I think this is a way of trying to get teams that are already in negotiations to improve their low offers. I believe there isn't a deal in place.
i agree, no one announces trades before they happen except for ottawa (ie the heatley to edmonton trade) gillis is desperate and if they lose to the flames tomorrow it will be way way worse
