Report: Gary Roberts Waives No-Trade Clause

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Bob McKenzie at TSN reports,

Sources tell TSN that Florida Panthers’ forward Gary Roberts has waived his no-trade clause, paving the way for the Panthers and Pittsburgh Penguins to consummate a conditional deal that they agreed to on Monday.
The deal is not expected to be made official until Tuesday morning because Roberts must physically sign the no-trade waiver before the two teams can make it official.
If there are no issues, Pittsburgh will send defenceman Noah Welch to Florida and Roberts will join the Penguins for the stretch drive and playoffs. Roberts is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.

added by Paul at 7:42am on 2/27/07, from the Pittsburgh Post-Gaxette,

Gary Roberts is joining the Penguins.
Or at least he will be after formally signing away the no-trade clause in his contract this morning.
Roberts, a 40-year-old left winger with the Florida Panthers, previously had contended that he would accept a trade only to Toronto or Ottawa, but was persuaded to come to Pittsburgh.
Team officials learned early today that the deal will go through.

Calder for Williams. Like it?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

By now you know Kenny Holland has made his first move of the final 24, moving Jason Williams to Chicago, getting Kyle Calder from Philly in the process.  I need a bit to digest this one, so I’ll have something more later tonite.  I do think this is the tip of the Holland iceberg though.  I think at least one more deal’s in store, of a bigger variety.

Working His Way Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Every time Paul Jerrard passes a mirror, this is what he sees: a father, a hockey player, a coach, a man with a goal, a dream.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
What Paul Jerrard does not necessarily see is a pioneer or a role model or a symbol of racial equality, although he is, in many ways, all of those things….
In a year that saw two black coaches lead their respective teams to the Super Bowl, Jerrard happily toils in relative obscurity in the heartland, one step below the bigs in the American Hockey League.
He likes it that way.

added 8:17pm, TSN link…

added 9:09pm, from the Chicago Blackhawks,

“We’ve been trying to acquire Jason Williams since last summer,” said Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon. “He is a quality individual who can add to our team offensively and can also play the point on the power play. We feel with his speed and skill he is another piece of the puzzle as we continue to move forward in making our team better.”
“I’m definitely excited about coming to Chicago,” said Williams. “Any time you can be a part of an original six team it’s special. Chicago is making strides in the right direction. I’m looking forward to coming to Chicago and in being a major factor on the team. I’m happy to be going to a team that wants me and I’m looking forward to helping the Blackhawks.”

Official- Rob Blake Talks About NTC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

Reports surfaced over the weekend that he had agreed to waive his no-trade clause. But the 37-year-old star defenceman said nothing could be further from the truth. He cemented his future with the Kings after a pair of meetings with GM Dean Lombardi over the weekend.
“Dean and I simply talked about the future of our team, the same thing we did last July when I signed,” Blake told The Canadian Press on Monday. “Nothing really has changed. I don’t know where all that stuff (inaccurate reports) had come from.”

Update On Smyth

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

The Oilers talked with Toronto-based agent Don Meehan again Monday about a new multiyear contract for the veteran left-winger, who is believed to be seeking at least US$5 million a season over a five-year term.
“We’re still talking,” Howson said. “Everything has been very cordial and open.
“We’re continuing to have what we consider productive talks. We’re hopeful we’re going to come to an agreement and get a contract done, but there’s nothing to report as of now.”

Talking Todd

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Bertuzzi is the sort of player who might change teams five minutes before the deadline, if a club that came up short on one trade front decides on him as a fallback position. The other issue – which cannot be trivialized – is his salary-cap hit. Since Bertuzzzi earns $5.269 million per season, even the pro-rated value of his contract would require a team to have about $1.1 million in salary-cap space in order to fit him into their payroll.
