Morning Rumors III: Parenteau, Subban, Gagner, Yakupov, Stewart, Kings, Senators, Buyers and Sellers

  • Mike Chambers of the Denver Post: Avalanche’s P.A. Parenteau was a healthy scratch for the second straight game. He has two more years left at $4 million per. Rumors that the Canadiens may be willing to trade P.K. Subban for Parenteau, prospect(s) and draft picks. Coach Patrick Roy said that Parenteau is not in the doghouse, he just doesn’t want to break up the top lines and that Parenteau doesn’t fit a fourth line role.
  • David Staples of the Edmonton Journal: SportsNets Doug MacLean on whether the Oilers should trade Sam Gagner or Nail Yakupov:

    “Gagner and Yakupov have really been a real dilemma for this organization. They don’t know what to do with them. -29 for Yakupov. Talented kid. You know he’s going to score a lot of goals in the NHL before he’s done. Gagner, solid, solid. People don’t know if he’s a #2 or a #3 (centre).

    “Here’s the problem. You got to stay with these guys. You’re not going to get value (in a trade). It’s disappointing the way they’ve performed, but you are not going to get value. So stay with them.”

    It was brought up that the Oilers need to get bigger, tougher. MacLean agreed, but added:

     ”You bring in complementary guys to play with them. I’ve said it for years. You take their Top Six, and you make it a Top Nine because you fill in with quality 2-way guys. But if you start trading these guys, you are not getting value and you got a disaster on your hands.”

  • Craig Custance: Some GMs are more interested in making ‘hockey trades’ and than ‘rental trades.’ Blues Chris Stewart is an intriguing name but he carries a $4.15 million salary cap hit next season.
  • Dennis Bernstein: The Kings are looking for a left winger and a defenseman. At this point, they would have to overpay to get either.
    Frank Provenzano of ESPNPotential SellersNashville Predators - David Legwand, Matt Cullen, Colin Wilson and Ryan Ellis. Washington Capitals - Troy Brouwer, Joel Ward, Jason Chimera, Eric Fehr and Martin Erat. Winnipeg Jets - Dustin Byfuglien, Evander Kane, Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi. Potential BuyersTampa Bay Lightning - roster depth. Colorado Avalanche - Top-four defenseman. St. Louis Blues - Stanley Cup caliber goalie.
  • James Pagnall of the Ottawa Citizen: The Senators have new TV deal in place the could bring in between $20 and $30 million over the next 12 years. Senators owner Eugene Melnyk:

    “This puts us on a solid footing,” Melnyk said in reference to the broadcasting deals. “We are going to be competitive in spending on players. If I need to spend an extra $2 million to $3 million (on unrestricted free agents) to make the playoffs, it’s a no-brainer. I’ll do it.”

    “We’re still going to spend wisely,” he said, suggesting he does not intend to shell out the maximum permitted under salary cap rules.

    “Just because you have extra money in your pocket, doesn’t mean you go out and spend it,” he said. His philosophy of patiently — and inexpensively — developing raw talent remains front and centre in the Senators organization.

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators president Cyril Leeder on their $400 million broadcaster deal with Bell Media.

    “It allows you to get in there and duke it out with the big guys,” Leeder told the Sun. “When you have a strong base of revenues from your corporate partners and your fanbase, that makes you stronger.

    “It allows you to compete with (teams like) Toronto, New York and Vancouver.”

    The Senators are currently 26th in spending, ahead of only the Flames, Avalanche, Islanders and Panthers.

Morning Rumors: Panthers, Predators, Leafs, Habs, Hurricanes, Canucks, Jets, Sabres, Oilers, Ducks, Pens and Islanders

  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC: The Avalanche and Panthers did have serious talks about Dmitry Kulikov, and may do so again.

    Panthers Tim Thomas could be a trade deadline target. He has a no-movement clause in his contract.

    Predators GM David Poile on if they are ready to see what they could get for some of their players: “No, we just have to start winning some games.” Names that have been mentioned by other teams are Matt Cullen and David Legwand.

    Contract talks between the Maple Leafs and Dion Phaneuf were to take place at some point this week.

