Looks like Letang is pricing himself out of Pittsburgh.


from tsn.ca:


A source told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com that Kris Letang's camp informed the Penguins on Thursday night that they were turning down an eight-year contract offer worth about $56 million.

LeBrun added that whether more contract talks are coming or whether the Penguins put Letang on the trade market remains to be seen.

LeBrun was also told by a source that Letang's camp counter-offered with a long-term deal which would pay less than $8 million - but more than $7.5 million - and the Penguins said it was too high.

Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported on Wednesday that Letang preferred the Toronto Maple Leafs atop a potential list of teams to go to should he be unable to sign an extension with the Penguins.

One year ago, the Penguins traded Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes after he also declined a long-term contract extension.

Where possible trades are concerned, Letang himself has no final say on who his next team would be.

Rossi told TSN Radio 1050 on Wednesday, "I've been told that if the Penguins couldn't reach some sort of understanding with Letang, and the belief was they wouldn't be able to sign him to some sort of deal, that Toronto has emerged as a preferred landing spot - perhaps by Letang. It would be a place that he would be willing, if dealt, to perhaps sign a long-term deal."

Calgary and Colorado make a 4 player deal.


from tsn.ca:

The Calgary Flames have traded forward Alex Tanguay and defenceman Cory Sarich to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for forward David Jones and defenceman Shane O'Brien.

"This trade adds needed size up front and grit on the back end while also allowing us to get younger." said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster in a statement. "We like the fact that Jones plays a north-south game, drives hard to the net, kills penalties and is a right hand shot. O'Brien is a hard guy to play against, knows how to get under the skin of the opposition and stands up for his teammates. We are pleased to add both of these players to our organization."

The deal sends the 33-year-old Tanguay back to the city where he started his career. Drafted by the Avalanche in first round (12th overall) in 1998, Tanguay played his first six seasons for Colorado before being traded to the Flames in June, 2006. Tanguay played two seasons in Calgary and had stops in Montreal and Tampa Bay before again signing as an unrestricted free agent with Calgary in July, 2010.

Tanguay had 11 goals and 16 assists in 40 games for the Flames last season.

Sarich, 34, had two assists in 28 games for the Flames this year. The veteran has also skated for Buffalo and Tampa Bay in his 14 NHL seasons.

In Jones, the Flames receive a 28-year-old who struggled with three goals and six assists in 33 games last season. But the Guelph, Ontario native had much better seasons in the previous two years, where he had 20 goals in 2011-12 and 27 goals in 2010-11. He has 70 goals and 126 points in 272 games, all with Colorado.

O'Brien, 29, is a physical blueliner who had four assists and 60 penalty minutes in 28 games last season. He has also played for Anaheim, Tampa Bay, Vancouver, and Nashville over seven NHL campaigns.

Alfredsson is returning to Ottawa for 1 more season.


from tsn.ca:

Ottawa Senators fans will be celebrating more than Canada Day this weekend, as team captain Daniel Alfredsson will be playing another season in the nation's capital.

Alfredsson's agent, J.P. Barry, confirmed the news to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger on Friday morning.

"He brings to the table not only talent, but the intangibles are just as important for the most part: leadership, character, the willingness to work with young players," Senators general manager Bryan told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com. "It's nice to hear that he wants to play. Now it's just a matter of getting a contract done with him."

Murray also said he is ready to get to work on a new deal for his captain.

"We were informed late this morning by Daniel's agent, JP Barry, that Daniel has made a decision and is committed to play next year for the Senators," Murray said Friday in a statement. "We now will begin the process of negotiating a contract, which we hope to have completed in the near future."

Swedish television station SVT World spoke to Alfredsson this week.

"I've never been so tired after a season earlier, even though it was so short," Alfredsson told the station. "I needed some time to think about the future, but the important thing is that the urge is there."

Alfredsson returned to Sweden with his family following their postseason exit. He met with Murray prior to leaving and said he would likely give him a decision on his future by Draft Day.

"I came home to Sweden on Monday and felt I can do this one more summer," he said. "I feel a little excited to get going and start exercising.

"The body has felt good lately. I missed a game this season and that was because I had a cold. In this way it has been positive, I have been freshened and it has affected my decision."

The 40-year-old, who's an unrestricted free agent, must now negotiate a new contract with Murray. If the two sides do agree on a new deal, Murray can't officially re-sign him until the free agency window opens July 5.

