Some of the latest rumors and tid bits

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun provides quite a bit of speculation in his latest article.

He begins by talking about the Habs continued interest in Mats Sundin. It is reported that Bob Gainey went to LA this past week to meet with Sundin in an effort to lure the ageing star to Montreal. It is noted that one possibility if Sundin did in fact go to Montreal would be trading Alexei Kovalev.

Garrioch also reports that the Canucks hold out the possibility to landing Sundin. It is well known that the Canucks 10 million dollar 2 year deal is still on the table and HTR believes that Sundin could be waiting for the worst of the Canucks road schedule to be over before joining the team. Garrioch indicates that if the Canucks are unable to land Sundin they may make a pitch for Jason Spezza.

There is a tid bit of information in the article on Brendan Shanahan. It is noted that the Flyers only have very little cap space left leading to a remote possibility of Shanahan playing for the Flyers this season.
