Sorry Oils fans, no Nylander for you.

Contrary to what has been reported by TSN last night (which was coming from an Edmonton radio station), Michael Nylander has apparently signed a 4-year deal with the WASHINGTON CAPITALS today.

Caps interested in Yashin?

According to many sources and the Washington Post, the Washington Capitals are interested in the services of Alexei Yashin, but only at a discount price.

They want to get him at around $2M per but Yashin’s agent has made it clear the bottom is $3M. If he can be convinced to take less money, the Caps think he will be re-ignited from his laziness alongside fellow russian superstar Alexander Ovechkin.

Tom Preissing to L.A.

According to the Ottawa Sun, the Los Angeles Kings have agreed to a 4-year, 11M$ deal with defensemen Tom Preissing

The Maple Leafs fail

The Maple Leafs missed out on the two players they really needed the most, Ryan Smyth (Colorado Avalanche) and Paul Kariya (St. Louis Blues). They instead signed a 34 year old, who’s a league renowned a**hole, and dressing room cancer to a big contract. Now I sit here writing my 200th article, an article I was hoping to use to announce the Ryan Smyth signing, writing about another failed off-season for the Maple Leafs, and previewing another ninth place finish for the biggest failure since the Chicago Cubs…. I apologize to every fan and employee of the Chicago Cubs organization, I don’t know what I was saying, that was just rude.
