*It's been a season to forget so far for Sharks left wing Ryane Clowe. He is without a goal in 28 games during the 2012-13 campaign, and San Jose has been middling at best. Despite their playoff position, it wouldn't be shocking if Clowe preferred something to shake things up. Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area says a trade is coming soon,and the three most popular suitors would be the Canadiens, Bruins and Rangers. Clowe's agent has been approached about waiving his no-trade clause, according to Kurz. Sharks GM Doug Wilson "would like a first-round pick and another young asset" for Clowe.
*The Islanders sit tied for eighth, and have been working on an extension for Mark Streit, but rumor has it there may be interest in his services elsewhere. Tim Sassone of The Daily Herald says the Chicago Blackhawks are interest in both Streit and Frans Nielsen, the two-way center for the Islanders. Sassone says the acquisition of Streit would give the Blackhawks a two-way defenseman who would improve on the work of Johnny Oduya, who was acquired at the trade deadline last season from Winnipeg. The Isles may have eyes for Chicago prospects Jeremy Morin and Dylan Olsen.
*John Vogl of The Buffalo News says that while Darcy Regier says he is open to any and all trade offers, Ryan Miller isn't taking it to mean that a total roster overhaul is coming. Miller also denied a recent report that said he gave the Sabres' management a list of teams he would accept a trade to.
*There was, no shocker, a lot of material on the Hockey Night in Canada panel last night. Ron MacLean reported that Matt Cullen of the Minnesota Wild might be included in a possible trade, and that Brian Campbell and Tomas Fleischmann might be exiting a last place Florida team. Elliotte Friedman said that suitors for Jay Bouwmeester are Detroit and Los Angeles, while Kevin Weekes threw out the Tampa Bay Lightning. Friedman also said that the Leafs will not give up a first round pick for Mikka Kiprusoff.
Glenn Healy suggested that the Canucks would want a goaltender back for Roberto Luongo, while Friedman put out a second-line center as a possible additional return. Raffi Torres may be available for the Canucks to reacquire, according to Friedman, while Derek Morris of the Coyotes is also on the block. Healy also said that any potential Ryan Miller deal would likely happen in the summertime.
