Avalanche news and notes: Will Paul Stastny be trade bait to Maple Leafs?

Some rumors today about Dion Phaneuf possibly being on the trade block. If the Avs got him, they’d almost certainly have to deal Paul Stastny to get him – in large part just to make the math work on the salary cap. Phaneuf’s cap hit is $6.5 million, just under Stastny’s $6.6 million. Like Stastny, Phaneuf can be an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Marc-Andre Fleury trade interests Wild, report says

Florida Panthers willing to trade second overall pick, but don’t expect Edmonton Oilers to land it

Panthers general manager Dale Tallon made it clear he was willing to talk about trading the second overall pick in an interview at the NHL draft combine on Friday. Despite his comments, it’s extremely unlikely that a team as far down as the Edmonton Oilers (seventh overall) will be able to make a pitch that sways Florida into a deal.
