Higgins will not play while VAN searches for match.

The Vancouver Canucks took an unusual step on Sunday to try and drum up interest in forward Chris Higgins.

At least two NHL teams have called the Maple Leafs to inquire about defenceman Roman Polak

At least two NHL teams have called the Maple Leafs to inquire about defenceman Roman Polak and found the asking price way too high. With less than two months to the trade deadline, NHL voices say GM Lou Lamoriello has priced his players very high at this point in time. Expect that price to come down closer to the end of February. Polak is the perfect kind of playoff addition contending teams are looking for

All eyes still on Stamkos … Lightning shopping Drouin

Really, the guy to watch in the next two months in Tampa Bay Lightning centre Steven Stamkos. There has been no update in contract talks between the two sides and there’s been a news blackout on any discussions. The belief in many circles is if Stamkos hasn’t signed by now then he’s not going to but that doesn’t mean he’ll be traded.

The key factors that make Keith Yandle Rangers’ best trade chip

Keith Yandle has been traded just once, but he has spent the majority of his career hearing his name mentioned at this time of year in rumors. So the Rangers defenseman is taking things in stride, aware this was coming and trying to focus only on what he can control.

Pens would like to make some moves

Keep an eye on the Pittsburgh Penguins. Although shackled to some degree by the salary cap, Pens’ general manager Jim Rutherford is believed to be putting together his shopping list for the days leading up to the Feb. 29, trade deadline. If he can make it work, Rutherford would like to add a top-four defenceman and a depth forward.

Robby Fabbri for Jonathan Drouin is a possibility.

St. James: Red Wings should look into Drouin trade

An intriguing situation has developed in Tampa Bay, one that should interest the Detroit Red Wings.

Jonathan Drouin, a top-three draft pick, wants out, and it’s worth it for the Wings to see whether they could land him.

Dreger: Rangers Have ‘Significant’ Interest in Drouin

On potential interest of the New York Rangers in Jonathan Drouin:

“Yeah, I would say it’s significant. It’s significant. Now, whether or not there’s a deal to be made is another thing and I don’t believe that the Rangers have a full grasp on what the asking price is. But I was working on this yesterday as well and they do have some interest.

Fast and furious trade market puts heat on Rangers to act now

As teams around the Rangers retooled, swapped young talent, and signed veteran depth, a feeling of urgency has come to the forefront of front offices all around the league. This year, it seems the best deals are going to be made sooner rather than later, and surely Gorton has taken note.

Heika: What it could cost to trade for Winnipeg defensemen Dustin Byfuglien

Do you think the Stars will make a play to get Dustin Byfuglien? What’ll it cost? Also, do the Stars start looking for a new goalie prospect since Jack Campbell isn’t doing too well?

Heika: I do think the Stars are in the market for a high-end defenseman, and they will be in talks with any that are available. Alex Goligoski, Jason Demers and Jordie Benn can all become UFAs in the summer, and Jim Nill is in the process of assessing those players. He also has two capable youngsters in Patrik Nemeth and Jamie Oleskiak, as well as three great prospects in the minors.

Frederik Andersen could be on the move for the right price.

From tsn.ca

The Ducks’ acquisition of Dustin Tokarski gives them four goalies with NHL experience. That fact makes TSN senior hockey reporter Frank Seravalli wonder if Frederik Andersen could be on the move for the right price.
