The Jackets are trying to make changes, but GM Scott Howson hasn’t been able to find a trade partner. His refusal to fire coach Scott Arniel is curious, but a couple of more losses and Howson might not have a choice. The Jackets are fielding calls for D Kris Russell and C Derick Brassard … Tampa GM Steve Yzerman isn’t ready to push the panic button, but he does have concerns about the play of veteran G Dwayne Roloson. The Lightning could look to bolster its netminding before the trade deadline.

Tampa tried to acquire G Jonathan Bernier at the draft in June and there is talk the Kings may move him at some point … Calgary GM Jay Feaster has been working the phones hard with no success. The issue: He’s offering players who are of little interest, including LW Niklas Hagman, RW David Moss and C Matt Stajan. LW Rene Bourque is the most attractive player Feaster has, but even he’s got a lot of cash left on his deal. “The Flames have to accept it’s time for them to rebuild,” said an NHL executive … The Kings are looking to move LW Dustin Penner. Acquired from the Oilers at last year’s trade deadline, he is in the final year of a contract that pays him $4.25 million. He might attract some interest when more time ticks off his contract.

    there is rumors coming outa Edm. that say the rangers are interested in 4 Oilers, Ganer,Hemsky,Pecham and Omark, the oilers are said to be interested in Delzotto and callahan.

    the gaborik, richards dua has been a bust with absolutely no chemistry, so the thinking there is having hemsky skate with richards.
    hemsky is ready to go now but management is sitting him an extra 10 days, they want him 110% not just 100%, lol.
    i can see a deal getting done involving Hemsky by the end of Nov.
    there is no question that Hemmer is an elite forward in the league,he just needs to stay healthy, the rangers took a chance on the always hurt Gaborik  so why not on Hemmer.
    the talk on Oilerbuzz has a deal that is close to being done according to there sources. heres how it goes
    to edm. kris russel
    to clb.   Linus Omark,Ryan Martindale, 5th round pick

    if that is the deal the oilers are truly offering up, then the bluejackets better jump on it. because that is  to much for russel.

    i really dont want Martindale going anywhere, this kid is a stud
