According to Edmonton radio host and Oilers analyst Bob Stauffer, the Montreal Canadiens or Pittsburgh Penguins — two Eastern Conference clubs known to be looking for help up front — might be interested in Edmonton’s Ales Hemsky. The veteran winger has a chance to showcase his skills in Sochi, but only registered a single assist in 30 minutes of ice time through the Czech Republic’s first three games.
The Canadiens have reportedly turned down a trade that would have sent Colorado Avalanche forward P.A. Parenteau to Montreal in exchange for winger Rene Bourque, according to Louis Jean of TVA Sports.
The Montreal Canadiens may be in the thick of the Atlantic Division playoff race but that might not mean they won’t look to move some players out before the deadline.
Randy Miller of NJ.com makes a case for the New Jersey Devils to acquire veteran winger Daniel Briere from the Montreal Canadiens, saying that Briere may not be happy with his playing situation in Montreal, could be a top-line centre with the Devils and would be closer to his sons who live in Haddonfield, New Jersey.
Briere was the name mentioned in trade rumors with the Buffalo Sabres in the early evening. Rumors emanating from Toronto that involved Steve Ott.
