Rumour - Rolston/Ax - O'Neill/Svoboda

HURRICANES-BRUINS PLANNING A DEAL?

EAGLE-TRIBUNE ONLINE: Russ Conway reported on Sunday the Carolina Hurricanes are trying to obtain forwards Brian Rolston and PJ Axelsson from the Boston Bruins. Conway claims forwards "Jeff O'Neill and Jarislav Svoboda are trade bait".

Spector's Note: My thanks to "Francois". It was believed the recent coaching change in Carolina would bolster O'Neill's offence, but he remains mired in his season-long slump. Rolston is slated to become a UFA next summer and we know the Bruins track record when it comes to retaining UFAs. Still, this deal wouldn't address the Bruins most pressing need: obtaining a good two-way blueliner to anchor their powerplay.
