With the NHL Draft coming up on June 27 and free agency opening on July 1, discussions between NHL general managers will be heating up over the month of June. Shayne Corson Jersey . Each day this month, TSN.ca will provide the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Centre Market Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail reports the Anaheim Ducks will likely be in the market for one of the top three centres expected to be available via trade this off-season in Jason Spezza, Ryan Kesler, and Joe Thornton. Duhatschek also breaks down how each of these players would fit with the Ducks. Waiting Game According to Adrian Dater of the Denver Post, contract talks between the Colorado Avalanche and centre Paul Stastny will likely not restart before June 20. The Avalanche tried to work something out at the trade deadline and are still optimistic a deal can be made before Stastny becomes an unrestricted free agent. Coaching Carousel Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province speculates that recently-fired Dan Bylsma could be the frontrunner for the Canucks head coaching vacancy. While in Carolina, GM Ron Francis is considering much as seven candidates for their coaching vacancy, including Bylsma, according to a report from newsobserver.com. And in Pittsburgh, where Bylsma coached last year, the Post-Gazette lists another seven candidates for their open spot. Tweaks in Boston? According to Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com, sources say the Boston Bruins may be willing to wheel and deal ahead before free agent season opens. Forward Brad Marchand and defenceman Johnny Boychuk are two players who could be traded to open up some salary cap space to re-sign the likes of Reilly Smith, Torey Krug, Matt Bartkowski, Shawn Thornton, Jarome Iginla (or another player to replace him on the line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic). Currently, the Bruins have $9 million to spend but dealing Marchand and Boychuk would free up over $8 million more. Looking for defence Ansar Khan of MLive.com speculates on who the Detroit Red Wings could target when looking to add defencemen this off-season. While he believes the team would love Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators, if made available in a trade, he also lists some more reasonable targets on the free agent market. Minor Changes Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports the Chicago Blackhawks are likely to stay the course with their roster this off-season save for a few minor changes. Shinzawa reports the Blackhawks could be looking for a taker for winger Kris Versteeg, who was a healthy scratch in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final, and will be looking for a replacement for centre Michal Handzus. Chris Pronger Blues Jersey . If one fighter gases, he usually gets beat up pretty bad from that point on. Shayne Corson Blues Jersey . -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with cornerback Kelvin Hayden.Los Angeles Kings 3, Winnipeg Jets 1 (Jets 30-27-7, home 15-12-5) - The win makes it six straight for the Kings since the Olympic break, a team that won once in 10 games before the break. The loss drops the Jets to three points back of Dallas for the final spot in the Western Conference. No scoring in the first period but it was a good start for the Jets, who jumped out to a 6-2 lead on the shots clock, but helped by a power play the Kings started to take the game over and outshot the Jets 11-7. Through part of the first and into the second the Jets went 17:52 without a shot on goal, but Olli Jokinens 15th of the year put the Jets in front 1-0. Good hustle by Evander Kane set up the goal, with Mark Stuart also drawing an assist. It was the third straight game the Jets have scored first, Jokinen opening the scoring in Nashville, Andrew Ladd opening the scoring against the Islanders. But the lead only lasted 42 seconds before Dustin Brown, in tight on Ondrej Pavelec, tied the game. Mike Richards picked off a cross ice pass and wired one past Pavelec at 16:15 to give the Kings the lead. Kings are 18-0 this season when leading after two. Shots in the second were 10-6, Los Angeles. In the third, the Kings showed why they need to be considered one of the power houses in the Western Conference. Kings outshot the Jets 20-5 in the third, and if not for Pavelec, the Kings would have skated their way to a route. Pavelec made one outstanding save after another and not until a power play goal by Alec Martinez at 15:51 was the game put away. Final shots were 41-18. It was the first time in five games this year Pavelec has lost when facing 40 or more shots. Kevin Shattenkirk Blues Jersey. Pavelec was the games first star.

Dustin Byfuglien led in hits with five, including a first period hit on Jake Muzzin that put the Kings defenceman into the Jets bench. Coach Paul Maurice had this to say post game. "I liked the speed of the game that we started the game with. Then we ran into the LA Kings at their best. They will take your game and frustrate you to the point that you would start to change what youre trying to do, because theres nothing given easily. We started to do things without your feet moving and you cant do that against them. I was left with the thought there are two kinds of confidence in hockey, and its individual confidence in a player that comes and goes at times. Second a style of play to handle these games. We needed to hold the lead longer than we did. Its dangerous to evaluate your offensive game against that team."  On the loss, "The fact you are chasing hurts more when you lose." Jets play Ottawa Saturday afternoon (TSN 1290) at MTS Centre, then head to Colorado for a game Monday. Its a single trip before they return home for three - against Vancouver, the Rangers and Dallas. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
