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.
If it sounds like the Senators are taking a cautious approach on what they’ll do next, they are. Murray and his staff need to decide what they are willing to pay to get a rental and do they need someone for the playoff push alone?
“We identified what our team is right now and possible targets for possible trades,” said Dorion.
It’s only natural at this time of year that rumors and whispers kick up about potential trade scenarios.
That’s exactly what happened when Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish and team president Kevin Lowe showed up to take in the Bruins-Flyers Saturday matinee at the Wells Fargo Center yesterday.
Pittsburgh general manager Ray Shero loaded up at last year’s trade deadline, adding Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, Doug Murray, and Jussi Jokinen. It wasn’t the first time Shero complemented his roster before the deadline. In 2011, the Penguins brought back Alex Kovalev. In 2010, they added Alexei Ponikarovsky and Jordan Leopold. In 2009, Shero acquired Bill Guerin. It won’t be easy for Shero this year to land veteran help. In previous years, the Penguins had cap space to fold in contracts.
Ryan Miller’s days in Buffalo are likely numbered.
While Sabres general manager Tim Murray is still trying to get the lay of land after taking over the post earlier this month, the whispers are getting louder that Miller won’t be sticking around after the trade deadline and there’s a school of thought he could be gone before the Olympic break.
