Shawn Horcoff traded to Dallas for Phillipe Larson and a 7th rounder in 2016

Thoughts.  He was a good center man, caught too much shit because of his contract.  I'm happy we got another almost 5 million in cap space today.

The veteran goalie posted a .910 save percentage, 2.50 goals against average and 23-11-7 record in helping the Islanders reach the post-season for the first time since 2007.

For his career, the former ninth-rounder from Russia has a .912 save percentage and a 2.42 goals against average.

WINNIPEG -- Al Montoya says he's happy to return as the backup goaltender for the Winnipeg Jets after agreeing to a new contract Thursday that keeps him from testing free agency.

"I really enjoyed my time last year," he said of his first, abbreviated season with the Jets.

"This is a good group, a good team. We came so close last year. For me I like the coaching staff, I love working with the goalie coach (Wade Flaherty) so it was pretty simple."

He credits Flaherty with helping him return to a more natural athletic style of play.

"Somewhere along the way I kind of lost my own game and with Flatts I kind of got it back . . . I didn't play much last year but the games I did play in I felt my career's going in the direction I want and I have a lot more to show."

With his signing, the Jets have locked up the only unrestricted free agents general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff seemed eager to retain this year. The other was defenceman Grant Clitsome, signed earlier this week to a three-year, $6.2-million deal.

The Jets didn't release details of Montoya's contract but it was reportedly a one-year deal for the same $601,000 he pulled in last season.

Montoya squeezed in a quick conference call from Miami where he's attending his brother's wedding.

The 28-year-old played in seven games for the Jets last season, starting five and ending the season with a record of 3-1-0, a 2.91 goals against average and 0.899 save percentage.

He has suited up for 63 career NHL games between the Phoenix Coyotes, New York Islanders and Jets for a 24-18-10 career record, 2.77 goals against average and 0.906 career save percentage.

The Chicago native was originally drafted sixth overall by the New York Rangers in 2004.

Montoya's time on the ice was limited due to injury last season but he says he's feeling great this summer and anxious to start playing hockey again.

"With the Olympic break coming up I don't expect the pace of this season to be much different."

He says he and the Jets starting netminder Ondrej Pavelec enjoy pushing each other in practice.

"We definitely push each other. . . it makes you a better player at the end of the day."

He also says he likes living in Winnipeg and the strong fan support.

"The city's great, my family liked it, and I think the team's moving in the right direction."

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux agreed to an eight-year extension Thursday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com the deal is worth $66.2 million, which works out to an average annual value of $8.275 million per season and carries a full no movement clause.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the contract has not been signed and the extension not revealed by the Flyers.

The deal comes as Giroux was entering the final year of his contract and with the Flyers in the midst of reshaping a team that missed the playoffs last season.

A two-time 25-goal scorer, Giroux is the Flyers' top play-making offensive threat. He had 13 goals and 35 assists for 48 points in 48 games last season.

Overall, he has 291 points (91 goals, 200 assists) in 333 career games spread over six seasons in Philadelphia.

The Flyers have already made several splashes over the past two weeks. They landed this summer's most high-profile free agent by agreeing to terms with Vincent Lecavalier on a four-year contract Tuesday. Lecavalier was available after the Tampa Bay Lightning bought out the remaining years on their captain's contract.

Philadelphia was also aggressive in freeing up salary cap space. The team bought out the contracts of forward Danny Briere, who has agreed to a deal with Montreal, and goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.

The Flyers did announce on Thursday that they will re-sign journeyman centre Adam Hall to a one-year deal. The Flyers acquired Hall by claiming him off waivers in April.

CALGARY -- Right-winger Brian McGrattan and the Calgary Flames have agreed to a new two-year deal worth $750,000 a season.

McGrattan played 19 games with the Flames last season, scoring three goals after joining Calgary on Feb. 28.

The 31-year-old from Hamilton has six goals, 13 assists and 505 penalty minutes in his eight NHL seasons with the Ottawa Senators, Phoenix Coyotes, Nashville Predators and Calgary.

Flyers to sign goalie Ray Emery.


 

There were rumors that a connection between the Flyers front office and Chicago backup goalie Ray Emery would bring the former Flyer back to Philadelphia for another stay with the Flyers. It looks like those rumors have come to fruition, as multiple reports (originating from TSN's Darren Dreger) are reporting that Emery has signed a one-year deal with the Flyers to be one of their two goalies for next season. We don't know the exact dollar amount yet, but Dreger is guessing it'll be somewhere in the $1.7 to $1.8 million range.

Emery, who turns 31 in September, is coming off a fine year where he and Chicago starter Corey Crawford combined to win the Jennings Trophy (for the goalie/tandem that allows the fewest goals during the season). He posted a .922 save percentage across 21 regular-season games for the Cup champions in the shortened season, and has put up a .911 save percentage in the 65 appearances he's made since leaving the Flyers in 2010 with his hip injury.

Rumor #2 - Allfredsson will sign a one year deal with the Red Wings.


 

After 17 seasons and 1299 (regular season plus playoff) games, Daniel Alfredsson has left the Ottawa Senators, signing as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings.

Numbers Game looks at what Alfredsson brings to the Wings and what the Senators will need to replace in their lineup.

The Red Wings Get: RW Daniel Alfredsson.

Alfredsson, 40, suffered through the worst year of his career in 2010-2011, but has rebounded in the two years since to score 85 points in 122 games. That 0.70 points per game as a 39 and 40-year-old player ranks sixth since 1980 among players aged 39, 40 and 41. Alfredsson also put up better puck possession numbers in the last couple seasons too, an indication that his production rebound wasn't merely by luck.

A 13-time 20-goal scorer, Alfredsson has also been logging big minutes for the Senators, playing 19:21 per game last season, second-highest among Ottawa forwards.

In Detroit, Alfredsson will likely play a prominent role if not necessarily quite as many minutes, perhaps skating on the wing with fellow Swede Henrik Zetterberg, a position that should afford Alfredsson the opportunity to produce enough to justify his place on the depth chart, since Zetterberg consistently holds an edge in territorial play, regardless of who his linemates have been over the years.

At the same time, Alfresson did generate only 2.15 shots per game last season, the second-lowest rate of his career and his shooting percentage (9.9%) was the third-lowest of his career, so there are signs of declining production. Could he still score 50-plus points in a full season? Sure.

Ottawa will miss Alfredsson, who also led the team with 10 points in 10 playoff games last season, but the Senators have Jakob Silfverberg heading into his second season and Alfredsson's departure will likely make the Senators a more active suitor in free agency, where they could get highly-coveted David Clarkson, but may also want to consider Jarome Iginla, Michael Ryder or Clarke MacArthur to help replace the lost production.

Alfredsson's deal is reportedly for $3.5-million, with bonuses that could make it worth as much as $5.5-million.

It's rare for any player to last his entire career with one franchise, yet it always comes as a shock when one that has remained with a team for so long finally moves on. Alfredsson has given his all to the Senators and has every right to pick and choose where he will spend the last years of his career.

That he feels comfortable with Detroit, a team that still has a strong veteran Swedish contingent (including Johan Franzen, Niklas Kronwall, Jonathan Ericsson and Mikael Samuelsson in addition to Zetterberg) is understandable and, as strange as it might look initially, it's still easy to see Alfredsson as a solid complementary player for the Red Wings and, on a one-year deal, he's a low-risk investment for a team that expects to contend every year.
