Tarnstrom is rewarded 1.6 million.

After its all said and done I was wrong. (Thank God) It’s far enough under the 2 million plus estimate I gave. That should be in the Pens goals and a contract should follow soon.

How Will the East Stack Up?

The East is looking better than either Conference has looked in a very long time. It should be quite competitive with most of the teams fighting fo a playoff spot. This is how i believe the divisions will be stacked up in the East this year…

The moves that were forgotten

Red Wings Sign A Pair. is reporting that the Detroit Red Wings have dipped into the free agent market, signing free agent defenseman Andreas Lilja and forward Don MacLean.

Luongo the Loser

Sportsnet reports that Luongo of the Panthers was awarded or punished with $3.2 million next season.

Milbury, Worst GM in History??

The Islanders are pretty much the laughing stock of the league. The past 20 years has been all downhill since their 4 cups.

You can pretty much blame it all on one man… Mike Milbury.
