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 the move, with Ottawa...

Apparently Team Sweden isn’t counting on Daniel Alfredsson to dig for gold next winter.

Gagner and the Oilers are about $500K per season apart on a new contract. My guess...
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...
Alright everyone, grab your teacup and get ready to read the leaves, because there’s nothing else to do now that Daniel Alfredsson has been omitted from a list of 35 prospective Swedish hockey players who have been invited by the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation for an information session to brief them on preparations for the Sochi Olympics.
It’s a melodramatic wrinkle in an...
