- Ansar Khan: Red Wings Jimmy Howard left practice early yesterday. He’s had a sore hamstring, but he’s still played well through it.
- Eric Stephens: Ducks GM Bob Murray said that center Nick Bonino had a torn hamstring, which he suffered playing soccer before a practice in March. Murray added that Ryan Getzlaf’s ankle was never the same after he injured it on March 3rd against the Stars. Francois Beauchemin was playing with a torn ACL for a while and will have surgery soon to repair it. Defenseman Toni Lydman confirmed that he suffered a concussion from the Justin Abdelkader hit. Goalie Viktor Fasth was playing at 80% at the end of the year with a strained lower abdominal muscle.

Garrioch Rumor Roundup … No talks with Iginla … Perry to test open market? Scouting CBJ-DET and CAL-LA
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Two league executives have said that Panthers GM Dale Tallon is willing to listen to all offers as they are basically out of it. Exceptions are Jonathan Huberdeau, Erik Gudbranson, Jakob Markstrom and Drew Shore. Sources say the top name being dangled is Kris Versteeg. They had planned on shopping Stephen Weiss. The Bruins, Penguins and Canucks are looking for scoring and may have been interested.Word is that Flyers coach Peter Laviolette is safe while GM Paul Holmgren looks to make a trade.Coyotes GM Don Maloney would like to re-sign Mike Smith, but he won’t talk about a contract. He would likely sign a deal if he was assured they would be staying in Phoenix.Sources say the Avalanche aren’t thrilled about having to pay Ryan O’Reilly $6.5 million next season. He can’t be dealt until Feb. 28th, 2014.
New Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen is working the phones trying to clean up Scott Howson’s mess. He’s been offering up center Brandon Dubinsky and his $4.2 million cap hit.
Flames GM Jay Feaster isn’t shopping Jarome Iginla, but he’s held talks with more than one team to see what he could get. If they do move Iginla, they won’t hit a home-run in a deal.
Among the teams looking for a defenseman: Blues, Rangers and Hurricanes. Blues looking for a top-four.
The Senators are looking for more toughness.
If the Ducks are to move Corey Perry, GM Bob Murray will want a “king’s ransom.” Asking price will be a 1st round pick, two top prospects, and a roster player. Doubtful he’ll be moved. If he does, he’ll go the East with the Senators, Bruins, Penguins and Maple Leafs to show interest. None are expected to meet the asking price.
It’s unlikely that Leafs GM Dave Nonis will mess with the team that much. UFAs Tyler Bozak and Clarke MacArthur are unlikely to go anywhere. Nonis has indicated that teams have called. Now he would have interest in moving Mike Komisarek and John-Michael Liles.
Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford would listen to offers on left winger Jussi Jokinen.
- Eric Francis of the Calgary Flames: According to Jarome Iginla’s agent Don Meehan, they are “not currently in negotiations” with the Flames. Meehan is waiting for instructions from Iginla on how to proceed.
- Will DePaoli of Inside Pittsburgh Sports: With Ryan Getzlaf re-signed by the Ducks, the focus now turns to Corey Perry. He has an interest in re-signing, but many in the league think his representatives want him to test the open market. The Ducks realize this and will consider trading him if their contract talks don’t progress well. Dreger said that the Kings, Flyers and Bruins are among the teams that would be interested. A league source said he expects the Penguins to inquire.
- David Pagnotta via twitter: Scouting the Blue Jackets – Red Wings game: Canadiens, Rangers, 2 from the Blackhawks, Kings and Blues.

Subban update coming tonight … Flyers haven’t talked to Habs … Selanne will see how body reacts … Not going back to Junior
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: P.K. Subban’s agent, Don Meehan, said he’ll have an update this evening.
- Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail: Subban will meet with his agent this today in Toronto, and then Meehan will touch base with the Canadiens. Subban was to be spending the weekend thinking about the next step. The Canadiens are off to a good start, and their power-play is clicking, but they don’t have anyone that can eat the minutes that Subban does. There hasn’t been any sense that the Canadiens have any desire to trade him.
- Sam Carchidi via twitter: The Flyers have held no internal talks about P.K. Subban, and none with the Canadiens despite the reports.
- The Fourth Period: Teemu Selanne told the LA Times he will see how his body recovers from the short season before deciding if he’ll retire or play another year.
“I expect to know at some point how my body’s holding up, and how much I enjoy this,” Selanne said. “So far, it’s been quite easy. I know I can play. I usually wait a month after the season to decide, and every time I feel like, ‘It’s time now.’ So that’s good. This is a hobby still.”
