(Eklund) Rumors+ we find out who one of Eklunds sources is


Recommended Posts

Update: Text from source, "Pittsburgh trying to get in on Schultz sweeps. Edm, Toronto, Vancouver and Buffalo also in the game.."

Quick hits. Heading back from the shore. from a family gathering.

Hearing the Bruins are in on Nash, and as is being reported elsewhere...the Nash "list of teams" is a bit overblown and the Jackets are talking to anyone with an offer....I could envision a scenario where the Jackets come to Nash and say, "The only offers we are ok taking is x & y, so can any of these teams be possible for your list?" You have to think Nash wants this over already and would listen.

In regards to the Nash rumors flying around the Flyers today...I am not saying the Flyers are not in on Nash, but I don't feel he is on top of their list and when it comes to spending that cap hit...the Flyers are far more likely to make a HUGE play for Shea Weber.

I have heard rumor of Flyers/Preds possible deals... one of which could would send JVR, Voracek, Bourdon, and the Flyers next two first round picks. However, the Preds aren't ready to even discuss this at this point. The Preds are still focussed on returning both Weber and Suter at this point, however should the scenery change in the next week or so it appears the Flyers are one of the few team with depth and desire who could offer up two top 6 forwards (which Nashville wants terribly) along with youth and picks.

On Luongo...

There is a ton of talk over the last few days saying the Lightning picked up Lindback to be a piece in a deal to grab Luongo. Based on my discussions....I don't see that being the case. Essentially the only way Tampa gets in on Luongo is if Vancouver would be willing to take back Lecavalier and his enormous contract...

One source swears to me that Luongo deal will get done well ahead of the draft and he is going to be a Leaf...

My favourite Leaf is Clarke MacArthur. I have his jersey. Although he probably won't be in the Luongo deal I would love to have Clarke as a Canuck. He would be perfect for 2nd line playmaking minutes. I hope Alberts would give him his 41. That was Clarkes favourite number. He wears 16 as a Leaf since Kulemin has 41

I highly doubt that Lindback has anything to do with acquiring Luongo, they don't want to give up what we want, and we don't want what they are willing to give up. Luongo to a non financially secure team isn't going to work. He needs to go to a team with a loaded owner.

Luongo to Columbus is perfect for Columbus, you just hope Luongo's relationship with Ian Clark is a motivating factor for him to waive his NTC.

Columbus gets a goalie that is locked in and won't leave for a very long time. They have a hard time obviously recruiting UFAs and the fear that they acquire an asset for them to just leave when hitting UFA. A career contract might not be a bad idea.

I really doubt Lindback has anything to do with a trade for Luongo. The point of getting rid of Luongo is that we have goalies here to rely on and we can take the chance on getting rid of one to obtain something we need on this team.

If Lindback is in a package to get Luongo, then whatever winger or D is in the package will be worth less.
