SAN JOSE — Sharks veteran forward Ryane Clowe sounded like a man at peace Monday whether trade rumors swirling around him prove to be true or not.

With a no-trade clause in his contract, Clowe and his agent are part of the process as general manager Doug Wilson considers offers from nearly a dozen teams reportedly interested in signing Clowe, whose contract expires June 30. Multiple sources are reporting that a deal could happen as early as today.

"I'm aware of what's going on and anything happening with me has to go through me, so we'll see," Clowe said, declining to say whether he thought a deal would happen or not. "I don't want to give a percentage or anything. Would I be surprised? Probably not. I wouldn't be shocked.

"If something didn't happen and I stayed here, I'd handle it just like I handled the last three games," he said. "I'd play my ass off just like I have."

A newspaper in Clowe's home province of Newfoundland reported Monday that Clowe will be dealt to the Philadelphia Flyers. Other teams reportedly in the hunt include the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, Vancouver Canucks and Minnesota Wild.

Clowe, 30, talked about the number of teams showing interest despite the fact he is still looking for his first goal of the season after averaging just over 20 the past four seasons.

"If you look at it, I figure I probably play my best hockey down the stretch and into the playoffs so that's probably what teams are looking for," he said. "You look at it the other way, wow, this guy has no goals this year. It's kind of funny teams want him. But overall, I think you look at the body of work over the last four or five years and I like to think I've been pretty consistent."

Several reports said Clowe and his agent, Kent Hughes, were interested in a trade-and-sign with a contract extension in place when Clowe arrives with his new team.

"If I go somewhere, I'm not going to sign unless I see potential, but it's definitely something I'd be open to," Clowe said. "On the other hand, if it had to come down somewhere as a rental it wold probably be to a team that's a top team looking at making a run. We'll see."

Clowe indicated it has taken a while for him to be able to deal with his situation this calmly.

"Sometimes you get to a point where you just come to grips with it," he said. "I didn't know if the last three games could have been my last game here. That's always a possibility. In a way it's sad. I figure it came to the point where whatever the future holds, I'm ready for it."
