- Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington: There are still rumors that Wayne Gretzky could join the Capitals. Bruins assistant GM Jim Benning appears to the front-runner for the Canucks GM position. Captials GM candidates include Doug MacLean, Craig Button and Mike Gillis. Also in the mix: Dave Poulin, Claude Loiselle, Paul Fenton, Tim Burke and Julien BriseBois.
- Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province: Tim Burke’s name has come up a possible GM in Washington. There has been some talk that Trevor Linden should try and bring in Burke on some level.
“One of the best evaluators of talent,” an NHL source says of the San Jose Sharks’ director of scouting. “Always seems to find hidden gems in the draft. Intense and passionate about the game. A good man.”
- Fluto Shinzawa: Thinking the Canadiens would let Thomas Vanek go even if he wanted to stay. Vanek’s game is built for possession and not counterattack.
