1) These are a few of the potential deals we're hearing this morning. As we mentioned several times in the past few weeks the Boston Bruins remain an enigma. The biggest of course is Brad Stuart. Acquired in the amazing stupid Joe Thornton deal last fall. Our sources in Boston tell us the B's are eager to unload Stuart and if possible package him with Primeau.
2) The destination? Well, as of this morning our source tells us that Darryl Sutter has been hot after Stuart. Apparently Sutter isn't all that happy with the current make up of his squad and wants to add some offense. What would the Flames offer up? We're told that Andrew Ference possibly another player, probably a 3rd line forward or a draft pick. We're told this one could be done BEFORE the deadline!
3) In other news we're told that the Islanders are getting a bit frustrated with impending free agent forward Jason Blake. Evidently the diminutive forward is being adamant about a 5 year deal. The money is probably negotiable as far as the Islanders are concerned. Blake wants about 4 mil/year. BUT the Isles do NOT want to go beyond 3 years. That could be the deal breaker, and this all could come to a head before the deadline.
As always keep it here for all the latest!
