Posts Tagged Jonathan Quick
- Bruce Garrioch: With Jason Spezza returning to the Senators lineup today, would have to assume that Guillaume Latendresse will be sitting.
- Helene Elliott: Kings Jonathan Quick received a game misconduct that the end of last night’s game. He receives an automatic $200 fine and “the case shall be reported to the commissioner, who shall have full power to impose such further penalties by way of suspension or fine.” Because it was for abuse of an official, if a player receives two of them, they can be suspended. It was Quick’s first abuse of an official.
- Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider: The NHL didn’t like Sharks GM Doug Wilson’s comments regarding the Raffi Torres suspension and have fined the organization $100,000.
- Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News: It sounds like the Sabres would like to keep Tomas Vanek, but he may be looking to get out. The Sabres may be more interested in trading goalie Ryan Miller. The 33-year old Miller is set to make $6 million next year and may not be easy to move with the salary cap going down. Harrington thinks a team that is close to the winning the Cup may be interested in Miller. Could the Ducks be interested? Jonas Hiller has a year left on his deal and was only OK in their first round loss. The Blues might be interested. Brian Elliott lost four straight in the first round, and Jaroslav Halak may not be getting along with coach Ken Hitchcock. Sabres GM Darcy Regier is unlikely to move Miller to an Eastern Conference team, so that would eliminate the Capitals and perhaps the Penguins. If a non-Cup contending team is interest, maybe the Avalanche. Miller would be an improvement over Semyon Varlamov and JS Giguere.
- Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun: The Canucks are already over next year’s salary cap with 17 players under contract. Trading Roberto Luongo and buying out Keith Ballard would free up $9.5 million. They would have to be cautious free agent spenders. They probably can’t afford Ryane Clowe, Nathan Horton or David Clarkson. They may have to look at cheaper options like Guillaume Latendresse, Raffi Torres, Eric Nystrom and Bryan Bickell. There isn’t much help from within the organization coming up. Six current Canucks have no-trade clauses, and another three kick in on July 1st: Alex Burrows, Chris Higgins and Alex Edler. Edler may be used as a trade chip. Would the Flyers deal Sean Couturier for Edler? Could the Canucks get a package including Justin Abdelkader from the Red Wings or Jamie McGinn is a deal with the Avalanche.
“In order to get players to play for less than market value, you have to give them something they can rely upon,” Gillis explained. “I think if a player was unhappy here, he’d waive his no-trade. If we were unhappy with him, it would be obvious and he would waive his no-trade. But that’s not a path we’re looking to right now. I think we need to supplement our core group of players that are here as best we can, and then look at possibilities down the road.”

- Darren Dreger via twitter: The Maple Leafs are still in the market for a big 2nd or 3rd line center and an upgrade on the blueline. The Leafs are not in a rush to sign or trade Tyler Bozak as they need him for a playoff push. It’s unlikely that Bozak would be able to get 1st line money out of the Leafs, and will likely be a UFA in July.
- Rob Rossi via twitter: According to Penguins GM Ray Shero teams are only “touching base to see what the needs are.”
“As a manager, all you can do is keep touch with teams, continue to monitor your own team and see what needs may be,” Shero said.
The Penguins would like to add depth to their blueline and forwards. A defensive minded top-four blueliner and a scoring winger for their 3rd or 4th line. Adding someone that could play on the PK would be nice. They will be interested in Jarome Iginla, but he may not fill a top-six role with the Pens.
- Eric Duhatschuk of the Globe and Mail: Duhatschuk thinks it doesn’t make sense for the Kings to trade Jonathan Bernier to the Flames for Jarome Iginla, siting Jonathan Quick’s “erratic season.” Duhatschuk thinks that the Red Wings and Maple Leafs are possible destinations for Corey Perry if he wants to move closer to home. The Wings have the money to spend. The Stars are likely to move Derek Roy if they don’t get far with contract negotiations. If he is moved, he could end up in Vancouver.
- Katie Strang via twitter: Multiple sources have said that the Islanders and defenseman Mark Streit’s agent have been having contract negotiations. Talks are in the preliminary stages. Many teams will be calling the Islanders about him. It is possible that if the Islanders fall out of contention leading up to the deadline, they could look at moving him.
“For me, the focus right now is on hockey and helping the team,” Streit said. “Especially for me as captain, I don’t want to have any distractions. I just want to play, win hockey games, and play as good as possible.”

