2012 Trade Deadline

Northeast: B's solid; Leafs, Sens seek extra pieces

Friday, 02.10.2012 / 11:38 AM / 2012 Trade Deadline

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The trade deadline is fast approaching, and teams around the NHL are trying to decide whether to buy or sell, and what needs can be or should be addressed. Increased parity in recent seasons has limited the number of teams willing to sell until the final days before the trade deadline, but there have still been plenty of deals and big names on the move.

This is going to be a division-by-division look around the NHL and the different needs, both in the short- and long-term, each club might be looking to remedy between now and Feb. 27.

A quick note: the salary cap information comes from the web’s unquestioned authority on the subject, www.capgeek.com. Acquisition space is different than a team’s salary cap space -- it is how much salary a team can add on that day and be in compliance from then until the end of the season. The number changes daily, but each team’s figure for this exercise will be what it was on Feb. 4 unless that team makes a major move.

Deadline Diner: Long trip could decide Ducks' route

Friday, 02.10.2012 / 10:22 AM / 2012 Trade Deadline

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The calendar has flipped to February, and in the course of this NHL season that means it is trade deadline month. There were a couple of interesting trades in January, but hockey's swapping season is likely to pick up in the coming days. Here at NHL.com, we will bring you a daily roundup of reported rumors about who might be available and which teams might be looking to make a move for your lunchtime consumption in Deadline Diner.

ANAHEIM: So maybe the Ducks aren't cooked just yet. Anaheim, on the strength of an 11-2-2 run, has halved what was once a 20-point chasm between the Ducks and the No. 8 position in the Western Conference. Now the Ducks will embark on the second of two mega road trips this season, and it will go a long way to determining if Anaheim can complete a miracle run -- or if it is time for GM Bob Murray to sell.

Deadline Diner: Nash exiting Columbus still possible

Wednesday, 02.08.2012 / 11:38 AM / 2012 Trade Deadline

Dave Lozo - NHL.com Staff Writer

February is one week old, and in the course of this NHL season that means it is trading season. There were a couple of interesting trades in January, but hockey's swapping season likely will pick up in the coming days. Here at NHL.com, we will bring you a daily roundup of reported rumors about who might be available and which teams might be looking to make a move for your lunchtime consumption in Deadline Diner.

COLUMBUS: Does Rick Nash want out? The Jackets captain hasn't said that publicly, but John Shannon of Sportsnet is hearing otherwise.

Rick Nash
Right Wing - CBJ
GOALS: 17 | ASST: 18 | PTS: 35
SOG: 206 | +/-: -21
From his column on Feb. 6, Shannon writes: "I have received a couple of calls from friends of Nash, who claim that Rick is very unhappy with the way the franchise is going and realizes it will take five more years to rebuild, again. Nash is now telling people close to him that he would entertain being moved, but still will not be the one who asks for a trade."

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun said two days earlier that the Rangers and Kings have interest in Nash, but his $7.8 million cap hit would make it difficult for either team to acquire his services. Both teams would have to shed significant salary in order to attain Nash.

Deadline Diner: B's, Hawks pursuing similar targets

Saturday, 02.04.2012 / 11:33 AM / 2012 Trade Deadline

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The calendar has flipped to February, and in the course of this NHL season that means it is trade deadline month. There were a couple of interesting trades in January, but hockey's swapping season is likely to pick up in the coming days. Here at NHL.com, we will bring you a daily roundup of reported rumors about who might be available and which teams might be looking to make a move for your lunchtime consumption in Deadline Diner.

BOSTON: After tearing through the NHL for two-and-a-half months with a level of dominance not seen in many years, the Bruins' march to the Presidents' Trophy has slowed of late. Boston is 4-4-1 since the middle of January, and that has included two losses to Carolina and one to Washington without its three best players.

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli pulled the trigger on a trio of moves around this time last year, and the additions of Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly in particular were critical components of the team's run to the Stanley Cup. Given the recent form, it may increase the likelihood that Chiarelli will be busy again this month.

"The slump no doubt has added to general manager Peter Chiarelli's desire to add depth, both up front and along the back line," Kevin Paul Dupont writes in the Boston Globe. "He can do that, with a mix of draft picks and prospects, and still maintain the core group that won the Stanley Cup last June."

Deadline Diner: Hawks may be in market for a d-man

Friday, 02.03.2012 / 12:04 PM / 2012 Trade Deadline

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The calendar has flipped to February, and in the course of this NHL season that means it is trade deadline month. There were a couple of interesting trades in January, but hockey's swapping season is likely to pick up in the coming days. Here at NHL.com, we will bring you a daily roundup of reported rumors about who might be available and which teams might be looking to make a move for your lunchtime consumption in Deadline Diner.

CHICAGO: The Blackhawks have already made one move to address an area of weakness by adding center Brendan Morrison. If GM Stan Bowman has a shopping list as the trade deadline approaches, another defenseman is almost surely on it. After an 8-4 loss Thursday night, he might be thinking about adding goaltender to the list as well.

People can overreact to one bad game, especially when it is three weeks from the trade deadline, but Chicago's need on the blue line – and possibly in goal – was magnified by all of the attention Edmonton's Sam Gagner has received for his eight-point night.

Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reported two weeks ago that Bowman was looking for a defenseman capable of playing second-pairing minutes and a veteran center. He's filled one need, but the other clearly remains.

Deadline Diner: Miller's status in Buffalo on the menu

Ryan Miller
Goalie - BUF
RECORD: 13-15-3
GAA: 2.89 | SVP: 0.904

BUFFALO: It has been a trying season in Western New York, and the frustration is compounded by the incredibly high expectations after a whirlwind summer of moves to improve the club with new owner Terry Pegula in place. It has been bad times in Buffalo, but bad enough to consider trading the face of the franchise, goaltender Ryan Miller?

Hradek: Gill, Ruutu among UFA's hitting trade market

Wednesday, 02.01.2012 / 3:15 PM / 2012 Trade Deadline

EJ Hradek - NHL.com Analyst

With the Feb. 27 trade deadline less than a month away, the rumor mill will now roll into overdrive. Enjoy!

For my part, I offer you a list of 10 players (with expiring contracts) that figure to hear their names mentioned in a lot of deadline chatter during the next few weeks.
 
Trade talk aside, I figure each of these guys will be seeking out a good travel agent in the very near future.
 
Chris Campoli, D, Canadiens
 
It's been a very bumpy first half of the season in Montreal, highlighted by a coaching change and the trade of an unhappy top player in Michael Cammalleri.
 
Currently nine points out of a Stanley Cup Playoff spot, the Habs could go into seller mode if they don't make any progress in the standings by the time the deadline approaches.
 
A healthy scratch in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the visiting Sabres, Campoli figures to be among the first to get a ticket out of Montreal.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
