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.

Clowe also has concussion issues while in NY.

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






Iginla looked really slow and old in the playoffs last year.

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres continued to revamp their defense by reacquiring Henrik Tallinder from the New Jersey Devils for prospect Riley Boychuk.



Tallinder spent the last three years with the Devils after spending parts of eight seasons with the Sabres. He entered the NHL as a second-round draft pick of the Sabres in 1997.

Tallinder, 34, played in just 25 games last year, posting one goal and three assists. He was a stalwart on the back end during Buffalo's playoff runs in 2006 and 2007 and became an on-ice mentor to Tyler Myers in 2009. Myers, 23, has struggled without Tallinder as a defensive partner.

"We are excited to have Henrik back in the mix on our blue line," Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said in a statement. "His experience will be invaluable not only in adding more stability to our back end, but also in the development of some of our younger defensemen."

Boychuk was a seventh-round pick of Buffalo in 2010.

The Sabres have focused on defense in recent days, re-signing Alexander Sulzer to a one-year contract and signing Drew Bagnall to a two-way contract Saturday. Buffalo also selected two defensemen in the first round of the draft, Rasmus Ristolainen and Nikita Zadorov, and acquired former Carolina defenseman Jamie McBain in a trade during the draft for defenseman Andrej Sekera.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks have signed left wing Matt Beleskey to a two-year contract extension through 2014-15.

He had eight goals, five assists and 56 penalty minutes in 42 games with Anaheim last season. The 25-year-old winger led the club in hits with 103 and was tied for seventh in goals.

He was selected in the fourth round of the 2006 NHL entry draft by the Ducks, and has 26 goals, 30 assists and 199 penalty minutes in 209 career games with them.

The Detroit Red Wings went looking for a new second-line centre, and found one that has played as a number one quite a bit in recent seasons.

Numbers Game breaks down the Red Wings adding Stephen Weiss.

The Red Wings Get: C Stephen Weiss.

Weiss, 30, is a reliable two-way centre who is coming off a disastrous season in which he was minus-13 in 17 games, scoring only four points, but his season was shortened by wrist surgery. Considering Weiss' production in previous seasons -- between 49 and 61 points in each of the previous four seasons -- there is a temptation to write off 2013 as an anomalous lost season due to injury.

In Detroit, Weiss fits into the second-line centre spot, a role that seems more natural to his skill set. While he had some productive seasons (back-to-back seasons with at least 60 points in 2008-2009 and 2009-2010) as the number one centre in Florida, Weiss shouldn't be expected to be a top scorer on a playoff team.

Initial indications are that the Red Wings will be putting Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk on the Wings' number one line, perhaps with newly-signed Daniel Alfredsson, which would still leave some quality wing options for Weiss, including Johan Franzen, Gustav Nyquist or Todd Bertuzzi.

Even if he has strong linemates, it's going to be difficult for Weiss to produce like he did in his peak with Florida because there aren't a lot of second-line centres getting 20 minutes of ice time per game. A reasonable expectation might be somwhere around 45 points, lower than his best years in Florida, but Weiss is in his 30s, coming off injury and likely to play fewer minutes.

Florida could have really used Weiss, because they don't have much proven talent down the middle. 2013 first-round pick Aleksander Barkov, Shawn Matthias and Marcel Goc are at the top of the Panthers' centre depth chart, so Weiss' departure will mean more quality ice time available to them. At least Weiss' absence from the lineup last season helped the Panthers make some adjustments at the position, so this change isn't going to be abrupt.

Signed for five years and $24.5-million, Weiss will be well-compensated and it's possible that, by the end of it, he may not be providing ideal value, but so long as there aren't lingering effects from last year's wrist injury, Weiss should be a fine addition for the Red Wings. He's a year older than Valtteri Filppula, whom he effectively replaces in the Red Wings' lineup, but Weiss should be more consistently productive.

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks have signed left wing Pascal Pelletier, the club announced Sunday.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound forward has played in 13 career NHL games with the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins.

He's played in 357 career AHL games, collected 283 points and 277 penalty minutes.

The Edmonton Oilers agreed to terms on a one-year contract with forward Ryan Jones on Saturday.

