Neuvirth comments on Holtby and Semin … Yakupov looking at KHL? Samsonov looking for a tryout … Some CBJ could be sent to AHL
- Stephen Whyno via twitter: Capitals goalie Michal Neuvirth tells iSport.cz that Braden Holtby is his “weakest competition yet.” Brian Stubits of CBS Sports: (Russian Machine Never Breaks translation) Neuvirth did clarify a little better,
He sure is a great goalie. But I can’t compare him to Voky or Varlamov, that’s what I meant. In comparison to those two, he played nothing in the NHL and that’s why I take him as the weakest of them three. I’m definitely not saying that he is bad, not at all. I actually like the way he plays. But he is the worst of them three, that’s all.
Neuvirth’s thoughts on Alexander Semin,
I see the leaving of Semin as a huge minus for the team, but then again I think it may do some good. He didn’t have the best work ethic. Maybe now when Ovi will be without him, he will put more into hockey. Maybe that’s what the management was going for. … I think it’s nothing that isn’t well known. If Semin wanted to, he could have been the best player in the world, but he doesn’t want to every day. And that’s wrong.
- Szymon Szemberg via twitter: Nail Yakupov’s agent, Igor Larionov, said that if there is a lockout, Yakupov will head to the KHL instead of returning to Sarnia of the OHL.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Larionov said his client Sergei Samsonov will get a tryout with the Sharks if there isn’t a lockout. Joe Haggerty via twitter: Samsonov’s agent Neil Abbott said there is no deal with the Sharks as of yet, and that they are speaking with several teams.
- Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch: If there is a lockout, the Blue Jackets could send forwards Cam Atkinson and Ryan Johansen, and defensemen Tim Erixon and John Moore to the AHL.
- David Pagnotta via twitter: The NHL and NHLPA will meet today at 1 PM, with Gary Bettman and Don Fehr in attendance.
Flames lease close to expiring … 6 Predators and Hurricanes questions … Lilja out … Klefbom not ready … Horton cleared
- Tamara Gignac of the Calgary Herald: The Flames lease at the Scotiabank Saddledome expires in 2014 and the Flames would like a modern building to enable them to compete financially with other NHL teams. They are being tight-lipped about when or where they could break new ground. The Flames can extend their lease until a new arena is built.
“We certainly won’t be ready to move by 2014,” King said.
“If we dropped the flag and started building today, I don’t think we’d meet the deadline. We have an arrangement to be here as long or frankly, as short, as required.”
- Brian Compton of NHL.com: 6 questions facing the Predators heading into this season. 1. Can the Predators overcome the loss of Ryan Suter? 2. Can anyone on this roster score 30 goals? 3. Can Pekka Rinne duplicate his success? 4. Is this the year Mattias Ekholm makes an impact? 5. Is Colin Wilson ready to take the next step? 6. Can the Predators reach 100 points again?
- Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly: The Flyers confirmed that defenseman Andreas Lilja had a hip injury and will miss the start of the season. Lilja told a Swedish newspaper that he might be out until December, but GM Paul Holmgren doesn’t agree.
“He did have surgery [and] should be back late October or early November,” Holmgren texted CSNPhilly.com on Sunday afternoon.
- Mike Morreale of NHL.com: 6 questions facing the Carolina Hurricanes. 1. How will coach Kirk Muller use Jordan Staal? 2. Where does Alexander Semin fit in? – they could have Eric Staal center Semin and Chad LaRose, Jordan Staal centering Jeff Skinner and Jussi Jokinen. Tuomo Ruutu centering Jiri Tlusty and Patrick Dwyer. 3. Do the acquisitions of Staal and Semin make Carolina a Cup contender? 4. How will Muller fare in his first full season behind the bench? 5. Do the Hurricanes have enough depth on defense? 6. Who will serve as Cam Ward’s backup?
- Josh Yohe via twitter: If the Penguins have any interest in the Ducks Bobby Ryan, now might be the time to make a move as the Flyers may have to concentrate on defensemen.
