Canucks to buy out David Booth, Canadiens re-sign Dale Weise, Senators talk contract with Milan Michalek, Flames seek a goaltending coach and an update regarding two key Hockey Night in Canada personnel. 

VANCOUVER PROVINCE: The Canucks yesterday placed winger David Booth on waivers with the intent of buying him out on Wednesday.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: It’s a wise decision. They have one compliance buyout remaining and must free up cap space to rebuild their roster. Booth has a long injury history and there’s no guarantee he can play the full 82-games next season.

MONTREAL GAZETTE: The Canadiens have re-signed forward Dale Weise to a two-year contract worth $2 million.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The acquisition of Weise scarcely drew attention last season but he proved a valuable addition for the Habs, especially in the playoffs.

OTTAWA CITIZEN: Ken Warren reports the Senators are in the midst of contract talks with pending UFA winger Milan Michalek.

CALGARY SUN: The Flames are in the market for a new goaltending coach. Clint Malarchuk won’t be returning next season.

SPORTSNET.CA: Elliotte Friedman and Scott Oake have joined Rogers NHL broadcast team. They will continue to appear on Hockey Night in Canada.

    Nice contract for Weise I hated that deal at first, but he did prove to be a great pick up.

    Figured Rogers would have to take Friedman, he is one of the best covering the sport imo. Hopefully he gets a little bigger of a role with the new format.

    • Tydgo says:

      Agreed. Friedman instantly becomes the most credible member of Sportsnet’s staff.

      • KevJam says:

        I agree about Friedman, but Oake asks some of the dumbest and some of the most obvious questions. Could have done without him.

    What about dan cloutier as goal tending coach
