Penguins eyeing Kulemin of Toronto?

The Pittsburgh Penguins, sitting first in the Atlantic Division, could be looking to acquire another winger to play alongside Evgeni Malkin.

It’s believed the Penguins are once again taking a look at Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nikolai Kulemin.

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray examines trade market

While the Senators are determined to go with what they’ve got to fill the void left by the back surgery to centre Jason Spezza, Murray likely couldn’t make a deal unless he was willing to give up a top prospect to get something in return.

Could the Flames make a trade for a goalie?

Ever wonder what life would be like without Miikka Kiprusoff giving the Calgary Flames at least a fighting chance almost every night?

Looks like Flames fans might just find out.

An otherwise encouraging night for the Flames was marred two-thirds through when Kiprusoff did not start the third period of a 4-1 win in Detroit due to a lower-body injury.

Oilers not likely to trade for Bernier

Q. Why don’t the Oilers trade for Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier? Then we would have two No. 1s and Devan Dubnyk wouldn’t have the sole pressure of being that guy.

Could the Flames be looking to move a defenceman?

Anton Babchuk will likely be cleared for contact this week, meaning the defenceman is close to returning to the lineup. Or, at least, returning to the active roster. Hartley has, obviously, identified his top four blueliners, with the pairings of Jay Bouwmeester-Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie-Dennis Wideman logging a lot of minutes. With Chris Butler, Cory Sarich and Derek Smith already rotating in and out, Babchuk’s return from a shoulder injury will only complicate matters. The Flames are likely listening to trade offers for a defenceman.

Sabres looking to make a trade?

The Buffalo Sabres are among the teams trying to make a trade to help push their way up the standings after starting the season 3-5-1.

The Sabres, currently sitting 11th in the Eastern Conference, haven’t had trouble scoring, but they rank 28th in the NHL in goals-against per game, averaging 3.67.

Roberto Luongo trade rumors: Would Canucks deal with Capitals?

The issue for the Capitals is whether adding Luongo, at his age and cap hit, makes sense this season and in the immediate future. They are already behind the eight-ball in the Eastern Conference, and the Alex Ovechkin-Nicklas Backstrom-Mike Green core hasn’t contended since 2010.

Players Gillis could be interested in: young defenseman Dmitry Orlov and prospect Filip Forsberg. If he’s looking for immediate help along the second line, though, the Capitals don’t have much to offer.

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports …..

Nonis may consider moving F Phil Kessel. Just one problem: Somebody has to be willing to take him. Not easy finding a fit because he is making $5.4 million and is one year away from being a UFA … Once the New York Islanders are officially out of the playoff picture, expect D Mark Streit to get dealt.

Some possible trade targets to upgrade the Flyers offense

Here are some of the unrestricted free-agent forwards who could appeal to the Flyers in a deal, one that would ease the pain of losing winger Wayne Simmonds (out indefinitely with a concussion) and Scott Hartnell, who could miss another five weeks:
