NHL Rumors: Devils, Islanders, Blues, Jets, Maple Leafs, Gilmour and the Bruins

  • Randy Miller of NJ.com: It’s very likely the Devils will make a strong attempt to sign Cory Schneider to a long-term contract. His deal expires after next season. If they are not able to sign him to an extension, they could look to trade him before the start of next season and possibly re-sign Martin Brodeur.  Schneider has said he’s not sure if he’d sign an extension this summer if an offer was fair or if he’d rather play out next season. Miller spoke with Schneider’s agent, Mike Liut. (many questions/answers in link above)

    Q: That sounds like you might think Schneider playing out his contract could be the better route.

    Liut: We don’t know what New Jersey’s thinking. Let’s not be presumptuous. When I get into these conversations with writers, the one thing that scares me is it comes off that Cory is presumptuously deciding today that is what it’s going to be and we’re making decisions. We don’t have anything. We have a clean slate. To say that we haven’t made any decisions would be to overstate our position. There’s no offer.”

  • Arthur Staple of Newsday: Evgeni Nabokov would like to continue playing for the Islanders. The Islanders and Nabokov’s camp won’t talk until after the season. He could do a one-year deal. The Isles may look to acquire a young but experience goalie to be their No. 1 next year.
  • Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Blues Derek Roy likely won’t be back next year and they could use the $4 million that will be off the books to attempt re-sign Ryan Miller. The Jets may look to deal either Evander Kane or Dustin Byfuglien to shake up their core.
  • David Pagnotta: Pagnotta thinks that trade talks involving Jets Evander Kane will pick up this offseason. The Jets will look to retool.
  • Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: Talk of whether or not Evander Kane will be with the Jets next year has begun again. He has been in the rumor for years, dating back to 2011 and a potential deal with the Flyers. Other teams have also been part of the rumors. It’s not known if Kane has asked for a trade. Kane carries a $5.25 million cap hit for the next four seasons. The Jets could keep Kane and hope that he matures both on and off the ice. The Jets could also tire of the situation and move him like the Bruins did with Tyler Seguin.
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”Go down the list, Nonis may be looking to dangle some guys like Lupul. Maybe he needs to shake up the core to help Bolland” … ”I think there is a strong appetite for Leaf fans, and there should be, to bring back Dave Bolland
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”Maybe we need to start talking about likes of Lupul, Phaneuf, go down the list. Some of these guys that have been unable to deliver” … ”Maybe they [players mentioned in previous tweet] should be part of the discussion of change?”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”McClement for the most part has been a good player for the Leafs & mgmt will want him back.” … ”Raymond too, but you won’t get that guy back for $1 mill. He’ll be $2.5-$3.”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”I think the Leafs believe they have players in the AHL that can step in and fill Kulemin’s role”
  • Hope Smoke: Darren Dreger: ”If I’m Nonis I’m worried. Sure I can fire the coach, but would a new guy fire up and ignite this bunch?” … ”Leiweke said to me, a few months back, that he was very supportive of hockey ops and would stay away”
  • Murray Pam: Agent Darryl Wolski is reporting that Doug Gilmour is leaving the Kingston Frontenacs (OHL) to coach Lev Praha of the KHL.
  • Matt Kalman: Bruins coach Claude Julien will rest players this week. All players will travel with the team.
  • CapGeek: There will be quite a few teams that will have bonus overages this year that will be carried over to next year. The Bruins will likely have the biggest cap penalty.

Morning Rumors: Sabres, Rangers, Blues, Isles, Kings, Pens, Canucks, Preds, Leafs, Devils, Wild and Oilers

  • Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News: The Sabres and Ryan Miller haven’t had any contract talks.

    “I still don’t know what to say. There’s been a change here even since there was a change here before,” he said, referring to the hiring of new GM Tim Murray. “So it’s like I’m waiting to see what the plan is and waiting to see what they have to offer. We haven’t talked about anything with regard to contracts and we haven’t talked about anything with regard to trades. They’re doing their business.”

