I have been told the the Senators are talking to the Boston Bruins about a package deal involving either Lee or Karlsson going to Boston. My guess is that these are the young defenseman that Boston was asking for in return for Kessel. So look for Kessel to be on the move to Ottawa. So far thats all I got.
New development in the never ending guessing game that is Who Are The Islanders going to take? I've been told from numerous sources that the front office of the organization is torn in all different directions. I've also heard that the owner of the Islanders wants John Tavares as a bargaining chip for a new stadium on Long Island. The newly appointed President of the organization is favoring Victor Hedman and is looking to address offensive needs through trades, Free Agency, and later in the 1st round. Last, Garth Snow is open to dealing the pick if he feels it will help out the organization. The asking price to start is said to be around 2 "above-average" roster players, 2 higher end prospects, and a 1st. But who knows if the Isles will get this or if they will lower their asking price as they have been known to make foolish moves in their history. Check back later for a update
The Florida Panthers will listen to offers for everyone outside of David Booth. We want to become a bigger team who is hard to play against. We are looking for a puck mover but we will not move our first round pick to get it
Big news coming out of the Heatley camp. Teams such as the Calgary Flames, Minnesota Wild, and Vancouver Canucks have made substantial offers and I currently believe they are in the lead. It has yet to be determined of Dany would waive his NTC to go to any of the above teams but the Sens are definitely talking to them. Could it be possible for Luongo be moved? Not likely. On another note, I have heard that Dany is currently on vacation and most likely does not want to be bothered with hockey for the time being. For this reason a trade is not imminent.
What The Hell? The Rangers have apparently found a taker for Wade Redden. I can't believe that a team would take on that contract so I have my doubts if this is a true rumor but i've never had a problem putting up faux rumors up here before.
Byron Bitz- 3 years, 850K per year
Kevin Regan- 1 year 808K (2-way)
Wacey Rabbit- 2 years, 600K per year (2-way)
And I'm very excited to announce that we've come to terms with Swedish winger/center, Carl Soderberg. We expect him to start the season in Providence, unless drastic moves are made.
3 years, 3M (2-way)
Ryan Malone has been dealt to a division rival. I haven't heard anything from the other party but my guess is that the trade partner is one of, the Panthers, Capitals, Hurricanes, or the Thrashers. Could Malone be involved in a deal for David Booth as they asked for a player with some grit? Personally I think this would be a bad move for the Panthers if my hunch is true.
