Sourced Trade Rumours 7

Here is the 7th Sourced Trade Rumours article.

Coming from http://www.thefourthperiod.com/rumors.html

Edmonton Oilers: With the Oilers ranking near the bottom in both Goals For (Tied 23rd) and Goals Against (27th), the Oilers are in need of some sort of change, whether it be defensively or offensively. In their defence however, they have been ravaged by injuries to their blueline. It is believed GM Kevin Lowe wants to add more offensive punch and it seems possible that he is looking at Glen Murray again or he could potentially deal for Marian Hossa. According to The Fourth Period, the Oilers are dangling Raffi Torres, Jarret Stoll, Shawn Horcoff and Dick Tarnstrom. Also, scouts have been seen at recent Montreal Canadiens games, prompting speculation Lowe and Bob Gainey could be talking trade.

Dallas Stars: Before ex-GM Doug Armstrong was fired, it is believed he had some potential deals in place, which he wanted to make before being let go. Now that Les Jackson and Brett Hull are in charge on an interim basis, they will take time re-evaluate the team and if need be, make a trade. One area where the Stars lack is fire power up front, something that could potentially be fixed with the aquisition of Glen Murray(Not likely if you ask me).

Minnesota Wild: The Wild have granted Wes Walz all the time he needs to figure out his priorities and the Wild will not bother him, looking for a decision. Doug Riseborough said that he has no need to know right now and will let Walz take his time.

Florida Panthers: Olli Jokinen called out his team this week saying that their is a lack of effort on all fronts and that they need to start going into games seeking two points and not worry that they’ll blow it. GM and Coach Jacques Martin has been on the phone constantly lately, looking to improve the team through trade. He is supposedly shopping Mike Van Ryn around in order to bolster the defence. Also, the Panthers have claimed Garth Murray off waivers from Montreal. ABOUT TIME MURRAY’S GONE!

Washington Capitals: Alexander Ovechkin has denied the report that he rejected a contract proposal from the Caps, saying that their hasn’t been any real contract talks between him and the Caps. Steve Eminger is unhappy with his reduction in playing time and has talked to management about it, sparking trade rumours.

Philadelphia Flyers: The report about Jeff Carter being traded for Jeff Carter might actually be true but the Flyers are supposedly seeking one of the Canucks Top Prospects as well as Kesler for just Carter.
