Burke ready to deal and has Savard in his sights

His seven prospects locked up in his suitcase as he returned to Toronto, Leafs GM Brian Burke set his mind on what will be a busy few days leading up to Thursday’s free agent frenzy.

First up is Marc Savard. The Bruins are said to be ready to ship their playmaking centre. The Leafs are in the mix, and the price tag is much cheaper than Thomas Kaberle.

This opportunity is an unintended consequence of the Phil Kessel trade.

Trade of Marc Savard may be Bruin

The names Tyler Seguin and Marc Savard may be inexorably linked now, and maybe not as fellow centermen on the Bruins.

As soon as Edmonton Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini announced his team’s selection of winger Taylor Hall last night at the Staples Center, it ended any suspense about which player the Bruins would get with the No. 2 overall pick.

The Dust Settles, Tallon Not Ready to Rest … Panthers Have Nine Lives/Picks

Don’t look now, but Dale Tallon looks refreshed and ready to take on the second day of the NHL Draft.

The Panthers new general manager has much to play with as he goes into Saturday’s second round.

And he says he’s ready to do something with those assets.

“We’re open to any suggestions,” Tallon said. “We’re not going to sit still. We’re going to have some fun, experiment and take some risks. We’re going to see what happens.”

Tallon traded Nathan Horton to Boston on Tuesday, getting back defenseman Dennis Wideman and the 15th overall pick in return.

Talk of Ribeiro trades

In talking to people today, the Stars are indeed trying to move Mike Ribeiro.

They believe that if the Stars want to improve the team, they need to open up space in the budget (Ribeiro makes $5 million a year for the next three years) to acquire a defenseman, and they believe the Stars have replacements at center with Jamie Benn and Tom Wandell.

Burke gets ready to begin Kaberle auction

Officially, the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tomas Kaberl e hits the open market Friday, when his no-trade clause disappears for a six-week period, and the auction is underway in earnest.

A half-dozen teams have made firm offers for Kaberle, and six others have expressed an interest, according to Leafs general manager Brian Burke who, on Thursday afternoon, said nothing was close.

“This is not a transaction that is draft specific,” said Burke. “This is just as likely to happen after the draft or not happen at all, as it would happen here.”

Kaberle-Savard deal? 'No truth to it'

You can forget all those Internet-fueled Boston Bruins-Toronto Maple Leafs trade rumors involving either Tomas Kaberle or Marc Savard .

“There’s no truth to it,” Leafs GM Brian Burke told ESPN.com on Wednesday.

That’s not to say Kaberle can’t end up a Bruin one day, but it won’t be for Savard. Kaberle is on the trade market; Burke has been up front about that all along. But the Bruins haven’t moved into the picture at this point. Burke took the time to fully update the Kaberle situation for us:
