Bruins in no rush to sign Kessel

Fluto Shinzawa

For those fretting about Phil Kessel remaining unsigned, remember that there is no rush for either side to put pen to paper. The 21-year-old forward might not be ready to play until December because of rehabilitation following shoulder surgery. Kessel can continue his rehab and see if the Bruins sputter at the start, which could put pressure on the club to lock him up. On the other side, the team has a deep lineup up front. Three summers ago, Patrice Bergeron, also an unsigned restricted free agent, didn’t agree to his five-year, $23.75 million extension until Aug. 22

Clock ticking on Heatley

Habs aren't done yet

Bob Gainey has made some big changes this off-season, letting go of Koivu, Kovalev, Lang, Tanguay, trading Higgins for Gomez and acquiring Gill, Spacek, Mara, Moen, Gionta and Cammalleri from free agency. This was all done in a few days and not much has happened since .. only speculation of trades; MTL and LA , MTL and SJ, MTL and CLB .. this leads most to believe the Marleau deal is alive again, or that Frolov may be re-united with Cammalleri or that we may even get Huselius from Colombus. This is all speculation and I am going to give you what I think will happen.



The Rangers submitted a number below Nikolai Zherdev’s $3.25 qualifier in the salary arbitration hearing conducted on Friday, The Post has learned.
