Buffalo Sabres co-captain and forward Chris Drury is out indefinately with a possible concussion. Drury left the ice and did not return in yesterday’s wild game between the Senators and Sabres. Buffalo’s head coach Lindy Ruff complained that the hit from the Senators Chris Neil on Drury was an elbow to the head. However the NHL has reviewed the hit today and ruled it clean, handing out no suspensions or fines on the play. The Sabres and Sens meet again on Saturday. Who knows what to expect, but im sure that it will be the most watched game that night.

In an odd move for a player who hasn’t played in the NHL for three years, the San Jose Sharks have acquired Alexander Korolyuk from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a third round pick.
Sources tell TSN the Nashville Predators have agreed to trade Scottie Upshall, Ryan Parent, a 1st round pick and a 3rd round pick to the Philadelphia Flyers for Peter Forsberg. The deal will not be official until the completion of a trade call with the NHL. Forsberg was on the ice for warm-up for Thursday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, but he was scratched from the lineup.
Edit: According to Sportsnet, the 3rd Rounder would be conditional to Forsberg re-signing with Nashville. If not, it would become a 6th rounder. Thanks to Kamullia for pointing that out.
The Phildelphia Flyers have signed Sami Kapanen to a 2-year contract extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
According to TSN, Ray Emery’s slash on Maxim Lapierre was reviewed by the NHL and they decided to suspend Emery for three games.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Peter Forsberg is said to be down to 3 teams that would make him renounce his no-trade clause…
According to TSN.ca Denis Hamel has been put on waivers. This guy should be snatched up pretty fast.

Well that’s it the Rangers season is turning around now…..and they should win the cup… yeah that’ll happen now.
The Avery move was good, already going to be a fan favorite as long as stupid penalties don’t happen.
But the Rangers need something to change and Dupuis isn’t it.
Here are the partial results for the HTR STANDINGS CONTEST. Go inside to see where you are ranked.
Forget the March of the Penguins, this is an all out Blitzkrieg.
They have just handed Nashville, the best team in the league, their hats and literally kick them out the door. In there own building no less!
With the recent success of the Pittsburgh Penguins I wonder just how far they can go.
Tonight, Avs defenseman Karlis Skrastins played in his 486th consecutive game which ties him with Tim Horton for the longest consecutive games streak by a defensemen in NHL history. He can break the record Thursday night against Atlanta.
Sergei Samsonov’s agent confirmed to the Journal de Montreal that his client wants out of Montreal and would like to be traded prior to the February 27th deadline.
I’m posting this more as a fun topic, I am not “crying” or “whining” it was simply an email I received and thought it was “oh so true” and worthy of posting on this Maple Leafs board. But I’m sure many anti-Leaf fans will (as always) be on here ready to bash….kinda makes you wonder why they’re checking the “Leafs Rumor” Board though.
Everyone talked about how boring last years NHL trade deadline was. But was it really all that bad considering what happened in years previous?
According to TSN and RDS, Blackhawks traded Brandon Bochenski to Bruins for a conditional draft pick and forward Kris Versteeg….
One had to wonder where this rumor came from and why someone would think it makes sense. But if you go to the TSN website and look at their trade deadline rumor list there it is the first player listed.
Although the Leafs are playing some good hockey right now, they need to think about their future.
