Hockey and NHL Rumors for Oct 6, 2010

The Vancouver Canucks have traded defenseman Shane O'Brien and forward Dan Gendur to the Nashville Predators for defenseman Ryan Parent and forward Jonas Anderson.  Brochu's take:  This is another "salary cap" trade, where the focus is more on money than actual hockey aspects.  Parent has subsequently been waived by the Canucks.

It's also believed that GM Mike Gillis is working on trading forward Darcy Hordichuk to clear more space.

The Los Angeles Kings have signed forward Jordan Nolan to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Atlanta Thrashers have signed forward Alexander Burmistrov to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The New York Islanders have claimed forward Michael Grabner off waivers from the Florida Panthers.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have claimed forward Mattias Ritola off waivers from the Detroit Red Wings.

There was also many players place on waivers, which you can see here.
