Trade Hits: Small deal, Canadiens, Edler, Greening and Wild

  • Anthony SanFilippo: The Flyers traded AHL defenseman Danny Syvret to the Rangers for Kris Newbury.
  • The Fourth Period: The Canadiens have been involved in trade talks lately. One of which was trying to move into the top 10 of Sunday’s draft.

    “The price was big, and we were willing to pay, but it didn’t work,” Habs GM Marc Bergevin told reporters towards the conclusion the Draft.

    The Canadiens talked to the Canucks about Alex Edler. Sources say that they also talked to the Blues about David Perron and the Ducks about Bobby Ryan. The also received some calls on Tomas Plekanec.

  • Pierre LeBrun: Canucks Alex Edler’s no-trade clause has kicked in.
  • Bruce Garrioch: Garrioch doesn’t think there is anything to the rumors of Colin Greening going to the Predators. Sides talked contract extension on Sunday.
  • Michael Russo of the Star Tribune: Wild GM Chuck Fletcher is still working the trade market. Devin Setoguchi and his $3 million cap hit could be on the move. He’ll be a free agent after next season. Tom Gilbert could be bought out, eliminating his $4 million cap hit and only costing $1 million over the next two year.

  • Pierre LeBrun via twitter: Blackhawks Duncan Keith waived his right for the in-person hearing. Will do over the phone at 2 PM EST.
  • Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter: Vladimir Tarasenko’s Russian agent told SovSport that Tarasenko “is ready for the NHL…both physically and mentally.” … But Chesnokov wonders if he’ll come over.
  • AP in the Sporting News: NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said they are ready to start CBA talks:

    “That’s something that we’re relying on the union for right now,” Bettman said of the timing on talks. “We’ve been ready to go for months but there’s a new executive director and he’s getting up to speed, meeting with his constituents and when the union’s ready, then we’ll start.”

    NHLPA spokesman Jonathan Weatherdon from an email statement:

    “At our request, the NHL recently supplied the NHLPA with some initial financial information that we are currently reviewing,” Weatherdon said. “While we do not have a set date for formal negotiations to begin, we expect negotiations will begin when we have players available to participate in bargaining sessions.”

Carlson, Gagne and Kubina hurt last night … Flyers roster notes … Dallas Stars sale progressing

  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Capitals rookie defenseman John Carlson collided with Nate Thompson late in the 2nd period. He lasted about 36 seconds on 2 very short shifts in the 3rd before leaving for good. He’ll be listed as day-to-day, and Bruce Boudreau is hoping he’ll be able to go on Sunday.
  • Joe Smith of the St. Petersburg Times: Lightning forward Simon Gagne likely suffered a concussion in the 1st period after his head slammed against the ice after a Scott Hannon hit. Gagne has a history of concussions. Defenseman Pavel Kubina also left the game. His head banged off the glass after taking a Jason Chimera hit, who received a roughing penalty.
  • Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: The Flyers will likely go with 6 defense in Game 1 (had been going with 7 due to the uncertainty of Chris Pronger’s hand). Defenseman Danny Syvret will likely be a healthy scratch. Jody Shelley or rookie Zac Rinaldo will be on the 4th line. Jeff Carter is doubtful for the first 2 games of the series. Andreas Nodl practiced but won’t go in Game 1. Sergei Bobrovsky will backup Brian Boucher as Michael Leighton still has a sore back.
  • George Richards of the Miami Herald: The Panthers have had some contract discussions with 2010 1st round draft pick, Erik Gudbranson, “but there’s no deadline. We don’t have to have him signed right now. There are more pressing issues.” They’ve also had one “general” discussion with Tomas Vokoun people, so there is chance that he may not leave by free agency.
  • Tim Sassone of the Daily Herald: There is a small group of Blackhawk fans who think they should trade Patrick Kane. (um…okay…yeah….do these people know anything about hockey? This makes absolutely no sense and isn’t going to happen. It doesn’t deserve to be even posted, but I did it anyways as it’s pretty funny.)
  • Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: Two sources confirmed that Tom Gaglardi is in the 30-day negotiation window to purchase the Dallas Stars. Gaglardi’s offer is “significantly” better than the other offers. If everything goes to plan, the deal could be done by June. This could be helpful in giving the Stars an opportunity to have some serious negotiations with Brad Richards (though Richards may want to test the free agent market anyways). It would also allow them to get their new head coach in place. Possible candidates are Texas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan or Canadiens assistand coach Kirk Muller (in yesterday’s post and in that article we/they said that Kirk Muller will likely get the job).

  • Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly: Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen has been battling a sore left hip for weeks. The team called up Danny Syvret just in case. Timonen added, “It’s not something that is going to go away in a week and it’s going to take a couple of weeks – at least. It’s going to be there for a while, but hopefully not longer than that.”
