Sources are reporting that negotiations between Neal and the Dallas Stars aren't going too well. The Stars have a glut of left wingers and maybe Neal just isn't in the picture. He'd make a great trading piece.
The Washington Capitals are still looking to make a trade. They are most likely looking for a tough defenseman as they were one of the teams interested in Kevin Bieksa. Sources are saying that the Capitals' main trading piece is winger Tomas Fleischmann.
He had been rumored to go to Vancouver for Bieksa earlier. It makes sense that he is still on the trading block.
Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe is reporting that former Bill Masterson trophy finalist Jed Ortmeyer is still looking for a job and that the Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings have some interest in him.
Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
