Will Spezza follow Heatley out of capital?

Does Jason Spezza want to be traded?

That was the question posed to the Ottawa Senators forward on Thursday after reports had surfaced that he was unhappy with his current hockey team. Spezza , who was booed by Ottawa fans at the end of this season, has five more years remaining on a $7 million US annual contract.

But the 26-year-old said the decision is not up to him.

DARREN DREGER

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli says that over the past couple of days, teams have inquired about his interest in trading the second overall pick in this month’s NHL draft.

Chiarelli also says he talked to Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini on Wednesday about the potential of flipping picks. Chiarelli adds they will talk again soon.

Burke Listening Too

Is spezza unhappy in Ottawa?

In the next three weeks Bryan Murray will have a very important conversation with Jason Spezza , to see if his star centre is still happy in Ottawa.

At their season-ending meeting in April, Spezza expressed some frustration to the Senators general manager with the way his season ended. He was booed by his home fans in Ottawa during the club’s first-round playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“He was a little unhappy at the end of the year. I took it as being somewhat emotional more than anything. I haven’t talked to him in the last few weeks. I hope before July 1st to have that conversation with him,” said Murray on Wednesday afternoon.

Murray did not confirm that Spezza asked for a trade during that meeting in late April. He simply said his star player felt like he was being unfairly targeted by the fans and media.

Leafs receive two offers for Kaberle

Speaking on HockeyCentral at noon today Leafs GM, Brian Burke stated that the Leafs have received two very serious offers for Kaberle . It is reported that the two offers are more than simple nibbles and are more in the category of “would you consider” an offer like this.

Halak or Price on the move?

They both want to play, Jaroslav Halak and Carey Price are quick to admit. But they know they’re nothing more than pawns in this game, their moves and futures ultimately dictated in the weeks ahead by Canadiens management.

“We’re both young and both want to play as much as we can,” Halak said. “And I’m sure management will do their best to make sure we do play.

What now for Thomas?

Tim Thomas got his first NHL opportunity in Boston. He played in Providence for the Bruins’ AHL club. He spent four years in Burlington, Vt., starring for the University of Vermont. He makes his year-round home north of Boston.

The native of Flint, Mich., considers himself a New Englander. But that status may be in doubt, considering the changing of the guard that took place this season.
