Leafy's Rumor Roundup
Here’s the latest on Peter Forsberg, Glen Murray, and the rest.
Adam Proteau says there is speculation that Peter Forsberg may end up in Nashville. Proteau suggests that the Ducks, Flames, or even the Leafs are more likely. I don’t know what Toronto would have to dump to make room for him. With Tellqvist in the minors, the Leafs have about 1.4 in cap sapce, meaning if they add him, it’s a deadline deal. Calgary seems likely, they’ve always needed a centre for Jarome.. imagine an Iginla-Forsberg-Tanguay line? The best pure goal scorer in the league, and two top five play makers in the league. Anaheim could use a forward, and Forsberg and Selanne would be an interesting pair. Selanne made even Andy McDonald look good.
More rumors about Colorado going after a top Tampa forward are circulating, according to Eklund. Brad Richards salary is ridiculously high, and Marty St Louis has a no trace clause, meaning that Vincent Lecavalier seems to be the most likely player they are chasing. Vancouver or Calgary are also apparently chasing the forward.
More Avalanche news, the Avs are apparently looking for a power forward, or a stay at home defenseman, and apparently they are offering up John Michael Liles, who by the way, should probably have been suspended for the Ryan Smyth knee.
The Carolina Hurricanes are apparently shopping forward Kevyn Adams, no word yet on when the Canes forward will learn how to spell his first name.
