Three rumors I would like to start about the Buffalo Sabres

In this age of media and bloggers it has become the norm to have unsubstantiated rumors made up in an effort to increase readership. It is in that vein that I have come up with three of my own, that I believe the Sabres will do. I may just be a little early in my rumors, because Murray has only been on the job a few days, and hasn't had time to read DBTB yet, but here goes.

1. After the recent comments by Mikhail Grigorenko and his refusal to report to the Q, Tim Murray will aim to show the team who is in charge and will attempt to publicly trade him. Even though Pat Lafontaine has discussed the situation with him and convinced him to report, the world will be abuzz with trade rumors for the kid. The offer: Grigorenko to Calgary for their 2nd round pick in 2014 and Max Reinhart.

In the end, they will claim they were unable to make an adequate deal and be forced to keep him.

2. Tim Murray jumps on the phone while fielding offers for Grigorenko and runs into an offer he can't refuse for Ryan Miller. After stoning the team twice this year, the Capitols have made Miller their target. The offer: Miller for 2014 first round pick, 2015 2nd round pick, Defenceman John Carlson, Michal Neuvirth and prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov.

Murray has the paperwork sent over before he hangs up.

3. In a desperate move by the Nashville Predators, they offer their 6th round pick in 2014 for Ville Leino, This is conditional upon Ville being able to actually play at least 20 games in the remainder of the season.

Bonus trade, this one is an E5, Drew Stafford is being pursued by the Montreal Canadians, the only hold up is trying to convince Danny Briere to waive his no trade clause.

These are rock solid rumors that you can take to the bank. Lets see how many can be picked up and become E5's.

What rumors would you like to start? You know to give Murray a helping hand.