The unrestricted free agent will return to Edmonton for a fourth season.

Writing on his Twitter account, Jones said, "Excited to get to wear the Oil drop for another year. Hoping to prove the doubters wrong and help this team return to the "glory days!"

The 29-year-old was limited to 27 games with the Oilers last year after he missed 16 games with an eye injury. He has two goals and five assists.

Jones came to the Oilers off waivers from the Nashville Predators late in the 2009-10 season. In 282 NHL contests, Jones has 52 goals and 42 assists.

He had a breakout season in 2010-11 when he counted 17 goals and 16 assists in 79 games.

Jones was a fourth-round draft pick of the Minnesota Wild in 2004.

Bad news for the Jets.




from tsn.ca:

Scratch one restricted free agent off the Winnipeg Jets' negotiation list. Alexander Burmistrov has parted company with the NHL, at least for now.

Burmistrov, who fell out of favour with coach Claude Noel for a time last season, has signed a two-year deal with Ak Bars Kazan of Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.

"Through our conversations and correspondence with Alex and his agent, it became apparent Alex had a desire to continue his development as a young player in the KHL," Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said in a brief statement Monday.

"He remains a very talented player within the Jets organization and we will continue to monitor his progress and development going forward."

The Jets retain his NHL rights. He was earning $1.5 million a year and was one of 13 players on the list of restricted free agents the Jets have been negotiating with in recent weeks.

The 21-year-old centre had just four goals and six assists in 44 games last season, after spending the lockout with the Jets farm team in St. John's, N.L., where he had two goals and nine assists in 22 games.

He also spent time riding the Jets' bench last season, perhaps because Noel wasn't happy with his slow adoption of the more north-south style of play he was encouraging. The coach kept his reasons to himself.

Burmistrov is a native of Kazan, Russia, and played one game for Ak Bars in 2008-09, before leaving to join the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League.

He didn't get long in the OHL to develop his skills. The Atlanta Thrashers made Burmistrov the No. 8 pick in the 2010 NHL entry draft and inserted him into their lineup the next season.

More than a point-a-game player in the OHL, Burmistrov never had more than 28 points in an NHL season.

The way Burmistrov was handled is in sharp contrast to the way current Jets management have handled centre Mark Scheifele. He was the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft, but after watching him in action the Jets opted to leave him with the Colts.

In 2011-12 he had 23 goals and 40 assists for Barrie plus another 12 points in the post season.

He upped than in 2012-13 when he had 39 goals and 40 assists in the regular season and another 41 points in the post season, as he led the Colts to within one game of qualifying for the Memorial Cup.

With Sheifele out with an injury for that final game, the Colts ended up losing Game 7 of the OHL final 3-2 to the London Knights. Scheifele, now 20, is expected to crack the Jets lineup this season.

If Perron can stay healthy then this is a very good deal for Edmonton. I'm guessing St. Louis did this for mostly salary cap reasons as they still need to re-sign Alex Pietrangelo to a new deal.

Calgary re-signs Backlund: two years, $3 million

Mike Halford

Jul 10, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

The Calgary Flames have agreed to terms with RFA center Mikael Backlund on a two-year, $3 million deal, the club announced on Wednesday.

The deal has an average annual cap hit of $1.5 million, up from the $725,000 he made on his last contract.

“Mikael really stepped-up last season and took advantage of the change in direction under a new coaching staff,” Flames GM Jay Feaster said in a statement. “He came into camp in very good shape and also had regained his confidence. He parlayed that into a strong season, and if it wasn’t for his injury we believe he would have progressed even further in his development.”

Backlund, Calgary’s first-round pick (24th overall) at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, had 16 points in 32 games last year, missing time with an MCL sprain.

The Flames have a major lack of depth at center heading into 2013-14, and are hopeful Backlund can fill the gap — but they were also hopeful last year, when they pushed the Swedish forward to “believe in himself.”

Calgary has shown plenty of patience with Backlund through his first four years of professional hockey, but now sounds ready for him to take the next step.

“We need Mikael to be one of our go-to players this year,” Feaster said. “We are excited about watching him continue to evolve and take that step to the next level as a player.”
