Morning Rumors

Here are some morning rumors for you all..and for those who don't think I have sources and think what I'm posting is useless garbage, well it's simple, just don't read it. I do have my sources, i completed a course in Sports Management and built some good connections with people in the business...anyways, onto the rumors..

-Hearing the name of Kubina fly around this morning. One of my most reliable sources has told me this morning that the Leafs have been and are getting tons of calls and offers for Kubina but the Leafs are waiting for that specific type of player that they are looking for. He went on to say the latest he's heard is that the Lightning are interested in bringing him back and are offering up Jussi Jokinen. I will have more on Kubina throughout the day, his case is getting VERY hot.

-Got confirmation this morning from someone out West that the Canucks are packaging up a prospect and a pick to send to the Flyers in return for Scottie Upshall. The Nucks are looking for secondary scoring help and he would fit the bill. It would also put the Flyers below the cap.

-The Ducks are really trying to get rid of Schneider's salary. I am hearing a few teams are interested in his services including Buffalo, Tampa Bay and yes, Detroit!

-A source heard news last night concerning Yanic Perreault. He told me the Thrashers and Kings are interested but that he may not sign until the start of training camp.

-The poster "the source" posted this morning that the Leafs, Bruins and Habs were in on the race to land Bouwmeester. I have heard the same thing. Although, this morning I heard that the Kings still had the the better package on the table. Within the last hour, there are some rumblings going around that the Habs have offered up a MAJOR package to lure J-BO to Montreal. I was also told the Habs will not be adding salary with this move, still leaving room for Sundin. I am going to Montreal this afternoon and i will look into it. But i am told this is not the end of it as teams are going heard over heels to get this guy.

MONTREAL??????????????????????????????????????????????

Yes, Montreal!

Cas and Dana Masiak said...

Too...many...centers...to add a specialist for the Thrash.

I doubt the Canucks are looking at Upshall. They already have Bernier who is essentially the same player with less fire, and they have Pyatt who is bigger and faster and has scored more goals.

Have you heard what the Kings are offering for Bouwmeester?

RenD said...

Last name i heard from the Kings was Jack Johnson

vince m said...

have you heard what Boston was offering?

I know they want Lucic but that will not happen.

I heard Habs offered, Hamrlik, Higgins and first draft pic in 2010..stay tunned for more...

Scotty said...

anonymous we all know your lying

RenD said...

Bruins are reportedly offering something along the lines of David Krejci, Andrew Alberts, a prospect and a high draft pick. I have also heard the name of Kessel in the mix but i do not think the Bruins will let go of him.

I can honestly tell you, the Habs are not offering Hamrlik.

Scotty said...

OMG could you imagine our top 4 d

Markov-Komi
Hamrlik-Bouwmeester

TRUTHFULLY WHY BOUWMEESTER THOUGH?

I find he plays slow. WHAT ARE THE HABS OFFERING??? Higgins??

vince m said...

Personally I would love Bouwmeester. He is young, moves the puck well, can hit. He seems like his play is the typical Bruins D-man. I would love to see Bouwmeester on the power play with Chara.

Sweet. Hope the Bruins are able to pull it off.

Just don't get rid of Kessel.

RenD said...

The top 4 would be crazy indeed. I haven't really heard who the Habs are offering, i will be in Montreal in about an hour to look into it a bit more. I did hear that they were offering what seems to be a roster player, 2 D prospects and a 1st. They told me the first would be in 2010.

Also, another team just hopped into the race, i have yet to find out which team. I think it might be Nashville, but that is just my guess.

Scotty said...

trade Dandenault lol and like 2 BAD D PROSPECTS

Anonymous said...

why would the habs trade higgins?

RenD said...

I cannot see Bob Gainey trade Higgins. IMO he is the next Habs captain. Well either him or Komisarek.

RenD said...

I am in Montreal right now, i will look into some stuff here and i'll post some news as soon as i hear it.

vince m said...

How about a nice package from Boston? Something like Scheafer, Alberts, 1 prospect and a pick?

Hell maybe even Axe.

I think he would fit in nicely in Black and Gold.

RenD said...

the package you just suggested IMO is worse than the rumored package that i posted..IMO Krejci has ALOT more value than Schaefer. I have not been able to dig out any new news as of yet. Ill try to get some news before the chat later this evening.

Jack Johnson??? Really? This seems somewhat lateral to me. They both are due for contracts next summer, and neither strike me as guys who will let the Kings sign them for bottom dollar (as is the Kings wont).
