The trade speculation has been constant and will heat up even more. The Canes' names have been out there: Tim Gleason, Tuomo Ruutu, Jaroslav Spacek, Bryan Allen. "UFA" might as well stand for Undetermined Future Acquisition, to read some of the trade gossip floating around the 'net. But there are some in the Canadian media who want to float two other names: Eric Staal and Cam Ward. With a big enough offer, some believe, one of them might be available as the Canes look to reconstruct the team. Question: Can you see that happening? Or just wild speculation? The floor is open.
