TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie, Pierre LeBrun and Darren Dreger gathered for the latest installment of Insider Trading and the topics discussed were if the Oilers would trade Nail Yakupov, if the Panthers are ready to blow things up in Florida and PK Subbans contract talks in Montreal. Hayden Hurst Womens Jersey . Is there any chance Nail Yakupov ends up being traded out of Edmonton? Dreger: Not this year. The Oilers have no intentions of trading him. What they need from him, given the fact that hes played 65 NHL games, is to figure it out. He needs to start being a better defensive player, he needs to mature a little bit, work on the issues in his game and be ready for the time when Ales Hemsky is traded by the Oilers so he can take a more predominant role. As for the Igor Larionov story, Craig MacTavish spoke to him and there are no issues there. Yakupov hasnt demanded a trade yet but someone in Dallas has. McKenzie: If youve been hearing a lot of Vernon Fiddler trade rumours its because two weeks ago he went to the Dallas Stars and said he wants more ice time and wants a bigger role, and if he cant get it with Dallas than let it be somewhere else. Hes on an expiring contract at $1.8 million and an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year. There is interest in him from other teams but the Stars are wining and things are going well, so theyre not going to give him away. Keep an eye on this one. Dreger: The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of those teams that have had discussions with Dallas about Fiddler. Torontos a little bit concerned about his age and the money, but the Leafs are looking for something. Theyve also had discussions on potentially trading John-Michael Liles to the Carolina Hurricanes but nothing imminent there. Is Panthers general manager Dale Tallon ready to blow things up in Florida? McKenzie: Lets play hockey jeopardy. Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau, Nick Bjugstad, Erik Gudbranson, Marcel Goc. Who are the five players on the Florida Panthers who cannot be had in a trade right now? Anybody else on the Panthers are available in trade. The younger guys there that are available - Shawn Matthias or Dmitry Kulikov - theyre the guys now that most teams are kicking tires on. The veterans that are making the bigger money; not so much. How about the goaltending situation in Nashville? LeBrun: The Predators have given up a ton of goals since Pekka Rinne went down; not really a big surprise. Carter Hutton, kind of an unknown commodity, has not answered the bell so the Predators and the Anaheim Ducks, Im told, have had discussions regarding Jonas Hiller. But what the Predators have told the Ducks is that we need to know about Rinnes health before we decide whether or not we have to make a goalie trade. If they get good news, maybe they could hold off and survive but if it looks like its going to be longer than they thought, than maybe theyll have to make a trade, and Hiller - as weve been saying for a month - is very much available from Anaheim. Some quick one-timers... Tuesdays general managers meeting in Toronto? Dreger: The National Hockey League general managers talked about a lot of things at Tuesdays annual general managers meeting. One of the things that was interesting is the shot blockers. We know that the Calgary Flames have made them mandatory, but it was clarified to the GMs that you cannot make additional equipment mandatory, you can only strongly encourage. PK Subban talks in Montreal? LeBrun: Agent Don Meehan was in Montreal for very preliminary discussions where the parameters were set. Its going to be a big negotiation, obviously, for Subban who is a restricted free agent at the end of the year and is going to make a lot of money. That conversation has begun. Stamkos and Sochi? McKenzie: Hockey Canada is not ruling him out at this point. The surgery went well. Tampa media is reporting that a metal rod was inserted the length of the tibia and a metal rod is no worse than plates or screws, so right now the unofficial timeline seems to be in and around three months. It could be more than that and it could be less, but with Team Canada not expected to name the roster until December 28, they will wait and see how much more information theyve got a month to six weeks from now to make a determination. Team Canada will meet in Toronto over the next day and will be whittling down the hardcore of what the nucleus is. LeBrun: And whittling it down to about half, Id say. Team Canada had a long list heading into this season and I think they want to work it down to a manageable number that they can focus on over the next month before D-Day is ready for Team Canada. A young hot prospect not named Connor McDavid? McKenzie: Everybody knows that the 2015 NHL draft is the so-called Connor McDavid draft and rightfully so. But keep an eye on Jack Eichel; a young American - a late 1996 birth date - who just tore up the Four Nations Cup in Finland. He had four goals and seven points in only three games for the Americans. Hes slated to go to Boston University at some point. His CHL rights were initially owned by the Halifax Mooseheads but they dropped him when he committed to BU, and now the Saint John Sea Dogs hold his CHL rights. Hes a big centre who could put points on the board. Jonathan Ogden Womens Jersey . "Canada," Bolland said with a smile. "Is that a question?" One day earlier, though, fellow Toronto Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri wasnt so sure his home and native land could pull off the win against the United States in the semi-finals of the Olympic hockey tournament. Mark Andrews Jersey . The 24-year-old right winger has one assist in nine games this season with the Sabres. In his career, he has three goals and six assists in 43 NHL games. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Hayden-Hurst-Jersey/ . -- Derek Jeter spoke for 25 minutes, 44 seconds and answered 26 questions about his decision to retire at the end of this season.The NHLs Mar. 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value.

Help In Net Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal says the St. Louis Blues, one of the best teams in the NHL, could use some help between the pipes. He says they wont give up highly touted prospect Dmitrij Jaskin, but former Oiler Magnus Paajarrvi could be made available as well as goaltender Jaroslav Halak. Marquise Brown Ravens Jersey. Matheson also says the Chicago Blackhawks are looking for a number two centre to play with Patrick Kane. Decisions, Decisions Larry Brooks of the New York Post says the New York Rangers have a decision to make when it comes to defenceman Dan Girardi. The 29-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent at years end. If the Rangers decide not to extend his contract, Brooks believes the Anaheim Ducks or Boston Bruins would be a good fit in exchange for a package of young defenceman. ' ' '