- Dan Tencer via twitter: Oilers prospect Oscar Klefbom to NHL.com: “Edmonton wants me to come over and try but I don’t want to come over and feel like I’m not ready.”
- Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe: Nothing new on Tim Thomas. Another team may look at him to reach the salary floor depending on the new CBA. Nathan Horton has been cleared to resume full contact once training camp opens.
5 FA not named Doan … Teams looking for Dmen … Devils short $20 million … Canucks waiting for Panthers … Caps needs
- Adam Gretz of CBS Sports: Gretz lists 5 free agents not named Shane Doan that may be worth signing: Brian Rolston, Carlo Colaiacovo, Jason Arnott, Dominic Moore and Petr Sykora.
- Lyle Richardson in the Hockey News: The Predators, Flyers and Red Wings are among the teams looking for help on the blueline. Tim Panaccio suggested the Flyers contact the Sharks about Dan Boyle or Douglas Murray, or the Canadiens about P.K. Subban. Boyle has only a modified no-trade clause now. Murray will be a UFA following the season. Subban’s contract talks are ongoing, but there is no indication they would consider moving him. The Red Wings have about $13 million in cap space. George Sipple suggested free agents Michal Rozsival, Brett Clark and Carlo Colaiacovo.
- Josh Koshman of the NY Post: The Post has learned that New Jersey Devils owner Jeff Vanderbeek is still about $20 million short for his overdue loans, and there is only a week to go. Creditors are “poised to pounce” on August 14th, and he could lose control of the team.
“He had worked out a deal to raise a certain amount and has not been able to do that,” a source said.
Vanderbeek has been negotiating with lenders and the NHL to remain in control even if he can’t raise the money. Last September Vanderbeek missed an $80 million repayment. He then promised lenders he’d have $40 million by August 14th.
- Ryan Lambert of Yahoo! Sports: There is no doubt the Canucks would like to move Roberto Luongo,
But the longer this summer rolls on, the stranger the scenario seems to be. Back in June, there were several teams mentioned in connection with Luongo’s services, but that number has slowly been whittled away to just one: Florida. And yet there seems to be less movement now than there was even into July. We’re now past 100 days of this saga.
Canucks GM Mike Gillis can sit back and wait for the Panthers to come to him. The Canucks could finish 1st in the Western Conference with or without Luongo. The Panthers may not be in need of a goaltender, as they have Jose Theodore and Scott Clemmensen, but other teams in their division have improved. Panthers GM Dale Tallon may love what prospect Nick Bjugstad brings the organization, but does he want to improve their chances of making the playoffs again?
- Corey Masisak of NHL.com: Capitals coach Adam Oates:
“When you look at the Finals this year, you saw two teams that were basically in-your-face teams, all over the ice,” Oates said. “I really feel the game today is territory. You have to establish territory and protect it. I look at the Caps lineup and the talent level and I don’t see any reason why we can’t push the pace and be an aggressive team but at the same time not sacrificing defense. It requires commitment all over the ice.”
Mike Ribeiro was the Capitals lone marquee addition. The Capitals need to replace Alexander Semin and to a lesser extent, Mike Knuble. They need a better season from Alexander Ovechkin and a healthy season for Nicklas Backstrom and Mike Green.
- Josh Yohe via twitter: Yohe would be surprised if Shane Doan signed with the Penguins.
Enstrom sign 5 year deal … Jamison doesn’t call Doan … Pens have 4 year offer for Doan … Giroux blames Crosby
- Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press: The Jets have re-signed Tobias Enstrom to a 5 year contract extension. TSN is reporting the deal is worth $28.75 million. Enstrom would have been a free agent after next season.
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: If Shane Doan continues to visit teams after [yesterday], it’ll be clear that Greg Jamison has no financial plan to buy the Coyotes. If Doan doesn’t reach an agreement with the Coyotes [yesterday], signs point to him looking elsewhere. Agent confirms, “unless Shane (says) otherwise.” Potential owner Greg Jamison did not reach out to Doan at all yesterday. It’s basically over, agent can’t believe it. Doan’s agent is now waiting for permission to start negotiations elsewhere. Visits could resume as early as Monday.
