Okposo contenders, Oilers and Devils talking trade? Nichushkin rumour + more

Many teams have talked to Okposo during the interview period, so it looks like this one won't go too far past July 1st. Among those interested in the scoring winger are the Jets, Wild, Red Wings, Canucks, Kings and Coyotes.

- There's a rumour floating out there suggesting the Oilers might be talking to the Devils in their hunt for a defenseman. Damon Severson's name has been out there for a while, and the odd Adam Larsson rumour has popped up as well.
UPDATE: Hall for Larsson. Done.

- Rumours circulating online suggest Stars forward Valeri Nichushkin could be headed to the KHL. I have a really hard time seeing this one happening. While it's no secret Nichushkin is unhappy with his icetime under Lindy Ruff, he is still seen as having huge NHL upside. He's a darkhorse trade candidate this summer.

- Somewhat surprisingly, 4th line hitting machine Matt Martin is generating a ton of buzz as he prepares to hit the free agent market. The Leafs, Canadiens and Kings have been linked to Martin thus far.
