News: The Panthers have recalled Ryan Whitney from AHL San Antonio, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.

News: The Panthers assigned Ryan Whitney to AHL San Antonio on Monday, the Miami Herald's George Richards reports.

Panthers Place Whitney On Waivers

News: Ryan Whitney was placed on waivers Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
Analysis: It looks like Ryan Whitney will be the first domino to fall in what could be a series of moves in the post-Kevin Dineen era. Whitney had been a regular healthy scratch for the Panthers, appearing in only six games and posting a minus-7 rating.

Panthers' Whitney Scratched Thursday

News: Ryan Whitney is on the trading block, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney was a healthy scratch against the Bruins on Thursday, and Panthers GM Dale Tallon has reportedly sent out an email to all the other GMs in the league saying that Whitney is available to be traded.

Stars' Whitney Tallies Two Helpers

News: Ryan Whitney picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: It's been a pretty quiet start to the year for the 41-year-old Ryan Whitney, who's got six assists, but hasn't found the net in nine games. Always a reasonably high-percentage shooter, Whitney's likely to get the monkey off his back soon. That said, at his age, a drop-off in productivity wouldn't be surprising.

Whitney Signs With Panthers

News: Ryan Whitney signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Sunday, TSN.ca's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney missed the cut in a tryout with the Blues in the preseason and has landed quickly in South Florida. He is an experienced veteran on defense and is entering his 10th season playing in the NHL. He is not a big scorer from the back, but he can rack up some solid assists for a defenseman.

Ryan Whitney

Blues Release Whitney From Tryout

News: The Blues released Ryan Whitney from his tryout offer Friday.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney was given a chance to make the club during training camp, but he didn't show enough to make the final cut. Though Whitney had trouble finding an interested team this offseason, he is still just 30 years old, so he could get a look at some point this season.

Blues Invite FA Whitney To Camp

News: The Blues have extended a training camp invitation to Ryan Whitney, reports TSN.ca. He had four goals and nine assists in 34 games with Edmonton last season.
Analysis: My, my -- hasn't he fallen. The Blues are deep on the blue line, so he certainly wouldn't be called upon to be someone he isn't. He has played in 474 NHL games and has 50 goals and 209 assists in that span.

Former Oiler Whitney Still Unsigned

News: Ryan Whitney is still unsigned and no team is currently banging on the door to ink him to a contract, reports the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: He earned well north of $3 million last year, but he'll probably have to take a deal around $1 million. Teams like the Islanders, Lightning, Panthers and Predators might be fits, but he could end up having to wait through training camp. He still has fantasy value depending on his role. Just remember the injury risk that accompanies him.

Oilers' Whitney Rips Team

News: Ryan Whitney (lower body) has ripped the organization for making him a healthy scratch so many times this season, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney had no problem stating that there were others who should've been scratched before him. If Whitney's play hadn't made him unlikely to return to Edmonton next season, his words more than likely have.

Edmonton's Whitney Sits Friday

News: Ryan Whitney (leg) missed his second-consecutive game on Friday, sitting during the Oilers' 6-1 win over Minnesota.

Oilers' Whitney (Leg) Ruled Out Wednesday

News: Ryan Whitney (leg) will not play Wednesday against the Blackhawks, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney has a chance at getting back in the lineup two remaining games, but with the Oilers out of the playoff race, he probably won't play if he's at less than 100 percent. Mark Fistric will take his spot on the blue line Wednesday.

Oilers' Whitney (Undisclosed) Day-To-Day

News: Ryan Whitney is currently listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Dan Tencer of 630 CHED reports.

Oilers' Whitney Scores Second Goal

News: Ryan Whitney notched his second goal of the year in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Jackets.
Analysis: After being confined to the doghouse for a while, suddenly Ryan Whitney's scored three goals in two games. He even set a season high in shots Tuesday, putting three on goal -- not an impressive statistic, but it's a start.

Oilers' Whitney Back In Lineup, On Scoreboard

News: Ryan Whitney scored Edmonton's second goal in Friday's loss to St. Louis, his first game after being a healthy scratch for several contests.
Analysis: The odds are high that Edmonton will look to move Ryan Whitney before the April 3 trade deadline and performances like Friday's could help convince a team to take on the albatross that is Whitney and his bloated contract. He has the offensive skill to contribute, but he has a tendency to disappear more than occasionally.

Ryan Whitney, D, FLA Oilers' Whitney Will Play Friday

Ryan Whitney

Oilers' Whitney Will Play Friday

News: Ryan Whitney will play for the Oilers versus the Blues on Friday, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Injuries to Mark Fistric and Corey Potter necessitated Ryan Whitney's inclusion into the lineup. Fistric and Potter aren't expected to be out more than a game or two, so Whitney could find himself riding the pine as soon as Sunday if he doesn't impress coach Ralph Kreuger.

Teams Not Lining Up for Oilers' Whitney

News: The Oilers are not receiving any trade offers for Ryan Whitney, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney has been caught in a game of musical chairs in Edmonton, and the music has stopped quite often without him having a chair. A trade would seem to be the best thing for both sides but Whitney's trade value seems to be next to zero right now, which is surprising as a defenseman seems to be at the top of quite a few team's needs.

Oilers' Whitney Once Again A Healthy Scratch

News: Ryan Whitney was a healthy scratch once again Saturday versus Phoenix, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: That marks the fifth time in the last nine games that Ryan Whitney has watched from the press box. Unless an injury occurs, it would be an upset if Whitney is still with the team by the time the trade deadline expires.

Oilers Scratch Whitney Again

News: Ryan Whitney will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Wild, the Edmonton Journal reports.

Oilers' Whitney Back In Lineup

News: Ryan Whitney will be back in the lineup for Saturday's tilt versus Colorado, according to the Oilers web site.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney had been a healthy scratch for three of the past five games but with pair with Jeff Petry on Saturday.

Ryan Whitney

Oilers' Whitney To Be Scratched Once Again

News: Ryan Whitney will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: These scratches are now becoming a semi-regular thing, as Ryan Whitney will watch his third game in the last five from the press box. Whitney has spoken up about his frustration with not being in the lineup, but this is the second straight season in which he's been ineffective on the ice, as he's got three assists and a minus-6 rating in 10 games.

Ryan Whitney

Oilers' Whitney Could Be On The Trade Block

News: Ryan Whitney may be traded by the Oilers in the near future, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Ryan Whitney has been a healthy scratch in two of the last four games and doesn't seem to be a favorite of new coach Ralph Krueger. Whitney is also a free agent after the season and the Oilers may want to see what they can get for him rather than just see him walk away for nothing.
