NHL Rumors: Lightning, Capitals, Avalanche, Sabres, Blue Jackets, Penguins and Flames

  • Craig Custance of ESPN: Three things the Lightning will have to decide on this offseason: 1. Make a decision of Ryan Callahan - the Lightning would like to keep him, but there will be a limit on what they will want to pay him. He should be able to get about $6.25 million on the open market. A team like the Sabres may be willing to go max term for Callahan. 2. Add depth on defense – Sami Salo will be a UFA and GM Steve Yzerman may look for a defenseman who is not closing in on 40. Maybe Yzerman could try to convince Dan Boyle to return. 3. Get Jonathan Drouin acclimated.
  • Craig Custance of ESPN: (chat) When asked about his suggestion for the Capitals to trade Mike Green despite the fact that he might not be an attractive package due to declining play, contract and injury history … “No, they definitely wouldn’t be maxing out his value. But something has to change there in DC. You can’t move OV, you shouldn’t move Backstrom. You can’t keep bringing back the same core over and over and expect different results.”

    The Avs have to re-sign both Ryan O’Reilly and Paul Stastny this offseason. Custance thinks Stastny could get a deal in the $7 million range. There are not a lot of 28-year old center on the free agent market this year.

  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Artus Irbe could replace Jim Corsi as the Sabres goalie coach.

    Pending UFA Nick Schultz may be one and done with the Blue Jackets as he hasn’t been able to get into their top six along the blueline since being traded from the Oilers.

  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”Most definitely the Lightning are going to need help on their blueline moving forward.”
  • Hope Smoke: Nick Kypreos: ”I don’t think Fleury has totally recovered. I think MAF still had the yips.” … ”Now that teams can retain $, there will be a lot of teams willing to take on Fleury as a rehabilition project if he’s available”
  • Hope Smoke: Jamie McLennan: ”The capologist for the Flames should have been shown the door after the ROR offer sheet. I know who it is”

NHL Rumors: Coyotes, Jets, Capitals, Canucks, Lightning and Penguins

  • Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic: The free agent pool is year is not deep and the price tags may be too high for the Coyotes. The Coyotes have some young players like Connor Murray, Brandon Gormley and Max Domi that might be ready to make the jump. The Coyotes may also be open to making some trades. They could look be looking players in the 23 to 25 year range to complement enthusiasm with experience.

    “We have to look at our group and say we need more energy,” Maloney said. “We need more hunger into our group, and maybe we got a little complacent with people being here too long.”

  • Brian McNally of the Washington Times: Capitals defenseman Mike Green knows that the organization could go in a different direction with GM George McPhee and their coaching staff, and that his days with the Capitals could be numbered. Green is entering the last year of his three deal. He’ll make $6.25 million next year with a cap hit of $6.083 million.
  • Adam Vingan of NBC Washington: (mailbag) Vingan thinks that the Capitals could get some assets back for Mike Green instead of buying him out. If they traded him, it would be because they think the core needs some retooling. It seems unlikely that GM George McPhee and coach Adam Oates return.
  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Alex Ovechkin said that he would never ask for a trade. Only July 1st his limited no-trade clause kicks in. Each year he lists 10 teams that he would accept a trade too. There has been no indication that Capitals owner Ted Leonsis would consider trading Ovechkin.
  • Iain MacIntyre: MacIntyre is hearing nothing regarding John Tortorella and that Ron Hextal is in the mix for the Canucks GM job.
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”Callahan is what he is. The Rangers at one point were willing to pay him $6 million a year and he wanted more” … ”Keep something in mind, Fla is a no tax state. He may be able to take a deal that is more palatable to TB & Callahan makes his $”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”I think Bylsma and Fleury are very much on the radar if things don’t go well for Pitt” … ”Losing to CBJ would be not going well for Pitt. There are a lot of different scenarios beyond that”

NHL Rumors: Callahan, Markov, Jagr, Iginla, Torts, Carlyle, Jets, Giordano, Ekblad and McCabe

  • Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Ryan Callahan’s agent, Steve Bartlett, said that he spoke with Lightning GM Steve Yzerman over the weekend, with Yzerman saying he’d like to talk contract extension after the season.