    There was a real attempt by the Canadiens and P.K. Subban to find some common ground.

    The Hurricanes will go with three goalies until they decide what to do with one of Cam Ward, Anton Khudobin or Justin Peters.

    After three wins, Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford has pulled back on his trade hunt. Defenseman Michael Del Zotto and Jake Gardiner are players up his alley, but the Rangers and Maple Leafs don’t want to take on salary.

    Friedman wonders how many GMs called the Canucks about Alex Edler have coach John Tortorella chewed him out.

    Jets Evander Kane’s contract makes him extremely valuable with the cap going up.

    The Sabres could use a compliance buyout on Ville Leino in the offseason. They now know what the market is for Ryan Miller after Henrik Lundqvist’s signing. Coach Ted Nolan would like to see Miller stay.

    Oilers coach Dallas Eakin’s said he considered using forward David Perron on defense in late game 5-on-5 situations if the Oilers need offense.

  • The Fourth Period: Contract talks between the Maple Leafs and Dion Phaneuf’s camp are expected to pick up this week if they haven’t already. It was reported in late October that he was looking to get around $7 million a year in a new deal. It is uncertain if the Maple Leafs would be willing to accept a $7+ million deal.
  • Dennis Bernstein: “Ducks G Jonas Hiller now 12-4-4, only goalie on roster with playoff experience and they should trade him because……”
  • James Mirtle: One interesting name that may be available is Panthers Shawn Matthias. If the Leafs are looking to change up their forward mix, he is big and can play center.
  • Bucky Gleason: Sabres coach Ted Nolan is committed to fixing Tyler Myers and Drew Stafford. Ryan Miller is integral to the Sabres, either by re-signing him or by trading him to acquire assets. Nobody is untouchable in Buffalo. Steve Ott and Matt Moulson will be UFAs at the season and could be gone before the end of the season. Gleason thinks the Sabres need to package some of the draft picks they’ve stockpiled and acquire top-line talent they lost when they traded them away.
  • Craig Custance of ESPN: Penguins Brooks Orpik is their only top four defenseman that doesn’t have a deal for next season.

    “We’ll see,” Shero said, when asked about what that means for a potential Orpik deal. “We’ll sit down and talk about it internally and see where we are. Who knows? Players might see where the cap might be, [and say] ‘I might just wait it out and see what happens.’”

  • Hope Smoke: Dreger: “I see the Blues going all in for a goalie like Miller at the trade deadline. They ordained Halak the #1 but that’s just mind games.”
  • Brett Cyrgalis of the NY Post: Source said that GM Garth Snow does not perceive that head coach Jack Capuano is the problem with the Islanders and won’t be fired any time soon.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: “Islander management does not believe that coaching has anything to do with their struggles this season” … “Like most  GM’s Snow is eager to make a change. He’s looking for a top 2-3 defenseman. Not easy to get those pieces”

Free Agent Hits II: Clarkson, Horton, Stalberg, Red Wings, Flyers, Jets and offer sheets

  • Darren Dreger: Little doubt that David Clarkson a seven year deal, and some GMs are thinking he’ll get $6 million plus.
  • Bob McKenzie: McKenzie thinks that Clarkson will end up with a Canadian team. He’s visited the Oilers, Senators and Maple Leafs. He also visited the Blue Jackets.
  • David Pagnotta: The Blue Jackets have been busy. They met with Nathan Horton, David Clarkson and others.
  • Will DePaoli: The Red Wings interest in Jarome Iginla is just preliminary at this point as they are a finalist for Daniel Alfredsson.
  • Sam Carchidi via sulia: Carchidi thinks that the Flyers should pass on left winger Simon Gagne and go after Viktor Stalberg. Would be perfect on a line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read.
  • Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: Five possible targets for the Jets: Clarke MacArthur, Damien Brunner, Viktor Stalberg, Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Nathan Gerbe.
  • Ansar Khan: Free agent options for the Red Wings: Mikhail Grabovski, Stephen Weiss (primary target), Mike Ribeiro and Matt Cullen.
  • Frank Seravalli: Flyers may not want to trade defenseman Braydon Coburn, but he’s their best trade chip. Seravalli wonders if they’d have interest in Jaromir Jagr again. Will the Flyers be tempted with offer sheets for Alex Pietrangelo, Travis Hamonic or Jonathan Bernier?
  • Bob McKenzie: McKenzie wonders if there will be offer sheets. The salary cap going down and teams are not able to stash money in the minors, some teams may be vulnerable.
  • Darren Dreger: There is already talks about offer sheets from teams with cap space: Alex Pietrangelo, Zach Bogosian, Brian Little, Josh Baily, Adam Henrique and Travis Hamonic.

