- Larry Brooks of the NY Post: The Blackhawks could have some cap issues in the future. Marian Hossa contract runs through 2020-21, but if the 34-year old retires before it expires, they could get hit with a minimum of $4.6 million to a max of $9.2 million salary cap hit. They have about $4.6 million to fill 6 roster spots for next season. Brooks suggests the Blackhawks may have to use an amnesty buyout on Hossa to avoid future issues. Brooks thinks the asking price for Corey Perry on the open market would be for $9.5 – $10 million for 7 years.
- Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun: With each loss, it makes it easier to trade Jarome Iginla. “The frustration of staying loyal to an organization that continually spins its wheels as time ticks away on your chance to win a Stanley Cup is clearly mounting, as Iginla takes one final week or two to decide if he wants to end his 18-year relationship with the Flames.” Iginla hasn’t yet told his agent which direction he wants to pursue. It would have to be tempting to put the Penguins, Bruins and Blackhawks on his wish it he decides to move on. The Kings could also be tempting.
- Michael Traikos of the National Post: The Maple Leafs could be both buyers and sellers leading up to the April 3rd trade deadline day. Will GM Dave Nonis look to trade their healthy scratches (Mike Komisarek and John-Michael Liles)? Turn their pending UFAs into draft picks? Acquire a top-line center like Avalanche’s Paul Stastny or stay the course? Nonis’ priority is to get the Leafs into the playoffs, and he’s made it clear he won’t mortgage the future to get there. He does realize though that they have 6 UFAs and 6 RFAs. Clarke MacArthur will be a big decision as he’s in the last year of a 3 year, $9.75 million deal. Nonis may not trade MacArthur for picks, but would he move him to the Sharks for Ryane Clowe? The Leafs will have to decide on Tyler Bozak as well.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Matheson lists the top 20 unrestricted free agents that could be dealt: 1. Corey Perry (Ana) 2. Jarome Iginla (Cal) 3. Ryane Clowe (SJ) 4. Valterri Filppula (Det) 5. David Clarkson (NJ) 6. Daniel Alfredsson (Ott) 7. Mark Streit (NYI) 8. Brenden Morrow (Dal) 9. Robyn Regehr (Buf) 10. Nik Antropov (Wpg) 11. Ron Hainsey (Wpg) 12. Ryan Whitney (Edm) 13. Nikolai Khabibulin (Edm) 14. Pierre-Marc Bouchard (Min) 15. Matt Cullen (Min) 16. Ian White (Det) 17. Ryan Jones (Edm) 18. Jordan Leopold (Buf) 19. Ryan O’Byrne (Col) 20. Stephen Weiss (Fla)
- Chip Alexander via twitter: Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said they could look to upgrade their defense but noted that they aren’t the only one. He Added they could add to their goalie “depth.”
- Bruce Garrioch via twitter: The Senators could use a top-six forward who can score. If the Wild decide to put Matt Cullen on the trade block, expect the Senators to show some interest. Corey Perry isn’t happening.
- Brian Yates via twitter: Darren Dreger said on the NHL Network that the Red Wings, Kings, Bruins, Flyers and Maple Leafs could all be after Ducks winger Corey Perry.
- Mark Spector via twitter: Predators GM David Poile on the trade market: “I have a team that’s not playing as well. I’m probably on the phone a little more than I regularly am.”
- Will DePaoli via twitter: Penguins GM Ray Shero is reaching out to teams and letting them now what he might be interested in. The Oilers could be one of those teams. A source said that the Penguins are one of the teams to ask about defensive defenseman Ladislav Smid. The Pens are open to upgrading their blue line with a big bodied defensive defenseman and a puck moving defenseman. They have a list of two or three defenseman that fits one of those needs. Top puck moving options could be Jay Bouwmeester, Mark Streit and Sergei Gonchar. Smid and Robyn Regehr could be big body targets. Other defenseman that could be available are Jordan Leopold, Ian White, Douglas Murray and Ryan Whitney. The Sharks are shopping Douglas Murray and are looking for young offensive help.
- Craig Custance of ESPN: (mailbag) Custance wouldn’t be surprised if the Sharks made a deal to improve their team. They might look at a scoring winger as they may be easier to find than a defenseman or centerman. Custance would be surprised it the Blue Jackets traded Jack Johnson. If they did consider moving him, they’d be looking for scoring in return.
- HC Trade Tracker: Ryane CloweUFA – Possible destinations according to Kypreos are the Oilers, Leafs, Penguins and Canadiens. Destinations according to Brad May are the Rangers, Canadiens, Leafs and Penguins.
- Ansar Khan of MLive: The Red Wings will determine over the next couple weeks if they will be buyers or sellers. They won’t be looking for depth type players unless they have another string of injuries. If they are to make a move, they could be looking to add a top-four defenseman or a top-six forward. Finding one of those won’t be easy and won’t come cheap.
“First off, we got to win some games; we got to be in a position where we think we’re a playoff team and it makes good business sense,” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. “If we don’t win enough games, that decision is going to be made for me.
“We got to assess our team over the next 2-3 weeks and see if we’re in a position to be a playoff team. Then we’ll explore.”
Defenseman that could be available: Jay Bouwmeester, Lubomir Visnovsky, Mark Streit, Ryan Whitney, Robyn Regehr and Ron Hainsey.
- Insider Trading Video: Realignment agreed upon, Senators, Soderberg, staged fighting, Senators, Laraque and McKinnon.
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: The Senators are looking to add a physical player, preferably one that can drop the gloves.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: Forward Carl Soderberg is hoping to join the Bruins after the Swedish Elite Leagues playoffs are over. He led the SEL in scoring. Agent JP Barry notes Soderberg as the best player in Sweden and should get lots of NHL interest if the Bruins let him go to free agency. One NHL team said that Soderberg is a solid 2nd line center. The Bruins like how Soderberg can also play the wing. Joe Haggerty via twitter: Haggerty confirms that there have been discussions between the Bruins and Soderberg.
- Joe Haggerty via twitter: The Bruins third line has been struggling and they could look to bring in a winger that would help fix the problem. The Bruins have been scouting Ryane Clowe. Jarome Iginla, Brendan Morrow and Ryan Smyth are others that might be on their trade watch list.
- Mark Spector via twitter: Oilers won’t get much for defenseman Ryan Whitney at this rate. His foot speed has taken a big hit.
- Ansar Khan of MLive: Red Wings defenseman Ian White is having trouble cracking the Red Wings lineup and spoke with GM Ken Holland about it yesterday. He hasn’t asked for a trade, nor expect to be traded. White was a healthy scratch for the fifth time this season last night.
- Andy Strickland of True Hockey: Strickland wonders if the Blues should look at acquiring Avalanche center Paul Stastny. Stastny has one year left on his deal and carries a $6.6 million cap hit. Would the Avs eat some of the contract?
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Sources are saying the Blues are looking for a left handed top-four defenseman that can play with either Alex Pietrangelo or Kevin Shattenkirk. It might have to wait until the summer as it’s not easy to find one.
- Will DePaoli via twitter: One possibility is the Flames trading Jarome Iginla to a contender and then resigning him in the summer. He may not be ready to start making $3-4 million a season.
Craig Custance of ESPN: Custance put together a list of the top 20 rental players that could be available at this year’s trade deadline or before.

