Sundin, McCabe Skip Practice

The team is blaming the flu, but it should be worth noting that reports have McCabe only leaving practice after meeting with Cliff Fletcher...something to keep an eye on.

Sundin apparently has given Fletcher a list of teams he'd be interested in playing for. Rumoured list is Anaheim, Detroit, Montreal, San Jose, and Vancouver. Some sources also include Calgary and Ottawa. Apparently Detroit has really stepped up their efforts in the last 24 hours.

The Sharks are really going after Brian Campbell. Matt Carle would likely be part of any deal San Jose makes, whether it be for a forward or defenseman.

The Flyers have claimed Thoreson on waivers...They are VERY in the Brad Richards sweepstakes, as are Calgary (if they can dump Tanguay) and Columbus. More teams will get in this after the Sundin situation is cleared up.

Rumours are swirling that Ottawa is working on a deal that would bring in Khabibulin. Thats definitely something to watch.

I have an event to attend tonight, and will not be around after 4 pm today. Check the forums for the latest updates.
