Welcome to the trade deadline folks!
9:17
Who wants to talk about potential deals.
I'll let some questions come in for a few minutes, but we'll get started pretty quickly.
9:18
How did you guys like the midnight madness?
Jake
9:20
How many trades do you expect today? Do you see Duchene moved?
Gavin Lee
9:21
Even though a lot of work has been done this week, there will still likely be more than a dozen deals. There are still a lot of rentals out there, and teams that still have work to do.
Duchene the big question mark isn't he.
I've maintained for a while that I don't think he'll be traded until the summer.
Donnie
9:21
Will the real Garth Snow please stand up and make a deal we can be proud of?
Gavin Lee
9:22
Well that depends on what you'd be proud of.
Is Radim Vrbata worthy of pride?
Eric C.
9:22
Do you see the Jackets making any moves today? Duchene?
Gavin Lee
9:23
Jackets will likely make a move to help them up front. This is a big season for the franchise as a whole, even with a tough matchup coming in the first round.
Nate

brandon montour and a 2nd for kane and conditional 5th. 4th if anaheim makes conf finals. Sabres retain 25%... thoughts
Gavin Lee
9:24
It sure sounds like an NHL deal with the retained salary and conditions, but I doubt very much they deal Montour.
They already got Eaves, and any other move will be similar.
9:25
Hey look the Flyers are going to re-sign Neuvirth.
That gives them the expansion protection they need.
Kings fan
9:25
Any chance Kings can offload Brown and Gaborik today?
Gavin Lee
9:26
There is always a chance, and they're trying. But I doubt anyone takes it unless they include a considerable asset.
Jerry
9:26
Has Dman become more of a priority than a forward for the Pens?
Gavin Lee
9:26
They definitely could use another depth piece. They brought up Pouliot today if you didn't see.
Donnie
9:26
Imo isles needed to make a few moves and I thought they would've done something by now.
Gavin Lee
9:27
That's the thing. It's not just one move for the Isles, and that's tough to do under a time limit.
Do you really want them to pay a good prospect and pick for Jannik Hansen though (sorry Sharks fans).
Fuzzy
9:27
Not bad. What will the return for vanek be?
Gavin Lee
9:28
Another mid-round pick. Look at LA.
Kris Daly
9:28
Any chance Devils make any major moves today? The cap space is there. Or we looking at selling PA, Quincey etc for draft picks?
Gavin Lee
9:29
I'm not totally sold they will just get picks.
Like Vancouver, I bet they're more interested in prospects.
lukaku
9:29
Hanzal and shatty prices are huge. It is only for 20 to 30 games. Is it really worth mortaging your future for that esp. If you are the like caps?
Gavin Lee
9:30
Remember that a first round pick for Washington is likely 27-31. That's not the worst thing to give up if you believe your team has a real shot at the cup.
9:31
Mortgaging the future is how every sport works if you want to really compete for the championship.
Anthony
9:31
What moves do you expect the Flyers to make?
Gavin Lee
9:31
Will re-sign Neuvirth now, expansion goaltender was a need.
9:32
I would have said dealing MDZ and Streit, but it sure sounds quiet in Philly right now.
scott
9:32
do you see the Blackhawks doing anything today?
Gavin Lee
9:32
I think the Hawks were likely in on Sharp, but he's probably not getting dealt now.
Tim
9:33
With the Wings moving 3 guys already... Vanek has to go today, right?
Gavin Lee
9:33
Yep. He'll bring in another pick. Detroit is hoarding.
