Canucks were close on a deal to move Luongo

 

Pens believe that they will make changes

The National Hockey League trade deadline arrives in exactly one month.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero believes that, by the time the cutoff for making deals arrives at 3 p.m., a lot of players will have new employers.

“I think there will be a good number of trades,” he said. “Every year, there’s activity, because every team needs something.

“Or wants to do something.”

Komisarek reportedly has a list of teams he will accept trade to

For the first and only time this season, the Toronto Maple Leafs will not take to the ice for one of their traditional Saturday night games, but even without a game today, we have plenty of Maple Leafs news making the rounds.

Mike Komisarek, who hasn’t played since February 2nd against the Bruins, has reportedly issued a list of 12 teams he would accept a trade to.

Alfredsson can’t see himself being traded to Bruins

While Daniel Alfredsson appreciates the way former Ottawa Senators front office man Peter Chiarelli has constructed the Boston Bruins franchise over the last six years and would feel comfortable with familiar faces like Zdeno Chara and Chris Kelly within the dressing room, don’t expect the 40-year-old Ottawa captain to be coming to Boston.

Oilers looking to move Hemsky and Whitney

Whitney, 30, is the mobile, offensive defenseman the Flyers crave, but he has been a healthy scratch recently. Hemsky, a 29-year-old winger, has thrice broken 65 points scoring in his NHL career, all with the Oilers.

Jeff Petry, 25, is also an intriguing name out of Edmonton. He’s younger, and more expensive than Whitney, but has a decent mix of size and footspeed. Plus, he’d be a solid No. 4 on a defense corps full of third pairing-type players.

The NHL trade deadline is April 3.

Kevin Shattenkirk Target Of Philadelphia Flyers For Daniel Briere?

Thank you to Travis over at Broad Street Hockey for bringing this piece of wackiness to my attention. As usual, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren wants to make a splash by the trade deadline, especially since the Flyers are not a particularly successful team right now. They are 9-11-1 on the year and are in 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Something needs to be done. But what? How about trade Daniel Briere for defensive help? Sure, stands to reason.

What will Nonis do Come trade deadline day

Like every year the city of Toronto is Convinced that big fish like Steve Nash, Mike Richards, Roberto Luongo and Ryan Geztalf are about to put on the blue and white; lift the Stanley cup. This year, however the big fish being talked about is a realistic trade target. Corey Perry, one time hart trophy, Rocket Richard and Stanley cup winner could be in blue and white, or really on any other team come trade deadline day.

Maple Leafs need to enter Corey Perry sweepstakes if Anaheim Ducks put him on trade market

We’re waiting for the first big move by Dave Nonis as GM of the Maple Leafs.
It might have to be a really big one.
See, if it turns out, as is being widely speculated, that the Anaheim Ducks can afford to keep only one their dynamic duo, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, and that Getzlaf is the one most likely to get the new long-term deal from the Ducks, then Perry could be available before the April 3rd trade deadline.

So here’s an idea of the forwards that still fit the bill for the Black and Gold with Ryder scratched off the list:

JAROME IGINLA

The dream candidate on Boston’s list because he has played with a Bruins-style mentality throughout his entire career. The belief is that a winning situation could spark the 35-year-old’s game. He’s got power-forward size, a mean streak that will fit in well with the Black and Gold and enough offensive ability to post 32 goals and 67 points last season. There’s little doubt that he’s slowed down in the morass that is the Calgary Flames, and he’s got only three goals along with a minus-3 rating in 18 games.

Are Devils’ defensemen trade bait for a top six forward?

Even before the Devils hit a rut and began to falter over the last half-dozen games, general manager Lou Lamoriello was formulating a plan for what the team needs to become a serious Stanley Cup contender post-Parise.
