Posts Tagged Colton Orr
- Dmitry Chesnokov: Maple Leafs RFA winger Leo Komarov: “Won’t hide it – I’ve held negotiations with Dynamo [KHL], but I’m waiting for an offer from Toronto.”
- Luke Fox of SportsNet: Maple Leafs defenseman Carl Gunnarsson made $1.35 million last season and will be a RFA.
“The ball is in their court right now, so they got to get it moving,” Gunnarsson says of the Leafs, who have seven unrestricted and seven restricted free agents to figure out this summer. “The four years I’ve had here have been great. We’ll see what they want from me next year. I haven’t thought about what I want.”
Gunnarsson will meet with agent this week and go over their plan.
- Jeff Simmons of SportsNet: The Leafs have a current projected cap room of $19,495,833 according to CapGeek.com. They have to decide if they want to re-sign UFA Tyler Bozak, and if so, how much do they want to commit to him. They need to re-sign RFAs Nazem Kadri and Cody Franson. Kadri could be a tough sign.
UFAs: Clarke MacArthur future as a Leaf is up in the air after a disappointing regular season. Colton Orr showed improvement this season. Tim Connolly is gone. Ryan Hamilton could return with the Marlies. The Leafs will likely look for an upgrade on Ryan O’Bryne. Mike Kostka could be back as an No. 7 option.
RFAs: Joe Colborne is still a project but could be an eventual Bozak fill-in. Leo Komarov is a nice bottom-six piece. Frazer McLaren is a Carlyle favorite but easily replaced. Reliable Carl Gunnarsson should be back. Mark Fraser performed well but future unclear.
Free Agent Fits: Devils right winger David Clarkson would give the Leafs some size in their top-six. If the Leafs don’t re-sign Bozak, Mike Ribeiro could be a nice fit between Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul. Defenseman Rob Scuderi would bring the Leafs blueline some toughness and experience.
- Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs Phil Kessel will have a $5.4 million salary and cap hit. He can’t sign an extension until after July 5th, and Koshan thinks the Leafs would foolish to not extend him. Kessel’s agent indicated that he wants to remain with the Leafs.
- Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star: Leafs GM Dave Nonis will have some offseason questions to consider. Do the Leafs look to extend Phil Kessel, Dion Phaneuf and James Reimer. Kessel could look for upwards of $7 million a season. Can the Leafs even ask their captain to take a pay cut from his $6.4 million salary? Reimer would be due for a big raise from his $1.8 million salary if he’s a No. 1 goalie.
The Leafs UFA list includes: Tyler Bozak, Clarke MacArthur, Colton Orr, Ryan O’Byrne and Mike Kostka. Bozak could be looking for Mikhail Grabovski-type money. MacArthur didn’t have good regular season and the Leafs are deep on the wings. Orr will likely be back. O’Bryne will likely be gone. Kostka’s play declined as the season went on, but could be brought back for depth.
The Leafs RFA list includes: Nazem Kadri, Cody Franson, Leo Komarov, Joe Colborne, Matt Frattin, Carl Gunnarsson and Mark Fraser. The Leafs could play hardball with Kadri in attempt to keep his salary low. Franson led the Leafs defenseman in scoring. The others are likely to be back. Frattin could be MacArthur’s replacement on the third line. Colborne appears to be ready for the next step.
Compliance Buyout Possibilities: Mikhail Grabovski, Mike Komisarek and John-Michael Liles. Komisarek may be no-brainer, freeing up his $4.5 million cap hit. Liles has 3 years at $3.875 million a season. Grabovski has 4 years left at $5.5 million a season. Nonis may look to trade both Liles and Grabovski.
- Howard Berger of Berger Bytes: Berger thinks the Leafs should save the money on Tyler Bozak, give Joe Colborne Bozak’s spot, and sign David Clarkson or make a trade.
