I could see carter going to LA or NY, but I'm not convinced either would overpay for Nash, which is what it will take to get him. He's friends with Joe Thornton so San jose makes some sense.

Flyers trade for :

Nicklas Grossman from DAL to PHI for 2012 2nd rd pick & FLA 2013 3rd round pick.

TSNBobMcKenzie: As per @Real_ESPNLeBrun, TB trades Dom Moore and 7th round pick to SJ for a 2nd round pick.

Depends. Contracts are pro-rated over the six-month plus season, so if there's a $6 million guy, the team that gets him basically owes him a little over $1 million. That usually only applies to guys in the last year of a contract, but there are enough of those to make the deadline interesting.

The biggest trade casualty because of the cap is the November-December trades that used to be a big part of the game. Teams would get a quarter into the season and realize they needed something -- or just a shake-up -- and pull off a big deal. Those are scarce now because teams don't have room to maneuver under the cap. Instead, the big move is to fire the coach.

Trading a 23 year old elite playmaking F for a 32 year old G would be the most retarded thing hawks GM Stan Bowman could do.

Having said that, it's Stan Fucking Bowman so something like that could happen....

However, I would not make a trade and mortgage the future. If they don't win the cup this year, fine. They still have Kreider and Bourque in the minors. They are loaded in the farm system for the time I can remember. Probably since they brought up Leetch and Erixson lol.

This year has been icing on the cake. I don't think any Ranger fan saw this type of year coming. I didn't. They should let this play out with the talent they have.

Question for you and HBF, or actually everyone I guess: What do you guys think of Michael Ryder? He'll be 32 at the end of next month and is having a great year offensively. He's only got 6 PPP though. When I mentioned his name in this Rangers podcast chat I take part in every week none of them seemed too excited when I mentioned his name. He's been through a successful playoff run just last season with The Bees. I have no idea if The Stars have any interest in dealing him though, just throwing his name out there.

You know my Rangers are finally having a good year.  I hear they are among the front runners for Nash.  I just hope I am being paranoid but I am reminded of the Carmello Anthony trade last year for the Knicks.  They had to gut the team to get him and the team is just now rebounding thanks to Jeremy Lin.  What would the Rangers be required to give up for him?  Man, they are number one right now.  Is oot worth giving up blue chip prospects or screwing up team chemistry to acquire a good player that they really don't need?

The Montreal Canadiens traded defenceman Hal Gill and a conditional 5th round pick in 2013 to the Nashville Predators on Friday in exchange for Blake Geoffrion, Robert Slaney and second round draft pick in 2012.

Gill, who has spent the last three seasons with Montreal, will be an unrestricted free agent after signing a one-year deal worth $2.25 million in the off-season.

The 36-year-old blueliner will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.

Originally drafted in the eighth round by the Boston Bruins at the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, Gill's size has made him a coveted stay-at-home presence throughout his 13-year career.

The 6'7" Gill has played with the Bruins, Maple Leafs, Penguins and Canadiens throughout his career, winning the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009.

Severe overpayment by Nashville for Gill. Makes the Flyers deal to get Grossman an absolute steal.

Nashville has to win this season. Next season they are fucked because they are going to lose Ryan Suter to free agency. Plus there could be another Labor impasse/strike/lockout next season.

The Kings & Flyers are discussing again a possible JVR for Jack Hohnson swap

The Red Wings & Flyers are in on the Pavel Kubina sweepstakes.

D-Man Matt Carle might be available from the Flyers

No shit. So few sellers = super high return for mediocre talent.

Hawks are also in on Kubina but I sort of hope they take a pass...I get the feeling Kubina could cost someone two 2nd round picks or even a first rounder, and he ain't worth that.

Sources tell TSN that the Tampa Bay Lightning have traded defenceman Pavel Kubina to the Philadelphia Flyers for second and fourth-round draft picks.

A steady two-way presence on the back-end, Kubina has played with the Lightning (twice), Toronto Maple Leafs and Atlanta Thrashers throughout his career.

Named to the NHL All-Star Game in 2003-04, Kubina would win the Stanley Cup with the Lightning that same season.

Kubina is in the final year of a two-year contract he signed with the Lightning in 2010 with an annual average value of $3.85 million. He will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Kubina was held off the ice this week by the Lightning while they tried to deal him. Tampa GM Steve Yzerman asked him for a list of five teams that Kubina would allow a trade to, as per the defenceman's no-trade clause.

Not bad deal for the Flyers. Maybe this means that Matt Carle will finally get His Head out of His Ass and start playing smart Hockey again.
