Joe Yerdon of Pro Hockey Talk: Through translation of a Renaud Lavoie entry, Jarome Iginla submitted a list of four teams he’d accept a trade too: Bruins, Blackhawks, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh.
Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times: Capitals Mike Ribeirosaid he’d like to re-sign but it would be on him terms/long-term. He is looking for a 4 or 5 year deal.
Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: The Bruins are looking for left-handed top-four defenseman. They inquired about Jay Bouwmeester, the asking price was high and his contract wouldn’t be easily added. Would they be interested in Ryan Whitney?
The Flyers would like to move Daniel Briere. He has a no-movement clause and feels he could be an amnesty buyout in the summer. He’d then have the choice as to where he’d end up as a free-agent.
The Flyers would trade Braydon Coburn, but he has a $4.5 million salary cap hit for the next three seasons.
The Blues would like Jay Bouwmeester, but at $6.8 million next year, they’d have to move some big cash. The Blues have been looking at Oilers Ryan Whitney.
You’d think the Blues and Lightning would have spoken about Brian Elliott. He has one year and $1.8 million left on his deal.
Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Finding help for the Penguins blue line is GM Ray Shero’s next priority. They are not optimistic about getting a top-four, but a top-six is more realistic. They could use a “big, rangy, physical guy.” Rostislav Klesla could be an option. Coyotes GM Don Maloney has been scouting the Penguins. Malone and Shero may not have talked trade yet, but it could be soon.
Mark Spector via twitter: Flames GM Jay Feaster sent an email to all teams letting them know that defenseman Anton Babchuk and Cory Sarich are available. Both players have no-trade clauses.Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: The Red Wings believe they are the front-runners for Danny DeKeyser. It’s equal ground contract wise for every team as he’s tied with an entry-level. He grew up in Michigan and has ties to the organization.
Kevin Paul Dupont via twitter: Bruins prospect Carl Soderberg’s team is about to start their 2nd round of the SEL playoffs. Would be at least another 7-10 before he could become an option for the Bruins."
Soderberg is a ways away, Sarich is available, PC is doing his due dilligence willing to add salary to next year. Have at it yah trade fienders.
PS. You don't have to agree with the writers trade proposals but you can counter...
