What’s another day without a fresh new Maple Leaf trade rumor?

TFP is reporting that the New York Islanders are interested in acquiring Leaf defenseman Bryan McCabe.

Flyers Trade for Modry

The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired Jaroslav Modry from LA for a 3rd rounder. Don’t know how much this helps. Flyers are loaded with average defensemen and need a great puck mover. Don’t know how much Modry will solve any problems. Thought they were more in the market for Campbell or Kaberle. Maybe this is a set up move for something else…i sure hope so.

Report: Red Wings Interested in Kings' D Brad Stuart

Three Red Wings scouts were in St. Louis to watch the Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 12, leading rumor-mongers to heat up the speculation that Detroit GM Ken Holland is really, really interested in L.A. defenseman Brad Stuart. But this part of scouting is just due diligence on the part of the Wings’ GM and his staff in case he can find a bargain to make his team stronger going into the playoffs (To me, LA d-man Jaroslav Modry would fit in Detroit’s lineup better and would be much less expensive.).

According to Philadelphia Flyers GM Paul Holmgren, Peter Forsberg will make the announcement of whether or not he will return to the NHL and, presumably, the name of the team for which he will be playing.
