Kristopher Letang D PIT
Defenseman Kris Letang has reportedly turned down the Penguins most recent offer for a contract extension of $56 million over eight years.

tsn.ca
It remains to be seen whether Pittsburgh will continue to negotiate with their star blueliner or place him on the trade market. Much has been made of Letang's reported interest in Toronto as a landing spot, but that's far from a certainty considering he has no say in the matter and a number of teams would likely line up to acquire his services.
Calgary lands David Jones from Colorado 06-27-2013
David Jones RW CAL
The Calgary Flames have acquired David Jones and Shane O'Brien in exchange for Alex Tanguay and Cory Sarich.

TSN.ca
"We like the fact that Jones plays a north-south game, drives hard to the net, kills penalties and is a right hand shot," Calgary GM Jay Feaster said. Jones received a four-year, $16 million contract from Colorado prior to the 2013 season. He produced just three goals and nine points in 33 games this past campaign after hitting the 20-goal mark in his previous two years.

Rangers GM Glen Sather says a decision on Brad Richards' buyout is "coming shortly," according to Rogers Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

Mark Messier announced, via a statement, that he is leaving the New York Rangers organization.

Although some will perceive this as a reaction to the coaching decision, nothing could be further from the truth. I completely respect the decision that was made and for all the reasons it was made. I harbor no hard feelings toward Glen or the Rangers. This is a personal choice I am making to create a program in the New York area that will give our children more choices and opportunities in the future. I wish the Rangers nothing but the best in the future." We would like to wish him the best.

Roberto Luongo G FLA
Vancouver GM Mike Gillis said his focus will shift to trying to trade Roberto Luongo now that the team has John Tortorella in place as their new head coach.

Vancouver Sun
"We're going to try and accomplish that goal," Gillis said this week. "We'll see what happens." Vancouver will probably be very reluctant to buy him out because they feel he has some value in the trade market and they would like to restock their cupboard with picks and prospects. The Canucks may also already have two buyouts in mind, according to reports, in Keith Ballard and David Booth.
Jonathan Bernier ready for No. 1 battle 06-27-2013
Jonathan Bernier G TOR

Vincent Lecavalier would consider Detroit 06-27-2013
Vincent Lecavalier C PHI
Vincent Lecavalier is interested in playing for the Detroit Red Wings.

Detroit Free Press
"If you just think about the Detroit Red Wings, it's actually a team I grew up idolizing," he said. "Them and Montreal were my favorite teams. Ironically, Steve Yzerman was my favorite hockey player. The Wings need a new second-line center, as it looks like Valtteri Filppula will be heading to free agency, and Lecavalier added that, "It'd definitely be a place that I think I would consider, for sure." The Canadiens, Toronto, Vancouver and Chicago have also been rumored destinations for Lecavalier's services once he's officially bought out by Tampa Bay and he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Ryan Malone LW NYR
Evgeny Kuznetsov has one year left on his KHL contract and he intends to play for Washington in 2014-15.

CSN Washington
"He's finished the first year of a two-year deal," GM George McPhee said. "Maybe we'll see him after his season's over." Kuznetsov won't attend the team's development camp in July, but he's still considered to be the team's top prospect. He could end up playing for the Capitals as soon as late March in 2014, but that isn't certain.
Capitals could be active at 2013 draft 06-27-2013
Adam Oates C Edm
Washington GM George McPhee thinks there could be potential for moves at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

CSN Washington
"There may be more activity in this one than other drafts," McPhee said. "You would think that would be the case because some teams have cap issues and have to move some players. You would think there would be more of that activity. We'll see. I've talked to a lot of GMs recently, in the last three days, just trying to figure out what they want to do at the draft, what they want to do in general." He has made notable draft-day deals before when he acquired Troy Brouwer in 2011 and Mike Ribeiro in 2012. Washington might lose Ribeiro and/or Matt Hendricks to free agency, so they could look to fill those potential holes as well.

Marian Hossa RW CHI
Marian Hossa thinks his injured back may require surgery.

Chris Kuc on Twitter

Michal Handzus C CHI
Michal Handzus can hit unrestricted free agency next week, but he would like to be back with Chicago.

Chris Kuc on Twitter
"I love it here and want to stay," he said. Handzus posted just eight points in 39 games with the Blackhawks during the regular season and he had 11 points in 23 playoff matches. He spent time centering Chicago's second line over the course of the year, but if the team can find an upgrade then Handzus will probably be permitted to walk.

Bryan Bickell LW CHI
Pending unrestricted free agent Bryan Bickell wants to be back with Chicago next season.

Chris Kuc on Twitter
He said he would be willing to take a hometown discount to stay with the Blackhawks. Bickell also didn't rule out requiring surgery on his knee. He produced 23 points in 48 games during the regular season, but became a revelation in the playoffs with 17 points 23 outings.

Dave Bolland is reportedly available on the trade market.

