Tampa Bay Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said he doesn't listen to trade rumors. In fact, he said, "I don't feel I should be in a position to comment on somebody who simply has an idea."

But Yzerman's protracted negotiations with Steven Stamkos has spawned, at various times, speculation, even among mainstream media, the All-Star center's rights could be dealt.

The Maple Leafs and Flyers have been the most mentioned, though both Toronto GM Brian Burke (in the Cape Breton Post) and Flyers GM Paul Holmgren (in the Courier-Post of Southern New Jersey) recently said they have no plans to make a pitch, and Yzerman said Sunday he has not been approached and there have been no discussions.
