Morning Rumors: GMs on the Hotseat, Senators, Goalie Market, Expansion, Leafs, Canes and Hotstove Video
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Garrioch names some GM who could be in trouble this offseason: David Poile (NSH) – if he goes, coach Barry Trotz is likely gone as well. Poile has been the GM since 1998. Assistant GM Paul Fenton could be ready to take over. Mike Gillis (VAN) – if they don’t make the playoffs, it may come down to Gillis or Tortorella. George McPhee (WSH) – his contract is up after the season. Brian Burke in Calgary may be waiting for McPhee.
The Senators will have decisions to make on Jason Spezza this offseason. The Ducks and Blues inquired about Spezza at the deadline, but they didn’t have serious talks as the Senators will still in the hunt.
If the Senators can keep Ales Hemsky, they should do it.
Assuming the Blues re-sign Ryan Miller and Ducks re-sign Jonas Hiller, Jaroslav Halak could get interest if he hits the open market. Would make sense for the Capitals to try and re-sign Halak. Other teams that could be looking for a goaltender this summer are the Islanders, Flames, Wild and Canucks.
If Seattle gets an expansion team, don’t be surprised if Jeremy Roenick is named as the team president. He has ties with one of the groups that is interested in bringing in a team. Quebec City makes sense for a team and have started to build a new arena. Las Vegas has also made a pitch for a team.
The Sabres would still like to move Drew Stafford, Tyler Ennis and Christian Ehrhoff. They would also listen to offers on Tyler Myers.
It is possible that the Canadiens look to re-sign Thomas Vanek, but many think he’ll be end up in Minnesota. Don’t count out the Kings.
The Panthers are trying to re-sign RFA Dmitry Kulikov. GM Dale Tallon has offered a four-year deal worth $20 million, but Kulikov is looking for four-years and $22 million.
You have think that James Reimer won’t be back with the Maple Leafs. He’s been linked to the Jets.
Hurricanes Cam Ward could also be on the move.
- Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Simmons thinks the trade market for James Reimer is limited. There may only be three teams that he could start for: the Islanders, Sabres and Flames. He could complete for the No. 1 with the Jets, Canucks and Oilers. Simmons doesn’t think they would get much for him. There is more supply than demand in the goalie market.
The Flyers are interested in college UFA defenseman Christian Folin. The Leafs are not interested.
- Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Rangers GM Glen Sather on talk of his retirement.
“Everybody retires sometime, but I’m not intending to step away or retire from anything this year,” Sather told Slap Shots on Friday in Columbus, Ohio. “I don’t know how stories like this keep coming up, because I haven’t said anything to anybody about retiring. … One day, yes. But not now.”
“There comes a time where you do think about your lifestyle and maybe some of the things you might do if you weren’t doing this job,” he said. “But that’s not where my thoughts are now. I’m working to build this team into a Stanley Cup winner. That’s my priority. That’s what I’m focused on. … I’m not thinking about stepping back, or a change in my title or in my responsibilities.”
- Hockey Night in Canada Hotstove: Talk on Christian Folin and Jack Eichel. P.K. Subban and the Canadiens will talk after the season and it could be around Shea Weber numbers. The Blues and Ryan Miller will talk after the season. Paul Maurice will decide after the season if he wants to return as the Jets head coach.
- Elliotte Friedman: The NHL is looking into altering their draft lottery process. Under the current system, any team in the lottery could ‘win’ the lottery and select first overall, as well as not being able fall back more than one draft slot. There are talks of altering the systems so that teams could drop to the fourth or possibly the six slot. Odds of winning the lottery are 25 percent for the worst team to 0.5 percent for the 14th seed. This could be altered too. They are also looking at the possibility of looking at a team over a five year span.The NHL may get rid of having ‘lists’ for shooters taking part in the shootout.Illegal testing of draft prospects could be $250,000.
Sabres GM Tim Murray will look to start contract extension talks with Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno to see if they are interested in signing on long-term.
Murray said there were no offers that were remotely close for Tyler Myers or Christian Ehrhoff at the deadline. Cap recapture on Ehrhoff’s deal are a concern and affects trade scenarios.
