Posts Tagged James Reimer
- 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.
Garrioch’s roundup … Hejduk could retire … No calls for Komisarek … Flyers fans shouldn’t expect Weber
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Four GMs that could be on the hotseat: Greg Sherman (COL), George McPhee (WAS), Jay Feaster (CAL) and Dale Tallon (FLA).Marian Gaborikturned down a $79 million from the Wild in 2009, thinking that he could get $100 million. He ended up signing a 5 year, $35 million deal the with Rangers. The Blue Jackets were the only team interested in his $7.5 million contract for next season.
Sources say the Blue Jackets offered one of their three first round picks to the Stars for Jaromir Jagr. The Red Wings were also interested in Jagr at the deadline.
A decision on the Phoenix Coyotes is imminent. ”In Canada, the fans have been very forgiving,” said a league executive. “There are 20 owners in the United States who are sick of writing cheques for $1 million to prop this thing up.” Garrioch thinks that moving them to Quebec City and keeping the Blue Jackets in the West makes the most sense until they have expansion.
The Sharks thought about trading defenseman Dan Boyle but they went on a 5 game winning streak. The Flyers, Rangers and Red Wings were interested. They could look to move him in the summer.
Ryane Clowe gave up on his sign-and-trade thoughts when he found out that nobody would give him an 8 year deal in the $5.5 to $6 million range.
The Devils and Sabres had interest in Jets Alex Burmistrov.
It wouldn’t surprise some people if the Wild bought out Dany Heatley and his $7.5 million salary in the summer.
Expect the Flyers to be looking for a new coach at the end of their season.
- Adrian Dater: Avalanche winger Milan Hejduk remains out with a shoulder injury and he could retire after the season. “Hejduk, 37, has hinted this season will be it for him. He could change his mind, and here’s hoping he might. But I doubt it. Age is the great equalizer, and Hejduk has suffered his share of injuries in recent years. Along with the shoulder, he has had serious knee injuries and a troublesome back.”
- Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis called both James Reimer and Ben Scrivens five minutes after the trade deadline to let them know that neither was offered in a trade. The Canucks did ask for Scrivens in their offer, but the Leafs wouldn’t do unless they included a “significant portion” of Roberto Luongo’s salary. The Flames had agreed to take a 2nd round pick from the Maple Leafs for Miikka Kiprusoff. The Leafs didn’t get one call on Mike Komisarek.
- Dave Isaac of the Courier Post: Isaac notes that Flyers fans shouldn’t expect to see Shea Weber in a Flyers uniform anytime soon. After all of Weber’s signing bonuses, the Predators will pay him $27 million before next season and $41 million before the 2014-15 season starts, 37% of his contract. Weber also has a no-trade clause.
“That’s a financial unlikelihood for Nashville looking to move him, especially to Philadelphia,” said Stu Grimson, a former NHL tough guy who now is a radio commentator for the Preds.
The Flyers will have to look elsewhere. Coyotes Keith Yandle? Could they outbid the Islanders for Mark Streit if he doesn’t sign before free agency starts? Do they look at Senators Sergei Gonchar or Ron Hainsey?
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- Hockey Central: The Leafs were negotiating late for Roberto Luongo. In the end they decided it didn’t make sense.
- Darren Dreger: There were multiple options in the Luongo to Leafs trade talk. The Canucks were looking for Ben Scrivens and multiple picks between 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm yesterday. “Canucks called at 2pm…made a trade offer, Tor declined. Van called at 2:30 with 2nd offer, Tor declined…3rd offer at 2:45pm…decline.”
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: The Canucks lowered their demands in the last hour, but it wasn’t enough for the Leafs. The Canucks were looking to get Ben Scrivens and two 2nd round picks in their final offer for Luongo. There may not have been a team that “was even remotely interested in Luongo.” If the Canucks would have retained some of the salary, the Maple Leafs may have been more likely to make a deal for him. There will now be more competition on the goalie market this summer with Ryan Miller, Jonathan Bernier and maybe Mike Smith. Nonis and Gillis don’t get along.
- TSN Radio: Dreger said that Luongo’s term doesn’t make sense to Leafs management or it’s board. Dreger added that the Leafs didn’t counter offer.
- Ben Kuzma: Canucks GM Mike Gillis on Roberto Luongo: ”We’ve been close a number of times. We were listening a lot and confident in getting something done.”
- James Mirtle: GM Nonis said that if the Leafs brought in Miikka Kiprusoff, it was only to help James Reimer develop as a goalie.
- Randy Sportak: Kiprusoff on why he didn’t want to accept trade to Maple Leafs: “I don’t think it’s the right thing to do for the Leafs if my heart is not 100% there.”
- Mike Zeisberger: Nonis on pending UFA Tyler Bozak: ”If both sides want to be here, it’s my experience that things will work out.”
- Mark Masters: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis said they inquired about Ryan O’Byrne about 7-10 days ago, but thought the price tag was too high then. Will likely be paired with John-Michael Liles or Michael Kostka.
- Mark Masters: Nonis added that they were close to trading for a depth center but ’not really until late in the day.’
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- David Pagnotta: Sharks have granted a few teams, including the Wild and Flyers, permission to speak with Ryane Clowe’s agent.
