Habs on the Move? And other rumors

Rumor is the Habs are looking to make a splash and are rumored to be talking to the Blackhawks about a deal. The names being tossed around are over-paid defensemen Adrian Aucoin (could also head back to the Islaners) and former Bruin Bryan Smolinski heading to the wind city are unhappy Sergei Samsanov the former Bruin is unhappy in Montreal with limited playing time and has been in the doghouse of head coach Guy Carbneau and life time Hab Craig Rivet. The Habs are also intrested in the two Coyotes who everyone is eying and waiting to see if the Coyotes will deal; Ladislav Nagy and Shane Doan. The Blackhawks have also been asked if Jason Cullinmore was avalible. I am also hearing Samsanov heading west to Ahaheim.
The heavy veternized Florida Panthers could be making several moves with guys like Ed Belfour, Jozef Stumpel, Ville Peltonen, Martin Gelinas, Todd Bertuzzi and Gary Roberts could be on the outs. The Panthers who have struggled this year and would like to get more playing time of the younger guys in the organization. Gelinas and Roberts have no-trade claus in their contracts but there are rumors they would waive them to be dealt to a contender. Bertuzzi who has missed the majority of the year with a back problem could return within the next week. Bertuzzi is getting intrest from the Red Wings, Ducks, Penguins, and Habs. Meanwhile the captian of the Panthers Olli Jokinen would like to stay. Another Panther Nathan Horton is unhappy and could be moved, after requesting a trade last week.
Toronto Maple Leafs have said they are not going to deal Darcy Tucker and/ or Mats Sundin.
Matthew Barnby who has 2,562 penalty minutes over 14 seasons, might not be able to play another game. Barnby is fighting a concussion problem.
Flyers goalie Robert Eshe could go to Tampa Bay if they can't find a better option
Another fromer Bruin could be heading back to Vancouver or the the rival Habs. I still belive he will go back to Vancouver for Jan Builis.
Former Bruin Jason Allision who is still a free agent could be picked up by Atlanta to help there recent problems on their PP.
Nick Boynton could be heading north of the border to the Sens. The Sens might take him because they have lacked tough, physical play in the playoffs.
Jason Blake could be moved off the Islanders after they couldn't come to a contract extension. The former Fighting Souix (North Dakota) stand out could be heading west. Two teams who are very intrested are Vancouver and Anaheim. Both teams have great goaltending and are quick, a system very easy for Balke to purduce in.
