NHL Trade Rumors Take 2

So here we go again....round No. 2

The latest I am reading and hearing is that San Jose Sharks is making a push for Florida Panther’s captain Olli Jokinen; I’m interested to see what San Jose will give. I still believe a defenseman is high on their list priority list, maybe D Rob Blake.

I have heard a rumor that might involve shipping forward Alex Tanguay to Philadelphia Flyers, since Simone Gange is gone for the season, but I’m not too sure who the Calgary Flames would want in return.... more to come on this.

Rumor has the Ottawa Senators are making a push for a goalie for their playoff run. I have read that Ottawa has expressed interest in Colorado Avalanche goaltender Jose Theodore, which would leave me to believe that a goalie is on the move which one Ray Emery or Martin Gerber?

Tampa Bay Lightning is in need of a goaltender also and the Lightnings have centers Brad Richards and Vaclav Prospal, and defenseman Dan Boyle.... either of these trades could benefit the Senators.

Look for the Pittsburgh Penguins to be buyers at the deadline.... as they are one of the few teams with lots of caps space and are ready to make a deep playoff push. I am hearing about a lot of in conference trade rumors.....l don't think it will happen; Mats Sundin to Montreal Canadiens..... yeah right won't happen East to West and vice versa....why trade to a rival.

Much more to come…
