Expect to start hearing that Dany Heatley wants to be traded from the San Jose Sharks, he’s been bumped to the 2nd power play line, and therefore cutting into his ice time. Don’t the Sharks know not to mess with Heatley’s ice time?
The Florida Panthers may be looking to trade C/RW under achieving Nathan Horton. Of course the Leafs will be mentioned as potential suitors for Horton, as he’s the type of player Burke likes. Horton is still only 24-25 years old and makes around $4 million. The price to acquire him will most likely be high due to his upside.
Elliot Freedman mentioned on Saturday’s hotstove that Marc Savard will be on the Leafs radar this off-season if he’s not re-signed by the Bruins. This is a rumor that will most likely linger all season long, or until he re-signs.
The Edmonton Oilers might be looking to trade Andrew Cogliano for a big centerman.
Canadiens GM, Bob Gainey, has been receiving calls regarding goalie Jaroslav Halak. With Carey Price’s play dating back to last season, it might be hard to trade away Halak.
