Bruins have interest in MacDonald

With the NHL trade deadline exactly a week away, it’s become the funny season for rumors, whispers, innuendo and the “word on the street” to fuel potential deals between hockey clubs. Big names like Ryan Miller, Ryan Callahan and Matt Moulson are the names most often coming up in conversation, but on the second tier is New York Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald.

Martin St. Louis only willing to go to Rangers

While the rumors surrounding Ryan Callahan, Martin St. Louis, and a potential trade have certainly heated up, there hasn’t been anything so definitive to really inspire any true assurance a deal will get done.

And while there’s no knowing whether or not Tampa Bay will trade St. Louis, we now know that he’s both requested a trade, and, according to TSN’s Bob Mackenzie, will only accept a deal that lands him with the Rangers.

“My clear understanding is, he asked for a trade, it sounds as if that trade request still is very much in affect, and he asked for a trade to only one team: the New York Rangers.”

99 per cent guaranteed that Ryan Callahan will get traded

Darren Dreger: I’m told that it’s 99 per cent guaranteed that Ryan Callahan will get traded by the New York Rangers. There are many teams involved in this process. We know that the St. Louis Blues have been the most consistent in showing interest, and there’s some connection with the Tampa Bay Lightning and other teams as well. But there’s an ongoing back-and-forth with defenceman Dan Girardi as well. Many predicted that this deal would be done by now to keep Girardi with the Rangers. If he’s not signed by March 5, the trade deadline, there’s also a 99 per cent chance that he gets traded.

Flames likely to trade Cammalleri


Sabres still shopping Miller with trade deadline looming

A person familiar with discussions told The Associated Press that general manager Tim Murray continues to pursue offers for Miller with the intention of trading him by next week.

“Tim is testing the waters as hard as he can,” the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because Murray declined to speak to reporters Monday.
