Lots of Speculation from the Toronto Sun

Bruce Garrioch of the torontosun.com provides a ton of speculation in his latest article.

His first rumor is that it seems that Florida GM Jacques Martin has been quietly shopping Olli Jokinen because of his slow start. Although heavily denied by the Florida ownership group it is reported that a bit of a battle may be starting to brew between the team owner and Martin. HTR feels that the team owner wins 98% of those battles.

The Dallas Stars with new GM’s Brett Hull and Les Jackson may be in “deal mode.” Garrioch Speculates that the name that could end up in Dallas is Glen Murray, who could play along side Mike Modano.

The Calgary Flames have apparently been having talks with the San Jose Sharks that involve Patrick Marleau. There may be something to this as the Sharks will have to honor their two year contract extension that involves a no trade clause at the beginning of net season.

    Virtually all of the Florida papers are reporting that the Jokinen rumors are false.

    Hull comes in as GM and wants to an aging over the hill veteran who is past his prime…what a shock!

  3. mikster says:

    Garrioch should be banned from the hockey world.

  4. lukeleim says:

    along with Eklund

    And let's add Steve Simmons as well just to spice things up.

    Bruce Garrioch, Flaming Steve Simmons, and can’t forget good ol’ Al Strachan.

    Jokinen is going nowhere. The franchise face, most underrated player disputably. And Marleau? Just resigned. SJ wants him. What else can we pull from the hat?

  8. nosnow_here says:

    Who the Hell does Hull think he is? Gretzky?

  9. FlamingHomer says:

    That may be difficult but we could at least ban any of his made up, drug induced
    rumors from being mentioned on this site.

    There's a bunch of productive things one could do with a Bruce Garrioch article.

    line a bird cage with it
    house train a new puppy
    wrap fish
    use it as masking when painting
    in an emergency, toilet paper (very apropos)

    but the last thing one should do is quote it on a rumour site.

    It just doesnt make sense as to WHY the Sharks would think of dealing Marleau, hes their captain.  SJ arguably has the best 1-2 punch when it comes to centers in the league, why would they give that up.  Marleau is at a decent price and its not like SJ is struggling for cap space anyways, it just doesnt make sense.

    And if anyone wants to take Glen Murray then Boston would be stupid not to make that trade.  Murray is getting old, is overpaid and seems to need a change of scenery, take watever u can get for him.

    Also Florida cant trade Jokinen, they cant just keep trading away there best players and going threw minor retooling phases.  Florida has to eigther start being active in the UFA market and start icing a better product.  Florida has been mediocre for too long and needs to start competing, trading their best player and captain wont solve anything.

    Jokinen has a slow start? 23 points from 22 games isn't slow.  What are you talking about?
