The Los Angeles Kings are well on their way again to missing the playoffs for the 6th straight season.
While that likely means the team will be sellers at the upcoming trade deadline, the Kings this time seem poised to try something drastic to somehow expediate the development of the team.
The following are projected to be UFAs: Derek Armstrong, Kyle Calder, Denis Gauthier, Sean O’Donnell, Erik Ersberg.
According to nhlnumbers.com their cap number is $45 million.
The team wouldn’t mind as well moving Michal Handzus or Tom Preissing.
The talk of the town in Toronto is who should be moved on or prior to March 4th. Any player who has worn a blue and white jersey with any spec of trade value has been mentioned. So, I’d like to comment on players who I believe should not be traded.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Wings may be close to signing Henrik Zetterberg to along term deal. What this means for other teams is that it appears that Zetterberg may not be available in this summers free agency derby.
Sportsnet.ca is reporting that Ottawa Senators Jason Spezza is not on the trade block despite all of the speculation.
With the trade deadline fast approaching, it should be like clockwork for the St Louis Blues.
For the 4th straight year, the Blues will likely be sellers at the deadline as another bottom 5 finish awaits the team.
For the last few seasons since the lockout, the team has moved the likes of Doug Weight, Keith Tkachuk, Mike Sillinger, Eric Weinrich, Bill Guerin, Bryce Salvador, Christian Backman at the deadline for futures as they continue to build a core group of young players to hopefully bring a bright future to St Louis.
The Toronto Sun is reporting several big trade rumors that involve Keith Tkachuk, Mathieu Schneider and Maxim Afinogenov.
I have decided to post some of my thoughts on what the leafs should do to better there future…
Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun provides a ton of trade speculation in his latest article. His rumor roundup includes the following huge names, Lecavalier, St. Louis, Steven Stamkos, Daniel Briere, Erik Cole and more.
Boston, Montreal, Philly, Chicago, Florida all interested in Leaf assets
With the trade deadline lingering in the horizon, we can expect trade rumors to escalate in the coming weeks.
This is especially true for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
As likely sellers, the Leafs offer an assortment of players that opponent GMs will likely find enticing.

Joe Cutroni provides an inside look at who’s hot and who’s not around the Western Conference to give you the edge you need in your fantasy hockey league.
Jonathan Toews (C, CHI) has started to step up his game of late. He’s posted three goals and five points in his last five contests, and his fantasy value is still lower than what most owners envisioned it to be prior to the season, but Toews may be turning the corner after a dreadful start to the 2008-09 campaign.
The Oilers and Penguins have just swung a deal that has goalie Mathieu Garon going to the Penguins in exchange for Dany Sabourin, Ryan Stone and a 4th round pick.
The most rampant rumours of late have been about Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier.
Should he or shouldnt he be moved? There are definitely valid arguments for and against.
As you know, many teams are currently in financial troubles due to either the recession or the lack of a strong fan base.
Here’s a list of teams which should, for the sake of the NHL, be on the move. Sorry to Fans of these teams :
