Jason Allison, and other restricted free agents
ESPN the magazines E.J Hradek is reporting a deal for the four biggest free agents could happen with in the next couple of weeks. Rumors has the Toronto Maple Leafs will trade Tomas Kaberle to the San Jose Sharks for Mike Rathje. This would be a decent trade, not a great one. Kaberle is more of a goal-scoring type defenseman, and Rathje is more of an enforcer. Jason Allison has been rumored in a 3-way deal with the Oilers and the Kings. The Oilers would get Steve Heinze, Glen Murray and a prospect defenseman, the Bruins would get Anson Carter(again) or Ryan Smyth and Tom Poti, and the Kings would get Jason Allison. I think this would be the biggest trade to be made all year, and a fair. I also find this believable, becuase the Bruins and Oilers are “trading buddies” after last years Bill Guerin for Anson Carter and a prospect deal.
