NHL Trade Deadline News & Rumors / The Day Before The Madness

I will be in and out today (kids school field trip) and may not update the site a quick as I would want. But have no fear my friends, follow me on Twitter for up to date NHL news and Rumors.

These are the guys most likely to be traded or be involved in a lot of action/talk today;

1- Ethan Moreau (The Oilers are trying hard to make a deal to send him away. The Kings and Leafs are interested. The Oilers will take anything in return.)

2- Ray Whitney (A number of teams want his services. But he can be picky as he can decide where he goes. The one place I heard he likes is the Penguins. But are they willing?)

3- Lubomir Visnovsky (The Devils and the Bruins want Visnovsky. I would suspect that one of them will make a deal for him today.)

4- Alexander Frolov (He will be traded before tomorrow's deadline. I keep hearing Montreal and the Rangers as the two main teams interested. But look for the Kings wanting a scoring forward in return.)

5- Paul Kariya (I am not kidding when I say he wants to be a Canuck. He wants to retire in Vancouver and Vancouver needs his skill to get to the "next level".)

6- Teemu Selanne (The New Jersey Devils have shown a lot of interest in Selanne. They could use his scoring touch.)

7- Raffi Torres (He was once dubbed useless, and he's now coveted. The Penguins and the Flyers are after him.)

8- Scott Niedermayer (After his gold medal leading run, teams want him again. I was told the Devils, Flyers and Rangers have been pushing for him. I was also told by my friend in Anaheim, he will be traded. I think I'll trust him.)



The Boston Bruins (The want a defenseman. How far will they go to get one? Is it Visnovsky? Is it Ryan Whitney? Is it Dan Hamhuis?)

The Edmonton Oilers (They need to shed some salary. Moreau, Pisani, Souray, Visnovsky, O'Sullivan, Cogliano, Comrie and Staios are the choices.)

The Pittsburgh Penguins (They would like to acquire a winger for Sidney Crosby) **EDIT** They acquire from Toronto Alex Ponikarovsky for Luca Caputi and Martin Skoula.

The Atlanta Thrashers (They want to add another forward. Is Frolov the guy?)

The Florida Panthers (They have some big time salary to shed. When a team is in rebuild mode they will take just about anything. Horton, Dvorak, Reinprecht and Allen area all expendable.)

The Nashville Predators (Dan Hamhuis is up for sale and I'd expect this team to do some additional wheeling and dealing.)

The Columbus Blue Jackets (The are only looking to add draft picks. Anyone is up for grabs if the other team is offering picks.)

The New York Rangers (Silently waiting for a good deal to come around. I hear it's close, but no one wants Wade Redden and he will be in any deal.)

The New York Islanders (The have an extra goalie and are willing to deal. They are leaning to trading Roloson. He has a higher value than Biron.)

The Montreal Canadiens (They also have a goalie to deal. Carey Price is the odd man out now. Halak impressed the Habs at the Olympics.)
