We already have a better Gleason in Matt Greene.

As a fan of both teams, I'd like to see LA get in on Wallin.

Whitney's a veteran with a Cup and if he's traded it would remind me a lot of the Guerin to Pittsburgh trade last year. Top 6 winger that is still good offensively and is a leader. He'd be a good addition to a young team looking to make a strong playoff push like the Sabres, or really any team looking to make a playoff push for that matter.
As I have said, all three of these guys can help multiple teams. Carolina will look for up a coming prospects and maybe a few roster players while building around Staal and Ward. They'll be back sooner then you think.

Corvo will be traded too but right now he has injury.

I think JR will work for Corvo/Eaves type deal. He will try to get signed top 4 defenseman imo (Sekera is good option, Daley is another great option).

Gleason going nowhere and yes, he's better player than Matt Greene.

Most Pens fans have been impressed with Mckee, no way is he done like Aaron Ward.

It makes too much sense, though. Which is why it won't happen. Darcy Regier is a master of the slight of hand, and this is overly obvious. Another Zubrus-type deal is probably in the works.

There will be a huge bidding war for Whitney. One I think it best to stay out of.
or maybe Whitney will say 'I'll only waive my NTC to go to team X, as I feel they have the best shot at the cup.' Hossa took less as a UFA to go to Detroit 2 yrs ago for that very reason. Really it's up to Whitney, do you think he'd be more willing to go to a bubble team like LA or to the defending champs?

You are not a true fan of both teams if you think Matt Greene is comparable to Tim Gleason

i think whitney will wave it, he doesnt have much value though, he's coming to the end of his career, he could still put up points if he is playing with the right person, he could help a team in contention

Not trying to nit pick..but helping a team in contention is exactly what his value is (and the major point of this thread)..so not sure why you are saying he doesn't have much value.

Is he coming to the end of his career? Yep.
Is he still productive? Yep.
Can he only put up points with the right player? Nope..he has shown over the past 3 years he can put up points with just about anyone...and on some really offensively challenged teams.
Can he help a team in contention? Yep..but depends on their needs.

Maybe "value" to you means something different?

By slight of hand - do you mean doing nothing? I had the impression that Darcy wants to "win" every trade - so he rarely gets a deal done. I'm just saying that going back to holding onto 3 goalies (Miller, Noronen, Biron) for way too long, and recent deadline deals have been the sale of Campbell a couple of years ago, and getting Dominic Moore last year.

No offense - but what does Whitney's age or stage of career have to do with his value as a rental? Do you think that he's been playing great until he's 37.5 years old, but he's going to hit the wall in a month and have his game fall way off?

Whoever is getting Whitney isn't worried about his game 6 months from now. They'll be looking for an upgrade RIGHT NOW, and Whitney's a quality player that would be useful for most play-off contenders.

Also- while Whitney's much more productive point wise that a guy like Guerin (or Tkachuk/Torres as was mentioned above), his plays a very different game.

The slight of hand refers to the fact that every single trade deadline, eight million rumors are thrown around about what Darcy Regier and the Sabres are going to do, what players and teams they're targeting, etc.

And they're 99.9999% of the time completely wrong.

So, just like any other team with a large fanbase that likes to make things up as message board fodder?

'Rumors' as you see them on HF boards don't usually have a real source.

Lot's of options for the Canes to turn-over their roster. I'm sure everyone not named Staal, Cam, or Joni is available. (outside of prospects for obvious reasons)

But they have a lot of chips that GMs will covet for different reasons. Veteran scoring winger, all-around vet C, and some depth/grit on D is exactly the type of intangibles needed this time of year.

Whitney makes a lot of sense for Calgary and Cullen in Vancouver, but I'm sure there will be a plethora of teams interested.

I'm referring to the Hot Stove, individual stuff from Dreger and McKenzie and Lebrun, Garrioch, etc.

I thought that was rather obvious.

What would it take to get Whitney AND Cullen to the Flames? Obviously we don't have a first round pick, or a second for that matter. Only prospects that I think are untouchable are Backlund and Irving. Probably willing to move a somewhat decent roster player. Sarich and Boyd are two roster players probably available.

Gleason is not available. Ruutu is not available. So is our core player - Staal, Cam and Sutter.

Interesting info - some people thinks Joni Pitkanen will be traded because:
