before we go on... zippo nailed it. i was just e-mailed what the ESPN rumor actually says underneath the ridiculous ****ing headline "Whitney to Pens imminent?"
There are several potential trade destinations for Ray Whitney but no hockey writer has put his money where his mouth is. The Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson writes, "I'd be willing to bet $20 that Carolina Hurricanes winger Ray Whitney, who will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, will wind up in Pittsburgh, playing with either Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, at the deadline."
But previously, Matheson wrote that he thought the Boston Bruins would acquire Whitney: "Chances are Carolina Hurricanes UFA Ray Whitney will end up with the Boston Bruins as a trade-deadline deal for a second-round draft pick. The offensively-challenged Bruins will perhaps ask Mark Recchi what he thought of Whitney from the Canes' 2006 Cup run."
There were also reports that the Los Angeles Kings might end up acquiring the 37-year-old soon -- especially if it looks like they won't land Ilya Kovalchuk.
The Columbus Blue Jackets may also be interested, as well as the Philadelphia Flyers.
so... yeah. ESPN rumors sections -- intentionally writing misleading headlines to try and get people to pay a monthly fee for "insider access!"
