NHL Trade Rumours: Habs, Pens like Hemsky?

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.

BYE-BYE MARTY


You’ll probably be hearing and reading a lot about Martin Brodeur over the next two weeks because his history-making two decades with the Devils could be coming to an end. Brodeur was platooning in goal for most of the season with Cory Schneider, but now is a 41-year-old backup who sat six games in a row and eight of nine before the break.

Predators interested in Gagner

he Nashville Predators will be looking to fine-tune their roster before the March 5 trade deadline and in the off-season, as they work towards competing next season.

As Predators GM David Poile continues to mend after being struck in the face with a puck prior to the Olympic break, management understands its position this season.
The Predators have been actively shopping center David Legwand, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Could the Preds move Weber this Summer?

The way Nashville general manager David Poile stocked up with younger defensemen this season seems to indicate the Predators may be willing to part with Shea Weber’s gargantuan contract this summer. Wouldn’t surprise anyone. If that happens, you can be certain the Flyers will be a major player.

Could the Blues move Chris Stewart?

Nothing much went down on the trade deadline before the roster freeze.

Part of it was economics, since the players are due a paycheck during the Olympic break. Part of it was concern about injuries that could occur during the competition in Sochi.
