Based on conversations I’ve had w/various NHL sources I’d say Stars F Ray Whitney very likely to be moved. Keep an eye on Coyotes and Kings.

Sources say Ryan Kesler requested a trade some time ago & wants out of Vcr. Told #Canucks don’t want to trade him but may not have a choice.

In Toronto, Dave Bolland is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. How are negotiations going there, and what are the chances he’s still a Maple Leaf on March 6?
Chris Phillips realizes Thursday could be his last game at Canadian Tire Centre as a member of the home team.
He doesn’t need the reminder he’ll get when he sees his old friend Daniel Alfredsson wearing a Detroit Red Wings jersey.
Nobody thought Alfredsson, a Senators’ lifer like Phillips, would ever leave the organization, right?
This assumes the Canucks, despite speculative reports, aren’t planning to trade Kesler.
A trade involving Kesler, widely coveted for his two-way game the way Canuck Trevor Linden was a generation ago, would cause a seismic shift in an organization whose core group of players has gone largely unchanged for years even as the team slips a little farther each season from its Stanley Cup final peak of 2011.
