Rumours for Friday...
Johnson to St. Louis (e3)
Sources from St. Louis told me today that Jack Johnson may be traded to the St. Louis Blues. With Erik Johnson and Jack Johnson on their defense, St. Louis feels they are ready for the future. The one deal I have heard so far is that St. Louis will trade Eric Brewer and an unnamed player to Carolina for Jack Johnson.

Marleau to Canucks heating up (e4)
My main sources in Vancouver tell me that the Canucks have made a counter offer to the Sharks for Marleau. The offer is now Morrison, Salo, and a 3rd round pick to San Jose for Marleau and defenseman Christian Erhoff. This deal is very close to being official.

Thornton requests trade?
One source told me today that Joe Thornton has requested a trade because his linemates, Mark Bell and Jonathan Cheechoo have some issues right now. Mark Bell may not play because of his hit-and-run incident, and Cheechoo has injured his knee. Both of them feel they won't perform well at all. One rumor I heard was: Thornton and Scott Hannan to Canucks for Linden, Ohlund, Cooke, and a first round pick. Another was Thornton and a second round pick to Carolina for Eric Staal.

More news later!
