Rumerz: 30 Hours Away…

We’re about 30 hours away from what has by far become the most entertaining event of the Montreal Canadiens season: a visit to the sugar shack with uncle Hal Gill! He’s flying back up to take all the kids (Habs)!

Apparently Hal has now become a rapping sensation in Nashville! All his rhymes are about lying down on the PK in Montreal! His debut tape (he keeps it real) entitled “Lying down be hard yo” is now available on the Predators official website!

Time to get serious. We all know I’m referring to the trade deadline here. Who’s staying, who’s going, that’s what we all want to know. Brace yourselves people, with Sir Tomas-Kaberle-is-a-good-idea at the helm, we’re in for a hell of a ride….

And with that, here are the hottest Rumerz on Twitter for you to feast on. Enjoy!

Habs are shopping Tomas Plekanec. Looking for a player for player deal. Rumors have him going to Florida for Jonathan Huberdeau.

SIZZLE SAYS: Here’s what Gauthier and Gainey are really doing until 3pm tomorrow.

Geoff Molson is acting GM until the end of the season. Pierre Gauthier has no power to make any moves. Also, S. Savard is involved in day to day operations

SIZZLE SAYS: I actually believe Geoff Molson as GM would make Gauthier look like Amanda Seyfried to a drunk on St-Paddy’s day. There’s a good lad, um, lass…huh?

Andrei Kots to Nashville for Roman Josi + pick. Habs want Tootoo.

SIZZLE SAYS: PG and BG are huge fans of the Swiss national team’s D-corps. Team Swiss Unite!

San Jose interested in Rene Bourque and AK

SIZZLE SAYS: Oh Rene, you had us all fooled. Wait, no, actually you never did.

Habs still in the running for D. Brassard, though Tampa now has the inside track

SIZZLE SAYS: Yawwwwn. In other news, I just opened a box of Cracker Jack for the first box in five years. It’s still gross.

Habs will retain Moen. Though they haven’t contacted his agent at all

SIZZLE SAYS: Goat will have to serenade Travis for him to stay.

Not much huh? I can honestly say I expected more from these rumor-mongers at this time of the year. Stay tuned for the Aftermath this week! Enjoy the madness folks!

Ryan Getzlaf is still Habs number one priority. Some combo of Subban, Pleks, Kots, Weber, Gallagher, Leblanc, picks.

SIZZLE SAYS: Combo also includes entire 2011-2012 roster, a Starscream transformer, and one of those pen’s you can write upside down with.

If Habs land Getzlaf, they will go after Kings’ Penner to try and re-create old chemistry

SIZZLE SAYS: Brilliant! Can we also bring Gretzky and Kurri out of retirement? Hmm, actually, can we? Seriously.

No more Cammy Rumerz

Happy Monday to all!

Joe Sizzle

First off, I’d like to clear something up. I received several e-mails after my last Rumerz column saying I was a fake, a fraud, etc. etc.

To be clear, I am not an inside trade rumor source. These are not my rumors. What we do at PB, is collect the best/hottest Habs related trade rumors off Twitter, and comment on them. So instead of you scouring the net for your Habs rumor fix, it’s all right here for you.

‘Nuff of that, here goes the Rumerz:

Habs interested in Stoll, J.Johnson. Also rumor of a Gill for Penner deal straight up.

SIZZLE SAYS: Good ol’ Hal Gill. Gonna miss the friendly giant. Remember how great he was in this movie?

Habs talking to ‘Canes interested in T Ruutu, Gleason/Allen, Sutter

SIZZLE SAYS: Yes more useless D! Ruutu/Sutter sounds good though. Pick a smurf Rutherford, any smurf.

Oilers want Weber or Campoli, offering Peckham/Eager

Price + PK for Getzlaf, Hiller, Fowler

Habs interested in Paul Stastny, Pleks + pick+ D-Man

Habs looking to deal A. Kots at deadline

SIZZLE SAYS: Absolutely. Trade a big winger who hits and consistently scores 20+ goals a year. Who needs him!
