A Six-Year Contract For Andrew Shaw In Montreal
MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Monday that the team has agreed to terms on a six-year contract with forward Andrew Shaw. Acquired on Friday from the Chicago Blackhawks, Shaw scored 14 goals and registered 34 points in 78 games last season. He also was a standout during the playoffs, posting six points – including four goals – in six games. “We are very pleased to have agreed to a long-term deal with Andrew Shaw. As I mentio...

The Latest On The Colorado Avalanche
from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, The Avalanche will buy out veteran defenseman Brad Stuart and not replace him or recently traded defenseman Nick Holden with marquee free agent defensemen, general manager Joe Sakic said Monday. Because of Stuart’s age, 36, his buyout won’t provide salary-cap relief, leaving $3.6 million on the books. But the Avs will save $1.2 million in cash, according to GeneralFanager.com... Before trading Holden to the New York Rangers on Sa...

Ottawa Trades Alex Chiasson To Calgary
OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the club has acquired defenceman Patrick Sieloff from the Calgary Flames in exchange for forward Alex Chiasson. Sieloff, 22, made his National Hockey League debut with Calgary last season, playing one game. In his lone game, he scored the game-winning goal in the Flames’ 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on April 9. In 52 games with the American Hockey League’s Stockton Heat, he scored two goals, nine assists ...

The Changes At Sportsnet/Rogers Media
from Dave Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, Rogers Media cut a wide swath through its hockey broadcast personnel on Monday, dismissing at least six on-air personalities including Glenn Healy, who was the between-the-benches analyst on Hockey Night in Canada’s No. 1 crew. P.J. Stock, Billy Jaffe, Chantal Desjardins, Corey Hirsch and Leah Hextall are also gone in a housecleaning prompted by a disastrous miscue by Rogers’s upper management regarding Canadians’ appetite fo...

Nashville, Tenn. (June 27, 2016) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed forward Filip Forsberg to a six-year, $36 million contract. Forsberg will make $6 million each season from 2016-17 to 2021-22. “Filip is among the most skilled, dynamic talents we've ever had in the organization and is an integral part of our success for the next six years and beyond,” Poile said. “While we have al...

Top Free Agents
from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Here's a look at the top free agents who are available, as well as some notable players who could be on the move in the coming days and how the draft weekend might have impacted the marketplace. Kyle Okposo, New York Islanders I must admit, I continue to be baffled by the disinterest from the Islanders about locking up Okposo long term. But the powerful winger -- who has 25-goal, 70-point potential in the right setting -- will have no shortage of suit...

Looks like Fox Regional Networks Will Be Streaming In-Market NHL Games
via John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal, After five years of on-again, off-again negotiations, Fox Sports and the NHL finally have reached an agreement for in-market streaming, according to several industry sources. No contracts have been signed, but the two sides have agreed to allow Fox’s regional sports networks to.. The rest of of the story is paid subscription but you will probably get the idea...

Morning Line- Rick Morrissey On The Chicago Blackhawks
The Hawks were good enough to win the Stanley Cup last season. History will show that they lost in the first round to the Blues, but it won’t show that it took two posts to keep a Brent Seabrook shot from going into the net and tying Game 7. This is still a great team, and it still has Bowman running the show. More importantly, it still has Kane and Toews. Until otherwise notified, Chicago is a long way from being wiped off the map. -Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Sun-Times where ...

Brendan Shanahan’s plan for the Leafs in progress
From the Globe and Mail's James Mirtle: Two years after Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment made a controversial bet on Shanahan – who had never worked for an NHL team in any capacity – what he will say is that he feels the Leafs are ahead of where he expected them to be. He has a top coach in Mike Babcock, with a Stanley Cup and Olympic-gold pedigree. He has an experienced general manager in his 73-year-old mentor Lou Lamoriello, working on transactions. He has an up-a...

Islanders remain logistically disadvantaged
The New York Post's Larry Brooks discusses the potential fates of more than a few free agents in his Sunday night Slap Shots column, but his focus involves the New York Islanders, who may not be able to retain Frans Nielsen, Kyle Okposo, Matt Martin, or, Brooks fears, many free agents going forward: What’s even worse for the Islanders — who may also lose fourth-line crusher Matt Martin to free agency — is the constant echo reverberating throughout the industry that the ...

Ray Bourque Statement
via Celebrity Marketing Inc, “For the first time in my life, I find myself in unfamiliar territory. I am not happy about the situation I put myself into on Friday Night. I am a very proud person that accepts the responsibility of my actions and have always accepted being in the media eye. I have used this popularity to try and positively impact as many lives as possible. I am happy that no one was hurt in the accident and thank everyone who has reached out in support of my family a...

