Is there anything better than a good trade rumor? Sure there is. But trade (and free agent) rumors are still pretty sweet. Here are some:
  • The Leafs are interested in Glen Murray
  • The Blues may not pick up their option on Chris Pronger, making him a UFA
  • More players who might be bought out: Patrice Brisebois (MTL), Darius Kasparaitis (NYR), Ray Whitney and Derian Hatcher (DET), Bryan Smolinski and Greg deVries (OTT), Donald Brashear, Danny Markov and Eric Desjardins (PHI)
  • Alexei Yashin might not be bought out by the Isles, as he has six years left on his deal. Ouch.
  • Martin Gelinas hopes to return to the Flames, but they likely don't want him.
  • Gary Roberts, last with Toronto, might be headed to Anaheim
  • Ottawa might be looking at Rod Brind'Amour (hockey's second ugliest man - sorry, but Mike Ricci wins)
  • UFAs who won't be back in Toronto: Brian Leetch, Ron Francis, Bryan Marchment, Alexander Mogilny
  • The Leafs may look to add Scott Niedermayer or Adam Foote. Maybe even Eric Lindros.
  • The Flyers are also very interested in Niedermayer and may also have interest in Mike Modano if the Stars can't re-sign him
  • Hurricanes rumors - in: Gary Roberts, Jason Allison and/or Adrian Aucoin; out: Jeff O'Neill, Pavel Brendl, Marty Murray
  • Finally, Markus Naslund may not be back in Vancouver (yes, I made you read rumors about Marty Murray and Donald Brashear before dropping Naslund on you)
