Rick Sadowski  -  NHL.com Correspondent

The Ottawa Senators are looking at Friday's exchange of goaltenders with the Colorado Avalanche as a preview for a full-season run with Craig Anderson as their starting netminder.

The Senators today acquired Anderson from the Avalanche in exchange for Brian Elliott. Anderson can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, but Ottawa GM Bryan Murray hopes that situation changes between now and the summer.

"The good thing about it is we get a chance for 20-something games to look and watch him," said Murray, "and during that time period I would think we'll have discussions and we'll see where we want to be, where he wants to be. He seemed very excited when I talked to him.

One of the most talked about trades in hockey has happened.

The Toronto Maple Leafs' Tomas Kaberle, rumored to be available in a trade since before the 2009 Entry Draft, finally has a new home. The defenseman has waived his no-trade clause for a deal to the Boston Bruins, with the Leafs receiving touted prospect Joe Colborne, Boston's first-round pick in the 2011 Draft and a conditional pick.

The pick reportedly depends on whether Kaberle re-signs with the Bruins or if Boston makes it to the Stanley Cup Final. Kaberle is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The busy Boston Bruins continue to bolster their roster for a run the Stanley Cup.

Boston acquired center Rich Peverley and defenseman Boris Valabik from the Atlanta Thrashers for forward Blake Wheeler and defenseman Mark Stuart.

Peverley has 14 goals and 34 points for the Thrashers this season. He was a waiver-wire addition during the 2008-09 season but became a vital member of the Atlanta offense in the past two-plus seasons. Valabik has been back and forth between Atlanta and Chicago of the American Hockey League the past couple of seasons, playing a total of 80 games for the Thrashers between 2007-08 and last season, but none this year.

"It's not true that the deal is done with Boston. None of that is true. We continue to talk to multiple teams and we'll see where it goes." -- Brian Burke

Toronto GM and President Brian Burke tossed cold water on media reports suggesting a deal that will send defenseman Tomas Kaberle to Boston is imminent during an interview on NHL Live! on Thursday.

Burke said that Kaberle, who has a no-trade clause in his contract, has not given the Maple Leafs a list of teams he would be willing to go to before the Feb. 28 trade deadline. Burke believes Kaberle is open to a trade based on an interview he heard the player give Wednesday, when Kaberle said he would be willing to do anything to help the team, but Burke said nothing has been communicated directly to him as of yet.

Ducks send Paul Mara to Montreal

The Anaheim Ducks sent defenseman Paul Mara to Montreal late Thursday night in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2012 Entry Draft.

Mara, 31, appeared in 33 games for Anaheim this season, scoring a goal and an assist for 2 points with 40 penalty minutes. He hasn't played since Jan. 18. Mara's only goal as a Duck came with 1.7 seconds remaining in regulation in a 5-4 win on Nov. 7 vs. Nashville, marking the latest game-winning goal in regulation in club history.

It's a return to Montreal for Mara, who played in 42 games with the Canadiens last season before missing the final 30 games with a shoulder injury.

Trade deadline move changed direction of Hull's life

Wednesday, 02.16.2011 / 11:19 AM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Brett Hull vividly remembers the day that changed the course of his hockey career, probably even his life.

"So I go into his office and he says, 'Son, you've been traded.' I just said, 'Tell me it's somewhere good.' That's all I cared about. I didn't know much about St. Louis, but it was the greatest thing to happen in my career." -- Brett Hull

It was March 7, 1988. He was 23 years old.

"I was walking into the rink that day with Paul Reinhart and we were talking about [the trade deadline]," Hull, who was with the Calgary Flames at the time, told NHL.com. "He goes, 'You don't have to worry about it, you're going to be a great goal scorer for a long time and they're not going to get rid of you.'"

Oh, but the Flames did -- that very day, in fact.

"They were searching for pieces to win a Stanley Cup," Hull said.

Burke happy with return on Versteeg

Monday, 02.14.2011 / 11:00 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

"From my perspective, I think Kris, his best contributions would come on a better team.  You look at what he contributed with Chicago, he wasn't having the same impact on our group." -- Brian Burke

Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke entered this season without a first-round draft pick at the 2011 Entry Draft. Now he has one.

While he insists it wasn't a priority to land a first-rounder, Burke acquired one on Monday, along with a third-round pick, from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Kris Versteeg. The deal was struck exactly two weeks prior to the NHL's trade deadline.

"When I get my price I want to make that deal, rather than get into the stampede around the (trade) deadline," Burke told reporters on a conference call Monday night. "This was the best offer we had. It met our criteria. The package of picks was something we felt we had to take at this point. We did not feel that would be there on the 28th.

Laviolette excited to land Versteeg

Monday, 02.14.2011 / 9:05 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Philadelphia Flyers coach Peter Laviolette has plenty of time to fill out the lineup card for Tuesday's game at Tampa Bay, but he's hoping he can add Kris Versteeg's name before the puck drops at the St. Pete Times Forum.

"I have not talked to him yet, and I just spoke with (Flyers GM) Paul (Holmgren) briefly tonight, (but) I don't see a reason why he wouldn't be in the lineup," Laviolette said of Versteeg, who was acquired from Toronto on Monday in exchange for a first- and third-round picks at the 2011 Entry Draft. "I'm not confirming that 100 percent. I haven't talked to Kris yet. I know he was scrambling to move and try and get things settled, but there's no problem that I see."

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
