Burke: Leafs and Bruins talking trade

Brian Burke, the general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, said on today's Felger and Mazz Show on 98.5 The Sports Hub that he and Peter Chiarelli, the general manager of the Boston Bruins, are talking trade.

No names were mentioned, but the Bruins' interest in defenseman Tomas Kaberle -- a four-time All-Star -- is well-known. Kaberle, who turns 33 in a few weeks, is the type of puck-moving defenseman that Boston needs. He has 3 goals and 33 assists in 56 games this season.

Fueling the Kaberle-to-Boston rumors: Sportsnet.ca reported that Kaberle will only waive his no-trade clause to come to the Bruins.

*The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to wear their great, green, old school St. Pat’s sweaters around St. Patrick’s Day this season.

*Jonathan Quick is on the ice and participating in hockey activity, but isn’t quite ready to return for the Los Angeles Kings.

*This is one of the best things you’ll see today with Vladimir Tarasenko making the 11th birthday celebration for a special little girl.

*The Edmonton Oilers could potentially make a lot of moves at the NHL trade deadline, and unsurprisingly, there is quite the call for them to dump Benoit Pouliot after that bad contract they signed him to a couple of years ago.

*Lyle Richardson is predicting the biggest buyers at the 2017 NHL trade deadline and the Bruins are not among the nine teams listed.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) James Mirtle goes 1-on-1 with Toronto Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello a wide range of subjects for the Athletic up in Toronto.

*Tommy Wingels continues to fight for inclusion in hockey even as he’s gone from the San Jose Sharks to the Ottawa Senators this season.

*For something completely different: A perfect pool trick shot video will blow your mind and probably get a few pool tables ruined with people trying to recreate it.
