12:18pm Hello everyone, I will be updated this blog up until 3:30pm with any updates regarding the Bruins, or the rest of the NHL as the 3:00pm trade deadline approaches.
So far there hasn’t been any major news today except maybe the Miikka Kiprusoff debacle. TSN’s Darren Dreger reported earlier that the Flames veteran netminder will remain in Calgary and not waive his no trade clause to go to the Toronto Maple Leafs. It is also likely “Kipper” will retire at the end of the season so both he and the Flames organization can move on.
Per Dreger – “lots of discussion this morning, however sources indicate Kiprusoff will stay in Calgary and retire at the end of the season.”
