Canucks, Flames scouting Leafs

According to the Vancouver Province, the Vancouver Canucks sent two scouts to the Toronto Maple Leafs-Carolina Hurricanes game on Tuesday. The Calgary Flames also sent two scouts, along with several others from other teams. It's believed that both teams are keeping a close eye on which players will be available, and also keeping an eye on Mats Sundin. The Canucks could fit Sundin under their cap, but would have to trade somebody off the roster to do that. It's rumoured they are looking closely at Alex Steen and Darcy Tucker. There are also reports that they are interested in Andrew Ladd. Source

Sportsnet's Hockeycentral panel adds that the Flames could be looking at Tucker as well as veteran forward Boyd Devereaux.

The Daily Herald is reporting that the Chicago Blackhawks may be trying to trade goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin. However, Khabibulin's large contract and inconsistent play may prevent him from moving. Source
