Quiet day in Habsland, but lots of rumours

With the Canadiens resting until Wednesday against Buffalo, things are fairly quiet in Habsland. Two great pieces in today's Gazette on Plekanec and Halak today.  I really believe Plekanec is a special player. Gainey should not, I repeat not, deal Pleks.

Rumours as they come today. First off, Bob McKenzie's discussion from radio this morning:

  • Philly wants to get rid of Briere, realizes it was a bad signing
  • Bob Gainey is still shopping for a top six forward, likely a center, Dominic Moore is a possibility
  • As far as he can find out, Kaberle to Boston rumours have been fabricated
  • Toronto will definitely trade Antropov and Moore, unless Moore signs a contract extension today, and likely Ponikarovsky
  • Ottawa will trade both Kuba and Neil
  • Phoenix does not want much for Olli Jokinen, McKenzie called this a "soft deal" to be had, they simply want to get rid of him as the relationship has not worked out