Hockey Hall Of Fame Class Of 2016 Will Be Announced On Monday, Who Gets In?
from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun, Eric Lindros and the late Pat Quinn share one dubious distinction when it comes to their respective illustrious careers: Neither won an NHL championship. Of course, the last time we checked, the sport’s most sacred institution is not called the Stanley Cup Hall of Fame. It’s the Hockey Hall of Fame and, because of that, it says here both men are worthy of induction when the Class of 2016 is announced on Monday. Since becoming e...

Afternoon Line- Don Cherry On The Toronto Maple Leafs
Steven Stamkos will be a Leaf if the Leafs break the bank for him. 11 or 12 million say and Steven will be even better in Toronto than he was in Tampa believe it or not because everyone knows Ontario boys play better in Ontario than other players because of friends and family so says coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs Mike Babcock and so says American GM Brian Burke when he was with Toronto. That’s why Toronto went out and drafted in the first 3 rounds, a Russian, a Swede and 3 Americ...

Morning Line- Mike Brophy
Take solace Canada, you are still a world power – unquestionably the team to beat at the World Cup. Canada’s men’s and women’s teams have won gold in the past two Olympic Games. Crosby was named most valuable player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and goaltender Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goalie, an award that likely would have gone to fellow Canadian Carey Price had he not missed most of the season with an injury...

Alexander Radulov Back To The KHL

Hockey Is Dying
from John Doyle of the Globe and Mail, One recent Sunday evening I went out for a pint. In a neighbourhood bar I watched the Pittsburgh Penguins win the Stanley Cup. I was a bit surprised to be witnessing this – I had no idea that the darn thing was still going on. Thing is, in this reasonably crowded downtown Toronto bar, filled with twentysomethings and TV screens, there was me and one other guy paying attention to the hockey on TV. That’s it – two of us. Hockey i...

Chuck Fletcher Working On Improving His Team
from Michael Russo of the StarTribune, The Wild has had trade talks with the Edmonton Oilers about center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, although all Oilers skilled forwards not named Connor McDavid are also said to be in play. The Oilers appear to want right-shot Matt Dumba and other pieces, including next year’s second-rounder. The problem is the Wild no longer owns that pick. Fletcher, after trading scores of second-round picks since 2013 and seeing second-rounders Brett Bulmer and Ra...

There’s An App For That In Las Vegas
via John Katsilometes of the Las Vegas Sun, The wagering opportunities for NHL games at T-Mobile Arena once the Las Vegas franchise begins play in 2017 have been specified. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman commented about wagering on the team during Thursday’s formal announcement that the league’s Board of Governors had unanimously approved an expansion team for Las Vegas. Bettman said NHL games were not as “susceptible” to wagering as NFL or NBA games. Which mea...

Brian Elliottt Is The #1 Goalie In Calgary
from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun, In St. Louis, it was coach Ken Hitchcock who saw Jaroslav Halak, Ryan Miller and then 25-year-old Jake Allen as Elliott's superior or equal, preventing him from taking over a starting job finally waiting for him in Calgary. "He's had to fight for the net in St. Louis because management has always felt there's a goaltender there that's his equal," said Flames hockey president Brian Burke. "That's certainly not the situation with us."... Be...

Status Quo For The Columbus Blue Jackets
from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, Doug MacLean could not get the Blue Jackets off the starting line. Scott Howson pushed it forward and then stalled. Enter Jarmo Kekalainen, the team’s third general manager in 16 years, who was billed as a workaholic with a keen eye for talent. Surely he would drive the franchise to a level above abject mediocrity. Given the Jackets’ history, even commendable mediocrity would be an improvement. To push the analogy toward th...

Off-Season For The New York Rangers Starts Slowly
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, The work necessary to maintain the Rangers’ five-year run as an upper-echelon team will continue following this NHL Entry Draft weekend, over which general manager Jeff Gorton was unable to get much accomplished. “I think we have things to do to get us where we want to go,” Gorton said Saturday. “We’re in a spot where we’re trying to get better, trying to make deals to get better. We’ve been in a lot of...

Ray Bourque arrested for DUI
From the Associated Press: Former Boston Bruins star Ray Bourque has been arrested on a drunken driving charge. Andover Police Chief Patrick Keefe says the 55-year-old Bourque was arrested about 11:30 p.m. Friday after his Mercedes-Benz rear-ended a minivan in a construction zone in the city. No injuries were reported. Bourque, of Boxford, was charged with operating under the influence of alcohol and following too closely. He posted bail and was released. He is to be arraigned in...
