Now What Montreal?
Hockey news is slow this time of year and I hate to concentrate on one topic, but this is a good read... from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, The Canadiens realize now that Subban wants more than they would like to offer. They have a value, he believes he has a higher value -- and is probably right when it comes to the open market. Is it because they want him to take a discount? Or, is it because they still have doubts about his game? Whatever the case, they now know this is going to cost th...

How Long Before We See This Technology In The NHL?
from Ellen Jean Hirst of the Chicago Tribune, Beginning with the NFL's regular season, players will be equipped with tracking technology in their shoulder pads measuring how fast, far and what routes they run – in real time. How far did that player actually run to gain 4 yards? How fast? When, exactly, did he start running out of steam? This NFL regular season, players will be equipped with tracking technology in their shoulder pads that will tell broadcasters and fans, in ...

Paying Torey Krug And Reilly Smith
from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, All is quiet with Torey Krug and the Boston Bruins. That’s probably exactly the way the Boston front office has mapped it out. Due to the interesting circumstances behind their first pro contracts, neither Krug nor Reilly Smith have full restricted free-agent rights; instead, they're entry-level restricted free agents. Both Krug and Smith got that designation after burning the first year of their entry-level deals coming out of the NCAA, and currentl...

Afternoon Line
thought on Subban / all teams cherish top end Dman,you have a player seemingly growing in stature by the year, why wouldn't you lock him up? — Ray Ferraro (@rayferrarotsn) August 1, 2014

Anaheim Ducks Announce “Teemu Tribute Night”
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club will host “Teemu Tribute Night” on Jan. 11, 2015 vs. Winnipeg (5 p.m.) at Honda Center. The special evening will include the raising of Selanne’s #8 jersey to the rafters at Honda Center. Full details will be made available at a later date.  “Teemu is our franchise icon and deserves to be the first player in club history to have his jersey retired,” said Du...

P.K. Subban Hearing Is Over
Numerous reports the Subban arbitration hearing is over. I will update this post as needed.

All Ben Lovejoy
from Kyle Shohara at the Anaheim Ducks website, The Ducks made several offseason moves, including the acquisition of Ryan Kesler from Vancouver. What were your thoughts when you heard the news? I think that everybody’s thought on the team was that the Ducks are all in. We were absolutely disappointed with how last season ended. Bob Murray went out and got the best player he possibly could, a move that will absolutely make us a better team. This puts pressure on the players. Thi...

P.K. Subban Arbitration Was Scheduled To Start At 9:00am
By all indications, there has not been any agreement at this point.   Negotiated settlement between PK/MTL can occur any time before arb ruling (within 48 hrs of hearing) handed down. Otherwise, it's arb award. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) August 1, 2014 added 9:38am,   Still not clear if the Subban arbitration went ahead as scheduled. Participants arrived at 8:30 and have been in a room together since 9. — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris...

Have I Got A Deal For You
from Robert E. Kesler of Newsday, The former owner of a Great Neck automobile dealership was sentenced to 4 years in prison Thursday for running a $10 million fraud that tricked customers -- including two former New York Islanders -- into believing they were getting good deals on purchases, officials said. Rick Cohen, 51, of Syosset, was also ordered to make restitution and serve 5 years of supervised release at his sentencing in federal court in Central Islip before U.S. District Ju...

Steve Mason Recently Broke A Pinky Finger
via the Philadelphia Flyers, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall gave the following injury update on goaltender Steve Mason "Steve Mason broke his right pinky finger playing hockey in Oakville, Ontario on Sunday, July 27. Mason will miss approximately two (2) weeks of on-ice training but will continue with his off-ice training."

Shawn Thornton Excited To Be Playing For The Florida Panthers
from Alain Poupart at NHL.com,  Shawn Thornton first got to know Dale Tallon more than a decade ago. Now that the two have been reunited with the Florida Panthers, the veteran forward knows exactly what his new general manager expects from him. "At this point, I know my role and the job fairly well," Thornton told South Florida media members Thursday. "Dale didn't need to stress it too much to me. We've known each other for a long time and I think he knows how self-aware I am,...

The Dallas Stars Are Getting Closer To Becoming Profitable
from Alex Silverman of SportsBusiness Daily, The Stars took a significant step forward in ’13-14, making the playoffs for the first time since Owner Tom Gaglardi bought the team out of bankruptcy in ’11. The team followed up that milestone by adding veteran scorers Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky to its young core. With the hope that the team will carry its on-ice momentum into ’14-15, the front office, led by President & CEO Jim Lites, is working to put the team&r...

Nick Spaling Settles On A Two-Year Deal With The Pittsburgh Penguins
via the Pittsburgh Penguins, The Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with forward Nick Spaling, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford. The deal runs through the 2015-16 campaign and has an average annual value of $2.2 million. Spaling, 25, was acquired by the Penguins from the Nashville Predators along with Patric Hornqvist on June 28. Spaling is coming off a career year this past season, recording 13 goals, 19...

Perhaps A Short-Term Deal For P.K. Subban?
from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, There are rumours the two sides are having all sorts of trouble reaching a long-term deal, and Meehan didn't throw cold water on that theory in his radio interview. Maybe the solution is a shorter deal that gives both sides another shot at this when Subban is 29 or 30, still in prime earning years for a defenceman. While Meehan added that Subban hasn't "instructed us to attend to" making Subban the NHL's highest-paid blue-liner (Weber's $7.8M average an...

