[RUMOURS] Daily TSN Trade Rumours.


Recommended Posts

Horvat, Jensen Unproven they might never play in the NHL.

Edler - back issues may never live up to his potential

Tanev - I think the best player in this trade proposal but lacks offensive skill

1st - you're going to need it to get a Norris winning defense men who is only 24.

You can laugh at it all you want but if you want to get Subban out of Montreal that's what its going to cost.

And the point is?

I have no doubt that Subban is not on offer, and you might have to overpay to get them to put him on the market. Does that mean anybody cares and will overpay like that?

The Buffalo Sabres' trade deadline objectives could extend far beyond dealing Ryan Miller.

TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger reported this week that general manager Tim Murray is listening in on offers for almost every player on the roster and McKenzie added Friday that while there's no guarantee he'll be traded, the Sabres have asked blueliner Christian Ehrhoff for - as his no-trade clause stipulates - a list of eight teams he doesn't want to be traded to.

Ehrhoff, 31, signed a 10-year deal with the Sabres worth $40 million in 2011. He earned $18 million in the first two years of the contract. The deal then pays $4 million from years three to six and he'll collect $3 million in year seven. He then earns $1 million in each of the remaining three years.

Ehrhoff has six goals and 28 points in 57 games with the Sabres this season.

Eyes On Brodeur?

Randy Miller of NJ.com writes that Chicago Blackhawks director of player personnel Pierre Gauthier and pro scout Dennis Bonvie attended Thursday night's Devils-Blue Jackets game, as well as Minnesota Wild assistant general manager Jim Mill. Miller mentions that, according to rumours, both teams have been linked to Martin Brodeur.

Still Shopping Around

Bruce Garrioch of The Ottawa Sun wrote this week that the Senators could be interested in St. Louis Blues winger Chris Stewart and adds that the team likely won't be involved in the race for for Thomas Vanek and Matt Moulson unless the asking price goes down.

Garrioch also reports that there's been interest in veteran blueliner Chris Phillips and forward Milan Michalek. The Sun story says it's not known if they've talked contract with GM Bryan Murray and a decision on them may have to be made before Wednesday.

Market For Mez?

Philly.com writer Sam Carchidi writes that Flyers GM Paul Holmgren faces a tough decision on pending UFS defenceman Andrej Meszaros - trade him or keep him for the stretch run.

Carchidi adds that the Boston Bruins - without Dennis Seidenberg for the season - are among the teams reportedly interested and that Bruins captain Zdeno Chara could be 'nudging the Bruins to add Meszaros.'

Carchidi also speculates that the Flyers could get a third-round pick or a prospect for Meszaros.

No Big Sales In Sunrise

Florida Panthers GM Dale Tallon may be a seller, but he won't be conducting an all-out fire sale, writes George Richards of the Miami Herald.

"We're going to do what's best for the Panthers to build a championship team," Tallon said during the recent Olympic break. "We're not blowing this thing up. If we can sell some assets to get better, we'll do that. It depends what happens in the next few weeks. We'll be aggressive either way."

There's ample trade speculation surrounding pending UFAs Tim Thomas, Brad Boyes and Tom Gilbert, but Tallon said all three, 'deserve to stick around if they so wish.' "Those guys have had good years and deserve the chance to stay," he said. "I'm happy with the way they've played, happy with their professionalism."

Richards adds that other free agents the Panthers could offer include Marcel Goc, Mike Weaver and Dmitry Kulikov.

Flip it and Reverse It?

The Buffalo Sabres made the first big move of the pre-trade deadline season by dealing Ryan Miller and Steve Ott for Chris Stewart, Jaroslav Halak and draft picks, but they are probably far from done dealing.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun believes the Sabres could look to flip Stewart before Wednesday.

LeBrun believes the Sabres may consider Stewart as a possible fit for the team's rebuilding core, given that he has one year remaining on his contract and is still only 26. However, LeBrun countered, the offers on Stewart could also be enticing to the Sabres with the Ottawa Senators believed to be interested in the forward dating back to before Friday's blockbuster.

Out of Oil

If this is Ales Hemsky's last week in an Oiler uniform, the Czech forward appears ready for whatever comes next.

It could be my last two games in this locker-room, so I better enjoy it,” the 30-year-old winger said after practice on Friday. “I want to enjoy every moment I'll spend with the guys, with my friends, with the people I know."

“I'm ready for it. I'm excited.”

With a provincial showdown with the Flames on tap for Saturday it could provide one last battle-ground for the winger, who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Strictly Business

Cory Schneider doesn't want to see his crease-mate Martin Brodeur traded, but understands that if the 41-year-old does get moved it's just part of the business of being an NHL player.

“Marty is big part of this team and has been forever. I'm not sure there is any player as synonymous with the franchise as Marty has been or is. So it wouldn't be just anybody leaving this team.

It would be the most important player in the franchise's history,” the 27-year-old netminder told The Star-Ledger.

Schneider, of course, is no stranger to speculation, having endured years of rumours in Vancouver playing alongside Roberto Luongo. The way that situation played out this off-season – resulting in his relocation to New Jersey – has shown Schneider that anything is possible.

“It would be difficult for everybody, but that's kind of what happens. I didn't think I was going to get traded and I did. It happens. It could happen to anybody.”

Is that Your Final Answer?

The Pittsburgh Penguins are reportedly ponying up in their efforts to lure Ryan Kesler out of Vancouver.

Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported a proposed deal between the Pens and Canucks that he credited to multiple sources.

“A proposed deal would send Kesler to the Penguins in exchange for Brandon Sutter, two 2014 draft picks — likely a first- and third-round — and the Canucks' choice of defensemen Simon Despres or Brian Dumoulin,” Rossi wrote on Saturday.

