Posts Tagged Cory Schneider
- Arthur Staple: Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald suffered a broken hand and is likely done for the playoffs.
- Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette: Carey Price suffered a lower-body injury, possibly a hamstring or groin at the end of regulation and was replaced by Peter Budajfor overtime.
“When your starting goalie goes down … it’s tough to lose him and it’s tough on the guy who has to come in,” Gorges said. “He’s been sitting there for two-and-a-half hours and we expect him to go in there and be stellar. It’s a tough position to be in, and it’s unfortunate it unfolded that way.
“Plays get thrown to the front of the net,” he added of the scramble that produced the winning goal, “and a lot of times it’s a 50-50 puck. We have to be stronger.”
- Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Kovacevic is one of many who is calling for Tomas Vokoun to be the Penguins starter for Game 5. Marc-Andre Fleuryhas allowed 14 goals on 102 shots, and 40 goals in his last 10 playoff games. Coach Dan Bylsma:
“Certainly, Tomas Vokoun is a guy that can step in and play and has had success and won hockey games against this team, was successful this year. We’re going to come out for Game 5 with a refocus.”
“One of the reasons we wanted Tomas Vokoun was to play hockey games and win hockey games for us. Marc-Andre Fleury is our starting goaltender and started this series and won us some hockey games, made a lot of saves for us … but we’re not going to talk about our starting goaltender for Game 5.”
- Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: The Predators are currently $18 million under next year’s salary cap. Cooper lists four players who could be good options for the Predators: Stephen Weiss, Nathan Horton, Sergei Gonchar and Derek Roy.
- Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province: Gallagher mentions some possible moves that the Canucks could look at, with some being a little radical. Trade Alex Edler to a team like the Flyers. The Flyers have some young forwards that they might consider moving for someone like Edler. Could they look at moving Ryan Kesler or Dan Hamhuis? Though both have a no-trade clause. Alex Burrows’ no-trade clause doesn’t kick in until July 1st. They could trade Roberto Luongo for whatever you can get for him, which may not be a lot. Cory Schneider would bring more return. The Sedin’s are heading into the last year of their deals.
Injury Notes: Eller, Crosby, DeKeyser, Franzen, Schneider, Emery, Bolland, Kostka, Kessel and Franson
- Ton Marinaro: The Canadiens confirmed that Lars Eller suffered a concussion, lost consciousness, and has facial and dental fractures. He will remain in the hospital for observation.
- Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune: Penguins Sidney Crosby took regular shifts with Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis yesterday at practice. He also worked with the top power play unit.
- Ansar Khan: Red Wings Danny DeKeyser broke his hand last night and will be out for the remainder of the playoffs.
- Ansar Khan: Red Wings Johan Franzen said he had to pass a concussion test, which he did, before overtime started last night. He was ready to return when Gustav Nyquist scored.
- Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun: Cancucks Cory Schneider didn’t take part in the teams full team practice yesterday, meaning that Roberto Luongo will get the start in Game 2. It appears that Schneider may have suffered a setback. His injury is still not known. Pap wonders if it’s a groin injury. Before yesterday he had skated in four consecutive days and practiced the previous three.
“You can interpret what you want at this time,” Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault stated cryptically. “Cory is day-to-day.”
- Brian Hunter of the Chicago Tribune: Blackhawks goalie Ray Emery briefly worked out yesterday, but he won’t be available for Game 2. Dave Bollanddidn’t skate yesterday won’t be available either.
“We’re going to rule them out,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said after practice. “Bollie didn’t skate but he’s getting real close to getting on the ice. (Emery) felt good, too. It was good progress.”
- Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs defenseman Mike Kostka will miss the remainder of the series with a broken finger. Jake Gardiner or Ryan O’Bryne will replace Kostka. Phil Kessel had a maintenance day for a suspected left wrist injury. Defenseman Cody Franson was limping around with a bruised foot.

- Katie Strang: Rangers Marc Staal said that his peripheral vision is fine, but his eyesight is still a little blurry. He said he still needs to work on depth perception, reading plays, etc.
- Bruce Garrioch: Senators Erik Karlsson didn’t skate yesterday and likely won’t for the rest of the week.
- Joe Haggerty of CSNNE: Bruins Patrice Bergeron, out with a “moderate concussion” has started working out again.

