RDS reports that Bob Gainey has met with Alex Kovalev to ask him to stay in Montreal. Is this just Gainey trying to get Kovalev to think about his game or is there a possible trade in the works?

Leafs News

According to Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun not only has Tomas Kaberle waived his no trade clause but apparently his agent has handed the Maple Leafs a list of 10 possible destinations for his client, also Brian Burke has denied a report out of the New York Post the stated Burke saying that the only untouchables on his team are Luke Schenn, John Mitchell and Mikail Grabovski.

Slumping Rangers to Fire Renney soon? is reporting that Tom Renney may pay the price for the recent dismal play of the Rangers. With that being said it is interesting that they also report that “no matter what move is made, it won’t be enough and it might be the wrong one.”

Schneider is onboard, what's next?

Now that Gainey has added Schneider, what will be the next domino to fall? Will it be something really big like LeCavalier, or something more like Jokinen from Phoenix? I have read that Kovalev for Whitney was a possibility, but if I’m Pitts, I’d want a draft pick too because of the age difference. With Schneider on board, which d-man becomes expendable? Could Mtl still be looking at Boumeester? If Florida is really willing to move Weiss and Boumeester, would Gainey want them both? At what price?
