The New York Islanders are close to signing newly acquired restricted free agent Alexei Yashin to the richest contract in NHL history.
What will it be? I see the media criticize the Rangers when they sign a couple of big UFA’s, and now I see the media criticize the Rangers when they did not sign big UFA players. Well make up your mind, this is not normal. GM Glen Sather chose something new in Rangers history, and it is a tough gutsy move for him.
It’s time for another preview on the Eastern Conference, considering I didn’t agree with the last one done.
Titles of the six articles:
1: “Allison Rumors Still Swirl”
2: “Why Do Teams Want So Much?”
3: “Leafs Must Win This Season Or Risk Losing Face With Fans”
4: “How Do The Players Feel About Lindros??”
5: “LA Is So Close But Yet So Far”
6: “Senators Need a Centermen!”
All seems quiet now about the NHL, although many big names still seem to be lurking in the background. One of those big names is one we have all heard before, Eric Lindros. Sparing you any of the boring details that not need to be said because it is already common knowledge, Eric will not be back in Philadelphia, but will he be anywhere? And is he worth what it will take to get him there?
How does Jason Allison feel? Allison feels like Big Angry Al, and not so Super, so thanks for asking. The Rangers are in the middle of crossroads, which goalie should they get? Sergei Federov could loose his Red Angel Wings and could join Hell’s team in NJ, while Arnott and Allison could get their Wings. The things that are going on this summer are very interesting, too interesting to not talk about.
Articles’ titles are:
1. “Hawks Continue Their Re-signing Frenzy”
2. “2001-2002 Leafs”
3. “Question For Buffalo Sabers Fans?”
The Captain of the Maple Leafs re-signed with the team. The contract is worth 52.5$ million for six years, and it includes a no-trade clause. Mats Sundin is 30 years of age.
With Steve Thomas signing with the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday, things could get very interesting in Toronto.
Since that whole Jagr deal, the Penguins have lowered their yearly payroll down by more than 10 million dollars. In addition to that, the Penguins received around 4.5 million dollars from the Washington Capitals, as part of the Jagr deal. What is Craig Patrick doing now?
