Hopefully we have this right.
The latest rumours have Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla destined to be traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins or Boston Bruins or Los Angeles Kings or Vancouver Canucks or Philadelphia Flyers or Detroit Red Wings.
Ron Hainsey’s play may have priced him right out of the trade market.
Hainsey has long been seen as a player Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff might peddle at the deadline, but a number of factors are beginning to make such a deal less likely.
To a slightly lesser degree, the same can be said for Nik Antropov.
Both veteran players are unrestricted free agents this summer and Cheveldayoff likely had plans to try and grab draft picks in exchange for both prior to the trade deadline.
Looks like the Islanders have decided to part ways with Rick DiPietro.

It appears the Rick DiPietro era is coming to a close on Long Island, as the Islanders put the goalie on waivers.
Two veteran NHLers that have already spent time in the press box will be back there again on Thursday.
In Edmonton, defenseman Ryan Whitney will be a healthy scratch when the Oilers take on the Minnesota Wild. Theo Peckham will replace Whitney in the lineup and make his season debut.

THE NHL and NHLPA are working to solve the league’s alignment issues and a solution should be reached in the coming weeks.
The NHL proposed a realignment plan to its board of governors in December of 2011 and it passed. The NHLPA, however, refused to accept the proposal and the league elected to put it on the backburner until a new CBA could be negotiated.
The proposal would have seen the Jets move to a conference with Chicago, Detroit, Columbus, St. Louis, Nashville, Dallas and Minnesota.

Brian Burke’s legacy as Maple Leafs general manager should not be judged solely on the Phil Kessel trade.
So says Peter Chiarelli, the man who traded Phil the Thrill to Toronto in the first place.
With his team being referred to as the “Boston Maple Leafs” because of the number of key players that are on the Bruins roster thanks to deals with the Leafs, Chiarelli said Saturday that he does not think it is fair that Burke’s body of work in Toronto be based on that one deal.
“I don’t think it is,” Chiarelli said during the Bruins morning skate at the Air Canada Centre. “When you are in this job, we all have made deals that we’d like to have back. We’ve all made deals that we’d like to have a do-over on.
“I’m not saying Brian feels that way about the (Kessel) trade. I don’t know that. I mean, they got a 35-goal scorer out of the deal.”
