The Eklund's Top Six FA Forwards And Who Wants Them + Parise On The Block? *UNPAUSE*

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklun...Part-1/1/36764

Quote:
"Top Six Forwards and the Teams That Love Them..."

#1 Brad Richards.
Teams Interested: NY Rangers ,Toronto, Colorado, Buffalo, LA, Philadelphia.
What more can be said...I want to focus this blog on the other guys. Richards is a major impact player.

#2 Ville Leino.
Teams interested. Philly, LA, Vancouver, Montreal, Buffalo, Nashville, Winnipeg, San Jose.

es, the Flyers are considering am offer sheet to Stamkos. Will it happen? I think it will. Will the Lighnting match I think they will. Should the Lightning match and return to the days when they were a one line team? Well...that's tomorrow's blog.. But has the Stamkos stuff distracted the Flyers from getting Leino, a player Ed Snider has said MUST be signed, inked.

It is my feeling the Flyers are on the verge of making an enormous mistake and not re-signing Ville Leino. This player has been clutch, at times dominant, can change a game, possesses the rare skill of being able to slow down the game, and he has shown up time an time again with season changing plays at clutch moments. And don't forget. Leino has only played in 149 NHL games and put up 73 points. However, over the last two season he has put up 26 pointa in 30 playoff games.

What is even more crazy is Leino, while I am calling him a top 6, has played on the Red Wings and Flyers where he hasn't been a top 6 all the time and has gotten very little power play time. Prior to this last season Leino had a total of 1 NHL power play goal in the regular season. This season he netted 5 of his career high 19 on the power play. In the playoffs Leino has 1 power play goal in his NHL career..but I remember it. It came last year against the Sabres in round one and was the first power play goal the team had after a ton of missed opportunities. In last year's playoffs Leino put up 21 points in 19 games for the Flyers. He had two game winning goals...but ZERO power play goals.

Leino has been buried off the power play because of depth in Detroit and Philly. It reminds me alot of Patrick Sharp's time as a Flyer, and I feel losing Leino would, in the end, rival losing Sharp.

The Eks has been on a roll this week. Probably ******** like usual, but hey, most reports aren't reliable near July 1st.

I mean sometimes I really want to believe he's some sort of insider and all that, but when he ends a blog post with "Adding more shortly....just got a call on a big rumor....."

Oh, and Colorado interested in Richards? Did he just need a 6th team to throw in there as filler to make it look better or something?

Ok, I don't like Eklund, but he DOES report rumors, even though he makes them up.

Any guesses on what this new "big" rumor is going to be?

Crosby+ to Leafs?
Datsyuk+ to Leafs?
Toews+ to Leafs?

He's waiting for someone here to make one up so he can post it on his site and slap an e4 on it.
