TSN: During the first intermission of today’s Sharks-Penguins game, Darren Dreger and John Ferguson Jr reported the following:
Atlanta Thrashers GM Don Waddell is reportedly scouting today’s Hamilton Bulldogs-Toronto Marlies game, possibly to look over prospects that might be offered up for Marian Hossa. The Montreal Canadiens are believed interested in Hossa and the Bulldogs are their farm team.
Alex Tanguay wants out of Calgary and has on two occasions this season requested a trade. While Montreal’s Michael Ryder is often linked to Tanguay in rumors Dreger suggests the Flames want a more significant player like Olli Jokinen or Robert Lang. Glenn Healy notes Montreal has been scouting the Flames for some time and believes the Habs will land Tanguay. Dreger also suggested the Canadiens might try to land both Hossa and Tanguay, given their depth in young assets.
