Trade Winds are G-Force

With the trade deadline only a few weeks away, the rumor mill is open for business, and business is good. This is where guys like Eklund rake in the dough. So without further to do, here are some of the best trade rumors floating around.
Here is a trade that just happened today:
The Bruins have traded D Milan Jurcina to Washington for a 4th round pick in 2008.

Back to the rumors...

* Nathan Horton may want out of Florida, and Vancouver and Boston are the front-runners for him in the West. -Hockey Buzz. Ah geeziz, the Horton to Vancouver rumors never end, do they?
* Les Habitants are interested in acquiring Nik Zherdev or Ladislav Nagy. -Hockey Buzz. Ooo, 2 more injury-prone guys to Montreal? They'd fit right in!
* The Black Hawks and even the Bruins may be seriously inquiring about Sergei Samsonov. - Hockey Buzz. I can see him going to Chicago.
* The Rangers may be inquiring about Todd Bertuzzi. -Hockey Buzz. Who in their right mind would take Bertuzzi when he has proven nothing this season? It's like acquiring Eric Daze...
* Bill Guerin is being looked at by Nashville, Buffalo, Ottawa, and Montreal. - Hockey Buzz. Can you see Nashville adding anyone? Do they NEED anyone? Why would Buffalo need him either?

***ANOTHER TRADE TODAY: The Lightning have acquired forwads KYLE WANVIG AND STEPHEN BABY from the Thrashers for defenceman ANDY DELMORE and forward ANDRE DEVEAUX.*** - Spector's. Geez, I think Delmore just won the Journeyman Award.

*Iain MacIntyre reports Canucks GM Dave Nonis might "line window-shop Philadelphia Flyers centre Peter Forsberg, but MacIntyre notes there are too many issues that'll likely prevent Forsberg from coming to Vancouver. - Spector's. Yeah, issues like: he might catch a longterm flu in the Vancouver cold air, or his leg might fall off. Can you imagine Forsberg playing with Naslund though....damn!

*Jim Matheson yesterday reported speculation is growing that the Bruins will trade defenceman Brad Stuart to the Oilers. -Spector's and the Edmonton Journal. There is little doubt that the Oilers will get a decent D-man before the deadline.

*Brent Sopel, Derek Armstrong, Sean Avery and possibly Aaron Miller could be moved by the deadline. - Spector's and the LA daily News. This is because their contracts expire at the end of the year.
