Peklund is back! New bullshit hockey rumours! P5

Hi folks.  Peklund is back!  I am once again ready to post bullshit hockey rumours for all of you to enjoy.  Or not enjoy.  I don't care!  My success rate is still higher than Eklund's.  Well I will not make you wait any longer!  Lets get to the rumours! 

I just got off my Fisher Price Walkie Talkie with some valued sources of mine.  Now as all of you well know...all players, agents and GM'S trust me with their lives.  So I can tell you something but it may not necessarily mean it will lead to something much bigger I am told.  Shea Weber hates Nashville and they hate him.  Drew Doughty can't wait to not be a King.  The 2 teams have been in SERIOUS talks ever since Draft Day.  A deal was almost done but the Kings pulled out because the Preds wanted Ryan Smyth.  Dean Lombardi ended up trading Smyth back to Edmonton.  But now the Preds really want to rid themselves of Weber and focus on keeping Suter.  So right now I am hearing a possible Weber for Doughty trade which may also involve some other key pieces going each way.  Dustin Brown is in play here.  So is David Legwand.  A trade could happen as soon as Saturday.  Teams love doing deals on the weekend because no one ever goes on the internet when the news breaks.  It makes things much easier for all those who are involved.  Stay tuned...P3

Ever since the Stanley Cup Final was over, Roberto Luongo has been in play all over the league.  Dave Nonis is willing to take just about anything to be rid of Luongo.  I am hearing the Sens have serious interest and could be trading Spezza.  The Oilers are also in on Spezza.  Hemsky could be traded but with Cogliano being moved, I am now hearing that they would like to add a star player to compliment Taylor Hall.  Tyler Seguin could be moved from the Bruins because he is not getting enough playing time in Boston.  Chiarelli is very scared when Seguin's contract is up years from now.  Just like Stamkos in Tampa.  His 5 year deal basically wrote him a one way ticket out of Tampa.  Seguin for Hemsky makes perfect sense for both sides.  P2

Tampa still wants to trade Stamkos.  The Flyers are the frontrunners here and Yzerman really likes Claude Giroux.  Giroux is that once in a lifetime player which all coaches can only dream about.  Stamkos for Giroux could happen as soon as Monday.  I am also hearing that Chris Pronger is personally calling and texting Stamkos and that the 2 have grown very close this summer.  Pronger even named his parrot STAMMER.  It just seems like a match made in heaven here. Stamkos would easily score 100 goals playing with Van Rymsdyk.  P4

Brian Burke has been burning up the phone lines all summer and I am told to expect 1 if not 2 major blockbuster trades before Training Camp starts.  The Leafs desperately need a number one centre as they see Tim Connolly as more of a #2 guy.  I am hearing Joe Thornton could be traded for the right price.  The Leafs are willing to give up Kadri and Schenn. The holdup right now is that Schenn is a RFA.  Once he is signed, we could see Thornton headed to Toronto.  I am also hearing the Sharks may include Patrick Marleau but the Leafs would have to give up Phaneuf.  You never know here folks.  Where there is smoke, there is fire.  P1
