Bruins on outside as Atlantic teams make changes

Sunday, 07.13.2014 / 3:15 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Salary-cap constraints have forced Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli to watch from the sidelines as the rest of the GMs in the Atlantic Division have made efforts to improve their rosters in an attempt to catch the Bruins.

Steve Yzerman (Tampa Bay Lightning), Dave Nonis (Toronto Maple Leafs), Dale Tallon (Florida Panthers) and Tim Murray (Buffalo Sabres) have been among the busiest managers in the League since the market opened at noon ET on July 1, combining to sign or acquire via trade 18 players.

Marc Bergevin (Montreal Canadiens) and Bryan Murray (Ottawa Senators) most notably have been involved in some significant trades involving veteran players. Meanwhile, Ken Holland has struggled to find players willing to take the Detroit Red Wings' money.

Tide of Pacific stays tilted toward California teams

Sunday, 07.13.2014 / 3:13 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The new-look Pacific Division broke into two tiers for the 2013-14: The California teams were on one level and the other four clubs were far off the pace.

Depending on what happens with the curious case of the San Jose Sharks' rebuilding project, it looks like those tiers could be in place again in 2014-15. The Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks will expect to contend for the Stanley Cup, and the Sharks might be in the group of potential champions if their summer makeover doesn't reach extreme status.

Anaheim and San Jose were one victory away from knocking Los Angeles out of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Kings return nearly everyone and will be seeking a third NHL title in four seasons.

The other four teams are trying to return to the playoffs. Given the way teams in the Central Division have loaded up, it might be difficult for the Pacific to squeeze a fourth back into the postseason.

Hashimoto has memorable trip to Blue Jackets camp

Sunday, 07.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- What little he knew of the NHL, a 10-year-old Ryo Hashimoto learned from viewing a highlight video at home in Sapporo, Japan.

"I watched a lot of games but it was the same tape over and over again," he said Tuesday through a translator. "Now I can pick up the computer and follow on NHL.com."

Hashimoto got a chance this week to see the NHL firsthand as a free-agent invitee to Columbus Blue Jackets development camp that ended Thursday.

The 21-year-old hopes his efforts eventually lead to a contract with the Blue Jackets, but the Japanese Hockey Federation already has benefitted from his time here.

"People are following him back home," said Yasuhiro Umeta, the vice chief secretary for Asia League Ice Hockey who traveled with Hashimoto and acted as his interpreter.

"I'm so happy he has the opportunity. He thinks he can play here."

Capitals owner says new regime 'in total sync'

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:45 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. – In entering the first phase of what was termed an organizational refresh earlier this offseason, it was imperative to Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis that all facets of management were aligned.

"You need to be totally in sync [with new coach Barry Trotz]," Leonsis recalled telling general manager Brian MacLellan upon promoting him in May. "With the players that we sign, the players that we draft, you have to be in total sync."

Two months into the Capitals' new regime, Leonsis has seen his directives carried out to his satisfaction.

"So far, so good on that," he said Saturday. "I think that's a good move in a positive direction to have the organization all singing from the same songbook."

Fabbri makes strong first impression on Blues

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- Tim Taylor has gotten to know St. Louis Blues 2014 first-round pick Robert Fabbri quite extensively this week.

The Blues director of player development worked with some of their top prospects during development camp at the Ice Zone, inside St. Louis Outlet Mall.

After watching Fabbri, Taylor understood why the Blues made the center from the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League the 21st pick last month.

"There's a reason why we picked him first," Taylor said of Fabbri, who had 45 goals and 87 points in 58 regular-season games then was named MVP of the OHL playoffs after he had 13 goals and 28 points in 16 games. He capped his season with two goals and four assists in four games while helping the Storm reach the Memorial Cup championship game.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.

— Washington defenseman Matt Niskanen on why he decided to sign with the Capitals
