- Updated: July 4, 2013
- Allan Walsh: “All NHL GM’s received a memo from the League TODAY informing them no negotiations or verbal offers allowed on pending UFA’s until tomorrow.”
- Bruce Garrioch: David Clarkson visited Ottawa today.
- Ian Mendes: Senators GM Bryan Murray said that Eugene Melnyk has given him the “green light” to go after a top-end forward. Ideal world they could get Daniel Alfredsson and David Clarkson.
- Darren Dreger: The Flyers, Islanders and Oilers are believed to be after Ray Emery. Blackhawks are still in talks with him.
- Tim Panaccio: The Flyers are out of the Tim Thomas running, still in on Emery and Evgeni Nabokov. Johan Hedberg is a wild card.
- Frank Seravalli: The Flyers are making a final push of Ray Emery.
- Tim Panaccio: The Flyers say they are still in on a possible Jaroslav Halak trade.
- Josh Rimer: Rimer is hearing the Maple Leafs are in talks with Mike Ribeiro, Stephen Weiss and David Clarkson. Wouldn’t be able to sign all three, but two could be a possibility. Tyler Bozak is still a possibility.
