The Jay Bouwmeester Edition
Alright Panther fans, lets do this. I want to put this out there before something happens. We’ve all heard the rumors out there. We know the Panthers don’t want to fold their tent, but we know it makes little sense to lose him for nothing after the season. So lets see if we can come up with something new to please everyone.
I have an idea for the Leafs. We all know the rumours about Columbus wanting Nikolai Antropov, and how Brian Burke wants a first rounder for him. Then there is Tomas Kaberle. He may very well be on his way out of Toronto this Wednesday. I though of a deal sending Antropov and Kaberle to Columbus.
I’ve posted this trade in a previous comment, and I recieved some positive feedback.
Although not directly sourced (in a link, it’s in a video, Making the List) it is believed that Darren Dreger of TSN.ca is reporting that the St. Louis Blues are interested in making a deal to reacquire Chris Pronger.

Martin St-Louis, Ilya Kovalchuk, Jason Spezza, Olli Jokinen, Jordan Staal and more. Who should the Oilers be looking at?
The Edmonton Oilers head into the trade deadline as neither a real “buyer” or a real “seller”. The club’s only UFA’s are G Dwayne Roloson, F Erik Cole & D Jason Strudwick. If the club has any intention of competing the rest of the season, then Roloson (arguably the Oilers best player this season) cannot be moved. It’s also believed the Oilers and Roli will come together on a new contract to keep the netminder in Edmonton next season. Strudwick should be back in a depth role as well.
The trade deadline is coming in less than 4 days and rumors are more prevalent than ever.
Everything from incredibly insane deals and lopsided deals to surprisingly equal trades have been thrown around in rumors and in a few days many of us will get to see if we were dead on, close or far off.
If anyone was listening into the FAN 590 today, Bob McKenzie has stated that Brian Burke is starting to take offers on propsects Jiri Tlusty, Anton Stralman, and current Leaf players Nik Antropov and Alexei Ponikarovsky.
James Murphy of SBNation is reporting that the Bruins and Ducks have apparently agreed to a trade in principle that would see Pronger go to the Bruins. (Note from HTR that this is an unknown source.)
