Parise a Leaf? Doughty for Weber deal close? Stamkos dominoes...Yashin this year's Sundin?

Hi everyone.  I just sun burned my ass in Margate, New Jersey with the fake fam and am now ready to confirm with my toilet all kinds of mega super huge blockbuster rumours.  Zach Parise badly wants out of New Jersey and Lou Lamoriello really wants to get rid of Parise.  Kovalchuk is the main guy now in New Jersey and the sooner Parise can be traded then the better off everyone in the Devils organization will be.  I am hearing the Leafs are the frontrunners in this but do not count out the Sabres.  They have all kinds of Cap space even though their payroll right now is around 100 million dollars.  They could send Ryan Miller down to the AHL and they would be cap compliant.  Then they call him up for the playoffs and win the Cup. Has this ever been done before?  I am hearing Kadri and Schenn would be going to the Devils for Parise but do not be surprised if Phaneuf goes as well.  P3

Drew Doughty and Shea Weber will be traded for one another.  It makes so much sense.  The Kings need a guy like Weber who can blast the puck and scare goalies.  The Preds need a guy like Doughty who can think the game at a much higher level than anyone else ever.  This could be done on the weekend and NHL GM"s love making their trades when no one goes on the internet.  I am also hearing the Leafs, Rangers and Flyers are ready to submit offer sheets to both Weber and Doughty should the Kings-Preds deal falls through.  P2

Steve Stamkos is on the block folks.  Even though he recently signed a new 5 year contract extension, this is only the tip of the iceberg.  Stamkos feels disrespected in Tampa and he needs a change of scenery.  I am told that Paul Holmgren has the best trade offer right now.  It is so good that Yzerman may not be able to resist pulling the tirigger.  Briere is most likely involved but so too is Van Riemsdyk.  The Pens may be willing to move Malkin to get Stamkos.  Stammer and Sid together?  Wow that would be so amazing.  It would be the best 1-2 punch ever.  P4

Alexei Yashin's agent, Marc Gandler, just told me that as many as all 30 NHL teams have expressed some kind of interest in signing his client.  I am told that he has narrow it down to 16 teams and that 8 of them are in the East.  The other 8 are in the West with 4 of those teams in the Central and 2 of them in the Pacific.  Detroit is VERY interested as they need to replace Kris Draper.  Draper was pencilled in to be the Wings #1 centre ahead of both Datsyuk and Zetterberg on the depth chart.  P1

Well folks, as I sit here in my Transformers underwear on the beach in Margate, New Jersey...something has occurred to me...the Winnipeg Jets could win the Stanley Cup this year.  I mean if they can score goals and not give up goals then they will be very hard to match up against.  I mean look at Boston.  Who would have thought they could win the Cup?  It may very well happen in Winnipeg.  Good for those die-hard fans who have waited such a long time for NHL hockey to return.  I know when I saved the Nashville Predators that I felt a warm sensation in my heart that I did mankind a big service.  I still feel bad for Billy Joe Jimbob and Crazy Uncle Eddie in Atlanta.  The 2 season ticket holders who had to see their team leave.  Don't worry guys.  Atlanta WILL have an NHL team again within the next 4 years.  I am told they will get a team before Quebec does.  P4
