Focusing On Antoine Vermette

from Darren Dreger of the Dreger Report,

Antoine Vermette's name remains at the top of TSN's Trade Bait board and will likely remain there until the 32-year-old centre is finally traded.

Vermette has spent much of the season as fodder for ongoing trade speculation, but doesn't seem phased by the daily questioning or uncertainty of his playing future. He's a pro and has wisely avoided the temptation of social media, but he's constantly reminded of the strong possibility of being traded for the third time in his career.

"It comes from people around you, and TSN does a good job of keeping me updated, he told The Dreger Report on Thursday. "But, I'm not focusing on the rumours. It's just part of the situation.  

"Being from Canada, I know how passionate fans are. I get that and I just try and deal with it as best I can."

continued plus of course some Leafs talk....

Nothing against Vermette but why would Detroit be a team that needs him. Dreger is going off the board!  Bob MacKenzie is the only one with accuracy and maybe LeBrun.
