Ducks/Canucks trade, Jokinen waived

I will be blogging shortly after TSN's Countdown to TradeCentre NHL trade deadline special with any rumors that haven't been reported lately.

The Vancouver Canucks have traded forward Mike Brown to the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman Nathan McIver. McIver had cleared waiver earlier Thursday.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have placed forward Jussi Jokinen on waivers.

According to Pierre McGuire on the Team 1040 radio in Vancouver, several NHL teams have been inquiring about Canucks defenseman Shane O'Brien. McGuire reported that it's well known that GM Mike Gillis is shopping O'Brien around the league. Brochu's take: Rumors are that the Toronto Maple Leafs are very interested in him.

Pierre LeBrun is reporting that the Atlanta Thrashers are shopping forward Erik Christensen, and some teams are interested. Brochu's take: LeBrun also has a list of the latest rumors, but nothing new other than Christensen. He could be had for a mid-round pick. Source

Adrian Dater on the Denver Post is reporting reports scouts from the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers were at the Colorado Avalanche-Calgary Flames game. Source
