Alright I’ve dug up some more dirt on possible moves today. First Tim Connolly is a healthy scratch in today’s Toronto Marlies game. The scratch was the choice of coach Dallas Eakins but Kevin McGran believes that Torornto Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis is looking to find a NHL home for him. In other Leaf news Frazer McLaren was the only absence in Leafs practice today according to Mark Masters. Still no word as to why but I will keep you posted. Nonis has said that there are no deals close yet so it could be nothing.
According to Bruce Garrioch the Carolina Hurricanes may be looking to move Jussi Jokinen today. He also said that the Hurricanes are one of six teams that have inquired about Ottawa Senators goalie Ben Bishop. Also among those teams are the Philadelphia Flyers, Edmonton Oilers and Tampa Bay Lightning. The Oilers are unlikely to make a move today according to Darren Dreger unless an an unpredictable offer comes in.
Phoenix Coyotes will need to be offered significant pieces if they are going to move Keith Yandle according to Nick Kypreos. David Pagnotta said that if the Flyers are looking to acquire Yandle it will likely take Sean Couturier plus. Pagnotta also said that the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks have looked into Yandle but no other teams have shown interest.