Bob McKenzie on Twitter
According to insiders, Bob McKenzie and Pierre LeBrun, the Blackhawks are shopping Bolland. Bolland netted the game-winning goal in Game 6 to help Chicago win the Stanley Cup.

Tomas Kaberle D NJ

Simon Gagne LW BOS
The Philadelphia Flyers may look to re-sign Simon Gagne now that they have some much-needed cap space.

Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News
The team will use compliance buyouts on Ilya Bryzgalov and Daniel Briere, which should give them the funds to bring back Gagne. "He's a player we're interested in bringing back," GM Paul Holmgren said Tuesday. "We don't know what the number is, but it's something we'd like to entertain. We're juggling what we'd like to do on July 5, or whether we could get it done before that. But we'll talk to Simon and his agent at the draft and see." Gagne has also said that he's willing to take a pay cut to stay in Philadelphia.

Kristopher Letang D PIT

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
He made that known to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review early Thursday morning after reports circulated Wednesday night that he may have an interest in joining the Toronto Maple Leafs if he were unable to sign an extension with the Penguins. "I'm focused on the Penguins," Letang said. "I've never thought about playing anywhere else." GM Ray Shero has also not talked with the Leafs about a possible deal, but those rumors could pick up steam if negotiations turn sour.
Chris Kunitz lands 3-year extension from Pens 06-27-2013
Chris Kunitz LW PIT
The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed Chris Kunitz to a three-year, $11.55 million extension.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
He has one year left on his current deal and then he'll earn a $125,000 annual raise, with a $3.85 million cap hit. Kunitz enjoyed an excellent 2013 campaign with 22 goals and 52 points in 48 games.

Andrej Meszaros D BUF

Sean Couturier C PHI
Sean Couturier's name has come up in several rumors, but Flyers GM Paul Holmgren views the 20-year-old center as a nonstarter in trade talks.

Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News

Mike Bales G Ott
Philadelphia GM Paul Holmgren would like to move up from the No. 11 pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News
"I like where we're at," Holmgren said. "I think we're going to get a good player at 11, but if you can move higher ... If you get into the guys that you really like that you think are probably franchise players, you've probably got to get up to the top four." He said there's been plenty of conversation around the league and he believes there's potential for movement.
Ottawa parts ways with Louie Caporusso 06-27-2013
Louie Caporusso C OTT
Louie Caporusso will become an unrestricted free agent on July 5.

Ottawa Sun
The Ottawa Senators have decided not to extend a qualifying offer to him. Caporusso was chosen with the No. 90 overall pick in 2007, but he wasn't able to play consistently in the AHL with Binghamton. In 23 AHL games, he had six points and in 41 appearances with Elmira of the ECHL he recorded 45 points.

Stephane Da Costa C OTT
Stephane Da Costa was given a qualifying offer from Ottawa on Wednesday.

Adam Henrique C NJ

The Bergen Record
New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello said last week that the team wasn't close to re-signing Henrique. The Devils have some potential unrestricted free agents to take care of first, which is probably occupying their time at the moment.
Devils. Clarkson will carry talks into draft 06-27-2013
David Clarkson RW TOR
David Clarkson's agent, Pat Morris, expects to speak with New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello during the draft.

The Bergen Record
"I'm continuing my dialogue with Lou," Morris said. "We haven't gotten to economic specifics at all. It's Lou trying to say the team will be in good shape and David can eliminate that worry from his mindset. David is digesting that information and we'll go to the next phase if we can go to the next phase with it which is, hopefully, being able to listen to an economic position from New Jersey." The fact that they haven't talked about dollars yet could be concerning with free agency just a week away. Any snag in the negotiation process could lead to Clarkson testing the market as an unrestricted free agent.
Zubrus denies he has new deal with Devils 06-27-2013
Dainius Zubrus C NJ
Dainius Zubrus denied that his new contract is finalized, but it appears to be close according to a source of the Bergen Record.

The Bergen Record
According to the source, Zubrus has agreed to terms on a three-year contract for roughly $3 million per season. However, Zubrus said, "Nothing is finalized yet. It's not a done deal.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"So excited to be a part of this Blues' team for the next (four) years," tweeted Shattenkirk. "Grateful for the opportunity and happy to be back with the boys." Shattenkirk's contract could end up being regarded as a bit of a deal. At the age of 24, he's already looking like one of the better offensive defenseman in the NHL. He had 43 points in 2011-12 and another 23 points in 48 contests last season.
Tuukka Rask wants to be a long-term Bruin 06-27-2013
Tuukka Rask G BOS
Tuukka Rask would like to stay in Boston for the rest of his career and his new contract could reflect that.

