Edm-Nas Rumour off Spector's

My thanks to "Snepts For PM" for the following regarding the Nashville Predators: "A friend in the Nashville Predators General Manager's office told me this
morning that multiple deals are imminent. GM David Poile said publicly last week that "the next six games likely will determine who stays and who goes,"and the names dropped this morning are D Dan Hamhuis, D Tomas Kloucek and DJamie Allison. Here's where my jaw dropped - only wingers Scott Hartnell,Scott Walker and D Marek Zidlicky are deemed "untouchable" by Predators management. Either forward Denis Arkhipov or C David Legwand appear to be heading to Edmonton in a multi-player swap that would include hold-out C Mike Comrie. Edmonton-born C Vernon Fiddler was originally proposed by Poile in a smaller deal, but a swap with "much bigger names" is close to being finalized.

Aside from Arkhipov and Legwand, Oilers GM Kevin Lowe apparently covets
Preds starting G Tomas Vokoun, but with a 2.60 GAA and a .904 save %, my
buddy said Poile "would rather put his balls in a sling" than package his
starter in any deal.


oooooooooh let's hope for Hamhuis of course Legwand or Suter would not hurt my feelings either.
