“Nothing really new” was Tom Poti’s answer when he was asked if there had been any progress in negotiations between his agent, Jay Fee, and Oiler GM Kevin Lowe. Eventually this situation will rectify itself one way or the other, and quite possibly sooner rather than later.
Since the Board has been slow lately I thought I would pass the following rumours along. (One trade the other UFA news)
Just enough time left for me to get in my last licks before the regular season is finally underway. I noticed some noteworthy roster cuts, there’s already an injury or two, and perhaps I’ll throw out a prediction or two.
A bit of a surprise to the Pens organization and fans present at the Icoplex, the Pens pratice facility, on Monday.
The final cuts have just been announced and the roster is down to the required 23 players. The final decisions were the toughest and 6 NHL level players were cut, players that would have made the rosters of several teams in the league.
As expected, the rumors of either (or both) Jason Allison and Tony Amonte to the Rangers continue. Allison, an unsigned restricted free agent has claimed to be unhappy with Boston and wants out bad after an ongoing contract squabble. Amonte has been rumored from everywhere to N.Y. to Detroit to Colorado to Nashville, and it appears (again) he may be on the move.
A few more days until the new season starts! Teams are beginning to narrow down their rosters. The Flyers have reportedly reduced theirs and now the Boston Bruins have narrowed down the size of their roster.
Here are the odds, out of Vegas, for the 2002 Stanley Cup Championship.
The Edmonton Oilers have two more games to play before the new season begins, and yesterday they made another wave of roster cuts. The Oilers go into Cowtown tomorrow with only 29 players left on the preseason team.
Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports that Red Wings goaltender Chris Osgood, who was left unprotected in the upcoming waiver draft, doubts he’ll be selected by another club. Osgood points to his high salary as the reason why he may still be a Red Wing after the waiver draft.
