NHL Trade Rumors: Say Hello To Matt Moulson

NHL Trade Rumors can be found all over the place. It seems like the Buffalo Sabres are having a fire sale if the price is right. For about a month now, Matt Moulson has drawn interest, with reports indicating as many as 12 teams are in the market for his services.

Moulson came to the Sabres via a trade, and it seems like he will be leaving the Sabres via a trade. There is a market for the 30-year-old forward. Moulson is a great rental player, and whoever make the trade for him would be wise to try to sign him to an extension. The Sabres are reported to be looking for a first and a prospect for Moulson.

Currently Moulson is tied for fourth on the Sabres in points with 29 in 44 games (he also has nine points in 11 games with the New York Islanders), but he sits at a minus-8. Buffalo is sitting in a good spot when it comes to Moulson. If they are unable to find him a new home, there is the chance they attempt to re-sign him.

This kind of widespread interest, while not surprising, still must have Tim Murray feeling pretty good about his situation. By having so many potential suitors, Murray has a lot of leverage to try to get the best deal that he can for Moulson. CBS Sports

Teams rumored to be in market for Moulson are the Ottawa Senators, Anaheim Ducks, Phoenix Coyotes, New Jersey Devils and Boston Bruins. My front-runner is the Los Angeles Kings; they need the added scoring if they hope to make a run out west.

No matter what, Moulson still has a few good years left in him. However, his place in Buffalo history will be the draft pick and prospects the Sabres get in return for moving him.
