Rumors On A Saturday Night

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

• You gotta give Columbus GM Scott Howson credit: He hasn’t stopped working the phones and trying to unload money instead of firing Arniel. While canning Arniel might satisfy a few people, Howson is still trying to move C Derick Brassard, C Antoine Vermette and G Steve Mason for whatever the organization can get. There’s actually significant interest in Vermette and he may actually get a ticket out of this mess. The Jackets need a goalie because Mason’s play has been miserable.

• What is Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke going to do to stop the bleeding in net? He can’t sit around and let the season slip away and he’s trying to address the club’s need for goaltending. Here are the names of goalies I’m told are available: Jonathan Bernier (Los Angeles), Scott Clemmensen (Florida), Chris Mason (Winnipeg) and Anders Lindback (Nashville). Lindback is on the list because he’s not going to be kept with G Pekka Rinne signed to a seven-year, $49-million contract extension that kicks in next season

more including coaches on the hot seat and who would replace them…
