What We're Hearing This Morning

1) As we await a new post from FAUXRUMORS, we at FAUXRUMORS 2 want to discuss some rumors we have heard today and haven't yet discussed with our other bloggers on the site.

2) We're told that the rumor that Daniel Alfredsson will be traded at some point soon is a bunch of crap. Although discussions HAVE taken place, a well placed source tells FAUXRUMORS 2 that the closest that any of those discussions came was with the NY Islanders who offered Mike York and Trent Hunter. However, it never materialized for a variety of reasons

3) Another somewhat less of a sexy rumor surrounds the Flyers former bench coach, Ken Hitchcock. Contrary to all the talk of a Phoenix connection, we're told that secret negotiations have begun with another Western Conference team, the Blue Jackets. Apparently Jackets GM McClean isn't pleased with the job Gerard Gallant is doing, and is seriously considering a change in leadership.

4) The hitch(no pun) is whether Flyers owner Ed Snyder will allow the former coach, still under contract to bolt to the mid west. Our source says its very likely, but may take a few weeks, and an interim coach may take over if Gallant is fired before Hitchcock is released from his Philly obligation

5) No other credible rumors are currently circulating. certainly if we come across any, you, our loyal readers will be first to know! Keep it here for the latest!
