Rick Nash is Not Coming to Boston


Matt wrote about this four days ago. But nothing's changed. He's not coming. Not for David Krejci, not for Tuukka Rask and definitely not for Milan Lucic. So let's just refrain from entertaining these thoughts anymore, okay? great.

2011 NHL Trade Deadline coverage from SB Nation


To go along with SB Nation's general NHL coverage, the page linked to in the title of this post provides network-wide coverage of the 2011 NHL trade deadline: Rumors, reporting, speculation, analysis, etc. The deadline is 3PM this afternoon.

Staples: Oilers should go for Horton, but "no way" Florida gets top pick


From the Edmonton Journal's David Staples: "Would you trade Nathan Horton, Stephen Weiss and Cam Fowler for Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin?" Yet another angle on the top three...and what to do with them. BTW: I think that deal flies with Edmonton, but it is a lot to give up.

Whitney to Calgary?


According to the "Canes Insider" on Twitter, Whitney may indeed be a Calgary Flame soon. Take with a grain of salt until confirmed by the likes of TSN... For now, let the wild speculation begin - who would be going the other way? Sarich?



Sort of off topic, but with the off season for 28 teams in full swing (Congrats to the Pens and Wings on making it to the Finals), the rumor mill will be ramping up regarding everyone and everything but the kitchen sink for most every team. Well, at least that's the way Hockey Buzz works. Hockey Buzz Hogwash tracks the rumors being spread on Hockey Buzz. Think of it as a Rotten Tomatoes site specifically dedicated to hockey and Eklund... But instead of tracking opinions of films, it tracks accuracy of rumor mongering originating from Hockey Buzz.

Could a Lecavalier trade alter balance of power in Southeast overnight?


Doubtful, considering the self-defeating wall Lightning management has erected, keeping them safely protected from sound business moves. Things could change, however...sooner or later they'll hit a home run. Shipping out Vinny could be a step in the right direction, dependent upon the return, of course. From the CBC via Spector's Hockey: -(Al) Strachan reports media consensus is that Vincent Lecavalier could be moved prior to July 1st, when his no-trade clause would kick in, and it appears Los Angeles could be the front-runner, citing how the Kings management quietly let it be known a couple of months ago they would pursue a big name player, and given their depth in young talent they could make "a hockey deal" which is something the Lightning would prefer. Spector continues: If Lecavalier is traded I believe the Kings would have the inside track as they can offer up a much better return to the Lightning in affordable young talent than the Montreal Canadiens. And the Kings do have talent. If a boatload of it came east, would the impact on the Panthers and rest of the Southeast be felt immediately? This has the potential to replicate - in spirit anyway - the Lindros for half-the-Nordiques roster back in the day. And overnight, the Nords were contenders. Could the Bolts catch Lightning in a bottle? (Wow that sucked.)

Schenn and the Rumors


To bear witness to the quick reports and reactions on rumors from Toronto yesterday, bare witness to the Toronto Sun article showing how Luke Schenn found out about trade rumors: Through pal Steven Stamkos who not only heard about the rumors on the radio, but had his GM (Brian Lawton) call to inquire about Schenn first hand.

Camden-Courier Post: Freighter-load of Philly assets for Anderson, Bouwmeester negotiating rights?


Sounds ridiculous but here's the speculation: The Flyers may try to package the likes of forwards Joffrey Lupul, Danny Briere and James van Riemsdyk, defenseman Ryan Parent and/or a first-round draft pick in a deal for the rights to Panthers' defenseman Jay Bouwmeester and Anderson. Just for the rights. That's a heckuva lot. Briere's a salary dump, and probably on his way out of town regardless (and we'll see how ironclad that NTC is). Lupul has been an integral piece of every Flyers rumor since the day he was acquired. Parent is expendable due to the (potential) addition of Bouw. Forward (and second overall pick in '07) van Riemsdyk - not to mention the draft pick - are the true gems. No matter what, there's always going to be a small but loud contingent declaring any deal a failure.

Ottawa Sun: Panthers had two significant offers for Bouwmeester

"Looking for two players, a prospect and a draft pick, NHL sources say Martin resisted offers from the Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks at the deadline. Instead, the Panthers will make a concerted effort to try and sign Bouwmeester before he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1." - Bruce Garrioch

G&M's Duhatschek: Jacques Martin's dilemma: Bouwmeester

"If there is almost no chance of signing Bouwmeester to an extension, shouldn't Martin extract as much as he can now to preserve the value of his organization's most important asset?"
