Boyes on the move?

Brad Boyes leads Florida with 14 goals. He will be an unrestricted free agent at year’s end. The Panthers are 8 points outside of the final playoff spot.

Not much trade talk as time will determine if they buy, sell or stand pat

Will the Detroit Red Wings buy, sell or stand pat this season?

That likely will be determined closer to the March 5 trading deadline, not the Feb. 7 trading deadline.

The latest on Thomas Vanek

Thomas Vanek is nearing a decision, according to his agent. Which means the Islanders are nearing a decision on whether Vanek, their big early-season acquisition, will be on the move again before the March 5 trade deadline.

Rangers shopping captain Ryan Callahan

One player whose name I would have never predicted to even possibly be in the mix before the season is that of New York Rangers captain Ryan Callahan.

from tsn.ca – Are we going to see some kind of mini-trade deadline prior to the freeze on February 7?

LeBrun: What’s happened this week is that I’ve had teams tell me that the bubble teams have started to send their lists out and say “If we pull the plug right before the Olympic break, here is the list of players that we’re willing to move,” so keep that in mind.

Report: Canadiens reject deal for Avs’ Parenteau

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.

Ottawa Senators in no rush to make a deal before Olympic break

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.

Source: D-men trade target ‘pickings are slim’
