Things are heating up

Las Vegas Sports Betting Rules

With less than a month until the trade deadline, things around the NHL are really heating up.

The Leafs are very active on the markets right now, getting an idea of exactly what there players are worth. Poni, Antropov, Kaberle and Moore are apparently the four most-wanted Leafs, while Blake, Kubina, Toskala, and Ian White could all be moved for the right price.

Sticking with the Leafs, the team have held internal discussions involving Ray Emery. Emery is currently not in Russia, and refuses to return until they pay him, something the KHL hasn't been doing properly all season.

Final Leaf note of the day? Rumours continue that Burke will have interest in the Sedins should they hit the open market on July 1st.

Moving along, the Ducks are said to be quietly shopping their "big 3" defenseman. The Devils apparently like Niedermayer, while the Habs have interest in Francois B. As for Pronger, I'm hearing Washington is really poking around this one.

Columbus has held several discussions with the Islanders involving Witt and one of their forwards, I'm hearing Comrie.

Bouwmeester is still most-likely to Edmonton. For the Oilers to get him this season, it would cost them a package involving one of Sam Gagner or Andrew Cogliano.

Steve Mason has been placed on the IR, leaving the BJ's very shallow in goal for the next week to ten days. Reports have Columbus asking the Blues about Manny Legace.

Crosby is causing a stink in Pittsburgh, wanting a top-notch linemate to play with. No names available at this point, but Ryan Whitney could be sacrificed to bring in such a player