    On if Miller has said he wants out or if he’s willing to stay.

    “That’s not really something I want to discuss with you guys,” Miller said. “It’s a private conversation about a business transaction. Really, that’s what it comes down to. I’m waiting to see kind of what the plans are around here. that would kind of give a little more indication.”

  • TSN Insider Trading: Dreger: Ryan Callahan could be looking for a seven-year contract in the $6.5 to $7 million range. That is too much money for the Rangers. 50/50 that he gets moved before the Olympic break. A Callahan to the Blues for a Chris Stewart package deal is still there. If Dan Girardi doesn’t get done soon, could mean he’s interested in testing the market.

    Bob McKenzie: Looking like Thomas Vanek wants to at least test the free agent market. Islanders GM Garth Snow will continue to try and sign him, but he’s at least talking to teams to see what he could get for him. The Kings and Penguins are looking for a scoring winger. The Penguins have cap issues.

    Bob McKenzie: The Canucks blueline is dealing with some injuries, so the Raphael Diaz acquisition may not mean another defenseman is on his way out, ie, trying to get Alex Elder to waive his no trade clause.

    Bob McKenzie: The Predators are trying to get a 1st or 2nd round pick for David Legwand.

  • TSN Insider Trading: LeBrun: It’s possible that the Islanders trade Vanek before the deadline and save themselves his salary. The Kings and Penguins are interested, but with being so close to the cap, it’s harder for them to take him on beforehand. The asking price is three assets, any combination of a first-round pick, a young player, and a prospect.

    Bob McKenzie: The Islanders have another asset in defenseman Andrew MacDonald. They could try to sign to a deal in the $4 to $5 million range, but they have lots of young defenseman in the pipeline.

    Bob McKenzie: A lot of teams are calling the Sabres about Steve Ott, maybe more so than Matt Moulson. Other Sabres who could be on the move are Ryan Miller, Henrik Tallinder, Drew Stafford and Cody McCormick.

    Darren Dreger: The Leafs have three options with Dave Bolland: re-sign him now, if they don’t like his salary wishes they can use him as their own rental, and lastly they could look to trade him.

  • Craig Davis of the Sun Sentinel: Panthers goalie Tim Thomas would consider re-signing with the Panthers if they want him back.

    “I’m certainly willing to entertain the idea. I haven’t talked to the club about that,” Thomas said Monday as the Panthers returned to work following three one-sided losses on the road.

    “I was hoping by this time to be seeing more team success. That’s been a little bit difficult. Having said that, it’s a process. I knew coming into it where the team was last year. I bought into this process, and what we’re trying to do is turn it around.”

  • Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: The Devils are showing interest in Flames Mike Cammalleri according to Elliotte Friedman. The Flames are looking for prospects and/or draft picks. The Devils don’t have 1st round pick or a 4th round pick.
  • Sarah McLellan of the AZ Republic: Stars Ray Whitney is in the last year of his deal, and the Coyotes could be interested. Both the player and the team are familiar with each other. With also wanting to score 400 career goals, he could play another season.
  • Brian Compton: Arthur Staple saying that Thomas Vanek turned down a seven-year deal worth $50 million.
  • Ken Campbell of the Hockey News: Thomas Vanek carries a big salary cap hit, so it might take some creativity for a team to add him. The Sabres retained $1.4 million of Vanek’s salary cap hit, bringing it down to $5.75 million for the Islanders. If the Islanders retained half of that, he would be about a $2.9 million hit for a new team. With about 80 percent of the season done by trade deadline day, he would only cost about $590,000. A reason the Islanders may want to do something like that as a team, like the Wild , may offer a little more like Charlie Coyle, Jason Zucker, Justin Fontaine, Matt Dumba or Mario Lucia. There is talk that the Wild could get Vanek for nothing in the summer, but they are in the playoff race. Another reason of the Wild is not to let the Kings or Penguins get him. The Wild would then be able to offer an eight year deal if they acquired him by trade.
  • Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province: Gallagher wonders if the Canucks could get into the running with Thomas Vanek. It would give the Sedin’s a sniper. Ryan Kesler could then center Zack Kassian and Alex Burrows or Chris Higgins. To get Vanek they would likely have to lose someone from their blueline and likely more. Would be a difficult move to make.
  • John Vogl of the Buffalo News: The Sabres and Bruins talked trade at last years draft, but a Vanek for Tyler Seguin deal fell through. The Bruins were looking for another NHL-ready player off the Sabres roster.
  • Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star: Leafs Nikolai Kulemin’s name keeps coming up in trade talk as they look to clear cap space for Dave Bolland’s return. The Oilers and maybe the Panthers could be a good fit. The Leafs would be looking for picks and prospects.
  • Erik Erlendsson: Steven Stamkos’ return on Saturday is still not set in stone, still may not happen until after the Olympics.
  • Mark Spector: Elliotte Friedman reporting that the Kings and Oilers could be talking Sam Gagner. If Spector were the with the Oilers, he’d want Dwight King.
  • Dan Tencer: The Kings need scoring help and Tencer thinks the Oilers would be nice trading partners.
  • Dennis Bernstein: The Kings will need to work on their blueline this summer. Options if they don’t sign before hand could be Andrew MacDonald, Dan Girardi and Brooks Orpik. They currently don’t have a true No.2 to play with Doughty. Jake Muzzin will be a solid 2nd pairing in time, but he is still developing.
  • Jason Gregor: There are only five times that are more than four points out of the playoffs (before last night’s games):  Islanders, Panthers, Flames, Oilers and Sabres. Should be a sellers market.
  • Pittsburgh Penguins: No update on Penguins Kris Letang’s illness and will not travel with the team to Buffalo.
  • Mike Heika: Scouting the Coyotes – Stars: Blue Jackets, Leafs, Ducks, Canucks, Lightning, Flyers, Rangers.

Morning Hits II: Vanek, Wild, Seguin, Devils, Rielly and Islanders

  • Michael Russo of the Star Tribune: Wild’s Jason Pominville on Thomas Vanek.

    “It’s funny,” said Pominville, the former Sabres captain who faces his former team and buddy for the first time Monday night. “It feels like I answer that question at least once or twice a day. It’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out. He’s a very smart guy and talented player. I’m sure he’ll take his time and make the best decision when the time comes.”

    Vanek is trying not to think of free agency.

    “I know right now we’re rebuilding and have a young team and a lot of good young players,” Vanek said during a phone interview Friday. “That’s the reason why I just wanted to hold off and wait to see what happens here. With that said, I’ve never said I wouldn’t sign an extension here. I have enjoyed my eight years going on nine in Buffalo. It’s a great hockey town. The people really live for the Buffalo Sabres, I live in a great neighborhood and my kids love it, my wife loves it. And that goes a long way.

    “So whatever happens on the business side of it — if I leave or stay — I’m not going to be one of those guys that says anything bad about Buffalo because I’ve enjoyed my time here and still do.”

    The Wild will have the salary cap next summer to go after Vanek, or they could look at spending money on a goaltender or defenseman.

  • Kevin Paul Dupont: Stars center Tyler Seguin has lost 53 of 88 faceoffs (34 percent). Was among the reasons the Bruins had him playing the wing.
  • Dan Rosen: About the Devils: “Devils: There is no go-to scorer and the D isn’t activating enough. Loosen the leash on Larsson. Henrique should play C. Loktionov out.”
  • Corey PronmanMorgan Rielly thoughts:

    “Rielly sticking though depends on your eval of him now, AND if you think the Leafs can do well. The latter point is in heavy debate. Like if TOR thinks he’s a quality player ATM and think they can make a run can see an argument to keep. But also good case not to. And the optimistic scenario is TOR battles through a bad conference, makes the playoffs, and Rielly progresses really well and is a factor.

