Written by Austin Lutz
With only 23 games remaining in their season, the Columbus Blue Jackets sit at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, a place that’s been their home for the majority of the season. That being said, the Jackets are the biggest sellers this trade deadline, and the only thing Scott Howson has to look forward to this June is the possibility of adding top prospect Nail Yakupov.
Columbus seems set for another few years of rebuild and that’s not something that 27-year-old captain Rick Nash wants to wait for. He has not openly admitted to wanting a trade, but when asked about being traded, he said “Right now I’m a Blue Jacket.” The words “right now” tell it all and whether Nash is traded before the deadline or at the draft, he seems to be on his way out of Columbus
Many different teams have been linked to Nash, who brings a yearly cap hit of $7.8 million until 2018, but most often it has been the first place Rangers, the Maple Leafs, the Kings, and as always the Philadelphia Flyers.
Brassard getting interest … Lucic escapes suspension … Tyutin the translator … Not a lot of interest in Nabokov … NHL won’t own Coyotes much longer
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators might be mildly interested in Blue Jackets center Derick Brassard, who could fit in as their 2nd line center. Cost could be a concern for the Senators, as he carries a $3.2 million cap hit through 2013-14. The Islanders are also believed to be interested. Another option could be Kyle Turris, who needs to sign a deal by December 1st. Flames center Matt Stajan and his $3.5 million for 3 years is available. Though teams are looking for defenseman, Filip Kuba and Brian Lee are not getting much interest.
- Dan Rose of NHL.com: Milan Lucic escaped punishment from Brendan Shanahan.
“I had the hearing because I did make an initial assessment of the play as I do with all plays, but I did have some questions for Milan and I wanted to hear directly from him,” Shanahan told NHL.com. “They were regarding his intent; at what point did he know there was going to be a collision; and whether or not he felt he had the time to avoid the collision. I was satisfied with his answers.”
“The minor penalty called on the ice was the correct call,” Shanahan said. “And, while it’s unfortunate that Miller was hurt I saw nothing egregious about this hit that would elevate it to supplemental discipline.”
- Elliotte Freidman of CBC: Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin, who was rumored to be traded for Evgeni Nabokov, is part of the teams solution. Speculation started as he was asked to stay behind after their game with Kris Russell, Russell was traded to the Blues, so someone assumed Tyutin was being traded as well. Tyutin was asked to hang around in case they needed someone to talk to Nikita Nikitin, who doesn’t speak much English. Islanders GM Garth Snow told Eric Francis that there isn’t much interest in Evgeni Nabokov. One GM: “There are a lot of us who don’t like our teams.” Kyle Turris’ agent met with Coyotes GM Don Maloney on November 2nd when the Coyotes were in Colorado, neither side is saying anything.
- Damien Cox of the Toronto Star: Senior league sources are saying that this will be the last year the NHL owns the Phoenix Coyotes. There are 2 groups that have been approved to buy an NHL team, but neither has consummated a sale. There is an estimated 50/50 chance the team will remain in Glendale. Quebec City is at the top of the list for possible relocation. A 2nd southern Ontario team is an option.
- Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly: Flyers chairman Ed Snider spoke about realignment. The Flyers and Penguins will remain in the same division. Eastern Conference clubs want traditional rivalries to remain. A realignment suggestion of having the Penguins and Flyers in different conferences didn’t get enough votes.
- Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Capitals defenseman Mike Green has a strained groin according to sources. He won’t travel with the team to Nashville.
- Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times: Brent Seabrook, who was injured over the weekend, traveled with the team to Vancouver. If Seabrook can’t go, Sean O’Donnell or Sami Lepisto would step in.
- Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun: Talk that the Flames are swamped with interest in Rene Bourque is manufactured according to a source within the club. Flames GM Jay Feaster wouldn’t talk specifically about Bourque, but did say it’s getting harder to find trading partners.
“In the post-lockout world, it just isn’t about whether you like a player or not,” Feaster said.
“It’s also about the term (years) of the contract, the current cash requirement and the AAV (average annual value or cap hit), and that’s before you ever start talking about what you want or need in return for the player.”
- Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch: The Blue Jackets are finally getting healthy. Only Radek Martinek, Mark Dekanich and Kristian Huselius remain out. Huselius could be back in two weeks.
- BD Galiof via twitter: Galiof thinks the Islanders should make an addition by subtraction deal to send a message and to create room for more kids.
- Tom Gulitti via twitter: Martin Brodeur will start for the Devils on Wednesday.
