Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jay Feaster at the Hockey News,
This season, we’re not sure whether we’ll be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. We’re not looking to raise the white flag right now, both from the standpoint of our team and our fans and also our market. That’s one of the benefits of having the deadline earlier, because if you are still in it, you’re probably going to be disinclined to be a seller. You’re not going to say: “Well, we don’t think we’re going to make it,” when you’re only sitting two, four or six points out with a lot of hockey still to be played.
Danny Boyle’s return to our lineup will also affect our thinking at the trade deadline (he’s been out with a wrist injury for most of the season). We haven’t put a timeframe on it, because Boyle still has to go through the rehab process and reach different milestones the doctor has asked him to achieve. But having him back will be huge.