    “Yeah, we’d love to sign him,” said Yzerman. “He’s a good fit, a good person, a good player, has style of play that really complements our group well; he’s fit in really well. So we hope to sign him. But we won’t talk until after the year.”

    It’s likely that John Tortorella will be fired by the Canucks after the season. There will also be the question whether or not to fire GM Mike Gillis. Both Tortorella and Gillis have four years left on their deals.

    The Canadiens and Andrei Markov’s agent, Sergei Berezin, have continued contract talks.

    “I met with Marc a couple of days ago when they were here [in Florida],” Berezin told ESPN.com Tuesday.

    “I don’t think we’re in any rush to get anything done. I have an idea what they’re offering, they know what we want, and I don’t actually think we’re that far apart. I’m hopeful in the end it will work out.”

    Jaromir Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda, met with Devils GM Lou Lamoriello a few days ago to talk about a contract extension. Talks will pick up after the season.

    Contract talks between Peter Chiarelli and Jarome Iginla’s camp will wait until after the season.

    Randy Carlyle’s future with the Maple Leafs could be in doubt if they miss the playoffs.

  • Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press: Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has some trade chips he could use after the season. Evander Kane would get them a big return, including roster players and picks/prospects. Tobias Enstrom could get a nice return, but they would need a frontline defender in return. Zach Bogosian’s stock might be down at the moment. Lawless wouldn’t move Brian Little or Andrew Ladd.
  • Hope Smoke: Steve Simmons: ”I highly doubt that Gardiner will be dealt considering Nonis believes dealing young D is the biggest mistake a GM can make”
  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: ”If Cal trades Giordano they get rid of their hardest competitor. Giordano embodies what you want from your leaders” … ”I hate the word lifer but Giordano is a lifer in Calgary” … ”If the Leafs want to acquire Giordano what can they trade back? Connor McDavid?” … ”I wouldn’t trade JVR for a top end D because you’re stealing from Peter to pay Paul”
  • Corey Pronman: Sabres GM Tim Murray: ”If Ekblad is the best player available that we deem at the end of the year we’ll take Ekblad”
  • John Vogl: Sabres GM Tim Murray said they are close to signing Jake McCabe and that he would likely report to Sabres and not to the AHL.

Morning Rumors: Sabres, Oilers, Flyers, Hurricanes, Islanders, Senators, Panthers and Leafs

  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Sabres Ted Nolan will likely be signing a three-year contract when they return from their road trip.

    The Sabres may look to buy out Ville Leino.

    The Oilers and Flyers are interested in college free agent Christian Folin.

    Matheson could see the Islanders being interested in Cam Ward if the Hurricanes look to trade him this offseason. The Capitals could also be an option.

  • Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen: Senators Jason Spezza will be entering the last year of his contact next year, $4 million salary and $7 million cap hit.

    “At this point I haven’t given any thought to it at all,” says, regarding the possibility of contract talks. “We’re so in the thick of things right now, that’s the farthest thing from my mind.”

  • Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times: Ryan Callahan appears to be fitting into mold that Lightning coach Jon Cooper wants to play. GM Steve Yzerman hit the right note with Callahan’s camp by not trying to start negotiations right away. Rangers owner James Dolan said on the radio last week that Callahan had demanded a six year deal in the $6.25 to $6.5 million range. Callahan’s agent has said that because the lack of state income tax in Florida means that players can take less
  • George Richards: Panthers assistant GM Mike Santos said that negotiations haven’t started with Dmitry Kulikov and denies that there is an offer on the table.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”The consensus is that Carlyle wanted the beat guys to ask him about Reimer following the Det game”

Morning Rumors: Panthers, Blackhawks, Rangers, Islanders, Wild, Expansion, Canucks and Leafs

  • Ian Mendes: Panthers GM Dale Talon on pending RFA Erik Gudbranson: ”He’s not going anywhere. He is likely going to be the captain of our team some day.”
  • Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times: There have been no talks between Ben Smith and the Blackhawks.

