Updates on Kovalchuk, Visnovsky, Souray, Phaneuf and Whitney

Kovalchuk - I still believe he will end up in a Kings uniform. Like I said yesterday, it would take something like Frolov, Johnson a top prospect/1st round pick. However, the Boston Bruins may be willing to make a push as long as it does not involve the Leafs 1st round draft pick and Tuuka Rask.

Visnovsky - This guy would be a great add for anyone. He plays solid Defense, but his real upside is Offense, this guy is so talented. When Lubomir wants to score he is going to score and he can make the players look foolish doing it. I personally would love to see Lubomir in a Devils uniform as long as we don't give up to much. Other possible suitors are the Sabres, Coyotes, and Avalanche.

Souray - He is another guy who can just bomb it from the point. His Defense is average, but like Lubomir, his real upside is Offense. This guy has one of the hardest shots in the league and instantly adds another demension to your Powerplay. Some possible suitors are the Sabres, Devils, Coyotes, Avalanche, Ducks, Sharks, and Kings.

Dion Phaneuf  - According to one of our Flames bloggers the New Jersey Devils are leading the way for Dion Phaneuf, we have no names on who may be sent the other way but I would guess a top 6 Forward, a Defenseman and a 1st/2nd round draft choice would be going to Calgary.

Ray Whitney - 8 to 10 teams are interested in Ray Whitney's services, he is a good top 6 Forward at a reasonable salary, I have heard the Senators, Bruins, Kings, Flames, Ducks, Canadiens, and Devils all have interest.

According to Tarik El-Bashir  "Braden Holtby has been sent back to Hershey. So that means Jose Theodore is ready to return (at least as a backup) tomorrow."

As always all comments are welcome.
