to get an NHL deal.

    Mark Messier will be re-joining that Oilers as a consultant.

    Before Cory Schneider was sent to the Devils, one rumored deal was to the Oilers for their 1st and 2nd round picks, as well as Martin Marincin. Big asking price but would be trading a goalie within their division.

    There has been some talk between the Maple Leafs and some teams about Jake Gardiner. If the Leafs are going to consider trading Gardiner, it would be for a young asset or assets. Friedman speculates that teams like the Stars, Panthers and Wild might be interested. Gardiner was impressive during the Boston series last year, but some scouts still have questions.

    Word is the Ducks received four serious offers for Bobby Ryan. A couple reasons as to why he landed in Ottawa are that the Senators didn’t need to send salary back and that the Ducks wanted a 1st round pick included.

    If Ilya Bryzgalov signed in the KHL, he’d have to clear waivers if he returned to the NHL.

  • Frank Seravlli of the Philadelphia Daily News: The Flyers have been “sniffing around” but may have trouble finding a partner this early in the season. The Flyers have been looking at Curtis Glencross. The Flames are desperate for someone to play with Mark Giordano, and the Flyers have a bunch of high-priced defensemen. Glencross has a no-trade clause. The Flyers scouted the Flames last week, Ron Hextall (assistant GM) and Chris Pryor (director of scouting) attended. Dave Brown (head pro scout) watched the Flames in Columbus. The Flames scouted the Flyers home opener last week. The Flyers also had a scout at the Flames home opener. The Flames had a scout watching the Flyers and Hurricanes. The Flyers may also be interested in Sven Baertschi.
  • Bob McKenzie on NHL Live: Flyers coaching change, Holmgren’s future and the spin-o-rama.