- David Shoalts via twitter: Source says that Doan wants a 4 year deal worth $30 million. Will scare more than just the Red Wings off. There are teams that will be willing to go $7 million on a 1 year deal, maybe 2 for Doan. At 36 years old, 4 years is scary. Doan’s agent said they have never demanded 4 years and $30 million.
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators Bobby Butler cleared waivers and was bought out. The Penguins are prepared to offer Shane Doan a 4 year deal worth $24 million, if they haven’t done so already. The Senators didn’t show any interest in Alexander Semin. Once the new CBA is in place, there could be plenty of players available.
“My guess is you’re either going to see a lot of players bought out or moved,” said a league executive. “There are going to be teams that have spent to the cap who will have to scramble to get below it.
“I would anticipate we’re going see a lot of players who are on the move. Not sure we’re going to see a lot of trades before then, but the teams that are sitting at — or below — the floor are in a good situation.”
- CSN Philly: Flyers Claude Giroux had 2 surgeries on his wrists this summer, and told the Timmins Press that they are because of Sidney Crosby.y
“Those are from [Sidney] Crosby,” Giroux told the paper. “Every time we’d line up against each other for a face-off during our series, instead of going for the puck when it was dropped, he’d hack me across the wrists. I ended up playing the series against Jersey with one of them fractured and had to go for surgery on both of them after we were out of the playoffs.”
- Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is being patient to when it comes to trying to fill the hole left by Zach Parise. The Devils still hope to re-sign Petr Sykora. Jacob Josefson and Mattias Tedenby may get bigger roles. Chances are that Lou at least inquired about Semin, as well as Doan. It’s more likely that the the Devils will look to a trade to bring in a forward. They have 8 defenseman under contract for next year and could use one in a deal.
Morning notes on Bernier, Predators want a top 4 Dman, 5 Questions, Laviolette, Semin, Butler and CSKA
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: Sources tell TVA Sports that Jonathan Bernier hasn’t spoken with Kings GM Dean Lombardi since he said he wanted a trade. Bernier has the mindset that he’ll be a member of the of the Kings at training camp. The Blackhawks, Blue Jackets, Maple Leafs and a few Eastern teams are interested.
- Jim Diamond of the Examiner: Predators GM David Poile said he wants the give the his young players the opportunity to earn a roster spot.
“Going into training camp, we are not done adding pieces if we can add another piece, especially in a top four defense we are going to try and do that,” Trotz said later Wednesday on a conference call discussing the matching of Weber’s offer sheet. “There is limited value out there in terms of free agency, but there are guys we are looking at a possibility of a trade. There could be a piece there.”
- Dan Rosen of the NHL.com: 5 Questions still to be answered. 1. Where will Shane Doan sign? 2. Is Bobby Ryan going to be traded, and to which team? 3. When will the Canucks trade Roberto Luongo? 4. Will the Toronto Maple Leafs get a goalie?
5. Which team will take the gamble on Alexander Semin?
- Sarah Baicker via twitter: The Flyers have been working on an extension with coach Laviolette since the draft. Contract expires after next season.
- Chip Alexander via twitter: Alexander Semin on the appeal of playing with the Hurricanes: “Carolina has a good team. We want it to be a good playoff team.”
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators will be buying Bobby Butler out. They’ve been trying to trade him since February.
- Matias Strozyk via twitter: Putin has criticized CSKA’s spending. Noted their salaries can be crazy, more than NHL teams, and would like to create some general rules.
- Carolina Hurricanes via twitter: The Hurricanes have signed Alexander Semin to a 1 year, $7 million deal.
- Jim Rutherford via twitter: “Alex’s elite skill level & ability to score fill important needs, & we hope a fresh start will serve both him & our team well. “
- Mike Sundheim via twitter: Semin is 1 of 16 NHL players to average 30 or more goals over the past 6 seasons, 31.2 goals per year.
- EJ Hradek via twitter: This signing makes sense. The Hurricanes are very familiar with him, high skill guy, and 1 year deal is very low risk.
