Rumour – Sens & Flames Talking?
Look, what I’m about to post is pure RUMOUR.
The names involved are staggering, to both clubs rumoured to be involved.
On the Ottawa side, these players may not be franchise guys, but they represent the future of the club.
On the other team, it is the face of the franchise, a franchise in turmoil.
Here’s the e-mail I received.
“Calgary is in full fledged panic mode, I’m talking outright mayhem. The players are tunned out, the management is at each others thraots and the fans are ready to write off the season and are sick of hearing about the Oilers rooks knowing their cupboard sits bare…
Ottawa who has done a great job of restocking the shelves but can’t get them into the line-up. Murray is looking to make moves in the forward ranks to spark the team and do something to cure the lack of offense. He’s ready to part with some assets other teams value in favor of some guys curently playing in the American league…
Murray really wants Iginla and Calgary seems ready to listen and ready to move the remainder of his contract, it’s a big pill for any team to swallow during the season and there’s no way they can get a equal player back and they have to accept that if they move Iggy out.
Murray has put both Regin and Foligno in play and wants to throw in Kovalev as the replacement RW’er but the Flames know that would spell a full rebuild. It would surely take picks if this was the case and Toronto set the bar in the Kessel deal at a couple of firsts for a player of quality.
Not saying this is the deal but knowing the money involved I would think something like Kovalev along with Regin and Foligno and a 1 and 2 in return for Jarome and Kos or a player of a similar hit.”
So there you have it;
Kovalev, Foligno, Regin and a 1st and 2nd.
Let me be the first to say…if only, but it ain’t going to happen.
