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: 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.

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”

  • Adrian Dater: Avs Ryan O’Reilly will play tonight, with Paul Stastny a possibility.
  • Terry Koshan: Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle on Jonathan Bernier: ”Bernier has a low-grade muscle strain. It is in the groin area.

  • Hope Smoke: Maple Leafs Dave Poulin: ”We’re dealing with this on Bolland. Once medically cleared, it’s up to the player to let us know when he’s ready to go” … ”At this point it’s not up to a doctor, it’s up to Bolland. We’re hoping he’s getting stronger and closer to returning” … ”Bolland hasn’t been 100% comfortable in a full practice where there are competition drills and grinding”

Morning Rumors and Notes: Bourque, Stastny, Jagr, Jokinen, Stars-Jackets, Bozon, Mitchell and Berra

  • Guillaume Lefrancois of CBC: The Canadiens will have to decide if they will buyout Rene Bourque this offseason. A buyout would cost them $3.67 million in total. Salary cap numbers would be $1.67 million for the first two year and $833,333 for the next two. If bought out, they would have 14 players under contract at a $44.96 million cap number. That number doesn’t include P.K. Subban (RFA) and Andrei Markov (UFA).
  • Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: Cooper wonders if this is summer the Predators will go after a big-name scorer. Avs Paul Stastny would fit the Predators style, but he will likely command a lot of money. The Preds could also go the trade route, looking to bring in some skill for some of their grit.
  • Randy Miller of NJ.com: Jaromir Jagr’s agent, Petr Svoboda.

    “I don’t want to jump the gun, but I think there’s a really great chance that he’s going to be a New Jersey Devil next year,” the Montreal-based agent told NJ.com.

    “Basically, Jags is very, very happy where he’s at, and I think it’s vice versa,” Svoboda said. “I don’t see why he should not be going back to New Jersey next year.”

    Jagr will be looking for a one-year deal and is not looking to break the bank.

    “I’ll put it to you this way: We’ve never gone to the highest bidder the last three years,” Svoboda said.

    “We’ll see when talks take place. If Lou decides to come to me before the season ends … basically it’s up to him. If Lou wants to talk after the season … whatever. Like I said, Jags really likes it there.”

  • Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Penguins Jussi Jokinen is a pending UFA, but he hopes to remain with the Pens.

    “You know, I really do like it here,” Jokinen said. “I like everything about this place.”

    With a week free agent class and his versatility to play all three forward positions, it could put him in a higher demand.

    “I just figure that it will take care of itself in the summer,” Jokinen said. “I don’t mind if we don’t talk until the summer, either. I really don’t care. There are a few free agents on this team, so I know they’ll be busy making decisions.

    “There is a lot they have to handle. So I totally understand that. But I do want to stay here.”

  • Aaron Portzline: The postponed game between the Blue Jackets and Stars will be made up, but dates haven’t been settled on. A third team may be asked to change a date so that they can fit the game in before the season ends on April 13th. Both teams are in the playoff race, so the game would/could affect both conferences.
  • David Staples: “I will be astonished if Garth Snow gives up his first this year to #Sabres. He will bet on his team being better next year.”
  • John Shannon: On Tim Bozon: “He remains in ICU, however doctors have indicated his condition remains critical but stable and improving.”
  • Adrian Dater: Avalanche have signed John Mitchell to a three-year extension worth $5.4 million and Reto Berra for three-years and $4.35 million.
  • Tom Gulitti: “Jagr now has 1,000 career professional goals from KHL, NHL, Czech league and international play (including playoffs).”
  • Capitals PR: “The #Caps improved to 22-8-3 this season when scoring first and 19-0-3 this season when leading after two periods.”

Trade Deadline Fallout I: Ducks, Canucks, Flames, Predators, Flyers, Wild, Caps and Leafs

  • The Fourth Period: The Ducks and Canucks had serious trade discussions about Ryan Kesler. Sources say that the Ducks offered Sami Vatenen, a first round pick and another player.

    “We entertained multiple offers in multiple situations and none of them fit with our long-term vision,” Gillis told the media after the deadline. “When you’re under-performing like we are, you get calls from lots of teams about lots of players.”

    The Penguins were also after Kesler. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that the Penguins were not convinced that Canucks ownership was willing to have Kesler traded a day after Roberto Luongo was traded. Talks with the Ducks could continue after the season. Canucks GM Mike Gillis is believed to be interested in Kyle Palmieri and Emerson Etem.

  • The Fourth Period: The Blue Jackets, Bruins, Devils, Ducks and Penguins showed interest in Flames Mike Cammalleri, but they didn’t go higher than a third round pick.

    “I’d rather take a chance on keeping him here and signing him than giving him away on a terrible deal,” Burke said in his post-deadline press conference.

  • Sam Carchidi: The Predators got some calls on Shea Weber. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said that he didn’t call the Predators about Weber. Weber is due a $13 million bonus on June 30th.
  • Chad Graff: “For those asking why Vanek only required one second rounder and Wild gave two for Moulson, the Wild didn’t have to give up a prospect.”
  • Chad Graff: Wild GM Chuck Fletcher on if Matt Moulson is just a rental: ”You never know. … But this is a move to win now.”
  • Wes Gilbertson: The Flames have already reached out to Mike Cammalleri’s agent about continuing contract negotiations.
  • Adam Vingan: There were five teams that were interested in Martin Erat, but the Coyotes offer was the most serious.
  • Hope Smoke: Leafs GM Dave Nonis on TSN Radio: ”I’m not against adding guys at the deadline. I feel the best time to improve your team is in June”

Trade Deadline Fallout II: Ligntning, Flames, Sabres, Pens, Caps, Jets, Hawks, Leafs, Devils and Flyers

  • Steve Zipay: Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said that there were several discussions with Martin St. Louis about the decision to trade him. Tells media to ask St. Louis “why the Rangers.”
  • Wes Gilbertson: Flames GM Brian Burke said they agreed on terms of a deal that would have seen them take on a contract, but the other team couldn’t make it happen by the deadline.
  • Buffalo Sabres: Sabres GM Tim Murray: “I didn’t come into today expecting to trade draft picks.” Liked the forward prospects #Sabres got though. “Heavy, skilled forwards.”
  • Pittsburgh Penguins: Penguins GM Ray Shero said they asked about Ryan Kesler, but there was not a deal to be made. Shero added that their goal was to increase their forward depth and they think they’ve done that.
  • Sky Kerstein: Capitals GM George McPhee on them getting Rostislav Klesla in the Martin Erat trade: ”it’s the only way Phoenix could do the deal”
  • Paul Friesen: Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff: ”I was close to paying some of those (high) prices (for a rental player).”
  • Ken Wiebe: Cheveldayoff said there was interest in some of their pending UFAs, but they weren’t in a sell-mode. Added that there were plenty of calls made on rental players, mostly forwards. He never talked about trading a first round pick.
  • Ed Tait: Cheveldayoff said there were no serious conversations about any of their core players.
  • Chris Kuc: Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman: ”I always just kind of chuckle when I see all these reports. I guess that’s the world we live in today.”
  • Dave Feschuk: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis said they are not ready for a rental player: ”When you can give up 1st-rd picks or top young players and not feel it, you’re ready.”
  • Dave Feschuk: Nonis said that he talked with other GMs whose ”teams with a chance to win the Cup” and they were complaining that the asking prices were too high.
  • Randy Miller:  Devils GM Lou Lamoriello on Martin Brodeur: ”it’s a shame that with no substance at different times and no facts that people say things.”
  • Tim Panaccio: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said that there were “no real discussions” on Ryan Kesler other than finding out what the Canucks wanted. No real offer was made.
