A few signs indicate that trade deadline might be slow
In reality, Niklas Backstrom was only speaking for himself.
There are a number of reasons to expect fewer than the 25 deadline day trades made each of the past three seasons, but the biggest one is economic uncertainty. There seems to be fewer GMs willing to take financial gambles.
It doesn't look like they'll have to.
The Canucks also removed a potential Nike Jackets Red And White
"Lawrence is a great kid," said Vigneault. "He didn't play a lot with us but never said a word and worked really hard.
"Instead, we are proud of what he has accomplished, and we are excited for what he will."
Of course, it's impossible to predict exactly what Wednesday will bring. NHL general managers are a notoriously impulsive bunch and there should still be plenty of players available.
"Nycholat is a similar type player to Mark Giordano," said Flames GM Darryl Sutter. "We were prepared to give up a draft pick to acquire a depth defenceman."
Calgary's decision to pick up Nycholat could keep them out of the trade market.
"My goal was to stay here and I'm really happy it's possible," he told reporters in Vancouver on Tuesday morning. "It's sort of like a second dream come true after you got a shot to play in the NHL.

target from the trade market, signing forward Alex Burrows to a four year deal believed to be worth $8 million.
He's now signed through the 2012 13 season and is happy to be staying in Minnesota. Not that Backstrom expected to be sent anywhere else.
While it might seem like Risebrough had to pay a lot to keep Backstrom, the deal brings him in line with other top goalies in the NHL.
"He's really tried to help himself, and (GM) Glen (Sather) believes in second chances," said Tortorella. "I think he's done his homework here and we'll see where it goes."
"Now I have a chance to stay here for years to come."
And with that, another set of trade rumours went up in smoke. ET deadline. The 31 year old Backstrom is one of the league's top goaltenders and the Wild would not have wanted to lose him for nothing.
"Alex plays with intensity and determination at both ends of the rink," Canucks GM Mike Gillis said in a statement. "He's a fierce competitor and a versatile player. We look forward to further growth and development in his game."
A quiet Tuesday produced some indication that NHL general managers might not accomplish as much at this year's deadline as in years past. Gary Roberts (Tampa), Miroslav Satan (Pittsburgh) and Brendan Morrison (Anaheim) were among the players placed on waivers a clear sign they didn't have much trade value in the current market.
Even though new Rangers coach John Tortorella was critical of Avery while working as a commentator for TSN, he's ready to welcome the player into his lineup.
Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault said injuries restricted Nycholat's playing time in Vancouver.
Even without any trades the day before the deadline, a couple players found new homes. Controversial winger Sean Avery is heading back to Broadway after being claimed on re entry waivers by the New York Rangers and defenceman Lawrence Nycholat was plucked off the waiver wire by Calgary.
"What they have is a defenceman that can move the puck fairly well Nike Sb Hoodie Blue and competes hard. Size is an issue with him but he makes up for it with good competitiveness."
Burrows, who is in his fourth year with the team, is having a break out season with the Canucks, posting a career best 33 points (16 goals, 17 assists).
Instead of looking at trades, the GM was able to let out a sigh of relief.
Jay Bouwmeester remains unsigned in Florida, Bill Guerin sits in limbo on Long Island, Chris Neil and Filip Kuba are still without contract extensions in Ottawa and the Toronto Maple Leafs held forwards Dominic Moore and Nik Antropov out of Tuesday night's game in anticipation of potential deals.
But in discussing the US$24 million, four year contract extension he had just signed with the Minnesota Wild, Backstrom may have highlighted a developing theme on the eve of the NHL's trade deadline staying put.
The 29 year old has played 45 NHL games for three different teams over his career and will give the Flames a little depth down the stretch.
lower in the standings might have taken him first. The 28 year old was thrilled to get through and return to the franchise where he's had his most success.
While it was no surprise to see the Rangers put a claim in on Avery, it was unknown if any of the 18 teams Nike Black Pullover Hoodie
