Bob McKenzie, Darren Dreger and Pierre LeBrun had their weekly Insider Trading segment this evening with host James Duthie:

  • Bob McKenzie: Sergei Gonchar and Ray Whitney could be available from Dallas. Neither are "thriving" under Lindy Ruff, Whitney is a rental and Gonchar has two more years left at $5 million per year on a over 35 contract.
  • Pierre LeBrun: One team looking to add is the Anaheim Ducks. They are targeting a right handed defenseman and Dan Girardi is a player of interest. The Rangers are telling teams that they won't trade Girardi and that they will instead sign him. Ryan Callahan's negotiations are not as far progressed as Girardi's, it may be hard to get both signed and Girardi, at least now, looks more likely.
  • Darren Dreger: LA would like to add more scoring and more skill, the sense is that they will have to wait until closer to the trade deadline on 3/5. They are looking at rental players like Mike Cammalleri, Tomas Vanek, Matt Moulson, that type of player.
  • Bob McKenzie: Ryan O'Reilly can be traded five days before the trade deadline since that is the one-year anniversary of his offer sheet and the league prevents players who sign offer sheets from being traded for one-year.
  • Pierre LeBrun: If O'Reilly is put on the market he would be the top players on the market and the Canucks would be interested. He fits all of their needs and they have an abundance of defenseman which would meet what Colorado is looking for.
