One More Rumor - Trade Deadline '09

The anticipation is so palpable, I could just spit. Latest from the rumor mill concerning the Capitals is Minnesota Wild's Marian Gaborik. It is an interesting rumor because Gaborik is just coming off of hip surgery. Per USA Today:
Gaborik has resumed skating on his own, a step forward in his recovery from left hip surgery. The two-time All-Star right wing will go through a major physical test on March 1 to assess his progress, with the possibility of returning to the team later in the month. Gaborik has appeared in only six games this season.

Chris Pronger's name is also circling but not around the Capitals, Pittsburgh and Ottawa are possible landing spots. Wait, Ottawa? Hmm.

In the only game of the night featuring the Colorado Avalanche at New York Islanders, both Bill Guerin and Brendan Witt are out of the line up. Is a trade emminent?
