The rumor has kicked up again on Jay Bouwmeester (Jbo) as a trade target. This rumor has not gotten much attention from our blog and others like Flames Nation that give a little depth in their analysis on the Flames.

It doesn't fit for a lot of reasons but that has not stopped the rumor mill from churning out stories on the Red Wings, Predators, Flyers and even our friendly rivals from the north, the Oilers, from being interested.

The only aspect that can give the rumor some credibility is IF Jbo himself has asked for a trade. There is a possibility of that as despite what many may think his long running record of not being on a playoff team is probably annoying him.
