Darren Dreger had a lot to say, let’s start with his talks about the Toronto Maple Leafs. According to him the Leafs have not been talking to the Vancouver Canucks about Roberto Luongo or anyone else. He also said that the Leafs might inquire about Miikka Kiprusoff if the Calgary Flames make him available, as they would still like to add a veteran goalie. However there is only interest in Kiprusoff, which doesn’t mean that trade talks or offers have been made.
Dreger also had some speculation about the Philadelphia Flyers. He said that Danny Briere could possibly go to the Montreal Canadiens for a draft pick but only if he is healthy and willing to waive his no-trade clause. He also reported that the Flyers could do a trade with the Anaheim Ducks where they would swap Sean Couturier for Bobby Ryan. Spector’s Hockey said however that this move will likely not happen until the off-season.
According to Joe Haggerty of CSN the Boston Bruins could be looking into other top six forwards if the asking price for Jarome Iginla is too high. He mentioned the names Jaromir Jagr and Martin St. Louis.
Pierre LeBrun of ESPN has also done a lot of speculating. According to him the Dallas Stars have been in talks with the Ottawa Senators about Derek Roy but the price might be too high for the Senators. LeBrun also reported that teams have been asking the Vancouver Canucks not only about Roberto Luongo but also Cory Schneider. Although the Canucks could get more for Schneider they are not likely to move him. Any trade for them won’t come until the end of the season.
