Everyone’s heard of the big names on the market. Fedorov, Hatcher, Selanne, Robitaille, Potvin, Prospel, McCarty, Leetch, deVries. But what about the smaller, less heralded guys who are no less effective? Here’s a list of 12 forwards and 7 defensemen on the free agent market that you hear absolutely nothing about. They aren’t necessarily in best to worst order, more alphabetical for what team they played for last season. Oh, a couple of them might not be moving or might have some circumstances around them I’m not aware of, I was using a free agent list. If I screwed up on some, don’t chew me out. Chew out the person who made the list.
TSN.ca claims that reports coming out of Detroit are saying that Dominik Hasek has been in close contact with the management of the Red Wings regarding him coming back into the Red Wings lineup for next season.
Dallas Stars GM Doug Armstrong has confirmed that Captain Darian Hatecher will not be given a new offer. So we know that Hatcher won’t be returning to the Stars, so where will he go? Toronto perhaps?
Jagr to the Rangers for Lindros, Bure, Carter, Nedved and every other loser on the Rangers roster. Thats the rumor. Well I’m here to tell you it’s all a load of steaming cow manure. Here’s why…
No big trades, no Mad Mike surprises, and the teams who I think did a very good job in the 1st round.

Popular NHL assistant coach dies
By ERIC DUHATSCHEK
Globe and Mail Update
Nashville — They say the measure of a man is the number of friendships he’s developed in his lifetime. If that is indeed the case, then Roger Neilson – the Ottawa Senators’ assistant coach who passed away Saturday afternoon in Peterborough, Ont. after a lengthy battle with cancer at the age of 69 – may have been one of the most beloved men to walk the face of the earth.
FAN590 is reporting that a Jaromir Jagr for Eric Lindros deal may be going down soon. The deal may also take a few days, or weeks, to get worked on.
The Phoenix Coyotes have traded defenceman Danny Markov and a conditional draft pick to Carolina for defencemen David Tanabe and Igor Knyazev, TSN has learned.
The Florida Panthers have traded their 2003 first overall selection to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Mikael Samuelsson and the third overall pick in the 2003 draft, TSN has learned.
Today is the day most have been waiting for. Draft time, but this draft seems to be the biggest of them all….. With a great order of kids going deep into the draft.
But the kids aren’t the only news, it’s the trades that are rumored to go down at 1:00pm Eastern. This should be one of the best drafts to watch…. You just know somthing big is going to happen. So let’s get ready.
