  1. Backes Contract Talks on Hold Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Reports that contract talks between David Backes and the St. Louis Blues have slowed down drastically. He reportedly turned down a 3 year 26.5-million-dollar contract during training camp. That does not mean that he will not be signed, though it may not come any time soon. Backes has a full no trade clause which would make him difficult to move unless he wanted out of St. Louis. To be honest I don’t think it would be a very good move on the behalf of Blues to move him right now. He is a quality shut down center who can put up points in a very difficult division. However, if it comes down to it and he wants out there will be many suitors for the pending UFA. Other trade talk around the league: In Winnipeg recent rumblings have the Jets leaning more towards keeping Dustin Byfuglien over captain Andrew Ladd. However, it is not impossible that both would be moved at the deadline if the team keeps the downward trend going. If this does happen the team will be in an official rebuild, and I think that may be the best course of action. Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times has reported that the Tampa Bay Lighting have offered Steven Stamkos an 8 year 68 Million Dollar contract. Neither side has given this report any credibility however I do believe that this could be a starting number where the contracts would begin. It is very rare you see stars of this caliber move while still in their prime. So look for him to be signed eventually, but these recent contract talk leaks are very interesting and somewhat puzzling. This has been a very hush contract signing, and why would it change now. The source that first reported this was Elliotte Freidman of SportsNet, and you cannot get any more credible source. INSIDE EDGE HOCKEY NEWS * Photo by USAToday Sports Images
  2. In this humble bloggers opinion the Bruins are going to go get Dustin Bfyuglien from the Winnipeg Jets this summer. GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is one of the best in the business but I think that's the guy the Bruins want and I think him and Don Sweeney make a deal before camp opens. Any thoughts on that? Just spit-ballin' here...
  3. I've been hearing a lot of rumours about Eller. Is he staying, going? Being a lifetime Habs fan, I have to say that this season, I am not a satisfied with his performance. Last year, towards the end of the season, he was amazing. Now, I don't think that he is up to par. I wanted to get some of you guy's insight on what you think is going to happen. Don't get me wrong, I love Eller and the way he plays, but he does definitely need to step it up. If anyone could give me some information, that would be great. Thanks.
  4. NBC Sports Any thoughts on this? Realistically what would it cost the Wild, and would Yandle bring enough to the team for what it would cost them?
  5. Here's what it would take for me to give up P.K to the Flyers. To Flyers: P.K Subban, Gabriel Dumont To Habs: Scott Laughton, Samuel Morin, Tye McGinn, Matt Read, a 2nd round pick and a conditonal 1st in the 2015 draft (if P.K resigns with Flyers) This is what it would take. He's playing incredibly well this season and coming off a Norris Trophy? Think I'm crazy? Nope. He's that good. Don't like it? Guess you're not getting him.
  6. Apparently this guy doesn't have a great track record but I figured I'd post it since there isn't a lot to talk about other than this team being bad. Via Rich Smith (@ALLsportsINTEL):
  7. An ankle injury setback has him out for the season. Carolina wasn't that strong on D in the first place this will cause them to look elsewhere. There are a few D available as free agents. I would think taking a look at Hainsey would be a good option. Other possibilities include trade..... Philly has some options and are a frequent trade partner. OR they could throw the unsigned Franson an offer.
  8. [Hidden Content] The Montreal Canadiens added some much need toughness to their roster on Friday. The club acquired forward George Parros from the Florida Panthers in exchange for forward Philippe Lefebvre and a 7th-round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. The 33-year-old played 39 games with the Panthers last season, posting one goal and one assist with 57 penalty minutes. Parros will provide the Canadiens with some much needed size up front, and will likely take the burden of fighting off of undersized forward Brandon Prust, who regularly had to fight against the other team's heavyweight's last season. In eight seasons, Parros has 1007 penalty minutes in 452 games.