GMs to talk hybrid icing and trapezoid … Staal to visit concussion specialist … Green questionable for tonight … Babchuk fractures hand
- Craig Custance of ESPN: The GMs will meet next Tuesday and one thing they’ll talk about is hybrid icing. “To me, it’s a no-brainer,” Fletcher said. “I’ll be shocked if it’s not in the rulebook starting next season. It’s one of those things, I don’t know if there’s any strong opposition to it. It’s just something we all need to wrap our heads around.” There is small group of GMs would like to get rid of the trapezoid so that goalies could help protect defensemen.
Bob McKenzie via twitter: McKenzie has been told that there is no truth Evgeni Nabokov rumors last night, that Fedor Tyutin is not being traded.
- Larry Brooks via twitter: Rangers defenseman Marc Staal will be examined by a concussion specialist next week. Back on October 16th when Staal visited Dr. Cantu, he was ordered to shut it down for 1 month. For the last 3 weeks Staal has been resting at his apartment.
- Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Capitals defenseman Mike Green is questionable for tonight. “I’m getting better each day. Finally, I think I’m getting close,” Green said. “We’ll see what the docs say [yesterday] and [today] and we’ll go from there.”
- John Bartlett of TSN: The Canadiens were without Michael Cammalleri and Andrei Kostitsyn last night. Cammalleri has a lower body injury. Scott Gomez has been cleared for contact.
- Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald: Flames defenseman Anton Babchuk is out indefinitely after fracturing his hand on Tuesday. They have recalled T.J. Brodie.
- Aaron Portzline via twitter: “Strange times: #CBJ third-leading scorer, w both GWGs, gets scratched (Johnansen); guy w no goals in 20 games moved to No. 1 line (Vermette)”
- Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: Kari Lehtonen will start tonight against the Penguins. Andrew Raycroft is expected to start on Saturday. Lines at yesterday’s practice: Eriksson-Benn-Ryder, Barch-Ribeiro-Burish, Nystrom-Fiddler-Dvorak, Dowell-Wandell-Petersen.
Weber has hearing today … Flames working phones … Sens have Dmen available … Dater’s trade proposals … Gomez injured … Flyers, Devils, Habs lines
- Nick Kypreos via twitter: Predators defenseman Shea Weber has a hearing today at 2:00 pm for a boarding call last night.
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Flames GM Jay Feaster:
“I’m not going to sit around and wait”, Feaster told ESPN.com Thursday. “There is urgency here. There’s very much a sense of urgency. We kept this group together for a reason this summer. We articulated what that was and articulated to the players. They talked about the need to get off to a good start. We saw what happened last season when you dig yourself a hole. We played like our pants were on fire in the second half last year and it [still] wasn’t enough. We’re all paying lip service to what we needed to do. Now we need to do it.”
“Obviously I’m making phone calls and people are making phone calls to me,’’ said Feaster. “It’s not something I’m looking to do, I want to win with this group. That’s what I want to do.
“We like the team we have. But we talked repeatedly about it all summer and in camp, the need to get off to a good start.’’
Senators GM Bryan Murray:
“Yes, and I hate to say this, but if there’s a need on another team for a veteran defenseman, we’ll probably one have available that we’d be willing to talk about.’’
Sergei Gonchar still has another year left at $5.5 million and a no-movement clause.
- Adrian Dater of SI.com: Dater runs through some players who could be traded, and who might be interested. 1. Rene Bourque (CAL) – The Avalanche could offer one of their top 3 defensive prospects and/or throw in winger TJ Galiardi. 2. Jay Bouwmeester (CAL) – Dater wonders about a Bouwmeester for Tuomo Ruutu deal. 3. Lots of Blue Jackets – Rich Nash is due between $7.5 and $8.2 million until 2017-18. The last 6 years of Fedor Tyutin’s deal are for $4.5 million. Marc Mathot has a 4 year deal at $3 million. James Wisniewski has a 6 year deal. Dater notes that other than Nash, the others may not get much interest. 4. Derek Morris (PHO) on a 3 year, $2.75 million per deal – Dater proposes a Morris for Alex Tanguay deal. Tanguay signed a 5 year deal at $3.5 million. Dater says that Olli Jokinen makes sense too. Adrian Dater via twitter: Some of the trade scenario talk was meant to have some humor too.
