It's that time of year again... NHL "Trade Deadline" Madness --- Enough bullshit lets get to the rumors!

  • LA KINGS: Two offers on table for scoring help. Moulson from (Buffalo) & Mike Cammalleri (Flames) 

  • SENATORS: Seems they are making a push for Moulson as well (Kings & Sens top offers so far) also Chris Phillips is avail for right price.

 

  • NY RANGERS: The obvious rumor is Callahan to Tampa Bay and at this time it's not as close as some are suggesting. Marty ST Louis is making it hard on Lightning after asking for trade but "Reportedly" only to the Rangers... Blues are the dark-horse for Callahan and the *Buzz* is they will make a big push this weekend heading into deadline next week. Dan Girardi the other big name on the block, his pursuers include the Bruins / Ducks / Canucks... As of now Anaheim looks to be most serious.

 

  • VANCOUVER CANUCKS: Making a push for Girardi... Also the huge news Edler & Kesler are available, bunch of teams calling. Leafs / Pens / Devils / Lightning at top of list so far. Watch the "LEAFS" (Linked to Kesler) the last 24 hours. 

 

  • NY ISLANDERS: We have a bunch of buzz on the island... Lets start with the biggest name (Vanek) he's being pursued by as many as 7 teams, Kings / Preds / Habs seem most interested. Islanders turned down offer from Montreal early this morning, Blues have also jumped in the race today. The other big name is "D-Man" Andrew MacDonald, host of teams in on him as well ' Flyers / Ducks / Leafs / Capitals all in the running. 

 

  • BUFFALO SABRES: Ryan Miller rumors heating up big time... lets keep it short and sweet ' Capitals vs Blues is the word as of tonight. Caps could be making a deal before they make offer for Miller, that would help set them up with more depth to get a deal done.

  • CALGARY FLAMES: The GM (Burke) has made it clear several deals could be made before the deadline, so far ongoing talks to extend Mike Cammalleri's contract has not picked up any steam since the trade freeze ended. Three teams seem to be major players (Kings / Coyotes / Senators) the buzz this morning is a deal is likely. Flames are also dangling Lee Stempniak, Lightning / Red Wings / Blue Jackets involved on the veteran fwd. 

 

  • BOSTON BRUINS: Expect 2-3 depth moves from the Bruins leading up to the deadline (No big trades) at this time a few names have been linked to Bruins... D-Men (Andrej Meszaros , Andrew MacDonald , Nick SchultzLadislav Smid) Fwd's (Olli Jokinen , Michael Grabner , Jagr)

February 28

  • TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS: The buzz all last night coming from Toronto was about Tyler Myers & Edler being targets. I confirmed this morning two teams have made serious offers for Myers (Leafs & Flyers / Oilers involved as well) nothing is imminent but Sabres are leaning to pulling the trigger and unloading Myers. Now on the Edler front, we have Leafs making a strong push and something could get done within the next few days (Ducks / Caps / Flyers) also snooping around.

  • BUFFALO SABRES: Besides those Myers rumors, Sabres have about 7-8 more lines in the water... 1. Moulson: as of now a top source is saying Penguins & Kings in lead to make a deal for Matty "Nets" ::: 2. Ryan Miller: Still hearing it's a race between two teams ' Caps & Blues.. whoever steps up those offers will win the derby ::: 3. Steve Ott: So many teams trying to pry him loose it's hard to determine who has lead as of now, Capitals/Devils jumped in last night ' Avalanche/Blues also big players in this.

 

  • NY ISLANDERS: Vanek to Kings or Preds (Watch the Preds... they are dark horses) ' A-Mac has 5 serious suitors and a deal looks very close (Flyers/Ducks/Blues top list ::: Caps & Canucks checked in) ' Josh Bailey is on the block so far Islanders are looking for a mid-rd pick '  

  • NY RANGERS: Blues still trying to work out deal for Callahan not close, could heat up early next week again.. (Tampa Bay is OUT!) ' Girardi to Ducks still hot but the new players in the sweepstakes are the Detroit Red Wings & LA Kings (Both made offers L24 Hours) ' Rangers made call about Kesler last night so we need to watch this and see if it develops. --- *Note* Girardi signed extension to stay with Rangers. Market for A-Mac just went up a little for Islanders.

 

  • MONTREAL CANADIENS: They made offer for Vanek but Isles turned them down.. Hemsky is a target as is Jagr & Brad Boyes.

 

  • WASHINGTON CAPITALS: Erat rumors heating up (Wings / Coyotes / Avs) ' Still involved on Ryan Miller ' Also kicking tires on Hemsky...
