I have noticed that the media, the internet, and my close personal friends have been talking about the bright future of the Penguins, but is their future
really that bright?
Almost two months have come and gone since we all got our little dash of summer excitement from the 2006 free agent season. The rumour mill is really slowing down with very little players with value left on the market, and with rosters way more complete than at this point last season.

PART ONE – UFA DEFENSEMEN AND GOALIES
(I’ll do the forwards later on today and the RFAs before the weekend hits)
The Red Wings are set to name Nicklas Lidstrom as their first new captain in 20 years. He is taking over for the recently retired Steve Yzerman.
No formal announcement has been made as of yet.
Joe Micheletti is replacing John Davidson in the booth for the Rangers. Comments?
TSN is reporting Patrice Bergeron has re-signed with the Boston Bruins. The deal is reportedly worth $23.75 Million over 5 years.
According to tsn.ca Saku Koivu has been training hard the upcoming season and is optimistic that he will be ready for training camp. The Montreal Canadiens captain has been skating regularly now for the last three weeks after recovering from surgery to repair a torn retina in his left eye. While things have been going well on the ice, Koivu acknowledges there is always the possibility of suffering further injury to his eye. “When I look in a straight line, everything is fine,” he tells La Presse. “But when I look side-to-side… it’s a bit of a problem.” Koivu was struck in the eye by an errant high stick from Justin Williams during Game 3 of the Habs first round playoff series against Carolina. Hopefully he will be ready to start the season and lead the Habs to a playoff berth and possibly a Stanley Cup Championship!:)