Boston Globe
"That would be an ideal situation, I think to play here forever," Rask said. "I hope we can make that happen." The Bruins goaltender felt he had a "great year" while proving himself as a viable No. 1 after the departure of Tim Thomas. Rask played very well in the regular season and he flourished in the playoffs. GM Peter Chiarelli would like to get a deal as quickly as he can.
Bruins may bring back backup Anton Khudobin 06-27-2013
Anton Khudobin G CAR
The Bruins haven't ruled out bringing back backup goaltender Anton Khudobin.

Boston Globe
However, GM Peter Chiarelli has informed Khudobin that the team has to re-sign Tuukka Rask first. Khudobin can become an unrestricted free agent on July 5 and if he decides to go elsewhere then Niklas Svedberg may be the top candidate within Boston's system to replace him.
Ruff: Supporting Kari Lehtonen is the key 06-27-2013
Kari Lehtonen G DAL
Supporting Kari Lehtonen will be the key to getting the Dallas Stars to the next level, according to coach Lindy Ruff.

Dallas Morning News
"I think the goaltender (Kari Lehtonen) is at a time in his career where he can throw a team on his back and get you there, but we just have to support him better at some of the other areas on the ice so there are some good pieces," Ruff said. "There is some good young talent. There are some veterans that are some good quality veterans. It'll be making some decisions of putting some pieces in the right place to get us to where we want to go." Lehtonen had a 2.66 GAA and .916 save percentage in 36 games last season. If the Stars put a greater emphasis on supporting him, those numbers could obviously improve.
Tampa Bay will use buyout on Lecavalier 06-27-2013
Vincent Lecavalier C PHI
After a great deal of speculation, the Tampa Bay Lightning will use a compliance buyout on Vincent Lecavalier.

Lightning.nhl.com
"Vinny has been a significant reason for many of our past successes, including the 2004 Stanley Cup, and his contributions to the community are immeasurable," said GM Steve Yzerman in a statement. "The Lightning organization is indebted to Vinny; we thank him for all he has done here and we wish him well as he moves forward. After much internal deliberation, we believe this will prove to be a pivotal move for us as we strive to achieve our long term goal of competing at the highest level, year-in, year-out. The economics and structure of the CBA are necessitating this decision and we at the Lightning are excited at the newly created opportunities this presents to us." He had $45 million left over seven seasons on his 11-year, $85 million contract. The buyout will cost the Bolts $30 million over the next 14 years and Lecavalier will become an unrestricted free agent.
Ruff thinks Modano might be able to play 06-27-2013
Mike Modano C DET
Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff would be open to the idea of Mike Modano coming out of retirement to play for his team.

Dallas Morning News
"I think that's something you have to evaluate," Ruff said. "There is lots of examples of players in that category that have come back and played as long as the player in that category pays attention to his fitness level and has an elite level of conditioning, which I've seen players that get to that point. They can be effective players in today's game, and that's whether the legs underneath you can still carry you to the places you need to go on the ice." Modano is 43 and hasn't played since 2010-11, so a comeback seems very unlikely.
CBJ aren't gaining traction with Bobrovsky 06-27-2013
Sergei Bobrovsky G CLB
The Columbus Blue Jackets still haven't made significant progress in their efforts to sign Sergei Bobrovsky.

Columbus Dispatch
It's looking more and more like Bobrovsky will become a restricted free agent. Offer sheets from other NHL clubs aren't too big of a threat to the Blue Jackets given that they have the option to simply match them, but Bobrovsky leaving for the KHL is a very real possibility. He's being offered a big contract with SKA Saint Petersburg.
Patrick Kane goes on Letterman 06-27-2013
Patrick Kane RW CHI
Patrick Kane was interviewed by David Letterman on Wednesday.

Chicago Tribune
Kane spent a fair amount of time talking about the Stanley Cup itself. "It's unbelievable ... You know, we've been, you know, parading around Chicago the past couple nights, and wherever that thing is, people tend to want be there and to be around it," Kane said. "It's what we believe to be the coolest trophy in sports. It's, you know, unbelievable to look at. I mean, it feels like, you know, you're lifting 35 pounds, but it feels like nothing when you're lifting it, especially on the ice after winning." Chicago will hold a parade on Friday to celebrate the Blackhawks' Cup winning season.
Daniel Briere claims 15 teams are interested 06-27-2013
Daniel Briere C COL
While the precise level of interest is unclear, Daniel Briere indicates that he won't lack for suitors once the Philadelphia Flyers go through the buyout process.

Tim Panaccio on Twitter
He told CSNPhilly.com that as many as 15 teams have expressed interest in him. Not bad to attract half of the league's attention after an injury-plagued season rife with scoring disappointments.
Three-year deal likely for Dainius Zubrus 06-27-2013
Dainius Zubrus C NJ
While it's not official nor has it been signed yet, the word is that the New Jersey Devils have hammered out a three-year pact with forward Dainius Zubrus.

Tom Gulitti
The deal is expected to be for about $3 million per year. Zubrus is among the many concerns for GM Lou Lamoriello this summer, so the team hopes to get several potential headaches out of the way early.
