NHL Rumors: Sabres, Canucks, Penguins, Kings, Panthers, Senators and Maple Leafs

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Sabres GM Tim Murray is willing to trade almost anyone. He’s been shopping Chris Stewart, Christian Ehrhoff, Luke Adam and Drew Stafford. They will also listen to offers on Marcus Foligno, Johan Larsson and Chad Ruhwedel.

    “He’s just open for business,” said a league executive about Murray before the weekend. “He hasn’t drafted any of these current guys.”

    Pat LaFontaine interviewed 15 people before deciding on Tim Murray.

    Coyotes assistant Brad Treliving may be one of the top candidates for the Canucks GM position.

    The Penguins and Blackhawks were close to trading for Ryan Kesler at the deadline. Trading Kesler could be revisited at the draft.

    There could be lots of changes in Carolina this offseason.

    Penguins coach Dan Bylsma will be under the microscope if they don’t go far into the playoffs.

    The Kings could be a landing spot for Mike Cammalleri.

    John Ferguson Jr. could be the top candidate to replace Brendan Shanahan.

    One option for Martin Brodeur next season is to mentor Marc-Andre Fleury in Pittsburgh. The Islanders also need a goaltender.

    Panthers GM Dale Tallon may be on the hotseat. Garrioch suggests bringing in Doug MacLean as president to help Tallon.

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators will have to decide if they want to re-sign pending UFAs Milan Michalek, Ales Hemsky and Matt Kassian. One year away from free agency will be Jason Spezza, Bobby Ryan, Craig Anderson, Clarke MacArthur and Marc Methot. Spezza knows changes are coming.

    “I don’t look at it that way. I think that when you do have a season of disappointment there’s going to be change in the room. This isn’t going to be the same group next year and we’re all well aware of that,” said Spezza, in his first year as captain.

  • Steve Simmons: Dave Nonis’ inclination may have been to keep Randy Carlyle as coach. Brendan Shanahan may not think that way. Reports from New Jersey may be that Shanahan would like Peter DeBoer as they coach. Simmons likes the Leafs core of Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk, Jonathan Bernier, Tyler Bozak, Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner, but the contracts of Dion Phaneuf, Joffrey Lupul and David Clarkson will make it hard for them to build around their young core.
  • George Richards: Panthers defenseman Ed Jovanoski said wants to play year. The Panthers will have to pay him $4 million whether he plays or not. Steve Simmons: (responding) The Panthers will look to trade Jovanovski if possible. They are fed up with his lack of leadership as he’s not showing the kids the way.

NHL Rumors II: Panthers, Flyers, Maple Leafs, Penguins and Avs

  • The Fourth Period: The Panthers are hoping to re-sign pending RFAs Dmitry Kulikov and Eric Gudbranson, as well as pending UFA Tom Gilbert. Gilbert and the Panthers will talk about an extension before July 1st. The Panthers have already had trade talks involving Kulikov before the deadline, and could revisit those if they can’t get him locked up.
  • Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is doing all he can to keep pending UFA Andrew MacDonald with the team. MacDonald has enjoyed his time with the Flyers.

    “I’m not going to comment on anything that is ongoing,” Holmgren told the Daily News yesterday. “It just doesn’t make any sense [to comment]. We’d like to get something done. We want to sign him.”

    “I like what I see so far. It’s been great,” MacDonald said. “From an organizational standpoint, the team has been competitive. As a player, that’s all you can ask. That and to make you feel welcome. I’ve been really happy. We’ll see if something can get done here.”

    Money could become an issue. MacDonald would be one of the top Dmen available on July 1st. The Flyers will likely need to pay market price or higher for him. He turned down a four year, $16 million from the Islanders before he was traded at the deadline.