  • B.D Gallof: NY Islanders thoughts:

    “So vets coming up on next contract vs kids via pipeline will be an interesting dichotomy as #isles start to gauge value vs productivity. This is not to say #isles won’t look to upgrade but seems pretty clear by habit/how they operate of how next few yrs will be. #isles framework seems to really buy into that direction especially in salary cap NHL – I think this will bear out in next few yrs. As for Bouchard… As I said earlier today… Fact sat already a big telling sign from coaches/mgt: competitive team for roles. I believe that #isles are going to use same system – keep cost down to hold key cogs/talent/core – and have cycling pieces find way to team. So as this season goes forward, you get why Strome/Reinhart not in team quite yet. Vets a plenty. But also how things will shake out have solid pieces with de Haan, Strome, Anders lee all waiting and likely as season callups to gain some gm exp when injuries happen. So in short: 10gm mark we get glimmers/indications of this years #isles / 20gm mark – some clarity. But not before either.”

VIDEO: Hockey Night in Canada Hotstove and Don Cherry’s Coach’s Corner

Hockey Night in Canada Hotstove: Contract talks with the Maple Leafs and Dion Phaneuf will begin soon. He could take a little less, but a longer term. The Rangers are not going to panic and feel they just need some more practicing together. Term is holding up a Henrik Lundqvist and Rangers deal. The Canadiens looked at the defense market but decide they will stay with what they have for the time being. Trading is difficult as so many teams don’t have cap space. Teams are interested in Thomas Vanek, but there is a perception that he’ll sign with Minnesota for next year. Teams may not want to give up the assets to get him if they know they don’t have a chance to keep him. The Hurricanes are one of the teams that might be interested Manny Malhotra.

Don Cherry’s Coach’s Corner: Staged fighting, Morgan Rielly, Matt Duchene, Patrick Roy, Tyler Seguin and Tomas Hertl’s goal celebration.

Morning Rumors: Vanek, Chaisson, Depres, Ducks, Penguins, Gardiner, Ryan, Glencross and the Flyers

  • Jim Matheson: Lots of people think that Thomas Vanek may take a pay-cut and sign with the Wild in the summer. He went to school in Minnesota and is good friends with Jason Pominville.

    Nathan MacKinnon is living J.S. Giguere’s basement.

    The Bruins tried to get Alex Chaisson included in the Loui Eriksson-Tyler Seguin trade. The Stars sent Rielly Smith and Matt Fraser instead.

    With the strong play of Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta, Simon Despres may now be used as trade bait.

    The Ducks need a defenseman with Sheldon Souray and Luca Sbisa out. The Leafs are looking to move John-Michael Liles, the Flyers have Andrej Meszros and the Penguins have Despres.

    The Penguins will look for a backup goalie.

  • Elliotte Friedman of CBC: Filip Kuba is still hoping to get an NHL deal.

    Mark Messier will be re-joining that Oilers as a consultant.

    Before Cory Schneider was sent to the Devils, one rumored deal was to the Oilers for their 1st and 2nd round picks, as well as Martin Marincin. Big asking price but would be trading a goalie within their division.

    There has been some talk between the Maple Leafs and some teams about Jake Gardiner. If the Leafs are going to consider trading Gardiner, it would be for a young asset or assets. Friedman speculates that teams like the Stars, Panthers and Wild might be interested. Gardiner was impressive during the Boston series last year, but some scouts still have questions.

    Word is the Ducks received four serious offers for Bobby Ryan. A couple reasons as to why he landed in Ottawa are that the Senators didn’t need to send salary back and that the Ducks wanted a 1st round pick included.

    If Ilya Bryzgalov signed in the KHL, he’d have to clear waivers if he returned to the NHL.

