The San Jose Sharks asked Ryane Clowe to waive his no-trade clause and could trade him out of town as soon as Sunday, according to CSNBayArea.com.
The report lists the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers as the top contenders for the 30-year-old power forward. While the Habs shut out the Rangers on Saturday, the other two teams lost in frustrating ways, perhaps making a swap more desirable.
A recent report also placed the Vancouver Canucks in the mix.
ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun reports that the Sharks’ asking price is a first-round pick and a prospect.
