Would be an interesting journeyman player (for the right price) that may help take our team from the O’Connell carnage along with our other pickups.

Shanahan in Montreal??

Acording to Renaud Lavoie (from RDS) Brendan Shanahan might be interested to come in Montreal

Unrestricted Free Agency Begins! What it Means to Your Pool

I like a lot of things that some teams were doing yesterday, and I am more than a little surprised at the amount of action in Day 1 of the UFA season. In fact, this action will pressure the quiet teams to get moving and scoop up what remains out there before someone else does, so it will be a while yet before things calm down. Here are the some of the signings with impact, from a fantasy perspective…

Possible Solution For Leafs

After the signings of Pavel Kubina and Hal Gill the

Leafs are in quite a pickle, here is my solution:

What's Left for Gainey

For many habs fans out there, Arnott was the answer. However he signed in Nashville. It was also speculated that Gainey offered Elias a contract but Elias elected to stay in New Jersey.

In Bob We Trust

Now I noticed that the Habs have not done anything yet in the free agency market and I have heard it from the Leafs fans but they don’t understand the Canadiens.

Vancouver Canucks Assistant Coaching Job

The Vancouver Canucks need two quality assistant in 2 months ! Possibities are: Kevin Dinees & Rick

Numbers on Toronto

So what's next for JFJ

Last year, I was not upset at any Leafs moves (except maybe not buying out Belfour). Frankly, it was a transition year, and I knew it would be painful. JFJ went out there and took some risks to try to ice a competitive team. For the most part he succeeded.

Tellqvist and Tucker Offered In Deal?

Hockeybuzz.com is reporting that the Leafs offered

Darcy Tucker and Mikael Tellqvist to the Oilers in

exchange for Chris Pronger, here is the link:

Rangers re-sign Straka

TSN

Domi is on waivers, No option for Belfour and Roberts is coming back!

The “Fan 590″ has announced that Domi has been put on waivers and if he is not picked up he will be bought out.

Belfour’s option will not be picked up so he will also be bought out.

Domi bought out

I think it’s appropriate I write the final Tie Domi article on HTR, as I am one of his few remaining supporters, and he’s always been my favorite player.

Wings lock up Lidstrom

The Detroit Red Wings have taken 2006 Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom off the free agent market, signing him to a two-year contract.

Leafs can't afford a big name!

The perception has been, for a while now, that the Leafs have a lot of money to spend on Free Agents. Unless, they manage to unload some contracts somewhere, this is simply not true. Some of my numbers or guesses may be slightly off, but the overall picture is pretty much what I am laying out here. The most up to date look at the numbers are as follows:

What can the Leafs afford really?
