NHL Rumors: Oilers and Lightning

  • Bruce McCurdy of the Edmonton Journal: Oilers Jordan Eberle’s name tends to appear in trade talk on blogs/twitter/radio.

    “He’s the guy with established value” the argument goes, “he’s the one that could be the centrepiece of the deal that lands us that top pairing defenceman [Oliver Ekman-Larsson or P.K. Subban frequently cited here] or that big #2 centre  [ditto Sean Couturier]. Nail Yakupov will/might score more than Ebs in the future, but has lower market value today.”

    McCurdy thinks that Eberle will remain with the Oilers.

  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: ”I’m not going 6 years at $6 plus for Callahan. What I’m doing is asking his agent where does he want to go? Give me three teams” … ”I then talk to those three teams at the draft and try to get a player for his rights” … ”Callahan will get paid, somebody paid Ville Leino a billion dollars to not score. What an embarrassment”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”Respectfully to Drouin, if there is a mulligan on last year’s draft Yzerman and Co probably take Seth Jones” … ”Do I think Jones would have an impactful change on this series? No I don’t. He’s still a developing player” … ”Seth Jones in this [Tampa Bay] lineup moving forward would have made a huge impact

NHL Rumors: Predators, Canucks, Hurricanes, Oilers and the Maple Leafs

  • Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: Ranking potential Predators coaching candidates: 1. Peter Laviolette 2. Phil Housley 3. Terry Murray 4. Dean Evason 5. John Stevens 6. Willie Desjardins 7. Dan Bylsma
  • Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province: To get more a more experienced goalie that Eddie Lack or Jacob Markstrom, the Canucks would could spend some big money on someone like Ryan Miller or Jonas Hiller. Miller could re-sign with the Blues. You would be taking a chance on Hiller that he could bounce back to form. Signing Miller would basically cap the Canucks out and would limit their ability to improve their forward lines. Bruins backup Chad Johnson would be a lot cheaper and they could try for a short-term deal at a low dollar amount, with the lure of being able to compete for the No. 1 job.
  • Dmitry Chesnokov of Yahoo! Sports: Hurricanes Anton Khudobin thinks that Cam Ward’s time with the Hurricanes could be over.

    “Of course he is a strong goaltender. He is a good goaltender. No one is counting him out. They [Carolina] will decide what to do with him this year, this summer. Maybe he, how can I say, has presented everything he could have,” said Khudobin at a Russian National Team press conference on Monday.

    “Maybe at this club. Maybe in his career. He has been playing in the NHL since he was 19,” said Khudobin.

  • Jason Gregor: “Not sure why people think the #Oilers will let Lander go. Easy decision to offer him new contract. They have very little fwd depth.”
  • Chip Alexander: Can expect an announcement from Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford early next week. Ron Francis is said to be in Finland this week.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”No real update on Carlyle right now. I’m sure there’s ample dialogue between Shanahan & Nonis at the moment” … ”It may take two weeks or maybe more before the Leafs announce a decision on Carlyle.” … ”Although many of us have speculated that a coaching change in TO was likely, certainly a possibility, there is no guarantee of that”
  • Hope Smoke: Steve Simmons: ”My breakdown is that Nonis would like to stay with Carlyle & Leiweke wants him fired. Nothing will happen until 1st round is over”

NHL Rumors: Spezza, Yandle, Del Zotto, Stastny, Richards and Belov

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators will likely shop center Jason Spezza this offseason. If they don’t get the pieces they want for him, they won’t trade him for the sake of trading him. Spezza does have a no-trade clause. Source saying that in July of 2012, Spezza had to submit a list of 10 teams that he didn’t want to be traded too. Senators GM Bryan Murray.

    “He’s our captain, at this point, he has a year left on his contract. We’ll see where we go with him,” said Murray in his post-season availability last Tuesday.

    Spezza has one year left with a cap hit of $7 million but a salary of $4 million. The Sens don’t have any plans to sign him to a contract extension at this time. SportsNet’s Doug MacLean cautioned the Senators if they want to trade him.

    “There’s some things you have to look at before this deal,” said MacLean during a break in the Montreal-Tampa series last week. “No. 1 is somebody ready to replace the points. Like him or not, he’s still an 80-point scorer in the league.

