Stars upgrade... and more

The Dallas Stars trade for one of the most under-rated players in the NHL Ladislav Nagy. Nagy heads to the Stars for winger Mattias Mathias Tjarnqvist and a first round selection in 2007. Phoenix makes this deal to get younger and this helps them. After several reports the Coyotes wanted to resign Nagy, apperntly they were going to fall short and lose him end of the year. Same situation with the Bruins and Brad Stuart, if your going to lose a guy get something for him. Nagy brings great speed and a proven scorer in the NHL. He will provide some depth on the Stars up front. In 55 games this year he has 8 goals and 33 assists. He led his team in points and assists. Nagy who has been with the Coyotes since being dealt from St. Louis for Keith Tkachuk, who is also rumored to be on the trading block. Nagy was ranked 3rd on availible players to be dealt. Tkachuk is 5th with New York Rangers, Carolina, Detriot, and Dallas who are intrested. In 4th is Nagy's former teammate Shane Doan who could be the last big name to be dealt out Phoenix. Remeber Mike Comrie was already dealt to Ottawa this year. Doan could be moved to Detriot, Vancouver, Montreal, or Carolina.

If you are wondering who the number one player it is Peter Forsberg, according to TFP. Speaking of Forsberg he had a meeting with the owner of the Flyers, Ed Snider on Sunday on his future. Here's a list of possible places Forsberg could end up Detroit, Colorado, Montreal, Vancouver, Anaheim, San Jose, Carolina and Nashville.

Meanwhile Sami Kapanen signed an extension with Philly for two years. Kapane has 7 goals and 14 points for the Flyers in 51 games this season.

Bluejackets may deal soon. Bryan Berard, Anson Carter, and Freddie Modin could all be dealt. Forward Manny Malhotra and defenseman Adam Foote, could also be dealt but are long shots. Carolina and Vancouver are the front runners for former Bruin Anson Carter. Tampa Bay and Atlanta would love to add Berard for his offensive ability and to run their PP's at the points.

Washington Capitals lose their starting goalie Olaf Kolzig for at least 3 weeks. Kolzig hurt his knee in practice. This could eliminate them from any playoff hopes unless back up Brent Johnson plays the way he did a couple of years ago with the St. Louis Blues. Look for the Capitals to make a trade for a back-up until Kolzig returns.
Washington also extended tough guy Donald Brashear to a 1 year $1.1 million contract.

Bill Guerin could be heading to Ottawa, Nashville, San Jose, or Carolina. Gary Roberts could also head to Ottawa. Roberts could also head back to Toronto along with Todd Burtuzzi.

The Sabers want to pick up another defensmen, Aaron Miller could be their guy, but the Oilers are also after him. Both teams want Eric Brewer too.

Ottawa's Ray Emery is suspened 3 games for a vicious slash.

Who's the next Bruin to be dealt? I think both Glenn Murray and Marco Sturm will be dealt before the deadline. I think the Sturm deal will be done first, just because Murray's contract is so big that it's harder for them to move him, unless it's a multi-player deal. Which could happen, they both could be in the same deal or possibly a three way deal. Sturm's two goals against the Islanders showed that he is now healthy and that might have just punched his ticket out of Boston. Ekland reported that Murray and Sturm could be in the same deal.
