Eastern Conference- What Teams May Be Doing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Will trades be down because of the timing and the cap? NHL.com takes a look at the Eastern Conference to assess who might be looking to trade, whose selling and who is still kicking tires as the deadline nears. Philadelphia Flyers: Browsing -- The Flyers are never afraid to make the big move, as witnessed by signing Peter Forsberg this summer. What the Flyers really need is a run of good health. The team has struggled with continuity because of the injuries, not a lack of talent.

Kuba Hurting- Will He Be Traded

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pioneer Press,

For the record, Filip Kuba has an abdominal strain that will cause him to miss a second consecutive game tonight against the Los Angeles Kings, the Wild defenseman said Monday. Kuba is one of four Wild defensemen due to become unrestricted free agents who could be high on the shopping lists of teams looking for a durable top-four defenseman. Hence the club's caginess about Kuba's injury. "He's injured," Risebrough said. "We don't anticipate him out long. That's the official line." Does that mean Kuba is on the trading block? "I'm saying that the trade deadline is looming, and I'm not commenting about who I'm trading or not," Risebrough said.

Trade Talks Delayed- Many Teams Still In Playoff Race

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Across the league, GMs are citing the shift of the trade deadline back to 40 days from the final day of the season from the old mark of 26 days as a key reason why there doesn't seem to be a high level of activity in the final days before the deadline. More teams believe they are still in the race, the GMs suggest. But few believe the salary-cap system imposed as part of last summer's new collective bargaining agreement between the league and the NHL Players' Association is a factor in sluggish league-wide trade chatter.

All Things Are Equal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

"This is the way it should be," Anaheim GM Brian Burke said Sunday after his Ducks dropped a shootout decision to Columbus and remained four points out of the last playoff position. "This is what we voted for." He recalled his tenure in Vancouver, when the annual trade deadline meant big boys such as Colorado, Detroit, Philadelphia and Toronto scooped up most of the available big-name players because the small markets were unloading salary to keep their bottom line in order or were unable to obtain those players because of the same economic constraints. No more.
