TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie, Pierre LeBrun and Darren Dreger gathered for the latest installment of Insider Trading and the topics discussed were the Buffalo Sabres GM search, trade talk around the league, and which junior-eligible players in the NHL could be loaned to Team Canada for the World Juniors. What is the latest news coming out of Buffalo regarding the Sabres General Manager hunt? Bob McKenzie: The Buffalo Sabres have asked for permission from the Boston Bruins to talk to assistant manager Jim Benning about the vacant Sabres GM job and the permission has been granted. Im also hearing that Lafontaines profile for the job is that hes lking for young assistant GM types throughout the NHL. Weve heard Jason Botterills name in Pittsburgh, Brad Trelivings name in Phoenix, Paul Fentons name in Nashville. That might mean a guy like Rick Dudley, whos been a GM in the NHL before doesnt necessarily fit the profile of what Buffalo is currently lking for. With American Thanksgiving nearing, are you hearing any talk on the trade front? Darren Dreger: We are hearing some interesting names that are starting to surface. Two of them that come to mind are Brayden Schenn of the Phildadelphia Flyers and Michael Del Zotto of the New York Rangers. Now the Flyers arent trying to push out Schenn – they may want to push out his brother Luke – but what theyve told teams quietly is that if there is the right deal available, if they can find the right fit, then absolutely they would include Brayden Schenn in a trade scenario. And we know Paul Holmgren likes to make that big blockbuster deal. As for Del Zotto and the Rangers, hes not having a gd year, playing well behind Ryan McDonagh and Marc Staal on the left side, so hes a third-pairing defenceman. He could probably embrace a change and were told that at least five or six teams have inquired about scenarios. Pierre LeBrun: I think one of those teams is the Ottawa Senators. Theyve had this mystifying start, theyve been so inconsistent and Im told one of their top priorities on the trade market between now and the trade deadline is to find another puck-moving defenceman and Del Zotto is on that list of players on their radar. But its money in, money out with the Senators with the situation with ownership. A quick update on Pekka Rinne. LeBrun: Hes going to have an MRI on his hip again next week and thats a big one for Nashville. If it comes back clear, they hang on and wait for him to come back. If it isnt, it certainly heats up trade talks for Nashville. There are five junior-eligible players in the NHL. We dont think Nathan MacKinnon will be offered to Team Canada for the World Juniors, what about the other four? McKenzie: Sean Monahan of the Calgary Flames lks like an extreme longshot but the Flames arent necessarily closing the dr on that – theyll make a decision on that closer to the time it needs to be made in mid to late December. As far as Matt Dumba goes with the Minnesota Wild, I think hes the guy thats most likely to be loaned to Team Canada, but again Minnesota wont make that decision until they check their injury situation. Right now Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Morgan Rielly lks like an extreme longshot and Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals, even though hes playing fourth line minutes there for Adam Oates, the Capitals seem to feel that putting him on a big ice international tournament would probably interrupt his pro apprenticeship and probably not be in his best interest. Hes highly unlikely so not a lot of help on the NHL front on the horizon; Dumba seems like the most likely candidate. LeBrun: And sticking with international hockey, the Russians caused a little bit of a kerfuffle over the past week by saying “What about this Olympic roster deadline on December 31st? Wed like to name a partial roster and name the rest of the roster before the Olympics.” The NHL, NHLPA, and IIHF said, “No, nothing has changed on that front, its a hard deadline for the full roster.” Except that the IIHF council meets next week and the Russians are expected to press their case once again there. Francisco Liriano Jersey . Compared to what hes gone through in recent weeks, that seemed like a breeze. Speaking to The Associated Press on Friday at an NBA Cares event, Silver said hes thrilled that the leagues attention can be on the championship series between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs -- and not, as it was for so much of the post-season, on the off-the-court matters involving the banishment of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and now the lming sale of that franchise.

The Jets parted ways with wide receiver Santonio Holmes on Monday, cutting the talented but injury-plagued playmaker after four seasons. The move, which had been expected, saves the Jets $8.25 million, which Holmes was due to make as his base salary this season. He was also scheduled to have a $10.75 million cap number, a lofty total for a one-time Super Bowl MVP who has struggled with injuries and inconsistency the last two seasons. The Jets also released cornerback Antonio Cromartie on Sunday, clearing $17.75 million of salary cap space before the NFLs free agency period starts Tuesday. New York could also save another $8.3 million if they cut quarterback Mark Sanchez, who missed last season with a shoulder injury. Holmes, who turned 30 last Monday, had 23 catches -- the second-lowest total of his career -- for 456 yards and a touchdown in 11 games last season. He missed five games midway through the season with a hamstring injury. Holmes played in just four games in 2012 and was sidelined for several months after suffering a career-threatening ft injury. In December, Holmes said he would be willing to restructure his contract to remain a member of the Jets, adding that how much of a pay cut hed be asked to take probably wouldnt play into his decision to want to stay. "I appreciate Tones contributions over the last four seasons," coach Rex Ryan said in a statement. "Ive always admired his knack for making the clutch play. Hes a tremendous competitor who wants the ball in his hands when the game is on the line. I wish him nothing but the best." Holmes signed a five-year, $45 million deal before the 2011 season after a solid first year with the Jets, who acquired him from Pittsburgh for a fifth-round draft pick. He agreed to restructure his conttract in March 2012, when he tk a $3.dddddddddddd5 million cut to his scheduled base salary of $11 million for last season. Holmes was a controversial figure at times during his tenure with the Jets, butting heads with Sanchez and the teams offensive linemen during the 2011 season. In the season finale at Miami, he got into an argument with offensive tackle Wayne Hunter in the huddle and was benched for the rest of the game. The mercurial wide receiver also had a contentious relationship with the media, keeping his answers short during most group interviews. He inadvertently made headlines last season when he called Carolinas secondary the Panthers defences "weakest link" while trying to credit the unit -- but providing bulletin board for an opponent that went out and beat the Jets 30-20. Holmes was a first-round draft pick by the Steelers out of Ohio State in 2006 and was selected the Super Bowl MVP in his third season after he caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger with 35 seconds left to lead Pittsburgh past Arizona. He had his best statistical performance the following season with 79 catches for 1,248 yards and five touchdowns. But Holmes was traded to the Jets the following off-season after the Steelers tired of his numerous legal troubles. Holmes was suspended for his first four games with the Jets for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy, but quickly became one of the teams primary playmakers when he returned. He played a key role in three straight wins with big catches late in games, prompting Ryan to label those types of clutch moments as "Tone Time." He also helped lead the Jets to their second straight AFC title game appearance, in which they lost to Holmes former team. Holmes has 381 career catches for 5,963 yards and 36 touchdowns in eight NFL seasons. ' ' '
