Trade deadline morning update: Phaneuf yes, Phaneuf no? St. James says Zidlicky an option

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated 8x @ 11:37 AM: Well, you can take this for what you will, because TSN is reporting one thing and Sportsnet is reporting another...

This morning, with Jeff Petry off the board, the Free Press's Helene St. James reports that the Red Wings may end up targeting Marek Zidlicky...Or Phaneuf:

The most high-profile defenseman whose name has been discussed internally is that of Toronto's Dion Phaneuf. He's big (6-feet-3, 214 pounds), in the prime of his career (turns 30 in April) and provides offense (117 goals and 277 assists in 731 career games with Toronto and Calgary).

It's always about the price, of course, and Toronto surely would want a starting payment of a first-round pick, something that Wings general manager Ken Holland has said he's not surrendering. Then again, add Phaneuf, gamble on going deep into the playoffs, and that first-round pick would be near the end of the round.

The Wings have scouted New Jersey Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky very heavily for the past few weeks. He just turned 38, shoots right-handed (Phaneuf shoots left) and had 12 goals and a 30 assists in 81 games for the Devils last season. He has four goals and 19 assists in 63 games this season.

St. James continues, and as we wait for practice news, the Wings' website has Erik Cole wearing #72.

Update: Via Paul, the Hockey News's Ken Campbell claims that the Maple Leafs want Brendan Smith in exchange for Phaneuf:

Tick Tock Kenny. Tick Frigging Tock.

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I like the Cole move. Gritty. Veteran. Rental. Here for four months and gone. Deal.

And it's Kenny's show today.  There's a different feel about it then past (futile) years. I'm thinking there's more to come.

I'm thinking Phaneuf (more toughness with Cole) and if Phaneuf comes?

Video- Sportsnet Breaks Down The Erik Cole Trade

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

via Sportsnet,

Erik Cole is known to be a player that needs to be comfortable, so it will be interesting to see how he interacts with tough-guy coach Mike Babcock on the Red Wings.

Don’t Do It Toronto

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Grange of Sportsnet,

The temptation is there. Within the Toronto Maple Leafs front office it’s likely bordering on something near a compulsion:

We must trade Dion Phaneuf or Phil Kessel – and ideally both – before the 3 p.m. Monday NHL trade deadline.

I’m here to say: don’t do it. This is not the time to shed the Leaf’s best forward and best defenceman.

The reason is simple: The Leafs don’t know if they’re going to draft Connor McDavid yet, and won’t until the NHL draft lottery is held after the regular season ends.

Drafting McDavid could change everything, including the potential roles for the likes of Phaneuf and Kessel. At the very least their value doesn’t diminish between now and then.

The case for getting rid of the pair is obvious: Each are symbols of a maddening, bloated, rotted present and relics of a failed past, full of wrecked transport trucks and seasons that start out full of promise before crumbling under the weight of their own analytics.
