Rumor Roundup: Kessel, Eriksson potential deadline scoring options, Ducks still looking for help

Rumor Roundup: Kessel, Eriksson potential deadline scoring options, Ducks still looking for help

Canda( By Lyle Richardson )The Tampa Bay Lightning’s suspension of unhappy left wing Jonathan Drouin has observers wondering about the effect this will have upon his trade value. Prior to suspending the 20-year-old over his refusal to play in the AHL until his trade request is honored, between 12 to 15 clubs reportedly had varying degrees of interest in the youngster. Drouin’s agent Allan Walsh claims the Lightning informed them a trade was close to completion, prompting their request that he no longer participate in AHL games to avoid injury. According to The Tampa Tribune’s Erik Erlendsson, that drew an icy denial from GM Steve Yzerman. “We never said that there was a pending deal or a deal close,” said Yzerman. The Lightning GM still claims trading Drouin is a priority, but it doesn’t put additional pressure upon him to get a deal done. Yzerman didn’t rule out a reconciliation, but that appears remote right now. Staging a holdout is the only card the Drouin camp has to play. He’s in the midst of an entry-level contract through 2016-17. However, his actions could hurt his trade value, raising questions about his character. PENGUINS SHOULD CONSIDER KESSEL MOVE Right wing Phil Kessel isn’t having the positive offensive impact the Pittsburgh Penguins envisioned when they acquired him last summer from the Toronto Maple Leafs. A five-time 30-goal scorer, the 28-year-old is on pace this season for around 25 goals and 50 points. SI.com’s Allan Muir notes Penguins GM Jim Rutherford’s recent dealing of left wing David Perron to the Anaheim Ducks for Carl Hagelin was essentially his admission that acquiring Perron a year ago was a mistake. Muir suggests Rutherford should do the same with Kessel, pointing to clubs like the Montreal Canadiens and Minnesota Wild are in need of scoring punch. Easier said than done. Kessel’s contract is a significant stumbling block. Even with the Leafs picking up $1.2 million of his $8-million annual cap hit, the Penguins are still carrying $6.8 million. That’s not easy to move during the season. Factor in Kessel’s offensive difficulties this season and his reputation (deserved or not) as a lazy, one-dimensional player, and trading him becomes more difficult. For better or worse, Kessel and the Penguins appear stuck with each other for the remainder of this season. ERIKSSON PRICING HIMSELF OUT OF BOSTON? In the coming weeks, Boston Bruins right wing Loui Eriksson could garner considerable attention in the rumor mill. TSN’s Darren Dreger reports the Bruins opened preliminary contract talks with the 30-year-old, who’s eligible for unrestricted free agency in July. Completing a six-year, $25.5-million contract, Eriksson is enjoying his best season in years. He’s within range of 30 goals and 70 points, becoming an invaluable two-way player for the Bruins in their quest to nail down a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Eriksson’s asking price, however, could determine if he has a long-term future in Boston. Dreger speculates his camp could seek a five-to-six year deal around $6 million annually. CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty believes that could be too expensive for the Bruins, suggesting they could peddle him for a defenseman like St. Louis’ Kevin Shattenkirk. Dreger thinks the Nashville Predators could be a destination. DUCKS STILL LOOKING TO ADD Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray continues to tinker with his roster. Earlier this month, he swapped Hagelin to the Penguins for Perron and minor-league defenseman Adam Clendening. On Thursday, Murray shipped struggling young winger Jiri Sekac to the Chicago Blackhawks for rugged forward Ryan Garbutt. Neither of those moves, however, suitably address the Ducks’ anemic offense. Hagelin and Perron had basically the same stats before their trade. Garbutt provides grit but isn’t much of a scorer. Before the Sekac-for-Garbutt swap, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman noted the Ducks were in the market for young forwards and could draw upon their blueline depth as trade bait. With Simon Despres and Cam Fowler expected to return to the lineup soon, and young Shea Theodore proving he belongs in the NHL, the Ducks are overloaded with young defensemen. For weeks, there’s been considerable speculation suggesting Murray could move a young d-man or two for a proven top-six scorer. If the Ducks fail to gain ground in the Western Conference playoff chase, he could pull the trigger for either a rental player or a longer-term acquisition before the trade deadline.

Amir should not be brought back for national duty, Inzamam tells PCB

Amir should not be brought back for national duty, Inzamam tells PCB

PAKISTAN(By Raja ibrar)Former Pakistan captain Inzamaul Haq advised Pakistan Cricket Board against including left-arm pacer Muhammad Amir in the national team saying that the dressing room environment will be disturbed.

Following Amir’s exceptional performance in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League for Chittagong Vikings, a debate has been sparked on whether the pacer will be brought back for national duty or not.

“I don’t think it would be a good idea to allow either Aamir or the two other players involved in the spot-fixing scandal back into the Pakistan team,” said Inzamam.

“I just feel that if Aamir is selected again for the national team it will divert the focus of the other players away from cricket and there will be added pressure on them and Aamir,” he added.

Former Pakistan captain went on to say, “I know from experience that if Aamir is selected in the Pakistan team and when it goes to England, Australia or even India the media will just focus on him and it will mean problems in the dressing room.”

Inzamam, who has played 120 tests and 398 one-day internationals for Pakistan, claimed that there was nothing personal in his demand but the PCB should have an independent policy on tainted players different from the International Cricket Council (ICC).

“The PCB needs to be clear in its stance on players who have been involved in corruption and tarnishing the image of the country. Because playing for the national team is the highest honour for any athlete,” said Inzamam.

Inzamam further said that it will not be easy for Amir also to make a return and not face pressure and problems.

“I can imagine the questions that would be asked if Pakistan lost a close match or if he couldn’t perform at the right time. I can imagine the taunts from the crowd and all these things will only divert the attention of the team away from cricket,” Inzamam added.

Amir’s BPL duty is the first time after the five-year ban that he has played outside Pakistan’s domestic structure. His domestic heroics were the reason that he was brought in to bowl outside the usual draft of players.

Pakistani veterans and stalwarts are divided on allowing Amir back into the national team but the left-armer has been making a strong case for himself with the ball lately

Pakistan should never Accept the offer to play cricket series in India

ISLAMABAD (Championspk) Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has on Monday said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play cricket series in India. He said that it is impossible for Pakistan to keep singing the ballads of friendship despite continuous hate-mongering from the Indian side,

Talking informally to media at Punjab House in Islamabad, Chaudhry Nisar said that India’s treatment was unfair with former Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shehryar Khan, PCB Chief Executive Najam Sethi and revered singer Ghulam Ali. “Why was there no action against anyone for such behaviour with Pakistanis in India?” questioned Nisar.

Pakistani Interior Minister said that Indian government was behind everything that happened to the Pakistani citizens in India. He said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play the cricket series in India. “It is Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s prerogative whether he wants to send the team to India or not but I will keep opposing such an act”, he added.

“It is impossible for us to keep singing the ballads of friendship while Indians continue war-mongering”, he said. Nisar added that Pakistan will raise the issue of declaring Shiv Sena as a terrorist organization on international level
