NHL and Hockey Rumors for Feb 6, 2009

The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed defenseman Staffan Kronwall on re-entry waivers.

According to TSN, Tomas Kaberle and his agent may be preparing a list of teams that he is willing to be traded to. Also, it's possible that the Leafs could shop both forwards Mikhail Grabovski and Dominic Moore if they don't get them signed. Brochu's take: Grabovski will be signed, but it's unknown if Moore and his family history will have any impact on Burke's decision.

The two Ottawa Senators most likely to be traded at the deadline appear to be defenseman Filip Kuba and forward Chris Neil, who are both due to be unrestricted free agents this summer.

The Edmonton Journal is reporting a rumor that Erik Cole may be traded to the Boston Bruins. Oilers pro scout Dave Semenko has been watching the last two Boston Bruins games. There's speculation that the Oilers could be looking at forward Vladimir Sobotka, defenseman Matt Hunwick and Matt Lashoff. Brochu's take: Edmonton sees themselves as buyers, so I don't think they will trade Cole...just yet. And Boston are definitely playoff contenders, but giving up Hunwick would be a big mistake.
