SenShot has learned that General Manager Bryan Murray has held talks with Chicago Blackhawks General Manager Stan Bowman. It is unknown if the talks mean something but it may be linked to something big. The blackhawks are set to re-sign Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, and Duncan Keith to long-term contracts. This mean they have to move some bodies out if they can get under the slaary cap for next year. Rumors are saying it may be Brent Seabrook or Cam Barker. Soem are even suggestign Patrick Sharp could be on the market. I would believe Cam Barker is on Murray’s interest list because he’s the goal-scoring defenseman Ottawa desperately needs.
The return is muddy, but you would think Zee Dictator Murray would likely want to give up Alexandre Picard or Chris Campoli. Barker’s salary is approximately 3.1 mil. If you package Picard (800 K) and maybe Ryan Shannon (700 K) with some sort of draft pick, I think you’ve got a deal.
Remember, the details are sketchy, but this is what’s happening now. Let’s hope this turns out into something.