  9. Just came across the @NHLFlyers Twitter feed. Concussed during practice? Well, what does this do to his trade value?
  10. @HackswithHaggs: According to source w/knowledge of talks, call was made between BOS/PHI abt Briere. Caron & a pick mentioned, but was scuttled by concussion
  11. This is an interesting angle...first time, I've read anyone discuss moving Mez. This is the year to be a seller, and for the teams lingering around the cellar, it’s time to assess the situation, evaluate the roster and start shaping it for next season. It’s a harsh reality for Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, who hasn’t been in this position since taking over the GM job in October 2006. However, with one of the deepest crop of 18-year-olds in this year’s amateur draft, it may not be a bad idea to add another first-round pick. Couple that with the Flyers' own pick, which is looking more like a top-15 selection, and Holmgren could set himself up for another interesting and productive offseason. While many wonder if 35-year-old Danny Briere would graciously waive his no-trade clause, give the team some salary cap relief and provide a pick or two in return, I see the Flyers moving in a different direction. Try Andrej Meszaros. The Flyers' defenseman returned in March after separating his shoulder in the team’s fourth game of the season, which consequently forced him to miss the next six weeks. In the offseason he underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles'. Hard to believe he’s only 27 years old, but his body is already entering its mid-30s. Since his return, Meszaros hasn’t exactly solidified his place on the Flyers' blue line. He has been mixed and matched as head coach Peter Laviolette has stuck with Kimmo Timonen/Luke Schenn andBraydon Coburn/Nicklas Grossman as his top-two pairings. Meszaros has been fifth on the depth chart, logging an average of 18:33 very average minutes. He has yet to record a plus game with an overall minus-6 rating, and it’s tough to gauge where he might fit in for next season. However, if you’re one of those teams on the other side of the playoff fence, there are benefits to what Mez can bring. He has a very reasonable cap hit at $4 million, plus he’s under contract for next season. Under those terms, he would be a much more affordable and desirable option than Calgary’s Jay Bouwmeester, who has a hefty $6.5 million number and has never played in the postseason. Meszaros, on the other hand, would bring a ton of playoff experience: 46 career games, including a trip to the Stanley Cup Final (Senators ’07). He’s also capable of stepping up in all situations, and if healthy (raised eyebrows), Meszaros is good for 30-35 points next season. NHL defensemen are like big-league starting pitchers and teams will overpay to get their hands on one. When you look across the league, a number of teams have taken significant hits to their blue lines. The Ottawa Senators took a major hit after losing Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson for the remainder of the season. The Senators are certainly familiar with Meszaros. However, if I were Holmgren, I wouldn’t even rule out the rival Rangers and Penguins, who will also be desperate to add defense. The price tag would just be a little steeper. Start the bidding soon and by the time the April 3 trade deadline rolls around, Holmgren should be able to squeeze a first-round pick out of some team, and quite possibly a little bit more. And you don’t have to request Meszaros to waive a no-trade clause because he doesn’t have one. From the Flyers' standpoint, Meszaros simply needs to stay healthy and play a little bit better. It could definitely help the orange and black next season, and perhaps, many seasons after that
  12. A lot of smoke. Little fire. But it is interesting.... [Hidden Content] Per Rob Rossi of the Tribune-Review... Simon Despres, 21, is available – and the Columbus Blue Jackets’ three senior members of hockey operations attended the Penguins’ 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning at Consol Energy Center on Monday night. New general manager Jarmo Kekalainen, his assistant Chris MacFarland, and senior advisor Craig Patrick – who preceded Ray Shero as Penguins general manager – watched the game from the media level. Patrick, who still lives in suburban Pittsburgh, often attends Penguins games and sits in the stands, but he is rarely in the media area. The Penguins are seeking to bolster their defense, preferably with a player under contract who could serve as either a long-term partner for Kris Letang or possible insurance if Letang is traded before his contract expires in July 2014. Shero has said he hopes to reach contract extensions with Letang, 25, and center Evgeni Malkin, 26, this summer. Both will play under the final year of their current deals next season. Letang, though, is viewed by some team officials as perhaps the more difficult player to sign because he projects to nearly double his current $3.5 million salary-cap hit. Letang leads all NHL defensemen with 21 points. He has recorded six assists in the last two games, both Penguins’ wins. This past summer, while pursing free-agent defenseman Ryan Suter, the Penguins envisioned paring Letang with an elite partner. Jack Johnson, 26, could potentially fit that description. He was the third overall pick in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft and is a longtime friend of Penguins captain Sidney Crosby.
  13. Since Montreal obviously didnt answer their toughness issue, We don't need Sestito,Shelley and Rinaldo on this team. I'd like to send Shelley to Montreal but who would Montreal offer in return for Shelley or Sestito? Mr Habs fan, come on down
  14. Now, before you go all ballistic on me, hear me out!! What if we took Redden off the Rangers hands? They would have to give us something else to take that contract away from them, like a prospect or a draft pick, because they have no plans for him, and can no longer bury his contract in the minors. What if we took him and his $6.5M cap hit. For this year, he basically sucks up Pronger's LTIR money and a little more. Next year, he replaces Kimmo's $6.3M value, and then he's a UFA. Maybe force the Rags to take back Shelley and Lilja. If the Flyers could make it work cap-wise without affecting our chances to re-sign Giroux, I'd do it. The guy is only 35, and has NHL skills. He could definitely help out the Flyers blueline.
  15. Nothing's official yet, but it looks like Detroit has come to an agreement with Blues defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo. Through an article on NHL.com, the reported deal is for two years and 5 million dollars, which is a typical "good faith" offer from Ken Holland to a guy who shows enough potential to keep around. In this summer's free agent talk, Colaiacovo's perpetual nickname was "injury-riddled" however, given the "loss" of Ryan Suter to the Wild, I believe this is one of the best moves for the Red Wings. Carlo is a slick puck-moving defenseman, when he's healthy, and signing him from a heated division rival only adds to his worth. This should take some of the pressure off the Wings' blueliners, particularly the young guns, who can now be rotated in and out as the season progresses. This deal is about as good as it gets for the WIngs at this point in time. Colaiacovo will always be encircled with questions surrounding his health, but look on the bright side...if there's a lockout, he's almost certain to make it to April in one piece!!
