All’s not quiet on the NHL trade front

Yahoo sports is reporting
For a moment, it was quiet. After the latest big news – winger James Neal(notes) and defenseman Matt Niskanen(notes) traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, defenseman Alex Goligoski(notes) to the Dallas Stars – there wasn’t a single NHL deal for two whole days. “It seems like everything’s done,” Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said Thursday morning. But he was smiling as he said it. There were four more deals later in the afternoon, and there was one more as of Friday afternoon. And even though there have been 23 since Feb. 9 – with first-round picks, notable names and young players changing hands – there is the potential for even more significant action before the trade deadline at 3 p.m. ET on Monday.

The Los Angeles Kings have quietly made a big run for the postseason. Just a month ago, they looked down and out but after a stretch of hockey where they went 8-1-3, they are now the seventh seed in the Western Conference playoffs and they will finish up the season with 14 of their final 24 games coming at home (where they are 17-9-1).

Maple Leafs – What Comes Next?

More Leafs moves to come

Brian Burke has been burning up the phone lines to add a defenceman.

And if the Maple Leafs general manager has his way, he will do so by the time the Leafs play host to the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

“We have a couple of things going, and I don’t know if anything is going to come of it or not, but I spent a good chunk of time this morning,” Burke told reporters at the MasterCard Centre on Monday afternoon. “We’re trying to add by tomorrow if we can, trying to put a player in the lineup to help us soon as possible. Our priority is to add a defenceman.”

Feb 21 – Updates

I’ll bet even money one of them is gone by Monday, though I’m not including Duchene in the list. That means – that’s right -I’ve included Stastny in the list of possible “touchables.”
Rumors – yup, I’ve heard a few. I have no real confidence in this one, but I’ve heard this one going around the water cooler. Ready?
Stastny, TJ Galiardi and maybe a pick/another player to Los Angeles for Jack Johnson, Jonathan Bernier and Jarret Stoll.

Leafs looking to add a defenceman

General manager Brian Burke has cleared some cap space with trades, and he’s looking to add a defenceman before the clock strikes on NHL trades in one week.

Though Burke will be in the free-agent hunt on July 1, the core of young players as it stands probably will be part of the 2011-12 Leafs.

Players to watch as NHL trade deadline approaches

Anybody trying to come up with a top 10 list of players to move on or near the Feb. 28 NHL trade deadline has had to change it on the fly.

Hands up — how many people thought Erik Johnson, the first overall pick of the St. Louis Blues in the 2006 NHL entry draft, would be dealt for Chris Stewart, who has the hands to be a 40-goal scorer? That was a bolt out of the blue, two very good young players traded.

Did anybody have Johnson or Stewart on their to-go list? Not a chance, but here’s three that were, and long before deadline day:

Tons of rumors from the Ottawa Sun

The ball is now in the courts of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins have both made their pre-deadline moves, so it’s up to Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero and Washington’s George McPhee to react.

Kaberle Update from the Dreger Report

Failing a complete meltdown – which has scuttled at least one previous trade involving the Toronto Maple Leafs, Tomas Kaberle, and the Boston Bruins – there’s strong belief that Kaberle will be traded to Boston.
It’s unlikely the deal gets done today, but sources say it’s close and say the deal doesn’t hinge on Kaberle signing an extension with the Bruins.
