Blues are in play for Heatley

June 21, 2009, 7:42 PM ET [ Comments]
Another quick Father's Day Hit.

Now, when it comes to St. Louis, I generally leave the rumors to the most hockey connected man in Missouri, but I got this one out of Montreal just now, and as I reported on day 1 of this Heatley saga, the Blues are a major player...

The following was a text message: "The Blues will be looking to try and cement Heatley in by Wednesday evening..."

I have also heard from various sources that of the three or four best "real" offers being considered by Ottawa right now, St. Louis may be the best, followed closely by LA, and Calgary and NY..

HB is looking for a System Admin

HockeyBuzz.com is looking for a part-time/on-call Linux system administrator to aid the current staff. This person must be well versed in both Apache and Nginx, mySQL administration and be familiar with setting up Memcache.  Candidate must also have experience configuring the TCP/IP stack to handle immense spikes in traffic.  Familiarity with Amazon EC2 is a plus, but not required.    If you’re interested in applying, please send your resume to [email protected]

From earlier...

Happy father's day. Quick hit as we get together with family.

I have confirmation that the Leafs are trying to get to #5 and the Kings to #3

A source has told me that the Montreal Canadiens new ownership is "eagerly anticipating the draft and a major splash that they intend to make." I firmly believe after talking to more people that Vinny Lecavalier will be a Canadien in one week's time.

Brent Sutter will be announced as the new Flames coach as early as Tuesday.

more tonight and of course first thing tomorrow as we enter the killer final days leading up to the draft and UFA day....I will also be updating around 80-90% of the rumor chart tomorrow morning once I can sift through all the emails and texts and voicemails from my verified sources...


more to come...
