- Andrew Gross: Hurricanes Alex Semin missed last night’s game with an upper-body injury and is day-to-day.
- Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson will likely get suspended for his hit on Martin Erat, but it’s the NHL, so you never know. How many games do you think he should get?

- Sarah McLellan: Coyotes goalie Mike Smith hopes they can get a contract done, but wouldn’t say if both sides were working on one.

- Capgeek: Sources say the Wild will get 15% of Jason Pominville’s contract, $200,000 this year and $795,000 in cap next year.
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: After trading for Ben Bishop, Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said he’s not giving up Anders Lindback.
“By no means am I giving up on Anders Lindback, not a chance,” Lightning GM Steve Yzerman told ESPN.com Thursday. “He’s a good young goalie. And I made a commitment by trading for Anders Lindback, and I believe Anders Lindback has the ability to become a good starter in this league.
“I want to provide him with the support he needs, and part of that support is having a good partner. I want the best possible tandem I can put together moving forward.”
The Lightning kicked tires on Jonathan Bernier but the price was too high.
- The Fourth Period: The Kings tried trading for a 2nd line winger at the deadline but came up empty. They made calls on Drew Stafford, Jason Pominville and Curtis Glencross. The Kings wouldn’t give up the top prospects and high draft picks for Glencross. Source said that they would trade Tyler Toffoli, but not for a rental.
- Mark Ludviczak of the Globe and Mail: The Sabres are in a rebuild, Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller are uncertain about their futures.
“I haven’t talked to them about anything so it’s hard to say yes or no because no one has let me know what direction this is heading,” Vanek said. “So we’ll finish the year out and I’m sure, at least I would expect them to let me know what the future is.”
“I don’t know, I have to talk to Darcy about it,” Miller said. “We’ll just see where everything falls and talk to Darcy about what his plan is or what’s going on because these are conversations we haven’t had time to have.
“I don’t know if we’ll have a chance to talk about it ‘til after the season.”
- The Fourth Period: The Red Wings were trying to make a deal all week, but weren’t able to put something together. It was believed that the Wings didn’t want to part with any of their top young talent. They wouldn’t give up a first round pick for Jay Bouwmeester. The Wings also looked into Jaromir Jagr. Valtteri Filppula will be a UFA but may have interest in returning.
“It’s been a great place to be, a great team obviously,” he told the News. “You want to be on that kind of team.”
- Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune: The Sabres are picking up part of Jason Pominville’s contract. If they weren’t, the Wild would be over the salary cap. Working with Cap geek, they estimate that the Sabres may be covering $225,000 for this year, a pro-rated $900,000.
- Cap Geek: Not confirmed on the amount, but the Hurricanes could be picking up between $500,000 and $1.5 million of Jussi Jokinen’s now Penguins salary.
- Bill Watters: According to sources, the Maple Leafs offered the Coyotes Nazem Kadri, Matt Frattin and a 1st round pick for Keith Yandle. (You would assume this was ‘offered’ around Wednesday, but I wonder if it happened in the offseason, or at least sometime well before the trade deadline day)
- Bill Watters: Years ago, the Flyers offered Claude Giroux to the Lightning for defenseman Paul Ranger but was turned down by then GM Brian Lawton.
- John Hoven of Mayors Manor: Kings GM Dean Lombardi when asked if he was close to any trades on deadline day.
“No. I like our team, and I think we addressed our biggest need. And you see Matt Greene in there – we get him back, that’s like getting a player for nothing now. I didn’t see anything that was really going to improve us. Our depth up front with Toffoli and Brad Richardson, we forget about him, but he’s shown he’s a good depth player. So it wasn’t really anything there that made sense as terms of an upgrade, let alone then get to the part where if you upgrade, what’s it going to do to your cap and everything else. The other thing we were able to do on this that I really liked – and you know I’m confident in how I feel about this – we’ve got 10 picks in this year’s draft. You never want to lose sight of that part. Now, we don’t have a first rounder, but we’re going into this, we were able to keep this nucleus, get this piece here, and have 10 picks going in next year’s draft. Our eye going forward, we haven’t sold the farm by any stretch. I think we’ve got the space to keep our young players. Then hopefully…add the right veterans here going forward also. Now it’s up to our scouts to hit in the middle rounds.
