Rumor Mill

Just to keep the pot officially stirred - I read an interesting rumor posted by Eklund on that the Sharks are close to making a deal for (wait for it) Wade Redden. He says the asking price might be Marleau, which doesn't make much sense. Ottawa could not afford to keep Marleau, so he would purely be a rental where the Sharks would make every effort to sign Redden right away to keep the #1 defensemen Wilson covets. I am guessing there is a third team involved here that wants Marleau (Edmonton? Montreal?) that has the pieces that will make sense for Ottawa in this deal.

We shall see...if Redden comes, remember you heard it here first! Let's hope it can happen without giving up the Captain.
