Kypreos: Maple Leafs still trying to move Dion Phaneuf

I'll let you take this interview breakdown from Sportsnet's Jeff Simmons for what you will:

According to Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos, the Maple Leafs are trying “real hard” to move captain Dion Phaneuf.

“It’s abundantly clear that he won’t be the captain next year,” Kypreos said Sunday on Sportsnet 590 The Fan. “So the sooner they can get him out, the better. They’re trying real hard to make that deal going into (Monday).

“It’s a gut feel, but I think (by) this time (Monday), Phaneuf is a member of another hockey club.”

Kyrpeos added Phaneuf appeals to a handful of teams in need of an upgrade on the back end, but the Leafs will have to retain part of his salary in order to make any trade work.

“It’s a matter of that contract,” Kypreos explained. “As soon as there’s a number that can be agreed upon, he will not be a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.”

Phaneuf signed a seven-year, $49 million contract extension during the 2013-14 season. He will become an unrestricted free agent after the 2020-21 season.

A Players Only Lunch In San Jose

from David Pollak of the Mercury News,

Call it a players-only meeting or players-only lunch, but the guys who wear the uniform decided Sunday that what the Sharks needed most was time together on their own.

One day before the NHL trade deadline and reeling after on 0-6-2 record on home ice for February, the Sharks asked coach Todd McLellan if they could forsake their scheduled practice for a chance to air things out privately.

"We spoke last night and a couple players wanted a day where they could gather and get the group together," Mclellan said. "We came in, we did some gym work, we did some freshening up of legs and that type of stuff, and now they're going on their own and they're going to go deal with some things. It's a good thing."

Patrick Sharp On The Rumors Of Problems In The Chicago Blackhawks’ Dressing Room

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,

It was an emotional Patrick Sharp who stood in the dressing room of the Chicago Blackhawks' practice facility and spoke of the toll that rumors on the Internet have taken on him and his family.

"It’s been tough," Sharp said Sunday at Johnny's IceHouse West. "As a hockey player, as a professional, you’re out there and you’re up for grabs for on-ice play. I’m OK with that. Trade rumors, talk about my play on the ice — I’m fine with that, I can handle that. But when people delve into your personal life and make up rumors and things that are completely false and untrue, it takes a toll on you. And it takes a toll on your family, your friends, and it’s completely unnecessary. It’s been tough, but I know I’ve got a strong group of teammates here, we’re going to stick together.”

The rumors have ranged from infidelity to rifts with teammates and have spread like wildfire on social media and the Intenet. One Web site listed numerous alleged incidents. Sharp said he is considering legal action to stop the spread of the rumors.

Afternoon Line-Terry Frei On Cody McLeod

 What Cody McLeod did last night at the end of the game was, to me, as much a stupid outgrowth of the North American game’s code and culture as it was a single despicable act. I’d ask anyone expressing outrage: Flip it 180 degrees or put the skate on the other foot … however you want to put it. How would you react?

-Terry Frei of the Denver Post where you can read more on McLeod.

What did McLeod do?... watch below...
