Flyers Have Interest In Leclair

Would provide good leadership and a little pinch of offense to a team who is really looking to improve in all areas. Leclairs stats obviously are misleading as he's been given next-to-no ice-time in Pittsburgh. Several teams will consider Leclair, and his stay in Pittsburgh should end in the next 72 hours...

Pavel Kubina has struggled since his return from injury, and thats probably because he has been paired with Wade Belak. Carlo Colaiacovo is ready to go after concussion/finger problems, and could join the Leafs as early as next week. He will likely suit up for the Marlies in the meantime. Also to note, Bryan McCabe will play tonight despite an ankle injury suffered on Tuesday.

Rumour has it that Tellqvist may get the start in Phoenix tonight, but that is not confirmed. As the kings struggle, a game against the kings may be a perfect start for Tellqvist.

Finally, rumour this morning was that the Blue Jackets were quietly looking around the league, seeing what they could get from Gilbert Brule. The team has been unhappy with his play so far this season, though I believe Hitchcock is the right guy to get this kid going.
