Back with Flyers, Umberger's career comes 'full circle'

Philadelphia Flyers forward R.J. Umberger joined NHL Live to discuss his trade to the Flyers from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for forward Scott Hartnell.

Umberger returns to Philadelphia, where he spent his first three NHL seasons before the Flyers traded him to the Blue Jackets in June 2008 for two draft picks. He had 18 goals and 34 points in 74 games for the Blue Jackets in 2013-14, has 169 goals and 366 points in 673 career games and has scored at least 20 goals five times in nine seasons.

"It's come full circle now," Umberger said. "It's an exciting moment for myself and my family. I think moving out of Columbus, I think this is an ideal situation and I can't wait to get there and started."

Bill McCreary on Hall of Fame, 'rise to the top'

Longtime NHL referee Bill McCreary joined NHL Live to discuss a distinguished career that earned him a place in the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2014.

McCreary will be the 16th on-ice official to enter the Hall when he's enshrined on Nov. 17. He worked 1,700 regular-season and 282 playoff games, and was the referee in the gold-medal games at the 2002 Salt Lake City and 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

"It's very exciting and I'm very honored," McCreary said. "Honestly it never entered my mind. Yes, I was around almost three decades, but that's just, I guess, luck. I never had serious injuries, so it allowed me to stay on the ice longer, and of course the two-referee system helped me stay on the ice longer.

Stars great Modano talks Hall call on NHL Live

Former Minnesota North Stars and Dallas Stars legend Mike Modano joined NHL Live to discuss his recent induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

A seven-time all-star and the highest-scoring American-born player in NHL history (561 goals, 1,374 points), Modano led the Stars to the Stanley Cup in 1999 and leads all American players with 146 playoff points. He played all but 40 of his 1,499 games, the most by a U.S.-born forward, with the Minnesota/Dallas franchise.

"I still can't believe the call," Modano said. "I was just driving around doing some errands, trying to keep busy, trying not to think about it, and then about a quarter to two Dallas time, I see a 416 (area code) coming across my phone. I couldn't say what I really wanted to say and how much it meant to you. I just had to pull over and kind of collect my thoughts. It's certainly amazing."

Lightning coach Cooper eager to take next step

Tampa Bay Lightning coach and Jack Adams Award finalist Jon Cooper joined NHL Live to look back at the 2013-14 season and what the future holds for his team.

Cooper, Mike Babcock of the Detroit Red Wings and Patrick Roy of the Colorado Avalanche are the three finalists for the Adams Award, presented to the coach who has "contributed the most to his team's success." The winner will be announced June 24 during the 2014 NHL Awards from Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. The 2014 NHL Awards will be broadcast by NBCSN in the United States and CBC in Canada.

Cooper took over the Lightning team late in the 2012-13 season, when they finished 28th in the League standings. In his first full season, he guided the Lighting to a 46-27-9 record (101 points) and second-place finish before they were swept by the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Predators GM open to trading first-round draft pick

Nashville Predators general manager David Poile joined NHL Live to discuss what's next for the organization and his plans for the 2014 NHL Draft.

The Predators own the No. 11 pick of the 2014 draft, which begins June 27 (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN) at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Nashville finished the regular season 38-32-12 and failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"I've made it known that we're trying to improve our forwards," Poile said. "We'd like to get a top-six forward if we could. If we can do that in a trade, that would be great. If that took trading a draft pick, or even our first pick, I would be open to that. I've made it known to a lot of teams that if they were willing to trade a top forward, I'd be willing to trade the No. 11 pick in the draft."

Capitals GM MacLellan targeting goaltending, defense

Washington Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan joined NHL Live to discuss what's on tap for the offseason.

MacLellan became the sixth general manager in Capitals history when he was promoted on May 26 after spending the past 13 seasons with the organization as a pro scout, director of player personnel and assistant GM.

"I wasn't sure I was going to get the job," MacLellan said. "I was just trying to give the most honest opinion I could of where our organization was at, and what my vision was going forward. I don't think I was critical of ownership, but it was more of this is the way I would see it happening in the future, where ownership and the manager and the coach are all in sync on what we're doing philosophically and they were going to support each other."
