The Latest Trade Talk

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

From conversations I’ve had with teams over the weekend, there’s a chance the trade season will get going for real after the All-Star break.

One name that could move as early as this week is Tuomo Ruutu, the Carolina Hurricanes forward who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The Canes have taken lots of calls on him and may finally be ready to move him.

One player that won’t be on the move is Ryane Clowe. The San Jose Sharks winger was mentioned in a published rumor this past week, but Sharks GM Doug Wilson vehemently denied it, telling ESPN.com there was no way Clowe was going anywhere. It would not make sense at all to move him in my mind, Clowe is a glue guy on that roster, an important blend of sand paper and skill and the perfect compliment to center Logan Couture.

Wow.  Reading the comment under the article’s link is pretty revealing about Jeff Carter from the Flyers fans - they didn’t like him.  Example:

My dad and I went golfing during the summer and we managed to get ourselves in a group with Bernie Parent. When we asked him about his thoughts on Carter going to Columbus he said, “I give him three months before he gets an STD in Columbus.”
