    Default NHL Season 2013 - idiots killed the 2012 part

    Let the daily Rick Nash rumors begin..........


    Expecting a quiet off-season from the Bruins. They're pretty set with the roster they've got. Looks like Tuuka Rask will be the man in the pipes this year now that Thomas has gone AWOL.

    The Wings have a boatload of cap space. I think priority 1 for them is Suter with Parise close second.

    It'll be interesting to see how they look next year without Lidstrom.

    Yup. If Suter and Parise don't work out I think they'll get Wideman and Semin. However, I DO think they'll get at least either Suter or Parise. They could use a gritty 4th liner too, I believe Brandon Prust and Jarret Stoll were on their list.

    No clue what my Flyers are set to do this off-season. They have a few RFA's that they'll bring back most likely. I don't get the feeling that they're looking to make a big splash in the UFA market, but they need a dman or two in the worst way. More size down the middle would be nice as well, unless the plan on moving Briere to the wing.

    Obviously a goaltender may be on their wish list as well.

    Looking more and more like NASH will end up with the NY Rangers. Rangers were the closest to acquiring Nash at the trade deadline last season. NYR also have the young players to deal + they are on Nash's list of approved trade teams.

    NYR GM Glen Sather may also be looking at the LA Kings "GO FOR IT and win now approach". Make a big deal to go for the Cup.

    ++++

    Top FREE AGENTS are Zack Parise & Ryan Suter. Where they sign will be a big deal.

    ++

    Also don't forget that Roberto Loungo is still on the trade block.

    NHL plans to take Devils from owner Vanderbeek


    By JOSH KOSMAN


    NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman is preparing to take control of the money-losing hockey franchise in the event Vanderbeek fails to refinance the Devils’ debt before a looming Aug. 14 deadline, The Post has learned.

    In recent days, the commissioner’s office has told potential suitors to be ready in case he moves on the team and pushes Vanderbeek aside, a source close to the situation said.

    Vanderbeek is near a deal to sell a majority stake to a mystery investor, which would allow him to keep control of the Eastern Conference champions, one source said. The proceeds from a sale would be used to repay lenders much of the $77 million in past due debt.

    But while Bettman has said publicly that he expects the Devils’ financial situation to be resolved soon, his behind-the-scenes moves suggest he’s far from confident that a deal will get done.

    His skepticism shouldn’t come as a surprise. Since the Devils missed a principal payment in September, Vanderbeek has said several times he was close to a solution to the team’s debt woes, only to come up short.

    When the team made it to Stanley Cup finals this spring, the team’s lenders agreed to extend the deadline for when they could put the team in default from early July to August, sources said.

    Asked about the Devils before Game 1 of the finals last month, Bettman said Vanderbeek “is working to both refinance the debt on the club and equity-raise, and he appears to be fairly confident that he can pull this off in the next few weeks.”

    Bettman added, “Since I’ve been in touch with the banks on a regular basis, we seem to be on track.”

    The commissioner is expected to give Vanderbeek a few more weeks to complete a financial restructuring but will not wait until the Aug. 14 deadline passes, sources said.

    The NHL would likely force him out sooner to give suitors enough time to study the team’s financials and make an offer to lenders before the bankruptcy deadline, according to sources.

    Moreover, new investors may not want to buy the team and leave Vanderbeek in charge, sources added.

    Faced with losing control of the team, Vanderbeek could also decide to put the Devils into bankruptcy and buy himself several months to arrange a restructuring plan.

    Thanks to their success on ice this year, when the team staged an upset win over the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Championships, the Devils could go from losing $20 million in the regular season to almost breaking even next year, sources said.

    The Devils declined to comment, while the NHL did not return calls.

    Also one more STANLEY CUP celebration pic.

    Looks like the LA Kings took the Stanley Cup to LAS VEGAS to party.

    I believe they may want to move Sergei Bobrovsky in favor of a veteran player to push Bryz.

    Oh. Gotcha. Because they're saddled with Bryz whether they like it or not thanks to that brain fart they had giving him that insane deal.

    Looking at his numbers he actually had a solid season, despite being wildly inconsistent in his play. The team MUST play better in front of the goaltender. I'd advise the Flyers to pay attention to teams like Rangers, Bruins and Devils for example. Those teams take that kinda play very seriously. Laviolette is cool and all, but the defensive scheme needs work without Pronger.

    Welp, looks like the one player that did catch my eye on the FA list is deciding to stay put.

    Defenceman Barret Jackman won't be testing the free agent market in July after all.

    The St. Louis Blues announced on Monday that the defenceman has signed a three-year contract. While the club did not release terms of the deal, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that contract has a total value of $9.5 million.

    "Barret has been a solid leader for our club, on and off the ice, and we're happy to have him in the fold for the next three years," Blues executive vice president and general manager Doug Armstrong said in a statement. "He's a staple of the organization and the community and his positive influence on our young core has and will remain an invaluable asset."

    "St. Louis is our home and my family and I are excited to be staying," said Jackman. "I am proud of the progress we made this season but our fans deserve a championship and our team will not be satisfied until we achieve that goal."

    Jackman, 31, dressed in 81 games for the Blues last season recording 13 points (one goal, 12 assists) and 57 penalty minutes while tying for second on the club with a +20 rating.

    Ah, the New York Post, the newspaper that specializes in printing doom-and-gloom articles. I wouldn't put too much stock in that piece. I think the NYP must have it written in its handbook that it must publish a disparaging piece like that at least once or twice a month. They know that's the best way to get Devils fans to read their rag. Notice how the article covers its ass on both sides. That way, whatever happens, they can claim they weren't wrong. Tabloid journalism at its finest.

    Doom and gloom would be perfect actually. Hopefully the Devils get sold and the new owner can move you and your buddy Marty Brodeur away from me!!
