Sunday Night Rumours

The talk of Toronto talking to LA regarding #5 overall is very correct. The Kings are looking to dump that pick for a couple of players that can step right into the lineup, and Toronto has just that. Some rumours have the Leafs getting #5 without dealing #7.

Vinny to the Habs is looking more likely than ever. The Molson Brothers want to make a splash and they have put the pressure on Gainey to make something big happen during the draft. Whether it's Vinny or the Habs moving into the top 10, something big is going to happen for the Habs this weekend.

The latest on Heatley? San Jose is still the big favourite, but don't count out Chicago. I'm hearing the Blackhawks have put together quite the offer for the skilled winger.

Speaking of the Blackhawks, they are still trying to get Havlat re-signed, but the two sides are still a bit apart on both the term and the dollar amount.

The Flames could be major players at this weekends draft I've been told. I keep hearing one of the Flames big d-men could be on the move, but surely the Flames wouldn't trade Phaneuf, would they?

The Bruins don't want to qualify Kessel at the close to four million he's expecting, so he could be on the move this weekend or before July 1st. Colorado and Anaheim are two teams to watch there.

Sources tell me Jonas "The Monster" Gustavsson is down to Toronto, Anaheim and Dallas.

While Giguere could end up in Toronto if the Monster falls through, Montreal could be in this too.

Finally, Jay Bouwmeester is still likely to Vancouver or Edmonton, but don't count out Toronto, Montreal and Colorado?
