Rumor Mill

From the Ottawa Sun:

The talk is Toronto GM Brian Burke has been trying to entice the New York Islanders, who are drafting No. 1 overall and the Bolts, picking No. 2, to trade their top pick in exchange for D Tomas Kaberle and the Maple Leafs' No. 7 overall selection. "That's not going to be enough to get it done," said one league executive. "Burke is going to have to come up with more. You can't give a No. 1 pick away. It means a lot to the franchise."

Thanks to Spector for that one: Once again the Canadian media still want Tavares as a Maple Leaf, not going to happen. That league executive is right, it will take a lot more. I'm almost certain the Islanders will draft Tavares.

Why do I say that? Because Tavares visited not just Snow, and Wang, but Weight as well. The quality visit he had certainly puts him ahead of the others, in my opinion. If I have to make a percentage, I'll go 40% Tavares, 30% Hedman, 30% Duchene.

Ahh three more weeks.
