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."

Oilers sign Pouliot, Fayne to multiyear contracts

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

NHL.com

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.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