  • Jim Matheson: Hearing Stephen Weiss is looking for $6 million year.
  • Aaron Ward: David Clarkson met with the Oilers in Edmonton yesterday.
  • Craig Custance: The Red Wings are one of about six teams in on Valtteri Filppula. David Pagnotta: Filppula getting a lot of interest. Going to have a tough choice.
  • Pierre LeBrun: It’s looking like Ray Emery will be moving on from the Blackhawks. He’s looking for a No. 1 or No. 1A role. The Flyers could be the frontrunners.
  • Darren Dreger: Paul Ranger hasn’t ruled out returning to the NHL. Unlikely to decide by tomorrow. Many teams will be interested.
  • David Pagnotta: The Stars will be out of the Tyler Bozak running after adding Seguin, Peverley and Horcoff yesterday.

Afternoon Hits II: Schneider, Leafs, Bruins, Canucks, Red Wings and Kuba

  • Bill Watters: “Schneider ‘s exit from Vancouver was precipitated by off ice issues,rather than goaltending and financial as outlined in Gillis’ rationale.”
  • The Fourth Period: The Maple Leafs plan on being active in the next few days. They are looking for a top line center and a top-six winger. The Leafs are looking at UFAs Stephen Weiss and David Clarkson. Weiss could be looking for a five year worth $5 million a season. Various reports have Clarkson looking for upwards of $6 million a year, which might be too much for the Leafs. The Leafs are shopping Mikhail Grabovski and John-Michael Liles.
  • Pierre LeBrun: After originally deciding to cut ties with Jaromir Jagr, GM Peter Chiarelli said he’s thought about circling back to him after Nathan Horton said he’s leaving.
  • The Fourth Period: Bruins GM Chiarelli is working on a couple of trades. He’s believed to be looking to move Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly to free up some cap space. The Bruins are close to signing Tuukka Rask and Patrice Bergeron to long term extensions. Chiarelli has already had a conversation with Daniel Briere and could inquire about David Clarkson.
  • Mike Halford of Pro Hockey Talk: Keith Ballard’s agent, Ben Hankinson, went on Vancouver radio this morning and said the Canucks bought out the two remaining years of his contract. According to CapGeek, the Canucks now have $7.4 million in cap space.
  • Brad Ziemer: The Canucks have seven roster spots to fill, and the re-signing of Chris Tanev won’t come cheap.
  • Ansar Khan of MLive: The Red Wings have interest in Stephen Weiss. It’s not looking like Valtteri Filppula will be returning. The Wings had interest in David Clarkson, but have cooled lately. Nathan Horton may be asking too much for them. There are concerns whether or not Jarome Iginla can play the up-tempo game at both ends. Their biggest need is a second line center. Options could be Mike Ribeiro (Washington), Matt Cullen (Minnesota), Derek Roy (Vancouver) and Tyler Bozak (Toronto). Other forwards that might interest them: Michael Ryder (Montreal), Viktor Stalberg (Chicago), Mason Raymond (Vancouver), Brenden Morrow (Pittsburgh), Ryane Clowe (Rangers) and Jaromir Jagr (Boston).
  • Bob McKenzie: The Florida Panthers are buying out defenseman Filip Kuba. They are not using a compliance buyout, so it will count against the cap.

  • Pierre LeBrun: Kris Letang’s agent, Kent Hughes and Penguins GM Ray Shero are expected to meet this afternoon.

