NHL Rumors II: Jets, Predators, Canucks, Panthers, Hurricanes, Oilers and Maple Leafs

  • Elliotte Friedman: Evander Kane’s recent benching doesn’t mean he’ll be traded by the Jets. There would be plenty of teams interested if they decide to trade him. Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff may quietly test the trade market for Kane. The Jets could look to trade a defenseman for a forward to increase their options.

    Friedman thinks the Predators may take a run at Thomas Vanek.

    For the Canucks: “the Aquilini family’s gone quiet, letting the season play out before announcing any decisions. One owner said last week he thinks they are looking at the financial implications of a “clean sweep,” starting all over again. It’s a big number, because you also have to factor in the replacements and how much that will affect your on-ice business. Do you want to buy out anyone? What do you want to add? Mike Gillis was telling the truth last week when he said he didn’t know if he’d be back. I don’t think anyone there knows yet what ownership will do.”

    Friedman could see the Panthers having interest in Dave Bolland.

  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: (mailbag) Hurricanes Eric Staal could be made available, but the cost would be huge. If the Oilers were interested, the Hurricanes would likely be looking for something other than Sam Gagner and Nail Yakupov. They would be interested in getting a high end defenseman back. Staal has a cap hit of $8.25 million cap hit with salaries of $9.25 million and $9.5 million. The Hurricanes may be more interested in moving Cam Ward. If Paul Maurice remains with the Jets, Matheson could see them taking a run at Ward. The Jets would then need to find a taker for Ondrej Pavelec.
  • The Fourth Period: The Hurricanes are expected to move goalie Cam Ward this offseason. Eric Staal and Jeff Skinner’s name has been in the rumor mill. The Leafs were among the teams that inquired about Skinner earlier this season. The Canes had spoken with a few teams about Ward, who holds a no-trade clause.
  • The Fourth Period: Nikolai Kulemin doesn’t appear to be in the Leafs future. They did have him on the trade market earlier in the season, but decided to hold on to him. It has been rumored that the Penguins could have interest in the pending UFA. James Reimer and Nazem Kadri are expected to be traded this summer.

Morning Rumors: Staal’s, Skinner, Ward, Subban, Miller and Maple Leafs

  • Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer: Hurricanes Jim Rutherford is expected to step down as the teams general manager after the season. He could remain on as their president, a position he currently holds as well. Ron Francis is expected to take over the GM position. Francis has been working with Rutherford and handles many of their day-to-day operation duties.
  • Hope Smoke: Doug MacLean: ”I was told a couple of weeks ago that Ron Francis will take over as GM in Carolina”
  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC Sports: Friedman thinks at least one offensive minded Maple Leafs forward will be moved for a more defensive player.Both P.K. Subban and Ryan Miller have chosen to wait until after the season to talk contract, despite their teams willing to talk.

    After the season the Hurricanes and Eric Staal will see if their relationship is worth preserving. Eric has been playing on the wing with Jordan and Alex Semin.

    It’s likely that the Hurricanes could look to move out some salary this summer. Two players who they could look at moving are Cam Ward (no trade clause) and Jeff Skinner. Other teams have been told that Ward is healthy. The Hurricanes may be willing to eat some salary to move Ward.

    Last summer the Hurricanes put Skinner’s name out there, but didn’t seem that serious about moving him. They wanted to see what value he had.

  • Hope Smoke: Nick Kypreos: ”The Hurricanes are going to make everyone available at the draft. The Staals, Skinner, Ward anyone for the right price”
  • Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun: P.K. Subban is believed to be looking for an $8 million per year deal, and hopes to remain with the Canadiens.

    “I’ll tell you this right now: My goal coming into the NHL was to help the Montreal Canadiens win a Stanley CUp. It still is,” Subban told the Sun on Saturday.

    “If I’m not a Montreal Canadien, it won’t be because I don’t want to be there. I have every intention of being there, playing my entire career there.

    “If it doesn’t happen, it’s because it’s a business and not because I don’t want to be there.”

