Halak’s recent poor play sparks the Miller to St. Louis rumors again

That was tough luck for Halak, but we’ve seen that before. Games turn quickly when pucks find their way into the net.

“All of a sudden it evaporates,” Blues coach Ken Hitchcock acknowledged during his postgame news conference. “Jaro had a tough night.”

Halak could have made amends in the shootout, but he didn’t. A big point got away from the Blues in startling fashion.

Rumblings: Will Vanek be moved soon?

Among the teams keeping tabs on the Vanek situation are the Los Angeles Kings, although a source Tuesday suggested he might not be their top target. My guess is that would be Matt Moulson, although as reported before, Sam Gagner and Mike Cammalleri are also options for L.A.

Leafs’ Dave Bolland on trade block?

The future of Dave Bolland, and whether it’s with the Maple Leafs, should become clear in the coming weeks.

Certainly, we’ll know before the NHL trade deadline on March 5.

Report: Preds are attempting to trade Legwand

David Legwand doesn’t carry the name recognition or flash that a trade target like Thomas Vanek does, but the Nashville Predators hope to score a quality asset for him anyway. At least, that’s the word from TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings have talked “very seriously” about a Sam Gagner trade

This just in, Hockey Night in Canada’s top hockey reporter Elliotte Friedman  on the Fan 960 in Calgary: “The one move, I kind of hear, has been talked about to some degree and looked close at one point, although I don’t know what happened, is Sam Gagner, and I think L.A. has some interest in him.

Coyotes notes: Could The Coyotes bring back Whitney?

So with Whitney in town to face the Coyotes on Tuesday at Jobing.com Arena, and with the Coyotes facing his Stars two times in the next three games, the speculation has begun that Phoenix might consider bringing The Wizard back to add a little scoring punch for a playoff push.

Gallagher: There’s hope for the Canucks, but it only comes via trade

Consider for a moment if this team could, for argument’s sake, get into the running for a player like Thomas Vanek. Re: a winger who could score and would have a chance of playing well with the twins in their years to come in this uniform.

Are the Canucks getting ready to trade Edler?

Vancouver gets another defenceman in the Raphael Diaz for Dale Weise trade but isn’t that an overabundance? Does this lead us to believe the Canucks will deal a defenceman at some point?

McKenzie: Everybody assumes that this is the precursor to moving one of their veteran defencemen; getting Alex Edler to waive his no-trade clause or what have you.

Leafs’ secondary scoring resurgence leaves trade-deadline questions

Joffrey Lupul and Nazem Kadri are leading a resurgence of secondary scoring for the Leafs — but will it be enough to carry the team past the upcoming Olympic roster freeze and trade deadline?

 

Possibly yes, and possibly no.
