Canes in numerous trade discussions

Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford has been very active lately, fielding calls from several teams over some of his players, while making a few calls of his own.

The Hurricanes are looking to make some noise in the trade market and could have multiple deals in the works, TFP has learned.

Carolina is trying to move defenseman Tim Gleason, as several media outlets have reported, and a trade could be ironed out as early as this week, once he returns from injury reserve.

Gleason, 30, has been limited to just seven games this season due to a lower-body injury.

He has a no-trade clause and will have to sign off on any deal Carolina tries to make, and he has two-years left on his current contract beyond this season that pays him $4.5 million this season and next, and $3.5 million in 2015-16.

Rutherford is also in talks with a few teams regarding backup goalies Justin Peters and Anton Khudobin, who is also coming back from injury this week.

It's believed the Hurricanes could move one of these two netminders in the near future.

The Hurricanes are also dangling forward Tuomo Ruutu as trade bait, but his $4.5 million cap hit has scared off a number of clubs.
