Trade Talks Picking Up (Niittymaki, Ryan, Getzlaf?!?)

On The NHL Network tonight, Darren Dreger said that trade talks had picked up and there's a belief we could see a flurry of activity shortly after the lifting of the trade freeze.

-Philadelphia is content to stand pat for now, but are expected to fill the void left by Chris Pronger before the deadline.

-San Jose is trying hard to shop Antero Niitymaki. Niittymaki is healthy for the first time this season and currently on a conditioning stint in the AHL. San Jose might also look to move a defenceman when they are healthy.

-Anaheim's continued struggles has to lead to talks that Bobby Ryan might soon be back on the table/might already be back on the table. Dreger also said that it's unlikely, but there are also some talks that the Ducks might be looking to make an ever bigger move which would be the dealing of Ryan Getzlaf.
