Buzz: Mark Streit’s Trade Status

On Twitter, TSN’s Darren Dreger says that Wednesday morning could be the cutoff for Streit re-signing with the Islanders. After that, he could head to the trade market:

Also, the Blackhawks acquired center Michael Handzus for a 4th round pick today, filling their need for a center.
