NHL Rumors I: Chiarelli Comments on Marchand Rumors, Boyle and the Flyers

  • Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe: Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli on the trade rumors of a Brad Marchand for Patrick Marleau deal.

    “I have had no discussions for Marchand and I have no plans to trade him,” the Bruins general manager relayed in a text message. “I don’t make it a practice to respond to reports in the social media, but occasionally it is necessary.”

    Marleau has a no-movement clause and a cap hit of $6.66 million for the next three years. Marchand has a no-trade clause  and a cap hit of $4.5 million for the next three years.

  • Arthur Staple: Dan Boyle’s agent said that Boyle hasn’t made a decision on whether to start contract talks with the Islanders: “We have no real timetable.” The Islanders might have a timetable to sign Boyle. They could look to move his rights in the next seven to 10 days if a decision isn’t made before then.
  • Tim Panaccio: Flyers GM Ron Hextall doesn’t know what he’s going to do about Vincent Lecavalier after talking with his agent.
  • Sam Carchidi: Flyers GM Ron Hextall said a decision on whether to re-sign Ray Emery is “on hold.”
  • Sam Carchidi: Flyers GM Ron Hextall said their top priority is to re-sign Brayden Schenn.
