Canucks and Tampa looking to make some deals?

Darren Dreger of tsn.ca speculates that the Canucks are actively shopping Ohlund and that the Tampa Bay Lightning are eager to shed some salary.

Some of the names that are mentioned that the Lightning could be willing to trade include the recently signed Olaf Kolzig and Radim Vrbata. Of interest in the article is that it is mentioned that the Canucks may be willing to make a trade with the Lightning about the availability of Matt Carle who could be brought in to fill a defensive void in the event that Ohlund is traded.

HTR would find it very hard to believe that Ohlund would be the one to be traded out of Vancouver. He has a no trade clause and is very happy to be in Vancouver. HTR believes that it is much more likely that Sami Salo is traded despite his no trade clause as the Mike Gillis has tried hard to rid the Canucks of injury prone players since his arrival.
