The TorontoSun.com is reporting a bunch of speculation regarding coaching rumors and possible player transactions.
GM Peter Chiarelli provided an update on Patrice Bergeron, who suffered a Grade 3 concussion six days ago when Philadelphia defenseman Randy Jones belted him into the TD Banknorth Garden boards.
“He could be out a month. He could be out two months. He could be out a year,” Chiarelli said.
Well, here’s my 3rd installment of trade rumours. Hopefully you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
sources are reporting that Jason Spezza has signed a 7yr $49mil extension with a provisional no trade clause.
Spezza will be paid 8M$ for the first 5 season and then 5M$ and 4M$ for the last two.
He will have a 7M$ cap hit on the Sens cap.
It goes to show that there has been a lot of hype about the Canucks defense and its prospects of at least reaching the playoffs after managing to sign Sami Salo, Kevin Bieksa, and Lucas Kraijeck to extensions as well as signing Aarron Miller to a one year deal. This would leave the Canucks with a solid top 6 of Mitchell, Ohlund, Salo, Bieksa, Krajicek and Miller. A great defensive core, for any team, add to the fact that Luongo is manning the pipes in the rear, most people would think that the Canucks would be a very hard team to score against. However, the Canucks are off to a slow start (5-8-0)(1-6-0 at home “worst in the NHL”) after finishing the season with the best record after Christmas (32-8-6), as well as the best PK in the league. Things aren’t looking to great for the Canucks.