Bouwmeester’s stock rising … Sens offer for Nash was better … Senators and Flyers options … Leafs deal could be on horizon
- Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun: Flames defenseman Jay Bouwmeester’s stock is on the rise as he may be the top defenseman available. The Red Wings have lost Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart. The Flyers are looking for a defenseman, though Bouwmeester doesn’t really fit their mold. The Blues could use a veteran like Bouwmeester. The Oilers could be a fit as well. Bouwmeester has a no-trade clause and doesn’t appear interested in waiving it. The Flames currently have 9 defenseman on 1-way contracts, 10 if you include T.J. Brodie. The Flames may be interested in dealing away Anton Babchuk’s $2.5 million contact.
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators offer for Rick Nash was better than what the Blue Jackets got, but he didn’t want to go to Ottawa. They offered Robin Lehner, Nick Foligno, Mika Zibanejad and a draft pick. The Blue Jackets could have had Joe Pavelski from the Sharks but it doesn’t look like they wanted to trade within the Western Conference. The Senators may now be looking to go another direction. They may not want to go down the Alexei Kovalev road with Alexander Semin. It’s believed the Sens have talked to the Ducks about Bobby Ryan. The Stars may be looking to move Brenden Morrow. Daniel Alfredsson has indicated he’s planning on playing, and sources say they may be working on a 1 year extension.
- Rob Rossi via twitter: Rossi confirms that the Penguins haven’t talked to the Wild about a trade involving Pascal Dupuis and Paul Martin as part of a package for Dany Heatley.
- Howard Berger via twitter: One of Berger’s “bird-dogs” insisted that the Maple Leafs are working on bringing in goalie help, a deal could be on the horizon. Maybe Jonathan Bernier?
- Sam Carchidi via twitter: The Ducks apparently want Sean Couturier from the Flyers in a Bobby Ryan deal.
- Adam Kimelman of NHL.com: The Flyers defense still needs to be addressed, and addressing it internally may be their best option. Bruno Gervais will compete with Marc-Andre Bourdon, Erik Gustafsson and Brandon Manning for the final blueline spot. Matt Gilroy is the highest scoring UFA on the market, 20 points in 67 games last year. RFA options could be Michael Del Zotto, John Carlson, Dmitry Kulikov and P.K. Subban. The Flyers have a top 6 spot open and are looking at Shane Doan. Other UFA options could be Alexander Semin, Petr Sykora and Jason Arnott. The Ducks are listening to offers for Bobby Ryan, but they’d likely want Sean Couturier and/or Brayden Schenn, 2 players the Flyers have no interest in parting with.
Rumors and notes: “a hell of an offer” for Nash, Semin, Weber, Kostitsyn, Doan, Parise, Suter, Streit, Luongo, Bernier, Kane and Boyle
- Ansar Khan of MLive: According to someone with knowledge of the situation, the Red Wings made “a hell of an offer” to the Blue Jackets for Rick Nash. Which got them no counteroffer, no negotiating, nothing. It’s unclear what the Red Wings offered. Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson likely doesn’t want to see Nash in a Red Wings jersey 6 times a year. Howson told TSN that he’s looking for at least 2 NHL ready forwards. Though it’s unlikely that Detroit would move them both, the Blue Jackets may be interested in guys like Johan Franzen and Valtteri Filppula.
- Michael Traikos via twitter: You can’t really fault the Blue Jackets for not dealing with the Red Wings, but one less team hampers ability to get value for Nash.
- Matias Strozyk via twitter: CSKA GM Sergei Fedorov said they are negotiating with Alexander Semin, but “there are more questions than answers”.
- Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: Predators GM David Poile said he spoke with Shea Weber’s agents on Monday.
“It’s ongoing and hopefully we’ll talk later in the week,” Poile said. “I would say (we discussed) everything about the Predators, where we are and where we’re going and what part Shea has with that.”
“Right now my priority is to see Shea signed and hopefully finalize a longer term deal with Shea,” Poile said. “To me it all revolves around that decision.”
