Bryzgalov gets $51.5 million over 9 years … Leafs were in on Carter and Richards … Flyers fallout … Cap ceiling/floor set … Burke won’t go big for MacArthur

  • Bob McKenzie via twitter: “Bryzgalov gets $48M in first 7 years of deal. $2.25M in Year in 8, $1.25M in Year 9. Let’s call it a 7 year, $48M deal. It’s 9 yrs/$51.5M.”
  • Darren Dreger via twitter: “Flyers asked for Kadri and Kulemin from the Leafs for Mike Richards. Toronto said they would consider it, but never heard back from Phi.” and “Leafs were also interested in Carter and Kadri was discussed, but Tor wouldn’t include Kulemin to close deal for Carter.” Pierre LeBrun via twitter: The Maple Leafs were in on Richards but feeling is that the Flyers may have wanted to move him to the Western Conference. DownGoesBrown via twitter: “If deals on the table were really Schenn/Simmonds from LA or Kadri/Kulemin from TOR, I can understand why the Flyers didn’t call Burke back.”
  • Dustin Leed via twitter: Leed is told the Flyers may not be done dealing, may be looking to get into top 3 in the draft. Leed thinks Bobrovsky rumors will now start, possibly in the package to move up in draft.
  • Rob Longley via twitter: Burke said he’s not willing to do a big long-term deal for Clarke MacArthur “for one good year.”
  • Darren Dreger via twitter: Robyn Regehr was informed yesterday about the possible trade with Buffalo. Hasn’t been given a deadline on when they need an answer by. “Robyn Regehr unlikely to decide tonight on whether to waive no move clause to clear trade to Buffalo”
  • Mark Spector via twitter: Spector’s been told that Smyth to Edmonton will happen, Kings can’t take back significant salary. Deal doesn’t have to happen at the draft, but does have to happen by July 1st.

    Leafs should offer Kadri + a piece for Schenn.

    an unproven player + for another unproven player? i doubt it. if anything, burke should have responded with kadri, a 1st and a 2nd for richards. i would have a tough time breaking up the kulemin/grabo/mac line, but he does have other assets to trade.

    the number of good centres available for trade just went down significantly, looks like burke is up $hit creek, cus b.richards most likely wont be in toronto.

    Now Lombardi, trade Smyth to EDM and get Jussi Jokinen via free agency. Think would be a great fit in LA.

    I may be in the small minority but I’m happy the Leafs didn’t get either of those 2 players (Carter and Richards) I don’t like the character of either one of those players – There’s a reason (other than Bryzgalov) Philadelphia wanted to unload them.

    Let’s be patient and wait for a better fit at center, there’s no rush.
