NHL and Hockey Rumors for Jan 19, 2009

Here are some of the latest hockey and NHL rumors from Bruce Garrioch of the Toronto Sun: (Hmmm, is he getting two cheques for this?)

St. Louis Blues forward Keith Tkachuk is likely to be dealt at the March 4 trade deadline. The 36-year-old Massachusetts native would like to be sent to the Boston Bruins, but the B's are pushing the salary cap and GM Peter Chiarelli would like another defenseman instead of a forward. Brochu's take: Let the Keith Tkachuk sweepstakes commence!

There are rumours that the Atlanta Thrashers are about to trade defenseman Mathieu Schneider to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Maxim Afinogenov. Brochu's take: While this makes sense for Buffalo, I'm not sure why Atlanta would do this deal. Afinogenov is only a shadow of the player he was three years ago.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, the Tampa Bay Lightning have an interest in Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Ian White. Source
