Rumours: 2/18
Will the Islanders buy or sell on deadline day?-posted 2/18, 6:30 pm et
The New York Islanders currently sit six points back of a playoff spot, and the big decision will have to be made by Isles management whether or not they should buy, or sell on deadline day. If the New York Islanders choose to sell on deadline day, which according to a New York source looks currently like the route that will be taken, names available will include Mark Parrish, Miroslav Satan, Oleg Kvasha, Alexei Zhitnik, Mike York, and Jason Blake.

Senators after goaltending?
With the news that number one goaltender Dominek Hasek has aggravated a muscle in his groin area that has put him out of the Winter Olympics, the Ottawa Senators may be seeking goaltending depth. It may be that Hasek will miss quite a few games with the injury, and the Senators would then be forced to acquire a goaltender to either step in to the number one position or back-up Ray Emery. It is not yet known whether or not Emery can be relied on, as he has had some iffy performances as of late. Available goaltenders include Phoenix’s Curtis Joseph, Anaheim’s J-S Giguere, San Jose’s Vesa Toskala, Minnesota’s Dwayne Roloson, and Buffalo’s Martin Biron. There are suggestions from an Ottawa source that GM John Muckler might have particular interest in Toskala.

Philadelphia Interested in Reechi?

The Philadelphia Flyers have been playing below expectations lately, and according to a Philadelphia source, it is looking likely they will add offense by deadline day. There is interest in Islanders forward Mark Parrish, and now Pittsburgh's Mark Reechi. It can be confirmed that Pittsburgh is shopping Reechi, and that Bobby Clarke will make an attempt at him. your best source for NHL trade rumours.

Lot of good names could be coming out of new york.

Vancouver should perhaps make a push at zhitnik?

obviously as a fan of the team i'd like to see buying rather than selling, which may still be a possibility.

Parrish and Reechi would be great playoff additions. Clarkey will get a feww things done by deadline day . I think we can make a pretty solid run at it this year.