  • Frank Seravlli of the Philadelphia Daily News: The Flyers have been “sniffing around” but may have trouble finding a partner this early in the season. The Flyers have been looking at Curtis Glencross. The Flames are desperate for someone to play with Mark Giordano, and the Flyers have a bunch of high-priced defensemen. Glencross has a no-trade clause. The Flyers scouted the Flames last week, Ron Hextall (assistant GM) and Chris Pryor (director of scouting) attended. Dave Brown (head pro scout) watched the Flames in Columbus. The Flames scouted the Flyers home opener last week. The Flyers also had a scout at the Flames home opener. The Flames had a scout watching the Flyers and Hurricanes. The Flyers may also be interested in Sven Baertschi.
  • Bob McKenzie on NHL Live: Flyers coaching change, Holmgren’s future and the spin-o-rama.

Morning Hits: Devils, Spezza on Alfredsson, Benn to LW, Blackhawks No. 2 center and Ducks sign deal with Utah

  • Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Reports are that Philadelphia 76ers ownership group are interested in buying the Devils. Andrew Barroway’s group was trying to buy the Devils, but their timeframe to negotiate a deal technically expired last month. Barroway’s group is still trying to buy the team and according to one source, they already have deals with the NHL and some banks. Forbes is saying they have loaned the Devils $30 million.
  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Jason Spezza on Daniel Alfredsson leaving.

    “I spoke to him the night before free agency, and we had a really good conversation, but I was shocked to hear it at that point,” Spezza told the Sun Wednesday from Toronto.

    “We had talked about two weeks before he left and I had a good feeling he was going to come back and play. He still wasn’t even 100% committed. Once he said he was going to play, I just assumed it was going to be for us.”

    Spezza admitted he did try to talk him out of it.

    “At that point his mind was already made up,” said Spezza. “We talked about a few things. I don’t feel 100% comfortable talking about what we talked about. I have too much respect for Alf and the process I know was hard for him.

    “But all I can say is I would have liked to have seen him back with our club. I still feel like we have a very good team. You don’t have to agree with somebody to understand why they’re doing something.”

  • Dan Rosen of NHL.com: Blackhawks Brandon Pirri thinks he should be their second line center between Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp.

    “It’s something I think I’ve earned the opportunity to do and I have to take advantage of it,” Pirri told NHL.com. “I want to make that jump and I think I’m ready.”

    Coach Joel Quenneville said that Brandon Saad could be given a chance to become their No. 2 center and thinks that Pirri could challenge for the spot.

    “Could [Pirri] do it? I think he could, but that’s a big job, and with him we’re looking for that consistency,” Quenneville told NHL.com. “We know he’s capable of doing a lot of good things offensively and defensively he’s improved over the last few years, but now game in and game out getting to that level of predictability that we want, that’s going to be the challenge. I think he’s capable of it for sure, so he’s one guy under consideration.”

  • Dennis Bernstein: The Ducks signed a multi-year agreement with the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL.

Trade Hits: Oilers, Coburn, Seguin, Cammalleri, Flyers and Edler

  • Dustin Nielson: The Flyers initially asked the Oilers for two second round picks this year and a second next year for Braydon Coburn.
  • David Pagnotta: The Flames talked to the Bruins about Tyler Seguin. Unless the Bruins get an amazing offer, Seguin isn’t going anywhere.
  • The Fourth Period: The Flames are actively looking to make some moves. They had spoke with Vincent Lecavalier. They continue to entertain offers for Michael Cammalleri. The Flames want to acquire a first or second line center, a top-six forward and a top-four defenseman.

    “(Free agency) is something that we don’t believe will necessarily fill all of our needs,” Feaster told the Calgary Herald. “We do feel, though, that there are some needs that we have — we still need to play the games, we still need to be competitive. There are some things that we are going to take a look at.”

  • Craig Custance of ESPN: After the signing of Vincent Lecavalier, the Flyers will have to move out a player or two. Trade talks involving Braydon Coburn will pickup again.
