Ehrhoff eager for new beginning with Penguins

Wednesday, 07.02.2014 / 5:00 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Newly signed Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Christian Ehrhoff was expecting an eventful summer, but he never saw this coming.

After a contract buyout by the Buffalo Sabres that unexpectedly thrust him into the free-agent market, Ehrhoff is excited by the chance to revive his career with a Pittsburgh team going through several changes of its own.

Ehrhoff was at his offseason home in Germany when he received a phone call Sunday from his agent, Rick Curran. It was almost 7 a.m. ET when Curran called, so Ehrhoff knew it must have been important.

"My initial thought was I might have been traded," Ehrhoff said Wednesday. "It was different news."

Analysis: Options appear limited for Brodeur

Wednesday, 07.02.2014 / 4:14 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Martin Brodeur is doing something he has never done before in his illustrious 21-season NHL career. There's no telling how long it will last.

He is searching for a job.

Brodeur is an unrestricted free agent and has never been in the position of needing to look for work. Then again, Brodeur, the NHL's all-time leader in wins, shutouts and just about any other goaltender stat there is, has never been a potential backup goalie or a free agent beyond July 2.

Sakic confident Avalanche met needs with additions

Wednesday, 07.02.2014 / 3:33 PM / NHL Insider

Rick Sadowski  -  NHL.com Correspondent

DENVER -- Despite losing free agent Paul Stastny to the Central Division rival St. Louis Blues, Joe Sakic believes the Colorado Avalanche are better than they were when they lost to the Minnesota Wild in the Western Conference First Round.

Sakic, the Avalanche's executive vice president of hockey operations, said Wednesday the additions of forwards Jarome Iginla, Daniel Briere and Jesse Winchester, along with defensemen Brad Stuart and Zach Redmond, have improved Colorado's size, depth, experience and toughness.

"We saw how last year went and we had a tremendous year," Sakic said of the Avalanche's surprising first-place finish in the division, "but at the end of the year after our playoff loss to Minnesota we knew we needed to have a little more depth on our third and fourth lines, and we felt we needed to get tougher.

"We feel we got tougher, and for sure the experience factor -- leadership -- you can never have enough of that. We know our core guys are young. To bring in this leadership to help them along is huge. Now you're not relying on one or two or three guys to be leaders. We have a whole bunch of leaders helping our young guys. There were a lot of things we tried to accomplish, which we think we did."

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
