Kings acquire defenceman Dion Phaneuf in trade with Senators

The deal gives the playoff-contending Kings more depth on the blue line as they assume the final three-plus years of Phaneuf's contract, though the Senators are retaining 25 percent of his salary and $7 million salary-cap hit.

"It's a weird night".

Bob McKenzie is reporting the Bolts have interest as well in Ryan McDonagh. looking into it, but Bob is NEVER wrong about these sort of things.What I have been told so far is that the Bolts have looked hard into a long term plan with Erik Karlsson. "As a player, those [runs] are what you play for. They are tremendous individuals that deserve the best".

"They've got a really good group of guys here", Phaneuf said of his now-former Sens teammates.

Paul Ryan: 'Clearly we should all be condemning domestic violence'
But clearly, clearly we should - I mean, come one - clearly we should all be condemning domestic violence. Those words don't mean anything to me.

As most trades, it takes two teams to tango. For me, personally, it's a good situation but the business is the business.

The trade will end up saving the Senators almost $4 million, as Gaborik makes less money in base salary than Phaneuf through the duration of their contracts through 2021.

But only being on the hook for $5.25 million per year does salve the sting a bit for Blake, who unloaded his own anchor in Gaborik.

GM Pierre Dorion just got a three-year contract extension, so he has the green light to drop the plunger on this team and start over. Mike Hoffman, Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Zack Smith have all been prominently featured on TSN's Trade Bait board.

AROUND THE RINKS: Poor Brian Elliott.

Phaneuf's trade will likely have little impact on the overall trade market. Shore, 26, has a 4-11-15 line in his fourth National Hockey League season. Our Town's Patrick Maroon is drawing trade offers as the Edmonton Oilers fall ever closer to mathematical death in the Western Conference playoff race.

For a team that wants to shed salary, this is sure a curious move. The Kings are now playing the Carolina Hurricanes.

On the surface, the swap might seem like a head-scratcher, especially since Gaborik has missed more than one-third of his games over the past five seasons. The Predators appear likely to pick very late in the first round, so nobody would be shocked if GM David Poile spent that pick to rent Rick Nash from the Rangers. That contract's inclusion made it easier for the Kings to absorb Phaneuf's new, lower cap hit - even with Drew Doughty set to soon become a free agent on the blueline. The Blackhawks ran their losing streak to seven games with a no-show at Vegas.

India would however not be able to see the solar eclipse that would take place tomorrow and also the one on August 11, 2018. But SDO will be seeing a lot more eclipses over the next few weeks, because the probe has now entered "eclipse season".

In bringing in Phaneuf and Thompson, Los Angeles is clearly trying to claw their way into the post-season. Rather than make a qualifying offer to goaltender Petr Mrazek - at a price exceeding $4.5 million for next season - the Red Wings may try to move him.