Three-Year Contract For Robin Lehner In Ottawa
OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today that the club has agreed to terms with goaltender Robin Lehner on a three-year contract. Lehner, 23, set a new career high in playing 36 National Hockey League games last season while establishing a new personal best in victories with a record of 12-15-6. He also set a personal and franchise high with 53 saves in a 5-4 shootout setback to the N.Y. Islanders on Nov. 1, and then became the first goaltender in franchise hist...

UFAs Jeff Halpern And Paul Bissonnette Waiting For A Phone Call
from Sarah McLellan of the ARizona Republic, Halpern was issued the same clue when the Coyotes signed depth center Joe Vitale earlier this month, but the 38-year-old isn't closing the door on his NHL career. When he was younger, Halpern's criteria in free agency included playing for a contender, setting his family up financially and playing where he lived. "My views on free agency now, personally, are completely different," he said. "I basically wait for a phone call and then if some...

Evening Line
"Marty and I have come to an agreement that is best for both himself and the organization, and there's nothing negative about that. Marty knows what it is to be a No. 1 goalie and to have that feeling, and that's what he wants. Cory (Schneider) feels the same way. "I think it's time to move forward, but never negate what Marty has brought [to the Devils], nor was the door ever shut. It was a mutual understanding of what was best for both parties. Marty will always be a Devil and the commu...

Time To Pay Subban
from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, Now it’s time for Montreal to forgo the gamesmanship and pay. Because of the aforementioned tough-love approach the coaching staff has taken with Subban at times and because his last negotiation resulted in a brief holdout before a team-friendly, two-year deal was signed, there’s always a seed of doubt when assessing No. 76’s future in Montreal. That no deal has been struck yet makes speculation easier to spread, though Habs GM Marc...

Long-Term Extension For Andy Greene In New Jersey
from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice, The Devils have signed defenseman Andy Greene to a "long-term" contract extension, team president and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced during a media conference call this afternoon. Terms of the contract were not released. Greene, who will turn 32 on Oct. 30, is entering the final season of a four-year contract that pays $3.5 million in 2014-15 ($3 million salary cap hit). He would have been eligible to become an unrestricted free agent...

Trevor Linden On Fighting
from Thomas Drance at The Score, On Tuesday afternoon, Linden co-hosted the mid-day show on Team 1040 sports talk radio in Vancouver for two hours alongside regular host Matt Sekeres. During the show, Linden was asked about his stance on fighting in hockey and responded thoughtfully and at length. Here's are his comments via Dimitri Filipovic of canucksarmy.com (full disclosure, I am a contributor at canucksarmy.com): I think that our game is such a great one. It's built around speed...

The Montreal Canadiens Have Hired Rob Ramage As Player Development Coach
MONTRÉAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin, announced Wednesday the appointment of Rob Ramage as player development coach with the Club. “We welcome Rob Ramage as part of our hockey personnel. Rob is a dedicated and competent hockey person who will contribute to our player development group. Our entire organization, and particularly our young defensemen will benefit from his experience and his knowledge”, said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin.

Morning Line
My own problems with Yzerman started as a result of him mistreating my teammates. He was abusive to linesmen, and it made my protective instincts kick in and tell him off in no uncertain terms. The spark was lit after he belittled and verbally abused longtime linesman Mark Pare on an icing call in Detroit. It went way beyond simply yelling about a blown call. He treated Mark and other officials like they didn't even belong on the same ice as he did. My next run-in with Yzerman came as a r...

Dwight King Settles For A Three-Year Deal With The Los Angeles Kings
His scheduled arbitration date was this Friday.   LA and Dwight King also settled beforehand, on a three-year deal. — Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) July 30, 2014

P.K. Subban Asking For $8.5M In Arbitration
P.K. Subban seeking $8.5 million in arbitration and the Canadiens are seeking $5.25 million on a one-year deal. — Ken Campbell (@THNKenCampbell) July 30, 2014   Habs elected for one-year award for Subban because they can take him to arb next summer. Also can negotiate new deal earlier on one year. — Ken Campbell (@THNKenCampbell) July 30, 2014

Scott Hartnell A Great Fit In Columbus
from Bob Hunter of the Columbus Dispatch, Hartnell is happy to be here only because he believes the Blue Jackets have a chance to be good for several years, and he sees himself playing a key role in that. That starts with beating a Pittsburgh team that knocked the Jackets out of the playoffs. “The Pens are not my favorite team, probably by far,” he said. “I think they’re only a couple hours drive from Columbus, so I’m excited to stir that pot a little bi...

Brad Marchand On Tomas Plekanec
from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec isn’t very well-liked or well-respected within the B’s dressing room, and a national hockey audience got a taste of why when he repeatedly snapped his head back in embellishment during phantom high stick encounters against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals. The blatant play-acting even spawned the hash tag #Plekanecing on twitter where fans snapped selfies in mock pain and head-snapping embellishm...

Chad LaRose returns, signs an AHL deal with Carolina Hurricanes’ affiliate
This isn't blockbuster news, but Chad LaRose basically disappeared off the hockey map for a year (kind of like what Ian White's done now), and this evening, it appears that LaRose is going to attempt to make an NHL comeback the old-fashioned way, via an AHL deal with the Hurricanes' developmental affiliate. Per the Charlotte Checkers: The Charlotte Checkers have signed former Hurricanes right wing Chad LaRose to an AHL deal. LaRose, 32, spent parts of three seasons in the ECHL and AHL be...
