With Tim Connolly not on hand, the local media encircled Henrik Tallinder when he came off the ice after today's pregame skate. Here's some of what he had to say about possibly getting dealt in the next four hours:
"I have no idea about any rumors. Whatever happens, happens. I'm here for a game today. If not, there's a trade so we'll see. Anyone is expendable so I'm not surprised.
"I'm not nervous but you never know what to expect. It's part of the business I guess. I've never been traded before so we'll see what happens."
"I've learned to like this community. I like it here but it's nothing I can do anything about [if a trade happens]. It's not easy. I'm here to play hockey and I've done that so many times. I know what to do. I've been through some trade deadlines before so we'll see."
