NHL Buzz: Tuesday, June 29th
With NHL free agency just a few days away, here are some rumors on who may be going where.
According to ESPN.com, the Blues, Capitals, and Penguins are all possible destinations for Paul Martin, however, if the Maple Leafs move Tomas Kaberle for a top six forward, Martin might draw the eye of Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke.
According to Atlanta Journal Constitution writer Chris Vivlamore, defenseman Pavel Kubina has said that he won't take a hometown discount to stay in Atlanta. But the Thrashers offered contract extensions to Max Afinogenov and Colby Armstrong—both of them declined.
Multiple sources say Canucks D Kevin Bieksa will likely be on the move if Vancouver can get their hands on another defenseman such as Dan Hamhuis or Paul Martin.
For those of you that don't know, Bruins F Marc Savard has said he will waive his NTC (no trade clause) to go to Toronto or Ottawa, however, Ottawa does not have the cap space to acquire him so Toronto appears more likely.
I believe the Maple Leafs will move Tomas Kaberle. Right now there are about 10 teams interested and only a few good puck-moving defenseman in this free agent class. So once they are gone, the seven teams remaining will all be knocking on the Maple Leafs' door.
This concludes today's edition of NHL Buzz, enjoy!
