Now that the NHL Draft and free agent frenzy is winding down, trade rumors are starting to pick up again. Here is the latest news on Vincent Lecavalier, James Reimer and Evander Kane.
Toronto Sun: Lance Horby reports James Reimer made his trade request to general manager Dave Nonis at the NHL entry draft. Reimer was looking at Winnipeg as his potential landing spot but the asking price for Reimer is high and Nonis will not trade him unless that demand is met. For now, it looks like Reimer is stuck in Toronto.
Vincent Lecavalier to Ottawa Rumors: Rumor from Flyers’ reporter Tim Panaccio, the Ottawa Senators may be talking to the Flyers about taking Vincent Lecavalier off their hands.
Lecavalier to OTT? Sens want Flyers 2 pick up salary and want something else for taking him off their hands … #vinnysagacontinues

Evander Kane: He has been rumored to be available since last season’s NHL trade deadline. Pierre LeBrun has reported Kane is avaible but the asking price is very high. The Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks are the two most interested teams.
LeBrun: No one has impression #NHLJets want to leave Philly with Evander Kane dealt. He's available, but would come at a really high price.
