Morning Hits II: Miller and Vanek, Three Bernier landing spots and Hotstove video

  • Connor Mellas of NHL.com: Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek will be UFAs after next season.

    “Ideally, I would like to keep them here, yes,” Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said at a press conference Thursday. “But again, we have to look at it in the context of when they become unrestricted and whether or not we have the ability to do deals with them, and then the cost of those deals if we do.”

    It is possible that they re-sign both, though no talks have taken place.

    “We’re going to stay, we’re going to explore all of the available options. And we have been,” Regier said. “I have been. I’ll continue to do that. One of those options is that those players will remain here next year, because the market is going to dictate to large part what we’re able to do to help the organization. … They’re exploring their options as well.”

  • Dennis Bernstein: (in the middle of a discussion) A Jonathan Bernier deal with the Wild and Jason Zucker is fair. Could expand the deal to include Alec Martinez and Darcy Kuemper to fill other team needs.
  • Steve Simmons: The Maple Leafs, Wild and Flyers are interested in Jonathan Bernier. The Kings have targeted Jake Gardiner, Brayden Schenn and Charlie Coyle. It’s unlikely the Leafs move Gardiner for Bernier.
  • Hockey Night in Canada Hotstove: “VAN to announce Tortorella early next week…IOC agrees to cover players’ Olympic insurance costs, PHI considered favourite for Bernier if that’s what Flyers want to do, but they have told LA Couturier not available, EDM gives Horcoff permission to talk to other teams to gauge interest, Will be wild week in PHO. Details of potential plan to be revealed Monday. “Cautious optimism” it will pass, but foes expected to fight hard.”

Morning Hits: Flames offer to Avs, Leafs buyout, Alfredsson, Petrov, Vigneault, MacLean and Hotstove video

  • Jeff Marek: According to Elliott Friedman, the Calgary Flames have offered their three first round pick to the Colorado Avalance for the first over all pick, with the Avs saying no. (the Flames have the 6th, 22nd and 28th pick)
  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators Daniel Alfredsson hasn’t really started the process of deciding whether he’ll play next season or retire.

    “I’ve just allowed myself to take it easy, spend some time with the family, to relax, get a feeling of how my body feels, how I feel.”

    The Senators won’t be rushing Alfredsson.

    “It’s his decision,” said MacLean. “It’s not my decision. After the years he’s put in here, he’s earned that right. A lot of times the decision was made for me and I didn’t get to make the decision. It was made for me, ‘You’re done.’

    “That happens to a lot of guys. What Daniel has done, and his body of work in the league, he’s one of those people where you let him decide.”

  • Igor Eronko: Kirill Petrov has a year left on his KHL deal, but the Islanders have ensured him a roster spot.
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Multiple sources saying that Alain Vigneault and the Rangers have an agreement in principle and may be finalized tomorrow.

Morning Hits: Callahan, Hagelin, Eakins Canucks, Avs, Horton, Richards, Sharks, Leafs and the Hotstove video

  • TSN: Both Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin had shoulder surgeries on Friday to repair torn left labrums.
  • TSN: The Stars have been granted permission from the Maple Leafs to interview Marlies coach Dallas Eakins. Eakins has received head coaching interest from the Canucks and Rangers, and associate coaching interest from the Oilers.
  • Antti Raanta: “I’ve made my decision!” (I don’t think any NHL team/insider has made it be known that they are Raanta’s choice. The Wild, Jets and Oilers had expressed interest.)
  • Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province: The Canucks will have a busy month: deadline for their AHL team, the draft, free agents and buyouts. The buyout period starts 48 hours after the Stanley Cup Final and Canucks candidates are Keith Ballard, Roberto Luongo and David Booth. Booth likely wouldn’t be medically cleared, so a buyout wouldn’t be possible. If the Canucks have any leverage left with the Luongo situation, it may be gone by July.
  • Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe: Dupont wonders if Patrick Roy will push Joe Sakic to trade the first overall pick, possibly targeting Kings Jonathan Bernier. Highly unlikely that the Bruins will be able to retain Nathan Horton with the salary cap going down. Looking like the Rangers will amnesty Brad Richards. It could be an interesting summer in San Jose with Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Dan Boyle all entering the last year of their deals. Not likely to happen, but Thornton may look good in Toronto with Joe Colborne as his understudy for the next 2 or 3 years. Thornton may be able to help Phil Kessel hit the 50 goal mark. If Ryane Clowe wants to remain with the Rangers, he might have to take a pay cut from the $3.625 million he made this season.
  • Cody Nickolet: Elliotte Friedman said that the Avalanche would consider trading down  but it would have to be an unbelievable offer to move out of the top 3.
