Do you have a source for this 'rumor'?

Of course, it also says the Flames are going to trade one of their studs on D and Ottawa will get him when they're already really deep on the blueline.
Meanwhile, Lightning GM already denied rumours, but you have to consider the possibility since Tampa Bay likely won't pick up his $6.5 million option for next season(if there is one). Why lose him to UFA when you can get something at the deadline? Of course, unless it's a #1 goaltender coming back the other way, Lightning would be gambling a whole lot to rest their playoff hopes on John Grahame.

Despite his repeated denials, coach Ken Hitchcock's public grumbling about his goaltending leads the Toronto Sun to speculate that Flyers GM Bob Clarke is trying to pull the trigger on a deal for a goalie. Tampa Bay's Nikolai Khabibulin might be available, along with Phoenix's Sean Burke and Washington's Olaf Kolzig.

It's confessed speculation, not a rumor.

Glen Sather has wanted Khabibulin him for a while now.

Who does Phil Esposito work for now? I caught the tail end of an interview with him on foxsports midwest. And all i heard was something like "wow that should really help the blues" from the sportscaster, and the show went off. It was dieing to find out what they were talking about lastnight, but still have seen nothing.

He's the color guy for the Lightning's radio broadcasts, in addition to the beer commercials. :D

Not a chance. We need a bonecrushing defensive defenseman for Khabi, not a softy like Poti.