    ‘‘You try not to give that too much power,’’ Smith said. ‘‘As long as I keep working hard and show what I can do, that stuff will take care of itself.’’

  • Katie Strang: Rangers owner James Dolan on ESPN radio: ”I think Ryan [Callahan] was essentially asking too much for his services”
  • Katie Strang of ESPN: It doesn’t sound like pending UFA Matt Moulson will return to the Islanders this offseason.

    “It’s been said that I wasn’t in the future plans, so I don’t think that will quickly change,” Moulson said. “I’m just going to concentrate on helping Minnesota to win right now.”

  • Dobber Prospects: Bob McKenzie said that the Wild are trying hard to sign college UFA Greg Carey.
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”When the NHL is looking at expansion they’ll be targeting the pacific northwest”
  • Brittany Wallman of the Sun Sentinel: Six of eight commissioners voted in favor of giving the Panthers additional taxes from tourists. The Panthers are asking for and additional $80 million from Broward County. The Panthers are requesting the developmental rights to 22 acres of land next to the arena, is separate from the request for additional tax funds. Panthers President and CEO Michael Yormark.

    “We need help,” he said.

    “We’re losing $100,000 a day,” said Panthers co-owner Doug Cifu, who with Vinnie Viola became the team’s fifth owner in September, with a $250 million purchase. “So where I sit, time is of the essence.”

  • Farhan Lalji: Told that the Canucks ownership definitely will not make a move regarding John Tortorella or Mike Gillis until season.
  • Andy Strickland: From the Ryan Miller trade: some scouts think that William Carrier could play on the Sabres third line next season.
  • Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle on James Reimer after a 3-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    “I thought he was okay, you know,” Carlyle said after Reimer made 28 saves against the Wings.

    “Just okay.”

    Reimer’s response?

    “So he said I was just okay?” Reimer said.

    “I thought I was good. I don’t know if I was great, and I would like to be great, but I thought I made some good saves when I needed to.”

    Reimer’s agent, Ray Petkau on twitter after the game.

    “As is customary in Toronto, when your team plays poor defensively game after game you blame your goalie.”

    Petkau then tweeted 40 minutes later.

    “Apparently that last tweet needs clarification. Notice it’s NOT directed at anyone in particular. It’s a general observation. #BadTiming”

Morning Rumors: Blues, Sabres, Blue Jackets, Ducks, Rangers, Nolan and Salary Cap

  • Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Unless the Blues and Ryan Miller go deep into the playoffs, GM Doug Armstrong may be reluctant to pay big money to retain Miller. The Blues have Jake Allen waiting for a shot in the AHL. Likely heading to free agency are Brian Elliott, Derek Roy, Brenden Morrow and Carlo Colaiacovo. They also have restricted free agents in Jaden Schwartz, Vladimir Sobotka and Patrik Berglund.

    Sabres that could be traded this summer: Christian Ehrhoff, Tyler Myers, Chris Stewart and Drew Stafford.

    The Blue Jackets may have some money to spend this summer and may look at Matt Moulson.

    The Ducks could look to the trade market this summer to replace the departed Dustin Penner and Teemu Selanne’s retirement.

  • Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Rangers Marc Staal does not want to go through what Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi went through.

    “I saw those two guys go through it with the negotiations and all of the rumors that are impossible to avoid if you’re on the last year of your contract, and it’s not something I really want to go through,” Staal told The Post on Sunday following the Rangers’ buttoned-down 3-0 victory over the Red Wings at the Garden.

    “You can say all you want that it’s not on your mind and it’s not a distraction, but it’s something that has to weigh on you,” No. 18 said. “I know my brother, Jordan, went through a lot of that early on in a season when he was in Pittsburgh and basically said, ‘Enough of that.’

    “For me, the contract situation is definitely something I would like to take care of over the summer. That’s the goal, but that also has to be the way management looks at it, too, in order to get it done.”

    It might take a long-term deal in the $5.5 to $6 million range.

  • Amy Moritz of the Buffalo News: It is sounding like the interim tag could be removed from Ted Nolan in the near future.

