Kevin Kurtz at CSN California reports that the Sharks have approached Ryane Clowe’s agent about the possibility of waiving his no-trade clause, and a deal could happen as soon as today.
Kurtz, who says Boston, Montreal and the Rangers appear to be the most likely destinations for Clowe, adds that Sharks director of pro scouting John Ferguson, Jr. was in Philadelphia for the Bruins-Flyers game on yesterday afternoon, then he flew to Montreal for the Canadiens-Rangers game last night.
Clowe, who has yet to score this season, is in the final year of his contract that pays him $3.625 million.
...so the Rangers would rather spark their offense by trading for a guy with zero goals, instead of jump starting the entire team by sending Aaron Asham out on the ice to pummel Max Pacioretty last night. Makes sense.
...on the plus side, maybe Sather can get the Sharks to take Pyatt off his hands.
...with the Rangers already not having a first round pick this year due to ...

One name that has been bandied about is San Jose Sharks forward Ryane Clowe. The veteran winger hasn’t done much this season in terms of production — he’s yet to even score a goal — but there is still reportedly plenty of interest across the league.
from Louis-Andre Lariviere of TVA Sports (translated with a little editing by me),
Kent Hughes, Clowe's agent officer, told the TVA Sports as the Sharks try to exchange the attacker. Namely if the trade transaction can occur as early as Monday night, given the withdrawal of Clowe from tonight's game training, Hughes responded that it is a precaution. "A match...
The Philadelphia Flyers have been widely linked to pre-trade deadline talks with San Jose for power forward Ryane Clowe. While no trade appears imminent as of this writing and there are several other teams in pursuit of Clowe, no one around the Flyers has denied the team's interest in his acquisition.
Beyond a longstanding organizational penchant for adding size to the lineup...
The San Jose Sharks have dealt center Michal Handzus to the Chicago Blackhawks for a fourth-round draft pick.
The deal Monday is the second the Sharks have made in the past week. San Jose traded defenseman Douglas Murray to Pittsburgh last week for two draft picks.

TSN's Bob MacKenzie is reporting the Hawks have acquired veteran center Michal Handzus from the Sharks for a 4th round pick.
While some might be disappointed, I actually think this is a nice pickup for the stretch run. I've always been a fan of Zus. And even at his advanced age and glacial skating pace, he can be an effective penalty killing center...
