Flyers should put Andrej Meszaros on the trade block

This is the year to be a seller, and for the teams lingering around the cellar, it’s time to assess the situation, evaluate the roster and start shaping it for next season.

It’s a harsh reality for Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, who hasn’t been in this position since taking over the GM job in October 2006.

Rangers need to hold on to Del Zotto

We all know the Rangers are looking to add with the NHL trade deadline two weeks from today. General manager Glen Sather is in the market for a right-handed defenseman, the club would like to bulk up on the wing and sure would like to add some scoring punch to boot.

The problem, though, is the Rangers have a limited pool of quality players available for barter. Marian Gaborik is more a Blueshirt than a blue chip.

NHL teams look to deal

The trade market is finally starting to heat up.

A day after the NHL’s 30 GMs sat down in Toronto to discuss the state of the game, the table started to be set for deals with the deadline set for April 3.

Weighing the Sharks’ trade deadline options

The NHL’s trade deadline has become one of the true holidays of the professional sports world. It’s the day that a team can declare in one bold move that it’s making a hard push towards a championship, or a day when a general manager decides to throw in the towel on the current campaign and add pieces for the future.

No lack of trade talk

 

Stephen Weiss and Maxime Talbot Available?

Panthers Move Stephen Weiss?

On the surface this makes little sense considering he just had wrist surgery, but there’s talk it’s possible he could recover in time to play this season.

Just keep this in mind….

Another Luongo to the Leafs rumor

 

Should Flyers re-acquire Jaromir Jagr?

On his 41st birthday, Jagr was asked if he was considering retirement. He answered by saying he’d continue to play as long as he could in the NHL, equating his love of the game to marriage.

“Would you have imagined you’re going to stay with your wife that long?” Jagr told the Dallas Morning News. “Well, you love her. You’re going to stay with her as long as you can. If you don’t, there’s no reason to be with her. It’s the same thing with hockey for me. I just love the game.”

Miikka Kiprusoff brushes off trade rumours

“I try to stay out of that,” shrugged the habitually-nonplussed goaltender of trade speculation. “I try to keep it simple, still. I try to help team here. Try to win games.

“Everything else is out of my control.

“So there’s no reason to think about it. At all. It’s NHL. Every year, it’s the same talk. A part of the game. My name is out there, too.

“But I can’t worry about it too much.”

Haggerty: Pressure’s on for Chiarelli to make a move

Clearly the Bruins are interested in Iginla’s services, and those feelings have intensified as any potential trade hopes with Ottawa for Daniel Alfredsson went up in smoke as the Senators kept on winning. The Calgary Flames captain has become the No. 1 target for the Bruins on their trade wish list, and fits the ball for Boston on so many levels.

Iginla is a fiery leader, he’s a physical presence still capable of playing the power forward position at an elite level and he was good enough to still score 32 goals last season at 35 years old.
