07:27 AM ET 11.27 | If the Flames make a move soon, as is expected by many, who is it that goes? [Darren Dreger]: Teams are calling about Mikael Backlund, no surprise there, specifically the Carolina Hurricanes. The Hurricanes are looking for a third line centre as well as a puck moving defenceman. ... [Pierre LeBrun]: Busy times in Carolina. The Hurricanes have a couple of players on their trade block including Tuomo Ruutu, Jiri Tlusty and Tim Gleason, who it sounds like will be the first player traded out of Carolina. Gleason has a contract with a couple more years left on it at $4 million but if they can move him, I believe then they could turn around and trade for a guy like John-Michael Liles. Liles has been parked in Toronto because of his contract. For the Hurricanes to take Liles, they need the Leafs to take Ruutu.

Uh oh Danny.

Does Ruutu go as a side with Turkey?

No, but Ruutu works really well as a sidekick for Roto.

Tuutu, Tlusty and Gleason. Vanna, I want to buy a vowel.

Not quite the law firm of Staal, Staal and Staal.

Ruutu's contract is too big for Toronto to take back.I know the two teams are talking, but from what I understand something much, much larger is at play here than Ruutu and Gleason.Unless, of course, that hairy drunk guy at the bottom of a Union Station stairwell the other day really wasn't an assistant GM for the Leafs...

Danny. You have got to get over this irrational desire to have #3 traded. Jim Rutherford wasnt born yesterday, he wont take Dion.

Now if you are thinking a Ward-Reimer basis for a bigger deal, you may be on to something

A great line, but with all of these clever people, not a turkey in the bunch

Turdrunto could be the real Roto-Ruuturs. Especially if they broght Yucko back too.
