The end for Selanne? Toews finally over concussion … Komarov going back to KHL … Lombardi talks Richards, Carter trades

  • Jonathan Davis via twitter: Teemu Selanne told Davis that if there is no NHL season this year, he’s likely played his last NHL game.
  • Chris Kuc via twitter: Blackhawks Jonathan Toews wasn’t fully over his concussion when he played in the playoffs last year. It wasn’t until late last week that Toews felt he was completely over his concussion. He missed the final 2 months of the regular season, but came back for the Blackhawks playoff series against Coyotes. When he returned, he was symptom free and passed the NHL concussion protocols. He was still being bothered by balance and eyesight issues, but were discovered and solved by a chiropractic neurology facility.

    “Even if you don’t feel something and you think you’re symptom-free, there’s probably still something there that’s kind of hindering you and affecting the way your brain works,” Toews told the Tribune on Wednesday. “It was just a lot of eye-movement things. My eyes didn’t track very well. They didn’t look from one target to the next very well. My balance with my eyes closed and my head turned a certain way was terrible. (There were) little things that I would think were normal because I didn’t feel something in my head.

  • Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter: Maple Leafs prospect Leo Komarov will be leaving the AHL Marlies and heading back to the KHL. Darren Dreger via twitter: Komarov wants to play for the Maple Leafs when the lockout ends. Jonas Siegel via twitter: The wheels are in motion of Komarov to join Moscow Dynamo. His 1 year contract did allow have a provision to return. Komarov and the Leafs are working to ensure he’s able to return to North America if the lockout ends.

    “One of the big things is I think Leo wants to make sure that if he does leave that he can come back if the lockout ends,” said Eakins, noting a similar sentiment from the organization’s perspective.

    “No matter what happens, this kid is a good prospect, he’s worked hard to get where he’s at for a shot at the NHL. And that’s his end-game. For Leo, this is about playing in the NHL, that’s what he wants to do and I think he’s going to push for a job if it ever does start back up.”

    Komarov was drawing a $62,500 AHL salary.

    “It’s maybe that whole thing about I want to try and see if I can make it,” Komarov explained back in early October. “If not, then I’m going to live with it. But if I will stay in KHL, yeah it’s good money, it’s nice to be there, but then when I’m 40, [my kids] are going to ask me ‘Why didn’t you play in the NHL?’”

  • Jonas Siegel via twitter: Matt Frattin hasn’t been cleared to play yet, waiting for medical clearance, and could return this weekend.
  • Sportsnet: Kings GM Dean Lombardi on the Carter and Richards trades.

Flames interested in Turris, shopping Bourque … Oilers in no need to rush Gagner trade … Kaleta hearing today … Green has setback … Hedberg starts

  • Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald: It’s no secret that the Flames and Senators have shown interest in Kyle Turris. Cruickshank wonders exactly how much talent does he have? He had only 25 points in 65 games last year. He is still young, and was the 3rd overall pick in 2007. If the Flames were to win the bidding war for him, what if they give him Matt Stajan money and he turn out to be Matt Stajan. If they were to get him, they would have a nice young core up the middle with Turris, 22, and Mikael Backlund, 22, and Roman Horak, 20. What the cost would be is the big question?
  • Mark Spector of Sportsnet: Flames GM Jay Feaster said he’s not doing a full rebuild in Calgary and won’t subject fans to having a team finish at the bottom of the standings for several years. Word is that he’s been shopping Rene Bourque and is interested in Turris.
  • David Staple of the Edmonton Journal: Staples take on the Sam Gagner trade rumors. With the emergence of several defenseman, the need of an upgrade along the blueline is not that pressing at the moment. They appear to have 4 capable blueliners, even without Ryan Whitney. By the trade deadline, the Oilers may have to move someone, either Ales Hemsky, Gagner or Linus Omark. Other wingers haven’t solidified themselves as long term Oilers/top line NHLers: Ryan Smyth (UFA at seasons end), Ryan Jones and Magnus Paajarvi. There is no rush for the Oilers to rush into a deal. They need to see if Smyth and Hemsky can stay healthy, if Gagner can pick it up, and if Omark and Paajarvi can put up points in the NHL.
  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: Though it’s hard to forecast ahead, Dater thinks the Avs could spend some of their cap space on the right rental player.
  • Nick Kypreos via twitter: Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta will have a hearing at 1:00 pm today for an incident in the 1st period of last night’s game.
  • Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch: Jeff Carter will travel with the team to Philadelphia this weekend, but won’t play. Kristian Huselius practiced in a no-contact jersey yesterday for the 1st time since he torn his chest muscle in July. He’s still weeks away. Winger Jared Boll is also weeks away.
  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Capitals defenseman Mike Green had an apparent setback yesterday as he wasn’t able to skate for more than 10 minutes. He’s doubtful for Friday, and has missed 3 games so far.

    “If I feel good I’ll play,” Green said. “It’s day to day. I wake up each day, it feels a little bit better, tomorrow could be a lot better than today.

    “It’s just one of the things, with your ankles and the skate,” Green added. “If I can’t skate, I cant play. The swelling stayed down; it’s just a matter of getting it strong and comfortable enough to play. I figure in the next couple days it should be strong and we can go from there.”

  • Dan Murphy via twitter: Cory Schneider will start in net for the Canucks tonight against Josh Harding and the Wild.
