Barrie, Daley, the latest on the Flyers and Avs + more

Reports emerged on the weekend that pending RFA defenseman Tyson Barrie could be traded by the Avalanche if they fail to resign him. This is not the first time Barrie has seen his name in trade talks, with some close to the scene in Colorado predicting a Barrie trade as early as last season. It would certainly take a lot for the Avs to trade their top puck mover, but it's rumoured the two sides are not on the same page in terms of dollar figures.

What's next for Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton?

The Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau rumours have been simmering for years now, but the rumour mill got fired up a little when word broke out of San Jose that Marleau would consider a deal to the LA Kings, Anaheim Ducks or New York Rangers. Other reports indicate the Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators could be teams Marleau would at least consider as well.

Another three potential suitors have surfaced - rather quietly - over the past weeks and months.
