NHL Tampering, Award Finalists, Luongo Trade Rumors, and More!

Quick Notes from the day:

  • Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo has told reporters that he will waive a NTC if the right situation comes.
    • There are reports from multiple people that he has submitted a list with teams he would be willing to waive his NTC for. There are also reports that this list does not exist.
    • @Aportzline is saying that the Blue Jackets may be interested in Luongo, but his monster deal is making him a last ditch resort.
      • His contract: $5.33 Million cap hit all the way to 2021-2022 and his clause is as follows, NTC (player can supply five-team trade list following final game of 2013-14, valid through July 15, 2014; if player does not submit trade list at that time, team can request a five-team trade list following final game of 2017-18 season, valid through Sept. 1, 2018). If player submitted a trade list in 2014 and was not moved, team loses right to request trade list in 2018. (Source: Capgeek.com)
  • Ray Shero is not sure he can re-sign both Jordan Staal and Sidney Crosby and feels that the CBA and their willingness to stay will be a determining factor if they can be re-signed. He also gave a vote of confidence to coach Dan Bylsma saying  “I think Dan Bylsma is the right coach for our team”.
  • @dchesnokov reports that Leafs' Mikhail Grabovski gave an interview to goals.by saying that there was another offer besides the offer from the Leafs he eventually accepted. 
    • We are pretty sure that the offer did not come from an NHL team due to the tampering rules in place. Our only explanation is it is from a KHL team.
      • @dchesnokov is reporting maybe Minsk? or he said too much....
  • Bill Masterton Finalists:
    • D.Alfredsson (OTT)
    • J. Lupul (TOR)
    • M. Pacioretty (MTL)
  • GM of The Year Finalists:
    • D. Armstrong (STL)
    • D. Poile (NSH)
    • D. Tallon (FLA)
