Habs Talk

The Habs are after Dumont, and I'm hearing right now it's between Habs and one other team (may be Colorado but I cannot confirm this right now). A lot of people have been telling me, "Dumont cannot sign with Buffalo", but he can, and still may, however he is a little bitter over his arbitration hearing and would rather go home to Montreal. The Habs would have to make a deal, and one involving Bonk would be most likely. A rumour going around has Bonk going to Washington, but I am hearing Chicago and Florida are the two teams to watch right now.

The Leafs are still trying to move Antropov, but they may have to throw in a defensive prospect in order for someone to take him. The Leafs are still talking to Carter, as are the Wings and Pens.

Speaking of the Pens, they were deep in talks with Perrault, however at this point, with Malkin likely to sign in Pittsburgh, it is unclear if Perrault is still in their plans.

Finally, great move by Phoenix yesterday. Owen Nolan has had a lot of time to sit and rest, and should return as a serious force for the Coyotes. He'll be able to hide on the 2nd line, and should play well for the Coyotes. The Coyotes are still looking for that number one center, Gomez is still at the top of their list. Calgary will have something to say about that though....stay tuned