Here are all the trades made today. Be sure to continue to visit myNHLtraderumors daily as there will be plenty of news, injuries and rumors to come. For all our first time visitors, we go year round, posting basically every day.

NHL Rumors VII: Kiprusoff, Yandle, Miller, Vanek, Smith, Nabokov, Bruins, Bishop, Stafford, Pominville, Luongo and Ducks
- Bob McKenzie: As per Dreger, Miikka Kiprusoff struggling with moving and expects to remain with the Flames and may retire at the end of the year.
- Nick Kypreos: The Coyotes are asking for significant pieces back for Keith Yandle if they were to move him. David Pagnotta: If the Flyers want Yandle, it would cost them Sean Couturier plus more. The Red Wings and Blackhawks have shown interest in Yandle. Sam Carchidi: Yandle has 3 years and a $5.25 million cap hit. Flyers could fit him in by moving players to LTIR. Elliotte Friedman: Price is two impact forwards. One who could be a No. 1 center. Won’t be traded unless get a deal they can’t refuse.
- David Pagnotta: “Would the Sabres trade Ryan Miller? Yes. Would they move Thomas Vanek? Yes. Are deals likely to go down today? No… unless someone steps up”
- John Vogl: Source on Thomas Vanek: ”I would be very surprised if he gets traded.”
- Pierre LeBrun: Coyotes unlikely to trade Mike Smith. They still want to re-sign him, today or at a later date.
- Arthur Staple: Source saying the Islanders are after Blackhawks Brandon Saad. Cost would be high. Craig Custance: Has been told that the Blackhawks wouldn’t consider trading Saad.
- Terry Jones: Jones disagrees that the Oilers won’t do anything.
- Arthur Staple: The Islanders and Evgeni Nabokov continue contract talks, but nothing is imminent. They won’t move him.
- Renaud Lavoie: Will be interesting to see what the Bruins do if Patrice Bergeron is injured.
- Bruce Garrioch: 6 teams that are interested in Ben Bishop: Oilers, Flyers, Flames, Coyotes, Lightning and Hurricanes. Bob McKenzie: The Coyotes are one of five teams interested in Bishop. Greater than 50% chance that he traded today.
- Bruce Garrioch: 3 or 4 teams are interested in Sabres Drew Stafford.
- David Pagnotta: The Wild, Blue Jackets, Kings and Red Wings are among the teams interested in Sabres Jason Pominville. The Blue Jackets are the only team of the four that would trade a 1st. (Blue Jackets have Kings 1st and would move it)
- Pierre LeBrun: If Sharks do anything, could add veteran depth.
- Arash Madani: Leafs GM Dave Nonis on adding a goaltender: ”At this point we’re not any closer to a trade in that area than we were a day ago.” … ”We’re not selling. That’s our position right now.”
- L.A. Lariviere: Roberto Luongo hasn’t submitted a list of teams.
- Eric Stephens: Ducks are working trades, but won’t overpay. Unlikely to move their 1st or 2nd for a center/forward.
NHL Rumors VI: Bishop, Mason, Johnson, Yandle, Fedotenko, Burmistrov, Kings, Cammalleri, Bozak, Clarkson and Connolly
- Bruce Garrioch: Senators getting interest in Ben Bishop from the Flyers, Oilers, Hurricanes and Lightning. Would like a draft pick and player.
- Renaud Lavoie: Blue Jackets Steve Mason is available and wouldn’t be expensive to get. Could use a new start.
- Dan Rosen: The Leafs could do nothing regarding their goaltending situation. If it doesn’t work out, they could always revisit Miikka Kiprusoff or Roberto Luongo in the summer.
- David Pagnotta: The Avalanche aren’t shopping defenseman Erik Johnson, same with the Coyotes and Keith Yandle, but for the right price both players could be traded.
