Rumors from around the NHL

- Nothing more on the Marco Sturm situation, although it does look like he will remain a Bruin, extension or no extension.

- The San Jose Sharks are trying to acquire a top notch defenseman. They have their eyes on Sheldon Souray. If Souray falls through look for them to pursue Rob Blake.

- The St. Louis Blues could have a completely different team next season. Keith Tkachuk and Bill Guerin are their two most attractive pieces. Both have no trade clauses, but have drawn interest from many teams. Tkachuk has had interest from Atlanta, Montreal, Pittsburgh, Toronto and Anaheim. Guerin, the former Bruin, has drawn interest from Toronto, Detroit, San Jose, Anaheim and Montreal.

- Another Blue, Eric Brewer, has drawn interest from almost any team seeking a defensman. However, it is unlikely he will get traded since St. Louis is trying hard to resign him to an extension

- Other Blues on the block are Manny Legace and Radek Dvorak. Legace could wind up in Montreal, since they are without Christobal Huet for the season. Montreal also has interest in Brian Boucher and Mathieu Garon of the Kings.

- The Tampa Bay Lightining have inquired about defensemen Brian Berard of the Blue Jackets and Brent Sopel of the Kings. Although Berard looks like he may be headed to Atlanta.

- Marty Lapointe may be heading back to his former team. No, not the Bruins, but the Red Wings. They are trying to boost their forward position. Lapointe had his greatest years in Detroit and could land their, if the Wings lose out on Guerin.

- The Carolina Hurricanes will make a move. They have plenty of cap space and are looking to add a veteran forward for their playoff run. Geoff Sanderson of the Flyers will probably land in Carolina. Look for them to move one of their defensemen.
