- Craig Custance via twitter: Bruins Tuukka Rask is making $3.5 million, and will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season. Re-signing him won’t be cheap. Rask is tied for first in wins with 13, third with a 1.97 GAA and top five in save percentage at .925. Rask’s agent, Bill Zito, wouldn’t comment on specifics of the negotiations. Rask is one year away from unrestricted free agency, and if Pekka Rinne and Henrik Lundqvistare comparables, he could be looking for a deal in the $5 to $7 million range.
“I’m sure they’re talking about something there in the near future,” Rask said of contract talks. “We’ll see. I can’t really say anything about it. I hope we’ll see.”
The Bruins have 16 players and a cap number of $56.6 million already for next season. Those numbers include Marc Savard at $4 million. Nathan Horton, Andrew Ference and backup goalie Anton Khudobin are unrestricted free agents.

- TSN: The NHLPA will decide today if they will accept Bettman’s proposed player-owner meeting. The PA held a conference call late afternoon to go over what went on in the mediation talks, and what they will do going forward.
- Chris Johnston via twitter: The NHL didn’t specify how many players and owners might attend Bettman’s proposed meeting if it’s accepted.
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: The players are “intrigued” by Bettman’s proposal but are a bit leery of conditions. “Will be telling if inability to set ground rules of proposed meeting were to kill it. Tough to get new CBA done if meeting rules a challenge”
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: If a deal doesn’t get done in the next week or so, and it doesn’t look like anything would get done, McKenzie would propose the following:
“2 players, 2 agents, 2 owners, 2 GMs in room to settle remaining issues. 1 lawyer/side to document agreement that would be done in day or 2. Bettman and Fehr could only recommend acceptance or rejection to their respective constituents and then owners and players would vote on it. We’d either have deal in place and be playing games before Christmas or we’d know that everyone gave it their best shot and season is done.”
- Henrik Lundqvist via twitter: “If the plan is to have meetings between players and owners to solve this mess, maybe it’s time to allow teams that actually are carrying the league finacially to get involved. So far I have not seen any invitations to the meeting room.”
- Darren Dreger via twitter: Dreger has talked to some players who want all 30 owners to sit in the meeting.
- Larry Brooks via twitter: Every player has been invited or encouraged by the NHLPA to attend the negotiations meeting, but the NHL has only allowed 4 owners to attend.
- Bill Hoppe via twitter: Sabres Jordan Leopold on attending the proposed player-owner meetings: ”I don’t want any part of it.”
- Aaron Portzline via twitter: “NHL has to be careful picking owners for face-to-face with players. How many might just shake hands w the players and say “Where do I sign?” Problem letting a wide array of owners take part is the wide array of needs from team to team. One team’s outrage is another team’s deal. To be clear, I’m all in favor of a new approach w fewer barriers between involved parties. Just think this is trickier than many realize.”
- Canadiens P.K. Subban gives his thoughts on the proposed player-owner meeting.
- Allan Walsh via twitter: “NHL Ave Salary since 04-05 lockout. 05-06 (-16.64%), 06-07 (9.20%), 07-08 (15.20%), 08-09 (-0.29%), 09-10 (6.69%), 10-11 (9.32%), 11-12 (9.33%) = 32.81% NHL Ave Salary Increase. NHL revenues up 50%+”

- Larry Brooks via twitter: Can expect a mass exodus of players overseas within the next 7 to 10 days if constructive talks don’t take place next week.

