Which NHL players are most likely to be traded?
Mon, March 2, 2009

By BRUCE GARRIOCH, SUN MEDIA

Jay Bouwmeester's actions don't just speak louder than words. They speak volumes.

The big 24-year-old blueliner could have inked a long-term deal with the Panthers in the summer. Instead, Florida's first-round pick (No. 3 overall) in 2002 signed on for just one season at $4.875 million US.

The sense is Bouwmeester won't be back next season.

Slated to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, Bouwmeester will likely be one of the most sought-after players leading up to the March 4 trade deadline.

Which players do you see being traded before the deadline? Have your say in our forum.

Bouwmeester has plenty of suitors

Colleen, the league is run by an american with one agend, to build up the american teams and players. After all the States has 300 million potential veiwers, Canada has 30 million. Can you imagine the poor Americans knowing that they are not the best at something and spend as they do, they will never understand the game is about skill and heart, No matter how much money the americans throw spend to find the solution they will not advance, try as Bettman will.

To Mr Sutter and Mr Keenan, I do not know how you guys maintain your composure. What I have wittnessed over the years in Cowtown is disgusting as far as how the flames are constantly hammered by bad calls by refs. I look around my office and look at all my memorabilia worth thousands of dollars admitting I am definitely a huge fan of Calgary. Somebody has to admit that there is an agenda to screw Canadian teams from progressing in the playoffs. I just finished watching the first period of the game in Detroit and am numb by what I see. Not that it matters in the scope of things but I am finally going to turn my back on this league due to this ridiculous crap. What a sad thing that true hockey fans are seeing. I think we can attribute this to Mr Bettmans Americanization of our Game. I dont think we will see a Canadian team win the cup in a long time. Somebody tell me I am not the only one seeing this.

And, James, you think that using most of what available cap space they have on Bouwmeester will, along with Schenn, turn them into a winner with that collection of forwards and a mediocre goalie?

And where do you figure they'll get the # 2 pick? Not the way the season's going, unless they suddenly go entirely into the tank.

Burke is probably looking at Cammalleri - which will turn out something like Blake did if past history is any lesson.

Brian Burke is sitting pretty with lots of cap space to sign Jay Boumeester an draft the swedish stud at #2 in June.

The defense is set for 10 years.

WOOT!

FLAMES GET STRONGER AT THE DEAD LINE!

I have to laugh at TSN's all-day coverage of Trade Deadline Day. A bunch of blow-hards sitting around and speculating about things that they know nothing about. It's a classic case of atttempting to create excitement where none exists. I'm curious, like every other hockey fan, but I'll look at and review the results when they're in to see how my team is affected.

I'm at work now, but I can just imagine the talking heads at TSN debating nothing as they hope and pray for some trade news.

Vermette got traded because he doesn';t score goals. I don't know if Ottawa gave him time to really get trained to do that. He has wicked speed on the ice, but never really capitalizes on that. That I think is his undoing. I hope Leclaire will fair better. Maybe trading Neil to the leafs would be a good thing. Then the leafs can shut the hell up in ottawa for booing Alfredsson..LOL

Other than the Leafs, none of the Canadian teams are likely to make any significant moves today.

The Sens aren't giving anyone way, the Habs already made their big move, Calgary looks solid as it is, and the other aren't in a position to acquire or deal either.
Russ, 2009-03-04 09:17:27

The names you mention sound good, RM. The only problem is, each would impact the cap more than the Habs could make room for - so who do they dump? And how?
Gary O., 2009-03-03 13:38:35

Sens have talent that don't gel anymore...so they should trade for a few high draft picks

Leafs well.. no big deal there cause nothing will be of value for years..or if ever!

Canadiens are in a great position and a few additions ; like a D and a another big forward would be awesome and the best chance for a canadian team to go deep... Bouwmeester, Jordan Staal or even Vinny would make this team top contenders.hey what the hell might even take Kaberle if possible

Go Habs !
