Sourced Trade Rumours
I found a lot of interesting rumours from various other sites and figured I’d pass them on to HTR readers.
First off, the following trade rumours are from this site “http://www.thefourthperiod.com/rumors.html“
Columbus Blue Jackets: GM Scott Howson is believed to be on the look out for a Top Line Centre and Top 4 Defenceman.
Florida Panthers: GM/Coach Jacques Martin has been on the look out for an enforcer to protect his star players. Martin is supposedly looking at Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil and Columbus Blue Jackets enforcer Jody Shelley is thought to also be on Martin’s radar.
Los Angeles Kings: GM Dean Lombardi is believed to be shopping forwards Dustin Brown and Alexander Frolov around in an attempt to obtain a goaltender and to improve the Kings all around defensive core. Dustin Brown rumours may be over as LA has apparently signed him to a 6 year extension according to spectorshockey.net.
Calgary Flames: Forward Alex Tanguay has dismissed the possibility of being traded to Montreal for Alex Kovalev, saying he has no reason to believe the rumours as he is perfectly fine playing alongside Iginla and Conroy. CKAC radio station has suggested the Habs offered Steve Begin, Garth Murray and Guillaume Latendresse for Tanguay. Apparently they don’t know that Murray has no NHL worth and Tanguay has a no trade clause.

Peter Forsberg: Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun has reported that Forsberg has narrowed his choices down to Colorado and Ottawa as being his likely destination. Also, according to Garrioch, Forsberg has set November 15th as his date to come back.
Ottawa Senators: Bryan Murray has made it clear he wants anothe Top 6 Forward to add scoring to his already potent line up. A possible candidate might be the re-aquiring of Marian Hossa. Also, Brian McGratton may be on the trade block.
Washington Capitals: Caps forward Matt Bradley is apparently on the Caps trade block.

Florida Panthers/Toronto Maple Leafs: Apparently Wade Belak is also under Martin’s radar and Martin is supposedly offering Mike Van Ryn in return. If this were to happen, it would benefit both teams needs in toughness and defence.
Phoenix Coyotes: The NY Rangers are actively pursuing defenceman Ed Jovanovski says the Toronto Sun. Boston and Philly have inquired about defenceman Derek Morris as well.
Philadelphia Flyers: If a team is looking for grit and toughness, Denis Gauthier is available and could probably be had for next to nothing.

Florida Panthers: According to Spectors Hockey, the Panthers have signed Jassen Cullimore to a one year contract.
Russian Super League: According to Peter Kula and TSN.ca, Danny Markov has signed a 2 year 4 million dollar deal with Moscow Dynamo. And Darius Kasparaitis has apparently signed with SKA St. Petersburg.
New Jersey Devils: According to the New York Post, Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is contemplating putting D-man Richard Matvichuk on waivers.
Swiss Elite League: Swiss club Zug has apparently signed Andon Carter, Jeff Freisen and Travis Green.
Toronto Maple Leafs: According to Darren Dreger teams have been calling about Alex Steen, Matt Stajan and Wade Belak. According to Dreger, JFJ has no deal on the table, just listening to offers.
I know a lot of these will probably never happen but some of it’s very interesting. Maybe we can look forward to a HUGE deal this year that just defies logic, like Thornton for Primeau, Sturm and Stuart.
