Penguins close to blockbuster trade ??

UPDATE 9:40 ET:  Add the Denver Post onto this chain.

Well, it is getting close to that time, isn’t it.

TheFourthPeriod.com reports that the Colorado Avalanche may be close to a multi-player trade, with the Bruins and Penguins rumored as possible trading partners.

TFP mentions that the Pens are interested in winger Milan Hejduk and may be willing to part with either Ryan Whitney or Jordan Staal as part of the deal.

Now, if that’s not enough, we also have a very unconfirmed, but very interesting and possibly very related post on one of the main Penguins message boards tonight.

On the message board letsgopens.com, a user named “tmanhockey31” posted the following rumored deal.  Again, no confirmation nor credibilty, but once you read TFP’s report above, it may have some veracity.  Here’s what is said.

L.A. gets: Jordan Staal (PIT), Tyler Kennedy (PIT), Miroslav Satan (PIT), 5th round pick (COL)

Colorado gets: Ryan Whitney (PIT), 3rd round pick (PIT), 4th round pick (LA)

Pittsburgh gets: Wojtek Wolski (COL), Chris Stewart (COL), Alexander Frolov (LA), 2nd round pick (LA)

I have to repeat, who the hell knows if this is completely made up or not.  As everyone knows at this time of year, rumors are flying from all directions.

But, I thought that I’d show you both sets of rumors, one from a respectable hockey site, and one out of the blue, and see where, if anywhere, it ends up.
