Phoenix Coyotes GM Don Maloney shopping around for deal

Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney has yet to see the 2013 version of his team practice, let alone compete in a game, but that hasn’t stopped Maloney from seeking personnel improvement.

In the days leading up to the start of training camp on Sunday, Maloney thought he might have been able to orchestrate a trade and have it waiting in the hopper to execute once the NHL and players’ association agreed to a memorandum of understanding Saturday night that officially ended the lockout.

Roberto Luongo conducting himself with absolute class as his departure nears

When Roberto Luongo leaves the Canucks, he will depart as the city’s greatest-ever goaltender.

When he is traded, he will leave with a gold medal, two shutouts in the Stanley Cup final, and a resume which says “Hart Trophy finalist.”

He will leave with at least 13 more wins and 13 more shutouts than Kirk McLean — and that’s in 130 fewer Canucks games.

Eager Krejci shrugs off trade rumors

David Krejci was back on the ice Friday with his Bruins teammates for the first time since heading over to his native Czech Republic to play for HC Pardubice during the lockout, and the 26-year-old pivot said he was aware of the persistent rumors about a possible trade to Phoenix or Anaheim. But he made it clear, as he did last season when the rumors started, that he wants to remain a Bruin.

“I’ve seen it and I have time to go on the Internet, so I know what’s going on,” Krejci said. “I went through lots of things and saw my name there, but there’s nothing I can control. I am happy here, and I hope I haven’t given them any reasons to trade me. So I can’t control it, and I just want to go out there and play my best.”

Dave Nonis says goaltending is team’s No. 1 priority

Despite singing the praises of James Reimer and Ben Scrivens, newly appointed Toronto Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis said he won’t hesitate to make a move via trade if either goaltender fails to impress early in the season.

One day after taking over from Brian Burke, who was fired by the team on Wednesday, Nonis appeared on Hockey Night in Canada Radio with hosts Gord Stellick and Scott Oake to discuss, among several issues, the Leafs’ No. 1 priority: goaltending.

Will the Avs trade O’Reilly

Will standout young center Ryan O’Reilly be under contract and available to play in the Jan. 19 season opener?

The Avalanche locker room just isn’t the same without the hardworking “Factor,” a 21-year-old unrestricted free agent who is still playing in Russia.

Four reasons why Flyers would consider Luongo

The overwhelming question is why would the Flyers even remotely explore the possibility? Here’s why:

Will the Buffalo Sabres Look to Reunite Tyler Myers and Sam Gagner?

When the lockout put the league’s general managers in a deep freeze in September, one of the more prominent rumors floating around was a trade between the Buffalo Sabres and the Edmonton Oilers.

Most talk about the trade was entirely speculative, so no names could be discussed with any sort of authority, but the lockout may have given some clarity as to the situation if it were to play out.

To rehash what was said this summer, the Oilers need defenseman. Justin Schultz has blown the top off of the AHL in Oklahoma City during the lockout, but he’s not going to be the three-zone guy that the Oilers sorely need. His success would certainly go a long way, but the Oilers are likely going to need more.
