Maple Leafs in on James van Riemsdyk

According to Darren Dreger during the Penguins/Leafs game tonight.

Looks like JVR may still be available. I'm assuming that concussion isn't a huge deal.

Any deal would likely have to include Luke Schenn, I'm sure.

during tonight's game the camera panned to Burke and his phone rang. He looked at it and mouthed:

"Holmgren"

Dregers credibility is sliding.

The Leafs are in on every trade or either that's just what Burke wants everyone to think

You should listen better. It's not what Dreger said. He said they may be interested in going after Van Riemsdyk if he is available.

I always look for key words such as "may be" or "could be". Dreger may just be filling up some air time. This guys whole career is trying to find out inside information, I'm sure some GM's drop him some hints but who knows if it's even accurate.

Can't complain about these credible sources becoming inaccurate. We demand rumours and trade talk when it appears nothing is going on. So they say what they hear (and what we want to hear) that doesn't play out, just wait a little

I'm not sure what to make of this. Both players have been sliding this season from what I've seen (JVR) and heard (Schenn, targeted player). I do remember JVR dominating Boston in Game two of the ECSF, but then came back this year without any of the same jump. I wonder if he's battling an injury like Versteeg was when he came to the Flyers. Can anyone comment on how Schenn has been? I heard he had been down to around 16 mins a night at one point.

I've never felt Dreger had a ton of credibility to begin with, I don't know why he ever got so popular. He often leaves things very open ended, he'll say things like "Team could be interested if player is available" like in this scenario. He isn't saying anything, he is just saying one team could possibly be interested in a player if they are possibly open to be acquired.

I remember with examples like Foppa, "*Insert 12 teams here* could be interested in Forsberg. He may sign a deal within the next 24 hours, but it may not be for another week or two if he decides to come back at all"

Just my opinion, but i've always thought he was overrated.

gotta build suspense for that deadline day. Dregers spews stuff like this all the time, only time he is useful is when he is breaking a trade.

I don't mind Dreger, he has a better track record than certain other "insiders." He has more credibility than jokers like eklund and ***************.

If these guys were more on the mark the Leafs would have had Rick Nash months ago.

I think at this point its pretty clear the TSN guys has been told to keep fans in a tither as long as possible leading to the Deadline show.

can't remember the last time anyone really called a trade other than incarcerated bob
(who was surprisingly good actually)

If Dreger is actually right about this, i'd say it'd be more outrageous than the Zidane headbutt

can't see JVR going, I think Philly has too much stock in him.

Eklund and the Mike Richards trade?

don't quite understand the hate for Dreger. His job is to get the inside scoop on trades or make it sound like he's got the inside scoop. Either way, I'd say he's doing his job well. He's generating interest and he's getting people to think about the possibilities. Hey, even if he's just pulling this completely out of his arse (which I'm sure he's not) that's still a pretty convincing job. There are plenty of people who sit around their computers and try to come up with proposals and speculation to better this and that team. Dreger just gets paid to do it.

Even if JVR doesn't get traded to the Leafs, that doesn't mean that the Leafs weren't "in on him" exactly as he reported.

Good point. Imagine how dead this board would be if only sure things were discussed.
