The latest on the Avs, Devils, Rangers, Blues, Islanders, Leafs, and Sabers….
The Montréal Canadiens are considered as one of the top prospect loaded team in the league, to make a big deal we’ll have to part with some of them…
As of right now, it is reported that the Washington Capitals are only in talks with the Colorado Avalanche at trading Olaf Kolzig to them. So far the only stumbling block is how much of Olaf Kolzig’s contract Washington is willing to pick up over the remaining 2 years.
There have been rumors floating around (on this site) about the canadiens being interested in Carolina forward Jeff O’Neill. I feel If habs GM Bob Gainey is indeed interested in O’Neill that he should follow through.
As per Keith Jones reporting on CSN (Philly’s sports channel)
Rangers D-Man Brian Leetch might be heading to either the Flyers or the Bruins.
What it would come down to is who wins the “bidding war” between the two teams…
As a Flyers fan, I say everybody is “fair game” except Pitkanen, Carter, and Richards.
Philly does have a lot of quality prospects in the system.
Caps D-Man Sergei Gonchar most likely will be heading to Colorado! (The Av’s always seem to get a significant deal done before the deadline each year!)
Al Morganti also was quoted as a “source” for this article… (Al is also a sports talk show host on “610 WIP”)

After having a look at the deadline from a team-based point of view in the Buyers and Sellers articles, I’ve decided to look at it now from the players perspectives and determine where I think some of the big name players may be playing after Deadline Day this (March 10th Australia time) March 9th.
TSN had reported that there is some interest being expressd towards Byron Dafoe by John Fergusson Jr. This was seen last night around 11 o’clock on the TSN ticker.
