From A trade rumor I want to say is idiotic but is probably just … well, I hope it doesn’t happen. Not for Simmonds anyway.

Meanwhile, 300 km up Highway 2, rumours persist that Edmonton GM Steve Tambellini is shopping one of his four offensive defenceman in an attempt to kickstart the rebuild in Edmonton. We’re hearing Sheldon Souray to Los Angeles — where his children live with his ex-wife, a long distance relationship that Souray has found taxing through two seasons in Northern Alberta. The package coming back would include defenceman Jack Johnson, and we’re guessing a forward with some grit, like a Wayne Simmonds.

    I cant see Dean parting with Simmer…………

    What about chad laRose? Gritty LW, that can put the puck in the net? he is a UFA

      I thought he was a RW. He shoots right anyway. I like him. He’s affordable and “gritty” and all that. But he’s on the small side and we have a lot of those guys right now. I’d rather see what the kids bring.

    Yeah, I checked, Canes have him listed as a center. I thought he was LW, my bad.
