NHL Buzz: Monday, July 12

There is a lot of rumors floating around right now, here are the latest.

According to multiple reports, Ilya Kovalchuk is going to LA to meet with Kings GM Dean Lombardi. However, Dean has said it is just a regular meeting like with any other UFA and that no deal is even close.

Darren Dreger reported via twitter that Ducks GM Bob Murray has said that Bobby Ryan will not be traded.

It was reported earlier that the Blackhawks will match the offer sheet made on defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, but the days are passing and the Blackhawks are still yet to match the offer.

Simon Gagne's name is in play...big time. Leafs, Kings, and Rangers appear the most interested, but if the Devils don't get Kovalchuk they could contact the Flyers as well.

If Mike Modano wants to play again this year he will have options: the Ducks, Wild, Red Wings and Sharks have all contacted him.

If the Blackhawks lose Antti Niemi to an offer sheet, Marty Turco will be their first option.

This concludes today's edition of NHL Buzz. However, I will be updating it with more rumors throughout the day so stay tuned!