Rossi continued to say that it is possible the deal could involve another player going in either direction, but that Penguins' GM Ray Shero was only looking to acquire Kesler.

Goalies Gone Wild

The Minnesota Wild are apparently very much in the market for an upgrade between the pipes.

According to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Wild GM Chuck Fletcher is after a netminder and was even in on discussions for former Buffalo keeper Ryan Miller before getting priced out.

So, who fits the bill for Minny's playoff push?

Russo drops a lengthy list that spans from new Sabres acquisition Jarsolav Halak to established number ones like Martin Brodeur and Cam Ward to enigmatic Oilers netminder Ilya Bryzgalov.

Snowfall Warning?

Could this be Paul Stastny's last week as a member of the Colorado Avalanche?

The Denver Post's Adrian Dater writes that if the Avs are unable to get the 28-year-old re-upped before the deadline, they could deal him rather than risk losing him for nothing over the summer as an unrestricted free agent.

"You want to keep winning and don't want to break that chemistry, but at the same time if something happens, it happens. It's just part of the business. Some things I can't control and I just worry about what I can control — and that's playing hockey," Stastny told the Post.

Dater believes the Avs could probably expect a young defenseman in return and one that might still have time left on an existing deal or, if not, a pending restricted free agent.

Call Me, Maybe?

Jaromir Jagr is an intriguing name to watch prior to Wednesday.

The 42-year-old just became the NHL's seventh 700-goal scorer and – as a pending unrestricted free agent – could be an attractive veteran addition for many teams as they push towards the post-season.

But the iconic Czech winger cautions that any team looking for his services should probably run it by him first.

“The situation with me is I think if any team would try to trade for me they would probably ask me first if I wanted to go there,” Jagr told the Star-Ledger after the New Jersey Devils' Saturday win over the New York Islanders. “I don't have a contract (for next season) and I'm 42 years old. What if I decided to go home? Nobody is going to give any draft picks or players for me if they don't know.

“Same thing happened when I went to Boston (from Dallas last season). They called before. So I'm probably going to know what's going on before.”

Getting Creative

The Pittsburgh Penguins will try their best to acquire Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks before the Trade Deadline.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Penguins GM Ray Shero will do everything he can to trade for Kesler by Wednesday's deadline.

Dreger reports the Penguins aren't the only team showing interest in the veteran centre, however, with the Detroit Red Wings, Columbus Blue Jackets, and New York Rangers also showing interest.

Among other topics Dreger touched on was Rangers' forward Ryan Callahan's softening contract demands and the several veterans that could be on the move before Wednesday's deadline.

Surprise Trade Piece

Despite not playing a game since late November, Dallas Stars defenceman Stephane Robidas may still be a hot commodity at the Trade Deadline.

Dreger tweeted that the veteran blueliner, who has been out with a broken leg, is garnering interest. Robidas, 37, could be back by mid-March, according to Dreger.

Netminder Insurance

Heading to the playoffs, the Minnesota Wild may be looking for some insurance for rookie goaltender Darcy Kuempfer.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reports that Ryan Miller isn't likely to be the only goalie moved before the deadline, and New Jersey Devils veteran netminder Martin Brodeur could be a perfect fit for the Wild.

The Wild need another goalie with Niklas Backstrom battling injuries and Josh Harding out indefinitely after his MS flared up, and Brodeur could be receptive to a move to Minnesota where his son plays high school hockey and good friend Zach Parise on the team.

Keeping Pace

In light of the St. Louis Blues' acquisition of goalie Ryan Miller, several of the Blues' rivals in the Western Conference could make moves to keep pace with the team.

According to Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, teams like the Chcago Blackhawks, San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings, and Anaheim Ducks could be looking to add talent as well.

Names floating around for those teams include Thomas Vanek, Matt Moulson, Tyler Myers, and Andrew MacDonald.

Landing Spots

Matheson also took a look at the Edmonton Oilers and where some of their tradable assets may wind up.

Forwards Ales Hemsky and Ryan Smyth could be on the move while defenceman Nick Schultz may also be traded. Schultz is one of several defencemen Matheson reports the Boston Bruins are looking at, with others including MacDonald, Chris Phillips, and Andrej Meszaros.

Pressing Forward

Despite not being in a playoff spot as of Monday, the Ottawa Senators are expected to be buyers at the Trade Deadline.

Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said during Sunday's Heritage Classic that his team is definitely not going to be sellers this season.

John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports that recently acquired forward Chris Stewart is a candidate to be flipped to the Senators before the deadline.

Blue line help for Red Wings?

In addition to what he reported in Insider Trading, TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun wrote on ESPN.com that the Detroit Red Wings are believed among the teams looking at defenceman Christian Ehrhoff. More than half of Ehrhoff's $40 million contract will be paid out by the end of the season.

Where Could He Go?

The Vancouver Province's Ben Kuzma writes that Ryan Kesler won't waive his no-trade clause for the Columbus Blue Jackets and adds that the Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings are the front runners for his services. Kuzma speculates that Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier could address the Canucks' needs if Philly is in the mix.

Options for Columbus

Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch examines some deadline options for the Blue Jackets, which includes adding an experienced defenceman, and a gritty forward. Portzline adds that the team could hold on to Marian Gaborik - up to the trade deadline - to see he will generate a good return. If not, they could keep him for the rest of the season. The column also speculates trading forward Cam Atkinson if they can make an improvement in return.

Never Count Out Pittsburgh...

Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says says Kesler, defenceman Marek Zidlicky of the New Jersey Devils and Edmonton's Ales Hemsky are among the players the Penguins have interest in going into Wednesday's deadline.

...Or Philly For That Matter

According to Frank Seravalli of The Philadelphia Daily News, the Flyers have tabled a 'substantial offer' for Kesler and are also interested in Canucks defenceman Alex Edler.
