Morning Rumors V: Kesler, Habs, Sabres, Bruins, Oilers, Wings, Sens, Rangers, Leafs and Rangers

  • Bob McKenzie: “Getting a sense remaining Kesler options for VAN are PIT or ANA or not trading him at the deadline. Fluid process, tho. Still time.”
  • Jimmy Murphy: “According to one of said sources, Canadiens very hesitant to part with Tinordi or any top prospects. “
  • Nick Kypreos: “Hearing the Canadiens shopping Lars Eller today. Worst kept secret is Bergevin wants more size.”
  • David Pagnotta: “No guarantees Ehrhoff is dealt today. The Sabres want a solid package in return. Will teams be willing to match the asking price? We’ll see.”
  • Pierre LeBrun: “B’s still looking for a D-man, maybe get 1 or 2 depending on price… Options include likes of N. Schultz, Meszaros, Tallinder, among others”
  • Darren Dreger: “Also told teams starting calling Oilers brass on Sam Gagner again yesterday.”
  • Darren Dreger: “Told Ottawa is among the teams interested in Hemsky. Good look at his upside last night. Best on the ice for the Oilers”
  • Larry Brooks: “Not quite stepping out on limb here but told it could go either way with Callahan. Tampa asking for young guys with Callahan for StLouis.”
  • Mark Spector: “Right now, price tag for Martin St. Louis too high for NYR’s liking. Deal remains unlikely, unless price comes down.”
  • Renaud Lavoie: “Hearing Maple Leafs are looking actively for a D today. But not a lot of space under the cap.”
  • Dan Murphy: “I said it yesterday, but I just don’t see Ryan Kesler getting moved today. This deal can be made in the summer with more bidders. “
  • Michael Russo: Wild winger Torrey Mitchell denies rumor that he asked for a trade.
  • Steve Lloyd: (8:35 last night) “As of now, I’m told a deal between the #Sens & #Sabres is doubtful. Prices are still high, so that could change tomorrow. “
