Posts Tagged Tyler Myers
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- Bill Hoppe: Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers broke his leg Thursday night and is out for the season.
- Paul Hendrick: Maple Leafs Joffrey Lupul isn’t cleared for contact yet. He might be ready to go next week. David Alter: Coach Randy Carlyle said he feels that Lupul has been cleared for contact. Still out day-to-day. David Alter: Carlyle thought that Lupul was cleared for contact, Lupul confirms that he hasn’t been yet. Jonas Siegel: Carlyle confirmed that Lupul did suffer a concussion.
- David Alter: Maple Leafs Mikhail Grabovski remained in New York and is being examined for gastro intestinal issues. Terry Koshan: Dave Poulin on Grabovski: “We just wanted to have things cleared up after his weight loss. He has been cleared to play.”
- Stephen Whyno: Capitals Martin Erat is feeling better and could play today.
- Sam Carchidi: Flyers Daniel Briere said he’s ready to go today.
- Michael Vega: Bruins Patrice Bergeron (concussion) took part in the optional skate yesterday.
“Bergy will travel with us,’’ Julien said. “He’s skating now and he’s skating with us and he’s better off to work out with us than to stay behind.’’
Claude Julien on if Bergeron will play on Saturday,
“I don’t think so. We’re certainly going to be cautious with him. He’s had a history [of concussions] and we’re not going to take a gamble with it.
“We’re being extremely careful with Bergy and we’re going by the protocol. Never will this organization risk a player’s health for any reason. But he felt pretty good this concussion was moderate, and from what I’ve been told, it’s had a zero [effect] on the major one that he’s had and a zero issue on his brain.’’
- Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review: Sidney Crosby hasn’t skated since breaking his jaw. He’s been cleared to fly and traveled with the team on their Florida trip. Kris Letang returned to the lineup after dealing with a broken toe and groin injury. The groin is the bigger concern. Defenseman Paul Martin (broken bone in hand) skated this week, but hasn’t stick-handled. He could be ready for the start of May when the playoff start.
NHL Rumors II: Zuccarello, Sharks, ‘Hawks, Canucks, Bruins, Myers, Boyle, Sabres, Briere, Coburn, Blues and Penguins
- Steve Zipay via twitter: Rangers Mats Zuccarello’s agent: ”Will be glad 4 Mats Zuccarello’s sake that he will soon get 2 show NHL again how good he is.” Bob McKenzie via twitter: Paperwork from the KHL team/federations are the only thing holding Zuccarello’s return. Has a deal in place.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Matheson thinks the Oilers should go after Flyers forward Max Talbot.
If the Sharks trade anyone at the deadline, it will be defenseman Douglas Murray. Center Martin Handzus could also be moved. Ryane Clowe is another option, but if they are still in the playoff hunt, it would be hard to move him. He could get them a 2nd round pick and a prospect.
The Blackhawks could be looking for another center. Derek Roy could be a rental option. A 2nd round pick and prospect could work. The Canucks could be looking at Roy as well.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: The Bruins are looking for left-handed top-four defenseman. They inquired about Jay Bouwmeester, the asking price was high and his contract wouldn’t be easily added. Would they be interested in Ryan Whitney?
Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers could be available, but he has 6 years and $33 million left on his deal. A former NHL coach said: “I’m sure 29 other teams would like to take a run at him, figuring he just needs to be somewhere else. You know how it is.”
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Dan Boyle’s name keeps coming up, but he has one year left at $6.6 million. He’d be excellent in Philadelphia, but his age (37 in the summer) and money are an issue.
Lindy Ruff could have the Lightning’s head coaching job if he wants it. Ruff may wait to summer to see what happens with the Flyers or Rangers.
Sabres Robyn Regehr could be ideal in LA and would probably cost a 2nd round pick. Jordan Leopold could also be an option. Cory Sarich is available, but he has another year on his deal.
The Flyers would like to move Daniel Briere. He has a no-movement clause and feels he could be an amnesty buyout in the summer. He’d then have the choice as to where he’d end up as a free-agent.
