LEAFS ACQUIRE D GLEASON FROM HURRICANES FOR LILES, PROSPECT

TSN.CA STAFF

1/1/2014 6:29:46 PM

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired veteran defencemanTim Gleason from the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday in exchange for defenceman John-Michael Liles.

 

The Hurricanes also received the rights to Brown University defencemanDennis Robertson in the trade announced during the Maple Leafs' game against Detroit in the Winter Classic.

 

The 30-year-old Gleason was the Hurricanes' most physical forward and one of the longest-tenured players on the team. Only captain Eric Staaland 2006 Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie Cam Ward have been with the franchise longer.

 

The 33-year-old Liles had 15 hits and averaged 17 minutes of ice time in six games this season with the Maple Leafs. He was scratched from the Winter Classic.

 

"John Liles was an excellent person for us and an excellent player," Toronto coach Randy Carlyle said. "He backed what we were trying to do and he was one of our leaders and it was a hard thing to do. An unfortunate situation where we couldn't get him ice time. Young guys like Morgan Reilly pushed him out the door. It was an unfortunate situation."

 

Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford says Liles is a puck-mover who "can make a difference offensively" from the blue line.

 

The Hurricanes acquired Gleason in a trade with Los Angeles in September 2006, three months after they won their only Stanley Cup. He missed 21 games this season due to injury, including the first 10 with a concussion, and had one assist while playing at a minus-7 rating with 10 penalty minutes.

 

Gleason played in 491 career games with the Hurricanes -- the third-highest total of any defenceman since the club moved from Hartford in 1997 -- and his 495 penalty minutes are the most of any Carolina defenceman since the move.

 

He was a healthy scratch for Tuesday night's overtime win against Montreal that snapped a five-game losing streak. The Hurricanes are sixth in the Metropolitan Division, 20 points behind division leader Pittsburgh and three behind the New York Rangers.

 

Gleason played for the silver-medal-winning United States team at the 2010 Winter Olympics, and twice in the past three years his teammates selected him as the club's Steve Chiasson Award winner for determination and dedication.

 

He's under contract through the 2015-16 season, having signed a four-year extension in July 2012 that will pay him $4.5 million both this season and next, and $3.5 million in the final year of the deal.

Liles also is under contract through 2015-16 at an average of $3.875 million per year.

 

It's the second trade of the week for Carolina, which sent forwardKevin Westgarth to Calgary on Monday in exchange for minor league forward Greg Nemisz.

 

The Hurricanes also picked up the rights to the 22-year-old Robertson, who has three goals and five assists during his senior season at Brown.

Is Gleason  the guy who sucker punched Kulimen in the face a couple of seasons ago? If so, I wonder how that is going to work in the dressing room.

It wasn't really a sucker punch, Kulemin was poking the bear.

 

And fine, it was in the heat of the moment. Probably water under the bridge.

OILERS DEAL DUBNYK TO PREDATORS; ACQUIRE SCRIVENS FROM KINGS

THE CANADIAN PRESS

1/15/2014 2:48:07 PM

The Edmonton Oilers have shaken up their goaltending, trading Devan Dubnyk to the Nashville Predators in exchange for forward Matt Hendricks and acquiring goaltender Ben Scrivens from the Los Angeles Kings for a third-round pick, according to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie.

 

Dubnyk was once considered the present and future in goal for Edmonton, and he went into the season as the starter.

 

Struggles early on led to the Oilers signing veteran free agent Ilya Bryzgalov, who was bought out last summer by the Philadelphia Flyers. In 32 games this season, the 27-year-old Dubnyk is 11-17-2 with a 3.36 goals-against average and .894 save percentage.

 

Bryzgalov becomes the de-facto starter in the wake of the deal. Richard Bachman, who has made three starts for the Oilers this season, is expected to be the back-up.

 

Dubnyk is the second Oilers goalie traded this year. They sent Jason LaBarbera to the Chicago Blackhawks last month for future considerations.

 

Hendricks, 32, has two goals and two assists in 44 games this season. He signed a $7.4 million, four-year deal with Nashville in the off-season.