    “I put into my representative’s hand and I guess he and Tim will be talking soon if not have talked already,” Nolan said. “Just formality and getting a couple of things ironed out and doing all the legal stuff. We’ll leave it in their hands for now.”

  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”I’ve heard the cap next year could be anywhere between $68-70 million. Nothing confirmed yet”

Morning Rumors: Canucks, Penguins, Bruins, Devils, Lightning, Ducks, Oilers, Wings, Jackets and Coyotes

  • Josh Rimer: Hearing that the Canucks will have a fire sale at the draft with Ryan Kesler, Alex Edler and Kevin Bieksa likely to go. What does this mean to the Sedins? Will ownership let GM Mike Gillis do the rebuild? What about coach John Tortorella?
  • Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: After seeing how successful it was to have three quality centers in Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal during the playoff runs from 2007 to 2009, it was one of the reasons GM Ray Shero was targeting Ryan Kesler. With not a lot of salary cap room left and lots of injuries, the Penguins had some holes to fill at the deadline: top-line winger, third line scoring and defensive depth. The Penguins could still look to add Kesler. If they are able to land Kesler, their top three centers would take up $23.3 million in cap space, about 34.3 percent.
  • James Murphy of XN Sports: There is speculation within NHL management and scouting that Canucks ownership may have nixed two potential trades at the deadline. The Canucks were close to trading Ryan Kesler to the Penguins for a package that included Brandon Sutter, Derrick Pouliot and a draft pick. Ownership still thinks they are a playoff team, and may have told GM Mike Gillis to take him off the trade market. Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reported last week that the Canucks may have had a deal in place to send Alex Eder to the Bruins for a package that included Matt Barkowski and Ryan Spooner or Alexander Khokhlachev. The deal may have been pulled as the Kesler trade did not happen.The Devils tried to get Brian Gionta from the Canadiens at the deadline. Sources saying that the Devils offered a prospect and a second round pick, but where told he wasn’t available.
  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Recently acquired Thomas Vanek may not re-sign with the Canadiens as signs pointing to him signing with Minnesota. Nobody should be surprised if the Lightning were able to re-sign Ryan Callahan to a five year deal at $25 million. There is no state income tax in Florida, great weather and less pressure.

    “Ryan can take a test-drive there and vice versa,” said his agent Steve Bartlett, who says Tampa general manager Steve Yzerman is taking it low-key. “There’s no gun to anybody’s head. I love that attitude.” Bartlett concedes that the lack of state income tax is a carrot. “You can take 10-per-cent less in Florida than New York and have it be the same amount of money.”

  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Matheson can see the Ducks going after Ryan Kesler after the season. The Ducks could offer a combination of Jakob Silfverberg, Devante Smith-Pelly or Emerson Etem, Sami Vatanen or Luca Sbisa and a first round pick.Matheson thinks the Oilers should try to sign Kings pending UFA Matt Greene this summer.

    The Red Wings want to re-sign newly acquired David Legwand.

    Matheson can see the Blue Jackets looking to add Matt Moulson this offseason to replace Marian Gaborik.

    The Coyotes looked at added Ales Hemsky at the deadline to play with Martin Hanzal and Radim Vrbata. Hemsky could re-sign with the Senators, but the Coyotes will likely be interested in him as well.

  • Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News: Pat LaFontaine talks a little, but didn’t speak about his exit from the team 3 1/2 months after he was brought in. There are questions if he was fired, if he resigned or a combination of both.  He wouldn’t even acknowledge if he signed a confidentiality agreement with the team.

Morning Hits II: Garrioch Deadline Roundup, Brodeur, Klesla and Hotstove Video

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Teams are putting more value on draft picks than in the past.

    “Teams aren’t like they used to be. They want to get value for draft picks,” said a league executive after the deadline. “We found that teams put a much heavier emphasis on picks. They don’t want to just give them away anymore.

    “Teams have put a high value on them. That’s the case and that’s why teams want to pay for the first- round picks for them.”

    Both the Penguins and Blackhawks were working right to the deadline on a potential Ryan Kesler deal.

