NHL Trade Rumor: Three-Way Deal Between Kings, Hawks and Sens Coming?

Greg CaggianoSenior Writer IJuly 16, 2008

In this rumor I learned from Sports Net Canada, it is now a serious possibility that a three-way trade could be coming in the next few days or maybe even this afternoon.

In the report, it is suggested that the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks, and Ottawa Senators are involved in the deal, and the trade would greatly improve each team.

The rumor suggests that the Blackhawks would send goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin and defenseman Cam Barker or Brent Seabrook to the Ottawa Senators.

The Senators would then send Andrej Mezaros and goaltender Martin Gerber to the Kings while the Blackhawks would get Anze Kopitar from Los Angeles.

This could very well be the blockbuster trade of the year if it comes through. The Blackhawks would add another young superstar to their already deep talent pool while both Los Angeles and Ottawa improve their goal tending.