“Colborne has enviable skill,” an Eastern Conference scout told me this week. “If he can bring his emotional game to a similar level – even half the time – Leafs won’t have to worry about a No. 1 center. From what I hear, they like the kid, and I think he’s worthy of a long look in the NHL. There aren’t going to be a lot of centers with decent price-points on the market in July.”
UFA center options are not that young: Patrick Elias (37), Andy MacDonald (35), Nik Antropov (35) and Mike Ribeiro (33). Stephen Weiss and Derek Roy are 30, and will want more money.
The Leafs and Devils could talk about Clarkson before July 5th about obtaining his rights to discuss a long-term deal before he hit the open market.

Rumors and Notes part 3: Blues, Predators, Red Wings, Avalanche, Maple Leafs, Stars, Senators and Nash, Schultz and Jagr
- Andy Strickland of True Hockey: The Blues will be looking to sign a defenseman. If the Predators lose Ryan Suter, sources are saying that Shea Weber won’t re-sign a long-term deal. GM David Poile couldn’t risk losing both for nothing, and would have to look at trading Weber. Jay Bouwmeester is rumored to be on the trade block, sources are saying no one has approached him about it yet. Sources saying the Red Wings will make a strong push for Ryan Suter, but not as hard for Zach Parise. Don’t be surprised if the Blues look to bring back Carlo Colaiacovo. There is some talk that Flyers defenseman Matt Carle may want to sign with the Avalanche, played college hockey in Colorado. The Blackhawks have serious interest in Justin Schultz. Contract talks between Erik Johnson and the Avs are going smoothly. The Senators are talking contract extension with Chris Neal, who has 1 year left on his deal. The same goes for Mike Fisher and the Predators.

- Jeremy Rutherford via twitter: Rutherford thinks that it’s possible that the Blues look at Filip Kuba, doubtful on Bryce Salvador.
- Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen: (from Monday) … Senators and Rick Nash:
“They haven’t told us if we’re close, or asked what we’re willing to part with as far as the parameters of the trade,” Murray said. “And we aren’t close to knowing if Rick Nash wants to come to Ottawa or not, he’s the property of Columbus. That’s all I know.”
“If you have to beg, it’s probably the wrong player that you’re talking to,” Murray said.
The Senators think they have a shot at Justin Schultz.
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: The Oilers are to meet with Justin Schultz in Toronto in the afternoon. Some believe that Schultz will end up in his home province and with the Canucks. Jason Gregor via twitter: Gregor was told the Oilers may not meet with Schultz until Thursday or Friday as they may not get Toronto until 5:00 pm. As of 10 PM last night, the Oilers haven’t been given a time to meet with Schultz.

- Brian Huddle via twitter: According to Pierre McGuire, Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke told him prior to the draft that they were taking Morgan Rielly if he was available.
Getzlaf and Ryan want to stay … Lots of ‘Canes are available … ‘Hawks looking for trades … Feaster beside himself … Burke Audio
- Eric Stephens via twitter: Both Ryan Getzlaf and Bobby Ryan have said they want to stay in Anaheim and be part of the solution. Bobby Ryan on GM Murray’s comments from Wednesday night:
“Obviously he wanted to light a fire,” Ryan said. “Absolutely. But I think the underlying message is, ‘Listen guys, if you don’t make a run, if you don’t do something here to win some games and salvage some of the season right now, then trades are going to be happen.
“At some point, we all have somebody to answer to, right? I’m sure he’s going to be pushed in a direction at some point as well. I think it’s the three of us [Getzlaf, Ryan and Perry] and whoever else has to grab hold of this right now and make a run.”
Getzlaf on Murray’s comments:
“I want to be part of it more than anything,” he said. ”In junior, I played for the same team my whole career and I kind of imagined the same things when I came here and still do. I don’t want to put Murph in a situation where he has to do something like that.”
