07:29 AM ET 10.22 | The season may be in its early stages, but some teams are already looking to deal. The Detroit Red Wings are among the teams believed to be eager to make a move. The Wings need to create some cap space and sources say Jordin Tootoo is in play. ... Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs are willing to sweeten the pot to get John-Michael Liles back in the National Hockey League and off of the Leafs' books. Toronto will retain a significant portion of Liles's salary for the remainder of his contract to encourage a trade. Liles, currently with the AHL's Toronto Marlies, carries a $3.875 mill. cap hit through 2015-2016. He has a modified no-trade clause, which includes a list of 12 teams, submitted during the summer, that he would accept a trade to. However, at this point, Liles is more than willing to consider all NHL interest.

Trade him straight up for Brian Campbell. Send Paul Ranger back to Sport Chek. And it would be great if that captain who happens to be a defenceman and can't play the puck in his own zone would disappear from the 416 sometime soon...

Hehehehehe. We can offer you a plethora of D-man who cant play in their own end right now

Watching Cleary, he's taking up space. As far as Franzen he'll get hurt soon like he always does. But I like Tootoo, he earns his money.

I don't have Phantomphan to pick on anymore, so I have to rib somebody.

What are they going to do with Maatta? He's been pretty good, but he has another year of eligibility for Juniors. If they keep him then what will they do with Bortuzzo and Despres?

Sure. Why don't you ask the Panthers to throw in next year's 1st round pick into the deal while you're at it. Nice, wet dream to have though.