  • Sam Carchidi: MacDonald said that his agent and GM Paul Holmgren have been talking contract extension.
  • Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Randy Carlyle’s future as the Leafs coach won’t be determined quickly. GM Dave Nonis knew before he signed his five-year extension with the Leafs last year that it was possible that they would bring in another senior executive. Nonis may wait and see what other coaches come available after the season, possibilities include: Barry Trotz, John Tortorella, Kirk Muller, Dan Bylsma and Peter DeBoer. The Leafs and Dave Bolland’s camp don’t appear to be close. Bolland may be looking for an eight year deal in the $5 million range. Thought is that he won’t get that anywhere. A deal in the five year range and closer to the $4.2 million that Tyler Bozak makes, makes more sense. The Leafs would like Bolland back, but only at a reasonable price. Nonis will have to decide if he wants to bring pending UFAs Nikolai Kulemin and Jay McClement back. James Reimer will most likely ask to be traded, but it may not be easily made.
  • Josh Yohe of Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Penguins Tomas Vokoun is in the AHL on a conditioning assignment is not sure if he’ll be called up to backup Marc-Andre Fleury. It could also be his last season playing hockey.

    “That’s up to the coaches,” Vokoun said. “When we talked back in January, I told them I’m open-minded. Regardless of what happened, I was 90 percent sure it was going to be my last season anyway.”

  • Chris Johnston: Leafs GM Dave Nonis is expected to remain GM after the hiring of Brendan Shanahan as team president.
  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: ”If Shanahan goes in and fires Carlyle then he should just fire Nonis too. If that’s the way then Nonis is just a puppet” … ”Nonis will not be a puppet. That’s not his style. There is a fighter there that I don’t think people realize.”
  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: The people that I’ve spoken to have told me that it’s Patrick Roy making the decisions there”

NHL Rumors I: Kypreos, MacLean, Ferraro and Dreger Talk Maple Leafs

  • Hope Smoke: Nick Kypreos: ”If I look at the Leafs I say Kessel, Bozak, JVR, Phaneuf, Bernier and Rielly are safe and everyone else can be moved” … ”When you’re locked into some of these long-term deals it makes it very difficult to improve. Could be a long process here in TO”
  • Hope Smoke: Doug MacLean: ”If you get a #1 C & a #1 D then the Leafs have the making of a good team. There’s a reason guys like Dion & Phil were traded here” … ”There are warts on these players and that’s why they became available”
  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: ”#1 priority for the Leafs is a big Centre.”
  • Hope Smoke: Doug MacLean: ”Bieksa is no doubt available and he’s a guy who could come to Toronto and make a difference”
  • Hope Smoke: Doug MacLean: ”Is Bolland coming back? I keep hearing rumblings he’s going to Florida”
  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: ”If Nonis fires Carlyle his replacement is probably his last hire. Think it’s more likely goes with someone he’s more familiar with” … ”Would Nonis look at a guy like Dineen? Who’s the next hot young coach? It used to be Cooper & Boucher” … ”I’d think John Stevens and Davis Payne are guys that get interviewed for top jobs shortly”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”I think there is enough evidence to suggest and I believe Carlyle will lose his job”

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 IV: Ryan Kesler Edition: Rangers, Wings, Pens, Leafs, Oilers and Jackets

  • Louis Jean: Ryan Kesler denies that he asked for a trade, but Jean stands “100% behind what I reported because it is true.”
  • Elliotte Friedman: “Kesler says it is “completely false” he has asked for a trade.” Kesler added that he doesn’t want to be asked about it again, same goes for his team.
  • Rob Rossi: The Penguins did make a pitch for Ryan Kesler before the Olympics. Talks involved Brandon Sutter and Derrick Pouliot. This was before Kris Letang’s situation.
  • Nick Kypreos: Indication from one team was that the Canucks are asking for as many as three pieces: 1st round pick, roster player/prospect.
  • Jason Brough: A reasonable return for Kesler would be a first round pick, a ‘youngish’ NHLer and good prospect.
  • Nick Kypreos: The Rangers, Red Wings and Penguins are interested in Kesler. Offers are starting to come in. Kypreos is leaning towards seeing Kesler dealt by Wednesday.
  • MyNHLTradeRumors: Elliotte Friedman said on the Fan 590 that the Oilers and Rangers could be interested in Kesler. Later adds that the Penguins could be a potential interested team. The Penguins have a cap situation that they would have to deal with.
  • Darren Dreger: The Maple Leafs and Canucks haven’t talked about a Kesler trade. The Leafs have some interest. Back in 2006, it was Nonis who matched the offer sheet the Flyers signed Kesler too.
  • TSN Insider Trading: Darren Dreger:

    There has to have been some level of dialogue between Ryan Kesler and the Vancouver Canucks, or the Canucks telling Kesler that they need to improve, they need to get younger, they need to add a bit more offensive punch. They’re going to start sifting some names out there to rival teams and his name is going to be among them.

