NHL Rumors IV: Caps, Vanek, Cammalleri, Iginla, Vrbata and Weaver
- Andy Strickland: Some agents saying the free agent talking period is too long and that only two days are needed.
- Scott Cullen: “Impressed that teams aren’t giving qualifying offers to every RFA. Better to make decisions & live with them rather than go on auto-pilot..”
- Renaud Lavoie: Thomas Vanek has shortened his list to four, possibly five teams. John Shannon: Vanek was to get his list down to four or teams by last night.
- Chris Nichols: Bob McKenzie reporting the Flames have presented Mike Cammalleri number of different options on term and money.
- David Pagnotta: There is lots of interest in Cammalleri. The Flames would like to keep him, but he might get a better deal somewhere else. The Canucks are not in the mix.
- Will DePaoli: Word is Jarome Iginla expanded his list to include the Lightning, Red Wings, Wild and Anaheim. The Wings and Lightning seem the most likely.
- Elliotte Friedman: Doesn’t look like the Coyotes and Radim Vrbata were able to get a deal done last night and he’ll got the open market today.
