Injury notes: Landeskog, Michalek, Skinner, Booth, Dubinsky, Wisniewski, Gallagher, Crawford, Powe and Daley.

  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: Dater wonders if it would be better for the Avalanche to shut Gabriel Landeskog down for the season due to his concussion. Coming back too early can put players at risk for a more serious concussion if they get another one when not fully healed. Landeskog skated by himself on Friday, the first time since suffering a concussion on January 26th.
  • Ian Mendes via twitter: It’s not likely that Milan Michalek will play today or on Tuesday. He should have his knee examined by doctors again early this week.
  • Chip Alexander via twitter: Hurricanes Jeff Skinner will not play in Montreal due to an upper-body injury. Michael Smith of Skinner will be evaluated when they return home on Tuesday. Defensemen Joni Pitkanen and Tim Gleason didn’t practice yesterday and won’t be travelling to Montreal. They are day-to-day with lower-body injuries.
  • Elliott Pap via twitter: Canucks winger David Booth is close to returning and expects to be back in the lineup on their upcoming road trip. Booth on when he might play: ”Chicago is a possibility in my mind. Two days is a lot. We’ll see how it feels.”
  • Shawn Mitchell via twitter: Blue Jackets Brandon Dubinsky won’t play today. Defenseman James Wisnieski is joining teammates in Anaheim. Artem Anisimov and Cam Atkinson haven’t been ruled out against the Ducks.
  • Mark Lazerus via twitter: Blackhawks Corey Crawford is “still progressing” according to coach Joel Quenneville and it’s not expected to be a long-term issue.

Gagne will waive his no-trade clause … Kaberle wouldn’t happen until next week … Ducks-Ryan talks “done for a while”

Anthony Sanfilippo of the Delaware County Daily Times: Simon Gagne has agreed to waive his no trade clause. The Flyers don’t have a deal in place for Gagne though. The Flyers would like to move Gagne to free up some cap space to re-sign Darroll Powe and Dan Carcillo, and take a run at a higher priced goalie. Marty Turco really wants to go to Philly. The LA Kings could be interested in Gagne. Rumors are that it could involve several players, but is most likely to involve a player and draft picks. James van Riemsdyk name has also been mentioned.

Helene Elliott of the LA Times: LA Kings GM Dean Lombardi continues to work on “a number of different scenarios”. Ilya Kovalchuk is of course the big one, but he’s rumored to be getting a 10 year, $100 million offer from the Islanders, which may be too big for the Kings to match. The Isles are $9 million under salary for and are looking to build a new arena. There are also reports that the Kings may be interested in Gagne, though that would depend on if they land Kovalchuk.

Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun: Any Tomas Kaberle deal not likely to happen until next week due to the long weekend. Burke doesn’t expect much action on free agents this weekend as well. He won’t make a pitch for Kovalchuk ‘unless the bottom right out of the market’. Burke had agents for 2 ex-Leafs calling him.

Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun: The Anaheim Ducks are “done for a while” according to GM Bob Murray in regards to their talks with RFA Bobby Ryan. Ryan said he didn’t expect to make more money than Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, then he turned down a 5-year, $25 million deal.

Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post: The Washington Capitals may look to fill their 2nd-4th line centers with a player from within the organization. The leading candidates so far would be converted winger Tomas Fleischmann, and inexperienced Mathieu Perrault and Marcus Johansson.

Leafs talking to Afinogenov … Yzerman still shopping … Bieksa receiving interest

David Pagnotta via Twitter: The Stars are still dangling Mike Ribeiro, but nothing is close.

Rob Rossi via Twitter: The Penguins will take the weekend to look at some trade possibilities. They’d like to add a veteran ‘character’ guy who is cheap.

Pierre LeBrun via Twitter: Not saying the Maple Leafs will sign Maxim Afinogenov, but there’s been conversations.

Pierre LeBrun via Twitter: The Oilers won’t be putting Sheldon Souray through re-entry waivers, as they have zero interest in eating half his salary.

Erik Erlendsson via Twitter: Yzerman is still looking for a Dman, and has interest in forwards, only at the right price.

Jason Botchford via Twitter: 10 teams have called about Vancouver’s Kevin Bieksa.

