Afternoon Rumor Roundup – June 29, 2009

Kessel stays put for now

Oilers and Kings to swing a big deal?

With the Vincent-Lecavalier-to-Montreal rumours laid to rest for at least another week, expect the Canadiens’ focus to turn to Swedish twins Henrik and Daniel Sedin.

Talks between the Sedins and the Vancouver Canucks have stalled and it appears they will be on the open market when they become unrestricted free agents tomorrow. The Sedins won’t come cheap – they are looking for long-term deals worth at least $6.5 million a season each – but Canadiens general manager Bob Gainey has more than $30 million available to go shopping.
