Todays Juicy Updates

The question every Leaf fans ask: What are the Leafs doing?

Toronto is now in talks with St. Louis. The Blues have been openly shopping Barret Jackman and Eric Brewer after lacluster starts by the two. Toronto has made Aki Barg, Nik Antropov, Alexei Ponikarovski and Carlo Coliacovo. Jackman is said to be mroe in the Leafs plans than Brewer. The Capitals and Leafs have not stopped the trade talks but it has become apparent that Witt is being seeked by many teams and Burke wants way too much for Carny so Toronto has moved on to plan C.

Nashvile has called oiff the Walker trade talks with Toronto as the Leafs do not want to part with Stajan and that is all Nashville desires from the Leafs.

Owen Nolan is still said to be signing with the Nashville Predators, but now with the retirement of Brett Hull Owen has been contacted by the Coyotes. Look for Nolan to go to one of these places soon.

Mike Milbury has only a limited amount of time left to turn the Islander ship around or he will be on his way out.

The Oilers have a lot on the table. They would like to address two needs. One is their goaltending and the other is more skill up front. They have been in talks with the Buffalo Sabres for both Noronen and Biron so look for one of them to go to the West soon. They have also been in contact with Vancouver for Bertuzzi. Bertuzzi has been shopped since the summer.

The Rangers have wanted to get Laraque from the Oilers for awhile now but Lowe is concerned that he would not have any tough guys left if Laraque were dealt.

Atlanta has now started looking in other directions for goaltending help. The Coyotes have been shopping Boucher and they may have found a buyer in Atlanta.

Big news out of Vancouver is Eddy Jovanovski is being shopped and may be on his way back to sunrise. Vancouver has openly expressed interest in Jay Boumeester and Mike Keanen has been known to favour older, established players. Boumeester could be on his way to Canada.

Poor Oleg Kvasha is still on the block and like before Calgary has sent out a feeler but don't look for too much to happen there. Check back soon for more details
