Here’s an update on the Dan Hamhuis to Philadelphia trade rumors: he hasn’t been traded yet, and there’s no deal in place. So essentially, we’re in the same boat as before.
Last night, a flurry of activity led many to believe
that a deal was close to being made that would send Ryan Parent to
Nashville in exchange for Hamhuis, with possibly some other players
This morning, there is still no word on that trade other
than a deal has not been made. Comcast Sportsnet reporter Tom Panaccio has this quote
from GM Paul Holmgren:
Rumblings out of
Canada that Hamuis to Flyers deal done but not announced. “Not true at
all,” says Flyers GM P. Holmgren this morning.
course, there’s no denial that the two teams have been in trade talks
but this won’t be an easy transaction to make. The Flyers have limited
cap space and a limited amount of players they can trade; nearly half
the team has no trade clauses.
Still trying to find out where the
“rumblings” are coming from that Panaccio mentions. I have to see
anyone say that the deal was done, pending an announcement. We’ll keep

The Tampa Bay Lightning and Arizona Coyotes have made a minor league trade.
The Bolts on Saturday acquired right winger Stefan Fournier from the Coyotes in exchange for right winger Jeremy Morin, who has played 82 career NHL games between the Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets.
Fournier stands six-foot-three-inches tall and 226 pounds. He has two goals and four points in 29 games with the Tuscon Roadrunners in the AHL.
Morin, who has spent the majority of his pro career in the Blackhawks organization, has been a productive minor league player over the years. He has nine goals and 21 points in 43 games this season with the Syracuse Crunch in the AHL.
The New York Islanders entered today with a three-game winning streak and holders of the final wild card spot in the Eastern Conference.
But yeah, it’s been a disastrous start for the Islanders on Saturday. The Blue Jackets scored three times in the first period, chasing Thomas Greiss from the New York net after he stopped 14 of 17 shots faced.
Jean-Francois Berube entered the game to begin the second period and promptly surrendered a goal to Josh Anderson, who scored his 12th of the season.
Oh, look at that: Another heated melee involving the Anaheim Ducks and L.A. Kings.
You’ll recall a first-period fight fest in a pivotal Pacific Division game between these teams almost one full year ago. On Saturday, in another meeting between these California rivals, the Ducks and Kings were once again at odds.
This latest conflict? Well, Corey Perry was involved. Again. (Last year, order had been restored during a brief scrum before Perry gave an extra shot to a Kings player, resulting in mayhem.)
Perry was called this time around for interference on Anze Kopitar. Kings players, as you might expect, suddenly rushed over before Nate Thompson and Brayden McNabb squared off in the main event.
