Western source tells @Real_ESPNLeBrun price on Kesler is 'significantly high.' Second source: "Really high. And I guess I can't blame them."

@adater
Ryan O'Reilly trade freeze lifted tomorrow but he's going nowhere. Expect him to sign long-term deal this summer to stay an Av

EDM sounds really interested in Kesler, but doubt Kesler is interested in Edmonton.

Tough decisions ahead for Hurricanes. Teams saying Carolina is open to trading any one of its 3 goaltenders, including Cam Ward.

Cam Ward anyone?

LeBrun "I think in June if Edm is willing to move RNH or Eberle they might be able to get out there and fix some issues"

LeBrun "that's the test for MacTavish."

LeBrun "Oilers weren't willing to absorb any money in a Gagner to LA deal"


Highly recommend following @Hope_Smoke, transcribes all the radio interviews from most of the insiders even though there's a lot of Leaf talk than some may want.

More From LeBrun, his blog this time.

Oilers' selling list

Easy to figure out what names are available in Edmonton, most of them are pending unrestricted free agents, led by winger Ales Hemsky, who I hear is getting decent traction on the market.

It’s a guarantee he gets dealt before Wednesday. He’s a nice Plan B for those teams that strike out on Thomas Vanek or Matt Moulson. Hemsky can still play, I actually thought he looked good in Sochi for the Czech Republic.

Veteran winger Ryan Smyth is also a pending unrestricted free agent and could move. I think he’d be a terrific addition for one of the top contenders. He’d accept a fourth-line role on a Cup contender and his character goes without saying.

Nick Schultz is also an unrestricted free agent and will likely be moved as a depth defenseman addition to a contender.

The Kings and Oilers were in heavy talks on center Sam Gagner before the Olympic break, as we reported, but that deal fell apart because Edmonton balked at eating so much of the money on that contract, which still has two more seasons.

A bit of an aside, but is it just me or does it seem like most GM's sat by the pool with a drink during the Olympic break? I definitely thought we would have seen more action.
Brian Lawton says that market for Hemsky is set at a1st, but it's high and he will fetch a 2nd.

"The asking price for Hemsky has always been just more than what the market is willing to bear. This year, that price has been set at a first-round pick, but the most likely scenario will be a club giving up a second rounder at best for him."

Ducks' goalie chatterAnaheim GM Bob Murray came out strongly earlier this season in this very space and said he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and the Ducks may lose him for nothing.

You dont deal your No. 1 goalie when youre a Cup contender.

But a couple of sources around the league on Friday suggested Murray might be willing to move another goalie not named Hiller.

Now, I cant see prized youngsters John Gibson or Frederik Andersen going anywhere. So by process of elimination, Im guessing Viktor Fasth might be had for the right price. Hes signed for another season at $2.9 million, which is quite affordable for a guy whose shown capable of No. 1 duties and at the very least gives a team tremendous insurance in goal behind an established starter.

Keep an eye on that one.
Per Lebrun.

According to Jeremy Rutherford on twitter...

"Confirming reports that Ryan Miller is a late scratch tonight. It's believed that a deal is imminent and STL is the likely destination."

@jprutherford

No Steve Ott either after browsing the trade boards... Eeek!!!

Amid reports Ryan Miller/Steve Ott scratched tonite, much speculation BUF is close to trading one or both. STL? Or just asset protection?

To add to it...

I am told the BUF-STL trade is "much bigger" than Halak for Miller.

I know OTT wants Chris Stewart. I know 3-way STL-BUF-OTT deal was discussed this week. I don't know (yet) if it's done or if it will be done

I'm told there aren't likely to be any more BUF moves tonite. I'd say BUF will try to flip Jaro Halak to MIN and Chris Stewart to OTT.

Of course, wouldn't it be infinitely more interesting if BUF traded Stewart and Matt Moulson to OTT for a really big haul. Buckle up.

OMG!!!