- Anthony SanFilippo via twitter: Flyers Matt Walker is still suffering from a bad back and likely won’t pass his physical. He could be looking at time on the LTIR.
- Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom’s status for the start of the season remains uncertain. On Dec. 26th he crashed awkwardly into the boards, injuring his neck. GM George McPhee said he can’t update the situation until the CBA is ratified.
“There are some things we can talk about, some things we can’t, and we can’t talk about the fitness or health of any players until training camp,” McPhee said Tuesday. “I’d be happy then.”
If Backstrom isn’t ready to start the season, the Capitals won’t have pay his contract since he was injured during the lockout.
- Helene Elliott of the LA Times: It’s all but certain the Kings will be without Anze Kopitar to start the season due to a sprained right MCL. He’ll undergo more tests when he arrives in LA. GM Dean Lombardi estimated 2 or 3 weeks, though these types of injuries can take longer to heal. Goalie Jonathan Quick had back surgery in August and is expected to be ready for the start of the season.
- Craig Custance via twitter: Kings Jonathan Quick will be heading back to LA [today] to have his back looked at by doctors in hopes of getting cleared medially.
- Craig Custance via twitter: Hurricanes Tuomo Ruutu wouldn’t be ready for the start of the season. His hip surgery will keep him out until May 1st at the earliest.
- Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area: The Sharks will be without Jason Demers for 4 to 6 weeks with a broken wrist that he suffered at the Spengler Cup. Kevin Kurz via twitter: Kurz wouldn’t be surprised if the Demers injury leads the Sharks to bringing back Jim Vandermeer on a 1 year deal.
- Harvey Fialkov via twitter: Panthers Erik Gudbranson has been cleared for contact. He suffered a serious shoulder injury back in August while wakeboarding.
- HC Banska (google translate): Dana Tyrell, Clayton Stoner and Tanner Glass are heading back to North America. If the NHL season is cancelled, they would be interested in returning. Michal Handzus is also leaving. Handzus was playing for no money and covered his own insurance costs.
- Bruce Garrioch via twitter: Jason Spezza has left Switzerland to return to North America. He is open to returning to Raperswill if the NHL season is cancelled.
- The Fourth Period: Gabriel Landeskog has been approached by a couple Norwegian teams. Matt Duchene is not considering playing in Europe unless the entire NHL season is lost.

Bernier asked for trade, says Kings refused … Hartnell wants extension … “Quiet period” according to Holland
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier said that he asked to be traded near the deadline, and the Kings refused. He expects to be traded close to home around the start of training camp.
- Lisa Dillman via twitter: Dillman doesn’t think the the Kings will be trading Bernier now or in the near future. His trade value is extremely low at the moment.
- NHL.com: Bernier to TVA Sports:
“I asked the Kings to trade me before the trade deadline, but they refused,” Bernier said. “Now that Jonathan Quick signed a long-term deal, I expect to be traded before training camp starts.”
- Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider: If the Kings get an offer they like for Bernier that would help the team in the long run, they would likely trade him. If they don’t like the offers, they won’t. Bernier said the Kings “refused” to trade at the deadline. The Kings did talk to several teams at the deadline, but didn’t like the offers they got. Yes, the re-signing of Quick increases the chances that Bernier could be traded in the short term, but it doesn’t guarantee anything.
- Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly: Flyers Scott Hartnell is entering the last year of his 6 year, $25.5 million deal.
“Scott would welcome coming back; he loves it in Philadelphia,” his agent, Matt Oates, said. “But we haven’t had any contact with the Flyers just yet.”
The Flyers usually start contract extension talks with players they are interested in re-signing a year out, and they’ll probably be doing it soon with Hartnell. A new CBA in September may change how some teams act, possibly delaying a signing.
- Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: It’s “the quiet period” according to Red Wings GM Ken Holland. There have only been 4 players since July 5th that have signed for over a $1 million. The Wings remain in contact with Shane Doan, but the odds remain that he’ll re-sign with the Coyotes. Alexander Semin is still available, but teams are wary of his high skill, low production and lax attitude.
Rumors and Notes: Parise, Crosby and Quick salaries, Kuba, Pyatt, Langkow, Coyotes, Salvador, New Jersey, Predators
- Nick Cotsonika via twitter: With Zach Parise meeting with many suitors today at his agents office, will likely need a day to decide what he wants to do, similar to what Brad Richards did last year.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: Sidney Crosby will get $12 million for the 1st 3 seasons. He’ll make close to $11 million salary cap hit for the 1st 9 years of the deal.
- Andy Strickland via twitter: Jonathan Quick’s contract totals: $7 million a year for the 1st 7 years, $3 million a year for the next 3 years.
- Bruce Garrioch via twitter: Expect Filip Kuba to get signed quickly. He’d like to go back to Tampa Bay.
- Sarah McLellan via twitter: Pyatt and Langkow want to return to Phoenix, but Coyotes unsure until they know what happens with Shane Doan and Ray Whitney.
- Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: Bryce Salvador on Devils big UFAs:
“In a perfect world, we’d be able to keep the team we had this last year,” Salvador said. “The reality is it’s tough to do. Up until Marty got an agent, you’d never have thought Marty would not be playing for the Devils. But there is the possibility.
“Those guys are a big part of the team. Everybody knows that and everybody wants to see what happens. I know I’m waiting to see what happens.”
- Josh Cooper via twitter: Predators GM David Poile:
“I don’t think we have too many holes on our hockey club. I think we have the one big hole, and that’s Ryan Suter,”
“I’m not expecting a quick resolution on (the Suter) situation,” Poile said. “It could be a couple of days. We have to go about our business and fill the holes of what needs to be filled based on the players available and the value that’s out there.”
“We’re looking for a veteran goaltender to back up Pekka (Rinne). We have Plan B in terms of if Suter is not coming back on defense. We have a couple of forwards we’re looking at. You just never know,” Poile said.
