Latest Rumors in NHL

Wanna know the latest rumors on some teams? Well i have some on Calgary, Tampa, New York, Colorado, Blue Jackets and Florida. Calgary: Marc Savard asked for a trade last season… he wasn’t traded. He told the team he no longer wants to be dealt… so he’s still a member of the Calgary Flames – for now. Speculation continues to mount that Savard will find himself wearing a different jersey in the coming weeks. One report suggests the Pittsburgh Penguins, Columbus Blue Jackets, Vancouver Canucks and New Jersey Devils have all shown interest in the centerman.

Tampa Bay: Tampa Bay general manager Jay Feaster stomped on a rumor he might trade Keefe to the Florida Panthers. “I can put that to rest absolutely, positively,” Feaster told the St. Petersburg Times. “I have no intention of trading Sheldon Keefe. As for the rumor we’re trading him to the Florida Panthers, if that happens you’d better check the skates the devil is wearing because hell will have frozen over.”

New York: The New York Rangers continue to shop defenseman Tomas Kloucek in hopes of acquiring added offense.

Colorado: According to published reports, the Colorado Avalanche are apparently unhappy with the poor play of young forward Alex Tanguay and might consider moving him. Colorado is said to be looking for a big forward and might be interested in Brad Isbister of the Islanders.

Florida: The Florida Panthers are still looking to move winger Valeri Bure, while center Viktor Kozlov could be another possibility. The New York Islanders have apparently expressed interest in the two, and NY Newsday states that Panthers coach Mike Keenan never misses the opportunity to praise Dave Scatchard (currently an Islander), whom he coached in Vancouver. Isles’ GM Mike Milbury recently threatened to make changes if the Islanders’ poor play continued, but has yet to make good on it.

Also, the Columbus Blue Jackets’ GM Doug McLean is interested in Rangers Radek Dvorak. However, Dvorak will stay as a Ranger with the new line of Petrovicky-Nedved. Starting to work well, great game against the Oilers. I read the article from the Columbus Dispatch*.

    My bad, i was supposed to add that in.

    Forget Savard going to New Jersey. He is a headache in the locker room, whines too much on the ice, and off it, and why would they need him when they have Gomez as a playmaker? THEY NEED A FINISHER!

    Florida needs just about anything. They can fool teams, they are not easy, or hard, to beat, but they can win games. Still, they need just about anything in every position.

    Kloucek on the block, he is starting to become expandable. Purinton is earning his spot on the Rangers (all thanks to Schoenfeld). This time i can say Purinton did in fact shut down Iginla in two periods, as the Messier line with Purinton pairing did not allow Iginla to get a shot on goal. Tjutin in the minors, Lintner will soon come back from an injury, Lampman, and others….point is, the Rangers are starting to make better draft picks. As good as Kloucek can be, and i think he will be good, the Rangers can try to deal him. Leafs could use Kloucek.

    Avs: They need something, anything, and i’d take Tanguay in a heartbeat. However, Lecroix chose wrong. SHould have been traded Tanguay for Morris, not Drury.

    Again, Florida needs anything, so do the Isle’s. This is the Isle’s team i expected last season, sure…no Peca, but is it a one man team?

    I`m an Ottawa fan,i wouldnt mind seing Tanguay or Isbister in Ottawa.We probably need more Isbister though(we lack a big power forward.Tanguay is srtugling but will snap out of it.Isbister to Ottawa for Arvedson+ 2nd round pick or Schastlevy,Bure(Valeri) to islanders for Scatchard(would be stupid but its mad Mike after all) and Tanguay to Tampa bay for Modin.

  5. mikster says:

    Are ya nuts? I wouldn’t even trade Arvedson for Isbister straight up. They guy is just a power forward because of his size, but he is just a wimpie big size player, veyr overrated.

    Tanguay for Modin? I’d do it if i were Tampa, not if i were Colorado.

    Val Bure with Yashin? Probably….it’s Mad Mike….

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I just don’t think that TFP should be used as a reliable source. Seems to me that their news and rumors were cut and pasted from somewhere else, and slower. Their own speculation is nearly as bad as the people on the ESPN boards or the HockeysFuture boards.

    Sure, they are a fairly central location for this type of news. But chances are you heard it somewhere else first, unless the only place you ever go for hockey news is TFP. Could just be me but I can’t recall seeing a breaking story (that happened to be true) on TFP first. To each his own, I guess.

    I am just replying about the Alex Tanguay/Brad Isbitter rumor, i though Alex Tanguay had alot of skills last season and especially the season before, he plays well in the playoffs, but he just plain sucks in the regular season as of late. I am starting to think that the Av’s might benefit from dealing him for Isibister, but I’d like to hear some other options first.

    I am from TFP and here is what i can tell you.

    TFP was First to report about Holik, Guerin and others. Any current ones? TFP reported about Rucinsky and Barrasso two days or so before any other source did.

    TFP is still young and growing. It’s not easy to get rumors, especially since we are still young. You can consider it reliable enough, especially since it breaks news before others too.

    As if Isbister is better….If i were Mad Mike i’d do that deal in a flash.