The Predators and Sergei Kostitsyn have a arbitration hearing set for August 2nd.
“We’re talking to his agent (Don Meehan) on one hand. On the other hand, we’re preparing with our counsel for arbitration, and that’s August 2,” Poile said. “We still have time on that, but we’re preparing for that.”
If Shane Doan decides to move on the Coyotes, that Predators would be interested:
“First of all, I’m hoping the Phoenix situation gets resolved and he can stay there and finish his career in Phoenix,” Poile said. “If he decides it’s not a fit for him and would like to pursue other opportunities, the Predators would be very interested.”
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: The Penguins are the front-runners for Doan, not far from the Sharks and Canadiens. The history, tradition and market are key.
- Elliotte Friedman of CBC: Zach Parise got several $100 million offers immediately. Buffalo reportedly let both Parise and Ryan Suter know that they would give them $100 million. Suter wasn’t interested in going to the Eastern Conference. By July 2nd other teams figured it was down to the Wild and Red Wings. It’s believed that Parise considered at least 9 teams to varying degrees: Devils, Wild, Penguins, Flyers, Bruins, Sabres, Red Wings, Blackhawks and Kings. One source said Parise eliminated Eastern teams as he was unwilling to compete directly with the Devils. Parise later said it came down to the Devils and Wild. About 24 hours before the Wild signed the pair, they signed Jake Dowell, a close friend of Suter with the same agent. With some big name UFA/RFA’s for next year, some may look to get a deal done before the new CBA in case there is a term limit. The Oilers look a long look at Mark Streit, Islanders GM Garth Snow said in a text, “I have no intention to trade Streit.” The Panthers feel the Canucks are wanting too much for Roberto Luongo, and the Canucks feel the Panthers are squeezing too hard. The Panthers are unwilling to move Jacob Markstrom, Erik Gudbranson or Jonathan Huberdeau. The Canucks may have interest in Nick Bjugstad or Quinton Howden, and it’s unlikely the Panthers like that idea. The Canucks don’t want to take on a bad salary. If a deal with the Panthers doesn’t happen, they’ll have to ask him for more teams. Have to believe that Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke did inquire about Jonathan Bernier, wouldn’t be doing his job if he didn’t. There are doubts about Burke’s seriousness in Bernier. The Predators may have to ultimately ask Shea Weber: “Look, we just went through this with Ryan Suter. We need an honest answer.” The Coyotes are looking for offensive help and really like David Krejci. Friedman isn’t sure if the Bruins are shopping him. This could be where all Keith Yandle rumors came from. Teams have been told that Patrick Kane isn’t going anywhere. The 36 year old Dan Boyle’s name has popped up, his no-trade is now limited, so teams are calling.
- Craig Custance of ESPN: Custance notes that Shane Doan and Alexander Semin remain unsigned for different reasons. Doan, because he waiting to see what is happening with the Coyotes situation. Doan doesn’t appear to be a in hurry and is willing to wait and see what happens before signing elsewhere. The Penguins, Kings, Wings, Canucks, Sharks, Rangers and Sabres are all interested, but there isn’t optimism that he’ll actually leave. One GM is 90% sure he’ll stay in Phoenix. One GM when asked why Semin wasn’t signed, “[He] wants too much money.” Teams may be waiting for Doan before looking at Semin.
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: Doan’s agent said they’d consider the Canadiens and Penguins, added “Talked to 16 different clubs” Doan’s agent also said they could be setting sights on a new destination within 7 to 10 days.
- Ed Tait via twitter: Tait spoke with Doan’s agent, the Jets have not made an offer for Doan.
- Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province: The Canucks have offered Doan a multi-year deal for at least 3 years. Teams aren’t in on Doan if they are only offering 1 or 2 year deals.
- Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic: The fact that Doan is still waiting for on the Coyotes, points to them still being the frontrunners. Coyotes GM Don Maloney thinks it “may be weeks” until Doan decides on a team.
“I still remain confident that we will be able to sign Shane,” Maloney said. “Nothing has changed in that respect. We still have regular communication despite everything you see and read.”
