It’s that time of the year again where the GMs play and the players relax, at least…most of the players. It must be quite a feeling to be a player…say of Ryan Smyth’s caliber and just sit on the couch, looking at the date and say to yourself “Man, in three days I will be destined to become a millionaire.” How about that huh? Anyway, some teams to look at.
Jim Balsillie is apparently losing the bid. Sure, the NHL will risk moving to Kansas City, but who gets the blame?
And….someone replies, via e-mail, from a rumor monger’s Web site. I’ll call him the rumor monger scout who scouted my articles. Geee, I wonder where he came from.
According to TSN.ca, the Florida Panthers have re-signed Jozef Stumpel, as expected, and the Vancouver Canucks re-signed Jeff Cowan. Stumpel signed for two years worth $4.5M. The Canucks re-signed Jeff Cowan to two years for around $1.5M, total. Also, the Canucks are expected to buy out Marc Chouinard.
TFP reports that The Nashville Predators have traded G Tomas Vokoun to the Florida Panthers for draft picks.
TSN.ca reports a 1st rounder and two second rounders.
TSN.ca is reporting that the Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed Gary Roberts and Mark Recchi. Roberts maintains the same salary he has held in the past two seasons at $2.5M and Recchi signed for $2M.
Some rumors are just getting out of hand. Some are possible, it’s best to just speculate.
The Fourth Period reports that the Boston Bruins have hired Claude Julien as their head coach for next season. Julien was fired from a winning Devils team near the playoffs and will try to stick with Boston
Also, the Bruins have extended Brandon Bochenski’s contract to one year.
According to TSN.ca, the Nashville Predators have allowed the Philadelphia Flyers to negotiate with Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen and signed both to long-term deals. Hartnell is expected to get $25.2M for six years and Timonen $37.8M for six years. In return, the Predators regain the 1st round draft pick previously traded to the Flyers as part of the deal involving Peter Forsberg.
