Some Quick Rumors for Your Wednesday

We all know he is a UFA, and will not be offered a deal in Tampa, but here's the latest on Feds. Rumors have him going to Atlanta, Carolina, Detroit, with Carolina being the highest on the list. I think he would fit in better in Detroit as a 3rd liner, but that's just my opinion, plus I would like to see him out of the East.

Also, there were rumors floating around that the Bolts were trying to deal Denis to Ottawa for Gerber, but that has been quashed. He will probably be dealt or released in the next 2 weeks leading up to the July 1st free agency date.

Available goalies for trade are: Manny Fernandez, Vesa Toskala, Cristobal Huet, Evgeni Nabokov, Martin Gerber, Hannu Toivonen, Nick Khabibulin, David Aebischer. Robert Esche and probably a few others I haven't thought of. So there are quite a few possibilities out there.

The free agent pool is getting shallower, and includes Hasek, Cujo, Belfore, and Giguerre.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Feaster make a run at Fernandez. Perhaps offering up Denis in return.

The Entry Draft starts Friday night, not that it matters to the Bolts who don't have a 1st rounder. Free Agency opens July 1st, cap rumored to be raised to between $50 and $52 mil.

Stay Tuned!!!
