Blue Jackets Rumors

Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson is hoping to add a puck-moving defenseman via trade, but he’s not desperate to do so. Howson reiterated today that he’s not burning up phone lines or begging his fellow GMs for help.

“We’d like to make an upgrade, sure,” Howson said. “But if we don’t get a deal done, I’m fine taking this group of defensemen into the start of the season with us. We think it’s a good group; a group that can win games for you.”

Writing's on the wall for Kaberle

As much as Burke loves Kaberle, and Kaberle loves the Leafs, all signs point to a trade

For public consumption anyway, it has been well over a year of mutual admiration and asserting that there is no need for the relationship to end.

Maple Leafs defenceman Tomas Kaberle has professed his love for all things Toronto — save the losing.

Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke has professed his love for all things Kaberle — save the fact that trading him might bring some desperate scoring help.

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.

Tomas Kaberle trade talk cools

Kaberle still a Leaf … for now

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:

Not that teams are waiting until then.

Maple Leafs president/GM Brian Burke said Wednesday from Las Vegas that he already has “four concrete offers” on the table for the veteran blueliner, and that another eight teams have made initial inquiries.

Souray trade imminent?

It’s setting up to be a big weekend for the Edmonton Oilers.

The team will pick first overall at the NHL Entry Draft in Los Angeles on Friday, a first for the franchise, but it looks like general manager Steve Tambellini could be actively looking to move players. 630 CHED’s Dan Tencer reports Oilers defenseman Sheldon Souray is on his way back to Edmonton to receive medical clearance for the wrist injury he suffered in late January.
