New, comments

Several news outlet are reporting that the Bruins will make a trade invloving Phil Kessel sometime within the next week. According to Toronto sports talk radio host and TSN.ca columnist Darren Dreger, Toronto GM Brian Burke is growing impatient with the trade talks and could essentially place a deadline on the Bruins through the threat of an offer sheet. The Nashville Predators, Minnesota Wild, and New York Rangers have also been rumored to be in the market for Kessel. At this point, it appears the Leafs are the frontrunners with the Predators trailing behind. The Leafs are reported to have offered the Bruins 2 first round picks, another draft pick, and a prospect, while the Preds are rumored to be offering a package that includes KHL forward Alexander Radulov.