Five years ago the Panthers asked the Flyers for Claude Giroux when the Flyers inquired about Jay Bouwmeester. The Flyers obviously said no. The Kings asked the Flyers for Sean Couturier when they were shopping Jonathan Bernier.
Oilers owner Daryl Katz is thought to be the driving force behind the Oilers draft Nail Yakupov over Ryan Murray.
Friedman asked Ilya Kovalchuk at the Olympics if he would return to the NHL, Kovalchuk laughed and said he has three years left on his KHL deal and we’ll see.
- Mike Harrington: “No shock the NHL is worried about tanking for top picks, given what’s gone on in the NBA and the charade #Sabres pulled in October.” … “@JeremyWGR et al – charade was starting season w/4 teen-agers, first team in NHL to play a single game in 18 years. Trading UFAs is fine. The Sabres have traded their UFAs and have bad NHL players now. Fair enough. Starting 4 teen-agers was an open tank. That’s my point.”
- Randy Miller of NJ.com: Devils Martin Brodeur said back when he, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter were unrestricted free agent in 2012, Parise was “pretty close” to remaining with the Devils and luring Suter. Brodeur signed a two-year $9 million deal with the Devils, Parise and Suter signed with the Wild.
“Listen, I was on the phone with Zach while I was doing my thing two years ago,” Brodeur said. “We were in the same boat. We’d talk and he’d ask me, ‘Are you going to come back?’ We had a lot of conversations. I was supposed to get on the phone with Suter. I never got to the phone with him, but we were talking about it.”
“Zach was pretty close to coming back here,” Brodeur said. “It’s not something that he wanted at no cost getting out of New Jersey, like other guys when they hit free agency you knew it was all over for them. He and Suter were pretty close, and anywhere they were going to go, it was a package deal probably.”
- Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs RFA Nazem Kadri won’t be talking about contract talks “until the deal gets done.” He did say that “negotiations are continuing and the lines of communication are open”. Assistant GM Claude Loiselle (handling most of the talks) added, “We’re talking, we’re going back and forth, but historically, we don’t comment on specifics.”
- Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post: Flyers Matt Read is entering the last year of his deal and will get a nice raise from the $900,000. He would like to stay with the Flyers.
“I would love to stay here,” Read said. “Philadelphia’s obviously a great market to play hockey in. It’s a great bunch of guys here.
“If it comes down to the line, I would fight for everyone in our locker room. I enjoy being here and I’d love to stay here for longer if the right opportunity presents itself.”
- Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News: Sabres Cody Hodgson is looking for a long-term, big money contract. The Sabres would prefer giving Hodgson a ‘bridge’ contract, maybe something similar to Tyler Ennis’s two-year, $5.6 million deal from 2012.
- Sarah McLellan of the AZ Central: Coyotes RFA Mikkel Boedker is still looking for a new deal.
“There’s still time before camp starts,” said Assistant General Manager Brad Treliving, who is handling the negotiations with Boedker’s agent, Jarrett Bousquet. “There’s still time before we play games that count for points. We’d like to get it done. It’s not done, but we’ll continue to sort of grind away at it here.”
If they don’t have a deal done by September 11th, he won’t be able to participate in the start of their training camp.
- Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington: Capitals RFA Marcus Johansson is thought to be looking for an extension worth more than Rangers Carl Hagelin signed, two-years and $4.5 million. The Capitals have 21 players signed with just under $2.665 million salary cap space available.
- Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Blues Alex Pietrangelo is still looking for a new deal. Gordon looks at some player contracts. Drew Doughty: $56 million over eight years. Erik Karlsson: $45.5 million over seven years. Tyler Myers: $38.5 million over seven years. Zach Bogosian: $36 million over seven years. Oliver Ekman-Larson: $33 million over six years. P.K. Subban: $5.75 million over two years. If they go long-term, Pietrangelo could fall between Doughty and Myers, maybe in the Karlsson range.
- Igor Eronko: Former Rangers defenseman Steve Eminger has agreed to terms with Admiral of the KHL, pending a physical.
- Igor Eronko: Predators RFA Daniel Bang signed one-year deal with Lausanne of the Swiss league.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: The Lightning put Brendan Mikkelson on waivers.
- Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal: Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk left yesterday’s game against the Blackhawks with a stinger after he was run over by teammate Teemu Hartikainen. He expect to be able to go on Tuesday, but will be re-evaluated today in Denver.