The Flyers would trade Braydon Coburn, but he has a $4.5 million salary cap hit for the next three seasons.
The Blues would like Jay Bouwmeester, but at $6.8 million next year, they’d have to move some big cash. The Blues have been looking at Oilers Ryan Whitney.
You’d think the Blues and Lightning would have spoken about Brian Elliott. He has one year and $1.8 million left on his deal.
- Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Finding help for the Penguins blue line is GM Ray Shero’s next priority. They are not optimistic about getting a top-four, but a top-six is more realistic. They could use a “big, rangy, physical guy.” Rostislav Klesla could be an option. Coyotes GM Don Maloney has been scouting the Penguins. Malone and Shero may not have talked trade yet, but it could be soon.
Blues notes … Avalanche got Burned … Scouting the Flyers, Blues-Hawks, Bruins-Sens … Leafs Will Need to Make Roster Moves
- Andy Strickland of TrueHockey: A Blues trade of Kevin Shattenkirk for Daniel Briere makes zero sense for the Blues. Shattenkirk will eventually sign a contract extension with Blues. They talked before the lockout and will resume talks at some point, which could be after the season. He has arbitration rights and will get something north of $3 million a year. Comparables for the 22-year old would be Cam Fowler, Tyler Myers, Victor Hedman, John Carlson and Luke Schenn. The Blues could be looking for depth on the blueline, with the Maple Leafs, Jets, Coyotes and Sharks possibly looking to move a defenseman or two. The Blues can take on some salary.
- Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: After matching the Ryan O’Reilly offer sheet, the Avalanche will now have nearly $58 million tied into next seasons salary cap. That won’t leave them much room for UFA’s under the $64.3 million cap ceiling. They won’t be able to trade O’Reilly until Feb. 28th, 2014. After next season, they’ll have to deal with the expiring contracts of Matt Duchene, Paul Stastny and Gabe Landeskog. Stastny would be a UFA.
What the Flames did today, essentially, was potentially blow out the Avs’ salary structure in the next couple years. The Avs let the Flames set the market for O’Reilly’s value – and they had to swallow their pride and accept it because gambling that they’d get a lottery pick with the Flames’ first-round pick this year was too poor a prospect. How awful would it have been for this team if they’d not only let O’Reilly go to Calgary, but then gotten a worse draft pick maybe thanks to his helping them out the rest of the year in the standings? It would have been a humiliating blow.
And today was humiliating enough for Avs management. They clearly gambled that nobody would break the offer sheet code that most teams live by – especially in the year after a lockout – and that they would be able to dictate to O’Reilly what his market value would be, not the other way around. Well, guess what? They lost that bet.
- Elliott Pap via twitter: The Canucks said that they did not tender an offer sheet to O’Reilly.
- Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News: Oilers president Kevin Lowe, Sr. VP Craig MacTavish and Eastern scout Marey Gare took in the Flyers game on Wednesday. The Oilers are believed to be looking to move Ryan Whitney and Ales Hemsky. Darren Dreger via twitter: Dreger downplays their presence at the game as they are scouting for Team Canada before going to sports analytics conference in Boston.
- Lou Korac via twitter: Scouting the Blues-Blackhawks: Rangers, Predators, Avalanche, Oilers, Blue Jackets, Jets, Lightning, Hurricanes, Canadiens and Canucks.
- Craig Custance via twitter: Western Conference teams scouting the Bruins-Senators game.
- David Alter of Sportsnet: The Maple Leafs will need to figure out who they’ll send down to the Marlies when Matt Frattin returns, which may happen any day now. Only Nazem Kadri, Leo Komarov and Korbinian Holzer don’t need to clear waivers, but all are playing big roles. If it’s a forward, David Steckel is the likeliest choice. John-Michael Liles has been a healthy scratch lately. Mike Komisarek has only played in four games and has s $4.5 million salary cap hit. The Leafs could send Frattin down to the Marlies on a conditioning stint. Joffrey Lupul could be back soon as well, so another decision will have to be made.

- Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star: Zwolinski notes on some trends in the NHL at the quarter mark. The Maple Leafs still need a big No. 1 center. The Senators are expected to make a trade for a center to fill in for Jason Spezza. The Stars may start dealing their veterans. Roberto Luongo is likely to stay in Vancouver. The NHL will expand to 32 teams at some point. Trade rumors will heat up on Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Stephen Weiss and Jarome Iginla. The Oilers have lost 3 of their top 4 centers to injuries.
- Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: If the Avalanche were to sign Ryan O’Reilly to a one-year deal and he played in six games, he would become arbitration eligible this summer. If that happened, it might land him the big contract he wants. The Avs are likely not wanting this to happen and wouldn’t offer him a one-year deal because of this. Most people that are around O’Reilly are expecting him to be dealt now.
- Scott Brunside of ESPN: At the end of last season, Penguins GM Ray Shero pulled defenseman Paul Martin into his office and asked him if he wanted to be traded. Martin said:
“I basically told him I have a lot of pride in what I do,” Martin told ESPN.com. “I came here for a reason. It wasn’t just because of the money. [He had more lucrative offers.] I came here because I wanted to win a Stanley Cup.”
- Patrick Caisse via twitter: Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers was a healthy scratch again last night.
- Detroit Free Press via twitter: The Red Wings put goalie Joey MacDonald on waivers.
Sides exchange emails … Fehr speaks … Jokinen and Koivu heading overseas … Myers, Gardiner and Nash injuries
- John Shannon via twitter: Bill Daly and Steve Fehr exchanged emails yesterday, but have not spoken.
- Bob Mitchell of the Toronto Star: Don Fehr spoke to the CAW (Canadian Auto Workers) yesterday, and spoke to the media afterwards.
“It seemed to me that we ought to have been able to move forward and finish it off but so far they have not indicated they are willing to continue discussions.” Fehr told the media after giving his speech.
“There had been some movement. We responded with some movement.” Fehr said. “We think we’re done on the dollars or very close to it with the exception of one issue, transition, which we haven’t even discussed yet.”
“The way this negotiation sits, the percentage that players get out of industry revenue, assuming that the current proposals on the table hold, would result in massive concessions to the owners,” Fehr said. “When they say they’re negotiating against themselves, what exactly is it?
“What has moved in the players’ direction? It’s not salaries. It’s not the length of contract.”
“So far there has been no indication from the other side that there is any drop-dead date. All I can tell you is that when you’re in a negotiation, you keep at it and find a way to reach an agreement,” Fehr said.
- Bob Stauffer via twitter: The NHL won’t be making a “big” move to the NHLPA in the next couple days. To avoid the cancellation of more game, the players are going to have to make the next move.

- Larry Brooks of the NY Post: On Rick Nash’s groin injury that has led him to fly from Zurich to New York.
“It’s purely precautionary, but we’re taking the ‘Better safe than sorry’ approach,” Joe Resnick, Nash’s agent, told The Post. “There’s nothing for anyone to be alarmed about.”
“Once Rick sees the doctors, he’ll decide whether to return [to Switzerland],” Resnick said. “It seems like we might not be too far away from a deal here on a CBA, so what everyone is hoping is that he can get onto the ice with the Rangers as soon as possible.”
- Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun: After scoring his 2nd goal of the game, and eventual game winner, Marlies Jake Gardiner was pulled from the game.
“He wasn’t in a concussion state, just not feeling quite right,” coach Dallas Eakins said. “With all of our players, we err on the side of caution. We’ll re-evaluate him later tonight and tomorrow.”
- Bob Stauffer via twitter: If the NHL gets back to playing sometime in January, and with Andy Sutton’s injury status, the Oilers may need to add some depth along the blueline.

