Edmonton is fairly disappointed with MA Bergeron and he is on the block. They are running low with patience on Robbie Schremp as well. Apparently Edmonton has called LA, who is looking to make a deal about a Visnovsky for Bergeron and Schremp deal. This would be a good deal for both teams, but Visnovsky is not on the top of the trade list for LA. Getting rid of Conroy is
the priority but won't happen until Alyn McCauley gets back.

Boston is still looking for goaltending help and the name of Vesa Toskala has come up but the Sharks want to give up Nabakov. There is still some sanity to a Murray for Nabakov deal but it won't happen right away.

Also, straight from Tampa Bay, what has been heard from my source is that Vinny Lecavalier is NOT getting dealt. The deal that is on the table is Alex Tanguay and Tim Ramholt for Martin St. Louis and a pick. Calgary is starting to pick things up but Tangs has not lived up to the hype yet. Iginla is still looking for help and Calgary has a defenseman that they can comes the Craig Conroy rumors again...
Lowe looking to bring in an offensive Defenseman to Edmonton?
Here's a list of offensive defencemen Lowe might be looking at in a trade: Tampa Bay's Dan Boyle, Florida's Mike Van Ryn, Lubomir Visnovsky in L.A., Boston's Paul Mara and Ottawa's Chris Phillips, who is an unrestricted free agent in July. What they need is a puck-distributor like a Matt Carle in San Jose or a John-Michael Liles in Colorado.
