Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun provides plenty of speculation on the rumor front. One of the tid bits of speculation that he provides is that the Los Angeles Kings have stepped into the Peter Forsberg shopping spree. He also speculates that the New York Islanders have made a waiver dump in order to sign free agent Bryan Berard.Although the Berard move is a no brainier for the Islanders HTR believes that it is highly unlikely that Forsberg will go to the Kings. Why would he go to a rebuilding team in LA when he knows that “good” teams such as Ottawa, Detroit and Vancouver are lining up to add him to their team.

Two other little tidbits of interest in this article include the possibility that the Leafs will pick up Dave Scatchard and the possibility that Pavol Demitra is unhappy with the coaching in Minnesota.
