Cherry predicts 2 month lockout … Devils update … Clarkson had fractured foot … Kane Negotiations … Prospect tourney cancelled

  • Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun: Don Cherry thinks the NHL will be shut down for 2 months,

    “I’m afraid it looks like two months. Everybody’s talking that they’re going to be out two months,” Cherry said after the walk Friday evening. “It’s a lockout, it’s a shame. Everybody’s making money but everybody wants more money, and wouldn’t you? And that’s the way it works. It’s too bad.

    “It’s hard to believe we’re going to miss hockey for two months.”

  • David Giambusso and Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: The Devils nor the NHL would confirm the NY Post report that owner Jeff Vanderbeek had an imminent 2 year deal with the lenders on refinancing a loan. A lockout would further complicate Vanderbeek’s situation,

    “Until you know what the final parameters of the collective bargaining agreement are, it’s pure speculation to engage in any sort of discussion of what the Devils revenues and expenses could be,” said Scott Rosner, a sports business professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. “My sense is that the parties in these negotiations have no idea how things are going to line up.”

    Two people close to the situation were skeptical of the Post report. They did acknowledge that it’s possible that something occurs in the next week, but they have been negotiating similar settlements for over a year with nothing happening.

  • Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free-Press: There may come a time when the Jets and Evander Kane halt negotiations until a new CBA is in place. Both sides aren’t saying anything about the matter. The Jets had put a 6 year, $29 million on the table back in July. Kane’s side is looking for  a Jeff Skinner deal (6 years, $34 million), while the Jets are looking for a Max Pacioretty deal (6 years, $27 million).
  • Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: Devils forward David Clarkson played in the playoffs with a fractured foot that didn’t know about.

    “I had a bad foot at the beginning of the playoffis, and I hurt it again at the end,” Clarkson said yesterday. “Emotions are high during the playoffs and you can play through it, but then you realize you’re still sore a couple of weeks after it’s over. It was a fracture so I just stayed off it and relaxed this summer, if you can call it that. You can call me a sore loser.”

  • Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: The Red Wings have cancelled the annual prospect camp that is held in Traverse City. GM Ken Holland,

    “we had a conference call with all the teams involved. Due to the uncertainty of CBA negotiations and teams having to make commitments for hotel rooms and travel plans — the biggest thing is the hotel rooms. The people Up North needed to know if the rooms would be used or not. So we made the decision to cancel for 2012. We plan to be back next year.”

    The Wings, Sabres, Hurricanes, Blue Jackets, Stars, Wild, Rangers and Blues were to take part in the tournament.

GMs on the hotseat … Trades that didn’t happen … Injury notes on Toews, Gomez, Hedman, Bogosian, and Vokoun … Cherry goes off on Burke (video)

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: A couple GMs who could be under the gun this offseason: Scott Howson, Pierre Gauthier, George McPhee, Brian Burke, and Dean Lombardi. The Sharks might be willing to trade Joe Pavelski, prospects and picks for Rick Nash after the season. A Nash to Rangers deal didn’t happen because they wouldn’t include Chris Kreider. The Bruins and Blackhawks tried to get Sheldon Souray at the deadline. The Avalanche and Canucks tried to get Steve Ott. The Flyers were close to trading Sergei Bobrovsky, but decided against it due to Ilya Bryzgalov’s inconsistent play. The Lightning, Maple Leafs and Blackhawks were looking for goaltending. Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk was almost traded at the deadline. Sources say that 3 or 4 teams were bidding for him, including the Maple Leafs. The Ducks would have moved Teemu Selanne, but he didn’t want to go anywhere. The Rangers, Sharks, Bruins and Kings were interested. Sergei Gonchar could be moved in the offseason.
  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: The Predators weren’t shopping goalie Anders Lindback at the deadline, but he could be moved after the season. They could get a 2nd round pick at the draft.
  • Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times: Jonathan Toews has missed 6 games with a concussion, and will be out at least 2 more. He hasn’t started skating again, but has done some off-ice workout. There is a chance defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson (concussion symptoms) plays on Tuesday.
  • Toronto Sun: Canadiens forward Scott Gomez suffered an eye injury in the 3rd period against Minnesota the other night and is out indefinitely. He may have played his last game in a Canadiens uniform. There is the outside chance that he’s traded (2 years left on contract, $7.3 million cap hit), but it’s more likely he’ll be bought out or buried in the AHL. If he’s bought out, he’d have about a $1.6 million cap hit for the next 4 years.
  • Ira Haufman of the Tampa Tribune: Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman missed his 4th straight game with an upper-body injury, but he’s expected to practice this week, and could be cleared to play for Tuesday. Their trainer said it is not a concussion.
  • Don Cherry’s Coaches Corner: Cherry goes off Brian Burke’s lack of Ontario players on the Maple Leafs roster.

