Rangers, McDonagh agree to terms on new contract

Monday, 07.08.2013 / 11:15 AM / NHL Free Agency 2013

The New York Rangers took care of one of their own Monday by agreeing to terms with 24-year-old defenseman Ryan McDonagh, reportedly on a six-year contract worth $28.2 million. McDonagh, whose new contract reportedly carries a salary-cap charge of $4.7 million, was a restricted free agent.

McDonagh has become one of the Rangers best defenseman over the past two and a half seasons and is a fixture on the top pair with Dan Girardi. He had 19 points and a plus-13 rating and was second on the team in ice time behind Girardi in 2012-13. He played nearly 26 minutes per game in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs and was starting to get more time on the power play as well.

McDonagh, who had 32 points in 82 games in the 2011-12 season, will likely become a regular on the power play under new coach Alain Vigneault.

Western Conference team-by-team moves

Sunday, 07.07.2013 / 4:42 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The first two days of NHL free agency have come and gone, and nearly every team in the League has undergone changes -- some significant, others less so.

Here's a team-by-team look at what has transpired in the Western Conference and which key unrestricted free agents are still searching for a home for the 2013-14 season:

ANAHEIM DUCKS

Say hello to: RW Jakob Silfverberg, RW Stefan Noesen, C Saku Koivu (re-signed), F Matt Beleskey (re-signed)

Say goodbye to: LW Bobby Ryan, D Nate Guenin

Still shopping: RW Radek Dvorak, D Jordan Hendry, C Matthew Lombardi, D Toni Lydman, RW Teemu Selanne, C David Steckel

Skinny: Trading Ryan obviously signals a significant shift for the organization. If Selanne returns for another year, the Ducks will still have three great offensive forwards (with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry), but how well Silfverberg can replace Ryan remains to be seen. There are other young forwards -- Emerson Etem in particular -- who could be ready for a top-six role. If Lydman doesn't return, Sami Vatanen or Hampus Lindholm locking down a regular spot on defense would help. If general manager Bob Murray looks to make another trade, there is goaltending depth with elite prospect and American World Junior hero John Gibson on the way. The Ducks also brought back one of their most versatile players when they re-signed forward Matt Beleskey to a two-year contract extension.

Lightning aren't asking Filppula to replace Lecavalier

Saturday, 07.06.2013 / 8:59 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

NHL.com

Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman used words to describe newly signed Valtteri Filppula that also could be used on former captain Vincent Lecavalier.

"High-character guy, he's a Stanley Cup winner."

But Yzerman on Saturday was quick to say Filppula was not given a five-year contract to leave the Detroit Red Wings and simply replace Lecavalier, who was let go via compliance buyout last week after 14 seasons with the Lightning that included the 2004 Stanley Cup.

"He's completely different than Vinny, [a] totally different type of player," Yzerman said. "Vinny was a No. 1 pick overall in the draft.

Lecavalier lands with Flyers after whirlwind week

Saturday, 07.06.2013 / 4:22 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Mike Battaglino - NHL.com Staff Writer

Vincent Lecavalier was part of the Tampa Bay Lightning organization for 14 years, and that relationship ended in less than a week.

Free to choose a new NHL home, Lecavalier needed little more than a long weekend to decide on the Philadelphia Flyers.

"[I was] part of an organization for 14 years, so it was a tough few days, but after I talked to [coach Peter Laviolette] and [general manager Paul Holmgren], I really liked what they had to say and where the organization is going," Lecavalier said Saturday, when the Flyers officially announced they had signed the veteran forward.

A No. 1 draft pick, Stanley Cup champion, captain, and admired member of the Tampa Bay community, Lecavalier at first found it difficult to become a compliance buyout.