- Frank Seravalli: Teams have called the Flyers about Ruslan Fedotenko. He wouldn’t bring a big return if they decide to move him.
- Bruce Garrioch: The Jets are shopping center Alexander Burmistrov.
- David Pagnotta: Pagnotta wouldn’t be surprised if the Kings added a 2nd line winger. They may prefer a left winger.
- David Pagnotta: Teams are calling the Flames about Mike Cammalleri, but nothing is serious.
- Darren Dreger: Oilers will likely stand pat, but could add a depth forward.
- Darren Dreger: There is discussion, but no hard negotiations involving the Maple Leafs and Tyler Bozak.
- Pierre LeBrun: Nothing new on David Clarkson contract talks.
- Kevin McGran: Marlies coach Dallas Eakins has made Tim Connolly a healthy scratch for today’s game.
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- Bruce Garrioch: Flames Miikka Kiprusoff will likely make a decision on his future later this morning. Option to Maple Leafs is there. Darren Dreger: Sense is that Kiprusoff would accept a trade to the Maple Leafs. Concern is next year and year after.
- Michael Russo: The Wild are looking to upgrade, but they won’t mortgage the future.
- Bob McKenzie: Hurricanes Joni Pitkanen’s injury doesn’t mean they won’t trade defenseman Jamie McBain for the right offer.
- Pierre LeBrun: The Bruins are looking to a rental defenseman.
- Darren Dreger: Islanders GM Garth Snow said there is no intention to trade defenseman Mark Streit. There is a only a $500,000 per year gap on a 3 year deal. Katie Strang: Streit looking for a multi-year deal worth more than Visnovsky’s $4.75 million. As of yesterday, the Islanders have told Streit that he won’t be dealt.
- Pierre LeBrun: Teams are asking the Panthers about defenseman Dmitry Kulikov. He’s not untouchable, but they would need a big offer.
- Darren Dreger: Rangers looking for a defenseman.
- Darren Dreger: Jets hoping to land a top-6 forward, but nothing close for them.
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- Damien Cox: The Maple Leafs and Miikka Kiprusoff’s agent will continue talks this morning. Could be 50-50 at best.
- James Mirtle: Mirtle wouldn’t be shocked if the Maple Leafs did little today. GM Dave Nonis may be looking for bargains.
- Ansar Khan of MLive: The Red Wings would like to add a top-four defenseman or a top-six forward, but won’t give up a first round pick. Several options have already been traded.
“With the people that were moved the last couple of days, in most cases I talked to those general managers,” Red Wings GM Ken Holland said on Tuesday. “I don’t know that there’s a lot out there. We’ll see what happens (Wednesday).”
Red Wings GM Ken Holland won’t be looking for depth players.
“We made some competitive offers on a couple of players,” Holland said. “Some players we couldn’t get in the mix on. I’ll explore until the deadline.”
The Wings inquired about Jaromir Jagr and Jay Bouwmeester. Players the Red Wings might be interested in: Derek Morris, Mark Streit, Ryan Whitney, Keith Yandle, Curtis Glencross, Tomas Fleischmann, Jason Pominville, Mike Ribeiro and Drew Stafford.
- Kevin Allen: GM Holland is still looking, but would be fine if he ends the day with the same team.
- Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post: Flyers coach Peter Laviolette doesn’t think the Flyers are on edge about the deadline. GM Paul Holmgrem said on Saturday that he didn’t expect to be a buyer. The Flyers are six points out. They don’t have much to offer up if they decide they want to make a playoff push. Possible trade bait in Daniel Briere, Max Talbot and Braydon Coburn are all out with injuries. If they are looking to add a defenseman, they could look at: Jamie McBain, Ryan O’Byrne, Erik Johnson, Ryan Whitney, Derek Morris and Keith Yandle.
- Bruce McCurdy of the Edmonton Journal: Oilers GM Steve Tambellini on if it will be a busy trade deadline day.
“Hard to tell. We’re talking to a lot of teams about different options, short-term, long-term … I really won’t know until I get there on Wednesday.”