Alfredsson led the Senators in scoring through the playoffs with four goals and 10 points and was third during the regular season with 10 goals and 16 assists.

Some Compliance Buyout news:




- The Tampa Bay Lightning are parting ways with their longest-serving player, as the club will buy out the rest of Vincent Lecavalier's 11-year, $85 million contract.

A compliance buyout of the the deal - paying out a total of $32.67 million - rids the Lightning of a $7.727 million salary cap hit through the 2019-20 season.




- The New York Rangers have decided against using their final compliance buyout on forward Brad Richards this season.

The 33-year-old has seven years and $36 million left on his deal that has an annual cap hit of $6.667 million.




- The Montreal Canadiens have informed defenceman Tomas Kaberle that he will be the team's second and final compliance buyout.

The veteran defenceman has one-year and $4.5 million left on his current contract, which carries a $4.25 million cap hit.

The Rakovnik, Czech Republic native played in only 10 games with the Canadiens in 2012/13 and contributed three assists.

Kaberle signed a three-year, $12.75 million deal with the Hurricanes in 2011 after capturing the Stanley Cup as a mid-season pickup with the Boston Bruins.




- The Philadelphia Flyers announced on Thursday that they are buying out the final two years of Daniel Briere's contract.

The move will shave $6.5 million off the Flyers' salary cap. Philadelphia had one of the NHL's most expensive payrolls last season, and has been forced into a position to shed salary in order to get under next season's cap, which will drop from $70.2 million to $64.3 million.

Under NHL rules, teams have the option of two amnesty buyouts to terminate contracts before the start of the 2014-15 season.

The Flyers will now have to pay Briere 75 percent of his remaining money owed - $3.75 million – from his original eight-year, $52 million contract that he signed in free agency on July 1, 2007.




- Calling the decision to sign Ilya Bryzgalov two years ago a "costly mistake," the Philadelphia Flyers will buy out the remainder of the goalie's hefty contract.

The move made Tuesday saves the team nearly $6 million under the salary cap for each of the next seven years. Bryzgalov was two seasons into a $51 million, nine-year contract he signed in 2011. The Flyers will have to pay him two-thirds of the balance owed on his remaining term, or $23 million.

Last week, the Flyers exercised the first of their two compliance buyouts on forward Danny Briere.

Bryzgalov was 52-33-10 with a 2.61 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage in the regular season for Philadelphia, which failed to make the playoffs this year.

Fuckin' A on Richards. I don't see what he brings to the table at this point and they have enough young centers. I'd prefer JT Miller.

Edit-I'd rather have Lecavalier, who is still super-productive.

Lots of rumours flying around about some possible big names changing teams. These are all from TSN and Sportsnet:



- Boston might be looking to move Tyler Seguin. I highly doubt this and it is even more unlikely since UFA Nathan Horton has informed the Bruins that he will be testing the Free Agent market.

- Nathan Horton apparently wants a 5 to 6 year deal worth $ 6 million a season which means he won't be back with Boston next season. Look for the Bruins to try to trade his UFA rights this weekend.

- Vancouver is apparently now trying to deal Cory Schneider. Edmonton is said to be very interested and the asking price is a top prospect and a 1st round pick.

- Dallas is the frontrunner to sign Vincent Lecavalier. Boston, Detroit, Toronto and Montreal are also interested in Lecavalier.

- Edmonton is looking at adding a top 4 blueliner and the 2 names that keep popping up are Braydon Cobourn ( Philadelphia ) and Johnny Boychuk ( Boston ).

- Boston is close to signing Patrice Bergeron to an 8 year extension worth about $ 6.5 million per season.

- Tuukka Rask is asking the Bruins for a multi-year deal worth $ 7 million a season.

- Minnesota is likely to trade Cal Clutterbuck this weekend.

- UFA Ryan Clowe wants to return to the NY Rangers but the Rangers have very little cap room.

Quite a few teams looking to move up in this draft - I think we may have some deals tonight and tomorrow.

The Montreal Media is begging for a Lecavalier signing, which means it's not happening. Gotta envy the guy - gets bought out for 30 million plus and will get 4 million per year on his next deal.

If his last name was Smith or Jones the French Montreal media wouldn't say one word about Montreal signing the overpaid bugger.