 

Dubnyk enters an uncertain situation with the Predators, who are still without injured franchise goaltender Pekka RinneMarek Mazanec andCarter Hutton have split time in goal in Rinne's absence.

 

The Predators have not given a time frame on when they expect Rinne, who has a salary-cap hit of $7 million through the 2018-19 season, to return.

 

Dubnyk is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

TRADECENTRE: THURSDAY'S REPORTS FROM AROUND THE NHL

TSN.CA STAFF

1/16/2014 9:38:40 AM

 

The NHL's Mar. 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value.

Check out today's trade-related reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. And follow TSN.ca through Deadline Day for all the updates.

 

Kadri On The Move?

 

On 'Leafs Breakfast' on TSN Radio 1050 on Thursday, TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger said believes that Toronto Maple Leafs forwardNazem Kadri is available in trade discussions, but that the club is not eager to move him because of their weakness at the centre position.

 

"I have been told bluntly by Dave Nonis that he needs a centre in return," Dreger said. "Who is going to give you a better centre for one they think might develop into a better centre?

 

"This one is going to be crafty. I do think he gets moved this year, but it's going to be a delicate one."

 

Net Market

 

On NHL Network on Wednesday, Dreger added that he didn't believe the Carolina Hurricanes are actively shopping goaltender Cam Ward - but they could be intrigued by the possibility and it could take a significant offer to convince the team to move him.

 

He also said that Michal Neuvirth could be the odd man out with the Washington Capitals, but general manager George McPhee isn't calling around trying to move him.

 

Status Quo On Erat?

 

Chuck Gormley of Comcast SportsNet in Washington writes that Capitals winger Martin Erat has been scratched for a fourth straight game and his agent is still talking with McPhee about a deal, but nothing has changed in Erat's desire to be traded.

Trading for long term contracts now might be a smart risk for some teams. 7M seems like a lot now. But if the cap reaches 75-80M in a couple years. Suddenly that's not too bad for a good player. And other teams will be paying 8-10M per season for the same type of player on the open market due to the higher cap.

Gleason has been a great piece for us, a type of piece that we sorely needed. Not to mention Del Zotto would have costed us in the ballpark of a Gunnarsson...opposed to Liles who was just wasted cap space. Nodoubt Gleason was the better choice!

Oilers acquire Fraser from Maple Leafs

Friday, 01.31.2014 / 11:21 AM / News

NHL.com

 

The Edmonton Oilers added a veteran presence to their defense Friday, acquiring defenseman Mark Fraser from the Toronto Maple Leafs.

 

Fraser, 27, has one assist, a minus-8 rating and 33 penalty minutes in 15:12 of ice time in 19 games. He last played Jan. 9 and has been a healthy scratch in 19 of the Leafs' past 20 games.

 

He sustained a knee injury in the Leafs' second game of the season, Oct. 2 against the Philadelphia Flyers, and missed a month, and in November missed two games with a knee injury.

 

"I'm happy to get to play for another organization with extremely passionate fans," Fraser told the Oilers' website. "I'm very excited. I'm confident I can provide something the Oilers may be missing. ... Most of my success comes from my size and aggression."

 

Last season Fraser had eight assists and a plus-8 rating in 45 games and played in the Leafs' first four Stanley Cup Playoff games. He was injured in Game 4 against the Boston Bruins when he was hit in the head by a puck and missed the remainder of the postseason.

 

In parts of six seasons with the New Jersey Devils and Maple Leafs, Fraser has 17 points and a plus-12 rating in 162 games. He also has five games of Stanley Cup Playoff experience.

 

Going to the Leafs are a pair of forward prospects, Cameron Abney and the rights to Teemu Hartikainen.

 

Hartikainen, 23, was a 2008 sixth-round pick (No. 163) of the Oilers. He had one goal and two assists in 23 games with the Oilers last season, and in parts of three seasons with Edmonton had six goals and 13 points in 52 games. He's playing for Salavat Yulaev in the Kontinental Hockey League this season, where he has 13 goals and 27 points in 43 games.

 

Abney, 22, was a 2009 third-round pick (No. 82) of the Oilers. The 6-foot-5, 219-pounder has one goal and three assists in 20 games with the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL. He's also spent time with the Oilers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons, in his three professional seasons.