From twitter unless noted otherwise
- Craig Custance of ESPN: There are not many teams that are desperate for a goalie. James Reimer is proving he may be able to lead the Maple Leafs. At the moment there are more goalies available than teams that need goalies, but that could change in the summer. Custance estimates that there could be as many as eight teams looking for a goalie, maybe three or four more depending playoff performances. Things have gone quiet on the Roberto Luongo front, but teams are still calling about him and Cory Schneider. The Canucks may only get full value for Luongo in the summer, with full value being a player that would immediately help them and future piece or two. His $5.3 million cap hit is looking more reasonable, especially if a team can get 5 or 6 years out of him.Some teams who could be looking for a new goalie this offseason:
Buffalo Sabres: Ryan Miller has one year left on his deal at a cap hit of $6.25 million. He can submit a list of teams he won’t accept a trade too. Some believe he wants out of Buffalo.
Phoenix Coyotes: The Coyotes and Mike Smith are quietly trying to get a contract extension done before he become a UFA. The uncertainty of the Coyotes is making it hard to do any long-term deals.
Detroit Red Wings: Jimmy Howard will be a UFA after this season, and there is “no update” on contact talks.
Minnesota Wild: GM Chuck Fletcher said in email that contract talks with Niklas Backstrom will wait until the offseason. How much is Backstrom worth? They have Josh Harding for the next two years at $1.9 million a season, as well as 22-year old Darcy Kuemper.
Philadelphia Flyers: Ilya Bryzgalov hasn’t been the Flyers biggest problem. The idea of a compliance buyout will be considered. He’s signed through 2019-20. ”That’s something a normal organization wouldn’t do,” one NHL source said. “But they’re not a normal organization.”
- Elliott Pap: Canucks Roberto Luongo on trade speculation: ”I’m obviously not exactly sure what’s going to happen.”
- Eklund: Source said that Roberto Luongo will the top player available at the deadline.
- Dennis Bernstein: The Kings are inquiring about: Robyn Regehr, Drew Stafford, Ryane Clowe and Alex Tanguay.
- The Fourth Period: Trade talks are picking up for the Sabres and Robyn Regehr. The Kings, Red Wings and Senators are looking to upgrade their blue line. The Sabres are said to be looking for a draft pick and a top prospect for Regehr. The Sabres are looking for a prospect who is close to NHL ready. The Kings and Sabres have been watching each other in the past few weeks. Regehr fits the bill of a stay-at-home, rugged defenseman that the Kings have been looking for. Reports are that they may have discussed including Drew Stafford in a deal.
- Renaud Lavoie: Mike Ribeiro rejected a three year offer from the Capitals, but he hopes to stay.
- Mark Lazerus: Mike Riberio and Derek Roy are the top center options, but the price might be too high for the Blackhawks.
- Renaud Lavoie: There is lots of interest in Max Talbot, but the Flyers are saying he “not available.”
- Kevin Kurz: Scouting the Sharks-Ducks game: No less than 13 teams at the game including the Flyers, Bruins, Islanders, Canadiens and Maple Leafs.
- Michael Smith via twitter: Hurricanes lines: Tlusty-E.Staal-Semin, Skinner-J. Staal-LaRose, Ruutu-Nash-Dwyer, Westgarth-Brent-Hall.
- Elliott Pap: Canucks defenseman Alex Edler is in for Cam Barker.
- Dave Isaac: Ilya Bryzgalov will start in net for the Flyers.
- Arthur Staple: Evgeni Nabokov will start in net for the Islanders.
- James Mirtle: Looking like Ben Scrivens will start in net for the Maple Leafs.

NHL Rumors I: Bruins, Iginla, Clowe, Subban, Jagr, Roy, Luongo and Schneider, Leopold, Glencross and Nystrom
From twitter unless noted otherwise
- Wes Gilbertson: Two reports out of Boston are that the Flames could target goalie Malcolm Subban in any Jarome Iginla talks.
- James Murphy of ESPN: 3 sources have said that Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli had been interested in Brenden Morrow, along with Ryane Clowe and Jarome Iginla. So far he’s found the prices too high. All three sources added the Bruins don’t have the high-end defensive prospect the Flames want to go along with a 1st round pick and a roster player. The Flames would want Malcolm Subban. The Bruins continue to work on a contract extension with Tuukka Rask. One source wondered if Subban, Rich Peverley and 1st round pick would get it done for the Flames.
- Joe Haggerty: Haggerty is hearing that the Bruins could be in on other top-six forwards aside from Iginla. Maybe Jaromir Jagr or Martin St. Louis? The Flames asking price for Iginla may be too high.
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: The Penguins still have the cap room to add Jarome Iginla, and hope to do so. There may be a sense of urgency with the Bruins after the Penguins addition of Brenden Morrow and Douglas Murray.The Stars and Jaromir Jagr have begun contract extension talks.
The Stars have talked to the Senators about a Derek Roy. Roy is from Ottawa. The Senators may not want to pay a big price for him though.
There is a lot of interest in Ryane Clowe, but the asking price is too high according to one team executive.
Teams have been asking the Canucks about Roberto Luongo the last little bit, but they’ve also been asking about Cory Schneider. It’s unlikely they’d move Schneider even though they could get more for him. Sounding like any trade will have to wait until the offseason.
One team executive said almost everyone in Buffalo is available. Defenseman Jordan Leopold’s name is out there a lot.
Mark Streit’s agent is expected to start contract extension talks with the Islanders this week.
- Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald: Flames Curtis Glencross’ name keeps coming up in trade talks. He’d be a nice fit in Boston. The Flames had two scouts at the Bruins-Leafs game last night. If the Bruins don’t trade for Iginla, other pending UFAs are: Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy, Eric Nystrom and Ryane Clowe. Bruins coach Claude Julien doesn’t think the trade talk is affecting his players.
“I don’t think anybody in there is worried about that,” said Julien. “We’re trying to improve our team and that’s the thing that happens every year. I haven’t heard a peep in that dressing room about guys worried about getting moved. I think if we can make our team better, so be it, and we look forward to that. But right now, what we’ve got is what we’ve got, and we’re still good enough to win hockey games. That’s what we’re focused on.”