  16. The Flyers strength is obviuosly up front. Our defense was suspect even if Mez were in there, now with him injured we are in real trouble and lets face it ,if Timmo goes down we are done. So this may not be a banner year in Philly and we lost some offense as well, with Carle and Jagr missing on the PP. Fast forward to next year, Timmo retires and there are no top FA dmen availaBle and no guarantee we can sign one. So how will we be able to improve our defense, without trading one of our young forwards? The answer is...there is no way. Even if Bourdon and Gus defy expectations, we still have no legit top 2 dmen, just a solid group of 3-6 type of guys. So if we can sign a guy like Perry or Getzlaf or both, then as much as it kills us, we can tun around and deal some young forward for a defenseman. I just don't see any other way of us landing a quality dman,and there certainly are none in our system. The only other alternative is ,if we are out of a playoff spot or limping along ,then at the deadline you dump Timmo or Briere for either good prospects or draft picks to help us have more to offer Ina trade for defense. Our inability to draft top dmen is now showing, we always end up having to trade for defense.
  17. There's still a fly's wing of a chance that things get screw'd up on paperwork (hindsight), and Webby will be a Flyer. A Fly's wing of a chance....
  18. Right now our defense is really up in the air, Pronger is done, Timmonen is coming off back surgery and has slowed down big time, Mez is coming off back surgery, who knows if their back injuries dont get worse over the season, back surgery is not a sure fire cure. Both could have lingering problems and be in and out of the lineup through the season. Bourdon missed two long stretches with concussions and Carle is an UFA. So right now the only sure things are Coburn and Grossman. Sure we have Gus, but is he ready for a full time spot and we have LILJA who is horrible. For the past 3 years all we heard is "we have arguably the best defense in hockey" yet every year our defense is decimated with injuries and in the middle of the pack in GAA. We need to concentrate on defense first ,as far as our offseason goes.To me ,we need to add two dmen to this team, one defensive, physical guy, and one guy with puck/PP skills, since Pronger, Timmo and Carle are all question marks, there goes our only dmen with any offensive skills. From what I have read Suter and Garrison are the two best UFA dmen, Suter has 7 or 8 teams that will be offering big $$, so that will drive the price up, so who knows if the Flyers have any shot for him.Maybe we sign Garrison and then make a deal for another good youn dman, using JVR as the trade bait ,lets face it, go over the roster, JVR is the most logical choice to be moved. Maybe we package JVR and our first rounder for a high first rounder and a second rounder to draft a stud dman who can step right in, this draft is loaded with dmen, its just a matter of being in position to pick the right guy. If that is not possible, then we try and deal JVR for a good young dman. I dont see any other way to get the defense we need without sacrificing a guy like JVR. If we make these moves, instead of blowing it all on Suter then we may be able to go after Parise ,since we will have more cap $$
  19. If Oduya is worth a second and 3rd and we gave up two second rounder plus for Grossman and Kubina, we easlily could have gotten a first and second for Carle. at the trade deadline people pay top dollar, if we try and deal Carle at the draft,we will be lucky to get a 3rd rounder. We blew it. We are out in the first round and have nothing to show when Carle walks
  20. February 26, 2012 | 6:26pm ET Flyers hunting for new goalie TheFourthPeriod.com The Philadelphia Flyers appear to be actively scouring the trade market for a No. 1 goaltender as the trade deadline inches closer, a source close to the situation told TFP. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren has been concerned with the play of goalies Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky, prompting him to search for a new netminder. According to the source, the Flyers are willing to package Bobrovsky as part of a deal that could include left wing James van Riemsdyk, depending on the goalie. The Flyers are believed to be eyeing Nikolai Khabibulin of the Edmonton Oilers, Jean-Sebastien Giguere of the Colorado Avalanche and Ondrej Pavelec of the Winnipeg Jets. Khabibulin and Giguere both have one-year remaining on their contracts beyond this season, while Pavelec can become a restricted free agent July 1. It's unclear if the Jets are willing to part with Pavelec, as the team battles for a playoff spot, however GM Kevin Cheveldayoff's primary concern is building a long-term competitive team and could be persuaded into making a move depending on an offer.
  21. Michael Russo is reporting Marek Zidlicky has waived his NTC for a move to the New Jersey Devils. Kurtis Foster has been told by the New Jersey Devils he will not be playing tonight.... This deal looks to be imminent.
  22. The fact that neither goalie has bus tire treads on their gear indicates to me that Holmgren is working furiously to try to trade one of those goaltenders. The "good guys," "work hard in practice" speech showcases them to some other team that might buy the "change of scenery" line of thinking and even consider eating Bryzgalov's contract. What's your over/under on what it will cost for the Flyers to get out of the Bryzgalov contract? (By that, I mean, the player the Flyers need to add over and above fair market value just to get rid of his top-five goalie contract [for a player not even in the top five in his own DIVISION!].)