Price has headaches, concussion? Hall to have surgery today … Myers out … Wisniewski to return … Quincey suspendion video
- Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out: Radio-Canada is reporting that Canadiens goalie Carey Price has a concussion, but as of last night the Canadiens were disputing that. The Canadiens say that he is having headaches, but hasn’t been diagnosed with a concussion just yet. He’ll go through some tests this week to see what is causing the headaches. Price collided with a teammate Thursday morning and hasn’t felt the same since. It is possible that his season could be over. A Radi0-Canada reporter apparently overhead the Canadiens doctor on his cell phone talking to their head athletic therapist.
- Taylor Hall via twitter: Oilers forward Taylor Hall arrived in Cleveland yesterday and will have surgery today.
- Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News: Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers is out tonight, but hasn’t been rule out for Thursday or Saturday. Christian Ehrhoff is out this week.

- Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey was suspended for elbowing.
Morning notes on: Kessel, Crosby, Letang, Lidstrom, Kuznetsov, Gerbe, Nash, Selanne, Gomez and Toews
- Damien Cox of the Toronto Star: Cox doesn’t think Phil Kessel fits with the Maple Leafs. Despite his ability to score 30 goals,
“He’s no leader on a team still developing internal leadership. He’s not combative or a fierce adversary. He doesn’t bring size to the equation or pluck or two-way excellence.”
Cox thinks the Leafs should look at trading Kessel. He has a $5.4 million cap hit, and will get a $5.1 million salary next year and $5.4 million in the last year of his deal.
- Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Sidney Crosby will see time on the 1st power play unit with Evgeni Malkin. Crosby will play the point on some of the PP. Kris Letang is also expected back tonight.
- Helene St. James via twitter: Red Wings Nicklas Lidstrom suffered a bit of a setback. At yesterdays’ morning skate,
“I was more sore today when I skated, so that’s why I was out there for just a few minutes. It was more sore today.” He has a deep bone bruise and there is still some swelling, no fracture.
On shutting things down for a bit:
“We’ve talked about it,” he said. “I’m sure they’ll talk more to the coaching staff and see what the next step will be, but it’s still day-to-day. It’s discouraging that I haven’t started feeling better, as it’s going on two weeks now.”
- Dmitry Chesnokov via twitter: In a TV interview, Capitals prospect Evgeni Kuznetsov said he’s staying in the KHL next season.
- John Vogl via twitter: Sabres Nathan Gerbe was scratched from last night’s game with upper-body injury.
- Jim Matheson via twitter: A veteran pro scout on Blue Jackets Rick Nash, he loves his skill but “Does he make other people around him better?”
- Derek van Diest of the Toronto Sun: Blue Jackets Rick Nash won’t talk about his trade request and why he wanted out of Columbus.Defenseman James Wisniewski on how it is has been in the dressing room after Nash’s request came out last month,
“Our job is to go out there and play hockey,” said Blue Jackets defenceman James Wisniewski. “We go out there to try and win hockey games. What happened behind the scene is his personal business and we support him as a person and as a player.”
- Jeff Miller of the OC Register: Jari Kurri thinks that Teemu Selanne should keep playing,
“Everybody’s really happy with what he’s doing,” Jari Kurri said. “Keep going. Why stop now?”
“I’m hoping he keeps playing,” Kurri said. “Why stop? I know he wants to win. He wants to do well and he’s playing well. I don’t see any reason for him to stop.”
- Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette: Canadiens forward Scott Gomez will miss some time with a concussion. Gomez suffered the injury when he was hit by Sabres Tyler Myers, who was suspended for 3 games.
- Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune: (written on Tuesday) Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville on Jonathan Toews:
“it’s part of the process. Some days are better than others, but he knows his body and we’ll see how he is. Hopefully, we’ll get him back on the ice (Wednesday) and things progress.”
“Jonathan was excited when he was skating,” Quenneville said. “He’s still looking forward to getting back. Hopefully, it’s going to be soon.
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers gets a 3 game suspension for his hit from behind on Montreal Canadiens forward Scott Gomez.
The hit was in clear violation of rule 41.1 – Boarding.
Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers will have a disciplinary hearing for his hit on Canadiens forward Scott Gomez.
Do you think Myers will get suspended? How many games?
