Anton Babchuk Should be Moved this Week

Craig Custance from The Sporting News is reporting that Anton Babchuk should be traded before the end of the week.  In a recent chat with Jim Rutherford in Traverse City, the Carolina GM said that three teams were interested in the high scoring defenseman. 

Right now there are three teams showing serious interest in the Russian defenseman, although one team has the inside track. With Carolina's roster basically set for this season, look for Carolina to ask for a prospect, most likely a defenseman, in return for Babchuk.

"I would expect that something is going to happen with him prior to camp this week," Rutherford said.
