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.

NHL Rumors: Sedin’s, Reimer, Pavelec, Brassard, Grabovski, Bolland and Islanders Sale

  • Adam Proteau of The Hockey News: Proteau thinks the Canucks should look to trade Daniel and Henrik Sedin, as well as Ryan Kesler for the best deals they can get. The Sedin’s will be 34 at the start of next season and are signed through 2018.
  • Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: Wiebe wonders if the Jets would target Maple Leafs pending RFA James Reimer this offseason. The Jets could buyout the remaining three years of Ondrej Pavelec’s deal or attempt to trade him, while retaining some of the salary.
  • Renaud Lavoie: The Senators are trying to trade the rights to goalie Francois Brassard. If they can’t move him, he’ll go back into the draft.
  • Igor Eronko: Mikhail Grabovski’s dad said that contract extension talks are “at the final stage.”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”I don’t think Nonis is contemplating 7-8 years @ $5. Bozak’s group was looking for similar last year” … ”Leafs need to start putting squeeze on Bolland like Leafs did with Bozak. Difference is, Bolland is a 3rd line C” … ”Leafs have boxed themselves in a bit with the Clarkson deal. If money isn’t fit in Toronto, then good on him. Find it elsewhere” … ”If you’re going to identify your core and pay your core then the Leafs better damn have a coach willing to play the young/cheap guys” … ”I think it will come down to Bolland v Kadri. Problem is you don’t have a crystal ball knowing where Kadri will be in 2 years” … ”We know what Bolland is. He’s proven that in Chicago and he is solid on and off the ice. If you’re asking me? I choose Bolland” … ”If you deem Kadri can’t become the guy who pushes Bozak at that top line C then you get value for him now”
  • Chris Botta of the Sports Business Daily: Islanders may be valued at $370 million according to a financial industry source. Owner Charles Wang has been in talks with Andrew Barroway, but the group may be currently short on funds. The group is looking to raise another $30 to $50 million. There is one scenario that could see Wang remaining the majority owner, with Barroway’s group owning between 30 and 49 percent by this summer. They would start taking on more ownership in future season.

Morning Rumors: Capitals, Halak, Jets, Reimer and the Maple Leafs

  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: There have been no contract talks between the Capitals and Jaroslav Halak’s camp, and there won’t be until the season is over.

    “We’re not going to approach those discussions until the end of the season,” Walsh said. “It makes absolutely no sense to be talking when a team is on the cusp of making the playoffs and trying to make the playoffs. It’s just not the right time.”

  • Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press: Lawless looks at the Jets goaltending situation. There are questions about Ondrej Pavelec and Al Montoya. Montoya is a pending UFA. Pavelec has three years left at $3.9 million per. Ryan Miller, Jonas Hiller and Jaroslav Halak are pending UFA, but would be expensive and they would have to clear some salary to bring them in.  Manitoba native James Reimer could interest the Jets. Reimer’s SV% and GAA are slightly better then Pavelec’s, and he could be available this summer.
  • Hope Smoke: Pierre LeBrun: ”There’s still a chance Reimer comes back next year. The Leafs are still comfortable with this duo” … ”We expected this tension from Reimer earlier in the year” … ”Between the Leafs coaching staff & mgmt they don’t believe Reimer can lead them to the promise land. They just don’t” … ”Reimer is an interesting guy. He’s very likeable. That night against Det was a microcosm of what the Leafs feel about him” … ”Against Det Reimer was good and kept the Leafs in the game, but just couldn’t steal the game. They don’t feel he can win them games”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”I think there are probably more GMs that felt Reimer was a #1 G Last summer than they do now”
  • Hope Smoke: Pierre LeBrun: ”I think the Leafs will be ultra aggressive this summer to address their blueline they need a top 4 guy. Loom for size in top 6 too”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”This summer is a drop-dead date for Kadri and Bolland long-term in Toronto. Not an absolute drop-dead date here”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”I think Holland could be a good player if used but Carlyle would prefer to play McClement than him” … ”They’re in the market for a better C and a top 4 D. If they need to use Kadri or Gardiner as currency for that they would”

Morning Rumors: Jets, Sabres, Caps, Sens, Sharks, Blues, Canadiens, Avs, Canes and Leafs

  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC: The Jets have a lot of options if they look to make some moves. A lot of their key players are still under contract from two to six years. Talk is that the younger they are, the harder it is to get them. Friedman wouldn’t trade Evander Kane unless the return was massive.

    Friedman thinks Dustin Byfuglien would be a defenseman that Capitals Adam Oates would love to coach.

    Sabres GM Tim Murray said there are no untouchables on his team, but prepare to make a big offer if you want someone like Zemgus Girgensons, Tyler Myers or Rasmus Ristolainen.

  • Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Senators GM Bryan Murray may look to move some of their young talent to bring in some missing pieces.

    “I think we do have a good number of young people I would think other organizations would be interested in,” Murray said. “The Bobby Ryan deal [last summer] required us to give up a young player, a couple of young players. I think it’s been a good thing for us, and I believe it’ll be a good thing for Anaheim.

    “But, yes, we’re open to talking about moving a young part or two to get the required player that we would need.”

    They won’t trade Curtis Lazar though. Murray would like to add a forward that could have an impact, either through scoring or physical aspect.

  • CP on SportsNet: Senators GM Bryan Murray:

    “We do have a number of players that probably are deserving of playing some games or playing in the NHL that may not get a chance because of our numbers up here that we would talk to teams about for a more veteran-type player,” Murray said.

    “We hope to have kind of an objective by the trading deadline, by the Olympic break, whatever the case may be, and then we’ll see where we go,” Murray said.

  • Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area: Kurz thinks the Sharks are already looking for a scoring winger, but not to expect anything until closer to the trade deadline, possibly just before the Feb. 8th Olympic break. Kurz doesn’t think it would be a big name. The Sharks have their first and second round picks, along with the Penguins second round pick from the Douglas Murray trade.
  •  Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: The biggest question surrounding the Blues is their goaltending despite how productive they’ve been. Ryan Miller’s name keeps coming up, but they are tight against the salary cap and it may be difficult to move out enough money to offset Miller’s cap hit. The Blues may also not be willing to part with the young prospects/players and picks the Sabres would want in return. The Blues could look trade one of Brian Elliott or Jaroslav Halak and bring up Jake Allen to be their backup.
  • Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe: If the Sabres decide to part with Ryan Miller, teams like the Blues, Islanders, Panthers, Flames and Oilers could use a frontline goalie. The Sabres can’t let Miller go for nothing. Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff needs to improve their goaltending situation. The Ducks have four goaltenders:  Jonas HillerViktor FasthFrederik Anderssen, and John Gibson. The Kings have three goalies behind Jonathan Quick: Ben ScrivensMartin Jones, and Jean-Francois Berube. Even if it requires a Blake Wheeler, Dustin Byfuglien or Evander Kane, so be it.
  • Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette: Pending UFA defenseman Andrei Markov would like to stay with the Canadiens.

    “Maybe I’m going to sign another contract tomorrow. Maybe in another month. We’ll see,” he said. “I’d like to stay here for the rest of my career. You can see some players in their 40s who still play. I don’t want to think that far. Whatever is going to happen tomorrow will happen tomorrow.”

    Preliminary talks have begun.

  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: The Avalanche and Ryan O’Reilly’s camp haven’t talked contract since the summer. They will talk again after the season, and things seem to be good between two sides. There is optimism that a new deal could get done. Things are different now with Joe Sakic and Patrick Roy.
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”The Senators gave been available to make a deal all year. Speculation has always been money is limiting them.” … ”If right offer comes along & it requires Melnyk to loosen the purse strings. I believe that he will do that if its within reason”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”I think the guys that run the Jets are aware that they are not a Western Conf juggernaut.” … ”With their roster though, they expected better play. They were basically underperformimg. Pavelec’s goaltending now in focus”
  • Brian Wilde: “McGuire on the Jets: They’re built with wingers. Nobody wins with great wingers. Build down the middle and with defence. That’s how to win.”
  • Jason Brough of Pro Hockey Talk: Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff:

    “I think we still need to acquire pieces to either establish a larger core, or maybe move some pieces that re-establish some different things,” Cheveldayoff said this afternoon on TSN 1050 radio.

    “This is still a project that’s in the works.”

  • Darren Dreger: Hurricanes Tuomo Ruuttu name is back in trade talk, as he could draw some interest.
  • Howard Berger: A Western Conference source said the Maple Leafs are looking for a “big body” forward.

Morning Hits: Preds sign Hornqvist, Rask between Howard and Price, Oilers 1st pick in play, Jets storylines

  • PR Nashville Predators: The Predators have signed forward Patric Hornqvist to a five-year, $21.25 million contract extension.

    “As we build towards the 2013-14 season and beyond, re-signing Patric Hornqvist was an off-season priority,” Poile said. “Since joining the Predators, he has become—and will remain—an integral member of our core group. Patric is everything we talk about as a Predator—he is relentless in going to the net and willing to pay the price to score goals, has a terrific work ethic and is a quality person who is respected on and off the ice. Patric is just entering the prime of his career. He has led our team in goal-scoring in two of the last four seasons and we are looking forward to him being a significant part of the Predators’ on-ice success in the years to come.”

  • Joe Haggerty of CSNNE: RFA Tuukka Rask could be looking for a new deal somewhere between Jimmy Howard’s $5,291,667 salary cap hit and Carey Price’s $6.5 million cap hit. His playoff performance may shift the number closer to one them. Rask finished the season with a 19-10-5 record, a 2.00 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.
  • Terry Jones of the Edmonton Journal: The Oilers have the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NHL draft, and it could be in play.

    “We’re definitely going to look at doing something with that pick. I think we’d be very receptive to moving back and picking up another pick potentially,” said MacTavish.

    “It’s a very deep draft in my mind. There are tons of players out there who excite me. Or possibly we could pick up somebody that could help us immediately and another pick.”

    MacTavish is also looking to get bigger.

    “We want more toughness, more meat and more depth in our lineup,” he said.

    “I’m pretty optimistic we can get some of the immediate growth and change,” said MacTavish.

    Some people had been mentioning amnesty buyout for Ryan Smyth.

    “Ryan Smyth will be back,” he said.

  • Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: 5 Jets storylines to watch this offseason.1. Are the Jets ready for their first blockbuster deal? Wiebe doesn’t think they should trade Dustin Byfuglien, but he could bring the biggest return. If they were to move him, they would need to get an all-star back.2. Is Olli Jokinena candidate for an amnesty buyout? It may send a bad message to future free agents if they buyout Jokinen after just one season. Paying someone over $3 million to not play, isn’t the way the Jets do business. Jokinen could still bounce back.3. Will the Jets try to move up in the draft? The Jets could still find an impact player at 13. It’s possible that they could package their pick along with another pick or player and move up. They have six picks in the first three rounds.

    4. Who will be Ondrej Pavelec’s backup? They could bring back Al Montoya.

    5. Can Toby Enstrom kick the injury bug? He’s missed 46 games in the last two seasons. He hopes to be able to get rid of the “fragile” label.
