Some off-season decisions for the Flames … Kreider staying on College … Bolland and Brower back for Hawks … Pronger day-to-day still
  • Ian Busby of the Calgary Sun: Flames forward Curtis Glencross potted 24 goals this season, and now he’s looking to cash in. “I want a long-term deal. That’s our biggest factor right now.” He made $1.2 million this past season, and hopes to get something done with the Flames. Alex Tanguay, Brendan Morrison, Steve Staios, Anton Babchuk, Brett Carson, and Henrik Karlsson are UFA’s for the Flames. It’s unlikely that Staios will be back. Karlsson hopes to stay in Calgary, and he thinks they might be interested.
  • Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter: It was reported last week that Maple Leafs prospect Leo Komarov would be coming over to North America, but he told that he’s more likely to stay in the KHL.
  • Dave Naylor via twitter: “ calculates that Glendale’s plan would bring its spending to almost $400 million on a team valued at $134 million.”
  • Jim Jamieson of the Vancouver Province: With Manny Malhotra’s injury and Raffi Torres’s suspension, Cody Hodgson and Victor Oreskovich joined the Canucks yesterday. Hodgson centered Mason Raymond and Jannik Hansen at practice. Oreskovich could slot in beside Max Lapierre and Tanner Glass on the 4th line.
  • Brian Hamilton and Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune: It looks like both David Bolland and Troy Brower will be in the lineup for the Blackhawks during their 1st round matchup with the Canucks. Bolland has been out since March 9th with a concussion. Brower has been out with a shoulder injury since last week.
  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Bob Hartley was a candidate to coach the Senators before they hired Cory Clouston, and was considered a candidate this time around, signed a deal to coach in the Swiss Elite League in Zurich.
  • Tim Panaccio of Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger is still listed as day-to-day and no one knows or is saying if he’ll be ready to go in Game 1. He did not practice yesterday but took part in a special team’s meeting and did some off-ice rehab.
