NHL Buzz: Friday, July 16th

Todd CordellCorrespondent IJuly 16, 2010

There are a lot of rumors flying around right now; here is what I am hearing.

The Canadiens and Carey Price are in talks but aren't close yet. It is believed that Price is looking for $3.5-$4 million a year. In my opinion, I think Price is asking a bit much as he is asking Jaroslav Halak-type money, when simply he is not as good.

Mike Modano's three options are Minnesota, Detroit, and San Jose. I think he would be a good fit in all three places, but if he wants to win he shouldn't go to Minnesota.

Denis Grebeshkov is generating some interest from several teams; it is believed the Sabres, Blue Jackets, and Sharks are among them. I personally think he would be a great fit in the high-tempo Sabres offense.

Rumor has it the Ducks are among the teams interested in Kevin Bieksa. It makes sense as they need some help on defense, and Bieksa is good on both sides of the ice.

According to the Boston Herald Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli admitted the trade market has dried up a bit but suggests once Kovalchuk signs it will pick up.

As of right now the Sharks, Sabres, and Blue Jackets appear to have the most interest in Tomas Kaberle.

This concludes today's edition of NHL Buzz, enjoy!
