Ducks May File Tampering Charges?

James O' Brien of Pro Hockey is saying that the Anaheim Ducks may file Tampering Charges toward a “team that already has gotten to Schultz.” Michael Russo Audio has also speculated that Justin Schultz may have already decided which team he would like to go to on July 1st. Early indications suggest that the Toronto Maple Leafs have the highest odds of landing the coveted UFA. He was drafted in the 2nd Round (43rd Overall) by who else? Leafs GM Brian Burke.

The Bruins recently traded C Zach Hamill to the Washington Capitols for LW Chris Bourque.

This trade probably had no hockey value but just to keep Ray Bourque, Chris Bourque's father, happy. Ray Bourque spent nearly his entire career in Beantown and probably wants his son to play with the same stoied franchise.

Washington wins the trade because they get a great young player for someone who is probably going to be a career minor player. Hamill was drafted 8th overall in the 2007 draft and should have some value

Just on a side note, 18 years from the day Hamill was drafted 8th overall in the 2007 draft, the Bruins made another 8th overall draft pick. Guess who that was: Ray Bourque