“I just hope I can stay healthy, enjoy it and play well,” Selanne said. “I know what I can do for this team, so hopefully I’m going to do it.
“I play because I enjoy this game.”
- John Lu via twitter: Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin and coach Michel Therrien told Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk this morning that they will be staying with the team. Bob McKenzie via twitter: Galchenyuk and Jonathan Huberdeau where told they are staying. Bruins Dougie Hamilton could be next to be told that he’s staying.
- Chris Johnston via twitter: Tim Connolly is getting interest, but he might need to clear waivers first. Some teams would prefer a trade with the Leafs, who would need to retain some salary.David Pagnotta via twitter: Connolly’s agent said there are “no plans yet” regarding a buyout. Added, ”We will be discussing options after waiver results.”
- B.D. Gallof via twitter: Source on idea of the Islanders bringing in Connolly, ”Not going to happen. I would be shocked”
- Sarah McLellan via twitter: Coyotes will get a $2 million salary cap hit for Matthew Lombardi, and will pay $1.1 of his salary. (Lombardi’s salary this year is $3.5 million)
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: McKenzie thinks there are likely 3 under-aged rookies playing all season in the NHL: Dougie Hamilton in Boston, Nail Yakupov in Edmonton and Jonathan Huberdeau in Florida. Under-agers likely to get a ‘trial’ are: Rakell (ANA), Grigorenko (ANA), Dumba (MIN), Galchenyuk (MTL), Laughton (PHI), Scheifele (WPG). Final decisions on Murphy (CAR), Matteau (NJD), and Rielly (TOR) will be made this morning.
- James Mirtle via twitter: Mirtle is hearing the Maple Leafs will be cutting Morgan Rielly and Matt Frattin today. Should know by their 11:30 am practice. If that is what is happening, it would mean they are starting the season with 8 defenseman: Phaneuf, Gunnarsson, Liles, Franson, Kostka, Holzer, Fraser, Komisarek.
- David Pagnotta via twitter: Clarifying that the Panthers and Kulikov have agreed on a 2 year deal, but has not officially been signed until he passes a physical.

Kovalachuk isn’t ruling out staying in Russia … Alfie unsure on future … McKenzie’s Calder thoughts … Rask’s groin injury
- Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter: Ilya Kovalchuk has joined Alex Ovechkin in saying “I do not rule out that if the salaries are cut I will stay in the #KHL.”
- Aaron Portzline via twitter: The Blue Jackets hiring of John Davidson could happen as soon as today.
- Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: Senators Daniel Alfredsson is unsure about his playing future.
“I think the longer it’s been going here I don’t feel as eager to get back,” the 39-year-old said in a discussion about the lockout. “I’d say I’m more relaxed. If it happens, it happens.
“I can’t say I’ve at all been frustrated or really looking forward to coming to the rink. I love it when I’m on the ice and I have fun, but at the same time, at this stage, I know I have to look forward as well. Depending what happens, we’ll see how quick that comes.”
“I think that goes for everybody,” he said. “For the fans, too. I think in the beginning everybody follows exactly what goes on (with the labour dispute). You read every little thing, and you read into it, and as time goes on and nothing happens, you kind of tune out of it, you get tired of it. We’re no different.”
On if he’d come back next year if an entire season is lost,
“I could, physically,” he said. “I don’t think it would be an issue for me. It’s all in motivation, I think. Do I feel I could go a whole year and do it again? I think I could. But do I want to? That’s more what I think will determine it.”
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: Talking Calder trophy if there is a season. McKenzie is leaning towards Cory Conacher as the rookie of the year (though he’s not even guaranteed a roster spot with the Lightning) or Jonathan Huberdeau. Other candidates would be Granlund MIN, Tarasenko STL, Bartschi CGY, Kreider NYR, Schultz and Yakupov, EDM, Foligno (BUF), Schwartz STL, Vatanen ANA, Brodin MIN, Saad CHI as well as all the U/As: Galchenyuk, Scheifele, Strome, Jenner etc.
- Tim Panaccio via twitter: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said that Andrej Meszaros’s rehab on his right Achilles tendon is on schedule and a December return might be possible.
- Kevin Paul Dupont via twitter: The Bruins and Tuukka Rask’s agent are aware of Rask’s alleged groin injury, but don’t have much other info at the moment.