“From the top of my head to the back of my neck it was burning. I’d never had that happen before,” said Dubnyk. “I could move my fingers and stuff, so I knew I was OK but I didn’t want to move because everything was on fire.
“I couldn’t feel the back of my head for 25 minutes, but they said that was just part of the nerve thing. That’s gone now.
“It’s still stiff to look over one of my shoulders.”
Buffalo Sabres via twitter: Sabres Tyler Ennis left yesterday’s game with an upper-body injury.
- Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: Senators forward Guillaume Latendresse is getting closer to returning to the lineup. A Specialist told him two weeks ago that his headaches weren’t concussion related. It will be a coaches decision if he’ll get into the lineup tonight.
- Jeremy Rutherford via twitter: The Blues have decided they won’t be signing Jason Arnott.
- David Pagnotta via twitter: Kristian Huselius announced on AIK’s website that he’ll be retiring due to continuous hip issues. He only played in 5 games this season. Huselius said,
“It has become worse and worse every game I played. So I have taken the decision to stop with hockey completely.”
- Helene Elliott via twitter: Kings Anze Kopitar’s initial diagnosis of Grade 2 MCL sprain was accurate. Technically the Kings could suspend Kopitar and Willie Mitchell as they got hurt during the lockout and can’t start the season. GM Lombardi said he would talk to the higher-ups about it, though may not pursue it.
- Stephen Whyno via twitter: Capitals Tom Poti is pain free and “pretty confident” that he’ll be cleared to take part in training camp.
- Kevin Snow via twitter: Sabres Tyler Ennis said that he’s 100% and not bothered by the shoulder injury he sustained in Switzerland.
- Tim Panaccio via twitter: If Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros is not able to start the season, they are in big trouble. Meszaros said: ”Sometimes, I am really sore and I can’t push off. I’m still weak [in heel]. It’s a matter of time before I get my strength back”
- Randy Miller via twitter: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren on Daniel Briere’s wrist injury: ”Danny Briere is a little bit of a concern. We’ll get the information on that over the next few days.”
Here is a list of players that have signed contracts to play overseas during the NHL lockout.

A Canada-Russia series in the works … NHL-CHL reach agreement … Kane, Fowler, Ennis, Klein and Smith sign extensions
- Sam Carchidi via twitter: Players will receive 8% escrow in October, receiving an average of $204,000.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: Hockey Canada and the NHLPA are discussing a Canada-Russia series as part of the 40th anniversary of their 1972. They still need to more about it, and it’s far from done. Glenn Schiiler via twitter: Schiiler said the deal is close.
- Jeff Marek via twitter: The NHL and CHL have a one year agreement that deal with placement of players. 1. “Any 18 year old player who played in the NHL last season may be assigned to the AHL.” 2. “When the lockout ends NHL teams can either sign unsigned picks and keep them in the NHL, or recall signed picks playing in the CHL and keep them in the NHL. This must be done within 7 days of the date NHL’ers have to report after the lockout. “
- Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe: Dupont wonders that if there is a prolonged lockout, that Tim Thomas may reconsider sitting out a year, finishing out the last year of his contract. If the season started on January 1st, he’d have 8 months of rest. He would receive a pro-rated salary of $3 million. If GM Peter Chiarelli were to deal him, he’d likely only get “a dollar bill or a bag of pucks.”
- Ken Wiebe via twitter: Evander Kane signed a 6 year, $31.5 million with the Winnipeg Jets.
- Eric Stephens of the OC Register: The Ducks signed Cam Fowler to a 5 year contract extension worth $20 million.
- John Vogl of the Buffalo News: The Sabres signed Tyler Ennis to a 2 year deal worth $5.625 million.
“I think the biggest significance for us prior to [the lockout] was that it allows once we know we’re going to get started to get started with the full group,” Regier said, “and not have to concern ourselves with, in any kind of hurrying fashion, try and get a deal done with Tyler Ennis. It allows us to focus on the preparation of the game versus any contractual issues.”
- Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: The Predators have signed Kevin Klein to a 5 year contract extension worth $14.5 million, and Craig Smith to a 2 year deal worth $4 million. Klein will get $3 million in the first 3 years, and $2.75 million in the last 2.
