What’s another day without a fresh new Maple Leaf trade rumor?
TFP is reporting that the New York Islanders are interested in acquiring Leaf defenseman Bryan McCabe.
The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired Jaroslav Modry from LA for a 3rd rounder. Don’t know how much this helps. Flyers are loaded with average defensemen and need a great puck mover. Don’t know how much Modry will solve any problems. Thought they were more in the market for Campbell or Kaberle. Maybe this is a set up move for something else…i sure hope so.
The Toronto Sun is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs are asking way too much for Mats Sundin.
The Globe ad Mail is reporting that Tampa Bay forward Brad Richards may be on the trading block.
RDS reports that the Montreal Canadiens have acquired Olivier Latendresse from the Phoenix Coyotes which is Guillaume’s brother.
First reports are that Lidstrom has suffered a knee sprain when hit by Colorado forward Ian Laperriere into the boards. Anyone that saw this hit saw that Lidstrom looked to have more then a knee sprain as he looked groggy trying to skate back to the bench but word is that he was tested for a cuncussion which he passed showing no signs of a head injury.
According to RDS.ca, Phoenix has traded Oliver Latendresse to the Montreal Canadiens. He will be joining his younger brother Guillaume in the Canadiens organization. No talk yet of who the Yolks get back in return.
TSN.ca is reporting that C Peter Forsberg will not be returning for the 07/08 season.
Forsberg’s agent Don Baizley has begun advising NHL teams that Forsberg doesn’t have enough confidence in his wonky foot to commit to a return to the league this season.
