They want a second line center for him, they'll take Zajac.

The source of this rumor is some pant stain called "HockeyInsiderr". He's a bigger joke than Š„klund (2.3% accurate).

There's this other idiot called "Devils Insiders" who states "its gaining traction" and his source is "just hearing it from someone who tends to have a lot of inside knowledge. Totally unconfirmed, have heard Heatley waived NMC."

https://twitter.com/...889668202254336

If Heatley waived his NTC, no doubt that McKenzie, Dreger, or one of those guys would be all over it. This is total horsesh!t. Why does hockey rule the roost when it comes to ridiculousness when it comes to trade talks?

No. Neither of those are the source of this allegeded rumor. It was heard on a sports radio network in Minny. (KFAN) and has slowly snowballed after. But neither this hockeyinsiderr guy or DevilsInsiders are the origin for this. In fact Todd Cordell of HockeyBuzz said through his twitter that while he doesn't put too much into this it was started by originally by KFAN. Not saying it isn't BS either - I've tweeted the usual suspects about this as well (Dreger, Hadrek, Bobby Mac, Melrose)

I'd love to start a twitter rumour that's completely BS but has a legitimacy to it...and then see how long before "Insiders" are reporting it.

 

been there, done that. NHLLine.ca stole my completely made up Jokinen to Buffalo for Afinogenov at the draft 5 years ago, rumor.

I wouldn't trust Todd as a credible source either.

And I accidentally started the Tallinder traded rumor from last night.

 

Friends of mine from Buffalo texted me saying Rob Ray said on MSG-Buffalo Tal had been pulled from warm-ups as part of a trade... my bad.

Question: Did you think Potvin wasn't a credible source and originally dismiss the Kovalchuk rumor?

I heard it at the game too, but from an older gentleman. 

 

But back to the issue at hand.  Heatley won't yield that much for the Wild, certainly not Zajac, and probably not much more than a mid-level prospect and mid-round draft pick.  He's likely going to be amnestied next season, so they might as well get something useful for him while the getting is good.

 

In any event, I wonder if the Wild would take Salvador off our hands.  Buddies with Parise, and he lives around there.

Holy crap... this is how rumors get out of hand.


The joke was Zajac for Malkin....   but now we are throwing in Zajac for Heatley?     

But now that you mention it... Parise would be good for us. 

 

I'm hearing Parise is sent packing back to NJ to play with Zajac...   we are sending Sal, Tal, Volch and you guessed it Claude Vilgrain back to Minny.

any you guessed it, frank stallone references are a winner in my book.

 

I'm glad the rumor mongers have gotten smarter about inventing fake sources - here they even included a real radio station.

This doesn't sounds Lou like to trade for someone who's career is toast like Heatley's. Makes no sense. It has Rolston 2.0 written all over it. I don't care if the guy was best man at Kovy's wedding, I think he sucks. I'd be VERY upset if we trade anything beyond a bag of pucks for something as bad as Heatley.
