Pronger & Jagr Talk

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Slap Shots has learned that Lowe asked Florida GM Mike Keenan for 23-year-old defenseman Jay Bouwmeester, 21-year-old center Nathan Horton and the 10th-overall pick in yesterday's draft for Pronger, who will turn 32 in October. We're told that Phoenix, in the mix for Todd Bertuzzi before he went to the Panthers, is pitching hard for Pronger, who has four years remaining at $6.25M on his contract. Senators could enter into the bidding if unable to satisfactorily complete negotiations with both Zdeno Chara and Wade Redden. Maple Leafs are also trying to find a way to somehow make it happen. Somehow, 32 of the 129 members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association who cast ballots for this year's awards - many after the first two games of the playoffs, but more on that later - did not vote for Jagr as one of the two most valuable players in the league. That essentially accounts for a full quarter of the electorate. Perhaps these individuals were all too busy grinding an axe somewhere.

Did And Did Not Happen

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

The Boston Bruins have interviewed former Detroit coach Dave Lewis and former Toronto coach Pat Quinn about their head coaching job. The problem is that the post is still occupied, at least technically, by Mike Sullivan. Is it any wonder players and agents view Boston as a destination of last resort because it has a reputation as a place with little regard for its people? ...The other rumor circulating had the Senators offering Martin Havlat, due to become an unrestricted free agent next summer, for Toskala. Neither deal materialized.
much more talk from Vancouver...

Wrapping Up Tonight

It is still early in Vancouver so some trades could happen tonight. I am heading to dreamworld but some things to remember for the next few days. Kevin Lowe was just on NHL Network and stated they are going to take their time in dealing with Pronger. They are entertaining offers but have some time on their side. Also, a few players must be traded by June 26th or a no-trade clause kicks in, thereby allowing the player to decide if he wants to go to a certain team. I know Martin St. Louis has this clause and a few others I cannot think of right now.
