Serious Analysis Of Central Division Moves

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

1354:  Oooh. Intrigue in Denver.  George Malik caught this just as Dive apologist Adrian Dater put it on his blog at the Denver Post.

Just learned from a reliable source that Peter Forsberg, along with his parents, are in Denver right now and that Forsberg will “make an announcement” at the Avs-Wings game tonight.
That announcement is expected to be that he will officially retire from the NHL.

A few minutes later?  Poof.

Dater/All Things Dive

Sorry for the false alarm folks. No Forsberg retirement announcement here tonight. While a retirement is likely to be official at some point soon, it won’t be tonight at the Avs-Wings game.

Too bad. Would have been nice.

The Connolly Talks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

There has been talk this morning the Sabres are still negotiating a new contract for Tim Connolly.  Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News feels he will be moved…

My previous suggestion that the Sabres re-sign him was based on him returning at the right price and having a healthy lineup around him get into the playoffs. Apparently, he doesn’t want to come back for less. The banged-up Sabres could miss the postseason even if they keep him, so why keep him?

Columbus and Vancouver are interested in Connolly, but Chicago appears to have an inside track. The Blackhawks are looking for a No. 2 center and would be willing to include defenseman James Wisniewski in a package with the Sabres. The two teams were talking Tuesday.

added 9:39am, via Darren Dreger of TSN,

Sources tell TSN the Buffalo Sabres have tabled a two-year contract extension at better than $4 million per season to keep forward Tim Connolly in Buffalo.

Although the offer is considered to be strong, it may not be quite good enough to get the deal done without further negotiations.

Early Morning Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

A Panthers source said at 9 a.m. ET it was “too early to tell” whether Bouwmeester (UFA July 1) would be moved. In other words, they’re still waiting for the best offers.

Tough call for Panthers GM Jacques Martin.

On Long Island, GM Garth Snow is giving one last try to complete a Bill Guerin trade that he’s been working on since Saturday. A source close to the situation said if the deal doesn’t go through soon today, Snow will move on to a Plan B.

In Chicago, the Blackhawks are close to acquiring a forward, ESPN.com’s Scott Burnside tells us.

added 9:15am, Don’t forget to check out Spector;s blog throughout the day.  Lyle Richardson provides “common sense” analysis to all the trades being talked about.

added 9:20am, Kevin Allen of USA TODAY has a deadline day blog going which will be updated all day long.
