With Or Without

Bonk out of Montreal?

“According to Gabriel Morency of Team 990, the Montreal Canadiens are close to trade Radek Bonk to the Washington Capitals for a draft pick that would free up cap space to sign J.P. Dumont wich they reportedly offered a 4yr/10m$ contract. And to the same Morency again, coach Carbonneau is willing to let Markov and Ryder go for more offensive and defensive help. Just rumors but i will keep you posted on this one. “

not the greatest web source but the Team 990 did report it.

Trevor Linden staying for one more year!

Reports from Vancouver are saying Trevor Linden has signed for one more year with the Vancouver Canucks. He will be some much needed leaddership on this new look Canucks team. There are no numbers yet, but I am guessing around $750,000 with some bonuses. I will have more later.