- Matias Strozyk via twitter: Tomas Kopecky will join Dukla Trencin of the Slovakian Extraliga.
- Dave Stubbs via twitter: Max Pacioretty is leaving the Swiss League’s Ambri Piotta. Pacioretty missed 2 games due to a flu, and was a healthy scratch on the weekend due to the import quota rules. Official reason for Pacioretty’s return seems to be health reasons, though Stubbs thinks there could be other issues, like the import quotas. Matias Strozyk via twitter: The official story is that he’s leaving because of an elbow injury. Speculation of the reason varies from disagreement with the coach to the culture shock.
- Elliotte Friedman via twitter: Buffalo Sabres prospect Corey Tropp suffered a season ending knee injury.
- Ted Kulfan via twitter: Red Wings Corey Emmerton broke his finger in Finland. It will require surgery and he could be out up to 2 months.
Talks to resume Wed./Thurs … Frolunda get money for Lundqvist … Voracek injured … Bryzgalov thinks some will remain in KHL
- Pierre LeBrun via twitter: Looking like talks will resume on Wednesday or Thursday, but it’s not finalized yet. John Shannon via twitter: There was little or no contact between the NHL or NHLPA yesterday. NHL and NHLPA will talk today to finalize plans and agenda.
- Jeff Klein of the NY Times: Frolunda has been able to get about the $30,000 per month needed to sign hometown hero Henrik Lundqvist, according to Goteborge-Posten and other news outlets. Lundqvist’s agent said last night that there is “nothing to report.”
- Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly: Jakub Voracek badly sprained his knee in a KHL game Saturday night. Voracek was telling HC Lev Praha teammates that it is worse that his agent is saying. The team is saying he’ll miss 4 weeks and will undergo more test this week.
- Matias Strozyk via twitter: Jonathan Ericsson signed to play with Vita Hasten in Sweden.
- Matias Strozyk via twitter: Radek Martinek left Ceske Budejovice for family reasons and is returning to New York.
- TSN: Ilya Bryzgalov thinks that some Russian players will not return to the NHL.
“(NHL) owners…they create this situation and they put themselves into this situation,” explained Bryzgalov. “Like I said before, they have to take responsibility for their own actions.
“If you watch what they did consistently, like saying: ‘It’s going to be (a) lockout. We’re not happy with the system, we can’t operate with the system that we had’…and (yet) they continued to sign the players during the negotiation process, signing the players to long-term contracts for big amounts.”
“I think some of the players may not return to the NHL because you have everything here and major companies are going to pay the top players here big money. And, especially for Russians players who can play at home in front of their own fans and families and [earn] even bigger money than they have in the National Hockey League,” said Bryzgalov.
Daly, Fehr quotes after 2 weeks cancelled … NHLPA proposal coming? Players lose $180,000 … Lundqvist, Backes and Toews quotes
- TSN: After cancelling 2 weeks of games: Bill Daly
“The game deserves better, the fans deserve better and the people who derive income from their connection to the NHL deserve better,” said deputy commissioner Bill Daly. “We remain committed to doing everything in our power to forge an agreement that is fair to the players, fair to the teams and good for our fans.”
“If the owners truly cared about the game and the fans, they would lift the lockout and allow the season to begin on time while negotiations continue,” said Fehr. “A lockout should be the last resort in bargaining, not the strategy of first resort. For nearly 20 years, the owners have elected to lock-out the players in an effort to secure massive concessions.”
- Dejan Kovacevic via Sulia: Bill Daly when asked how the league can cancel games while barely negotiating,
“The Union is not prepared to talk about the most meaningful issues, relating to a fair division of League-wide revenues and other system-related matters. Until we can make progress in those areas, the ongoing discussions in other areas aren’t as time sensitive. That doesn’t mean we aren’t continuing to work on those other areas, or that we won’t schedule further meetings to move things along, it just means that until the PA is prepared to talk about the nature of the overall deal, and perhaps show some indication (any indication) that it is willing to compromise its position, we will remain a long way from getting a deal done.”
- Pierre LeBrun via twitter: The NHL said not to assume that they will cancel games in 2 week chunks, will depend on temperature of bargaining talks.
- Spector’s Hockey via twitter: Darren Dreger said on TSN that he thinks the NHLPA is working on a proposal, but the question would be when they present it. Dreger suggests presenting a proposal too early could be a “sign of weakness.”
- Howard Berger via twitter: The NHL will only cancel 2 more 14 day segments before they will cancel the season. Won’t be any postponements after the U.S. Thanksgiving.
- Kevin Paul Dupont via twitter: NHL and NHLPA in a 100 day countdown. No new CBA by mid-January and another season gets cancelled.
- Gino Reda via twitter: The cancelled games will cost the players an average of about $180,000 each.
- Allan Walsh via twitter: Cancelled games will cost the owners $114 million, on top of the $100 million from the preseason.
- Henrik Lundqvist via twitter: “Feels like I’m going to practice without a purpose, and I hate it! Don and Gary, let’s figure this one out! #NHLHockey #theplayers #thefans”
- Josh Rimer via twitter: David Backes on cancelling 2 weeks of games, “It is unfortunate that it has come to canceling regular season games, we were hoping that 900 million in concessions would be enough to a league with record growth and revenues. Since it isn’t, it might be a while.”
- Josh Rimer via twitter: Jonathan Toews on cancelling 2 weeks of games, “it’s another disappointing but expected move from the league. This seems to be our commissioners bread and butter. It’s almost like he is excited to take away hockey from the fans and the players just because he can. Personally, I still haven’t heard a valid argument from the league for what they are doing, just that they want more and last time it wasn’t enough. If they would be as determined to solve these issues as they are quick to point the finger at us (the players), this would be settled by now. But they aren’t and now we know well miss at least two Weeks because of it.”