    “That’s the challenge. Is (Mika) Zibanejad capable of stepping into that spot and picking up some of that slack? They like him a lot and they’d like to see him move up the lineup but is that taking a step back?

    “It’s fine to say we want to say goodbye to (Spezza) but you’ve got to have people who can replace him essentially.”

  • Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic: Coyotes Keith Yandle’s name has been in the rumor mill for past two years. He has two years left with a $5.25 million salary cap hit. Trade talk is likely to continue.

    “Like I’ve always said, it’s a good thing if teams are wanting you and I think it’s when teams don’t want you you’ve gotta be a little bit worried,” Yandle said. “For me, it’s been so long that I’ve gotten a little immune to it.”

    “Coming into July 1 and obviously the draft and stuff like that, you look at your team,” Yandle said. “You want us to get better, and you want to go out and get free agents and draft well, obviously. But you never know what’s going to happen, and that’s the nature of the business.”

  • Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: Predators pending RFA Michael Del Zotto.

    “I have no idea what’s going to happen,” he said this week. “Obviously I’m not too happy with how this year has gone for me. I have high expectations for myself, and being traded here I wanted to prove I could play to the best of my ability and how I had in the past. We’ll see what happens this summer and just take it one day at a time.”

    Del Zotto is coming off a two year, $5.1 million deal. It seems unlikely that the Predators wouldn’t bring him back.

  • Michael Kelly of the Star Tribune: Avs Paul Stastny was getting anxious at the trade deadline about the possibility that he would be traded.

    “To me it was kind of a sign of confidence that they want me and I’m an important piece,” Stastny said. “For a couple of days you think about it; it’s hard not to. We have such a good group of guys. They see that.”

    The Avs didn’t really have any plans to trade him.

    “Honestly, it was not even close for us to move Paulie,” Roy said. “We said all along we didn’t want rental players.”

    Coach Patrick Roy hopes the pending UFA will remain with the team.

    “We believe Paul wants to stay as an Avalanche next year and we think there’s a good chance he can sign with us,” Roy said. “How it happens, that will be up to [executive vice president] Joe [Sakic] and [Matt Keator, Stastny’s] agent to discuss. I think Paul has the Avs in his heart, he loves to be in this town and he loves these fans.”

  • Dennis Bernstein: Kings Mike Richards needs to have a good playoffs to remain with the team.
  • Igor Eronko: Anton Belov on why he left the Oilers for SKA of the KHL: “Didn’t want to play under that coach”

NHL Rumors I: Weber, Kesler, Edler, Reimer, Tavares and Ward

  • Nashville Predators: Predators GM David Poile said that Shea Weber will definitely be in Nashville next season.
  • Ben Kuzma: Canucks Ryan Kesler: ”I didn’t ask for a trade. It’s best to keep that in house. Not going to comment — it’s not right.” Farhan Lalji: Kesler wouldn’t comment  on the rumors of “a list” that he provided to Canucks management.
  • Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun: There is talk that Canucks Alex Edler could be asked to waive his no-trade clause this offseason. He has five years at $5 million a season left on his deal. Edler would like to stay in Vancouver.
  • Toronto Sun: Pending RFA James Reimer is unsure on his future.

    “The hockey world is a crazy place. This has been my team and I have really enjoyed it, and it has been a huge blessing. I always dreamed this would be the organization that I stay with my whole career, so we will see what happens.”

    If Reimer wants a trade, speculated landing spots could be the Jets, Flames, Islanders and Oilers.

  • Arthur Staple of Newsday: Islanders John Tavares doesn’t want to leave the team despite recent rumblings.

    “I signed six years because I wanted to be here. There’s no part of me that wants to leave,” Tavares told Newsday during Monday’s breakup day. “I think [the talk] is a product of the team not winning, and the perception around here from other markets is always a lot different from what actually happens. I know we’ve still got some great things we can accomplish here and my mindset hasn’t changed.”

    “I’m excited to come back next year and I’ve always loved being here.”

  • Michael Smith: Hurricanes Cam Ward and his family consider Raleigh home: ”I want to be here.”

