Numerous Names Mentioned

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

A source told me Friday morning that there was finally traction on the Luongo front but still nothing imminent. And my understanding is that the Panthers and Canucks have kept alive a dialogue. It’s the deal that makes the most sense, especially as I pointed out yesterday if Jose Theodore is willing to move his no-trade clause to go to Vancouver. Luongo wants to be a Panther again, Florida can use the upgrade in goal and the Canucks can divest itself of the $53.3 million left on Luongo’s deal, although certainly for this trade ever to happen, player contracts would have to go the other way as well to make it financially viable for the Panthers.

On the Yandle front, the Coyotes would need a home-run deal. They’re not shopping him. They’re listening. Bobby Ryan? That’s going to be oh-so intriguing. The Ducks could really gum up the works on Columbus by offering up a star winger with a way more cap-friendly contract compared to Nash’s. I believe Anaheim listens long and hard and ultimately deals him.

read on and Scott Burnside also participates with name players and many teams being mentioned…

LEBRUN: ....In the end, Detroit has another avenue: wait it out until the new CBA is signed, sealed and delivered. Several teams I’ve spoken with over the past few weeks believe there will be bargains to be had on good players come September, October or November—whenever there’s a new CBA—because some overspending teams will have miscalculated and will need to get rid of players to get under the new cap. At least half a dozen teams I know of are waiting for this. Detroit could benefit from that as well.

Never, ever considered that angle before.

Yep. More good work cheapskate Holland. Wings have 15 effin million to spend, but hey, let us go blue light special shopping. Pathetic. Cant wait to see what other 35+ year old the wings bring in.

Get Ryan, gawd da@mnit!

Why are the quacks shopping Ryan anyway? If he’s so great and we (along with many other teams) want him, why do they want to trade him?
