Morning Rumors VII: Twitter Rumors Involving A Bunch Of Teams And Players I

  • David Pagnotta: “Since yesterday evening, seems things have picked up with Habs. Again, no guarantees, but they’re exploring multiple options on trade front”
  • Pierre LeBrun: “Teams continue to phone Vancouver on Alex Edler… Wasn’t a chip Canucks really looking to move that much but if price is right…”
  • Dave Isaac: “Keep in mind, teams can now go above 23 on their rosters, but have to be cap compliant until playoffs. #Flyers roughly $2.45 M under.”
  • John Vogl: “One thing to note about the Sabres and trades: @capgeek says they have reached their limit on retaining salaries, so any deal is straight-up”
  • John Vogl: “Sabres looking at ‘couple names’ on waiver wire, getting calls on 25 percent of roster, GM tells team site “
  • Josh Yohe: “We know Pens are willing to deal Despres. Have to wonder where his value is right now. Physically gifted. Hasn’t put it all together yet.”
  • Louis Jean: “As I reported yesterday, #Ducks very interested in Kesler. Will a deal get done by 3pm Eastern or will it happen at the draft?”
  • Craig Custance: “If Canucks get the return they’re looking for, they do have the green light from ownership to make a Kesler deal today.”
  • Spector’s Hockey: “I don’t expect #Leafs to trade James Reimer at deadline. They need him in case Bernier burns out or gets hurt down the stretch.”
  • Darren Dreger: “When looking at Brodeur trade possibilities, important to note Marty doesn’t have to be number one. Just the right opportunity/change.”
  • Michael Russo: “BLOG: #mnwild talking to the Buffalo Sabres about Drew Stafford “
  • Louis Jean: “Told it seems unlikely OLli Jokinen will be traded by #Jets. To be continued.”
  • 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.”
  • Nick Kypreos: “Hearing the Canadiens shopping Lars Eller today. Worst kept secret is Bergevin wants more size.”
  • Mark Spector: “Out of CGY, Hudler not out of play. Could help a lot of teams, esp CHI with Hossa hurt. Would love to move Wideman contract. Unlikely.”
  • 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”
  • David Pagnotta: “I expect Columbus to do more than simply trade Gaborik… They want a defenseman and could add a scorer. They’ve inquired about Cammalleri.”
  • Dale Lamontagne: “The New York Rangers have received several inquires regarding Brian Boyle, according to the New York Post.”
  • Rob Rossi: ” #Pens not sure if Kesler is still in play.”
  • Mark Spector: “Per @reporterchris, D Sami Vatanen being available should intrigue a lot of GMs. Also a sign ANA is clearing room for something big.”
  • Jim Diamond: “My guess is that Poile works out a deal to trade Legwand today. Whether or not he accepts it or not is a different story.”
  • David Pagnotta: “Colorado looking for veteran defenseman with term. Guys like McGinn, Parenteau among available players for a ‘hockey trade’”
  • Bruce Garrioch: “My friend Denis Potvin says Anaheim Ducks have made multiple phone calls on Jason Spezza. Still doubt he moves today.”
  • Nick Kypreos: “#Devils will try and move Brodeur. He told his GM last nite he wants out. Lou told him not great market but he’d try his best to do it.”
  • Chris Botta: “As of late last night, the Ducks, Kings and Sharks want you to believe they’re out on Vanek. That could change, of course.”
  • Pierre LeBrun: “As for any speculation about Kesler and Chicago, told by Hawks source that they are NOT in on that. Also not looking for a backup goalie”
  • Darren Dreger: “Nothing in the works, but if the Leafs do something today…it will be big or nothing. Let the Gardiner, Kadri rumours fly.”
