Trade Rumors: Not So Lazy Sunday

11/29/2009
2008 NHL Entry Draft, Round One

Just a couple of trade rumors going around the league.

  • The Columbus Blue Jackets are not looking to make a move at the moment according to Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch.  As of this writing only two teams have less wins than the Blue Jackets in the last ten games, the Oilers and Hurricanes.
    GM Scott Howson believes the team as it is currently constructed needs to and should improve.  If we profile Howson a bit we can see he tends to bring in younger players via trade, picking up Fedor Tyutin and Antoine Vermette in separate deals last season.  If he was to make a move like this, it would likely have to be later in the year when more teams fall out of the race.  It could also involve moving a valuable young player who has fallen out of favor such as he did with Pascal Leclaire and Nikolai ZherdevNikolai Filatov anybody?
  • Chris Botta’s Islanders Point Blank reports that the Islanders will spend cap room to make the playoffs.  As Botta mentions, the Isles need two top six forwards preferably a center and left wing.  With their salary cap situation the way it is, GM Garth Snow can make a salary dump type move and acquire a good player without giving up a high draft pick or solid prospect.  A quick look around the League renders very few clear-cut sellers.  Pure speculation but Paul Kariya or Matt Cullen would make sense if their teams decide to sell.
