    On whether Quick could play against the Ducks.

    Well, he’s not skating today. We felt better if he stayed at home. It doesn’t matter. I mean, it does matter about Jonathan, but at the same time, Jonesy’s ready to go, too.

  • Bill Rouse: Red Wings Darren Helm doesn’t have a timetable on his return to the lineup. He has been seeing the same neurologist that Patrick Eaves and Johan Franzen did in the past.

Injury Notes involving 15 teams

  • Farhan Lalji: Canucks Roberto Luongo left last night’s game. Ben Kuzma: Coach John Tortorella said that Luongo has a lower-body injury and is day-to-day. Kuzma thinks it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that it is a groin strain.
  • Jeremy Rutherford: Blues Alex Steen is expected to miss today’s game with an upper-body injury.
  • Aaron Portzline: Blue Jackets winger Matt Calvert isn’t believed to be out long-term. After Saturday’s game his arm was in a sling.
  • Patrick Kearns: Rangers Marc Staal skated both days this past weekend.
  • Larry Brooks: Rangers Dylan McIlrath had an MRI on his knee after suffering an injury on Saturday during his AHL game. Same knee as before.
  • Aaron Vickers: Flames coach Bob Hartley on Curtis Glencross:  “I didn’t get any update but if you look at the replay from yesterday, it doesn’t look very good.”
  • Don Brennan: Senators Mika Zibanejad says he’s ready to go today, ”It’s just a matter if the coach wants me to play or not.”
  • David Strehle: Flyers Erik Gustafsson will be out two weeks with a left knee sprain.
  • Michael Russo: Wild’s Clayton Stoner has a lower-body injury. Coach Yeo doesn’t think that it is serious.
  • Ken Wiebe: Jets Mark Stuart has a lower-body injury and coach Claude Noel isn’t sure if he’ll be able to go tonight.
  • Tracey Myers: Blackhawks Corey Crawford skated yesterday and should start practicing after the Christmas break.
  • LA Kings Insider: Kings Jonathan Quick practiced yesterday but there is still a ways to go. There is no timetable for his return.

    “I haven’t been experiencing the soreness nearly as much as I was, say, a week ago,” he said. “Like you said, it is practice, and you know what the drill is, and you know what you have to do each play, so it’s not a situation where you’re completely in reaction mode and don’t know what’s going to happen. Quite frankly, I could do these drills for another two months and you could feel a hundred percent, and it’s still not the same as playing in games.”

  • Stars GM Jim Nill said that Sergei Gonchar is out seven to 10 days with concussion-like symptoms.
  • Rob Rossi: Penguins defenseman Kris Letang had surgery last week to treat an elbow infection. He’s expected to return after the Christmas break. Rob Scuderi is expected to return on the 27th against the Hurricanes. Paul Martin hasn’t started skating yet, and there is no timetable with Brooks Orpik.
  • Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe: Bruins Injury update: Brad Marchand didn’t practice yesterday but is expected to play tonight. Daniel Paille (concussion) practiced but doesn’t have clearance to play. Adam McQuaid (lower-body) is a possibility for tonight. Dougie Hamilton (lower-body) didn’t practice and is still expected to be out another two weeks. Loui Eriksson (concussion) received treatment yesterday.
  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Rangers Marc Staal said there is “no comparison” between his most recent concussion and the one he suffered in 2011.

    “The last time, I played through a concussion for so long, the effects dragged on forever,” the Rangers’ alternate captain said Sunday morning. “This one is different.

    “From day-to-day afterward, I’ve felt better, quicker. There is no comparison.”

    Staal has been symptom free the past couple days.

  • Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post: Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said that Cody Franson has been bothered by discomfort in the “hips area” since the start of the season.

    “That’s one of those things that we say: If a player misses training camp, he [misses] that foundation, that opportunity to have that underneath you, and it can affect you,” Carlyle said after practice Sunday. “And here we are, in the middle of December, still talking about it.”

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: Scrivens, Callahan, Girardi, Clarkson, Oilers, Holland, Gardiner and the Hotstove

  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: If the Rangers are unable to re-sign Ryan Callahan and/or Dan Girardi before the trade deadline, they must consider trading them for draft picks and prospects.
  • Jonathan Willis of the Edmonton Journal: The Oilers wanted to David Clarkson before his signed with the Maple Leafs. Clarkson has struggled with the Leafs so far this season and Willis wonders the Oilers would consider trading for him if the Leafs want to get out of his contract.
  • Hope Smoke: Dreger has said that Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle better get use to Peter Holland whether he likes it or not. McKenzie saying that GM Dave Nonis has to tell Carlyle to play Jake Gardiner.
  • Brad Ziemer: Elliotte Friedman said on CBC last night that Laurence Gilman could be interviewed for the Flames GM position.
  • Roger Millions: Friedman said that the Flames have asked and have been granted permission to talk with Bruins assistant GM Jim Benning.
  • Hockey Night in Canada Hotstove: Panel talks about Shawn Thornton’s suspension, Sochi Olympic update, Flames and Sabres GM vacancy. The Hurricanes will likely move one of Justin Peters or Anton Khudobin soon. Friedman wouldn’t be surprised if Oilers move Linus Omark.

