    and a few rumours...

    Post by Flo The Action on Fri Dec 11, 2009 7:29 am

    a few rumours from espn i thought might be worthy of discussion as theysound somewhat plausible.
    enjoy:

    Phaneuf to the tri-state area?
    (Stud blueliner could be getting closer to Avery.)

    The market for Lehtonen
    (The Atlanta Thrashers will likely trade a goalie for depth.)

    Halak to Blues possible
    (One prominent voice says Halak should be traded soon.)

    Nylander picked up soon?



    i like the one with lethonen. this guy should have high value but the string of injuries he's had over the years have made him such a weak piece.

    halak is gonna be traded, just a matter of when... before the trade deadline for sure.

    I could see the Flyers making a move for Lehtonen. With health and team buy-in to Laviolette's system, he could be a key to a turn around in Philly.

    Phaneuf to where though? New Jersey? What can they offer that wouldn't kill their team depth or empty their prospect cabinet? The Rangers? Unless they are moving Del Zotto back the other way, I don't see Calgary making the move. The Islanders? Maybe. Although I'm not sure they want to make a splash just yet.

    Weird rumour that one. Could definitely see Montreal making a push with Halak + the Kostitsyns + Subban going the other way.

    Assuming he can stay healthy. He's only slightly more reliable than DiPietro :x

    I don't understand this Halak rumour. Mason and Conklin are playing fine in STL. Philly seems like a more likely target.

    Personally, I don't think he can. He's shown flashes, like when he posted 5 shutouts in row or something ridiculous like that, but he's a career backup for a reason.

    Yeah, I'm not sure he can do 6 weeks of being a number one. He's the perfect back up though, he's awesome.

    Will Phaneuf really be traded? There's a lot of rumours that he's a problem in that locker room and that it's still not getting better even though Sutter is there. But really? And what does NJ have to offer? Elias?

    Actually, Elias is an interesting thought in a one-for-one.

    Elias, Zajac, some Swedish forward prospects, I guess.

    Boucher was pretty good last night. Like Elliott, he'll keep his team in the game by and large. They'll have a few gems and a few turkeys.

    I honestly hate when I read any rumors and the mention of the Rangers... seriously, where does this team get its cap space from? Unless they are going to get rid of Dr. Ury and Redden, they cannot do anything. Period.

    NJ probably is mentioned because they will want to bring back a guy that will slightly resemble anything close to Scott Stevens.

    Zajac? I can't see them trading a bonafide core forward like that. Bergfors? I might think about him +, but the perfect fit is Elias. Elias for Phaneuf - sounds pretty fair and pretty nice.

    Elias is getting up there so I believe the Devils would have to add a little bit to get Phaneuf like Gohan said...
