Coyotes GM Maloney says 'everybody up for grabs'

Friday, 01.30.2015 / 2:31 PM / News

Arizona Coyotes general manager Don Maloney has made an honest appraisal of his team and has decided it's time for the Coyotes to make some changes to the roster.

"Where we're at, we have to look at everybody and everything," Maloney said Friday during an appearance on TSN 1200 in Ottawa. "There's nobody we wouldn't talk about in a deal. … Shane Doan isn't going anywhere. Oliver Ekman-Larsson we would be very reluctant to part with."

Among the players who could be most desirable for other teams are center Antoine Vermette and defenseman Keith Yandle. The NHL Trade Deadline is 3 p.m. ET on March 2.

"When you're sitting with our record, then everybody is up for grabs," Maloney said. "If there's a deal out there that will make us better long-term … we're not doing anything to plug a hole short-term."

Brodeur retires, named senior adviser to Blues GM

Thursday, 01.29.2015 / 2:22 PM / News

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- Goalie Martin Brodeur ended his playing career the same way he started it: with a big smile on his face.

Brodeur, who established some of the greatest goaltending records in NHL history, including 691 wins and 125 shutouts, announced his retirement from the NHL on Thursday after a 22-year career, which included a brief stint with the St. Louis Blues. Brodeur will immediately join their front office as senior adviser to general manager Doug Armstrong.

When Brodeur, who spent the first 21 years of his career with the New Jersey Devils and won the Stanley Cup three times, signed a one-year, $700,000 contract in December that included incentives, he said he wasn't ready to let go of the game that meant so much to him.

As he stood at the podium with a suit and tie inside the Bud Light Zone at Scottrade Center, it was evident he finally had closure, even though there was the sense Brodeur feels like he can still play if needed.

"This is a great day for me," Brodeur said. "… This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing. … This is going to be a great challenge for me."
