  1. Greetings all, That's right your insider is still here and digging up rumors. Apologies for going quiet after the trade deadline but with things settling in for the play offs and stuff getting busy in the real world I haven't had a chance to post until now. But enough of that, on with the show! I'm hearing talk from north Alberta that a new GM will be stepping in soon for the Oilers. With the starting Goalie looking for a new contract and not a lot in the minors the new GM will have his work cut out for him. Staying on the head office front. I've heard talk that another team is looking at a GM change. No word yet on the specific team but i will keep hunting for info. On the player front I'm hearing all is not well at the negotiation table between Florida and Jonas Brodin. The RFA defenseman may be looking for more then expected. In the Lonestar state recently acquired forward Brayden Schenn is close to inking a long term deal. In Winnipeg, I've heard that long time Jet Alex Burrows is available. Could this be a sign of big change coming to Winnipeg? Word in Chicago is GM Buddhas Hand is making a strong push to sign veteran forward Chris Kunitz I have heard that Alex Tanguay has given Montreal the go ahead to talk trade with teams around the league. On the flip side Chris Higgins has declined to waive his NMC and will be staying in Detroit. In Denver Brent Seabrook is available has GM Boxing Hobo looks to address some salary issues. Also hearing that the negotiating rights for Jonathan Quick are available if anyone wanted to get a leg up on signing a goalie. Finally i have heard talk from Washington that negotiations with Ryan Ellis are not going well. Word is talks have stalled because Ellis doesn`t see a role for himself on the current roster. Well that`s all for now folks, i`ll be back with more in the future.

A couple of quick hits for today, - Word out of Buffalo that Joe Pavelski might be looking at testing free agency has led GM lethunder to look at trade options. I have heard that Joe would be willing to waive his no move clause if the right team made an offer. - Much talk out of Denver about defensemen, GM boxing hobo needs to clear space on his blueline and I'm hearing he might be willing to move a top pairing guy to make something happen. - GM RobertoLuongo is looking to shake things up in the motor city and I'm hearing that the number one line is the topic of discussion.
