trick on Tuesday, giving
It appears that Alex Edler is going to remain with the Vancouver Canucks for the foreseeable future. Speaking at an event in Ottawa on Tuesday, Canucks president of hockey operations Trevor Linden said that the Canucks arent planning to ask the defenceman to waive his no-trade clause. According to The Vancouver Province, the Detroit Red Wings and Florida Panthers may have interest in the 28-year-old blueliner. "Hes got all the tools to be a dominant No. 1 defenceman," Linden told the paper. "Hed be the first to admit he didnt have a good year, and part of our job is to recapture the Alex Edler that we all know he can be. "He has the skill-set that every team wants and we just have to get him back where he should be." Edler struggled in 2013-14 after signing a six-year, $30 million contract with the Canucks prior the season. He was minus-39 with seven goals and 15 assists in 63 games and missed 16 games due to a lower-body injury. Linden said that the team knows it has an asset in Edler and is looking forward to better things from him. "There isnt a team in the league that wouldnt have its hand up for the opportunity to have an Alex Edler," he explained. "(Trading him) is not in our consideration. We want to work with Alex; we have to get his game back, and I know hes committed to doing that." For his part, Edler is up to improving heading into next season. "Im at my best when I dont think too much and just react out there and trust my instincts," Edler told the Province. "Thats something I have to get back to next year. "There were a lot of changes this year and a lot of new things to get used to. I didnt have the year that I should have had, but I know Im a good player. Im going to have to come back next year and do a better job at being better every game and being more consistent."

With newly minted president of hockey operations Trevor Linden looking on from above one day after being handed the keys to the franchise, it was more of the same on Thursday night. Assistant coach Glen Gulutzan said Thursday that Edler, who played Tuesday in Nashville, is out indefinitely.

Albers was named the Twins organizations minor league pitcher of the year for 2013.( - The New York Rangers hope to pick up where they left off before the Christmas break when they host the struggling New Jersey Devils in Saturdays Metropolitan Division clash at Madison Square Garden. The Devils, meanwhile, begin life without head coach Peter DeBoer, who was fired from his post on Friday. New Jersey general manager Lou Lamoriello told the media Saturday that the Devils will go forward with a unique coaching situation. Lamoriello said the Devils will use both Adam Oates and Scott Stevens behind the bench, with the former man handling the forwards and the latter taking charge of the defense, The Devils did not announce official titles for either Oates or Stevens and Lamoriello also said he also will be behind the bench for the time being. While Lamoriellos plan to replace DeBoer for the rest of the season is unorthodox, the decision to let the coach go was hardly surprising. The Devils are just 1-4-3 over their last eight games and find themselves nine points out of the final wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Over four seasons with New Jersey, DeBoer has compiled a 114-93-41 record and guided the team to the playoffs during the 2011 season, his first with the Devils. DeBoers best season in New Jersey was his first as he guided the team to a 48-28-6 record in 2011-12. The Devils represented the Eastern Conference in the Stanley Cup Finals, but lost to the Los Angeles Kings in six games. DeBoer was able to get the Devils a a point in his final game behind the Devils bench, as Jersey dropped a shootout decision Tuesday against visiting Carolina. New Jersey grabbed the early lead on Tuesday when Stephen Gionta gave the hosts a 1-0 edge with 6:28 left in the first. The score stayed that way until Ron Hainsey evened things for Carolina with 8:01 remaining in the third. Chris Terry then scored the lone goal of the shootout to give the Hurricanes a 2-1 victory and drop the Devils to 1-2-1 on their four-game homestand. Cory Schneider stopped 32 shots through regulation and overtime, but he took the loss after allowing Terry to score in the third round of the shootout. We wanted to finish strong before the break, said Devils winger Mike Cammalleri. Its a little disappointing right now for sure. Cammalleri returned Tuesday from a four-game absence that caused him to miss four games, but the Devils played without forwards Patrik Elias, Martin Havlat and Jacob Josefson. Elias and Havlat have been sidelined with the mumps, and are not available for tonight. Josefson is questionable with a strained groin. New Jerrsey will likely go with Schneider as the starter for the 33rd time this season.dddddddddddd The workhorse is 1-1-1 with a 1.79 GAA against the Rangers in his career. The Devils will try to halt a three-game road losing streak tonight, and are just 8-11-2 as the guest this season. New York earned its seventh consecutive victory and improved to 2-0 on a three-game homestand when it downed the Washington Capitals, 4-2, on Tuesday. The winning streak is the clubs longest since another seven-game run from Oct. 31-Nov. 15, 2011 and its also the longest current tear in the NHL. Another victory tonight would mark the franchises longest streak in four decades, as the club hasnt won eight in a row since Dec. 27, 1974-Jan. 11, 1975. The recent surge has helped push the Rangers into third place in the Metro. Tuesdays regulation win over the Capitals forged a tie for the divisions third and final automatic playoff berth, but New York holds the tiebreaker over Washington. Rick Nash recorded a hat trick on Tuesday, giving him 23 goals on the season, but his club had to hold off a late comeback attempt from the Capitals. Only Tyler Seguin has more goals (25) than Nash this season. Nashs second goal of the game made put New York ahead 3-0 at 5:12 of the third period, but Evgeny Kuznetsov tallied 41 seconds later for Washington. Alex Ovechkins power-play goal cut the deficit to 3-2 with 9:02 left in the third. The score would stay that way until Nash completed the hat trick with a power-play tally of his own with 3:48 remaining. Martin St. Louis added a power-play marker early in the second period for the Rangers, who went 2-for-7 on the man advantage. Derek Brassard had three assists and Mats Zuccarello chipped in two helpers for New York. Henrik Lundqvist earned the victory with 30 saves, with 19 of those stops coming in the final period. The team is playing good, we are winning games, and its a great feeling in here, St. Louis said. We did a good job of going out there and earning it every day. Weve taken nothing for granted. We take care of the opponents and we play seriously and weve been rewarded with some good plays. Lundqvist is expected to get the start tonight. The Swedish star boasts a 31-14-6 record, 1.89 goals against average, .931 save percentage and eight shutouts in his career against the Devils. As a team, New York has won three straight and six of the last nine meetings in this series. The Devils have taken two straight in NYC, but the Rangers are 11-5-3 at home this season after winning their last three at the Garden. ' ' '
