Trade talks heating up for Fleury, Kane?

The TSN Hockey Insiders provide more details about Brent Burns’ big eight-year deal with the Sharks, discuss whether Marc-Andre Fleury will be on the move before March 1, the Sabres seeking a blueliner for Evander Kane, and the Leafs searching the trade market for a shutdown defenceman.

Could the Blues fire Hitchcock?

NHL: Henrik Lundqvist Kept in the Dark about Rule Changes, is Not Happy

 

Henrik Lundqvist isn’t happy with the NHL, and for good reason. The fact that they have enacted changes that could have a drastic impact on his livelihood, and possibly even the success of the Rangers’ efforts to take the Stanley Cup, isn’t that surprising.

Sports Leagues make changes to the way games are played all the time. The problem for Henrik emanates from the fact that they didn’t warn him ahead of time. And Henrik isn’t just another NHL player. He is the face of one of their biggest franchises.

Sabres looking to trade Kane

Mike Harrington: Evander Kane hears the trade talk. He’s just looking for goals

The latest tempest is whether or not Kane is staying in Buffalo. His hometown team, the Vancouver Canucks, has been on the prowl for him but the timing of a trade is quite odd. Kane has no goals in seven games since returning from the rib injuries he suffered in the season opener and still has another year left on his contract at a cap hit of $5.25 million.

Could the Canucks move Burrows?

Burrows has eyes on playoffs, Cup contenders may have eyes on him

Burrows would command considerable interest from Stanley Cup contenders as a rental in return for a draft pick. He has a history of scoring big post-season goals and is fiercely loyal, competitive and combative.

It’s difficult to imagine contenders like the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens wouldn’t have trade-deadline interest in Burrows. He has scored 19 goals in 70 playoff games. He could be reunited with Alain Vigneault for another Cup quest and playing for his hometown Canadiens would certainly cap an amazing beating-the-odds career. Run all that by Burrows and he sees where you’re coming from.
