Pierre LeBrun: Sources tell ESPN’s Burnside that the Avalanche have told the Leafs he won’t be traded to them. Elliotte Friedman: Reason the Leafs-Avalanche deal for J-M Liles fell apart was that the Leafs asked for a draft pick in addition for Liles. Adrian Dater: Dater think the Avs MUST not get anything less than a 1st rounder or a real good player for Liles.
Darren Dreger: The Flyers are looking for a forward. With Nikolai Zherdev they have $1.9 in cap space, $3.9 without him.
Bob McKenzie: Nashville has interest in Ladislav Smid. Chicago would like to add a defenseman, Matt Hunwick (COL) and Mark Stuart (ATL) could be on their radar.
Damian Cox: Leafs tiring kicking on Weiss isn’t going far.
Spector’s Hockey: Media consensus is that it would take a really big offer to get Zach Bogosian, likely to stay put.
Tom Gulitti: Jason Arnott will consider waiving his no movement clause for a playoff team.
