Will moves happen tomorrow?


Bob Mckenzie from TSN was quoted on OTR today as saying that he thinks that the leafs will move Pavel Kubina to the San Jose Sharks tomorrow sealing a deal that could have gone down at the trade deadline if it were not for Kubina using his NTC to stop the deal from going down.

The deal was said to be fore Kyle Mclaren. It's unknown whether the deal would stay the same or if something else would be involved but my guess is that it may be the same exact deal.

As for other leaf Rumors The silver fox has shot down any moves for over the hill high priced free agents saying that any players he pick up will be under the age of 30 so Patrick Marleau is out of the question not so much because of age but because of the fact that his NTC kicks in and his salary raises as well.

McKenzie has stated that Fletcher would like to move up in the Draft to about the 5th spot leading to speculation that McCabe could be involved in a trade to secure that 5th spot. Bob has stated that the Leafs would like a shot at either drafting Alex Pietrangelo or Luke Schenn.

It has been said the the Islanders want to draft Nikita Filatov so if they believe that he will go lower then 5 they could trade down.

In other news there are rumors swirling that Malkin may be traded to L.A for their 2nd pick in the draft. I think that Brian Murray best summed up the chances of Malkin being moved when he said that he called Ray Shero to see if he could be part of any deal for Malkin and Shero laughed in his face.

Mckenzie has also stated that he believes that besides Kubina that Alex Tanguay, Erik Cole, and Joni Pitkanen may be on the move on Friday along with the rights to Brian Campbell that are apparently up for grabs. Brian Murray was said to have tried to trade the negotiating rights of Wade Redden but found no takers.

It will be fun to see what happens tomorrow I know I will be watching
