According to this article (http://hokej.idnes.cz/martin-erat-odchod-z-washingtonu-nhl-hokej-fjt-/nhl.aspx?c=A131125_120725_nhl_cig) Martin Erat wants out of Washington.

While he would never admit it, Kings GM Lombardi has been sniffing around Sabres goalie Ryan Miller

If Miller does decide he wants to move on — and the belief is he wants to go to the Western Conference — a league source says there’s a team that may interest Miller looking for a goalie: The Los Angeles Kings.

Will the Rangers or Penguins make a push for Cammalleri

Calgary Flames winger Mike Cammalleri’s old agent is Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis, but I’d say the Pittsburgh Penguins or the New York Rangers will make the biggest push for him at the trade deadline, even if he’ll still have $1.25 million left on his $6 million contract. The Penguins need some offence outside of their top six.

Calgary Flames forward Mikael Backlund takes notice of trade rumours

For the record, Mikael Backlund wants to stay.

The Calgary Flames centre is suddenly the subject of trade speculation, with TSN’s Darren Dreger reporting Friday on Twitter that four or five teams have ‘kicked tires’ on Backlund and the Flames are ‘willing to move him.’

RUMOURS DU JOUR – From the Ottawa Sun

Three teams say there is a lot of chatter and most of it is coming from the Sunshine State. After sending Versteeg back to the Hawks, Florida GM Dale Tallon isn’t done. He’d like to move RW Scottie Upshall, LW Tomas Fleischman, RW Brad Boyes, RW Tomas Kopecky, C Marcel Goc and C Shawn Matthias before the deadline.

What could the Edmonton Oilers trade for a top-pair defenceman?

What all does MacTavish have to work with? If we eliminate players either unlikely to be dealt or with very little trade value from the equation, what’s left?

Teams reportedly asking Flames about Mikael Backlund

Are the Habs looking to make a deal with Florida?

The Panthers and Canadiens have been circling each other for the past few weeks. With Francis Bouillon struggling, Montreal might have some interest in Kulikov as well, but it’s a better bet that they’re looking at big center Shawn Matthias. The Habs are deep down the middle, but Matthias would give them a dimension they lack–a strong forward willing to drive the net and compete on every shift.

Hurricanes willing to part with Ruutu or Tlusty

Kekalainen might seek to add veteran

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen said he wouldn’t make any “knee-jerk reactions” amid the Blue Jackets’ disappointing start, but said the lack of leadership among players has him interested in acquiring a veteran.

A disturbing 7-0 loss at the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night still was resonating with Kekalainen and the club yesterday morning as they prepared for a game last night against the Calgary Flames.
