All the major media outlets are reporting Anisimov, Dubinsky, Erixon and a 1st...according to my sources, Nathan MacKinnon is also going to the Blue Jackets.
My sources tell me Howson was asking for the most coveted Rangers' asset, Glen Sather's ability to fleece other teams via trade, but after a three minute phone call had instead tentatively agreed to toss Ryan Johansen into the package to 'upgrade' Erixon to Wade Redden.

How does Sather manage to rip all of these GM's off in trades? Our rumoured packaged of Zibby, Lehner, Foligno + is a much better deal than the one they got from New York. It makes me kind of mad we had to give up Foligno to get Methot. If Sather was our GM, he would have got Methot for Condra.
Apparently Shane Doan is expected to sign this week, and the NHLPA's counter offer could come as early as today.
I don't think it is... from what I gather, Fehr's stated he won't make a counteroffer until the PA's auditors have finished reviewing every NHL team's financial documents. The PA just received the first 76 000 pages of team financials on July 31st (at most it's 1/3 of the documents requested).
