The Dallas Stars and defenseman John Klingberg have agreed to terms on a seven-year contract extension that will average $4.2 million annually, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Mike Kelly of the NHL Network reports that the deal is worth $29.75 million.

The rookie defenseman recorded 11 goals and 29 assists in 65 games this season for a Stars squad that missed the postseason.

The 2010 fifth-round pick led all rookie defenseman in scoring with his 40 points and was also the top point-getter on the blue line for Dallas.

He was scheduled to become a restricted free agent on July 1.

General manager Ron Hextall spoke about letting Berube go.
"I wanted to make the right decision. I put all the facts together, but in the end, you go with your gut," said Hextall. "You're looking for the coach who fits your team. In the end, we're looking for the guy to take the group to another level."
"Is the coach the right coach for your team now? If the answer is no, you have to move on. That's what we did here," he explained. "I would like to have a guy in place by the draft. That's the goal...But we're going to do our due diligence."
"Craig Berube is a good friend of mine; he's a terrific man. But professionally, I have an obligation to do what I think is best."
Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly reports that the rest of the coaching staff is still employed for now.
Berube amassed a record of 75-58-28 in 161 games as head coach. The dismissal comes as no surprise after the Flyers, who had one of the highest payrolls in the league, missed the postseason.

Berube went from a guy who made his career fighting to becoming a coach who didn't want his players to fight or even stand up for each other. He needed to go.

A trio of employed coaches in other organizations are reportedly on the Flyers' radar. According to Panaccio:
A league source said the Flyers had their eye on three current NHL coaches who could be free in the weeks ahead: Detroit’s Mike Babcock, whose contract is expiring, Boston’s Claude Julien and San Jose’s Todd McLellan. 
Babcock will be the most sought after coaching free agent when his deal expires at season's end, but his Detroit Red Wings are alive and well in the playoffs.
Julien remains head coach of the Boston Bruins for the time being, in the aftermath of Peter Chiarelli's dismissal.
McLellan's future as head coach of the San Jose Sharks could bedetermined before he joins the Canadian national team at the world championship later this month.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are searching for a new head coach and general manager as they attempt to restructure the organization after an April purge.

Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan has been granted permission to speak with Arizona Coyotes assistant GM and goaltending coach Sean Burke, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

The executive is an intriguing choice for Toronto, as he has both coaching and front-office experience, as well as the ability to revive the careers of goalies.

Burke, who played with Shanahan with the New Jersey Devils, was successful in helping change the games of goalies Mike Smith and Devan Dubnyk.

The Maple Leafs finished the 2014-15 season with the fourth-worst record in the league (30-44-8).

Haha, just came over to post this myself.

Is he still dating ESPN's Erin Andrews? If so, then that has to be a bit awkward for her. :D

I just sent Erin Andrews this tweet:

"@ErinAndrews Especially when blow & molly are involved.#JarrettStoll lol"


I'm gonna get myself in trouble one of these times, say if she actually took the time to read the tweet & gets pissed off enough that she wants to take it out on my hide. Lolz

Poor Erin, she can't catch a break. She deserves better than that douche, that is unless she was with him at the MGM Grand....

In case you were wondering why the Oilers are stuck in suckland.


"There's no better springboard to development than failure." - Craig MacTavish


MacTavish said this to the Edmonton media during the Oilers end of season news conference.

The Oilers winning the NHL Draft Lottery ( again ) is as big a farce as when the Knicks won the NBA Draft Lottery in 1985.

What pisses me off more is that this is the 3rd time in 4 years they have gotten the first overall pick. They wanted to curb tanking to prevent this crap yet the Oilers get another high level prospect again just like the Penguins did when they got Fleury Malkin and Crosby. Whats really ironic is how Pittsburgh got Crosby when their new arena was under construction. Guess who else has a new arena under construction.
