2013 Trade Deadline

Thomas Vanek: Should Sabres keep or move him?

Saturday, 03.23.2013 / 12:56 AM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

After Thomas Vanek scored 43 goals in the 2006-07 season, he signed a seven-year, $50 million offer sheet with the Edmonton Oilers. The Buffalo Sabres matched, and Vanek has rewarded them with a consistent high level of play.

Vanek had 40 goals in 2008-09, and has scored at least 25 goals in his first seven seasons. 2012-13 has been no different, as Vanek has ranked among the League leaders in goals and points all season.

But will Vanek keep filling the nets for the Sabres?

NHL.com examines the pros and cons to the Sabres making Vanek available to move prior to the April 3, 2013 NHL Trade Deadline:

What East teams could do at the Trade Deadline

Friday, 03.22.2013 / 9:00 AM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The races are tight and several teams are looking for the exact same thing.

Welcome to the lead-up to the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline, where unpredictability rules as the majority of general managers still aren't sure how they will approach things, or even what their approach should be, with only 12 days left before the deadline at 3 p.m. ET on April 3.

NHL.com is here to offer you a trade deadline primer, a look at all 30 teams and what they potentially could do before the final buzzer sounds on this year's trading season.

Here is a peak into the 15 teams in the Eastern Conference, in alphabetical order:

BOSBoston Bruins: The Bruins are in the hunt for the top seed in the Eastern Conference and GM Peter Chiarelli likely doesn't want to tinker too much. However, the Bruins have been included in the Jarome Iginla rumors and could look to acquire the Calgary Flames captain assuming they're amenable to the asking price. Chiarelli told NHL.com that right now the demands for sought-after players across the League are high. If the Bruins do nothing at the deadline they'd still be in a good position to make a run at the Stanley Cup.

ANAAnaheim Ducks: No GM has been busier in the past few weeks than Bob Murray, but he was doling out big-money contracts to his own players to make sure he doesn't have to dangle them at the deadline. Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry signed long-term deals and Murray insists he will not have to trade Bobby Ryan to meet his budget. The Ducks now may be considered the favorite in the Western Conference with their recent win against the Chicago Blackhawks, but it's unclear what Murray will want to do at the deadline since his team is pretty well-stocked right now.

Brenden Morrow: Should Stars keep or move him?

Thursday, 03.21.2013 / 10:35 AM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Brenden Morrow emerged with the Dallas Stars early in the previous decade, when the team was in transition. A number of the standouts who played key roles in the team winning the Stanley Cup in 1999 were aging and moving on, and Morrow was seen as the leader of the next generation of Stars.

The team awarded him the captaincy in 2006 to cement that spot, and he more than lived up to his role as a leader on and off the ice.

But injuries and time have dulled his effectiveness over the last two seasons, bringing his future with the team into question.

NHL.com examines the pros and cons to the Stars making Morrow available to move prior to the April 3, 2013 NHL Trade Deadline:

Jordan Leopold: Should Sabres keep or move him?

Thursday, 03.21.2013 / 10:26 AM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Defenseman Jordan Leopold had been a solid contributor in his first seven NHL seasons, but hit a new gear when he signed with the Buffalo Sabres in July 2010.

Never a big offensive performer previously, he had 13 goals in 2010-11 and followed that with 10 goals last season.

However, injuries and a coaching change have limited Leopold's opportunities this season. Could it be time for the Sabres to find a new home for Leopold?

Ales Hemsky: Should Oilers keep or move him?

Thursday, 03.21.2013 / 10:00 AM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

For most of the past decade, Ales Hemsky has been among the Edmonton Oilers' scoring leaders. With soft hands and great speed, he's totaled 448 points in 587 games.

But the Oilers spent most of that time outside the postseason and now that the team is rebuilding, younger, more skilled players have emerged, pushing Hemsky from the top line into more of a complementary role.

Hemsky still provides quality play, but will he continue doing it for the Oilers?

NHL.com examines the pros and cons to the Oilers making Hemsky available to move prior to the April 3, 2013 NHL Trade Deadline:

Mike Cammalleri: Should Flames keep or move him?

Wednesday, 03.20.2013 / 7:24 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Mike Cammalleri has been a solid offensive performer for most of his career, scoring at least 20 goals six times in seven seasons prior to 2012-13 -- and in the season he was short, he had 19.

The best of those seasons came in 2008-09, when he had 39 goals in his first time with the Calgary Flames.

After returning to the franchise in January 2012, he's continued to provide solid offense. But will he continue supplying it for the Flames?

NHL.com examines the pros and cons to the Flames making Cammallieri available to move prior to the April 3, 2013 NHL Trade Deadline:

Roberto Luongo: Should Canucks keep or move him?

Wednesday, 03.20.2013 / 7:20 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

When Roberto Luongo signed a 12-year contract extension in September 2009, it was assumed he would spend the remainder of his career as the unquestioned starting goaltender for the Vancouver Canucks.

However, the questions started not long after the ink was dry and got the loudest when Luongo was struggling during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs and lost his starting job to Cory Schneider.

Luongo has done well splitting time with Schneider this season, but is it a situation that's good to continue?

NHL.com examines the pros and cons to the Canucks making Luongo available to move prior to the April 3, 2013 NHL Trade Deadline:

Brad Boyes: Should Islanders keep or move him?

Wednesday, 03.20.2013 / 7:14 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

New York Islanders general manager Garth Snow generally has avoided high-cost, long-term free-agent signings. Instead, he's mined the depths of the marketplace, unearthing some real gems.

In 2009, he found 30-goal scorer Matt Moulson after the Los Angeles Kings chose not to sign him. In October 2010, Snow snagged speedy forward Michael Grabner off waivers from the Florida Panthers.

And in the summer of 2012, Snow signed Brad Boyes after the Buffalo Sabres showed no interest in re-signing the forward, and the reward has been a rejuvenated player who already has matched his full-season offensive output from 2011-12.

It's been a great comeback for Boyes, but will he finish it with the Islanders?

NHL.com examines the pros and cons to the Islanders making Boyes available to move prior to the April 3, 2013 NHL Trade Deadline:

Miikka Kiprusoff: Should Flames keep or move him?

Wednesday, 03.20.2013 / 7:10 PM / 2013 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Miikka Kiprusoff emerged as an elite goaltender almost from the day he arrived with the Calgary Flames  during the 2003-04 season.

In that first season he backstopped the Flames to the 2004 Stanley Cup Final, allowing 51 goals in 26 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He won more than 40 games three times in the following four seasons, playing an average of 75 games.

He's battled injuries this season, but at age 36 remains capable of stealing games. But will he continue to steal them for the Flames?

NHL.com takes examines the pros and cons to the Flames making Kiprusoff available to move at the April 3, 2013 NHL Trade Deadline:
