Rumors from the Toronto Sun

BRUCE GARRIOCH

RedWings looking for a goalie?

Bolts looking to make a move?

Canes looking at trade options
OFF THE GLASS

The whispers have started that the Red Wings are looking for a goalie with Chris Osgood and Jimmy Howard both struggling. There aren’t many options available … An NHL scout’s take on Tampa Bay’s Vinny Lecavalier: “He looks like a guy playing like he wants to be dealt..” … Ilya Kovalchuk’s agent Jay Grossman and Atlanta GM Don Waddell continue to hold discussions to try to get a contract extension in place. Kovalchuk becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

AROUND THE BOARDS

The Bolts haven’t been thrilled with the play of Andrej Meszaros and there’s talk GM Brian Lawton is trying to move the 23-year-old blue-liner who has five years left on a deal he signed with the club in September, 2008. Making an average of $4 million, the Bolts will find it difficult to find anybody to take him … What’s this we hear about Dallas GM Joe Nieuwendyk sniffing around for a big forward? He’ll be doing a lot of talking in Toronto.

RUMOURS DU JOUR

The Carolina Hurricanes are desperate to make changes, but GM Jim Rutherford is finding it difficult. While there was a rumour the ‘Canes are willing to move Ray Whitney, he has a no-move clause. Sources say Carolina has been offering defenceman Joe Corvo to teams trying to improve their power play … There are plenty of eyes on Peter Forsberg, who will wrap his participation in the Karjala Cup in Finland today. After suiting up with Team Sweden, Forsberg will decide tonight whether he wants to resume his career in the NHL or, perhaps, accept an offer with AK Bars Kazan in Russia. The Canucks are the frontrunners.