McCurdy lists some Oilers who could be traded: Ryan Whitney, Ales Hemsky, Ryan Jones, Eric Belanger, Ben Eager, Mark Fistric, Nikolai Khabibulin, Magnus Paajarvi and Theo Peckham.
- Andrew Gross: The Rangers expect to Ryane Clowe in the lineup tomorrow night against the Penguins.
- Bob McKenzie: The Jets have signed 2012 1st round pick Jacob Trouba to an entry-level deal.
- Bob McKenzie: Put on waivers today: Flyers Kurtis Forster, Panthers Mike Santorelli, Blackhawks Steve Montador and Rostislav Olesz, Canucks Cam Barker.
- NESN: Bruins center Patrice Bergeron left their game in the 2nd period after taking a hit to the head. Bergeron was hit by Senators Colin Greening while both were fighting for the puck. He skated directly off and the team announce he won’t return. He has a history of concussion issues.
- Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanenis stretched off after chasing down an icing call.
NHL Rumors V: Flyers, Jagr, Clowe, Bouwmeester, Jokinen, Blue Jackets, Wisniewski, Ribeiro and Oilers
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- Sam Carchidi: The Flyers have had exploratory talks for Jaromir Jagr, Ryane Clowe and Jay Bouwmeester.
- Josh Rimer: Adds that the Flyers are talking with the Hurricanes about Jussi Jokinen.
- Darren Dreger: The Blue Jackets will be a buyer at the trade deadline and would be willing to move one of their three first round picks. (Kings and Rangers)
- Aaron Portzline: The Blue Jackets have depth down the middle and on the blueline. They could use one of those plus a first to acquire a scoring winger.
- Aaron Portline: Blue Jackets Adrian Aucoin could get them a late-round pick from a team looking for depth. The Blue Jackets may want to keep him for his leadership.
- Aaron Portzline: The Canadiens had interested in Blue Jackets defenseman David Savard. John Moore has also been a healthy scratch.
- Aaron Portzline: The Blue Jackets would trade James Wisniewski, but it’s hard to imagine anyone taking on his contract with all him injuries.
- Pierre LeBrun: Mike Ribeiro’s agent spoke with the Capitals on Friday and will talk again today or tomorrow.
- Darren Dreger: The Oilers are considering keeping Ryan Whitney for their playoff push and signing Nikolai Khabibulin for another season.
From twitter unless otherwise noted
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Source saying that the Senators have received several calls for Ben Bishop in the last day or so. They may be more inclined to wait until the summer to figure out their goalie situation. If a top-six forward was offered up for Bishop, then he could be moved and they would run with Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner.
Sergei Gonchar will likely be saying with the Senators.
Hurricanes Jussi Jokinen is getting interest, but only if the Canes take a player back.
Still no contract talks between the Devils and pending UFA David Clarkson. Not that surprising with Lou at the helm.
- Darren Dreger: Hurricanes defensman Jamie McBain is on the trade market. They’ll get some offers for him.
- Darren Dreger: The Sabres haven’t received an offer for defenseman Robyn Regehr that has been worth approaching Regehr his approval.
- Pierre LeBrun: Stars debating on whether to trade Jaromir Jagr or sign him. He’s getting lots of interest.
- L.A. Lariviere: Jaromir Jagr’s agent, ”Jaromir likes Dallas, he likes the team. We’ll have to see if the interest is mutual” There are no contract talks scheduled as of now. On if it’s possible that Jagr is traded, ”anything’s possible right now.“
- Renaud Lavoie: There won’t be anymore contract talks between the Stars and Derek Roy. Canucks are interested.
- Mark Masters: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis: ’The calls have picked up but its been relatively slow so far’ … ’I would prefer a hockey trade where we’re giving up some assets & getting assets back. Difficult to find that right now.’ On if he wasn’t able to make a deal, ‘I wouldn’t be disappointed at all’
- Chris Johnston: Nonis, ”Some (available) players it would be a reach just to say they can help you.”
