Ray Whitney is still a member of the Carolina Hurricanes, despite talk of a possible trade leading up to Friday's Olympic deadline freeze.
The Los Angeles Kings still have interest in the 37-year-old, who has 45 points this season, including 17 goals and 28 assists.
Carolina believes they will get a first round pick and a prospect in return for Whitney, who wants an extension and would waive his no-trade clause for a two-year extension.
Originally, when this trade was proposed to him, he asked for a three-year extension and Los Angeles countered with one-year.
If the Kings were to give the extra year, this trade would likely happen.
It remains in a holding pattern and will likely be a deadline deal.
