Sam Gagner to the Maple Leafs trade rumors? Shot down tonight by Oilers Now host Bob Stauffer on Twitter.
Ales Hemsky to Ottawa? Once again, shot down by Stauffer. It's not so much that Hemsky to Ottawa is impossible. Stauffer believes Hemsky's value will be higher if the Oilers wait to deal him this summer, after the UFA rush is over.
Oh, and Craig MacTavish's media availability on Tuesday?...

Today's Leafs/Kings deal for Jonathan Bernier woke everyone up. Twitter is going crazy.
Rumors indicate the Leafs have interest in Sam Gagner. Perhaps. I think Sam Gagner has interest in the Leafs.
I think I wrote a blog about this...ummm, maybe a years and a half ago. At that time I heard a rumor that Gagner wanted to be dealt, and preferred if it was to a team in Ontario...
Now that the NHL playoffs are over, we can focus on more important things, like the NHL draft.
Everyone is expecting big things from the Oilers this week. Hate to tell you this, but it's going to feel like Steve Tambellini is still the GM. I don't expect the Oilers to do much.

"On the heels of the acquisition of goaltender Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings, the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to be the subject of trade rumours. The Maple Leafs have reportedly spoken with the Edmonton Oilers about the availability of centre Sam Gagner." - Sportsnet.ca**The Leafs are in need of a centre. Gagner would be a great addition to the team. There...
Lots of rumors out there as to what the Oilers are up to. Of course, there's going to be plenty. This is the week the NHL get its crazy on. Here's some updates:
Oilers have made a long-term contract extension offer to him. From what I've heard the two sides are close. So close, in fact, that a new deal could be announced by the end of the day.
Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter!
There's a lot of talk on Twitter right now about a potential post-playoff swap between the Edmonton Oilers and Ottawa Senators. I was skeptical in the beginning, with what appeared like a rumor originating from HFBoards. But, a few people have told me Oilers Now radio guy Bob Stauffer has not-so-subtly noted that Hemsky could be on...
Drew Stafford for Ales Hemsky?
Ain't gonna happen, so don't bother asking if the rumors are true.
Stafford is in play right now and will likely be moved at the draft. However, the Sabres are not interested in taking back an aging, broken down $5 million money pit like Hemsky. Darcy Regier is going younger not older.
