A quick look at possible moves by Detroit, Boston, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
DETROIT NEWS/MLIVE.COM: Red Wings GM Ken Holland is hoping to add a forward with size and grit by today’s deadline. Options include Montreal’s Travis Moen, Columbus’ Samuel Pahlsson, Washington’s Mike Knuble, Buffalo’s Paul Gaustad. Holland isn’t expecting to shop for a defenseman despite losing Jonathan Ericsson for a month to a fractured arm.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: To summarize: Red Wings and Bruins likely to make moves today, the Flyers may or may not, and if so, it’ll be depth moves, not a blockbuster deal, while the Penguins aren’t expected to make any significant moves today.
