Some of the perhaps lesser known hockey rumour sources were letting loose Sunday morning with some interesting tidbits.
@iamhockey1 ,who has a solid track record, says the Leafs have started negotiating with JVR, a free agent at the end of the season. Word is he’s seeking 5 years x $7 million but may take less as he wants to stay and win in Toronto. As well, it was reported John Tavares, a big looming UFA, would consider a short term deal in Toronto but the Islanders remain his preference, and that GM Lou Lamoriello has agreed to a 2-year extension, but it won’t be announced until the new year. And the Leafs and Pens are still talking about a deal for Tyler Bozak.
That’s not all!
@Rumorbreak reports the Leafs are preparing an offer to Carolina for defender Justin Faulk…Gardiner, Kapanen and first round picks could head the other way.
Who knows if any of this comes to fruition…but it wasn’t your typical Sunday morning in December as far as the rumour mill goes!