  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”If Leafs miss the playoffs one of two things will happen, replacing the coach or trading guys like Kadri/Gardiner”
  • Hope Smoke: James Mirtle: ”At the end of last season the Leafs needed help down the middle & on D. They then went & spent their money on Clarkson”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: “Is Spott the eventual replacement for Carlyle? I think the Leafs hired him to be the Marlies coach & he needs time there”

Morning Rumors: Hurricanes, Senators, Blue Jackets, Oilers, Sabres and Flyers

  • Darren Dreger: The Hurricanes have some big options this offseason. Cam Ward will likely be traded. Jeff Skinner or Eric Staal could become available. It would depend on GM Jim Rutherford’s future and if he’ll move up, stay in the same spot or move out. There could be player, coaching and management changes for the Canes.
  • Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen: Craig Anderson is heading into the final season of his contract. Do they look to re-sign him or wait for next season to play out and potentially lose him for nothing? Looking like Patrick Weicioch could be traded this summer, especially if the Sens re-sign Eric Gryba. The Senators don’t have a first round pick this year from the Bobby Ryan-Ducks trade. If they want one, the only players that are good enough to get one in return are Ryan, Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza. Karlsson isn’t going anywhere. The Ducks were thought to be one of the teams interested in Spezza. Ryan has one year left at $5.562 million and never really fit with Spezza. At times he wasn’t used much by coach Paul MacLean.
  • Mike Halford: Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Marian Gaborik.

    “We had thought about it long and hard when we acquired him that we needed a little bit more skill,” Kekalainen told Sportsnet’s HockeyCentral. “I think we still could use a little bit more skill like Marian Gaborik has, but it just didn’t fit and it was time to move on because he was going to go to the unrestricted free agency.”

  • Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun: The Sabres have all but announced they won’t be drafting Aaron Ekblad. Jones wonders why the Oilers and Sabres haven’t been doing business. The Sabres have need forwards and have plenty on the blueline. The Oilers have forwards but need help on the blueline.
  • Sam Carchidi: Flyers Robert Haag will be in the discussion of a D spot next year if Kimmo Timonen retires.

Morning NHL Rumors Involving Over Half of the League

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Flames Mike Cammalleri may be the most likely player at the trade deadline to be on the move. Brian Burke is getting calls from contenders about Cammalleri. The Kings, Canucks and Red Wings are believed to have interest. The Canadiens could also look at bringing him back.Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is working the phones. He’s listening to offers for Dustin Byfuglien, and has been talking to teams about Evander Kane. One executive said: “you’d be nuts to give up on young players. You just have to live with their growing pains.”

    The Sabres are expected to make one last attempt to re-sign Ryan Miller before the Olympic roster freeze.

    Both Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau are close to signing contract extensions with the Sharks. Their deals will be close to their $7 million and $6.9 million deals. The Sharks could listen to offers for Dan Boyle, including the Rangers, but isn’t he’s not expected to be traded.

    Leafs GM Dave Nonis is listening to offers for Nazem Kadri and Jake Gardiner. He might be trying to spark Kadri’s play with having his name out there in trade talk. The Flames could be interested both Kadri and Gardiner, and could put a package together that the Leafs might like.

    Predators GM David Poile is listening to offers on David Legwand.

    The Coyotes are believed to have called the Stars about Ray Whitney as they look for scoring.

    Panthers GM Dale Tallon might find a taker for Tomas Fleischmann by the trade deadline.

    Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekelainen may have had talks with Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford. Basically every player on the Hurricanes rosters is believed to be available, except for Eric and Jordan Staal and Jeff Skinner. The Blue Jackets need depth and are interested in Tuomo Ruutu.

  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Brooks wonders if the Rangers would trade Carl Hagelin in a deal for Jets Andrew Ladd.

    Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is trying to sign Marek Malik.Olli Jokinen may be one of the more sought have trade rentals at the deadline.

    Sabres Steve Ott would be bring a lot to a contender, though they would likely to overpay to get him.

    Rangers options with Dan Girardi: “A) signing the first-pair right defenseman to a contract extension, or B) dealing him as a rental property to a contender such as the Bruins or Ducks for a package of blue-chip youngsters; the only undeniably wrong answer is, C) keeping Girardi only to have him walk for nothing in return as an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

  • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Penguins GM Ray Shero said he agreed with the Bruins for allowing Zdeno Chara to carry the flag for Slovakia. On if Sidney Crosby was asked to carry Canada’s flag: “Hard to turn down that opportunity,” Shero wrote. “Agreed with Boston on letting (Chara) go.”

