Cheechoo available?

The Beaver County Times & Allegheny Times is reporting that San Jose Sharks forward Jonathan Cheechoo is being shopped. Cheechoo is signed through 2010-11, and makes $3 million a year. The article is also stating that there is a rumor that Cheechoo could be swapped for Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar. The Edmonton Oilers are also reportedly in the running for Cheechoo. Source

Sergei Samsonov cleared waivers on Monday and the Chicago Blackhawks have called him on re-entry waivers. Coach Denis Savard has said that he would only be called up if there were teams interested in picking him up. There's speculation that the Carolina Hurricanes and the San Jose Sharks could pick up the Russian winger. Source

Curtis Joseph continues to be in the rumor mill after his strong performance with Team Canada at the Spengler Cup. The usual teams have been mentioned, but Pittsburgh remains the most hotly rumoured destination.

Gordie Dwyer has been cut by the Portland Pirates (Anaheim Ducks AHL affiliate) and has signed with the Schwenningen Wild Wings of the ASSTEL-Bundesliga in Germany, one division under the DEL. Source
