Rangers sign Dominic Moore: one year, $1 million

Mike Halford

Jul 5, 2013, 3:34 PM EDT

The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with veteran forward Dominic Moore, according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

The deal is believed to be a one-year, $1 million contract, and it’s a nice development given how difficult the last two years have been for the 32-year-old.

In January, Moore’s wife, Katie, passed away after a battle with liver cancer. News of the diagnosis broke a year earlier, when Moore was playing with the San Jose Sharks.

Moore stepped away from the NHL for the 2013 season, but recently told Damien Cox of the Toronto Star he was looking to get back into action.

A former Harvard University standout, Moore began his NHL career with the Rangers in 2003-04, and went on to play for Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Toronto, Buffalo, Florida, Montreal, Tampa Bay and San Jose.

One of his best seasons came with the Bolts in 2010-11, when he posted a career-high 18 goals in 77 regular-season games, then post up 11 points in 18 playoff games as Tampa Bay advanced to the Eastern Conference finals.

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.

NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators wasted no time attacking the free-agent market in an attempt to boost their anemic offence.

As the NHL free agency period opened Friday, Nashville added forwards Viktor Stalberg, Matt Cullen, Matt Hendricks and Eric Nystrom. The Predators also signed goaltender Carter Hutton to a one-year, two-way contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 at the AHL level.

Nashville scored just 2.27 goals per game last year to match the Florida Panthers for the lowest average in the NHL. The Predators have invested heavily to avoid a repeat performance.

Stalberg signed a four-year, $12 million deal, Nystrom earned a four-year, $10 million deal, Hendricks will receive $7.4 million over the next four years, and Cullen signed a two-year contract worth $7 million.

The 27-year-old Stalberg had nine goals and 14 assists in 47 games for the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks this season. He appeared in 19 playoff games and had three assists.

Stalberg, a four-year veteran, had 22 goals and 43 assists for the Blackhawks in 2011-12. His contract will pay him $2.5 million each in 2013-14 and 2014-15 and $3.5 million each in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

Nystrom, 30, had seven goals and four assists for Dallas this season. He also had 61 penalty minutes in 48 games. Nystrom had 16 goals and five assists in 74 games in 2011-12. He will make $2 million each of the next two seasons and will receive $3 million each in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

The 36-year-old Cullen had seven goals and 20 assists in 42 games for Minnesota this season. He has totalled 202 career goals and 360 assists in 1,073 regular-season NHL games since 1997-98. His contract will pay him $3 million in 2013-14 and $4 million in 2014-15.

Hendricks, 32, had five goals and three assists in 48 games for Washington this season. He led the Capitals with 73 penalty minutes and ranked third on the team in face-off efficiency (56.8 per cent). Hendricks has 27 goals and 31 assists in 263 career games. He will receive $1.85 million annually over the next four years.

Hutton, 27, played one game for the Blackhawks this season and 51 games for Rockford of the AHL. He had a 2.72 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage with the IceHogs.

I always like that Jarome Iginla. ;)



from tsn.ca:

Jarome Iginla has decided to continue his career with the Boston Bruins.

Over Iginla's 16 seasons, he has won two Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophies as the league's leading goal scorer as well as an Art Ross Trophy, the Lester B. Pearson Award, the Mark Messier Leader of the Year Award and the King Clancy Memorial Trophy.

In 1232 career games, Inginla has scored 530 goals and 1,106 points, while being named to play in seven NHL All-Star Games, three NHL First All-Star Teams, one NHL Second All-Star Team and earning two Olympic Gold Medals.

WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets stayed quiet on the first day of free agency until they made a trade to pick up a right-winger.

The Jets acquired Devin Setoguchi from the Minnesota Wild for a second-round pick in the 2014 draft Friday, adding another player in the top-6 forward mix.

General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said recently one of his top priorities was to improve at right wing, then traded for Michael Frolik from the Chicago Blackhawks at the draft. Frolik figured to compete for a second-line role, but Cheveldayoff didn't rule out making another move.

That came Friday evening when he got Setoguchi, who was reportedly being shopped by the Wild. The 26-year-old had 13 goals and 14 assists this past season.

Setoguchi had a career-high 65 points in 2008-09 while with the San Jose Sharks and hasn't come close to hitting that mark since.

Clowe was too expensive for the Rangers when they've got alot of younger talent as RFA's to re-sign. It'd have been nice to have him, but I'll let the Devils take him for that money. He's not worth it.

Blackhawks bring back Nikolai Khabibulin

James O'Brien

Jul 5, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

With Ray Emery headed back to Philadelphia, the Chicago Blackhawks found their new backup via a retread as well. Nikolai Khabibulin signed a one-year deal with the team, according to CSNChicago.com’s Tracey Myers.

The financial terms aren’t clear yet, but one can just about guarantee that “The Bulin Wall” took a massive cut from the $3.75 million he earned in 2013. Update: his agent Jay Grossman indicates it’s $2 million, although some of that is based on incentives.

While it’s reasonable to worry how well the 40-year-old can back Corey Crawford, Khabibulin seems to up his game when his contract is about to expire, last season included.

Obviously a lot of variables can influence these numbers, but it’s still amusing to compare and contrast his contract year work to the season he endured before. Here’s a chronology:

Winnipeg/Phoenix

1997-98: 70 games played, .900 save percentage
1998-99: 63 GP, .923 save percentage

Tampa Bay

2002-03: 65 GP, .911 save percentage
2003-04: 55 GP, .910 save percentage … however, he won the Stanley Cup and had a .933 save percentage in the playoffs

Chicago

2007-08: 50 GP, .909 save percentage
2008-09: 42 GP, .919 save percentage (stole fellow contract year beneficiary Cristobal Huet’s job)

Edmonton

2011-12: 40 GP, .910 save percentage
2013: 12 GP, .923 save percentage

Again, those numbers could be purely coincidental, and he’s had other strong seasons in his career.

Still, if Blackhawks fans want a reason to feel better about the team signing an aging goalie who experienced some recent personal issues, his work in contract years might help.

More on the Iginla signing.


from tsn.ca:

Iginla’s contract is cap-friendly for the Bruins, counting just $1.8 million in 2013-14. If he achieves any or all of the $4.2 million in performance bonuses, that money counts in 2014-15.



So if my math is right the Bruins have just over $ 7.2 left to sign Rask which had better be enough. By the way - I'm realling liking Boston's top 6 for next season:

Lucic - Krejci - Iginla or Eriksson
Marchand - Bergeron - Eriksson or Iginla

Derek Roy inks one-year, $4 million deal with St. Louis

Ryan Dadoun

Jul 6, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

The St. Louis Blues have made a big splash at a discount price by signing forward Derek Roy to a one-year, $4 million contract, according to TSN’s Aaron Ward. The Blues noted that the move is still pending a physical.

Roy surpassed the 60-point milestone for four consecutive seasons with the Buffalo Sabres from 2006-07 to 2009-10, but he was limited to just 35 games in 2010-11 and struggled offensively the following season.

The 30-year-old attempted to bounce back in 2013 and ended up with seven goals and 28 points in 42 games between the Dallas Stars and Vancouver Canucks. That wasn’t enough to earn him a lucrative long-term contract, but he’ll get another shot next summer.

Roy gives the Blues another scoring center that should boost the team after they finished in the middle of the pack offensively last season. They still have a little under $8 million left in cap space, according to Cap Geek, but they still need to re-sign restricted free agents Alex Pietrangelo and Chris Stewart.
