from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
“Basically, what I’ve said (to other teams) is just tell me what you’re willing to do, I’ll talk to you and we’ll go from there and we’ll make a decision one way or another. But, I can’t say I’m overly optimistic now.”
League sources say the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers both remain interested, but neither side is close to deal. It’s believed if the Senators are going to make a deal with San Jose, they want Joe Thornton in return.
The Sharks don’t want to move Thornton and have never offered centre Patrick Marleau, either. Another league executive told Sun Media yesterday that “discussions are quiet on the San Jose front and they might resume during training camp.”

As for the Hawks, rumors started Friday and into Saturday that they might be interested in trading for disgruntled Ottawa Senators winger Dany Heatley.
So far this is only a rumor, and it hasn’t been reported anywhere. Funny, I sat near GM Stan Bowman at Friday’s White Sox game and he was working his Blackberry most of the night. Maybe it was just typical GM stuff.