David Pagnotta via Twitter: Willie Mitchell has a couple offers but nothing is close.

Dmitry Chesnokov via Twitter: 2 teams in the Northeast division have an interest in Nik Zherdev.

Pierre LeBrun via Twitter: The Detroit Red Wings are the only team to call Mike Modano so far.

10 teams after Volchenkov? Isles have a big wish list … Coburn could be a tough sign … No progress with Hamhuis

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Anton Volchenkov could have as many as 10 teams checking in with him when the free agent market opens up tomorrow. Likely suitors could be Washington, San Jose, Atlanta, Anaheim, St. Louis, and the NY Rangers. He could get a contract in the $4.5-5 million range.
  • Tim Sassone of the Daily Herald: The Chicago Blackhawks may look at some free agents for their 3rd-4th lines and a cheap, depth defenseman. They need to add some size and toughness, but the most important factor will that they are inexpensive. The ‘Hawks may end up dealing Andrew Ladd, who they’ve sent a qualifying offer too already. Possible defenseman targets could be: Sean O’Donnell, Jay McKee, Brett Lebda, Brett Clark, John Scott, and Garnet Exelby.
  • Chris Botta of NYI Point Blank: The NY Islanders have about $6-8 million to spend to reach the salary cap floor. They’d like to add: a top-4 defenseman, a tough experienced 5th – 6th defenseman, a potential top-6 forward, a reliable-penalty killing bottom-6 forward, and a backup goalie.
  • Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News: The Flyers spent much of yesterday talking with their restricted free agents. Darroll Powe and Dan Carcillo have already been qualified. Braydon Coburn may be a trickier signing. The 25-year old made $1.3 million last season, and put up similar numbers to Kris Letang, who signed a 4 year deal with the Penguins for $3.5 million a season. One concern Dan Hamhuis had when talking to the Flyers wasn’t about money but about his role with the club, minutes he’d get.
  • Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: It doesn’t look like Paul Martin will re-sign with the Devils before tomorrow, and will test free agency. It’s still possible the Martin signs with the Devils.

Coyotes Staying in Phoenix? Sergei Kostitsyn done in Montreal … Flyers free agents

  • Scott Burnside of ESPN: Sources have told ESPN Friday night that the Ice Edge Holdings group and city of Glendale are going to sign a letter of exclusivity on Monday, as they’ve agreed on all points on in a new lease agreement. The memorandum won’t be officially submitted to the city for voting until the city and NHL come to agreement on several points, which will be discussed on Tuesday. The NHL wants the city to cover the operating losses for the team if an owner is not found by next year, which could be in the $20-30 million range. If all goes well, it could still take 4-8 weeks before a deal could be finalized. Check out yesterday’s post on Coyotes situation for some more background on what’s been happening.
  • Bob McKenzie of TSN: Sergei Kostitsyn has worn out his welcome in Montreal. The players, coaches and managment have about had it with him. He’s a skilled player and could help them out now, but he’s got a bad work ethic and a terrible attitude. Players may be wanting to send him away right away, but coaches and managment are trying to keep this distraction to a minimum.
  • Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post: Gormley looks at the Flyers free agent situation this summer. Aaron Asham, Michael Leighton and Lukas Krajicek have all stated they’d like to return, but no word yet from management if there is an interest in bringing them back. Ray Emery isn’t expected to get a contract offer. The Flyers will most likely send qualifying offers to RFAs Daniel Carcillo, Darroll Powe, Braydon Coburn, and Ryan Parent.
  • John Vogl of the Buffalo News: The Buffalo Sabres will be looking for a backup goalie this summer. Patrick Lalime is an option, but I doubt it, they didn’t seem to trust him that much down the stretch to give Miller the time off that he needed. Martin Biron is probably the leading candidate, though they can’t really admit it as he’s still under contract with the Islanders. The Sabres could also go ‘in-house’ with the 21-year old Jhonas Enroth who’s been in the AHL the past 2 seasons.
  • Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News: Kirk Maltby’s final practice/game could be approaching. Currently he plans on training this summer like he’ll be returning, but he’s unsure if it will be with the Red Wings. The 37-year old is a UFA at seasons end, may not get a contract offer from the Wings, and may not see himself in another uniform.
