Mike Cammalleri received a special phone call from an old friend not long after signing with the New Jersey Devils on the opening day of NHL free agency Tuesday.

"Jarome Iginla called to congratulate me and said that it must be pretty cool knowing I'd get to play with Jaromir Jagr," Cammalleri told reporters on a conference call. "It's great knowing I'll have an opportunity to play with him; he's a legend in our game."


Trade to Sabres ends Gorges' run in Montreal

Josh Gorges stood in the Montreal Canadiens dressing room just over a month earlier, and it was almost as if he knew what was coming.

Standing there in Madison Square Garden following his team's elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs at the hands of the New York Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final, Gorges was emotional, his words were heavy. He was unable to complete sentences at times.

He knew that what might have been his best opportunity to do what he has always said was his ultimate goal, to win a Stanley Cup with the Canadiens, had slipped through his fingers.


Blues load up down the middle

ST. LOUIS -- In each of the past three seasons, the St. Louis Blues have seen their Stanley Cup Playoff hopes ended by two of the premier teams in the Western Conference.

The Los Angeles Kings (twice) and Chicago Blackhawks, winners of the past three Stanley Cups, have sent the Blues into the summer earlier than they would have liked. One reason has been a lack of depth at center.

Blues general manager Doug Armstrong indicated at the team's exit meetings and subsequent media session that things needed to change.

Newcomers will help Stars on and off ice

FRISCO, Texas -- Jim Nill had every reason to be a happy man Tuesday.

The Dallas Stars general manager started his day by acquiring veteran center Jason Spezza from the Ottawa Senators in a trade that cost him young forward Alex Chiasson and two prospects. He followed that move by signing veteran right wing Ales Hemsky, who showed late-season chemistry with Spezza after being acquired from the Edmonton Oilers, to a three-year contract reportedly worth $12 million.

Nill then signed backup goaltender Anders Lindback and added another veteran forward, Patrick Eaves, a player he knew well from his time with the Detroit Red Wings.

When Nill's day was done, he looked at the pieces he added and now sees a group of players who not only make the Stars more formidable on the ice but also bring a veteran presence to what he feels is already a great dressing room led by captain Jamie Benn.

"Something that I mentioned to both players [Hemsky and Spezza] that I keep mentioning to people when I talk is how good our dressing room is here in Dallas," said Nill, whose team qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2008, in his first season as GM. "I've been around some great dressing rooms with the Detroit Red Wings. This dressing room we have in Dallas, there's something special about it with our leadership starting with Jamie Benn, with our leadership in our coaching staff, with the young players, their determination, their expectations, their accountability. It's as good a dressing room as I've seen anywhere."


Maple Leafs sign Robidas, Komarov

Tuesday, 07.01.2014 / 9:32 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014


The Toronto Maple Leafs signed defenseman Stephane Robidas to a three-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.

Robidas, 37, split last season with the Dallas Stars and Anaheim Ducks, scoring five goals and 10 points in 38 games. The veteran was traded to the Ducks at the NHL Trade Deadline after spending parts of 11 seasons in Dallas.

"He's a heart-and-soul kind of a player," Toronto general manager Dave Nonis said. "He's a player I think that at the end of every year you can look back and say he's given you everything he had. He's still a very effective player."


Analysis: Thanks to Nill, Stars are contenders again

After almost 19 years working under Ken Holland to build the Detroit Red Wings into a perennial Stanley Cup contender, Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill needed 14 months and two days to put his new team in the middle of the competitive arms race in the Western Conference.

Nill gave the Stars the ammunition they needed Tuesday by acquiring Ottawa Senators captain Jason Spezza in a trade and signing Senators forward Ales Hemsky to a three-year contract reportedly worth $12 million.


Sabres sign five on first day of free agency

BUFFALO -- After a weekend at the 2014 NHL Draft that had the Buffalo Sabres feeling good about the future, the team made a splash on the first day of free agency by acquiring five players Tuesday.

Sabres general manager Tim Murray signed unrestricted free agent forwards Brian Gionta, Matt Moulson and Cody McCormick, and defenseman Andrej Meszaros.

Buffalo also acquired defenseman Josh Gorges from the Montreal Canadiens in a trade for a second-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft and re-signed restricted free agent forward Marcus Foligno.

A veteran group joining what was a very young team at the end of the 2014 season should help ease any concerns about leadership heading into next season.

"We're more competitive," Murray said. "We've got a lot of character now. We have leadership now. That's important to me when you're adding young players every year. There's a short term and a long term. The long-term is that your young players get better. Your young players become pros. They're not just good players, they're good NHL players, and I think that this group of people that we've added today can help in that regard."

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
