Pretty amazing amount of activity going into the draft.


Andrew Alberts: He has become very valuable and was really impressive this season as a physical defenseman who can move the puck. Dallas and Philly right now.

Mats Sundin: The Wings and Canucks.

Francois Beauchemin: The Leafs and Kings are added to the list.

Todd Bertuzzi: Still looking at Habs, but Leafs and Devils added...

Mike Cammalleri: A lot changing with Cammalleri. Nashville is the new favorite, but the Isles, Sabres, Sens, are definitely in the mix.

Erik Cole: Feeling that Carolina is a great bet, but add today Blue Jackets, Stars, Ducks...

Greg de Vries: Philly leading the way here, but Montreal, Calgary, Florida....(basically a Jay Bo Domino player that brings a lot)

Marian Gaborik: The Wild are trying to get back in it, but almost everyone agrees he will be a King unless the Kings land Vinny.

Brian Gionta: The Sabres, Canucks, Flames. Gionta is perhaps the real diamond in the ruff of the UFA forwards. What I will tell you is that while Pittsburgh is not in this sweeps yet, I think they could be.

Martin Havlat: He has said on Twitter that he wants to stay in Chicago, but I am hearing the NY Islanders are making a huge push. The Sabres and Caps are as well going to get involved. The Canadiens could aslo see Havlat as a Vinny Lecavalier consolation prize.

Nikolai Khabibulin: The Hawks are getting more interested apparently...The Islanders are also...which is interesting.

Ville Koistinen: Montreal is the sudden player to watch. You all know that I am a HUGE Ville Koistinen fan. I see him much like Kimmo Timonen.

Jere Lehtinen: The Wild are now a team to look at, along with the previous teams.

John Madden: The Canucks are a team now that is in on this HIGHLY valuable player.

Derek Morris: Still leading to the Sens...

Vincent Lecavalier: There is a new leader in this race...

Johnny Oduya: The Leafs are now a player that is added to a growing list

Mattias Ohlund: The Hawks are in on this now, which i know is very odd, but I can only tell you that it points to a trade that could take place at the draft.

Alex Tanguay: Colorado, NJ, Montreal, Atlanta...Tanguay is a great pickup.

I am hearing from sources that Emery is a one year deal...Stay tuned..

On the Tribtron.. Thanks to Channel 4-ABC WTAE in Pittsburgh for spreading the word today on Tribtron.

I implore hockey fans from everywhere to join in the cause by calling and sending emails. My inside sources are saying that a decision could be on the table by 5pm ET.. They are saying while we face an uphill battle, the campaign is working.