    Because here’s what I know. I know that teams were contacted as far back as a month ago to say ‘have a look at our roster. If there is a member of this organization that you want to take a run at then we’re listening, we’re open for business.’ And that includes Ryan Kesler.

    Dreger on if a deal can be done by next week.

    It’s a complicated deal because Kesler is a valuable asset of the Vancouver Canucks. He’s got a contract that makes a lot of sense. Financially, he is sound. He is a bargain, frankly, as long as he plays up to his level of potential. But is it realistic? Yes, because of the interest that will be out there. There will be interest from so many different teams, and we know as I said earlier that the Canucks have reached out.

    But the Canucks need premium return to make this deal a reality and six days away from the trade deadline is not a lot of time to close on such a big deal.

  • Hope Smoke: Ray Ferraro: ”Kesler is not crazy about being a winger, so I would suspect Tortorella’s desire to play him there didn’t go over well” … ”I can tell you one thing, he’s not going to the Rangers. Him and Vigneault didn’t have the chummiest of relationships” … ”If the Leafs were interested in Kesler it would cost them Kadri for sure and someone else in that 21-25 age range”
  • Hope Smoke: Elliotte Friedman: ”I haven’t heard specifically about the Leafs being interested in Kesler but they did have two people at the game last night” … ”Nonis knows Kesler better than anybody and he doesn’t need to scout him” … ”The thing is, has Kesler given a blanket agreement to go anywhere or is he willing to only go to certain places” … ”Gillis is getting a lot of calls right now. I saw him at the game last night & I got the impression he’s very busy” … ”I think there are a lot of teams that would be interested in Kesler, but a big question is whether he’s healthy right now” … ”If you’re Edmonton though, it doesn’t matter if he’s healthy right now because you’re looking for him to help you in yrs to come” … ”There are a lot of reasons why Edm is interested in Kesler” … ”They have a #1 C in RNH, but it’s pretty clear that Gagner won’t be long for Edm & they don’t have a lot of depth at C” … ”Edm is a team that is really easy to play against and they’re trying to change that and Kesler isn’t easy to play against”
  • Hope Smoke: Bob McKenzie: ”I can say this, when talking to people around the NHL they’ve indicated that Kesler has let it be known which teams he’ll go to” … ”Many media in Sochi that were around Kesler said they heard Kesler say he wanted to be traded and I’ve talked to them” … ”A Kadri for Kesler trade does not make sense in a one for one” … ”Van had interest in Kadri during the Luongo talks. I’ve never heard that the Leafs got down to brass tax on talk for Kesler” … ”I heard Columbus and Detroit have contacted and had talks for Kesler” … ”The Leafs haven’t had talks about Kesler but I’ve heard that is a player they’d be interested in”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”If Kesler comes to Toronto he’s still a #2. Bozak would remain on the top line” … ”There is no way the owner of the Canucks wants to see Kelser have success on a national basis in Toronto” … ”That’s what ultimately derailed the Luongo to TO deal thirty minutes before the deadline last year”
  • Corey Pronman: “With Kesler you pretty much get the top UFA quality player w/o handing out massive term into their mid 30s. That’s going to cost.”

Injury Notes: Zetterberg, Howard, Weiss, Bozak, Eriksson,Tanguay, Zibanejad, Bernier and Hertl

  • Ansar Khan: Red Wings GM Ken Holland said that Henrik Zetterberg will be ready for their game on December 29th. They are hoping that Jimmy Howard is ready to return either on December 30th or January 1st.
  • George Sipple: Red Wings GM Ken Holland said that Stephen Weiss (groin) will see a specialist in Philadelphia on Friday. He won’t be skating anytime soon.
  • Sean Fitz-Gerald: Maple Leafs Tyler Bozak hopes to be able to return on December 29th.
  • Stephen Harris of the Boston Herald: Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli on Loui Eriksson (concussion).