    Two General Managers on trade talk:  “It’s really heating up,” one said. Said another: “I can’t remember it being so quiet. It’s eerily quiet.”There are a large number of teams that could be interested Nazem Kadri. The Leafs haven’t put up a “For Sale” sign, but are listening. Management isn’t saying much, but it’s believed if they get a fair offer for him, they would move him without hesitation. The question for the Leafs is, what do they think fair value is?

  • Slava Malamud: Capitals prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov to Sport-Express: ”I will not stay in KHL even for $10 million. I gave my word to #Caps and will keep it”

Morning Rumors II: Hurricanes, Predators, Leafs, Oilers, Avs, Rangers, Penguins and Coyotes

  • Mark Spector: Cam Ward has a no-trade clause and a long history with the Hurricanes. GM Jim Rutherford really likes him. Seems like it would be a long shot for them to move him. Darren Dreger: A Cam Ward trade is possible, but it would require a big return for an in-season trade. He should return to the lineup next week.
  • The Fourth Period: Hurricanes goalies Anton Khudobin and Justin Peters have been in the rumors, and now it appears that Cam Ward may consider a change of scenery. Both Khudobin and Peters will be UFAs at the end of the season. If the Hurricanes are able to re-sign Khudobin, they could explore a Ward trade in the summer. They are currently looking for a top-six forward.
  • Mark Spector: Spector has heard the Predators may be interested in Oilers Sam Gagner.
  • The Fourth Period: Nazem Kadri could be the odd man out as the Maple Leafs look for a top-line center. It is thought that the Leafs could package Kadri and Jake Gardiner for a proven first line center, then move Tyler Bozak to the second line. This type of move may have to wait until the offseason. The Oilers and Leafs have talked, but Sam Gagner isn’t a top-line center. The Leafs have shown interest in Jeff Skinner and Paul Stastny in the past. They wouldn’t move Kadri for a pending UFA in Stastny.
  • James Mirtle: Darren Dreger said that if the Maple Leafs are going to trade Nazem Kadri, and there is a chance that they will, they will need a center to come back in the deal.
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: If the Rangers decide to go the route of sellers by the trade deadline, they don’t have a lot to deal off their roster. They also don’t have a lot of resources in their system to bring in players if they want to go that route. They do need to get bigger. They could trade Michael Del Zotto for a defenseman that could play 16 minutes and have the ability to play in the top-four if need be. They are not deep enough to trade a J.T. Miller, Pavel Buchnevich or a 1st round pick. Dan Girardi and Ryan Callahan could be rental chips. If they think they could contend, they won’t move either of them. GM Glen Sather could look at what the Penguins may offer for Callahan to play along side Sidney Crosby.
  • Craig Custance of ESPN: Coyotes coach Dave Tippett on taking the next step.

    “You look at the last four years, we’ve been in survival mode,” Tippett said when we chatted before Tuesday night’s loss. “Where we are now, we want to take the next step as an organization. To do that, you have to be more than just scratch and claw. You have to be able to compete in all facets of the game. The facets of our game that were lacking were offensive production, power play, things like that. What we’ve done is we’ve enhanced some of that, but it’s taken away our bread and butter.”

    They will need to add more offense and skill if they want to compete with the top teams in the West.

  • Sean Fitz-Gerald: LA Kings scout Alyn McCauley was at the Leafs-Sabres game. John Ferguson Jr. was also there. Mike Harrington: Scouts from 14 teams at the game. A lot of them live in the area. Greg Brady: At the game: Sabres, Ducks, Kings, Predators, Flyers, Blackhawks, Blue Jackets, Stars and Coyotes.

Late Morning Rumors: Kadri, Gardiner, Gagner, Skinner, Briere, Kane and some Goaltenders

  • The Fourth Period: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis is still looking for a top-six forward. It is thought that he could be willing to trade Nazem Kadri and Jake Gardiner if they get the right offer. The Rangers, Devils, Flyers and Oilers have reportedly inquired about Gardiner. The Oilers are actively shopping Sam Gagner. The Leafs and Oilers have scouted each other this season, but it’s not known if trade talks have progressed. The Leafs had shown interest in Jeff Skinner in the past, but Hurricanes are not looking to trade him at this time.
  • The Fourth Period: There were rumors that the Sabres and Canadiens were discussing a deal involving Daniel Briere, but talks have quieted. With Alex Galchenyuk breaking his hand and out for six weeks, Briere may be staying put for the time being. The Canadiens have inquired about Jets Evander Kane.
  • Dan Rosen of NHL.com: (mailbag) Rosen can see the Capitals and Blues making goaltender moves. The Hurricanes shouldn’t do anything while Cam Ward is injured. The same can be said for the Ducks and Viktor Fasth. Trading Jonas Hiller would obviously be a mistake. Philipp Grubauer’s play has made Michal Neuvirth available. Neuvirth to the Islanders makes sense.

