Rangers Rumors

Would Sather deal Hagelin, 25 and with one more season on his contract at a $2.25 million cap hit leading into restricted free agency, for, say, Jets captain Andrew Ladd, 28 and with two more years on his deal at $4.4M cap hit leading into unrestricted free agency (and, it must be noted, a modified no-trade clause)?

Calgary Flames fielding plenty of offers for Mike Cammalleri

Mike Cammalleri might want to hold off on purchasing any real estate in Calgary. He is most likely on the move.

With the NHL trade deadline set for March 5, many league executives view the 31-year-old Cammalleri as one of the most attractive options available for teams that want a forward who can make an impact.

Leafs GM: ‘We’d be willing to trade Nazem Kadri’

Somewhat curiously, the name of Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri made its way into the rumor mill earlier this season when it was suggested the Leafs would be willing to trade him.

That portion of the mill isn’t going to stop spinning after Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis made an appearance on TSN Radion in Toronto on Thursday. He talked about the potential of trades with a couple of the names that have been mentioned with Kadri of course being one of them.

Could the Stars look to move Ray Whitney and defenceman Sergei Gonchar.

Bob McKenzie: Two names that you might hear out there are a couple of veterans from the Dallas Stars and maybe those players are actually hoping to hear their names in trade rumours: We’re talking about veteran forward Ray Whitney and defenceman Sergei Gonchar.

Leafs will need a center if they trade Kadri

Which NHL teams will supply players for trade deadline?

With seven weeks to go before the March 5 NHL trade deadline, USA TODAY Sports columnist Kevin Allen looks at seven teams that might feed the marketplace:

Who the Stars could make available if they’re out of playoff race by trade deadline

Mike, the trade deadline is soon approaching. It looks like the Stars will probably be sellers. Who goes and what can we get in return?

It’s tough, but I like to look at last season. They moved Morrow and Jagr and Roy and ended up getting some nice prospects in Joe Morrow, Cody Payne, Kevin Connauton and Cameron Gaunce. I think Vern Fiddler would definitely be dangled, and I think they would ask if Whitney or Cole want to be traded (they have no-trade clauses). They might even look into Daley or Goligoski if there is a market out there. We’ll have to wait and see.

Could the Canucks make a deal for Steve Ott?

The Buffalo Sabres are in danger of losing not one (Thomas Vanek) but two of the co-captains with whom they began the 2013-14 season. Brad May, however, believes, Steve Ott, a pending UFA, will remain in Buffalo past the deadline due to his relationship with new coach Ted Nolan. Mark Spector thinks Ott will be shopped to a contender for a prospect or pick; he sees the Vancouver Canucks as the best fit here: http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/hc-trade-tracker-steve-ott/

Hemsky to Senators rumours

Should the Jets trade a core player for a goalie?

It is GM’s Kevin Cheveldayoff’s mandate to improve Winnipeg’s goaltending. Ondrej Pavelec is under contract for three more seasons, but the 26-year-old Pavelec is showing no signs of changing who he is: an up-and-down goalie who undermines the three saves he shouldn’t make with the one stop he should. Winnipeg’s identity is high-tempo, offense-first skill. Mistakes will happen in those types of systems. Pavelec isn’t good enough to negate them. There are goaltending options.
