Panthers sign Gomez: one year, $900,000

Mike Halford

Jul 31, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

The Florida Panthers have made their first significant free agent splash of the summer, signing veteran forward Scott Gomez to a one-year deal.

“Scott is a veteran center who adds further depth to the middle of our line-up,” GM Dale Tallon said in a release. “He is a quick and skilled forward, with a wealth of hockey experience including two Stanley Cup titles, who will be a leader for our younger players.”

The deal is reportedly worth $900,000, according to Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos.

Gomez, 33, spent last season in San Jose on a one-year, $700,000 deal after being bought out by Montreal prior to the start of the season. He appeared in 39 games for the Sharks, scoring 15 points, and appeared in nine postseason contests, averaging over 15 minutes per night while notching two points.

San Jose head coach Todd McLellan raved about Gomez’s presence on the ice and in the dressing room.

“Gomer has been a very good player for us in a number of different ways,” McLellan told CSN Bay Area in March. “I don’t want to say it’s surprising, but he’s almost like a third or a fourth coach.”

The move makes sense for the Panthers, who are in need of veteran presences. Tallon is on record saying the club expects to “go young” next season and rely heavily on its prospects.

Florida has been stockpiling high draft picks ever since 2010 — the year Tallon joined the club — and now appears primed to show ‘em off.

In 2010, it was Erik Gudbranson (third overall), Nick Bjugstad (19th) and Quinton Howden (25th).

In 2011, it was this year’s Calder Trophy winner, Jonathan Huberdeau (third overall) and Rocco Grimaldi (33rd overall).

In 2012, it was Mike Matheson (23rd overall) and at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, it was Aleksander Barkov (second overall).

All told, that’s seven top-35 picks, and a few others selected just outside the top 35 (Alex Petrovic, Vincent Trochek) that are ready to challenge for spots as well.

Gomez will join a veteran leadership group that includes captain Ed Jovanovski (37 years old) and fellow blueliners Mike Mottau (35) Mike Weaver (34) and Brian Campbell (33).

They have the picks and cap space means nothing to Homer.

I'm still convinced that Gary the Boob Bettman is an NBA stooge. The guy is fucking clueless. The NHL needs to contract some of the sunbelt teams and now he's proposing EXPANSION? What a fucking moron!

Flames re-sign Brodie — two years, $4.25 million

Joe Yerdon

Jul 31, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

Calgary GM Jay Feaster is taking care of one of their promising young defensemen.

The Flames announced they’ve re-signed restricted free agent T.J. Brodie to a two-year, $4.25 million deal. That works out to a $2.125 million cap hit over that time.

Last season, Brodie emerged as one of Calgary’s more trusted blue liners playing an average of over 20 minutes per game. Eerily enough, he equaled his offensive output from the previous year last season in seven fewer games with two goals and 12 assists.

At age 23 he’s easily the Flames’ youngest defenseman and they’re more than happy to see him improve his game. That alone may not be enough to stop some from questioning why he got such a juicy raise ($1.2 to nearly $2 million) coming off his entry-level deal.

I'm a big Brodie fan. He should be in the top pairing in Calgary next year.

Seattle is a big Hockey market. They have the Seatlle Thunderbirds & the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. Here's the website for the history of Seattle Hockey.

That's fine if you want a Seattle team. Why are the Islanders still in LI with their attendance or Phoenix?

He probably will be but I think that says more about Calgary's lack of blueline depth than it does about how good Brodie is.

The Islanders are moving to Brooklyn after next season.

Detroit will be retiring Nicklas Lidstrom's # 5 this season.



from tsn.ca:

The Detroit Red Wings announced on Thursday that they will retire Nicklas Lidstrom's No. 5 jersey in a ceremony on March 6.

The banner will be raised to the roof of Joe Louis Arena before a game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Lidstrom retired following the 2011-12 campaign after 20 seasons, all with the Red Wings.

"For a long time, there was no doubt in ownership's and management's mind that Nicklas Lidstrom would play his entire career with the Detroit Red Wings and that his sweater would fittingly go up into the rafters along with the other all-time greatest Red Wing players – Abel, Delvecchio, Howe, Lindsay, Sawchuk and Yzerman," said Red Wings vice president Jim Devellano in a statement.

A member of the exclusive "Triple-Gold" club, Lidstrom won both an Olympic gold medal (2006) and an IIHF World Championship (1991) with Sweden in addition to the four Stanley Cups he won with the Red Wings.

Lidstrom won seven Norris Trophies in ten seasons starting in 2001. He played in 12 NHL All-Star Games and was named to the league's First All-Star Team 10 times.

Taking over the Red Wings captaincy when long-time teammate Steve Yzerman retired in 2006, he would lead the team to back-to-back Cup Finals appearances in 2008 and 2009, becoming the first European player to captain a Cup champion in 2008.

Originally selected in the third round (53rd overall) by the Red Wings in 1989, Lidstrom racked up 264 goals and 878 assists in 1,564 career NHL games.

I like the fact that they are doing when Colorado is in town since those 2 teams had a great rivalry a few years ago.

St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - The St. Louis Blues and defenceman Jay Bouwmeester agreed to a five-year contract extension on Thursday.

The deal is worth $27 million, an average annual value of $5.4 million.

Bouwmeester, who had one year left on his current deal, came over in a late- season trade with Calgary last April. He posted a goal and seven points in 14 games for the Blues before adding an assist in the first playoff action of his career.

Selected third overall by Florida in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, the 29-year-old Bouwmeester has registered 72 goals and 235 assists in 764 career games.

Report: Kings agree to two-year deal with Clifford

Joe Yerdon

Aug 2, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

The Kings are making sure to keep their forward group as loaded up as their defensive corps.

John Hoven of Mayor’s Manor reports the Kings have reached an agreement with left wing Kyle Clifford on a two-year contract. Clifford was a restricted free agent this summer.

After breaking out last season as more of an offensive threat, Clifford’s game rounded out. Adding seven goals and seven assists to his 51 penalty minutes made him one of the more difficult players to go up against. Offense with tough, physical play is hard to find.

Clifford will compete for a spot potentially in the Kings’ top-six forward group of the left wing now that Dustin Penner signed in Anaheim. He’ll go up against the likes of Daniel Carcillo and possibly Tyler Toffoli to do that.

This signing gives Los Angeles 25 NHL contracts on their roster. Any given night means having as many as 23 players up with the big club. GM Dean Lombardi will have some decisions to make on who gets to stay.

Report: Senators re-sign Da Costa to one-year deal

Cam Tucker

Aug 2, 2013, 5:06 PM EDT

The Ottawa Senators have agreed to terms with 24-year-old center Stephane Da Costa, according to James Gordon, sports editor of the Ottawa Citizen.

Gordon reported online in the Ottawa Senators Extra, Da Costa’s agent, Wade Arnott, confirmed the deal – one year – had been completed between the two sides.

Born in the hockey hotbed of Paris, France, Da Costa has spent parts of three seasons in the National Hockey League with the Senators.

In 35 NHL regular season games combined since the 2010-11 season, Da Costa has scored four goals and seven points.

As reported by Allen Panzeri of the Ottawa Citizen, Da Costa is listed among a group of forwards that will be in a battle for the final two forward positions on the Senators for next season.
