Insider Trading: Vermette, Blackhawks, Capitals, Leafs, Bruins, Petry

From February 26th’s TSN Insider Trading:

Bob McKenzie says the Blackhawks definitely want to use the money available from placing Patrick Kane on LTIR on a player with to term on his contract beyond this season. He says, at this point, the Hawks are the most interested team in making a deal before the deadline, and that Antoine Vermette is the player most in demand throughout the league. The Blackhawks are seriously interested in Vermette, but also Curtis Glencross and Cam Atkinson.

Pierre Lebrun reports that Capitals are interested in Erik Cole, Curtis Glencross and Joffrey Lupul.

Darren Dreger says there’s no guarantee that any of Joffrey Lupul, Dion Phaneuf or Tyler Bozak are traded before the deadline, there is “a lot of interest and activity” surrounding the trio.

Pierre Lebrun says the Boston Bruins have been looking for a winger for over a month. They’ve been in on Chris Stewart for a while now. They are also interested in Erik Cole, Cam Atkinson and Curtis Glencross.

Darren Dreger says a Jeff Petry trade talks haven’t produced a satisfactory offer as of yet, and re-signing is unlikely at this point, so GM Craig MacTavish continues to wait.

From February 24th’s edition of TSN’s Insider Trading:

Bob McKenzie says the Blackhawks are among the many teams that are interested in Carolina’s Andrej Sekera, as the Hawks have been extensively scouting the Canes’ defenseman. He says it sounds like Johnny Oduya is close to returning, but the team is looking to add to their blueline, regardless.

McKenzie says that Zbynek Michalek‘s concussion is concerning some suitors. He says even if Michalek isn’t in action by the trade deadline, he should still be traded, though the compensation would likely be heavily conditional.

Pierre Lebrun reports that the Los Angeles Kings are interested in both Sekera and Michalek, however the Kings are cautious about adding salary in case they need cap space should Slava Voynov be reinstated. He senses the Kings are leaning towards risking it, and taking on salary anyways. He says they would ideally like to add a top-four defenseman, and a forward due to Tanner Pearson being out of the lineup.

Darren Dreger says the Blue Jackets are testing the market for James Wisniewski, but his contract is “cumbersome”. He says Wisniewski has submitted a list of 10 teams he would not accept a trade to.

Bob McKenzie says the Habs’ trade of Jiri Sekac for Devante Smith-Pelly was fueled by head coach Michel Therrien’s lack of trust in Sekac. Pierre Lebrun reports that GM Marc Bergevin would like to add both a forward and a defenseman before Monday’s trade deadline, but he’s not going to mortgage the future to do so. He says he would be very surprised if the Habs were seriously interested in Joffrey Lupul.

Darren Dreger says that a deal involving Ryan O’Reilly is unlikely to happen before the trade deadline. He says there may be some discussion about the parameters of a contract extension, and if there’s no traction a draft day trade may be likely.

Friedman: Three Team Race for Joffrey Lupul

[UPDATE: Friedman says he did not say this]

Elliotte Friedman reported Monday that the Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins are involved in a three-team race for Leafs’ winger Joffrey Lupul.

As widely reported yesterday, Lupul has a list of 14 teams that the Leafs can trade him to without his consent.

The Fourth Period reported that the Leafs are believed interested in Lars Eller, Michael Bournival and Christian Thomas (son of former Leaf Steve Thomas) from the Habs.

Darren Dreger reports that while there’s some interest in Leafs’ Joffrey Lupul, though the Leafs have no offers that they want to pull the trigger on as of yet. Dreger says things could heat up closer to next Monday’s deadline.

Lupul has a modified no-trade clause where he has to supply a list of 14 teams he would accept a trade to. He’s signed for three seasons beyond 2014-15 at a cap-hit of $5.25 million.

The Fourth Period reports that Lupul has drawn the interest of the Canadiens, Capitals and Panthers.

Leafs Interested in Richards, O’Reilly, and Eberle

According to discussion by Elliotte Friedman and The Fourth Period, the Toronto Maple Leafs are actively pursuing a trade involving Mike Richards. Dion Phaneuf seems like the most probable candidate to be traded, but the Leafs are also entertaining offers on Nazem Kadri, James Reimer, Jake Gardiner, Cody Franson, and Joffrey Lupul.

The team is also interested in obtaining Jordan Eberle and Ryan O’Reilly, and any trade involving those players will likely contain Phaneuf. However, it is unknown if he is willing to wave his limited no-trade clause.

If the Leafs continue to struggle, which is likely, a trade will occur soon.
