(Yes TSN uses the same term…)
Eklund at HockeyBuzz.com is reporting that he has spoken with a source “very close to the situation” that says the New York Rangers may be Peter Forsberg’s #1 choice if he is to return to the NHL this season.
Everyone likes making trade proposals but they are always so scewed towards their home team so I thought it might be fun to see what everyone would think is a reasonable trade for their team, but there is one catch
I have been coming to this site for 4 years and reading all the so called ideas people post on here about what the toronto maple leafs should do. Well I have not been very impressed with most of the garbage I have read. So in order to be able to grumble without feeling guilty I will put out what I would do if I was Cliff; Although people (me included) Chastize JFJ for many of his moves, I do not buy into the fact that all is lost and nobody is untradeble. First off I would hire 20 more scouts and send them to the four corners of the earth to look to develope atheletes. I would sign brunnsen out of sweden and bring kulmeien over from russia next season.
I have trades here that I will list the first being the first trade I would make not the most important.
Kubina- Raycroft – and cash 5 mil
Kuba – Denis -2nd Round pick 08
This trade doesnt change much except years of the contracts of Denis and Kuba have one year left on there contracts after this one at 6 million the team pays the players VS only a 4.3 cap hit. Tampa wants to save money not cap space because they have plenty still.
On Monday Ray Emery was late once again for practice and was dismissed from practice until Paddock discussed with Murray on where to proceed.
Tampa Bay.com is reporting that a late season fade could have huge trade ramifications for the Lightning.
The New York Post is reporting that defenseman Marek Malik is still a Ranger and may remain a Ranger is the asking price is not lowered.

The New York Rangers have easily been the biggest disappointment in the NHL thus far. There has been little chemistry, locker room problems, goaltending inconsistency, defensive miscues, and a lack of second hand scoring.
