  1. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Ballard trade close; Kaberle trade not so much

    Jun 25, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Florida Panthers appear to be close to trading defenseman Keith Ballard, and it seems that the St. Louis Blues are the other team involved. There have been several reports that trade sending Ballard to a Western team in very close, while Jeremy Rutherford seems certain that team is the Blues. We have no word…

  2. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: More on a potential Islanders trade

    Jun 25, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A trade involving their #5 draft pick, that is. Unless some odd act of mother nature occurs and Cam Fowler drops to the fifth spot, it seems to be an increasing likelihood that the New York Islanders trade out of their spot. They aren’t in dire need for one of the remaining top defensemen, and…

  3. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Oilers attempted to trade for #2 pick

    Jun 25, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

    There’s been this undercurrent of a rumor the past few days (not all that crazy actually) that the Edmonton Oilers were hoping to make a play for the #2 overall pick in the draft, giving them the ability to draft both Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin at the same time. That would have been a…

  4. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Keith Ballard becoming a popular topic

    Jun 25, 2010, 4:04 PM EDT

    Over the past 12 hours or so one new named has cropped up in trade speculation, and this time these ‘rumors’ have some legs. The Florida Panthers have been active in Los Angeles (or at least trying to be) as they look to make some moves on draft day. It appears that defenseman Keith Ballard…

  5. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Ribeiro trade not 100% possibility

    Comments Off

    Over the past few days, the likelihood of a Mike Ribeiro trade has been steadily rising as the Stars continue their search for a top defenseman while attempting to shed some salary. With several of the centers that were supposedly available going off the market, it seemed that Ribeiro would be able to fetch even…

  6. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Festivities underway in Los Angeles

    Jun 25, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    The NHL Entry Draft is hours from going down, and amidst a flurry of trade and contracts talk the hockey crowds are starting to gather outside Staples Center. For those that haven’t been out here to Los Angeles before, I can’t imagine an odder choice for a place to hold the NHL draft but that…

  7. Flyers not ready to trade Hamhuis just yet

    The Philadelphia Flyers traded for defenseman Dan Hamhuis with the intention of signing him to a contract before the NHL Draft. Well, the draft is tonight and it doesn’t appear the two sides are anywhere closer on a deal. With both sides saying they’d like contract in place before the draft, there’s been recent speculation…

  8. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Gudbranson poised for #3 pick, Isles trading down?

    Comments Off

    I’m getting ready to head over to the Staples Center for tonight’s draft, but wanted to pass along a few more notes. First, it’s almost an absolute certainly that I’m confident in the order of the first three picks tonight. Taylor Hall will go 1st overall to Edmonton and then Tyler Seguin to Boston with…

  9. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Columbus shopping 4th pick, Ribeiro trade still likely

    Jun 25, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    With news that Tim Thomas and Jason Spezza are looking less likely to be traded, the number of big moves we were expecting before (or after) the draft is dwindling. Teams are locking up their potential free agents and the big names that might have been traded appear to be staying put — for now.…

  10. Bryan Murray: Jason Spezza not going anywhere

    Jun 25, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    It sounds like you can take one more center off the market, as Senators GM Bryan Murray is saying that he has not reached out to actively trade Jason Spezza. Speculation has soared as we neared the draft that the Senators would be sending the star center elsewhere in a trade, and according to Murray…

  11. Don't expect a Tim Thomas trade anytime soon

    Jun 25, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Kevin Dupont of the Boston Globe is reporting this morning that contrary to several reports yesterday saying that Tim Thomas’ agent was given permission to seek a trade, prompting speculation that Thomas was on his way out of Boston, the veteran netminder doesn’t appear to be going anywhere at the moment. Bill Zito, Thomas’ agent,…

    Here’s an interesting team headed into the draft. The Blue Jackets’ biggest need is for a first-line center and scoring talent up forward, while also needing some new talent in net. It would be nice if the Blue Jackets can get instant help, picking this high in the draft, and there are certainly players in…

    As is customary every year the media had a nice session with a number of the top NHL prospects here in Los Angeles, on a terrace that overlooks downtown.

    A well-oiled machine often just needs tweaking and the Sabres under GM Darcy Regier have shown they’re great at doing just that. There are lots of NHL-ready players already in their system but what they’re missing out on are guys who are big-time goal scorers. While guys like Tyler Ennis and Tim Kennedy are nice…
