Hurricanes have expressed intrest in a exprienced D

John Michael Liles has not played in recent games and could see himself moving out of Toronto by the trade deadline. With the Carolina huricanes making it public that they are looking around for a veteran D-man to add to their blue line, John Michael must surely be one of their targets. Could we see John Michael liles be moved for a mid-round pick? Yes , and probably sooner rather than later.

Blues and Leafs On Each Other’s Radar?

Sources out of Toronto have the Blues and Maple Leafs on each other’s radar. One player whose name continues to pop up, not just with St. Louis, is forward Nikolai Kulemin.

A former 30 goal scorer, Kulemin is playing a different role with Toronto and could maybe use a change of scenery. The 26 year-old Russian has just 12 points this season but has been used primarily in a defensive/PK role. He’s seen limited PP action.

He put up 38 points in 36 KHL games this season. Kulemin is a childhood friend of Pittsburgh superstar Evgeni Malkin as the two played together before coming over to the NHL.

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.
