Could the Leafs send Liles as part of a package to Florida for Kulikov?

From Damien Cox of the Toronto Star:

One of the players the Maple Leafs have been eying from afar over the past couple of seasons is defenceman Dmitri Kulikov of the Florida Panthers, and Kulikov might just be more available now than he was because of the wreckage of Florida’s early season play.

Trade of Mike Brown could mean another Edmonton Oilers deal is on the way

Brown had seven fights as an Oiler, if you’re keeping count, two with Jordin Tootoo, which brings up Tootoo.

There’s been some discussion that the Oilers should now take a run at Tootoo as a fourth-liner because he has some ability with the puck (he has 133 points and 49 career goals).

More on the Oilers – Are the looking at Jake Allen and/or Thomas Greiss

At this time last week, no doubt everyone thought Edmonton was going to make a goalie move. The Oilers didn’t for two reasons. First, they just didn’t believe what they could get would really solve their problems long-term.

Is an Oilers deal cooking?

Edmonton Oilers would jump at chance to acquire Shawn Matthias

If the Florida Panthers are moving veterans to cut payroll, and they consider Shawn Matthias a veteran of sorts, the Edmonton Oilers might be all over that. They’ve tried to get the six-foot-four, 220-pound centre before and were rebuffed.

Could the Leafs and Oilers swing a deal at some point?

Nonis said he hasn’t considered trading Jake Gardiner and doesn’t believe in trading young defencemen. “How many teams have made mistakes trading a young defencemen too soon?”

Florida Panthers fire sale seems likely

less than a month since Vincent Viola and Douglas Cifu took over the franchise — sources say the Panthers are prepared to move any of their veteran players.

Are the Oilers and Sabres close to a blockbuster trade?

And just so you know, there was talk Wednesday afternoon that the Sabres were working on a deal with Edmonton that would send Ryan Miller or Thomas Vanek and possibly both to the Oilers in a package that would bring Nail Yakupov and more to Buffalo. Whether it actually happens is another story. But as it stood Wednesday, the two sides had considered, or were considering, a major swap.

Flyers should pursue Sabres’ Vanek

Vanek, a rugged 6-foot-2, 207-pounder who is one of Buffalo’s cornerstones, could bring the Sabres several prospects (Scott Laughton? Nick Cousins? Oliver Lauridsen?) and/or draft picks.

He would feel right at home with the Flyers because he was winger Michael Raffl’s linemate with Austria at the 2013 IIHF World Championships.
