The NHL trade deadline is tomorrow. Get the latest on the Bruins, Jets, Flames, Blackhawks, Red Wings, Panthers and Avalanche.
CALGARY HERALD: Following Jay Bouwmeester’s trade to St. Louis last night, George Johnson wonders which Flame will be next on the trade block. Miikka Kiprusoff, Mike Cammalleri and Curtis Glencross could become trade candidates.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Maple Leafs were given permission yesterday to speak with Kiprusoff’s agent, and Glencross is starting to pop up in trade speculation. One or both could be gone by the deadline tomorrow.
CSNNE.COM: Joe Haggerty lists Ryane Clowe, Dan Boyle, Jaromir Jagr, Mark Streit and Curtis Glencross as potential trade deadline targets for the Boston Bruins.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Of this bunch, Glencross’ style of game could make him the best fit on the Bruins, provided the Flames are willing to move him, and he’s willing to accept a trade.
WINNIPEG SUN: Ken Wiebe reports Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff could be a buyer and a seller at the trade deadline. The Jets are believed in the market for a top-six right winger, but Cheveldayoff is willing to expand his focus.
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES: After acquiring center Michal Handzus from San Jose yesterday, Mark Lazerus reports Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman isn’t ruling out other moves before the trade deadline, but isn’t looking to move out any current roster players. It’s possible he stands pat if he finds nothing worthwhile in the trade market.
DETROIT NEWS: Gregg Krupa reports Red Wings GM Ken Holland isn’t interested in acquiring marginal talent at the trade deadline. ”If we can do a legitimate trade to acquire a player that we think is a legitimate top-nine or a top-six forward, or a legitimate top-four defenseman, then we’re going to look,” he said. ”Unless we get that, I don’t think we have a deal.”
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Wings had interest in Jay Bouwmeester before he was shipped to St. Louis last night, but obviously Holland doesn’t want to part with promising young assets or core players.
DENVER POST: Mike Chambers doesn’t expect the Colorado Avalanche to be very busy at the trade deadline.
MIAMI HERALD: David J. Neal doesn’t expect the Florida Panthers to make any significant moves at the deadline. Most of the players they’d consider moving are sidelined by injuries, and they have no interest in moving any of their promising young players.
