Wednesday Hockey Thoughts

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

- It is believed the six teams to which Kesler would accept a deal at the deadline were Anaheim, Chicago, Colorado, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. Only two -- the Ducks and Penguins -- were really in it, though.

- Heard a couple times now that Edmonton took a long look at Buffalo's Tyler Myers. That's getting shot down. Think the name came up, but it was decided pretty quickly there wasn't a match.

- Got to give Brian Burke credit for the retained salary idea. How many of the deadline deals would have happened without it? Think it was 10 trades that involved some retention. Among them: Edmonton kept money on Ales Hemsky and Nick Schultz,  Philadelphia on Andrej Meszaros, and Carolina on Tuomo Ruutu.

much more including a lot of Vancouver talk...
