Blocked Submitted News ***MUST READ***

From now, 12:00 am to 3:00 pm (et) HockeyTradeRumors.com will not accept submitted news. HTR.com staff members will submit the trades (like last year) on Deadline Day.

Please, do not submit any news, it will only slow the site down.


You will notice some changes to the site, like no survey/poll, so the site will run faster for you to get the latest updates from various league sources as quickly as possible.

Remember, if HTR.com is running too slow for you, you also have the choice of using www.wowhockey.com.

Also, please refrain from posting long comments.

We hope to keep you all updated as quickly as possible and allow you hockey fans to make comments. Also, once the Trade Deadline ends, we will have a “Be an Analyst” set up, so you can analyze trades with details, opinions, and facts, and so on. That should be pretty fun.

Enjoy using HockeyTradeRumors.com.

Any questions you would like to add, please post on this article.

Thank you,

Monday/Early Tuesday Trades Review

Check out the trades that occurd Monday and on Tuesday morning (early)!

Leafs after Rucinsky? Lindros wants out? Daze in Colorado?

I hope this gets posted because this is big news for Toronto and Colorado fans. Close sources are saying JFJ is in big talks with the Rangers and Rucinsky is the one they’re after….

Bobby Clarke: ''Heads – I buy; Tails – I sell''

After having to part with a young prospect and a 2nd rounder in 2005 to acquire a defensemen, Bobby Clarke apparently decided he suddenly had too many d-men on his team…

Messier says Don't try it with me.

The Captain has been rumored all over the board more and more, but this time Mark Messier won’t let a Leetch type deal happen to him.

How? He said he simply won’t go to any team who trades for him.

Since Leetch is gone. Messier has no desire to play anymore. But he will not leave N.Y. by letting Sather ship him out like the leetch deal.

Ranger Faithful Pulling for Leetchie

I haven’t had much time to make a post the last week or so, but there is just too much stress building inside of me regarding my beloved NY Rangers. Alexi Kovalev, Petr Nedved, Jussi Markkanen and Chris Simon being dealt were just mere flesh wounds. If this gets posted great, if not it’s a great way for me to vent on a very sensitive subject aka the low blow of all low blows: Brian Leetch being dealt to Toronto.

An Avalanche of Questions

I listened to an interesting discussion on AM950 The FAN here in Denver after Colorado lost 7-1 at home to Calgary, making me take a serious look back on what has transpired this season for the Avs. As the ominous trade deadline of March 9th approaches, all of us must wonder what, if anything Pierre Lacroix will do to shake up this Avalanche franchise.

Trade deadline deadpool!

Hi kids! I’m Titans! Let’s play a game! The game is the NHL trade deadline deadpool! Here’s how it works! You pick FIVE names of players you think are gonna be traded before Tuesday’s 3:00 pm deadline! The person who picks the most players actually traded wins!

Take It For What It's Worth…

Everybody is going nuts with rumors at this time of year…especially when you work in a “Sport” bar in Montreal. Tonight was really quiet night, so I had the chance to talk a lot with one of our customers…

Here’s what he had to say…

Zholtok and Bombardir to Nashville

Tsn.ca is reporting that the Nashville Predators have added centre Sergei Zholtok and defenceman Brad Bombardir from the Minnesota Wild. In exchange, the Wild receive a third and a fourth round pick in this years NHL Entry Draft.
