from the AFP via Yahoo,
Latvian international ice hockey goaltender Arturs Irbe on Monday quit Slovak first division side Nitra after conceding 22 goals in six matches.
“It’s clearly disappointing because he cost us a lot of money. I don’t understand how he is able to risk his reputation in this way,” club trainer Jan Plandora complained. “We can’t sacrifice the rest of the season to allow him to recapture his form.”
TSN reporting Modin signs with Columbus.
from the Columbus Dispatch,
Blue Jackets forward Dan Fritsche will miss at least three weeks after suffering a severe cut to his right wrist during Sunday’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Nashville Predators.
“He’s got artery and tendon issues that need time to heal,” coach Ken Hitchcock said this morning. “He’ll be skating in the not-too-distant future, but we’re not going to evaluate him for three weeks.”
Sources tell TSN the Florida Panthers have agreed to a trade involving Gary Roberts and have asked him to waive his no trade clause.
But sources say the deal is not with Toronto or Ottawa, the only two teams Roberts has said he will go to. So at this point, the ball is in Roberts’ court, but there is no guarantee he will waive the clause.
Piitsburgh is believed to be the team with the most interest in Roberts.
added 12:46pm, Bill Watters on Leafs Lunch said it is an Eastern Conference team.
added 12:59pm, Watters said he just talked with the “Roberts Camp” and they have heard nothing about this deal.
from John McGourty of NHL.com,
Here’s a scary thought: How would you like to be seen as Nicklas Lidstrom’s eventual replacement?
Fortunately for one possible Detroit Red Wings heir apparent, he knows there’s no replacing the four-time Norris Trophy winner.
Brett Lebda, 25, is being groomed in the offensive-defenseman role with the Red Wings while learning from Detroit veterans Lidstrom, Mathieu Schneider, Chris Chelios and Danny Markov.
from the Capitals Insider,
If you read my game story in this morning’s Post, you already know that the leading candidates to be dealt are pending unrestricted free agents Dainius Zubrus, Richard Zednik and Jamie Heward. Zubrus and Zednik have discussed signing extensions with the Caps, but as of late yesterday, neither was close to doing so, fueling speculation that both may have played their final game in Washington. In fact, I was told that the Caps haven’t even spoken to Zubrus’s agent for “a few days.”
That leaves precious little time to hammer out a deal to keep Zubrus. Even Zubrus said “it’s a good possibility” that yesterday’s 3-2 loss to the Devils was his last game as a member of the Caps
Bob McKenzie was just on NHL Live and mentioned Detroit, Atlanta and Ottawa, along with the Sharks being in the running for Guerin. He would not be surprised to see a deal done today.
TSN reports Ryan Smyth’s agent will be meeting with the Oilers today to discuss his contract.
Are teams holding off on trades to see where these negotiations go?
I would say yes they are but I can’t see the Oilers losing the face of their organization, just like Doan with the Yotes…
from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
But right now, Ottawa seems to be ahead of Toronto on the Roberts front.
I believe there’s an excellent chance Todd Bertuzzi will be traded before the deadline even though he isn’t playing right now. There are offers on the table right now, and the Panthers just have to decide if one is acceptable.
a little more from Bob including what do the Canadiens do…