    “We’re careful with that,” the GM said. “I talked to Loui a little bit (Monday). He’s coming along, but he’s still experiencing symptoms. With that type of injury, you see slow improvements, and that’s what Loui is going through right now. So I don’t know what the time period would be.”

    Defenseman Adam McQuaid (suspected groin injury) may be held out until after Christmas to give him the extra time to heal.

    “They just want to make sure when I come back, after I’ve taken off all this time, (that I don’t) come back a little bit too soon (and) re-aggravate it again,” McQuaid said. “It’s about making sure I’m ready, and it (will not) affect me again.

    “I’m pretty close. Each day I do a little more. It’s just about how I react to it. I hope it will continue to be positive and I’ll be back soon. It’s been tough to be patient with this.”

  • Lou Korac: Blues Ryan Reaves is still hoping initial six week assessment is right, would have him returning towards the end of the first week in January.
  • Adrian Dater via Sulia: Avs coach Patrick Roy is “leaning” to having Ryan Wilson back in the lineup on Saturday. Alex Tanguay may start skating early next week.
  • Bruce Garrioch: Senators Mika Zibanejad left last night’s game with an upper-body injury.
  • TSN Radio: Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said that Jonathan Bernier is nursing an ailment.
  • Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area: Sharks Tomas Hertl is likely going to be out a bit after taking a knee-on-knee hit from Dustin Brown.

    “Nothing. I haven’t gone in there to see the trainers or talk to the doctors,” McLellan said. “Obviously, he didn’t return, and that’s not a good thing. But, other than that, I can’t give you anything more.”

Morning Rumors: Leafs, Panthers, Rangers, Habs, Preds, Isles, Sabres, Blues, Canes, Pens and Avs

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Trade talk has heated up, but not many teams have the salary cap space to make moves. “We have a cap world with parity but no flexibility,” said the executive. “It’s very difficult for teams to make changes.”Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis is working the phones with centers Tyler Bozak and Dave Bolland on the IR. The Leafs talked with the Stars about Vern Fiddler earlier in the year, but weren’t able to find the right fit. Once the others return, Fiddler would be at best a fourth-line player for them.

    Panthers GM Dale Tallon may be getting heat from new owner Vince Viola.

    The Rangers are increasing their efforts to trade Michael Del Zotto, but the asking price is still high.

    The Rangers may look at buying out Brad Richards after the season.

    Islanders Jack Capuano and Hurricanes Kirk Muller are on the hotseat.

    The Canadiens are looking for size down the middle.

    If the Predators can’t stay in the playoff race, the “for sale” sign may be going up.

    The Islanders are looking for a goalie.

    Talk that the Blues might go after Sabres Ryan Miller.

    The Blues might be willing to move T.J. Oshie. He has a $4.175 million cap hit through 2017.

    The Blackhawks are looking for depth down the middle and on the blueline.

    Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford has interest in Leafs Jake Gardiner and Rangers Michael Del Zotto.

    Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen is looking to change up his forwards.

  • Josh Rimer: The Penguins may now have to go get a defenseman with Paul Martin, Rob Scuderi and Brooks Orpik out.
  • George Richards of the Miami Herald: Panthers GM Dale Tallon denied Hockey Night in Canada’s report that a deal for Dmitry Kulikov with the Avalanche fell through. Kulikov was scratched on Tuesday and HNIC said a potential trade was the reason.

    “No, we sat him because of his play,” Tallon said. “[Kulikov] needed a little refresher. I’ve liked the way he’s played since.”

  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: The Avalanche were looking to add a defenseman before Jan Hejda was injured. The Avs could look at the trade market: Dmitry Kulikov (FLA) or Michael Del Zotto (NYR). Dater thinks they shouldn’t give up a first round pick or prospect that has real promise for a defenseman.
  • B.D. Gallof: “‘One item not very understood on #isles coach if there was to be a change… Slim to none they go for vet with old school habits” … “But to rpt: see defense + depth as issue #1 plus player effort needs to remain high level. If both addressed then could pull out of freefall” … “I think goalie could upgrade but only if there is a player available that can offset lapses and issues with his play”
