Modano hints at impending retirement

Friday, 07.29.2011 / 12:32 PM / 2011 Offseason News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Mike Modano said he isn't ready to announce his retirement, but did say during a recent radio interview that he isn't working out for the 2011-12 season and hasn't spoken to any teams about playing a 22nd season.

"I don't know," he said Thursday when asked about his playing future by Dallas radio station 1310 AM. "I think that was the swan song."

Modano, 41, was limited to just 40 games last season due to a serious arm injury. He severed three tendons and a nerve in his right arm during a game Nov. 26 in Columbus when a Blue Jackets player's skate got caught inside his glove. The injury sidelined him three months and scuttled his hopes for a happy homecoming; Modano had grown up a Red Wings fan in Livonia, Mich.

"The injury really was a big buzz kill," Modano said.

Devils' Parise still hopes to avoid arbitration

Thursday, 07.28.2011 / 7:21 PM / 2011 Offseason News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Zach Parise used the words anxious, excited and nervous to describe his emotions as the arbitration hearing he wants no part of draws closer.

New Jersey's star left wing remains a restricted free agent and is scheduled to be in Toronto on Wednesday for a team-elected arbitration hearing. Parise is comforted by the fact that he will be a Devil for the 2011-12 season because even if his case is heard by an independent arbiter, he will be awarded a one-year contract that the team will accept.

But, Parise wants to be a Devil for longer than just one season, and he wants to be paid properly, especially considering he's potentially one year away from being an unrestricted free agent.

"I've said all along that's where I want to be, that's where I want to play so I haven't planned on anything different," Parise told NHL.com Thursday night.

Report: MacTavish to take AHL coaching job

Thursday, 07.28.2011 / 2:35 PM / 2011 Offseason News

NHL.com

TSN is reporting that former Edmonton Oilers coach Craig MacTavish will be named the next coach of the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.

MacTavish coached the Oilers from the 2000-09, and in eight seasons he got the team into the playoffs three times, including a memorable run from the eighth seed in 2006 to the Stanley Cup Final. In 656 games, he went 301-252, with 47 ties and 56 overtime losses.

He has worked as an analyst with TSN since being let go by the Oilers following the 2008-09 season.

The Wolves now are affiliated with the Vancouver Canucks, whose long-time AHL team, the Manitoba Moose, moved to St. John's, Nfld., and will be the AHL affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets.

Thursday, 07.28.2011 / 1:12 PM / 2011 Offseason News

NHL.com

The New Jersey Devils dealt veteran forward Brian Rolston to the New York Islanders for forward Trent Hunter on Thursday.

The move will save the Devils a little more $3 million in cap space for this season. Hunter has two seasons left on contract, which pays him $2 million per season.

The move by New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello will help in the efforts to re-sign restricted free agent Zach Parise to a long-term deal. Parise is scheduled for an arbitration hearing on Aug. 3.

Richards ready for fresh start in Los Angeles

Wednesday, 07.27.2011 / 7:54 PM / 2011 Offseason News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- A series of emotions rolled over Mike Richards when he was told he would be leaving the only NHL team he had known.

There was confusion over why he was traded from Philadelphia to Los Angeles on June 23. There was shock that the circle of coaches and friends he had grown with would be gone. But three days later Richards found himself in Southern California, killing time with a walk on the sands of Manhattan Beach. It was good to be a King.

"I started walking on the beach and I was kind of thinking, 'It's not a bad place to be and not a bad place to start a new career,'" Richards said.

Richards' ties to Philadelphia will always be strong, but he is ready to turn the page after his exit from the Flyers, who traded Richards to the Los Angeles Kings for Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn and a second-round draft pick.

Washington again re-tooled its roster, this time adding the veteran No. 1 goalie that it has been missing over the past couple of seasons. Tampa Bay held on to its own talent while Carolina added the pass-first, puck-moving defenseman it hopes will improve the power play. Winnipeg began building its organization and Florida spent about $30 million to complete its overhaul.

Here is the entire breakdown of the division:
