Trader Cliff Up To Something!


Since July 1 there have been non stop rumors of a "HOMERUN" trade by Cliff Fletcher and now that Bryan McCabe has seemingly agreed to waive things should heat up. You have to look back on the many trades that Cliff is famous for to really get a feel of what this man is capable of.

Lets look here we have the Doug Gilmour trade and then the very criticized Clark for Sundin trade. This is just the tip of the iceberg what is this man really capable of..............................????

Lets look at some of the rumors that are out there that have been bantered about on the internet and on TV.

Patrick Marleau: Lots of these last year and this summer could this be something that is considered

Jay Bouwmeester: Something we have been working on all summer is the Bouwmeester watch this could still be out there.

Jussi Jokinnen and Jeff Halpern: This rumor still hasn't died but with the current speculation of there being no trade to begin with its hard to see it going down.

There are many options and if Cliff puts the right deal on that table there may be a substantial move in the works. Fletcher is famous for this so lets wait and see.

McCabe rumors false

I would like to appologize I was searching the net and talking to some people and the Lightning although rumored to be interested are not. The source I got the info from had said the he talked to "ERLENDSON" about this and he said they still did.

So I don't know what to believe that was also a typo about the PK specialist I meant to say PP specialist.

Anyways I do appologize for the mix up.

However there is a list with suspected teams to be on there:

NY Rangers
NY Islanders

Those are the 2 major ones we all know. What do you think the other will be?

HOPE TO HAVE A GOOD TURN OUT.

Tampa has interest in McCabe


Even though it was stated that they didn't have interest it now seems they do. According to Eric Endersson I don't know if thats the correct way to spell his name as this is the 1st time I have ever talked to him believes that the Lightning have a package as previously mentioned on HB's (Hockeybums) for McCabe in place should McCabe pick them as a prefered destination when he hands the list of teams to Fletcher at the end of the month. It is rumored teams like the Rangers and Islanders will definitely be on the list with maybe San Jose and LA being there as well.


Sources Take: Like I've said before Florida and Tampa have the best offers on the table for the Leafs with Jokinnen from Tampa and as rumored Bouwmeester from Florida. Today though there is a rumor that he could choose Philadelphia in a package that could see someone like Upshall or Hartnell come to T.O. I can't wait to see that list of teams at the end of the month. Despite what people say McCabe does have some value and could get a substantial return from the right team looking for a PK specialist (I.E. Philadelphia)

Juicy Blues Rumour, Oh And Intro!



Hello good chaps! I'm Ade, a St. Louis rumour guy. Like I'll hunt down rumours till' 4 in the morning at times just for other fans. So I've got a heart and that's all you need! I'll also have very good email conversations with J.R. (Blues Beat Writer) quite a bit and I'll always keep you informed on what I learn from those chats! So I'm definitely a Blues super fan and if anyone says differently I'll whack em'!

Now I have to tell you about a deal that I have learned about from a credible source. The deal would send Afinogenov and a late draft pick or prospect to St. Louis for Lee Stempniak, Marek Schwarz & a 4th round pick to Buffalo. This deal is something that they're highly consdering but with St. Louis wanting a prospect or late draft pick along with Maxim the deal may end up going down around Trade Deadline Day.

So that's all I can you for now but please, if you have any questions about the Blues. If it's rumours, prospects or anything else Blues related, email me at bluesrumourdude@live.com as I'd rather answerr questions their insteads of the comments section.

Thanks, Ade.
