NHL trade deadline
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello refused to say whether any teams either inquired about Brodeur’s availability or they offered him to anyone.
They made a flashy move by bringing in St. Louis, but the Rangers are not in a position to contend for the Stanley Cup this year.
The New Jersey Devils have acquired left wing Tuomo Ruutu from the Carolina Hurricanes for center Andrei Loktionov and a conditional third-round pick in 2017.
Martin Brodeur will start for the Devils against the Red Wings on Tuesday night. And then, amazingly, that could be it for the future Hall of Famer in New Jersey.
The Devils went 0-0-3 on their three-game road trip last week, losing shootouts to both Ottawa and Tampa Bay and falling in overtime to Florida.
Ok, so how are we going to keep this interesting? Because, to be quite blunt, the addition of Anders Lee to the NHL club from college is about as much action as Isles fans are going to get.
The Rangers, who are currently in ninth place, are hoping that rugged winger Ryane Clowe’s tenacity can help them climb up the Eastern Conference ladder.
It’s imperative that Rangers GM Glen Sather doesn’t make a reactionary trade after the Penguins acquire Jarome Iginla.
Affectionately nicknamed “The Hobbit” by some, Zuccarello is a gifted offensive talent whose quick-moving legs, remarkable vision and skills on the puck can cause problems for any defense.
It’s time for Marian Gaborik to shape up, otherwise he’ll be shipped out before the April 3 trade deadline.
The Rangers weren’t able to add a big name at the NHL Trade Deadline but did acquire one of the league’s toughest fighters in John Scott.
As the Monday NHL trade deadline approaches, it’s starting to become clear what to expect from the Islanders on the trade front.
Not much of anything.
While Rick Nash remains the biggest name on the trade block, the Rangers could also use an infusion of physicality and strength. Enter Ott.
For Islanders fans, the trade deadline is annually almost as frustrating as summer free agency. Fans seem to hold onto the dream that there is some magic pill to be swallowed here that will somehow solve all the team’s problems.
While acquiring Rick Nash would seem like an ideal solution for the Rangers, Columbus’ trade demands will be high. The Rangers are best off passing on Nash and keeping hold of their core.
