Draft Day Rumor Hits 2


There was word that Subban was back on the block and talks heated up with Edmonton. It appears those talks have slowed as Tambellini just told Pierre LeBrun that he doubts he'll move the pick. Seems as though the return Montreal wanted was a bit too much and that's understandable from a Montreal point of view.


There was a report that Igor Larionov was upset when Jason Gregor asked him to join his show. "I don't talk to Edmonton and Edmonton doesn't talk to me." There was some immediate backlash that this meant Edmonton wasn't going to draft Yakupov. We've also heard now, Edmonton hasn't talked to Ryan Murray's agent either in weeks and that Edmonton did in fact contact Newport Sports.

Roster Moves

Edmonton is looking to move it's second round pick and a roster player to improve their blue-line. Word is Hemsky, but Edmonton also willing to part with Jones, Belanger, Eager and Omark. When names like Smid and Petry come up, it's a non-started for the Oilers.

Rick Nash

Looks like Columbus couldn't find a trade partner and is going to wait until after July 1st and see where Parise goes feeling the market will warm up.

Luongo to Toronto Close

The only trade that looks not only possible but probable is Luongo to Toronto. Burke and Gillis have been seen having long talks. What appear to be more than just friendly chatter.

We'll see if something actually gets done.
