Rumours & Updates: 2/12

On: The Jokinen Situation-posted 2/12, 3:00 pm et
The Ottawa Senators are trying to hammer out a deal over the Olympic trade freeze, that would land Panthers' centreman Olli Jokinen in the nation's capital. The Senators are willing to send a defenseman, namely Chris Phillips, and future draft picks. It's not yet known whether or not that will be enough to land the Finnish 27-year-old.
Additional Update: Martin Havlat's name continues to come up, and the Senators would be interested in making a Jokinen for Havlat swap. However, Martin Havlat is currently on the IR indefinitely, which means the Senators cannot deal him until he is healthy and back in the line-up. This means the Senators would have to wait to make their move. Ottawa may wait until the deadline, when they would likely have Havlat back into their line-up, and then make the deal. However, with a few other teams who would love to add a players of Jokinen's quality, the Senators may be pressured to work around that to land him. Other teams to mention, once again, are Montreal and Calgary.

On: The Nashville "D" Situation
A source out of Nashville reports that the Predators are "absolutely looking to shore up their blueline," but will not sacrifice future to do so. Nashville was interested in Brendan Witt and still is, however the Caps asking price was a little too high. The source is also suggesting that Witt is becoming a very hot commodity, with many teams looking to add some defensive depth. An update is expected when the Olympic trade freeze is lifted.

Montreal Looking to Improve Offense
A source out of Montreal is reporting that the Montreal Canadiens are talking to a number of teams in an attempt to improve their offensive roster. The Canadiens are said to be interested in Florida's Olli Jokinen. The Brad Richards rumours will not go away, and the source is reporting that perhaps that rumour can now be taken more seriously than ever before. The Canadiens are loading up for a playoff spot battle with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Atlanta Thrashers, and Boston Bruins. The Canadiens are the current holders of that 8th position in the East, however sit only one point ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and only two ahead of Atlanta and Boston. The source is also suggesting that there may be a battle between Toronto and Montreal for Chicago's Tyler Arnason and Mark Bell. The Canadiens may be shopping Sheldon Souray, and Mike Ribeiro.

I don't see why the Leafs cant make a run at Jokinen. Allison needs to be moved, Antropov, and Czerkawski. JFJ should at least look into that.

Im going to be a little more realistic and say Mark Bell or Arnason would be fantastic.

We need something done to make sure we keep 8th position. I do not think we will hold on with our current roster.

I really don't think Richards will be moving from Tampa, or Jokinen from Florida.

I think its safe to say a Canadian team will win the cup this year, with Vancouver, Calgary, and Ottawa all looking really strong.

Hey NTR, is Havlat a possibility? Could you give us a bit about him?

I have had a few other questions about Havlat, so I will do.
