The Carolina Hurricanes and Edmonton Oilers have made a trade.
Ales Hemsky and Colten Teubert
Tim Gleason, Drayson Bowman, and a 1st round pick in 2012
We're very happy to bring in a guy like Ales Hemsky into the line up. We believe with his superior playmaking abilities fit perfectly with Staal and Skinner's game. We know what kind of game he can bring after watching him play against the Hurricanes in the 2006 Stanley Cup Final. We're also very happy to add Colten Teubert, who we believe projects to be a Tim Gleason type player.
We wish Tim and Drayson all the best in Edmonton and the rest of their careers. Welcome to the Hurricanes Ales and Colten.
The LA Kings are pleased to announce a trade with Calgary which sends Dustin Penner to the Flames in return for Roman Horak, Ryan Howse and a 2nd round pick in 2012.
We would like to thanks Dustin for his short stint as a King but we feel he didn't quite fit into the identity of the team. We LOVE the potential of a Howse/Horak combination that has played together for 2 seasons already and believe Horak can be a solid 3rd line center as soon as next season (yes I realize he is in the NHL right now). We believe Howse will take a couple of year but we think his offense will translate well and he will provide scoring depth that this team needs.
The Florida Panthers have traded Jason Garrison and Quinton Howden to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Antoine Vermette.
The Blue Jackets are very happy to add a solid young puck mover in Garrison as well as a top prospect in Howden. Garrison improves what has been a very disappointing third pairing thus far. We are also very excited about Howden's potential and feel he'll be an asset to the team for years to come.
Because of this acquisition, the Blue Jackets have assigned David Savard to Springfield of the AHL.
The Carolina Hurricanes and St. Louis Blues have made a trade.
Tuomo Ruutu, Bryan Allen, SJS 2nd round pick in 2012
David Backes and Roman Polak
We are absolutely thrilled to add David Backes and Roman Polak to the Carolina Hurricanes. Backes provides us with strong leadership and power forward abilities on the ice. He can play center and RW, which should help when Dalpe breaks into the league next season. He'll fit in perfectly behind Eric Staal in our line up. We're also very happy to add Roman Polak, who brings a lot of toughness to our back-end.
We wish Tuomo and Bryan the best of luck in St. Louis and the rest of their careers.
The Hurricanes are still looking to shore up the defense. Could use one more right handed defenseman in order to send Polak to the bottom pair and Faulk to the AHL. Zach Boychuk and other prospects as well as some picks are available.

After much discussion, the Florida Panthers and Washington Capitals have agreed to a trade.
2nd round draft pick 2011 (florida)
The Washington Capitals would like to welcome Antoine Vermette and Mark Eaton to the organization. Vermette provides additional depth up front while Mark Eaton shores up a young but potent defense. We would also like to wish Michal Neuvirth the best of luck with his new organization.
