Puck Daddy's hockey rumors live chat

Every time we have a chat this season, someone will ask about Florida Panthers defenseman and impending UFA Jay Bouwmeester.

As was mentioned in last night's Puck Headlines, it's getting to be end-game time for the Panthers. They're contending for a playoff spot, thanks in part to an all-star season from Bouwmeester. But there have been no discussions with the D-man lately about a new contract.

Keep him for a postseason push and let him walk for nothing? Trade him before the deadline? If so, are you getting players back for this season or prospects for building down the road?

We'll discuss that, some deadline rentals to keep an eye on and what recent moves for the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils mean for their cap space during our weekly rumors, scuttlebutt and innuendo chat. Lyle "Spector" Richardson of Fox Sports will be there; David "Dave" Pagnotta of The Fourth Period will attempt to join us, but is having issues with his 1976 Chevy Chevette.

Chat begins at 1 p.m. EST; as always, bring the funny.
