NHL Rumors VIII: Subban, Devils, Gionta, Callahan, Vanek and Alfredsson

  • Andy Strickland: P.K. Subban is looking for a bigger contract than the Blues gave Alex Pietrangelo, seven years and $45.5 million.
  • Jason Gregor: If P.K. Subban was only asking for $6.5 million, the Canadiens would have already signed him. Source said a couple weeks ago that Subban’s camp asked for over $8 million a season.
  • Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said that Bryce Salvador is “100 percent” recovered from his labrum team in his right hip. On Ryane Clowe who suffered another concussion at the end of March, “fine with the knowledge we know.” Lamoriello said he’d like to re-sign Mark Fayne, Ryan Carter, Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier.Brian Gionta’s agent, Steve Bartlett:

    “We’re just kind of in discussions and the next probably few days will be critical to see (what happens),” Bartlett said. “We just kind of got serious about it in the last day or two, so we’ll kind of see what kind of progress we make on that one and whether he becomes a July 1 guy.”

    Bartlett on talks with the Lightning regarding Ryan Callahan:

    “Whether or not it gets done, it’s really hard to say for me,” Bartlett said. “I think that one could tip either way.”

    Bartlett on pending UFA Thomas Vanek:

    “He went through three teams in order to stick to that position and I don’t think that’s changing,” Bartlett said. “I think he’s been pretty firm on that for the last year and is going to stick by that. Nothing is going to change between now and July 1on on him, I don’t think.”

  • The Fourth Period: The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Red Wings want to bring back Daniel Alredsson if he wants to play next year. They are interested in re-signing both Jonas Gustavsson and Dan Cleary.

Sens should look at Semin, but love to play with Pens … Sharks clauses … What’s Oshie worth … Stastny for Ryan?

  • Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators are about $5 million below the salary floor, and Brennan suggests they should make Alexander Semin an offer, but only if it’s a 1 year deal. Shane Doan may be a nicer catch, but many teams will be after him if he becomes available. The Devils and Red Wings have been said to be interested in Semin.
  • Mike Morreale via twitter: Alexander Semin’s agent, Mark Gandler, said his “priority remains NHL.” Josh Cooper via twitter: The longer the wait for Semin, the price drops, which may interest more teams. Josh Yohe via twitter: Gandler: “No question, playing in Pittsburgh would be great. Alex would love to play with either Malkin or Crosby.”
  • David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News: Pollak reminds people when rumor-mongering that Patrick Marleau and Marty Havlat have no-movement clauses, and Dan Boyle has a modified no-trade clause. Boyle can rule out 8 teams, but he’s not been asked for a list.
  • St. Louis Post Dispatch: If Perron is worth a 4 year, $15.25 million deal, what is T.J. Oshie worth? Jeremy Rutherford thinks about $4.25 million per season. Dan O’Neill thinks in the $3.5-4 million range. Jeff Gordon says more than Perron. Tom Timmermann thinks a 4 year deal with similar numbers to Perron.
  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: From a poll done on Mile High Hockey, Avs fans are thinking they should trade a player like Paul Stastny for Bobby Ryan. The Avs could use a left winger after the departure of Peter Mueller. P.A. Parenteau is more comfortable on the right side. Dater doesn’t think they are ready to move Stastny yet. If they were offering Anaheim Stastny for Ryan, Dater thinks a deal may have been done already. The Ducks need a center, and could handle his $6.6 million cap hit. The Avs do have 2 other good centers in Matt Duchene and Ryan O’Reilly, so if Stastny does stay, one of them will have to be a 3rd line center.
  • Darren Dreger via twitter: The Rangers are still very interested in Rick Nash, but they aren’t going to wait forever. They are looking at other options as well.

Changes to Revenue Sharing coming? Caps to play in Russia … Possible returns tonight: Selanne, Johnson, Pietrangelo and Ehrhoff

  • Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: Chris Osgood was originally penciled in to start tonight in Chicago, but a team captain talked Mike Babcock into having him start Osgood on Sunday at home so he could possibly get his 400th win at home.
  • Jake Leonard of the SF Chronicle: Potential suitors for Evgeni Nabokov could be: Philadelphia Flyers, Ottawa Senators, Washington Capitals, Tampa Bay Lightning, Colorado Avalanche and the Dallas Stars.
  • Helene Elliott via twitter: Matt Green has headed back to LA to get his head looked at. Willie Mitchell is headed to Nashville to see a doctor about a lower body injury.
  • Eric Stephens of the OC Register: After missing the last 4 games with a groin injury, Teemu Selanne is set to re-join his Ducks teammates against the Hurricanes tonight.
  • Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun: Christian Ehrhoff practiced with Canucks teammates yesterday for the first time since December 8th when he suffered a head injury. It was initially thought to be a concussion but turned out to be a vertigo issue.
  • Mike Ziesberger of the Toronto Sun: There’s a chance that Nazem Kadri will be a healthy scratch tonight versus the Canucks. He was practicing with the 4th line yesterday.

    “I need to understand that chipping the puck in is not such a bad thing. The little turnovers at their blue line and at our blue line are things I need to change.

    “I’ll get it right. I’ll get my head around it. It caught me off-guard a bit. I’ve been going hard and I think things have been going pretty good but I guess there are things I need to improve.”

  • Chris Botta of the NY Times: The way the league’s revenue sharing works with lower-profile teams could change in the next C.B.A. according to Deputy Commish Bill Daily. In the current C.B.A., teams with TV market of over $2.5 million wouldn’t qualify for revenue sharing, which would include Anaheim, NY Islanders, and NJ Devils.