NHL Rumors II: Maple Leafs, Capitals, Predators, Selanne, Spezza, Byfuglien and Giguere

  • Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star: If the Maple Leafs fire Randy Carlyle, some coaches that they may be interested in: Mike Keenan, John Hynes (Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins head coach), Peter Laviolette and Kevin Dineen. The Leafs have $49 million committed to 12 players next season, leaving about $22 million for 11 more players. Low cost players like Petter Granberg, Andrew MacWilliam, Jerry D’Amigo and Spencer Abbott could be used. That would leave about $18 million for eight players. UFAs: Dave Bolland, Nikolai Kulemin, Jay McClement, Mason Raymond, Troy Bodie and Paul Ranger. RFAs: James Reimer, Cody Franson, Jake Gardiner, Peter Holland, Carter Ashton, D’Amigo and Abbott. The Leafs could use their RFAs as trade bait. Reimer is likely gone, especially if Randy Carlyle stays. Gardiner may want $3 million a year, and could be used as trade bait for a top center.
  • Kevin Allen of USA Today: Capitals owner Ted Leonsis may not bring GM George McPhee and coach Adam Oates back. Leonsis must also look at Alex Ovechkin, is he part of the solution or part of the problem? Do they look to see if a new coach could change him or look to move him out?

    It’s hard to see John Tortorella returning to the Canucks.

    Randy Carlyle will likely be fired by Maple Leafs. The Leafs appear to be ready to make some major moves this offseason, with Nazem Kadri possibly the center piece of a deal.

    The Predators may look at firing coach Barry Trotz. He won’t be out of work long if they let him go.

  • Chris Johnston: “I would not be surprised to see Teemu Selanne return to the NHL next year. In Sochi, he made it clear that he still has more to give.”
  • Sens Chirp: TSNs Brent Wallace on whether Jason Spezza will be back with the Senators next year, “probably not.”
  • Ken Wiebe: Jets coach Paul Maurice said that Dustin Byfuglien will start next year at forward.
  • Lisa Hillary: When asked if last night’s game against the Ducks would be his last regular season game, Avs J.S. Giguere said: ”Well I have flown in my family for the game.” Eric Stephens: When talking with Giguere a few weeks ago, Giguere said it’s most certainly it for him. Didn’t want it to get out there.
  • David Pagnotta: Sabres coach Ted Nolan: ”I’m a strong believer in laying a foundation… Timmy and I will have a good chance to reevaluate what we’ve got (this off-season).”

NHL Rumors III: Predators, Senators, Oilers, Capitals and Rangers

  • The Fourth Period: The Predators will be looking at add another dynamic goal-scorer this offseason. The Preds may look at the trade route rather through free agency. They could dangle Colin Wilson and Ryan Ellis again. They could go big and look at moving Shea Weber. Sources saying that management may be concerned about the bonus payments in Weber’s contract. Weber is due $13 million on July 1st and will receive lesser bonuses in for the next three years.
  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators coach Paul MacLean will be on the hotseat. GM Bryan Murray wouldn’t give MacLean a vote of confidence a couple weeks ago when he was on TSN 1200. The Senators will also have decisions on Jason Spezza. The Ducks and Blues were interested at the trade deadline. He’ll be a UFA at end of next season and has a no-trade clause. A league executive:

     ”Maybe they need to put better players around him. Weren’t they looking for a winger to play with Spezza all year? Perhaps Ales Hemsky is the guy.”

  • Chris Nichols: Oilers Craig MacTavish on SportsNet during intermission on Tuesday.

    “I think my mandate really when I came in as manager was try to turn the team over to the group of players that I really feel, and the organization feels, has to lead us out of this malaise that we’ve been in the last number of years. And what I’ve seen out of that line of Taylor Hall, Nugent-Hopkins, and Jordan Eberle tells me that we’re going to have a pretty dynamic first line.

    “And now we’ve got to find the pieces to make a very solid second line. I think that’ll be a primary focus of mine going into the off-season.”

    On potentially drafting Leon Draisaitl or Aaron Ekblad:

    “Well, I think both areas are areas of need for our hockey club and we’d be fortunate to get any one of those players that you mentioned. I don’t currently have a real preference one way or the other. We’ll see how the draft lottery unfolds, where we’re picking, what’s available and then we’ll be better served to make that decision.”