- Joe Haggerty via twitter: David Krejci: “I regret my recent lockout comments which were made flippantly in locker room after last gm. Didn’t intent for them to be recorded. I have been treated very well by the Boston Bruins and wish to confirm that my comments shouldn’t reflect on the club in any way”
- Dawn Walton and Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail: Senators defenseman Chris Phillips has filed a $7.5 million lawsuit against his former agent and parents for bad investments and unauthorized real estate deals. Dany Heatley is also suing them. Phillips is accusing them of “breaches of contract, trust and fiduciary duty as well as conversion, fraud, fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation, conspiracy, oppression and unjust enrichment.”
- George Richards of the Miami Herald: The Panthers sent Jonathan Huberdeau to St. John’s on the QMJHL. Jacob Markstrom, Alex Petrovic, Colby Robak and Drew Shore were sent to San Antonio of the AHL.
- Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe: The Bruins have put Garnet Exelby, Christian Hanson, Jamie Tardif, and Trent Whitfield on waivers. Once they clear, they can report to Providence of the AHL.
- Renaud Lavoie via twitter: The Panthers have put Dov Grumet-Morris, Michael Caruso, Nolan Yonkman, Andre Deveaux, JF Jacques, Greg Rallo, Casey Wellman, James Wright on waivers.
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: Penguins Nick Petersen cleared the unconditional ($125) waivers and his contract is mutually terminated.
- Harvey Fialkov of the Sun-Sentinel: Roberto Luongo has made it clear that he’d like to be traded to the Florida Panthers. He started his career there from 2001-06, and still has a home there.
“It’s tough to not know what your future is going to be with your family and everything. There were a couple of stressful moments, but we’re still here and everything’s good.
“[The Panthers] makes sense for myself, for my career and my family,” added Luongo, who still has 10 years at $5.33 million per remaining on his deal. “That being said. There’s obvious other options as well. This is a preferred location for obvious reasons but I’m not shutting the door on other possibilities if it comes up.”
Luongo has also been linked to the Blackhawks and Maple Leafs. Current Panthers goalies are Scott Clemmensen, who just signed a 2 year contract extension this summer for $2.4 million, and Jose Theodore, who has 1 year left at $1.5 million. Panthers GM Dale Tallon hasn’t ruled out Luongo, but only at the right not price, and not Quinton Howden, Jonathan Huberdeau or Alexander Petrovic.
“It’s useless energy wasted on speculating what might happen with him,” Clemmensen said of Luongo. “We pretty much have the same lineup that we had last year, as far as goalies are concerned. I feel like we did a great job last year, the three of us who played at this level anyway. I feel confident and very excited to be in the same kind of scenario.”
Rumors and notes: “a hell of an offer” for Nash, Semin, Weber, Kostitsyn, Doan, Parise, Suter, Streit, Luongo, Bernier, Kane and Boyle
- Ansar Khan of MLive: According to someone with knowledge of the situation, the Red Wings made “a hell of an offer” to the Blue Jackets for Rick Nash. Which got them no counteroffer, no negotiating, nothing. It’s unclear what the Red Wings offered. Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson likely doesn’t want to see Nash in a Red Wings jersey 6 times a year. Howson told TSN that he’s looking for at least 2 NHL ready forwards. Though it’s unlikely that Detroit would move them both, the Blue Jackets may be interested in guys like Johan Franzen and Valtteri Filppula.
- Michael Traikos via twitter: You can’t really fault the Blue Jackets for not dealing with the Red Wings, but one less team hampers ability to get value for Nash.
- Matias Strozyk via twitter: CSKA GM Sergei Fedorov said they are negotiating with Alexander Semin, but “there are more questions than answers”.
- Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: Predators GM David Poile said he spoke with Shea Weber’s agents on Monday.
“It’s ongoing and hopefully we’ll talk later in the week,” Poile said. “I would say (we discussed) everything about the Predators, where we are and where we’re going and what part Shea has with that.”
“Right now my priority is to see Shea signed and hopefully finalize a longer term deal with Shea,” Poile said. “To me it all revolves around that decision.”
The Predators and Sergei Kostitsyn have a arbitration hearing set for August 2nd.
“We’re talking to his agent (Don Meehan) on one hand. On the other hand, we’re preparing with our counsel for arbitration, and that’s August 2,” Poile said. “We still have time on that, but we’re preparing for that.”
If Shane Doan decides to move on the Coyotes, that Predators would be interested:
“First of all, I’m hoping the Phoenix situation gets resolved and he can stay there and finish his career in Phoenix,” Poile said. “If he decides it’s not a fit for him and would like to pursue other opportunities, the Predators would be very interested.”