    The Senators and Maple Leafs were talking to the Islanders about Thomas Vanek.

    A couple of teams asked the Rangers about Derek Dorsett.

    The Flames would have traded Dennis Wideman, but no team wanted his contract.

    Teams were calling the Senators about Curtis Lazar.

    Talk is that Flames GM Brian Burke was demanding a first round pick for Mike Cammalleri right up to the deadline and wasn’t backing down from it.

    The Ducks were in on Thomas Vanek and moved Dustin Penner as they thought they had a good shot. They also may have thought the asking price for Cammalleri was too high.

    The Rangers and Ryan Callahan weren’t far apart when they made the Martin St. Louis trade. The Rangers wouldn’t include a no-trade clause and were in a foul mood. When talks started with Callahan, he reportedly asked for seven years and $56 million, $8 million a season.

    The Blues were willing to trade Derek Roy, but couldn’t find a fit.

  • Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: Devils Martin Brodeur said he wants to play next year, and he doesn’t have to be a No. 1 goalie.

    “No, just to play more and have the chance to win the Stanley Cup. Be in the playoffs,” Brodeur said Friday. “Those were some of the requirements I had, not just being outside looking in. I didn’t want to come back to a situation like this.”

  • Darren Dreger: Sabres Rostislav Klesla: ”With all due respect to the Sabres organization, I decided this week not to continue playing hockey this season. It has been a tough year for injury and moving several times to new teams. I will now take some time off and get ready to continue my career in Europe. I would like to thank my fans and all the people that have helped me. I am grateful for the career I have had in the NHL and all the people that I have met along the way who have supported me and my family.”

Trade Deadline Fallout II: Callahan, MacDonald, Vanek, Leafs, Bulter, Flames and Stastny

  • Pat Leonard: Rangers GM Glen Sather confirms that contract talks stalled with Ryan Callahan because Callahan wanted a no-trade clause.
  • Erik Erlendsson: Lightning owner Jeff Vinik: ”We are pleased to add Ryan Callahan to our team and we hope to sign him for the long term”
  • John Boruk: The Flyers could be looking to sign newly acquired Andrew MacDonald to a contract extension in the $4 to $5 million per season range. Dave Isaac: There have been talks yet, but MacDonald’s agent is “not afraid of a long-term deal.”
  • John Vogl: The Sabres ended up trading Thomas Vanek (retaining some of his salary) and Cody McCormick for a first round pick in either 2014 or 2015, three second round picks in 2014, 2015 and 2016 and Torrey Mitchell.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”The Leafs were relatively quiet, but the Leafs more than kicked tires on Vanek. They were big players on that” … ”The Leafs were one of three teams, maybe more, that pretty much brought it down right down to the wire on Vanek”
  • Chris Nichols: Islanders GM Garth Snow said they didn’t get an offer for Thomas Vanek until after noon on trade deadline day.
  • Steve Mears: Isles GM Snow on the difficulty of trading Vanek: ”There was a player (Kesler) in play, which delayed the process around the league.”
  • Hope Smoke: Dreger: ”Nonis made it abundantly clear that he wasn’t going to give up assets unless it was for a hockey deal, not a rental”
  • Wes Gilbertson: The Flames received some calls on defenseman Chris Butler. There have been some talks between the Flames and Butler about a contract extension.
  • David Pagnotta: Flames GM Brian Burke admitted that a three-team deal fell through that would have seen them take on salary in exchange for a draft pick.
  • Adrian Dater: Dater thinks the Avalanche will re-sign Paul Stastny.

NHL Trade: Tampa Bay Trades St. Louis To Rangers For Callahan And Draft Picks

The Tampa Bay Lighting have traded Martin St. Louis to the New York Rangers for Ryan Callahan, a 2015 1st round pick and a 2014 2nd round pick.

If the Rangers get to the Conference Final, the Lightning will receive the Rangers 2014 1st round pick instead of the 2nd round pick.

If the Lightning re-sign Callahan, the Rangers will get a 2015 2nd round and the Lightnings get the Rangers 2015 7th round pick.

What do you think of the trade?
