Here are your trade rumors for November 15:

Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is reportedly shopping forward Evander Kane, and a rumor is floating around involving a deal for the former fourth overall pick and Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens.

Just seven months after the Blue Jackets acquired him, Marian Gaborik is reportedly on the trading block, as the struggling Jackets don’t think he is producing enough to justify his $7.5 million cap hit

The Anaheim Duck have an interesting goaltending situation. They have two starting goaltenders in Jonas Hiller and Viktor Fasth. They also have three youngsters waiting in the weeds in Frederick Anderson, John Gibson, and Igor Bobkov. All three of these prospects have the potential to be starting goalies in the NHL. Hiller is in the last year of his contract and the Ducks are shopping him around. The Islanders are reportedly interested in the Swiss net minder.

Tuomo Ruutu may not be wearing a Hurricanes sweater much longer, according to reports. The Tampa Bay Lightning are reportedly interested in the hard-hitting Ruutu, and could obviously use another forward after losing Steven Stamkos for 3-6 months.

A lot of talk has been swirling around Craig MacTavish and the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers are shopping their first round pick for this year, and are in talks with the Flyers regarding defensemen Brayden Coburn and Luke Schenn. At this past draft, the Oilers offered two 2nd round picks for Coburn, but were turned down.