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: The Penguins are the front-runners for Doan, not far from the Sharks and Canadiens. The history, tradition and market are key.
- Elliotte Friedman of CBC: Zach Parise got several $100 million offers immediately. Buffalo reportedly let both Parise and Ryan Suter know that they would give them $100 million. Suter wasn’t interested in going to the Eastern Conference. By July 2nd other teams figured it was down to the Wild and Red Wings. It’s believed that Parise considered at least 9 teams to varying degrees: Devils, Wild, Penguins, Flyers, Bruins, Sabres, Red Wings, Blackhawks and Kings. One source said Parise eliminated Eastern teams as he was unwilling to compete directly with the Devils. Parise later said it came down to the Devils and Wild. About 24 hours before the Wild signed the pair, they signed Jake Dowell, a close friend of Suter with the same agent. With some big name UFA/RFA’s for next year, some may look to get a deal done before the new CBA in case there is a term limit. The Oilers look a long look at Mark Streit, Islanders GM Garth Snow said in a text, “I have no intention to trade Streit.” The Panthers feel the Canucks are wanting too much for Roberto Luongo, and the Canucks feel the Panthers are squeezing too hard. The Panthers are unwilling to move Jacob Markstrom, Erik Gudbranson or Jonathan Huberdeau. The Canucks may have interest in Nick Bjugstad or Quinton Howden, and it’s unlikely the Panthers like that idea. The Canucks don’t want to take on a bad salary. If a deal with the Panthers doesn’t happen, they’ll have to ask him for more teams. Have to believe that Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke did inquire about Jonathan Bernier, wouldn’t be doing his job if he didn’t. There are doubts about Burke’s seriousness in Bernier. The Predators may have to ultimately ask Shea Weber: “Look, we just went through this with Ryan Suter. We need an honest answer.” The Coyotes are looking for offensive help and really like David Krejci. Friedman isn’t sure if the Bruins are shopping him. This could be where all Keith Yandle rumors came from. Teams have been told that Patrick Kane isn’t going anywhere. The 36 year old Dan Boyle’s name has popped up, his no-trade is now limited, so teams are calling.
NHL terminating CBA … Canucks and Panthers notes … Shero wants big 3 … Top 5 FA targets for Sens … Semin’s agent audio
- Jason Kay via twitter: The NHL has officially let the NHLPA know they are terminating the CBA on Sept. 15th. Talks are expected to start after the draft. Liz Mullen via twitter: A source said that one side must let the other side know if they want to make changes to a CBA 120 days before it expires.
- Ben Kuzma via twitter: With a possible lockout looming, the fall prospects tournament for Canucks, Oilers, Flames, Jets in B.C. has been cancelled.
- Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province: Panthers defenseman Jason Garrison will be a UFA on July 1st, and will be looking for a nice raise from the $675,000 he made this past season. He’d like to re-sign with the Panthers, and they are saying the right things, but their priorities list may lie with Kris Versteeg and bolstering their offense. Garrison is from BC, and may hope the Canucks are interested:
“It’s always nice to be wanted and if that’s the case and you have a quality that they like, obviously it’s my hometown team and I grew up watching them play,” said Garrison, who played with Canucks winger Mason Raymond at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. “My friends and family are big Canuck fans and would love to see me play at home but you’ve got to be the right fit for a team. You want to be able to contribute.”
Cap space for the Canucks would depend on a Roberto Luongo deal, and the re-signing of Cory Schneider. They need a top 6 forward, a 3rd line center and a top 4 defenseman. Sami Salo and Aaron Rome are UFAs, Marc-Andre Gragnani is a RFA.
- Harvey Fialkov of the Sun-Sentinel: The door is still open for Scott Clemmensen to return to the Panthers next season with Jose Theodore, and that GM Dale Tallon would like to Jacob Markstrom to spend a full year in the AHL. Fialkov doesn’t sense they will bring back Marco Sturm, John Madden or Wojtek Wolski. Mikael Samuelsson and Krys Barch are possibilities. Jonathan Huberdeau and Quinton Howden will be given every opportunity to make the Panthers next season. Alex Petrovic and Colby Robak will likely start next year in the AHL. Keaton Ellerby and possibly Shawn Matthias could be packaged to move up in the draft.
- Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Penguins GM Ray Shero isn’t about to give up on the 3-center model that helped them win the Cup in 2009. Jordan Staal and Sidney Crosby have 1 year left on their deals, Evgeni Malkin has 2.
