Could the Oilers trade Ryan Smyth?

Darren Dreger: Sam Gagner, we know. Ales Hemsky, we know. Ryan Smyth is expected. There’s no dialog between Craig MacTavish and Ryan Smyth. The belief is that Smyth wants one more crack with a winning team to see if he can win the Stanley Cup. He’s still effective, at least in the offensive zone, so I expect his name will heat up as we get closer to the deadline.

Will Blackhawks be in market for second-line center?

Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman has never been shy to pull the trigger on a trade. But with the Blackhawks playing as one of the NHL’s top teams, is there a move out there that can make the defending champs even better?

New York Rangers Taking Calls on Ryan Callahan

According to a source close to the situation, Ryan Callahan, the U.S.A Olympian and the captain of the Rangers could be calling a new city home for the remainder of the season. The reason? The team doesn’t feel he will be worth the salary — currently making $4.825-million with a cap hit of $4.275-million — he will likely demand as an unrestricted free agent over the summer, and Sather is hopeful that he will be able to get a decent return if he can trade him before the March 5 trade deadline.

Plenty of teams focused on Flames

With a number of players set to become free agents this summer, the Flames have plenty of attractive pieces available for rent.

Forwards Michael Cammalleri, Lee Stempniak and Matt Stajan, and defenseman Kris Russell are among Calgary’s pending unrestricted free agents, all of whom could moved by the deadline.
