According to the rumor producer ESPN insider. Dion Phaneuf could be headed to the tri-state area. Now the problem with ESPN Insider is that you have to pay for it to look at the full rumor and they give you a preview of the first sentence to entice the reader to buy it the sentence says the following.
''Stud Blueliner could be getting closer to Avery.''
Take this for what it is but if this is true and if someone of prominence comes the other way I'm all for it. So if anyone out there has access to ESPN Insider please enlighten us on the situation, till then all we can do is speculate and make up what the trade could be.