“I’d like to do that, if possible,” he said. “We’re looking at hopefully getting extensions with [Crosby and Staal].”
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Garrioch lists the top 5 free agent targets for the Senators. 1. Zach Parise 2. Chris Kelly 3. Bryan Allen 4. David Jones 5. Jiri Hudler.
- 106.7 The Fan Audio: Alexander Semin’s agents talks about the Capitals and Semin.
- Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter: Responding to Todd Cordell’s question, Chesnokov thinks Semin will end up “somewhere west.”
- Ansar Khan of MLive: Zach Parise will be the Red Wings top goal scoring priority, but if they can’t land him, Khan wonders if they should look at Alexander Semin? Would his motivation increase playing with Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg?
- David Pollak via twitter: New reports are saying that Todd McLellan is coming back as the Sharks coach, but likely with new assistants.
The Panthers are in a unusual position. They have not made the playoffs since 2000. Dale Tallon and assistant GM Mike Santos have done a great job rebuilding this team. As a result about this they now rank 20th in attendance which should shut down any chance at relocation.
The Panthers are obviously buyers at the deadline. They have been propelled by the great additions of Kris Versteeg, Tomas Fleischmann, Brian Campbell, and Jose Theodore. As there roster sits right now they have a tremendous amount of depth but not much frontline talent. They are also ravaged by injuries but have the #1 farm system in the game with the likes of Nick Bjustad, Jonathan Huberdeau, Quinton Howden, Jacob Markstrom, and Luke Shaw.
Markstrom looking good … Coaching change coming for CBJ? CAL, CBJ, TB, and MON need to make a move … Green to be a FA at end of season
- Harvey Fialkov of the Sun-Sentinel: Panthers rookie goalie Jacob Markstrom looked good last night. Jose Theodore has a ‘core injury’ but looked fine at practice.
“Sometimes you have to go on performance and Marky played so well in the third period [Saturday] and earned his place in net,’’ Dineen said. “Theo’s our starter and a great player. He’s going to get back in there soon. Jacob not only earned that start but earned that victory.’’
Fialkov can’t see Markstrom not remaining with the team all season, even after Scott Clemmensen comes back from injury. George Richards via twitter: “Not right now he isn’t” was Richards response to whether Markstrom will be sent the minors when Clemmensen is healthy.
- Elliotte Friedman of CBC Sports: There are rumors that the Blue Jackets ownership are considering forcing a coaching change, possibly bringing back Ken Hitchcock. They are paying him $1.3 million already. Friedman sees this as a lose-lose for everyone. With Florida trading David Booth for contracts that expire after this season, it opens up top 6 positions for next year, possibly for Jonathan Huberdeau, Nick Bjugstad or Quinton Howden. Maple Leafs say they weren’t sniffing around Booth.
- Craig Custance of ESPN: Teams that shouldn’t wait long before making a move are the Flames, Blue Jackets, Lightning and Canadiens.Flames: “I am both making and receiving calls as it relates to possible deals, although there is nothing imminent, and for the most part the calls are more about finding out what fellow GMs are thinking,” Feaster wrote in an email. “We learned last year that we simply cannot dig a big hole for ourselves and then try to make a mad dash for the final playoff spot.”
The Blue Jackets are winless and need to make a trade or coaching change before the season is completely lost.
The Canadiens and Lightning need a defenseman. Andrei Markov is out until at least November. Mattias Ohlund is out longer than expected. Eric Brewer is playing with an injury. “According to an NHL source, both the Canadiens and Lightning have had conversations with the Toronto Maple Leafs about a deal involving one of Toronto’s defensemen.”
- The Fourth Period: Capitals defenseman Mike Green will be a free agent after this season, and carries a $5.25 million salary cap hit. Green could be looking for a $6 million plus on a long term deal, especially if he puts together another good season. It’s uncertain when both sides will begin contract discussions.
- Dennis Bernstein via twitter: Berstein answers a question about what the return for Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier would be with “More than anyone willing to give now.”
- Elliotte Friedman via twitter: Teams scouting the Panthers-Canadiens game last night: Blues and Maple Leafs (2 of them), Avalanche, Red Wings, Canucks, Flames, Oilers, Kings, Penguins, Wild, Capitals, Senators and Coyotes.
- Andy Strickland via twitter: Brian Elliott is expected to start in net for the Blues tomorrow night against the Canucks.
