With Dion Phaneuf traded to Toronto, the next big name defensemen who is on the trade market is seemingly the Oilers' Sheldon Souray. He's been the subject of increased speculation about where he might end up, as he's reportedly listed the teams he'd waive his no-trade clause for.â†µ
Well, chances are some of that trade talk may quiet down some as TSN is reporting that Souray has a fractured hand, after getting into a fight with Jarome Iginla on Saturday night.
The full extent of the injury won't be known until tomorrow, but chances are he'll be out 4-6 weeks. It's almost exactly four weeks until the March 3 trade deadline. I'm fairly certain there will still be teams willing to pick up the big defenseman.
