By LANCE HORNBY, Toronto Sun

Brian Burke advises all fellow general managers who truly believe they’re on the verge of a Stanley Cup to go for that last key trade and to hang with the cost.

And if you’re going to deal, don’t forget that phone number, 1-800-GO-BURKE, or stop on by at 40 Bay St.

Poni on the express out of Toronto?

A year after Nik Antropov was shipped out of Toronto, will his buddy Alexei Ponikarovsky also be on the move come the March trade deadline?

If Maple Leafs president Brian Burke does, in fact, hold on to slick puck-moving defenceman Tomas Kaberle, there are indications from around the league that Ponikarovsky would be the one remaining Toronto player who would fetch the most in a deal.

Turco may not be in Stars' long-term plans

Mike Heika

I know it doesn’t matter in the real world of sports, but I like Marty Turco.
He’s a good guy who does a lot of good things for a lot of people. He donates time and money to charity. He believes it’s part of his job to sell the South on hockey. He finds ways to make his job fun.

Price Has to Be Right for Bruins to Go After Ilya Kovalchuk

The 2010 NHL trading deadline is less than two months away, but one player that has been mired in trade rumors all season has been Atlanta Thrashers sniper Ilya Kovalchuk. The 26-year-old forward is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Kovalchuk deal may tempt Isles

The Islanders have managed to become relevant this season, despite the absence of an established goal scorer.

But GM Garth Snow may be in the market to change that, if Atlanta’s star left wing Ilya Kovalchuk is made available before the March 3 trade deadline, a source told The Post yesterday.

Svatos on the block

Talking to some sources around the league of late, and one thing has been brought to my attention: Marek Svatos is definitely available at a decent offer. Maybe just an OK offer. He’s a guy in the last year of his contract, making pretty good money, who isn’t playing right now and wants to play. So this is no huge scoop, but there are some talks going on between the Avs and a few teams with some interest.

Senators GM sets sights on centre


Senators GM Bryan Murray is looking to add a centre to help get the team out of its scoring doldrums.

As the Senators continue their five-game road trip tonight against the Thrashers and struggle to hang onto a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, two league executives told the Sun yesterday that Murray is trying to deal for a centre.