  • Daren Millard: Kings GM Dean Lombardi said that Jonathan Quick will be out for another month, likely until Christmas.

Morning Rumors: Del Zotto, Weber, Oilers, Panthers, Kings, Canucks and Sabres

  • Renaud Lavoie: Rangers Michael Del Zotto will be a healthy scratch tonight and Lavoie is hearing that a trade is a possibility.
  • Patrick Kearns: “What is Michael Del Zotto’s value even at this point? Still young, former first round pick, still getting super sheltered minutes. Very low defensive zone starts, doesn’t push the play. Other than a few nice looking rushes through neutral zone, he doesn’t excel anywhere. Hasn’t been the answer on the PP, does he have much value at all anymore?”
  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: When Oilers GM Craig MacTavish said he would love to add a “stud defenseman,” it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know he was thinking of Predators Shea Weber. It would take a lot to get him. It would take the Oilers 1st round pick. The Predators would go after Jordan Eberle and Justin Schultz, and wouldn’t mind Sam Gagner. They would likely have interest in Darnell Nurse and Oscar Klefbom.
  • Jim Diamond: Don’t see it the Weber deal happening. “Surely we’ve beaten to death how dumb trading Weber after giving him so much of the up front bonus money is, right? And that is aside from him probably being the best defenseman in the league too.”
  • Bruce Arthur: “At this point, it’s possible the Oilers will be used as an argument against bottoming out for high picks for a generation.”
  • Ryan Rishaug: The Oilers send Mark Arcobello to the AHL and recall Oscar Klafbom.  Eakins told Arcobello to find a place to live in Edmonton yesterday, so he’s just caught in a roster shuffle and will be back.
  • George Richards of the Miami Herald: More moves are likely coming for the Panthers.

    “I’m not happy with the situation our team is in as far as wins and losses,” Tallon opened. “The effort has been better lately. We’re going to continue to be aggressive and make changes that are important for our franchise moving forward keeping our focus on the future.

    “We’re excited about where we’re headed, the foundation being built. We added two young pieces to an already deep foundation of players and prospects. This is a step in the right direction for the Florida Panthers.”

    “In this day and age it’s tough – especially midway through or early in a season – to make moves,” Tallon said. “You have to be aggressive, have to be creative. Now with the new CBA we can take money back. That will help future moves.”

    Versteeg indicated that defenseman Brian Campbell may like to join him in heading back to Chicago, but Campbell said he never said anything to Versteeg about wanting to go back Chicago.

  • The Fourth Period: Injuries have hit the Kings. Jonathan Quick will be out four to six weeks, Jeff Carter out another three weeks, Kyle Clifford has a concussion and Matt Green is on the IR. GM Dean Lombardi has had some talks with other teams about possible deals, but nothing appears imminent according to a source. Lombardi had been shopping Clifford and Alec Martinez, but those talks have cooled.
  • Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province: At last years trade deadline, the Canucks were after Ryane Clowe and reportedly offered their 2013 1st round pick for him. The Canucks ended up using the pick on Hunter Shinkaruk. Clowe had a no-trade clause and chose the Rangers for family reasons and because the Rangers were more likely to offer money closer to what he was looking for as a UFA. The Sharks ended up getting the Rangers 2013 2nd round pick, the Panthers 3rd round pick and 5th round pick.
  • Sam Carchidi: The Sabres haven’t contacted Flyers Ron Hextall about their GM position.

    Defenseman Matt Greene was put on the LTIR with an upper-body injury. Kyle Clifford is in Los Angeles with a head injury.

  • Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area: Sharks coach Todd McLellan indicated that Brent Burnsis still not ready to return to the lineup. Burns is skating with the team, but it’s not know when he’ll be able to return to the lineup.

    “I wish I could answer that question. There’s days where I think he’s really close, and there’s other days when you want to do some work with him and he doesn’t seem able to do it,” McLellan said. “I can’t answer that question fairly either to him, to us, or to anybody outside our team.”
