The Boston Globe is reporting that Glen Murray is on the trading block and the Bruins want a proven goal scorer and young prospect in return. The Buzzontheburgh has learned that Ray Shero did in fact come close to pulling off a deal for center iceman Brad Boyes this summer. When the Bruins signed Marc Savard in the early goings of free agency, Shero looked into the availability of Boyes. An offer of Ryan Malone and Eric Christensen was declined and the Bruins countered with Malone and Welch which was declined by Shero. What makes that proposed deal in the summer interesting, is an hockey insider was on the show of Espn radio WAMG-AM 890 of Boston yesterday afternoon and reported that Bruins have received a call from Pittsburgh regarding the availability of Glen Murray. It is believed the Penguins may counter with the same kind of offer and this time may include Welch to bring in the proven winger. Stay tuned
The Buzzontheburgh’s Quick Hits
Yanic Perreault’s name is popping up in the headlines. Over the past few days, rumors have surfaced that the Senators, Penguins and Panthers have showed interest in the free-agent faceoff specialist. Ottawa is believed to be the front runner for landing Perreault. Is Alexander Ovechkin hiding a injury? The Russian newspaper Sports Express thinks so as they reported this past weekend that Ovechkin, the NHL’s rookie of the year last season, has been playing hurt. On Monday, Washington Capitals GM George McPhee denied the reports. “Not true,” McPhee was quoted as saying in The Washington Times. The Phoenix Coyotes are off to a horrid start but management is denying reports that starting goaltender Cutis Jospeph is on the trading block. If things don’t turn around Cujo will be moved to a contender.
The Steelers – Falcons game will not even be close. Tiki Barber had a field day against the Falcons last week and expect Willie Parker to have the same impact. The Mike Vick experience will be at a stand still. Dick Lebeau will expose Vick all game and will not let him get out of the pocket. Troy Polamalu is going to start off where he left off last week. I just see the Steelers turning the corner here and going on a run. Prediction 31-10 Steelers
