Analysis: Options appear limited for Brodeur

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

Dan Rosen - 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.

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."

Oilers sign Pouliot, Fayne to multiyear contracts

Wednesday, 07.02.2014 / 2:25 AM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish entered the opening day of free agency aiming to make his team bigger and faster. He feels he did both by signing center Benoit Pouliot and defensemen Keith Aulie and Mark Fayne on Tuesday.

Aulie (6-foot-6, 228 pounds) and Fayne (6-3, 210 pounds) bring size to the blue line. Pouliot (6-3, 197 pounds) played for the New York Rangers last season; he adds speed and could take the spot of Sam Gagner, who was sent to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday in a deal that brought back 6-3, 203-pound forward Teddy Purcell.

Edmonton also re-signed 6-3, 240-pound forward Luke Gazdic to a two-year contract.


Hurricanes re-sign wing Tlusty, add goalie MacIntyre

Wednesday, 07.02.2014 / 12:04 AM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Forward Jiri Tlusty signed a one-year, $2.95 million contract Tuesday to remain with the Carolina Hurricanes, who also signed goaltender Drew MacIntyre to a one-year, two-way contract and forward Brendan Malone to a two-year deal.

Tlusty, 26, had 16 goals and 30 points in 68 games last season. Those numbers were down from the career highs of 23 goals and 38 points he had in 48 games in 2012-13 with Carolina.

In seven NHL seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Hurricanes, Tlusty has 73 goals and 142 points in 344 games.

Mike Cammalleri received a special phone call from an old friend not long after signing with the New Jersey Devils on the opening day of NHL free agency Tuesday.

Trade to Sabres ends Gorges' run in Montreal

Tuesday, 07.01.2014 / 11:18 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

Josh Gorges stood in the Montreal Canadiens dressing room just over a month earlier, and it was almost as if he knew what was coming.

Standing there in Madison Square Garden following his team's elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs at the hands of the New York Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final, Gorges was emotional, his words were heavy. He was unable to complete sentences at times.

He knew that what might have been his best opportunity to do what he has always said was his ultimate goal, to win a Stanley Cup with the Canadiens, had slipped through his fingers.


Blues load up down the middle

Tuesday, 07.01.2014 / 10:46 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Louie Korac - Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- In each of the past three seasons, the St. Louis Blues have seen their Stanley Cup Playoff hopes ended by two of the premier teams in the Western Conference.

The Los Angeles Kings (twice) and Chicago Blackhawks, winners of the past three Stanley Cups, have sent the Blues into the summer earlier than they would have liked. One reason has been a lack of depth at center.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong indicated at the team's exit meetings and subsequent media session that things needed to change.
