Nash Traded To Toronto!

Ok, so it's not Rick Nash, but it is a nash. The Leafs have traded goaltender Tellqvist to Phoenix in exchange for Tyson Nash and a 4th round draft pick. Rumours are circulating that a minor league player may be going to Phoenix as well, but that is not confirmed. That minor league player could be one of two players I'm hearing: Suglobov or Harrison. Harrison cleared waivers yesterday, and is currently in the AHL. Suglobov comes to mind as he is the likely odd man out with Nash coming in. Nash will add some more toughness to Toronto, while Tellqvist will hope to get another chance to prove his game in Phoenix.

The Blackhawks have had discussions with Tampa Bay about brining in Prospal. Tampa, however, doesn't seem eager to move him.

More later, when firm details on the Toronto/Phoenix trade become available