Looking at legal action against Cherry … Crosby could be cleared for contact … Stars may need to add to get to floor … Kadri healing quickly

  • James Mirtle via twitter: Stu Grimson, Chris Nilan and Jim Thomson are “considering further recourse” against Don Cherry. “Cherry’s comments were … baseless and slanderous.” Josh Cooper via twitter: Stu Grimson: “Further recourse does include an investigation into what legal recourse might be available to this group.”
  • Pat Leonard of the NY Daily News: Rangers defenseman is still receiving treatment for a his headaches and likely won’t be with the team this week. Tortorella received word on Saturday that Staal was “feeling good.” Asked if he’s prepared for a long-term Staal absence, Tortorella said: “I don’t know if you prepare that way. We just – whoever’s out there practicing, we’re preparing. And if someday Marc comes in and he’s there, we’re gonna prepare him the best we can to play a game.”
  • Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: So with Sean Avery’s salary cap number not counting against the Dallas Stars cap number while he’s on the AHL, it may require them to add someone to make sure they don’t fall below the cap floor. The new player they add may have to make $1.2 million or more. Winger Tomas Vincour is only at $800,000 so he may have to move to the AHL for a more expensive player. Some free agents GM Joe Nieuwendyk could look at: Mike Grier, John Madden, Sergei Samsonov, Steve Bernier, Chris Clark, and Michael Nylander.
  • Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune: Lightning defenseman Mattias Ohlund will be out for up to a month as he’ll be having arthroscopic surgery on both knees today. He’s already on the IR, and hasn’t skated since Sept. 29th. “I’m going to say four to six weeks, but it really depends on how he feels, so it could be before that,” Yzerman said. The Lightning already have 7 healthy defenseman on the roster so it’s unlikely they look to acquire someone.
  • Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News: The Red Wings power play is 0 for 9 to start the season, so they’ll try Jiri Hudler on the wing during Thursday’s game against the Canucks.
  • Eric Stephenson of the OC Register: Recently acquired Kyle Cumiskey is expected to head to the Ducks AHL team. Goalie Jeff Deslauriers and winger Brian McGrattan need to clear waivers before they can head to Syracuse.
  • Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun: Leafs forward Nazem Kadri is recovering quickly, “The little bastard is back faster than I was led to believe,” Wilson said. Kadri suffered a knee injury in late September and may find himself playing for the Marlies for a bit to shed some rust. He was expected to be out 3 to 4 weeks, but is back on the ice after only 2.

Audio from Kaberle, Burke, Byfuglien and Cherry calling Lemieux a phony and hypocrite

  • Tomas Kaberle Audio from AM 640: “We don’t want to distract the team or anything like that,” said Kaberle. “If I’m no [longer] needed on this team then we can talk about it. Obviously we’ve still got 12 days to go and like I said right now it’s nothing to talk about.”
  • Brian Burke Audio from the Fan 590: Burke talks with Greg Brady, Nick Kypreos and Doug Maclean about Grabovski and concussion question, Tomas Kaberle situation, Beauchem and Versteeg trades, Phil Kessel, and Mike Komisarek’s struggles
  • Dustin Byfuglien Audio from the Fan 590: “Dustin Byfuglien joins Hockey Central to talk about his new contract with the Thrashers, his time with the Trashers so far and his experience at the NHL all-star game this year.”
  • Don Cherry Audio – Grapeline from the Fan 590: “Don speaks out against Mario Lemieux’s threat to leave the NHL if fighting isn’t taken seriously.” Cherry calls Lemieux a phony and a hypocrite.

If anyone knows any other radio stations/sites that offer audio for individuals interviews, please let me know as I’ve only found a couple. My email address can be found in the ‘contact’ tab.

Washington was one of the teams that inquired.
