The Trade Talk Continues

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

- All these months later and Roberto Luongo is still a Vancouver Canuck. Teams have been asking about him when calling Vancouver over the last little while -- perhaps just as much out of curiosity -- but teams are also asking about Cory Schneider. It’s highly unlikely the Canucks move Schneider, even though the offers would be more substantive for him than Luongo. It’s sounding more and more like the Luongo situation will have to wait until the offseason to iron itself out. 

-As one team executive told me recently, just about anyone is available in Buffalo, but one name that’s out there a ton is defenseman Jordan Leopold. He’s a UFA after the season, so it makes sense the Sabres would dump him. 

- It’s a big week for the future of Mark Streit, who is slated for UFA status after the season. His agent, Pat Brisson, is slated to talk again with the Islanders about an extension this week. Would the Islanders move him if he doesn’t sign? They didn’t last year with P.A. Parenteau, even though he was UFA.

more names mentioned, some we've read about before...