Morning Rumors: Bruins, Sabres, Habs, Coyotes, Canes, Avs, Pens, Isles, Kings, Rangers and Hotstove Video

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The NHL trade deadline is March 5th. The Olympic roster freeze is February 8th till February 23rd.

    “The roster freeze will act as a deadline, especially for those teams that want to save a little bit of money,” said a league executive.

    “There’s a chance to get deals done in the next few weeks that will get money off the books.”

    The Bruins have said they will try to fill the loss of Dennis Seidenberg from within. If that doesn’t work out as planned, they could look at Dan Girardi.

    Ryan Miller may not be going anywhere as the new GM may look to re-sign him, and they may not be able to get what they want for him on the trade market. The asking price is three prospects and a first round pick. The Blues may be the only option for Miller, and they may not be looking to trade.

    The Canadiens are looking for forward depth. GM Marc Bergevin may have looked at Flames Curtis Glencross, who has two years left at $2.55 million. The Canadiens are looking to trade Daniel Briere.

    The Coyotes for looking for forward depth and may look at Sabres Matt Moulson.

    Thought is the Hurricanes are not done trading. A couple teams have said the Hurricanes are willing to trade anyone but Eric and Jordan Staal. Teams will call about Jeff Skinner, but he isn’t going anywhere. Jiri Tlusty, Tuomo Ruuttu and Ron Hainsey will likely be traded by the deadline.

    The Avs will have to make a decision on Paul Stastny before the trade deadline. If they are able to get a 1st round pick and a prospect for him, they may move him.

  • Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Penguins GM Ray Shero on the March 5th trade deadline day.

    “A lot can happen between now and then,” Shero said this past week. “But I like our team. I don’t feel like we have to do something.”

    Sense withing the organization is that if they make a move, it would be a “hockey trade,” giving up someone significant to get someone of worth and under contract. Shero may be looking for a winger for either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. Shero will listen to all offers, but doesn’t mean he’d be actively looking to trade someone like Olli Maata. The Jets are reportedly willing to trade Evander Kane, who has four years left with a $5.25 million cap hit. Shero and Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff have not talked about Kane.

  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: To retain Ryan O’Reilly’s rights, the Avalanche would have to pay the pending RFA at least $6.5 million. He can’t be traded until after February 28th. Matt Duchene will have a cap hit of $6 million for the next five years. There has been an “uneasy truce” between O’Reilly and the Avalanche since they matched his offer sheet with the Flames. The Avs could sign O’Reilly to an contract extension at any time, but they should draw a line saying, ”We won’t pay anyone a dime more than Duchene, no matter what.” Dater doesn’t think they should trade him anytime soon.
  • Arthur Staple of Newsday: Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald is on pace for a career year in points and is a pending UFA. GM Garth Snow wouldn’t comment on if there have been contract extension talks. He could become the Islanders best trade chip at the deadline if they are out of the playoff picture.

    “I think you realize it’s there, that it’s possible or whatever,” MacDonald said. “I’m hopeful things get done. We’ve dug ourselves a pretty big hole here so there isn’t really time to worry about that.”

  • David Pagnotta: As Dennis Bernstein pointed out, the Kings are not finished trading. Nothing is imminent, but they are looking for a scorer.
  • Dennis Bernstein: Oilers Scott Howson was scouting the Kings game last night. Talk is the Oilers are very active and looking to make a move now. Ales Hemsky and Sam Gagner are in the mix.
  • Adrian Dater via Sulia: The Rangers had two scouts at the Avalanche-Sharks game. There are rumors they are interested in Tyson Barrie, but he, along with Ryan Wilson, were not in the lineup. There Rangers were the only Eastern team scouting the game.
  • Chip Alexander: Elias Lindholm could rejoin the Hurricanes in Buffalo for Tuesday’s game.
  • Hotstove: The Sabres are getting closer to naming a new GM, with Bruins assistant GM Jim Benning being the leading candidate. The Oilers could be looking at trading Sam Gagner. Before last night’s game, Michael Del Zotto’s camp and the Rangers hadn’t met yet.

