Trade Talk On A Thursday Night

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

• I can confirm reports that Philadelphia and Toronto have chatted over the past week. The Leafs have long coveted winger James van Riemsdyk. Sources on both teams, however, told ESPN.com Thursday that nothing was close to imminent on any deal. The Flyers’ top priority is to get help on defense, and it just so happens that’s where Toronto has extra bodies. Still, as I reported earlier this week, Philly’s top name on its shopping list is Suter. Tim Gleason of the Hurricanes also interests the Flyers.

• The New York Rangers, we’re hearing, are looking for either a top-six forward who can put the puck in the net and/or a power-play defenseman with a good shot. Like most other contenders, including the likes of Philadelphia and Detroit, the Rangers are keeping a close eye on Nashville and what the Predators are going to do with either Suter (UFA July 1) or Shea Weber (RFA July 1). Needless to say, the Rangers would covet either one of those studs on defense.
