It's becoming unusual when a day goes by before the NHL trade deadline and there isn't at least one trade to report.
Yes, the last few days before the February 28 deadline have been filled with furious activity, more so than in years past. The latest trade in the books was the Dallas-Pittsburgh swap yesterday that started out as talks and quickly evolved into a deal involving talented young players on both sides.
The flurry of activity seems to have slowed down now to just plain old rumors. However, the amount of trades we've seen the past couple of days might change the temporary landscape in the NHL and in the media. We've already learned via Twitter that a big trade goes down whenever ESPN's Pierre LeBrun is on a flight.
Heck, at this point, the TSN Trade Deadline Special in Canada might not focus on who's available, but rather who's left.
But there's still plenty of rumors out there, from what the Stars will do with Brad Richards, to the Blues clinging to Ty Conklin. Ales Hemsky and Dustin Penner continue to be the hot names out of Edmonton, while John-Michael Liles could now be the next guy on the way out in Colorado.
If you want to know about those players and more, this is the place to be for all the latest news about the NHL Trade Deadline and the latest rumors. Because if it wasn't for the trade deadline, we might be talking about Molson Canadian becoming the league's flagship beer.
So, read on for the latest updates.
