*-> P.A Parenteau's finger injury is considered minor as reports have come out of team practice this morning. He's at practice so it appears to be a good sign. Still hearing only Ottawa and St. Louis as potential partners for New Jersey.
*-> The Jets appear to have had way more interest in Drew Stafford than expected today. Absolutely no interest in Ondrej Pavelec.
*-> The word out of Philly after Couturier was pulled from practice is that it was a trainer issue stemming from a fight injury nothing imminent on the trade front.
*-> Vrbata remains the prime target this morning so far. Most teams are circling back to Arizona and checking in if your a team looking for offensive help. He's by far the hottest thing this morning. Calgary has apparently entered the frey hard.
*-> Jesper Fast was announced to be out indefinite after a separated shoulder so the New York Rangers could be back in the market for some depth.
*-> Another minor trade from the Colorado Avalanche who just dealt defenseman Cody Corbett to the Washington Capitals for goaltender Joe Cannata.
