Interesting notes from Kevin Allen

From Kevin Allen of USA Today:

With training camp now just a week away, here’s what you should expect to happen over the next few days:

1. The Atlanta Thrashers hope to land another defenseman, possibly even unrestricted free agent Marek Malik, although they are considering other options. They still plan to give rookie Zach Bogosian the opportunity to make the team.

2. The Anaheim Ducks expect to deal defenseman Mathieu Schneider ($5.75 million) to get their budget in line, and to make room for the signing of Teemu Selanne.

3. The San Jose Sharks might trade defenseman Kyle McLaren. With the acquisition of Dan Boyle and Rob Blake, McLaren seems expendable, particularly since he will be unrestricted next summer.

Allen knows his stuff as much as anyone, so this list is about as accurate as you will get.
