It's trade deadline day and for the 29 GMs shopping at the ACC this year, I've done got the scouting report you need right here. We've got tons of fine merchandise, and it's all available. Except for Rielly and Nylander, we'll probably hang on to them. No reasonable offer will be refused, and receive a Brandon Kozun free with any purchase.

Last night, I headed to Pearson Airport. No, I wasn't traded to a different blog on the Network (yet). My Nonna was coming home on an Alitalia flight after spending a few months in Italy, so we felt like picking her up was probably a good idea. Unfortunately, her flight was delayed, so we were there for an hour longer than planned.

We're getting conflicting reports from Sportsnet and TSN, but nonetheless, there's a lot of talk around the Toronto Maple Leafs' Dion Phaneuf.

Not long ago, Sportsnet's John Shannon reported that the Detroit Red Wings have no interest in Dion Phaneuf at this time, throwing a whole bunch of cold water on TSN's Darren Dreger's earlier reports that Detroit and two other teams had talked to the Leafs about their captain.

From Shannon:

Wishful thinking from maple Leafs fans that Dion Phaneuf was going out of town. If the thought was that he's going to Detroit, he's not going to Detroit. There is at this point no way that Dion Phaneuf is going to be a Detroit Red Wing. It certainly looks like that right now.

Now, Dreger is back with an update, and he's not ready to concede. Apparently, Dion-to-Detroit is still very much a possibility. More after the jump!
