A few trade rumors from around the league:
The Penguins are reportedly interested in Nashville's Martin Erat. The Preds are asking for 2-3 young players in return. Alex Goligoski would be one of them.
The Vancouver are interested in Flyers' forward Jeoffrey Lupul, they would send Matthias Ohlund in return (he as a no-trade clause though). The Flyers would prefer to send Mike Knuble.
Kari Lehtonen is rumored to be on the block. He will start the Thrashers' next game as Ondrej Pavelec was to the AHL. The Thrashers are looking for a young forward in return.
The Senators are quietly shopping Mike Fisher, who's starting to heat up at just the right time for Bryan Murray. The Sens are looking for defensive depth. Forget about the Spezza for Khabibulin, it's just a dumb rumor.
The Maple Leafs are not shopping Jeff Finger contrary to the rumors around the league. With Van Ryn's injury look for Finger to get an increased workload. The Leafs are shopping Ian White and Carlo Colaiacovo. The Blues are interested in Colaiacovo.
Brendan Shanahan will make his decision this week, maybe even on Wednesday.
Shanny wants to play for a team from the Northeast to be close to his family in NY. However, the Flyers, Hawks, Blues, Devils and Senators have shown interest in him. My bet is on the Devils, as New Jersey's offense has been lackluster recently.