Bruins looking for top Dman … Nothing new on Subban … AHL to get TV deal if lockout … Ennis-Sabres talking … Possible Oilers targets next year
- Dany Picard of CSNNE: Speculation is that the Bruins are looking to add a top pair defenseman to play with Zdeno Chara, and one of the popular names is Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle. A source close to Yandle said he “would love to play for the Bruins.” To get someone like Yandle, the Bruins may have to offer up David Krejci.
- Dave Stubbs via twitter: Stubbs was told yesterday morning that there is nothing new to report regarding contract talks between P.K. Subban and Canadiens.
- Chris Botta via twitter: The AHL has a deal with Sportsnet for additional games if there is a lockout. The AHL has talked with NBC Sports and regional sports networks about airing games if there is a lockout.
- Ken Warren via twitter: Senators Erik Karlsson says he has a few lockout options, “Russia is one, (but) I don’t know if you want to go there.” The Swedish Elite Leauge is not allowing lockout players.
- Helene St. James via twitter: According to Red Wings Henrik Zetterberg, “I don’t have any backup plan now.”
- John Vogl via twitter: Tyler Ennis and the Sabres are continuing contract talks, with the lockout looming there is no additional pressure to get a deal done.
- Jonathan Willis of the Edmonton Journal: 4 free agent defenseman the Oilers could target next summer are Alex Edler, Rob Scuderi, Ian White and Jordan Leopold.
Canadiens reportedly offer Subban a 2 year deal … Doan, the Canucks and Sabres … Ennis talks to resume
- TSN: RDS is reporting the Canadiens have offered P.K. Subban a 2 year deal worth $5.5 million, but both sides are far apart as Subban is looking for a longer deal. Subban’s agent, Mark Guy told TVA Sports, “I don’t see anything being done in the short term.” L.A. Lariviere via twitter: Subban’s agent denied the report that Subban had a 2 year, $5.5 million offer, ”if that’s what they’re saying, it’s inaccurate.” Jimmy Murphy via twitter: An NHL source, “PK Subban should take Habs’ offer and earn bigger one. But maybe he and agent want more term and are worried about CBA.”
- Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: There were multiple reports that the Shane Doan visited the Canucks on Tuesday night. This could indicate he’s moving on from the Coyotes, or at least investigating his options more thoroughly. Brad Ziemer via twitter: Doan is the guy the Canucks really want, but they’ve also been talking with Jason Arnott. He could fit in as their 3rd line center.
- Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province: The Canucks are rumored to have interest in Panthers Nick Bjugstad, but they are reluctant to move him. The Canucks “would have interest if Bjugstad came with at least a draft pick because Luongo should command at least that and not merely be a salary dump.” The Canucks are looking for a top 6 forward and have great interest in Doan. If the Canucks were to take on a high Doan salary, it could be offset in the short term by trading Mason Raymond ($2.275 million for 1 year). Until the Doan situation is resolved, Luongo is likely to remain with the Canucks. If Bjugstad is untouchable, Sean Bergenheim could be a nice piece in a Luongo package. He’s 28 with a $2.75 million cap hit for the next 3 years.
- Nick Veronica of the Buffalo News: There is still no meeting scheduled between Doan and the Sabres yet.
“No, we have not met with [Doan], and I don’t know whether we will meet with him,” Regier said, well-versed in general manager lingo. “We’re monitoring the situation, and I’d leave it at that.”
“What I would say about Shane’s situation is that I admire the level of loyalty he’s provided to his club,” Regier said. “He’s spent his whole career with that organization, and I think that’s meaningful, and I admire that, but in the event he’s not going to stay there, we certainly would have an interest.”
GM Darcy Regier on contract talks with Tyler Ennis,
“We spoke with his agent yesterday (Tuesday) and I think that will continue today,” Regier said. “That’s always a hard one [to say how close the sides are]. Close. … The positive is it’s moving in the right direction.”
- Kevin Paul Dupont if the Boston Globe: The Bruins will have to deal with some big name RFAs/UFAs next July 1st if they don’t re-sign before then:
RFAs — Milan Lucic ($4.1 million); Tyler Seguin ($3.5 million); Brad Marchand ($2.5 million), Jordan Caron ($1.1 million), and Tuukka Rask ($3.5 million).
