Around the NHL

- The Flyers claimed Dmitry Afanasenkov from Tampa Bay. He has 3 goals and 3 assists in 33 games.
- Ottawa claimed Petr Nedved and will take a cap hit of 1.14 million for the 2006-2007 season. He has only 7 points and is a -20 on the season. He was claimed due to the injuries to Mike Fisher and Jason Spezza, both of whom are out 4-6 weeks.
- Colton Orr was suspended 5 games for a crosscheck on Alexander Ovechkin. Donald Brashear was suspended 1 game for a sucker-punch on Aaron Ward.

- The Atlanta Thrashers are rumored to be interested in Brian Leetch. They are trying to make a move for the playoff run and are also said to be interested in Craig Conroy of the Kings, Pavel Datsyuk of the RedWings, and Phoenix's Mike Comrie or Ladislav Nagy. Although they only have about 3 million in cap space.
- The Devils are looking to move salary and Brad Lukowich appears to be on the block. Also Sergei Brylin and Scott Gomez's names have come up. Gomez will be a UFA at the end of the season and will probably attract a lot of interest on the free agent market.
- Brendan Morrison of the Canucks has also been on the block. It is believed Ottawa may have interest in him. The Canucks are also interested in Petr Cajanek and Bill Guerin of the Blues, as well as Comrie and Nagy.
- Tampa Bay has been trying to make a move all season to improve their defense. Ruslan Fedotenko and Vinny Prospal are two names that have been rumored. Tampa prefers to move Prospal over Fedotenko.
- The Phoenix Coyotes have said that Shane Doan is not on the market and that they are trying to resign him. However, everyone else on that team is on the market. Names such as Nagy, Comrie, Dave Scratchard, and Nick Boynton have popped up.
- Edmonton is in need of a defenseman and are rumored to be interested in Eric Brewer of the Blues.

Edmonton have interest in Mara too. If i were PC, i would call Edmonton and unload that contract from my payroll. Phoenix did the same mistake with Boynton and now they are stuck with him. PC shouldn't wait too long before acting on Mara...