- The Fourth Period: The Wild are looking for a 2nd line winger. One of GM Fletcher’s targets is Clowe.
“If I go somewhere, I’m not going to sign unless I see potential, but it’s definitely something I’d be open to,” Clowe told the San Jose Mercury News. “On the other hand, if it had to come down somewhere as a rental it would probably be to a team that’s a top team looking at making a run. We’ll see.”
If the Wild don’t land Clowe, they could turn to Sabres Jason Pominville or Drew Stafford, Flames Lee Stempniak, Curtis Glencross or Alex Tanguay.
- Darren Dreger: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis spoke with Kiprusoff’s agent yesterday, and it’s likely that he’ll speak directly with Kiprusoff today.
- Mark Masters: Leafs James Reimer on trade talk: ‘Reimer on deadline buzz: ‘Honestly, it is a distraction … it’s a huge distraction. To not be playing [until Thurs] is almost a benefit’
- Mark Lazerus: A Blackhawks trade target Arthur Staple: Islanders and Mark Streit are unable to agree on a contract extension but it’s unlikely that he’s traded.
- George Richards: The Panthers put pending UFA Mike Santorelli on waivers.
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- Bruce Garrioch: A lot of teams will see where they stand after last night to determine what they’ll be doing at the deadline.
- Bob McKenzie of TSN: “Under the right circumstances” the Maple Leafs could add a veteran goalie. Nonis may be leaning more towards Miikka Kiprusoff than Roberto Luongo. The Leafs are trying to find out if Kiprusoff would consider leaving Calgary. The Canucks asking price hasn’t dropped that much. Not including Nazem Kadri, but still looking for a center, Tyler Bozak, a prospect and a pick.
- Damien Cox: Cox guesses there is a 60% chance that the Maple Leafs will stick with James Reimer and Ben Scrivens, 15% Miikka Kiprusoff, 15% Robert Luongo and 10% something else.
- Jimmy Murphy: Murphy’s sleeper deal: Mike Smith to the Leafs. Smith is on the IR, but if he’s OK, he may not cost much more than either Luongo or Kiprusoff.
- The Fourth Period: The Leafs and Canucks had talks this week, but it may take another team to get a trade done according to a source. Nikolai Kulemin, John-Michael Liles, Korbinian Holzer, Tyler Biggs, Stuart Percy and Jesse Blacker have been attached to a possible trade. The Leafs are open to moving Bozak, but would need to find a replacement for him right away. Derek Roy has been tied to the Leafs. Mike Ribeiro may become available, but the price would be higher. The Flames are taking calls on Alex Tanguay. The Oilers aren’t shopping Shawn Horcoff, but they are taking calls. Liles would have to be apart of the deal due to salaries, $5.5 million to $3.875 million. The Leafs have asked about Sam Gagner, but it would take a package that includes Morgan Reilly.
- The Fourth Period: The Kings have inquired about Flames Alex Tanguay and Cory Sarich. The Kings want add a stay-at-home defenseman. The cost to get Sarich shouldn’t be that high. The Kings are also looking at Sabres Robyn Regehr. Winger Drew Stafford has also been part of talks.
NHL Rumors II: Nonis talks deadline, Maple Leafs, Luongo, Kiprusoff, Khabibulin, Smith, Reimer and Scrivens
- Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis,
“Last year I had a list of teams I kept in touch with. I did about half. Brian (Burke) did about half. That’s how we operated.
“Now, I pretty much talk to everybody. That’s the plan this year. We bring our hockey staff together. We want to hear everybody’s views on things. Then we get ready for what comes.
“You go into a trade deadline with certain expectations. But you never really know what the next phone call you’re going to get is. I don’t believe in untouchables. There’s always a price for any player. The question is: Is anyone willing to pay it?
“Right now, I can tell you I don’t have anything even interesting on the go. Nothing at all. But I believe there will be something for us to think about by Wednesday.
“Right now, we’re not close on anything.”
Nonis might be interested in 1. A veteran goalie – maybe not Luongo, someone closer a Nikolai Khabibulin. 2. A depth center – can play on various lines. 3. A top-4 defesneman – someone who could take some pressure off of Dion Phaneuf.
Nonis might be able to land a veteran goalie and a depth center without giving up too much. Many teams are looking for a top-four defenseman, there aren’t many available, and if they are, the price is high, see: Dan Boyle.
There are no untouchables on the Leafs roster.
“You always listen no matter who they ask about,” he said. “There’s a price tag for everybody. You just don’t get it very often.”
- Damien Cox of the Toronto Star: Talks between the Maple Leafs and Canucks have quietly resumed this week after weeks of silence. GM Mike Gillis’ asking price may have come down and may no longer be demanding Nazem Kadri or Jake Gardiner. Tyler Bozak would still be a fit. There are now other goalie options for Nonis. James Reimer and Ben Scrivens have played well for the most part. They could take a run at Miikka Kiprusoff. It likely won’t take a first rounder to get him. Coyotes Mike Smith has a concussion and it’s not clear if the Coyotes are interested in moving him. Kiprusoff may be the Leafs top choice. Remaining with Reimer and Scrivens would allow the Leafs to not create a hole up the middle by trading Bozak to the Canucks.

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.
