Not all the talk at the NHL’s board of governors meeting Monday in Pebble Beach will surround the formal agenda.
Trade talk is also on the table.
With only the Buffalo Sabres and Florida Panthers willing to throw in the towel on making the playoffs, three league executives told QMI Agency this week that the chatter has heated up and those discussions will continue when the 30 teams gather.
A savvy, rangy defenseman is getting closer on the Detroit Red Wings’ horizon, which will afford an opportunity to change the landscape.
Danny DeKeyser is starting a comeback from a separated shoulder suffered Nov. 21, taking to the ice daily and increasing what he does. Realistically, he’s still about two weeks away, but when he is ready, he’ll need to be removed from long-term injured reserve. Right now, that can’t be done without something else happening.
I don't know if something's coming in the immediate future, but Montreal and Columbus have been talking trade for a number of weeks

By virtue of the title, trade rumors usually turn into soap operas.
When it comes to the rumors surrounding the Carolina Hurricanes recently, it has been a complete farce. Every report seems to indicate the Hurricanes throwing players at whatever team happens to answer the phone and getting hung up on. There’s the Tim Gleason for John-Michael Liles rumors that have been going on for weeks now. In addition, there’s rumors with Tuomo Ruutu and Jiri Tlusty.
According to ace Rogers Sportsnet reporter/podcast host Jeff Marek they are.
Marek, one of the hockey media people I respect a lot, said on the air that his sources are telling him the Avs have interest in Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov, the 14th overall pick by Florida in 2009 – 11 spots behind Matt Duchene.
