Rumors from Bruce Garrioch

All those teams looking for goaltending help might want to give Edmonton GM Steve Tambellini a call. He’s not shopping G Nikolai Khabibulin and his $3.75-million cap hit, but the Oilers are certainly listening to offers on all their players in the midst of another lost season. Bolts GM Steve Yzerman has to start thinking about next season and Khabibulin did win a Cup in Tampa in 2004. Many believe Burke should go after a goalie because as time ticks away on the season, the Leafs don’t have a true No. 1 … Vancouver GM Mike Gillis, a longtime reader of this space, has been working the phones. Some of his counterparts say Gillis wants to add grit after the Bruins ran roughshod over the Canucks in the Cup final last season. Don’t be surprised if he acquires Anaheim RW George Parros. By the way, don’t expect to see Vancouver G Cory Schneider dealt. One team on the asking price for Schneider: “Stupid high.” … The Penguins have more than a passing interest in Tampa’s Dominic Moore. They aren’t the only team, either.