- Eric Engels via twitter: As for Canadiens GM Pierre Gauthier giving Andrei Markov a 3 year deal, Gauthier said mid-season last year that they weren’t concerned about Markov’s rehab. That his injuries didn’t factor into their desire to want him to return and his want to re-sign with the Canadiens.
- Josh Yole via twitter: Evgeni Malkin is looking better as practice goes on today. Will be interesting to see if he’ll play tomorrow.
- Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette: Canadiens forward Scott Gomez left last night’s game with an upper-body injury. He was initially hurt after taking a hit from Engelland, tried for one more shift after, but then left.
- Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen injured his hand blocking a shot and it’s not known if he’ll play tomorrow.
- Sam Carchidi via twitter: Daniel Briere is centering Jakob Voracek and Scott Hartnell. Giroux is centering Jagr and Schenn. Read is centering Simmonds and JVR. Couturier is centering Talbot and Shelley/Nodl.

- Rich Chere via twitter: Devils lines: Parise-Elias-Zubrus; Kovalchuk-Josefson-Palmieri; Tedenby-Sykora-Ckarkson; Boulton-Mills-Pelley-Janssen. Defensive pairings: Greene-Larsson; Tallinder-Fayne; Salvador-Volchenkov
R.I.P. Belak … Savard’s career could be over … List of players who’ve retired due to head injuries … Fedoruk’s demons
No one will get credit for breaking the death of Wade Belak. I’m still in shock over this one. I did not know Belak, but he always seemed be smiling and cracking jokes in on/off-air interviews. I woke up this morning hoping that there was a big mix up and it wasn’t him. My condolences go out to his family and friends.
- Matthew Barnaby via twitter: I’m glad Matthew Barnaby, who has dealt with concussions and the fighting role, wrote the below and I hope the NHLPA reads it.
“Prepared for life after. Very very tough. Nhlpa should do better job of preparing to enter league- and departing it! FACT.”
“This isn’t on the league. We all know we r a piece of meat and cast aside when we r done but nhlpa should prepare guys more!!”
- Fluto Shinzawa of hte Boston Globe: Bruins forward Marc Savard is still experiencing from post-concussion syndrome.
“Marc Savard won’t play this year,” said GM Peter Chiarelli. “Nothing has changed in our monitoring. He’ll be examined and he’ll be declared unfit to play.”
There is also the possibility that his playing career is over.
“Based on what I see, what I hear, what I read, and what I’m told, it’s very unlikely Marc will play again,” Chiarelli said. “Now, knowing the uncertainty of this injury, there’s always a chance [he could play]. But based on what I’m told, it’s very unlikely he’ll play. As an employer, I support him and hope he gets back to living a healthy life.”
- James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail: Mirtle put together a list of players who have been forced to retire due to head injuries over the past 10-15 years:
Pat LaFontaine, Jim Johnson, Eric Lindros, Scott Stevens, Paul Kariya, Mike Richter, Keith Primeau, Geoff Courtnall, Adam Deadmarsh, Jeff Beukeboom, Petr Svoboda, Nick Kypreos, Brett Lindros, Jason Botterill, Steven Rice, Jay More, Dean Chynoweth, Dennis Vaske, Cam Stewart, Steve Rucchin, Steve Moore, Jesse Wallin, Steve Dubinsky, Richard Scott, Stu Grimson, Gino Odjick, Rob DiMaio, David Tanabe, Kim Johnsson, Matthew Barnaby, Kurt Sauer and Dave Scatchard.
- Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province: Todd Fedoruk is trying to make the Canucks this training camp, admitted that he’s battled drug and alcohol addictions in the past but has been clean for almost 18 months.

(I wanted to post some quotes but there were too many worthy one’s, instead I’ll direct you to read the entire piece.)
- Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star: Maple Leafs RFA defenseman Luke Schenn isn’t worried that he doesn’t have a contract yet. “It’s going to happen sooner or later,” Schenn said of his contract. “There’s not much to say about it.”
- Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider: Kings GM Dean Lombardi had talks with Drew Doughty’s side yesterday but no deal seems imminent. Lombardi added,
“It’s safe to say we’ve talked the last couple days, and we’ll just continue to try to work through it. … I still feel confident that this is going to get done (before the start of training camp).”
- Aaron Portzline via twitter: Fedor Tyutin’s salary breakdown: 2012-13 $4 million, 2013-14 $4.5 million, 2014-15 $4.75 million, 2015-16 $5 million, 2016-17 $4.75 million and in 2017-18 $4 million. There is also a no-trade clause for the first 3 years and a modified no-trade for the final 3 years.
