Lightning lock up O'Brein

According to

“The Tampa Bay Lightning re-signed defenceman Shane O’Brein to a
$2 million, two-year deal”

Florida Panthers after Martin Gerber?

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Florida Panthers have been trying to acquire Martin Gerber and his 3.7 million dollar contract from the Ottawa Senators.

Rafalski to test free agent market???

The New York Post is reporting that the devils resigning of Brian Rafalski is “no longer a slam dunk.” Rafalski has the same agent as Kimmo Timonen who was able to sign a lucrative deal with the Flyers in the past week.

Naslunds season in review, is it still his team?

It was a solid, if unspectacular season for the Vancouver captain, but a surprisingly gritty playoff performance could signal a sign of changes to come.

The Leafs DESPERATELY need a new goaltender

A few statistics on the Leafs situation.

Is Huet expendable ???

With the emergence of Carey Price and the lack of quality goaltending on the free agent market, Mr. Gainey should entertain offers on Huet.

Manny Fernandez to Boston

I know, I know, Eklund sucks, but according to him Manny Fernandez has been traded to the Bruins. More details to come, I wonder what is going the other way.. Is this the answer for Boston’s goalie problems, I don’t think so, what do you think?

Colaiacovo Re-Signs with the Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that they have re-signed Carlo Colaiacovo to a 3 year deal.
Financial terms undisclosed at the moment.

Giguere Signs! is reporting that the Anaheim Ducks have re-signed goaltender and one time Conn Smythe winner(2003). 

Naslund to Philly?

Reports state that the Vancouver Canucks are hot on BC native Kyle Turris, and who can blame them? He plays like Yzerman and Sakic, both BC natives. (Yzerman is Cranbrook born, Napean raised). So what will it take?

Leafs Logjam on Defence

I would like to address the Leafs current Defensive corps. It seems to be in a logjam with too many quality and overpaid defencemen. Last season’s top 6 looked like this:

Rumors from Leaf land

The is reporting that the Maple Leafs are still a ways away from resigning defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo. In order to protect his rights the Leafs will have to make him a qualifying offer but the First of July.

Of grater interest is that at the bottom of the article there is a statement that the Leafs are unlikely to bring back “unrestricted free agents Bates Battaglia, Mike Peca, J.S. Aubin, Yanic Perreault, Travis Green and Jeff O’Neill.”

Ferguson with some competition?

According to the fan590 wednesday night, Ferguson may have some competition for his GM job. All things seemed to be locked up for the 40 year old GM, but it turns out that that contract offer may have been put on a holt with the firing of John Muckler.
