The return of the National Hockey League means a revival of the game's constant companion, the trade rumor.
For many trade rumor junkies, almost no scrap of speculation is too outlandish.
Some fans are so beguiled by the murmurings of "inside sources" that they hardly seem interested in the games themselves.
We don't start rumors at About.com. No insiders here.
But once in a while we compile the latest chatterings from around the hockey world.
If a report appears to have a specific source, we cite it. But we can't attest to the credibility of anything you see under the "trade rumor" label.
With that caveat, here's a round-up of current NHL trade rumors.