  • Hope Smoke: Nick Kypreos “NY had every intention of bringing back Torts but then 4-5 guys on that Rangers team said not so fast”

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 I: Canucks, Bruins, Maple Leafs, Penguins and Coaching Hotseat

  • Pierre LeBrun: Hearing that changes with the Canucks could happen as soon as today or tomorrow.
  • Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe: The Bruins will have a bonus overage penalty next season and have some RFA and UFA that will be needing new deals. They have $62 million already committed for next season. The Bruins may have trouble re-signing Jarome Iginla to a mulit-year contract. Would Iginla take a one-year deal from the Bruins? Bonuses are not allowed to be included in multi-year deals for players over 35.
  • James Mirtle: Dave Bolland is wanting to become the Maple Leafs highest paid center. Mirtle doesn’t think the Leafs should bring Bolland back on an expensive long-term deal with his bad ankle and battered body.
  • Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: The Penguins and pending UFA Brooks Orpik are keeping their plans quiet. Orpik:

    “That’s something Ray and I agreed we wouldn’t talk about in the media. We’ll just let it play out and see what happens.”

  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: ”I don’t like Bolland at $5 million dollars. If that’s what he wants I let him go and replace him with someone else” … ”Say you’re paying Holland $1 mill and Bolland $5 something. Is Bolland $4 million better? Use that money to fix the D

Coaching Hotseat:

  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”I think Trotz’s time has come in NSH. Sense is he can feel it. There is a mood around office that coaches can sense”
  • Hope Smoke: Dreger: ”I think McPhee is just as likely to go as Oates. Could see full scale change in WSH”
  • Hope Smoke: Dreger: ”I would look at Bylsma. If Pitt were to go out with a whimper I think Byslma could be vulnerable there”
  • Hope Smoke: Dreger: ”I think Carlyle’s job is obviously in jeopardy. Can’t go through this type of disappointment without that happening.” … ”If Carlyle loses his job I’m sure there will be some teams that will have some interest”
  • Hope Smoke: ”I believe Maurice is the man for Wpg.”

  • Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe: The Bruins will have about a  $4.5 million salary cap penalty next season for bonus overages for Jarome Iginla, Dougie Hamilton and Torey Krug.

  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: John Tortorella won’t be back as the Canucks coach unless ownership chooses him over GM Mike Gillis. Tortorella may be spreading word that Jay Feaster is a GM that he could work with.

NHL Rumors: Brodeur, Maple Leafs FAs and Coaches, and Jones

  • Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: Martin Brodeur is “80 percent sure” that he’ll play next season and hasn’t ruled out remaining with the Devils.

    “I’m not closing (the door) here at all,” Brodeur told The Star-Ledger. “It will be a decision I’ll make after offers are brought to me. It might be July 1st or it might be way after July 1st.

    “It all depends on what is on the table, whether it’s in New Jersey or somewhere else. I’m open-minded about it. I’m looking for specific things some teams probably can’t give me. And that’s understandable at my age. But if I feel I can play and people want me, we’ll see.”

    Brodeur’s requirements:

    “I’m not going to sit more than I sit this year. That’s not something I want,” Brodeur said. “If I come back, it’s not a question of money. It’s because I still love it and I still enjoy the game.

    “And I want to be in a position to have another shot (at winning), no matter what role I’m in. To me it would seem empty to leave without having a chance of winning something. Hopefully it will be this year and that will change a lot about my decision and what I’m going to do in my future.”

  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: “When you look at the 4 UFAs that the Leafs will key on are Bolland, McClement, Kulemin & Raymond” … “Bolland still identifies for me the identity that this team will play with.” … “It’s up to Bolland does he chase the dollars that will pay him $5 million elsewhere? That’s up to him” … “The only given that stays of those 4 UFAs is McClement and that’s only if Carlyle stays because of the appreciation RC has for him”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: “How do you replace a man like Carlyle? Is there anyone better out there than Carlyle? Are Trotz or Laviolette better than him?” … “Do the Leafs look at Steve Spott or Luke Richardson? Those are drastic moves”
  • Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: Predators Seth Jones thinks he could be ready to return on Friday.

    “It’s a process. You think you’re good, and the brain will tell you otherwise sometimes,” Jones said. “There are steps that are required to come back and I’m kind of in the midst of those right now.”