Free Agent Rumors: Letang, Bobrovsky, Panthers, Bruins, Lecavalier, Lundqvist, Bickell, Wild, Stars and Ott

  • Will DePaoli: Kris Letang talks haven’t been shut down and the team will circle back one more time. Rob Rossi: The Penguins are willing to go “around” $7 million a season for 8 years.
  • Aaron Portzline: Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen and Sergei Bobrovsky’s agent talked on Wednesday and Thursday in New York. Indications arethat the talks did not go well at all and there are no further plans to talk. Both are in New York so it could happen.
  • Harvey Fialkov: The Panthers will let Stephen Weiss, Jose Theodore and Tyson Strachan test the free agent market next week.
  • Joe Haggerty of CSNNE: If the Bruins aren’t able to re-sign Nathan Horton, who is reportedly looking for a 5-6 year deal worth around $6 million a season, there are a couple options. Jarome Iginla and David Clarkson could be two options. A source said that Vincent Lecavalier could be an option to play on right side rather than his natural center position.
  • L.A. Lariviere: Vinny Lecavalier would prefer to stay in the Eastern Conference. Ready to listen to the Canadiens. Pierre LeBrun: Lecavalier can’t sign a deal until July 5th but his is allow to talk with teams.
  • Jim Matheson: No chance the Oilers will sign Lecavalier. He’ll sign with an Eastern Conference team.
  • Bob McKenzie: The Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist’s reps started contract extension talks last night in New York.
  • Pierre LeBrun: The Blackhawks and Bryan Bickell’s side have started contract talks the past couple days.
  • Bob McKenzie: The Wild are talking contract extension with the Cal Clutterbuck. They are also talking trades with him. Pierre-Marc Bouchard (UFA) won’t be brought back and Matt Cullen most likely won’t be back.
  • Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: Possible center free agent targets for the Stars: Vincent Lecavalier, Stephen Weiss, Tyler Bozak, Daniel Briere, Valtteri Filppula, Derek Roy and Mike Ribeiro.
  • Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times: Bryan Bickell could get a deal around $3 million, but he’s said something are more important than money and could take a bit of hometown discount.

    “You’ve got to do what makes you happy,” he said. “I know there are a lot of good teams around this league, and a lot of teams you won’t have as much fun [with] as if I stayed here. This is a great city, I enjoy it here, I got drafted here, this is a second home to me. We’re going to work on something, and hopefully it works out for the best.”

Stars talked about trading up, undecided on Bachman … Penguins careful with Dupuis … Nonis talks Leafs

  • Mark Stepneski: The Stars have the 10th overall pick in the draft and have held discussions to move up, but the price hasn’t been right.

    “We’re looking at all options,” said Nill. “I talked to a team today about the possibility of trading up and the price was so high that it made it easy to say, ‘That’s OK, you go ahead and do what you need to do.’ I’ve heard that from a couple of teams. We’re ready; we know what we have to do. We’re open to all options.”

    There has been no decision yet on whether they’ll re-sign goaltender Richard Bachman.

    “He’s in the mix,” Stars GM Jim Nill said of Bachman. “We’ve talked to other teams. Our job this time of year is trying to find the best we can and Bachman is in that mix. We’re just going through our process to see what else is out there.”

  • Will DePaoli of Inside Pittsburgh Sports: The Penguins are not big fans of handing three – four year deals to players in their mid 30′s. The 34-year old Pascal Dupuis is looking for a three – year deal, and the Penguins will have to keep Chris Kunitz in mind when dealing with Dupuis according to sources. Kunitz will be 34 next season, the last year of his deal. The Penguins have discussed internally what a three – four year deal at $3.5 – $4 million for Dupuis could mean for Kunitz negotiations. The Pens may be looking for $3.25-$3.5 million and not going beyond three years. The Penguins will begin talks with Kunitz this summer. Jarome Iginla’s agent, Don Meehan, has had no talks with Penguins. The Penguins may be offering Kris Letang a full no-trade clause on a deal five years or less. Letang prefers a max eight year deal with full no trade but could be open to a five or six year deal.
  • James Mirtle: Leafs GM Dave Nonis has four unrestricted and six restricted free agents to deal with.

