Names to watch for till the deadline

Just a few names to look around until Trade deadline.

Tuomo Ruutu - Has been named like crazy, I see a 85% chance of him being moved. Jim Rutherford's high asking price is preventing him from being moved.
Teams Interested: Flyers, Blackhawks, Leafs, Bruins, Red Wings, Senators

Bryan Allen - Tom Gleason getting signed has made the price of him even higher than it was. Rutherford's asking price is too much for other teams. ('A' Prospect ex: Nazim Kadri + a 1st Rounder or two 1st Rounders.)
Teams Interested: Flyers, Blackhawks, Wings, Blue Jackets

Marek Zidlicky - He was scratched for three straight games. It's not surprising he's not happy in Minnesota. His high salary cap hit ($4Million for one more year) with a modified NTC (which I don't really see him not waiving unless it's to a place like Toronto where they have a boat load of defenseman already) makes GM not too interested in him.
Teams Interested - ?

Brenden Morrow - Great player for the playoffs. Deserves a Cup Ring. Would be great for a playoff bound team. Lingering neck injury is a cause of worry.
Teams Interested - ?

Hal Gill - Hasn't really been shopped a lot but interest is there. Good, composed shutdown D-Man that could help any team.

Luke Schenn - Hasn't been shopped really but has been named in a lot of Toronto media in trade talks.
Teams Interested - ?

Ben Bishop - Lots of rumors of him and lots of teams interested. Lots of Talent, but expiring contract has teams worried.
Teams Interested - Leafs, Lightning, Devils, Hurricanes, Ducks

Josh Harding - Same as above ^

Evgeni Nabokov - Lots of interest in him but apparently Garth Snow wants at least a 2nd Round Pick in exchange.
Teams Interested: ?

Dominic Moore - Good veteran that teams may want for their third line.
Teams Interested: Penguins

Jeff Carter - Young player, can be good, but horrible contract.
Teams Interested: LA, Habs, NYR, Leafs