- Helene Elliott via twitter: Los Angeles Kings offer Brad Richards a front-loaded contract to cover fears of lockout after next year. Elliott can’t see them going over $7 million per.

- Darren Dreger via twitter: The Maple Leafs spent an hour with Brad Richards, Pat Morris and Newport reps.

Free agent news and rumors involving: Realignment, Penguins, Yandle, Canucks, Predators and Canadiens … Could Canadiens block a Stamkos to Leafs move?
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Gary Bettman presented a major realignment proposal to the board of governors for the 2012-13 season. It involved cutting the divisions down to 4, and possibly moving the Red Wings and Blue Jackets to the Eastern Conference. It is still in the discussion stages. It would be a balanced schedule with home-and-home’s against teams outside their division. Top 4 teams in each division make the playoffs, 1st round is divisional play, then re-seed for conference play. In each conference, 1 division would have 8 teams and the other 7. One league executive, “Nobody is happy with the current format so I would expect something like this is going to be adopted.”
- Will DePaoi of Inside Pittsburgh Sports: If the Penguins don’t bring Tyler Kennedy back, and don’t come to terms with Jaromir Jagr, Radim Vrbata could be an option if the price and length are right. He’s coming off a 3 year, $9 million deal, which might mean he’d want more than the Pens could offer.
- Andy Strickland of True Hockey: Strickland looks at some ‘what if’s’ involving the Leafs, Stamkos and the Canadiens. The Lightning won’t let Steven Stamkos to go over a few million bucks if some team puts in an offer sheet. Strickland wonders if the Canadiens would try to block the Maple Leafs attempt to acquire Stamkos (through an offer sheet if Burke is being pressured by ownership to sign Stamkos) by trading for Vinny Lecavalier? The Canadiens would have send Scott Gomez plus others. “Montreal knows if Toronto gets Stamkos, the balance of power immediately shifts.”
- Andy Strickland of True Hockey: Sources are saying that Keith Yandle won’t sign before July 1st, and won’t sign before at least one of Drew Doughty or Shea Weber get a deal done. The Coyotes can’t afford to lose Yandle. His salary wasn’t high enough last year for the Coyotes to offer him arbitration, so he’s open for offer sheets. LA is trying hard to lock up Doughty, some goes for Nashville and Weber. Weber may be waiting to see what moves the Predators will make to prove that they want to be a contender. It’s unlikely that the Sharks will re-sign Ian White and Ben Eager. They are working on re-signing Devin Setoguchi. The Canucks may put Keith Ballard on waivers and send him to the minors, as they are attempting to re-sign both Kevin Bieksa and Christian Ehrhoff. Roman Hamrlik expect to get a contract offer from the Canadiens by July 1st. The Florida Panthers are about $30 million below the salary floor, and may have to take on some bad contracts as long as they come with some draft picks. Maybe Ballard could head to Florida. The Blues may look to move Barrett Jackman who’s in the last year of his contract and could be looking for something in the $5 million range. Rob Niedermayer could be dangle to Blues who are looking for an experience player or 2.
- Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail: Duhatschek offers up a bunch of questions. Could the Flames find someone to take Jay Bouwmeester? Might look good in Columbus. Would Rangers look to move Marian Gaborik to free up money for Brad Richards? Would the Senators be interested in Gaborik? Would the Coyotes be interested in Evgeni Nabokov?
- Dennis Bernstein via twitter: Bernstein thinks there is a less than 50% chance that the Kings move one of their goalies at the draft. He believes that Jonathan Bernier will be in play at some point.
