Rumors: Johnny Hockey to PHI or NJ? Hall deal by end of Jan? Mon's Buzz

Happy Monday Hockey World.

Today we will start off by looking at the rumors swirling this morning....then get into some specifics.

On Johnny Gaudreau...

I was very hesitant to add Johnny Hockey to the Rumor Chart, but after talking to several sources this morning I am convinced the Flames are internally discussing options for the first time.

Two teams are jumping to the forefront...both of whom have ties with Gaudreau going back to his youth...Philly and NJ. Gaudreau is from South Jersey...which is really Flyers country.

The Flyers have always wanted Gaudreau and the question is...can they or should they move for him now that his value is at its lowest? Gostisbehere and one of their top prospects along with a #1 pick would get it done I am told. That is very tempting...

NJ is also interested, but not in terms of the rumored Hall for Gaudreau swap that is out there...Rather as a replacement should Hall be moved...an eventuality that is growing more and more likely all the time...

On Hall...

In fact, I am told the Devils have set a deadline of sorts for the end of January to move Hall..and they are open to letting teams talk extension...I have even heard they may have already granted a team this ability, but that is just rumor at this point...

On the Habs..

Montreal is looking more and more like they are preparing to make a bold move...One source tells me that "all the important figures are meeting today to discuss 'how bold'."

Stay tuned as we get further inside hockey as the day goes...
