NHL Trade Speculation: 3 Trades That Could Pry Cory Schneider from Vancouver

Three teams that could make a trade with Vancouver for Schneider.

Leafs will keep working the phones

Leafs will keep working the phones even after today’s trade. Still a surplus at defense. Nothing imminent at all, but they’ll keep looking.

Rangers are in need of another Dman.

Rangers are in need of another Dman. Leafs have plenty. Could Rangers be looking at Gunnarsson or possibly Komisarek? I think so.

Leafs to shop Gunnarsson?

In a perfect world, Burke would like to use his blue liner surplus as bait for a possible trade for forward help. Gunnarsson is a likely candidate and will be showcased while playing with Phaneuf.

Franson has an encouraging upside and would seem to be in the team’s long-term plans. Aulie, meanwhile, is just a phone call away, especially if Gardiner has some hiccups once the regular season kicks off and the bullets start flying for real.

Dreger – Via TSN.ca – LEAFS LOOK TO UPGRADE

There is little heavy-lifting required for the Toronto Maple Leafs to cut their roster down to 23 for next weeks season opener.
Nazem Kadri is expected to be placed on injured reserve which will allow Toronto to keep an extra body on the roster while he recovers from a knee strain.
The Leafs will keep eight defensemen, with Matt Lashoff likely the odd man out. Meanwhile, close tabs will be kept on both Keith Aulie and Jake Gardiner to ensure they can handle the load.

Whitney to the Bruins?

Ray Whitney’s name keeps bubbling up as a potential pickup for the Bruins. Not the first time the crafty winger’s name has been linked to the Black and Gold. He is making $3 million in Phoenix and is on track to be an unrestricted free agent next July 1. Whitney, 39, collected 57 points last season with the Desert Dogs, the same number Patrice Bergeron put up as Boston’s No. 3 scorer.

Are the Kings and Oilers about to swing a major blockbuster?

With the NHL season opener fast approaching, Drew Doughty is still without a contract with the LA Kings and it looks like a long holdout is possible. The Kings have reportedly received offer sheets from other clubs, and if the two sides can’t reach an agreement soon, his days as a King will be over.

The latest trade rumor on Bleacher Report has the young defenseman heading to Edmonton in a deal with the Oilers. Edmonton is rumored to have put an offer sheet together and the Kings are mulling over their options.

Could the Flyers make a trade?

Right now, the Flyers have about $175,000 in cap space.

Among the moves, Holmgren kind of smiled in saying there are ways to do this and the hot rumor of the day was trading Scott Hartnell’s $4.2 million cap hit back to Nashville.

A club source said that the likelihood of a trade seemed “pretty good.”

NHL News and Rumors from ESPN

Bryan McCabe remains unsigned and the stars would really have to align for him to pack his bags at this point.

That’s not to say it’s not going to happen, but he’s settled in South Florida with his family and the kids are in school, so it would need to be a really tempting offer.

A source told ESPN.com that a Western Conference team showed interest within the past week, but it wasn’t something that interested the defenseman. He’s made plenty of money in his career and has nothing to prove to anyone. If he does sign with a club this season, it has to be a super fit for him.

VETERANS IN TROUBLE

Tyler Bozak: Having a great camp, but suddenly his name is coming up in trade rumours. If the Leafs are interested in Phoenix hold-out Kyle Turris, or if Matthew Lombardi outplays him, things could get very uncomfortable for the third-year leaf.

Mike Komisarek: Having a good camp, looking very confident. He’s an alternate captain and a loyal soldier and GM Brian Burke loves him. Much has been made recently of his limited no-trade clause – Komisarek has a list of about 10 teams he’d accept a trade to. And he’s from Long Island, and the Islanders need a defenceman …. so connect the dots.

Unsigned Coyote might be an option for Leafs

On the surface a moderately-sized, non-physical centre without a lengthy resume of NHL success wouldn’t be a player at the top of the Maple Leafs’ wish list.

And right now,Kyle Turris, unsigned and persona non grata in the Phoenix Coyotes camp isn’t a player Brian Burke is desperately trying to land.

Schneider Trade Rumors Surface Again

Training camp is just getting started but it didn’t take long for the Cory Schneider trade rumblings to begin.

It’s gotten to the point where some have become numb to the Schneider rumors. The day will eventually come when Vancouver officially chooses to pull the plug and move their prized asset. Many expect a trade involving the former Boston College standout could come as early as training camp or as late as the trade deadline.

Doughty Rejects Kings' Offer: Toronto and 4 Teams That Could Trade for Him

Drew Doughty has shot down a nine-year deal worth $61.2 million, and perhaps now it’s time for the Kings to consider dealing him. The idea seemed insane to me a month ago, and even though I questioned his personality and if he should be the cornerstone of the Kings, plenty of fans came to his defense.

With these new reports from Nick Kypreos, NBC Sports and the LA Times it may be wise to reconsider the no way, no how trade stance. Franchise blueliners don’t grow on trees, but neither do 21-year-olds fresh off of a concussion-shortened season that turn down nearly $7 million a year.

Bruins seeking assets for Kaberle's negotiating rights

There remains a possibility that Tomas Kaberle could re-sign with the Bruins after July 1. But with the Bruins putting Kaberle’s negotiating rights up for grabs, it’s clear the two sides do not agree on a term and number for a Black-and-Gold extension.

If they succeed in trading Kaberle’s negotiating rights, the Bruins could land a low-level pick. Yesterday, Vancouver acquired the Islanders’ 2012 fourth-rounder for Christian Ehrhoff’s rights.

Garrioch: Which free agents do Sens want?

The Senators likely won’t be big spenders when the free-agent sweepstakes begin July 1.

After being first out of the gate last July 1 by signing defenceman Sergei Gonchar to a three-year, $16.5-million deal, the Senators could take a wait-and-see attitude.

While the Senators have only $43 million committed in salary to 15 players, they’ll be working harder to get to the $48.3-million floor than even coming close to the $64.3-million cap that’s been set for the final year of the CBA.

Flyers look as if they're ready to go after Stamkos

LAST THURSDAY, Jeff Carter was sent packing as a salary-cap casualty.

Best friend and captain Mike Richards went only 30 minutes after him, in a move that also – at least temporarily – cleared valuable cap space.

Yesterday, the Flyers dealt the rights to restricted free-agent center Darroll Powe to Minnesota in exchange for a 2013 third-round pick. Powe, a heart-and-soul-type player whom Paul Holmgren called “one of the most underrated players in the league” in May, wasn’t asking for an exorbitant sum of money.

Panthers ready to trade and add free agents this week

While the Panthers’ front-office honchos flew home Sunday morning feeling content after adding 10 building blocks, there is still more work to do.

With just 10 signed players on the active roster and the free-agency period starting Friday, the Panthers, who have about $26 million to shop for nine players, are trying to make some early-week trades with cash-strapped teams looking to shed payroll.

Gaborik on the move?

New York Rangers winger Marian Gaborik — was attached to the Senators in trade talks.

Gaborik, 29, has scored 42 goals in an NHL season twice and has topped 30 goals six times, but his career with both the Rangers and Minnesota Wild has been plagued by injury problems and questions about his character. Considering he has three years and $22.5 million US remaining on his contract, it would be a big risk for any team to take a chance on him, even if the Rangers were willing to take salary back in exchange.
