Road to Trade Deadline Day
Frequent partners?
The San Jose Sharks and Carolina Hurricanes already have made one trade today; could another be coming?

The Sharks sent defenseman Derek Joslin to the Hurricanes earlier this afternoon, but a bigger move for a blueliner reportedly is being talked about, which would involve veteran Ian White going west to San Jose.

TSN is reporting a deal is in place that would send White to the Sharks, but there's no word on what might be going back to Carolina.

A trade involving White shouldn't be a surprise. GM Jim Rutherford alluded that he was considering an offer for White, and he was held out of Wednesday's game against the Devils.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
