  1. Winners and losers in the West

    Mar 3, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    Yeah, yeah, we know that it’s far too early to know who really won the trade deadline. Still, a team’s moves (or lack of moves) can tell you a lot about their aggressiveness, confidence and overall plan. With that in mind, let’s discuss some of the deadline’s winners and losers in the Western Conference. Winners Anaheim…

  3. Record day high on quantity, low on quality

    Mar 3, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    I’m counting on no more trades coming across, as it seems that things have finally quieted down. But the 2010 NHL Trade Deadline was about as anticlimactic as you could get after two weeks of build up of all the talk that’s supposedly been going down between the GM’s across the NHL. That’s not to…

    The deadline has come and passed, and overall it was a relatively quiet day. Here’s a rundown of all of the news and rumors from the day. We’ll be bringing you comprehensive opinion and analysis of all these moves throughout the afternoon. 4:07 p.m. – Here’s another that’s just gone down. The Hurricanes have traded…

  5. Raffi Torres says don't worry about extension, he's signing in Toronto?

    Mar 3, 2010, 2:38 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Raffi Torres is on his way to Buffalo, as he’s the latest player to be traded in the final months of his contract. He hasn’t scored more than 20 goals since 2006, but he’s on the doorstep this season with 19 goals in 60 games with Columbus. He’ll give the Sabres some needed scoring punch…

  6. Tomas Kaberle now 'considering' trade depending on the deal

    Mar 3, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Earlier today it looked like the possibility that Tomas Kaberle was traded was a remote possibility. At the very least though, I thought he should at least see what is out there for him before he’s traded away to anywhere this summer. Now, it seems things have changed. Kaberle insists he hasn’t given Brian Burke…

  7. Aaron Ward traded to Anaheim, but what was the point?

    Mar 3, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Well, I thought that Aaron Ward would make a nice addition to a playoff contending team in the final months of his great career. Instead, he’ll finish up in Anaheim playing for the Ducks. Ward is the consummate professional, has three Stanley Cup wins under his belt and it really would have been great to…

  8. Watch replay of Olympic Gold Medal Game tonight on Universal Sports

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:58 AM EDT

    Over 25 million Americans watched the game live, nearly one-third of the country had the game turned on, and in case you missed it you’ll get your chance to see what has to be considered one of the greatest hockey games ever. And if you watched it the first time, well why not watch it…

  9. Still waiting for the fun to start….

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    Still waiting for that dam to break. The biggest trade so far has been the Alexei Ponikarovsky trade, that sent a top prospect to Toronto and a great linemate for Evgeni Malkin to Pittsburgh. Since then….well, it’s been quiet. Last year was about the same, with little activity before noon on the East Coast and…

  10. 2010 NHL Trade Deadline: Derek Morris traded to Phoenix for hope and a prayer

    Mar 3, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    Derek Morris is headed back to Phoenix in what is purely a salary dump by the Boston Bruins and nothing else. The Coyotes sent a 4th round pick in 2011 to Boston (in what is widely considered a weak draft), so this was just a case of Boston needing to clear up some room in…

  11. 2010 NHL Trade Deadline: Florida Panthers are sellers at the deadline

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Stop me if you’ve heard this before. The Florida Panthers are going to be sellers today as they look to unload salary, especially as they prepare for next season. The Panther have just one player that will be a UFA this summer — Dennis Seidenberg — and he is most certainly on the block. There…

  12. Chicago decides their goaltending is just good enough to be ok

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:23 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada relays that Scotty Bowman has told FAN that the Chicago Blackhawks are not in the market for a goaltender. It’s going to be both fun and insanely scary to see Blackhawks fans’ reaction when Chicago starts falling apart in the postseason because of goaltending. While the Blackhawks have…

  13. 2010 NHL Trade Deadline: Kaberle still not planning on leaving Toronto

    Mar 3, 2010, 9:07 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Tomas Kaberle is going to be a name that in consistently mentioned as a trade target, as he should be. Yet despite the fact that he’ll most likely be traded this summer when his no trade clause is voided, Kaberle is insistent on staying in Toronto for the rest of the season. Of course, there’s…

  14. Kirk Maltby has shoulder surgery, out for season

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    The old guard is slowly disappearing. Those reliable Detroit Red Wings, the guys that have been around seemingly forever, are going out one by one. Kirk Maltby, who has been a Wing since 1996, had season-ending shoulder surgery today and it might be the end of his career with Detroit.. “There was more damage to…

  15. NHL, Bettman playing leverage game with Olympics

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:30 PM EDT

    [Editor's note:  We thought we had locked the door.  We're not sure how this guy snuck in.  We have alerted security.] So with hockey — and thus the NHL — riding an unprecedented wave of popularity after the most compelling two-week tournament in the history of the sport (that sounds like hyperbole but it’s actually…

  16. Goaltenders becoming more valuable; Roloson to the Flyers?

    Mar 2, 2010, 5:33 PM EDT

    As we inch closer to the trade deadline, it’s just a matter of waiting to see which goaltender will be the first to be traded after the roster freeze lifted. There are a number of names floating about – Tomas Vokoun, Jaroslav Halak, Dwayne Roloson, Tim Thomas, Dan Ellis – and with Ray Emery out…

  17. Ron Wilson thinks Brodeur didn't deserve such harsh treatment

    Mar 2, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

    There’s no question that Canada was under immense pressure in the Olympics, and after a stunning loss to the United States in round-robin play that pressure became even more intense for Martin Brodeur. I’m not a Canadian so I don’t have the emotional tie to the team that many had, but even I was surprised…

  18. How Steve Ott's contract extension helps the Dallas Stars long-term

    Mar 2, 2010, 4:17 PM EDT

    That the Dallas Stars signed Steve Ott to a contract extension yesterday is not surprising at all. The thought that Ott would be able to just fit into any other locker room in the NHL is a tad amusing, and really it seems the only place for him in the league at this point is…

  19. Veteran forward Owen Nolan could provide boost to playoff contender

    Mar 2, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    This may sound odd, but a 38-year old forward who has been a staple of the NHL for 20 years could be a key piece in a trade in the next 24 hours. It appears as if the Wild are likely to deal Owen Nolan, with Minnesota a long shot at best to reach the…

    Mar 2, 2010, 2:23 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If today is any sign, then tomorrow’s trade deadline action is going to be fun. Despite some rumors to the contrary, it appears that Tomas Vokoun has not told the Panthers that he would not waive his no trade clause, keeping the possibility open the could be traded before tomorrow’s deadline. George Richards of On…

  21. Isles trade Andy Sutton to Ottawa; 2nd-round draft picks a hot commodity

    Mar 2, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Apparently all you need to make a reasonable trade these days is a second round draft pick. While the going guess was that Aaron Ward would be the defenseman headed to Ottawa, the Senators have instead added veteran blueliner Andy Sutton, sending a 2010 second-round draft pick to the New York Islanders. Sutton is in…

    Mar 2, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    This morning it was first reported that Marian Gaborik would be expected to play tonight for the Rangers, after trying an playing though an injury during the Olympics. Yet he wasn’t at the team’s morning skate, and he will not be playing tonight. Gaborik: “it’s a lower body issue…I don’t think that I can really…

    Mar 2, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As we approach the trade deadline we’re starting to see the waiver wire heat up, as expected. With teams needing to make room on their roster both overall and salary wise, its a great opportunity for others to pick up useful help without having to give up anything via trade. These are usually veterans and…

    Mar 2, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    According to the Boston Herald, the Boston Bruins may be looking to trade Tim Thomas. Thomas was signed to a four-year contract extension last year in the midst of a Vezina-winning season.
