Rumor Roundup

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

• Sabres owner Terry Pegula was aggressive on the free-agent market last summer by signing C Ville Leino and D Christian Ehrhoff, but he didn’t stop there. Sources say the Sabres tried to acquire C Patrick Kane, a Buffalo native, from the Blackhawks before the NHL draft in June. A cornerstone of the Chicago franchise, Kane, 22, who has a $6.3-million cap hit, wasn’t going anywhere. You can’t fault the Sabres for asking.

• The Isles are going to move a goalie and it won’t be Rick DiPietro. Many believe Evgeni Nabokov will be the odd man out when GM Garth Snow makes a decision. Sources say Nabokov, who is in the final year of his contract, could land in Phoenix. Have a nice Sunday.
