Posts Tagged Ryan Malone
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Sources saying that Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill will replace GM Joe Nieuwendyk in Dallas. Andy Strickland: Confirms reports that Nill will replace Nieuwendyk.
- Erik Erlendsson: Erlendsson doesn’t see the Lightning buying out Ryan Malone or Teddy Purcell. Trading Malone is a possibility.
- The Fourth Period: It’s thought that the Flames were close to trading Cory Sarich at the deadline. Teams also called about Lee Stempniak, Curtis Glencross and Alex Tanguay. GM Jay Feaster has indicated that he isn’t really interested in trading Glencross. If Miikka Kiprusoff retires, the Flames will be on the lookout for a new No.1 goalie.
- Mike Vogl: The Capitals signed Michal Neuvirth to a 2-year, $5 million extension. He’ll earn $2.4 million next year, and $2.6 million the following year.
- Eric Stephens: Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau won’t name is starting goalie for Game 1, but added that he’s known who it will be for awhile.
- Andi Petrilli: (Canucks lose 7-2, 6 goals in the third) Canucks Roberto Luongo was off the ice, undressed, showered and out of the arena in 12 minutes. Jason Botchford: “I’m not sure how furious Luongo is. He should be used to getting hung out there and embarrassed by now.”
- Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun: The Jets have nine RFAs, including: Zach Bogosian, Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little. Wiebe thinks they should lock up Bogosian to a max-length eight year deal worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $48 to 50 million.
“You never know. It’s a negotiation. It’s not something that usually happens overnight. “I don’t really know what I’m expecting as far as how smooth or how not smooth it’s going to go,” said Bogosian. “Yeah, I’ve really kind of settled in here and I’ve enjoyed my time. Whether it’s two years, eight years or 10 years, I’m going to enjoy playing here.
“I’m looking forward to that next step. I want to be part of the solution moving forward, as far as getting in the playoffs and winning a championship.”
Wheeler will be looking for a raise from his $2.55 million, and could get a long-term deal.
Little should get a multi-year deal for more than the $3 million he was making.
Alex Burmistrov is an interesting case, as some think he could bolt for the KHL or could use a fresh start with a new organization.
- Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News: Sabres Thomas Vanek has thought that Friday’s game could have been his last in a Sabres uniform.
“Let’s be honest,” Vanek said. “I’m not stupid. I know I have a year left and they can probably deal me for prospects, young guys, whatever else is out there. Yeah, I’ve thought about it. If it looks like it’s a long rebuild, then it probably makes sense for both parties to move on.”
“I don’t know what the plan is,” Vanek said. “If they’re turning it over to the younger guys, it’s a turnover. Or are they going to build around us again? It’s all speculation at this point because you guys don’t know and I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Sabres Ryan Miller also realizes that his days could be number.
“Around this stage of a contract, you have to be realistic,” Miller said. “In the last year of your deal, if you’re not part of the plan, you become an asset that’s tradable. So I’m just trying to stay open to coming back and trying to stay excited about playing hockey games in the NHL if it’s not going to work out.”
From twitter unless noted otherwise
- Darren Dreger: Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said that he was told at noon yesterday that they had a deal for Jarome Iginla. It is now clear that Iginla must have directed the Flames towards the Penguins. Boston Bruins: Chiarelli: ”we brought up Torey, scratched Koko and Bart – relied on the fact that we had the deal”
- Joe Haggerty: Iginla was calling the shots and wanted to end up in Pittsburgh. Flames took the lesser offer.
- Darren Dreger: Some think that Iginla’s decision to play for the Penguins was made before last night.
- Elliotte Friedman: Flames GM Jay Feaster is off to Toronto to make pitch for Danny DeKeyser.
- Patrick Caisse: Danny DeKeyser’s agent, Don Meehan, told Caisse that he’ll likely have a decision today, tomorrow at the latest.
- The Fourth Period: Multiple sources are saying that the Lightning are getting calls on Martin St. Louis. He has two years left at a $5.625 million salary cap hit. He has a no-movement clause. The Bruins, Red Wings and Rangers are believed to have shown interest. The Lightning could also be getting calls on Ryan Malone.
- Andy Strickland: Sabres Ryan Miller handed in a list of 8 teams he won’t accept a trade too before the season started.
- Andy Strickland: Strickland would be surprised if the Blues moved any roster players at the deadline. Draft picks and prospects most likely.
- Joe Yerdon of Pro Hockey Talk: Through translation of a Renaud Lavoie entry, Jarome Iginla submitted a list of four teams he’d accept a trade too: Bruins, Blackhawks, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh.
- Larry Brooks of the NY Post: If the Stars were looking for a major overhaul, could they look at trading Loui Eriksson? The Rangers would be interested. The Stars could make Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy and Eric Nystrom available.
- Mark Spector via twitter: Flames GM Jay Feaster sent an email to all teams letting them know that defenseman Anton Babchuk and Cory Sarich are available. Both players have no-trade clauses.
- Lisa Dillman via twitter: Dillman would be surprised if the Kings didn’t take a look at Cory Sarich. Sarich was a Sutter point at one point in time.
- Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times: Capitals Mike Ribeirosaid he’d like to re-sign but it would be on him terms/long-term. He is looking for a 4 or 5 year deal.
“If we can agree to a long-term [contract], then I’ll be more than happy to stay here,” Ribeiro said. “But I don’t know if I’m looking for two years and change place and then another two years. I don’t think I want that. So we’ll see what we’re going to come to.”
“Five years for me is long term,” he said. “Two, three years I don’t think it’s long term. It’s short-term. Two, three is short term. Four, five, six [is] long-term. Then 10 years like Ovi, that’s a marriage thing.”
“I didn’t think it was the right time to talk about contract then, but now that we’re getting closer to the trade deadline and team’s doing better now, there will be big decisions next week to be made,” Ribeiro said.
- Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune: It may be a slow trade deadline day for the Lightning. Nate Thompson may have received the most interest, but he isn’t going anywhere now. Some teams might be interested in Marc-Andre Bergeron as a depth defenseman. Erlendsson doesn’t see Martin St. Louis being traded. Ryan Malone’s shoulder injury may keep teams away. Sami Salo has a modified no-movement and would leave a veteran hole on the blue line next season if he were traded. Eric Brewer may get some interest, but he has two years left on his contract and has a modified no-trade clause.
