Wednesday Morning Rumors: Boogaard to the Flyers?

The Devils are pushing hard to bring D Sheldon Souray back to New Jersey, according to the Newark Star-Ledger, and his signing could be imminent. The paper described the Devils as front-runners for the hard-shooting, unrestricted free agent blue-liner, who made $2.43M last season. Meanwhile, the New York Post said sources are “buzzing” that Souray might join the Rangers, although that seems unlikely because New York doesn’t have much room left under the salary cap.

Glen Murray on the trading Block. The Boston Hearald is comfirming what i and many have been reporting for days. Murray is due 8.3 million over the next two years.

Dallas morning news is reporting the Dallas Stars have a 3 yr – 12 million offer on the table for Slava Koslov

The Flyers are looking for a heavyweight enforcer and the Camden Courier-Post reports they might find a way to fit Derek Boogard, a restricted free agent, under the salary cap for less than $1M. The 6-7, 254-pound left winger had one assist, 120 PIM and averaged 4:38 in ice time in 48 games with the Minnesota Wild last season. George Laraque is not going anywhere.

The Ottawa Sun reports that the Capitals, Hurricanes, Kings, Sabres, Thrashers and Islanders have shown an interest in Senators C Comrie.

The Wild, Canadiens, Oilers, Devils and Senators also have been reportedly interested in Alexei Yasin

Bill Guerin is seeking 4 million per season and is the reason he has yet to receive “any” offers of 4 million per season. He turned down a 2 yr – 7 million offer from the NYI Tuesday. The Canucks had disscussions with the Guerin but were also scared off by his demands. His asking price has reportedly dropped down 3.5 million but is still scarying teams away. Ottawa remains interested and have reportedly made a offer according to reports out of Canada.

Slava Kozlov – appears to be leaning towards signing in Dallas according to reports out of Dallas.. Toronto and Atlanta are rumored to be making a late push.

The Buffalo Sabres are looking to move Ales Kotalik.

Theres has been some rumblings that Ed Jovanoski was asked to waive his no trade clause today. Spectors is reporting he turned down the demand. It is believed the Isles were in talks with Yotes about Jovo.

Montreal is still seeking a #1 center and have offered Mike Ryder and a 1st round pick for Patrick Marleau. Don’t look for the Sharks to be trading Marleau after missing out on Drury.

Andy Sutton is still asking for 3 million per season. Some believe he will return to Atlanta once his price drops.

Danny Markov rejected offers from the Pens and Blackhawks. Is seeking Cory Sarich money ( 3.6 million) and isn’t getting it. The New Jersey Devils were believed to have also made a offer.
The Fourth Period.com had a article of about Sheldon Souray and were speculating teams are shying away from Sheldon Souray’s demands based on his suspect defensive play. He is a average defenseman defensively but how scary was the Habs powerplay with him firing shots from the point.

I’ve been asking around about where Eric Lindros is going to end up? No one has a clue.

  • Latest Penguin rumors….. Not to many going around but heres the latest.
    The Penguins have made no offers to Mike Peca
    “absolutely “no interest in Derrik Morris.
    Phoenix Coyotes and Columbus Blue Jackets have inquired about Ryan Malone during and after the draft. Phoenix has been rumored to be interested but Columbus is a new one. Don’t look to much into it. The Penguins have been getting calls on whether they are looking to move any forwards. Doesn’t appear they are willing to until all of their RFA’s are signed.
