The NHL trade deadline is Wednesday, April 3, which means we’re officially less than one month away. It could be an odd trade deadline given the fact that we’re dealing with a shortened season. A lot of teams are still trying to figure out whether they are going to become competitive or whether it’s best to give up the short-term goals and focus on the future.
On that note, here’s a look at two teams — one from each conference — that are likely to be sellers come trade deadline time.
The Calgary Flames will be the talk of the town come deadline day as all eyes will be watching to see if they move Jarome Iginla. Rumors are already swirling about the Flames franchise player and while the fans would be devastated to lose him, the grim reality is that this team is nowhere near being able to compete — even with him.
Iginla is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year and he should be part of a fire sale that possibly includes Miikka Kiprusoff and Jay Bouwmeester. While the latter...

THAT'S A NEW ONE
During the second intermission of Wednesday night's Calgary Flames game at the Scotiabank Saddledome against the San Jose Sharks, a fan stripped down to his briefs and jumped over the glass onto the ice. The fan made it all the way to center ice before being apprehended by security. We've seen fans run onto the field at sporting events many times, but it's extremely...
Maybe the Miikka Kiprusoff trade rumors will simmer down now that he returned from his knee injury to throttle the San Jose Sharks 4-1 after a month-long layoff.Or perhaps that stellar performance will only intensify interest in the Calgary Flames netminder, who has one year left on his current deal.Kiprusoff feels ready to shoulder a big load as his team prepares for the stretch...

It was the OHL in action on Thursday evening as 3 New York Islander and 1 New York Islander prospects saw action with all of them winding up with wins. The difference in tonight's games was the plays made by the secondary or "role" players
The Niagara IceDogs were heading south for most of the last month but after tonight's 4-3 shootout...
Miikka Kiprusoff made 32 saves in his return from a knee injury to lead the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night.
Blake Comeau scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period. Jarome Iginla, Roman Cervenka and Curtis Glencross (into an empty net) also scored for Calgary, which improved to 4-1-1 in its last six games.
Joe Thornton had...
Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today they have reassigned goaltender Danny Taylor to the Abbotsford Heat and activated Miikka Kiprusoff from injured reserve. Kiprusoff returns to the Flames line-up after recovering from a grade 2 MCL sprain suffered on February 5th against the Detroit Red Wings.
Streaking in the NHL takes some planning.

The Calgary Flames will play host to the San Jose Sharks tonight and although both teams are fresh off a win over the Vancouver Canucks, San Jose ran over the Flames 4-1 and went on a 7 game winning streak the last time they met. No doubt the Sharks will be looking to ignite another string of wins tonight in Calgary.
After their streak, however...

The Calgary Flames took on the San Jose Sharks at home last night and came through with a big win putting them at a .500 game pace. Kipursoff came back better than before allowing only 1 goal on 33 shots. In the 3rd the Flames were outshot 17-6 and Kipursoff stopped each and every one of them. Having Kipursoff behind the team seemed to elevate...
The Isles have always played the Caps close. (Clydeorama)
The Washington Capitals are in Uniondale, New York, this afternoon to take on the Islanders as they play the first of two back-to-back games on the weekend. New York, who lost their last game against the Rangers on Thursday, are 10-11-3 and 4-4-2 over their last ten. Their record gives them 23 standings points and...
On Wednesday night one of the rarities occurred in hockey, when a fan climbed over the boards and glass to get onto the ice to go running around in his boxers. How he managed to get over the boards in the corner where he was coming out from is beyond me, but he did it somehow. At least this time it was between periods when the Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks were playing....
With the April 3 trade deadline approaching, it’s time to brainstorm some names that could help the Bruins during the last month of the season and into the playoffs.
NESN’s Gord Kluzak thinks the Bruins could target Jarome Iginla of the Flames or Daniel Alfredsson of the Senators before the trade deadline. Kluzak thinks either player could help the Bruins on the power play...
After splitting the first two contests at Madison Square Garden, the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders renewed their love affair at the Nassau Coliseum for the first time this season. With only two points separating these interstate rivals, the Islanders on the outside looking in for the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot, points [...]
Darren Dreger of TSN was on the NHL Network today and discussed the trade climate right now, which is slow this week but could pick up at the GM meeting in Toronto on March 20th.
Dreger also mentioned it is highly unlikely both Getzlaf and Perry will be signed by the Ducks with Getzlaf the one expected to sign with Anaheim.
Next up was Jarome Iginla, with Dreger saying the Penguins...
