from Tom Reed of Puck-rakers,
Raffi Torres and Milan Jurcina, a pair of UFAs, continue to attract serious interest. In the case of Torres, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Boston are three of the teams we keep hearing.
The Bruins have three second-round picks in the upcoming draft so they shouldn’t have trouble meeting the Jackets’ believed asking price. It’s thought that the Bruins also have interest in Anaheim’s Teemu Selanne, another UFA, among others. Torres played for Boston coach Claude Julien in the AHL with Hamilton in the 2002-03 season.
Pittsburgh is said to still have interest despite dealing their second-round pick to Florida for Jordan Leopold. They are looking for a rugged winger with a scorer’s touch to put on a line with Evgeni Malkin. Would the Penguins be willing to part with offensive defenseman Alex Goligoski if the Jackets sweetened the pot?
