The Toronto Maple Leafs have at least five offers on the table for defenceman Tomas Kaberle.

At this point, none of the existing proposals is considered strong enough to close on a deal,  however, that's not to say the Leafs wouldn't accept one of the offers with some tweaking as the day unfolds.

Sources say the offers range from roster players to draft picks.

Toronto has time on its side as well, as Kaberle's no-trade clause,  which lifts on Friday, won't be reapplied until mid-August.

One team familiar with the trade discussions says the Leafs have asked for a first round draft pick, however Leafs management maintains, a first round pick in return for Kaberle is not a priority.

Panthers looking to deal at Draft

Florida Panthers' general manager Dale Tallon is shopping 15th overall.

He's willing to package another player with it to attract an offensive forward, or would consider a collection of draft picks in return.

Likely a trade that happens on the floor just before the selection, although a number of teams are interested.

Changes to the Head Shot Rule

The NHL Board of Governors are meeting today in Los Angeles.

The Board is expected to approve a five minute major penalty for the east-west blindside hit, which will officially put it with the recently added supplemental discipline in the rule book for next season.
