Kings backup Goalie is being put on the block. Philly, Toronto, New York Islanders are the rumored teams.

Quote:
The Flyers are one of what has grown to an even dozen clubs contacted by Los Angeles general manager Dean Lombardi about interest in goalie Jonathan Bernier, according to a Kings’ source.

That said, the Kings have not been given the impression the Flyers are fully committed yet to making a switch in goal with Ilya Bryzgalov.

The source said Lombardi is doing his due diligence in trying to move the 24-year-old Bernier, who will be a restricted free agent this summer.

“Basically, we’re running an auction,” the source said.

Perhaps an expensive one, too.

There has been on-going debate within the Flyers as to whether to hand Bryzgalov a “compliance buyout” once the period for such begins 48 hours after the completion of the Stanley Cup Final.

Hope Homer overpays in this deal, Chadta! Sounds like LW Matt Read and a pick going the Kings way is the offer.

Yep. Boston has been the better team from start to finish in the series aside from the last 8 minutes of the third period in game 1 and the first period in game 2. They have controlled the other 10+ periods. They could be up 3-0 in the series, but Chicago could have won game 2. 2-1 Boston is where the series should be right now.

they did that same **** a few years ago. wanted a king's ransom for Bernier and his stock has dropped significantly since then.
i remember they wanted the Avs to bend over and get reamed silly for acquiring Bernier, as did the Canucks with Scheider. that's what lead the Avs to dealing for Varlamov.

with a actual full time goalie coach now it should work out very well for the Avs.

I hope Homer gives up Read and a prospect for Bernier.

Yeah and it doesn't appear to be working out for the Avalanche.

Meanwhile, the Kings have just extended Voynov. Well done Dean Lombardi...well done.


6 years, 25 million. 4.1 million cap hit.

You just lost Scuds with this signing. You have about 1m per open roster spot left.

Bring "The Piece" back home Ray.

Willie Mitchell will probably be on the LTIR, which gives the Kings more Cap relief. I don't forsee a problem getting Scuds resigned if he wants to stay in LA.

hasn't dropped since then my ass. they wanted 2 firsts + for Bernier back than and some teams were actually considering it.
they won't even demand near that this time. he's not even viewed in the same light by league people now.

it worked out fine for the Avs. our former regime was just stupid as ****.
what kind of GM & coach doesn't hire a full time goalie coach after both of your goalies ask for it and say they need it?

First of all, Kings weren't ready to part with Bernier then. Secondly, there was no asking price. Kings simply turned down the Avalanche's offer, as did the Canucks for the same reason.

I've read an article or two on the DPO and it sounds like everyone is ready to run Varlamov out of town. Second, I'd say its a lot more than just a goalie coach that is needed to turn that franchise around. I am curious to see how Joe Sakic does in his first draft and handles trades to turn it around there.

the problem with using the chris pronger/ paul holmgren approach to cap management is that during the summer you can only go over by 10% of the cap, and the person cant be put on LTIR until day one of the season, by then all the free agent deals are done.

Kosman's story has been debunked. This is the same clown that said Parise is staying in NJ last summer and Bill Daly commented on it...

I wonder if Boston will crank up the heat in their building even more so the ice will be crap. They'll probably be playing on rollerblades.

The Baby Wings won the AHL with Tomas Tatar claiming the playoff MVP trophy for his 17 goals - quite a fitting end to his AHL career.

Seth Jones makes so much sense for them, I'll believe they're not taking him when they make their pick.

the clear cut choice was Jones. he's the #1 ranked player and only twice in the past 15-20 years has the #1 not gone #1 overall.
MacKinnon is the only other potential #1 overall.

i hope we're bluffing since it's known that Florida has a woody something serious for MacKinnon.

i hope it's a bluff. the wording is key. he says if they pick #1. it's known the Avs want to trade down but Florida and Tampa didn't believe they would pass on Jones. both Tampa and Florida want MacKinnon but won't part with nice pieces to move up to #1.

PIT media reporting Letang will be traded for sure. Negotiations went nowhere. Shero wasn't going to go higher than 6 and Letang isn't having it (a wise choice on his part as the market will bear more....he can definitely hit 7 or 7.5 if Streit is getting over 5). PIT also would not give him a full NMC....as those were reserved only for Sid and Geno.

Expect a trade shortly or at the draft at latest.

Let the bidding begin.

Only thing that makes me hesitate a bit about this report is that it's Rob Rossi doing the reporting so I'm taking it with a grain of salt....but it does seem to make sense even tho it's Rossi.

Doubtful. If anything, the bad ice seemed hurt Boston more. Bouncing pucks cost Boston a few potential goals and actually caused the only breakaways for the Blackhawks.
