With training camps getting closer and closer, teams are trying to finish their business up as soon as they can. Here is the latest:

Canucks GM Mike Gillis has made it very clear that he is open to trading one of his defensemen (Kevin Bieksa) but knows he does have some time and won't rush a trade if he doesn't get what he wants.

Rumor has it the Canucks want a top six forward or a couple of line 2/3 forwards as well as prospects/picks. As of right now it appears the Sabres are very interested in Bieksa's services.

Sticking with the Canucks now it is believed Mayson Raymond is asking in the two/two and a half million per season range, causing a problem for the Canucks as they don't want to pay him that kind of money.

Personally I think a player with Mayson Raymond's speed, skill and potential is well worth the money.

It is believed the Kings and Ilya Kovalchuk are getting "closer" to an agreement but I still think that he stays in New Jersey.

Like I suggested yesterday if the Sharks can't acquire Kevin Bieksa, or Tomas Kaberle they could turn their attention to Denis Grebeshkov.