Morning Rumors: Canes, Jackets, Habs, Sabres, Ducks, Hawks, Leafs, Avs, Panthers, Kings, Pens and Lucic

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford has been calling around to see what the market for Justin Peters is like. The Oilers are said to have more than a passing interest in Peters.

    Pat LaFontaine’s GM search has grown, with two league executives saying he’s asked permission to speak with 15 to 20 people. Some teams don’t like the idea of losing someone mid-season, with some refusing permission. Bruins assistant GM Jim Benning is the leading candidate.

    Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen wants to make a move. They could use a forward.

    The Canadiens would like a skilled scorer up front, but they don’t have a lot to give up. They have tried to move Brian Gionta in the past, but he won’t get them the return they’d like.

    The Blues, Blackhawks and possibly the Ducks have shown some interest in Sabres Ryan Miller. Miller’s value will be at it’s highest at the trade deadline. The Sabres will have to make a decision on Steve Ott as well.

    The Blackhawks have been sniffing around for help down the middle.

    The Maple Leafs want to do something, especially down the middle.

    Talk is that anyone on the Hurricanes could be available except for: Eric Staal, Jordan Staal, Jeff Skinner or Cam Ward. They are pushing for a playoff spot, but they’d like to make some changes. Names that keep coming up: Tim Gleason, Jiri Tlusty and Tuomo Ruutu.

    The Avalanche are looking for a defenseman. It’s believed they have shown some interest Michael Del Zotto, but the Rangers want a top-four defenseman in return and the Avs don’t have that.

    Panthers GM Dale Tallon is still trying to make moves. At some point he’ll be able to trade Dmitry Kulikov, Tom Gilbert, Shawn Matthias and Marcel Goc.

  • Adrian Dater via Sulia: The Avalache are looking for a defenseman, but Dater doesn’t think that Michael Del Zotto will be the guy.
  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: The Kings might see what they can get for Ben Scrivens once Jonathan Quick returns from injury.

    Matheson thinks the Ducks will look to re-sign Jonas Hiller as long as he isn’t looking for too much money. The Ducks could then look to trade Viktor Fasth.

  • The Fourth Period: The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting the Penguins will look at extending some players “over the next little bit.” Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen will be UFAs at the end of the season. The Penguins currently have about $16 million in cap space for next season.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger on TSN Radio: ”Most of Leafs nation see the value of Clarkson aside from the suspensions.”
  • Brian Stubits on CBS Sports: Youtube video from Vancouver on Saturday night. An incident involving Bruins Milan Lucic, who says that he was hit three times but didn’t hit the guy back. Language warning.

Morning Rumors: Jets, Kane, Flyers, Bruins, Hurricanes and Scouting the Habs-Flyers

  • The Fourth Period: Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff continues to get calls on Evander Kane, but won’t move unless he gets an offer he can’t refuse. The Canadiens talked to the Jets about Kane in the summer and during the season. The Rangers, Flyers, Islanders, Panthers and a few others have kicked tires on Kane. The Canadiens and Flyers are said to be the most aggressive. The Flyers and Jets have been scouting each other. The cost for Kane is believed to be two NHL proven top six forwards and a top prospect or pick. The Flyers might be willing to part with Brayden Schenn, Matt Read and a prospect/pick for Kane.
  • Joe Haggerty of CSNNE: Haggerty expects the Bruins to be interested in Evander Kane if/when the Jets get tired of his act. Haggerty wonders if Bruins fans would be okay with sending Brad Marchand, Jordan Caron, Malcolm Subban and a high draft pick for Kane.
  • The Fourth Period: The Hurricanes are looking to make a big move to help improve their chances of getting into the playoffs. Sources saying GM Jim Rutherford working the phones but coming up empty. They are most likely looking to move Justin Peters. Teams have called about Jeff Skinner, but talks didn’t get far. Rutherford would like to add defenseman and a second-line scorer.
  • David Strehle: Scouting the Canadiens – Flyers: Blackhawks, Blues (2), Flames, Capitals and Jets.
