Rumor Mill

I haven't had one in a long time, time to catch up on the latest buzz going around.

-The Chicago Blackhawks are interested in acquiring a winger after Martin Havlat went down with injury and teams have inquired about defenseman Seabrook, but according to their GM he is not on the block.

-Peter Forsberg could be traded soon and San Jose, Nashville and Colorado seem to be the front runners to land him. Recent reports state that the Flyers WILL NOT trade him though.

-Oilers Ryan Smyth may test the UFA market next seasons and Oilers GM Kevin Lowe will have to decide to resign Smyth or Petr Sykora, who has been ripping it up as of late.

-The Phoenix Coyotes are in a deep hunt for goaltending and are willing to part ways with Nick Boynton and possibly Shane Doan. They will not trade Ed Jovanovski, and earlier this month had a deal in place for Evgeni Nabakov, but he used his no trade clause to block the deal.

-The Chicago Blackhawks are shopping Nikolai Khabibulan, and the Lightning have interest.

-The Lightning's GM has stated a change is needed to shake the team out of its early season funk. Expect names like Lecalvier, Prospal, Richards, St. Louis and Denis to pop up. It is unlikely that Lecalvier, Richards, or St. Louis is moved though.

-Janne Niiminaa of the Montreal Canadiens is on the block after moving out of the depth chart on the blueline. He is officially on the block and teams are already showing interest.

-Eklund is reporting that the Coyotes are interested in Lightning goalie Marc Denis.

Coyotes are also rumored to be willing to move Nagy. They're in the hunt for a goalie from the Sharks, the ducks, and Biron. I think you will see Foresberg dealt it doesn't make scene for Philly to keep him he is a UFA end of this year and can help any team in the NHL. I think you will see Foresberg end up in Nashville for prospects or the long shot deal is to Detroit for Datsyk but that rumor was thorwn out but Detroit's GM.

Also, Brad Stuart's name is a hot topic in Edmonton. Sports writers think that Stuart is the perfect fit for their blueline. The name of Raffi Torres pop up a a potential trade bait...
