So it begins. Well, pretty soon anyways. Providing you read the links this morning, you know a couple of the big storylines already. Rumours that have been circulating today are about Gillis talking extensively with Brian Burke, and that apparently a Rick Nash trade is in the works. We'll probably update this post with anymore big trade action this afternoon/evening. Anything big on the Canucks front will have special treatment.
- Oilers take Yakupov, Blue Jackets take Ryan Murray. Yawn.
- Ducks trade Lubomir Visnovsky to the Islanders for a 2nd round pick in 2013.
- Capitals send Cody Eakin and a 2nd round 2012 draft pick to the Stars in exchange for Mike Ribeiro.
- Penguins trade Jordan Staal to the Hurricanes in exchange for Carolina's 8th pick overall in this draft (they chose Derrick Pouliot), Brandon Sutter, and Brian Dumoulin.
Go draft drama.