    “I can’t stress this enough: The cap is coming down,” Nonis said when asked about stalled talks with centre Tyler Bozak, talks which CBC’s Elliotte Friedman reported this week weren’t going all that well. “It’s the first time in history that it’s come down, and we have to make sure we’re spending our money wisely.

    “Not to just retain all the players you have but be in a position where you can try to get a different piece or two. We have to make sure if we’re spending a significant amount of money and term on players that they line up [with what we want to spend] and that it makes sense for us.”

    If the Leafs buyout Mike Komisarek, they could have $22 million in salary cap space. Their RFAs could eat $10-$11 million of that.

    “You never know what’s going to become available in terms of player movement. Even if there’s a player [on your team] that may be bought out, there’s always potential for money moving back and forth in deals. So we’re not at that point of making a decision yet.

    “It’s my experience you never know what’s going to happen. You don’t know what other teams are thinking or what players might be available. So for us to make that decision on a compliance buyout or two until we actually have to – it doesn’t make sense to do it.”

    If talks with Tyler Bozak don’t go well, they’ll look to other option at center. Some potential UFAs are: Mike Ribeiro, Derek Roy, Stephen Weiss, Matt Cullen, Valtteri Filppula, Daniel Briere and Boyd Gordon.

NHL Rumors III: Garrioch Roundup – Eastern Conference

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Top five Eastern Conference players that could be available: Marian Gaborik, Mark Streit, Mike Ribeiro, Jason Pominville and Robyn Regehr.

Team Trade Deadline Outlooks

Boston Bruins – The Bruins have the cap room and are looking to bring in an impact forward. They’ll go after Brenden Morrow or Jarome Iginla.

Buffalo Sabres – If GM Darcy Regier is going to be in charge of the rebuild, he’s got a lot of work to do. The word is they want to trade captain Jason Pominville. Drew Stafford and Ryan Miller will be mentioned in trade talk.

Carolina Hurricanes - There is talk they may talk to the Senators about Ben Bishop. They were looking to add a defenseman. Both Joe Corvo and Jamie McBain are available.

Florida Panthers – GM Dale Tallon is ready to sell, but they’ve been hit with injuries. Tomas Fleischmann is available. Jose Theodore could bring a team some goalie depth.

Montreal Canadiens – They would like to add a veteran defenseman and maybe Ryane Clowe. The Canadiens could use a little more grit.

New Jersey Devils – GM Lou Lamoriello has been looking for a top-six forward. They don’t have a lot to trade, and with the NHL in New Jersey this year, they may not want to trade their first round pick.

New York Islanders – GM Garth Snow has trade assets in Mark Streit, Lubomir Visnovsky and Evgeni Nabokov. They would like to re-sign all three. Streit is being coveted by several teams.

New York Rangers – They’ve been trying to do something for weeks. They’ve dangled Marian Gaborik. John Tortorella could be in trouble if they miss the playoffs.

Ottawa Senators – GM Bryan Murray may look to add a top-six forward. Matt Cullen would be an option. Players that could be traded are Peter Regin, Colin Greening and Ben Bishop.

Philadelphia Flyers – They’ve held talks with the Flames about Jay Bouwmeester. Some wonder if they would dangle Sean Couturier because he could help land a Pronger replacement.

Pittsburgh Penguins – The Penguins would like to add one more scorer. Iginla could be a fit. A shut-down defenseman would be a nice addition too.

Tampa Bay Lightning – Anyone but Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman could be had at the right price. It may be more of a quick re-tooling compared to a Yzerman trying to unload players. Martin St. Louis is a possibility.

Toronto Maple Leafs – Garrioch wonders if the Leafs will finally go after a goalie as James Reimer and Ben Scrivens have come back to earth. They’ve been linked to Jonathan Bernier and Roberto Luongo.

Washington Capitals – Mike Ribeiro, Troy Brouwer, Jason Chimera and Joel Ward are available.

Winnipeg Jets – They were trying to trade Ron Hainsey, but he’s been valuable and playing big minutes. Alex Burmistrov has been in the doghouse. They may be looking to add over looking to sell.
