Sunday morning rumor round up: Flyers, Coyotes, Avalanche, Maple Leafs, Kings, Ducks, Rangers. Islanders, and Panthers

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Flyers are off to a 2-6-1 start and GM Paul Holmgren needs help everywhere. They need scoring, would like another blueliner, and could use goaltending help. Word is they would like to make “a big move.” Holmgren could see if Jarome Iginla is available. Coyotes Keith Yandle may be the only impact blueliner available, but he would come with a high price tag and makes $5.25 million. Holmgren may be looking for a capable backup for Bryzgalov. Avalanche’s Ryan O’Reilly is looking for more than Matt Duchene’s $3.5 million, which is why he’s been offered around. The Maple Leafs have held talks with the Kings about Jonathan Bernier, and they aren’t the only team interested. Many wonder what Shane Doan is thinking about the Coyotes situation. The Canucks, Rangers and Flyers were interested before, and might be again. The Panthers are not for sale, but owher Cliff Viner is looking for investors. The Sharks are looking for a winger to give him move balance on all three lines. Leafs GM Dave Nonis may consider trading Phil Kessel, though it may be hard to find someone who would take on the $5.4 million cap hit and is one year away from being an unrestricted free agent. Once (if) the Islanders are out of the playoff picture, expect Mark Streit to be dealt, likely for a 2nd round pick. The Ducks and Ryan Getzlaf were reportedly close on a long-term $6 million deal before the lockout, could it be resurrected?
  • Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: The Flyers may look to upgrade their offense. They may prefer to move draft picks to acquire it. The Rangers, Kings, Capitals and Predators may also be looking to add offense. The Flyers have about $1.5 million in cap space, but that will grow when Chris Pronger and Matt Walker are put on the LTIR. Some players that will be UFA’s at the end of the season that may intrigue the Flyers are: Corey Perry, Brenden Morrow, Michael Ryder, Stephen Weiss, Ryan Getzlaf,  Alexander Semin, David Clarkson and Jarome Iginla.
  • Spector’s Hockey via twitter: Elliotte Friedman said that there are rumors that the Panthers could move Stephen Weiss for the right price. Panthers GM Dale Tallon calls those rumors ridiculous. Tallon said he won’t trade Weiss. Glenn Healy says that Weiss is on the trade market.
  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: From Hockey Night in Canada’s Hotstove. Glen Healy said the Avs were cheating fans  by not signing O’Reilly and Kevin Weeks said “The Avs are dumb if they don’t sign O’Reilly.” Healy added the Avalanche are trying to trade Shane O’Brien for a forward.

Rumors: O’Reilly, Weiss, Subban and Luongo … Videos: Hotstove and Coaches Corner

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: There has been talk that the Avalanche are calling around to see what they could get for center Ryan O’Reilly. The asking is a young forward and a 2nd round pick. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is calling teams looking for help in multiple positions. The Kings are looking for a blueline help. The Florida Panthers could be for sale again. The Panthers may not have the money to sign Stephen Weiss, and may have to trade him at the deadline. Subban talks have go nowhere, and may end with Subban asking for a trade. Subban wants a 5 year, $27.5 million deal, $5.5 million cap hit. If the Canadiens explore trading him, the Flyers, Red Wings and Rangers and Jets may make a push for him. Sources say that the Jets want to make a splash with an impact player, and they have the assets to do it. Canucks GM Mike Gillis is telling teams he isn’t moving Roberto Luongo until he gets his asking price. The Oilers have the pieces to get Luongo, but he wouldn’t waive his no-trade clause to go there. The Panthers don’t want to do a deal unless the Canucks take money back. Gillis knows that some are facing pressure to win, and a GM might make a move to save his job. Flyers and Capitals may get in the mix.
  • HOTSTOVE: The panel talks about Calgary and Markham arenas and P.K. Subban.

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.

Bolland and Pronger doubtful for their Game 3′s … Bob or Boosh? Burke to put out an offer sheet? Options for Leafs

  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Backstrom and Arnott trade places at yesterday’s practice. Capitals forward lines: Ovechkin-Arnott-Knuble, Sturm-Backstrom-Semin, Laich-Johansson-Chimera, Hendricks-Gordon-Bradley, King-Beagle-Fehr
  • Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: A source close to the Flyers said before yesterday’s game there is a “50/50″ chance that Chris Pronger will be in the lineup Monday. After the game he said “He’s probably out Monday.” So it’s looking like a ‘must win’ would get Pronger back in the lineup. Who will be in net for the Flyers on Monday is the next big question. Laviolette pointed out that Bobrovsky has bounced back from tough games in the past. Arguments for both sides are,

    For those in “Bob’s” corner:  Boucher seems better suited in a relief role than Bobrovsky because of his experience. In addition, Bobrovsky has been more effective on the road than Boucher.

  • Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune: From an interview with Wild owner Craig Leipold: On GM Chuck Fletcher, “He knows he has my complete and absolute confidence.” Fletcher has full control on hiring the next coach, and there is “no financial restraints when it comes to a coach.”
  • Sean Leahy via twitter: “SKA & KHL Pres Medvedev claims Hitchcock & MacTavish are 2 of 4 finalists for head coach.”
  • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: “Brian Burke said an offer sheet for restricted free agents is not out of the question in the future.” Some RFA’s this year are, Steven Stamkos, Shea Weber, Zach Parise, Keith Yandle, Zach Bogosian. If Brad Richards doesn’t want to sign with the Leafs, would they look at the next best option, Brooks Laich of Washington? Another intriguing UFA is Ville Leino.
  • Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star: Zwolinski looks at some possible UFA centers the Maple Leafs could look at. Brad Richards: Will either re-sign with the Stars or sign with the Rangers. Simon Gagne: more of a LWer. Tim Connolly: could fill the hole for a year or two. Jason Arnott: same as Connolly. Michal Handzus: a long shot, but how much game does he have left. Zwolinski looks at some possible trade partners. New York Rangers: RFA’s Brandon Dubinsky, Brian Boyle. Rookie Derek Stepan and Erik Christensen has 1 year left before he’s a UFA. Ottawa Senators: Jason Spezza has 3 years left and could be moved to restock the roster. Boston Bruins: David Krejci has been rumored to Toronto. Would be costly to add him, makes $3.75 million next year. Philadelphia Flyers: Jeff Carter has been linked to the Leafs in the past, he and Mike Richards are locked up long term. The Flyers have less than $500,000 in cap space for next year. A long shot. San Jose Sharks: They have to interesting centers, Joe Pavelski ($4 million) and Devin Setoguchi ($1.8 million). Both are not likely to be moved, unless they disappoint in the playoffs again. Setoguchi is an RFA this summer, Pavelski has 2 years left. New Jersey Devils: Zach Parise is a RFA this summer, can the Devils afford him.

For those in Boosh’s corner: Boucher has been the steadier goalie this season, and his experience gives the team a calming effect.