UFAs — Nathan Horton ($4 million), Andrew Ference ($2.25 million), and Tim Thomas ($5 million).
Canucks GM Mike Gillis is in no rush to move Roberto Luongo, perhaps focusing more on trying to bring in Shane Doan.
- Mike Sunnucks of the Phoenix Business Journal: Potential Phoenix Coyotes owner is about $20 million short to buy the team. The deal is on “tenuous ice” but could still happen. Jamison is looking for new investors and partners. The NHL is looking for $170 million, they bought the team for $140 million. Bill Daly said they are still confident the sale will be completed and the Coyotes will stay in Phoenix. The article was posted on Saturday but Sunnucks reported
The prospective Coyotes buyer met with free agent Coyotes captain Shane Doan last night. Doan is pondering leaving the Coyotes if Jamison can’t assure him a sale is near.
The Kings and Predators have been said to be new players on Doan.
Links From Jeff Miller OC Register on where Bobby Ryan could end up.
- Elliot Olshanshy of Sports World Report: The Flyers make the most sense, as Ryan could flourish beside Daniel Briere. It’s unsure of what they could offer. The Red Wings have the pieces to land Ryan. The price for Western Conference team may be than for an Eastern team.
- Benjamin Klein of the Bleacher Report: Klein thinks the Avalanche should make a move for Ryan. They have a nice young core with Duchene, Landeskog, Parenteau, O’Reilly and Johnson. Adding Ryan could move them up in the West. Adrian Dater in the Denver Post said the Avs would be foolish not to trade Paul Stastny for Ryan.
- The Fourth Period: The Sabres are dreaming of Shane Doan, but there are no guarantees there. The Buffalo News said the Sabres could turn their attention to Ryan. They are not willing to offer up Tyler Ennis or any of their other young forwards. They may offer defenseman like Andrej Sekera, Jordan Leopold or Mark Pysyk. The Ducks would still want 1 or 2 forwards though.
5 possible Leafs picks … Rangers shopping Dubinsky … Pens haven’t made Staal available yet … Sabres notes … Demers out in SJ?
- Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun: 5 players that the Maple Leafs could be interested in drafting at #5. Mikhail Grigorenko, Filip Forsberg, Matthew Dumba, Jacob Trouba and Radek Faksa.
- Team 1200 Ottawa: Rumors out of New York are that the Rangers are aggressively shopping center Brandon Dubinsky.
- Rob Rossi via twitter: As of late last night, the Penguins haven’t informed interested teams if Jordan Staal is available or not. Several teams have already inquired. The Hurricanes will be big on Staal if he becomes available, offering multiple players. A deal won’t have to be wrapped up at the draft.
- Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News: Sabres GM Darcy Regier:
“We are very active as it relates to finding ways to improve our hockey team,” Regier said during the team’s draft preview gathering with reporters. “Some of the names you hear that are out there, we’ve had conversations with those teams. I think it’s way too early to know whether or not anything will happen. There are a lot of teams like us in similar positions.”
“More calls have gone out than I’ve been receiving but that doesn’t mean it won’t change,” Regier said. “The tendency is for this thing to ramp up as you approach the draft and when you get on the floor, it gets a little crazier.”
“There’s some obvious guys we don’t have any interest in talking about right now and you can figure out who they are. But I make it a practice to call teams and ask them for players that I assume they’re not willing to trade, nor do they want to trade. And other GMs do the same with me.
“You let them know if they change their mind to please give me a call and I certainly do a lot more of that now than I used to.”
The Sabres are believed to be shopping Derek Roy. Regier thinks it may not be worth the cost to move up in the draft. They have not started negotiations with RFA Tyler Ennis and Patrick Kaleta. Jochen Hecht has been cleared from his concussion, but it’s unlikely he’ll be back.
- Jeff Marek via twitter: With the Sharks bringing in Brad Stuart, the odd man out on their blueline may be Jason Demers.
- David Pollak via twitter: It’s been confirmed that Todd McLellan will be back next season with the Sharks.

- David Alter via twitter: The Maple Leafs have placed Colton Orr on waivers. Jonas Siegel via twitter: Orr will be assigned to the Marlies if he clears.
