CBC.CA (via KUKLA’S KORNER): Elliotte Friedman reports
the reason for so little trade activity is prices are “outrageous’ in the trade market,
the standings remain tight (especially in the Western Conference), the salary cap is dropping next season, and many GMs don’t like what they see in the UFA market. The GMs are all chasing the same players…Kevin Weekes notes the Blues have four key RFAs in Chris Stewart, Patrik Berglund, Kevin Shattenkirk and Alex Pietrangelo, and it’ll be interesting to see what they do with them…Friedman spoke about a rumor linking the NY Rangers’ Marian Gaborik with the Vancouver Canucks, but he doesn’t believe those talks went anywhere. He suggested the Rangers might have to eat some of his salary to trade him, but doubts they’ll do that. He also believes they’d only move him if they could get back a return to replace the depth they’ve lost.
Interesting note about asking prices. Certainly we've seen it with Luongo.
