Ducks get Kesler in trade from Canucks

Friday, 06.27.2014 / 6:46 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Kesler did his research and decided he has a better chance of winning the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks than with the Vancouver Canucks. That's the reason, and the only reason, the center waived his no-trade clause to permit a trade to the Ducks on Friday.

Vancouver traded Kesler and a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft to Anaheim for center Nick Bonino, defenseman Luca Sbisa and Anaheim's first-round and third-round picks in the 2014 NHL Draft (Nos. 24 and 85).

Kesler has two years and $10 million ($5 million salary-cap charge) remaining on his contract.

"I'm going to Anaheim to win a championship," Kesler said. "That's going to be my sole goal and my team's sole goal. That's basically it."

Sharks GM says team needs better chemistry

Friday, 06.27.2014 / 6:34 PM / News

PHILADELPHIA -- San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson is well aware of his team's strengths and how close it is to attaining the ultimate goal of winning a Stanley Cup. But he is equally aware of his team's weaknesses, and addressing them is what Wilson meant when he said he was undertaking a rebuild of the Sharks.

It's not often you see a team that finished fifth overall in the NHL standings undergo an offseason rebuild, but Wilson was told by his players following the Sharks' seven-game loss to the Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs that there were issues in the dressing room that needed to corrected.

Speaking before the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center on Friday, Wilson summarized those issues as a feeling that the players were "co-workers, not teammates" and that is the main thing that separated the Sharks from the Kings.

Bruins want Iginla back despite salary-cap issues

Friday, 06.27.2014 / 5:04 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- As much as the Boston Bruins and veteran right wing Jarome Iginla want to continue their affiliation, general manager Peter Chiarelli knows the NHL salary cap might get in the way of their partnership advancing beyond this month.

"Jarome wants to stay and we're trying to find a spot for him, but we're both big boys; if we can't, we can't," Chiarelli said Friday morning. "Certainly we're both trying to work at it."

Chiarelli made his comments before the NHL officially set the salary cap for the 2014-15 season at $69 million. That figure could be problematic for the Bruins, whose cap figure will be reduced by $4.75 million, according to CapGeek.com, because of bonus overages, most notably owed to Iginla, that carry into 2014-15.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