- Luke DeCock of Raleigh News & Observer: If the Hurricanes are going to trade defenseman Bryan Allen, they’ll have to get him to waive his no-trade clause. Allen joins Tim Gelason, Tuomo Ruutu, Alexei Ponikarovsky and Jaroslav Spacek as players that will be surrounded by trade rumors until the trade deadline day on Feb. 27th.
- Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune: Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo has a knee injury that will keep him out for awhile, possibly longer than his 7 game suspension. Even before Carcillo’s injury, GM Bowman has been looking for trades possibilities.
“We’ve been looking for a while,” said Bowman, who added that a defenseman and/or center would be on his wish list. “If you were to talk to the other general manager’s — and I’ve talked to a lot of them recently — they’re looking for centermen and defensemen as well. Those are the positions that are most in demand.”
- Eric Stephens via twitter: The Ducks are hoping that Gordon and Smaby clear waivers today so they can be assigned to Syracuse.

Sunday notes involving Crosby, Maple Leafs, Whitney, Oilers, Waivers, Rangers, Gudbranson, Smaby and a Shanahan video
- AP in the Globe and Mail: Penguins forward Sidney Crosby is expected to miss the Penguins home opener next week. Crosby has been practicing with the team since Sept. 17th, but hasn’t been cleared for contact yet.
- Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: The Maple Leafs are looking to package some of their depth to acquire an established player. They have too many forwards and defenseman. They lack high-level offensive and physical players. Matthew Lombardi may be better suited for Phil Kessel’s center as he is a left handed shot, Tim Connolly and Kessel are both right handed shots.
- Bob Mitchell of the Toronto Star: Leafs forward Clarke MacArthur was suspended for the last nights pre-season game and 2 regular season games for his hit on Justin Abdelkader on Friday night. (Shanahan video at bottom of the post)
- Kevin McGran of hte Toronto Star: Leafs coach Ron Wilson knows what the Leafs opening roster will look like. GM Brian Burke said that if Jake Gardiner makes the team, he’d likely be paired with Mike Komisarek. McGran says that Komisarek is a top 6 for sure. McGran doesn’t think the Leafs should keep either Jay Rosehill or Colton Orr on the roster.
- Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe: Ray Whitney’s name keeps popping up as a possible Bruins, and it’s not the first time. The 39 year old will be a UFA at season’s end, and is coming off a 57 point season. Once Marc Savard is put on LTIR, the Bruins would have the space for him. Adam Larsson looks to have made the Devils, and could see time on the top power play unit.
- Jim Matheson via twitter: Matheson wonders if Oilers could trade one of their young forwards for a puck moving defenseman. They need one with Ryan Whitney hurt.
- Nick Kypreos via twitter: Oilers Taylor Fedun had a metal rod inserted into his broken femur. Icing will now become an NHL hot topic.
- David Satriano of the NY Post: The Rangers cut their roster to 25. Dylan McIlrath to junior, and defensemen Tim Erixon and Blake Parlett, and forwards Ryan Bourque, Carl Hagelin, John Mitchell, Kris Newbury and Dale Weise to their AHL affiliate. Sean Avery and Erik Christensen are battling for the 13th forward roster spot.
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: On waivers yesterday: Mancari, Duco, Parent, (VAN); Pouliot, Tikhonov (PHX); Mitchell, Newbury, Kris (NYR); Stapleton (WPG); St Pierre, Giroux, Holden, (CBJ).
- Harvey Fialkov via twitter: Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson realizes he may get a 9 game “audition” before they deciding if he’ll stay with the club.
- Steve Zipay via twitter: Zipay thinks that several teams could be interested in defenseman Ryan Parent. Parent was put on waivers by the Canucks.
- Eric Stephens of the OC Register: Ducks defenseman Matt Smaby will be out 2-3 months with a torn ligament in his thumb. The Ducks have 26 players left on their camp roster. They have the option of putting Toni Lydman and Kurtis Foster on IR.
- Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien was back practicing for a 45 minute session yesterday. He’s spent the past few days resting minor injuries.
