San Jose to move Marleau ???

The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that this may be the time for the Sharks to trade Patrick Marleau.

Rumors from the Toronto Sun

Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun is reporting that big names such as Olli Jokinen, Marian Hossa, Brad Richards and Brad Campbell will take over the talk from Mats Sundin today.


According to, Mats Sundin has decided he WILL NOT waive his no trade clause.

Hey Leaf fans, lay off

The comments I have heard regarding Mats Sundin in the past few days have been disgusting, and they have all come from the arogant mouths of Leaf fans.

The Dustin Penner Play

The friendship between Edmonton Oiler’s GM Kevin Lowe and Anaheim Ducks GM Brian Burke was ruined last year when GM Brian Burke was forced to decline to match an offer sheet made by GM Kevin Lowe for Dustin Penner because it would have put them over the Maximum Team Salary Cap. Dustin Penner signed a 5-year offer sheet from the Edmonton Oiler’s after the Anahem Ducks declined.
