  1. I don't want a player with an ego problem on the team. https://twitter.com/GinoRedaTSN/status/1174094073516441600?s=20
  2. @icemancometh Eakins has kept Steel centering Rakell and Silfverberg throughout first three days of camp. Lot of other mixing and matching with other lines, which he said he'd do.
  3. After reading the article, GMBM is more miffed with Carolina for leaking to the media than he is the media building it up.
  4. For now. BM was upset that Carolina leaked his name. He didn’t deny that he would have been part of the Faulk trade. SEPTEMBER 14, 2019 AT 8:56 PM CDT | BY HOLGER STOLZENBERG 4 COMMENTS While the rumors that the potential deal between the Carolina Hurricanes and Anaheim Ducks involving Justin Faulk and Ondrej Kase was unlikely to happen came in earlier today, Anaheim general manager Bob Murray declined comment, but did express displeasure in Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon (without mentioning his name), according to Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register. Murray blames the Hurricanes’ owner for leaking out Kase’s name in the trade negotiations. Kase doesn’t seem affected by the trade talk as the 23-year-old winger is trying to recover from surgery to repair a torn labrum that allowed him to appear in just 30 games last season. The winger said he hopes to play in one exhibition game and expects to be ready for the start of the season.
  5. Training Camp Notes: Byfuglien, Dach, Perry September 13th, 2019 at 10:19am CST • By Gavin Lee The Winnipeg Jets today announced that Dustin Byfuglien has been granted a leave of absence from the team and will not be participating at the start of training camp. Head coach Paul Maurice and GM Kevin Cheveldayoff both explained that it is not injury related and that it is “nothing sinister.” There is no timetable for his return, but hopefully he can get whatever it is sorted out quickly.

  8. Jim Nill updates us. Corey Perry has small fracture in foot. Will be re-evaluated in two weeks. Stephen Johns is not skating. They will not provide further updates. Julius Honka has asked for a trade.

  11. Since Theo was mentioned in this post, I decided to put this here. Theo’s Cancer diagnosis and recovery. Thankfully his cancer was found early because of random drug testing at the Worlds! https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/shea-theodore-nhl-vegas-golden-knights
  12. There are many rumors surrounding the Ducks these days. From Justin Faulk to Dion Phaneuf to Patrik Laine (yes, that Patrik Laine) our @icemancometh gave his take on all the conjecture around the team in his live Q&A.
  13. Rangers To Assign Matt Beleskey To The Minors SEPTEMBER 10, 2019 AT 6:39 PM CDT | BY BRIAN LA ROSE 3 COMMENTS Training camp hasn’t even officially started yet and the Rangers have already made their first cut. Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports (Twitter link) that New York plans to sent winger Matt Beleskey directly to training camp with AHL Hartford and will not have him at camp with the big club when it opens up later this week. While uncommon, this type of move isn’t entirely unprecedented as Buffalo did the same with winger Matt Moulson last season. However, the Rangers will officially have to wait for the waiver period to open up before they can make the move official. That will occur when it gets to twelve days before the start of the season. Beleskey spent the majority of last season with the Wolf Pack so the fact they intend to send him there should come as little surprise. In 53 games at that level, he had just five goals along with 17 assists while he picked up a goal in four games with New York. As a result, it’s quite likely that he’ll pass through unclaimed once again. The eventual move will free up some extra cap room for the Rangers. Teams can bury someone making up to $1.075MM in the minors without any cap penalty; any amount after that will still count on their cap. Beleskey’s cap hit with New York is $1.9MM (Boston is also on the hook for that amount) so he will only count on their books for $825K. With winger Brendan Lemieux and defenseman Anthony DeAngelo still sitting as restricted free agents, that extra space will go a long way towards helping to get those players under contract in the coming days and weeks.
  14. Maybe to get other teams interested and up the ante? Latest On Justin Faulk Trade Talks SEPTEMBER 10, 2019 AT 4:44 PM CDT | BY GAVIN LEE LEAVE A COMMENT Though several reports have come out that there is trade on the table between the Anaheim Ducks and Carolina Hurricanes revolving around Justin Faulk, the deal still hasn’t been finalized thanks to a no-trade clause and extension talks. An extension hasn’t yet been reached, the Hurricanes defender can block a deal to Anaheim if he chooses, and according to Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic other teams have now increased their interest in trying and add the offensive-minded Faulk. Those teams include ones that would not require Faulk to waive his 15-team no-trade clause, though LeBrun doesn’t give any indication of who they may be.
  15. 4. Anaheim and Carolina have a deal in principle, and it is now Justin Faulk’s decision. The Raleigh News & Observer’s Luke DeCock reported Ondrej Kase is part of the return, and he’s someone the Hurricanes tried to acquire last season. The Ducks are on Faulk’s no-trade list, and the two sides are trying to hammer out an extension. Faulk makes $6 million in salary this season, and while he’s not going to reach Jacob Trouba territory, that contract raised the bar for the field. You have to think he’s targeting $6.5 to $7 million. The Ducks appear willing to make the move without any long-term security at this time. At the very least, Faulk has to see the writing on the wall in Carolina. You never know how life will go, but, on paper, it’s not ideal for a player heading into free agency. 6. A few teams expressed surprise with the reports about Kase. He’s not someone who was available for a long time. Anaheim must be concerned about his health. @icemancometh Ondrej Kase is skating with #NHLDucks in their "informal" practice. As he should be -- for now. Just so y'all know.
