OTTAWA SUN: Bruce Garrioch reports the Blackhawks are looking to move Kris Versteeg, Andrew Ladd and Brian Campbell to free up cap space. It's believed they've been offered a late first rounder and a prospect for Versteeg...Keith Ballard could be the next Florida Panthers to be dealt. The Anaheim Ducks could be a destination...Speculation persists the Bruins could shop Marc Savard. The Phoenix Coyotes might be interested...The Flyers are believed shopping Jeff Carter and might try to use him as bait for a goaltender...The Sharks might target Florida's Tomas Vokoun for a possible trade...Expect the Bruins to move Tim Thomas...If the Senators deal Anton Volchenkov's right before July 1st they'll get a conditional pick next year.
I agree with Spector, I don't think he will accept a trade to come here seeing that he has a NTC, but I don find it interesting that we are rumored to get a notable center.
IIRC, his NTC doesn't kick in until July 1, so for the next week Ottawacould deal him to anyone. I think that's why the constant rumors are floating around him right now-if they are serious about trading him and wait until July 1 to pursue offers he can veto a deal. I'd love to see him, but as has been beat into the ground we just don't have enough to get him.
As a Marc Savard fan he sure is allot of fun to watch play the game. One of the best passers in the NHL if you ask me. He makes his forwards better by making passes that are flat out ridiculous. With that being said, 7 mil for a 32 year old coming off a wicked concussion last year might be a bit steep.
