Ok, so it’s a little early, but I like to put my ass on the line for these things, so I’m putting out my LeafyMcLeaf forecast and predictions for 2006 a little early.
The offseason is almost over, so lets look at which teams have improved and which teams haven’t.
All these dudes are due for a raise, a big raise. Some of the best deals in hockey that make your team better because they aren’t getting paid what they deserve. Post your favorites.
The official Montreal Canadiens website as announced that defenseman Ryan O’Byrne as inked a 2 year deal.
According to rds.ca and to Mix 99,7 FM JP Dumont priority is to play in Montreal.
From Mix 99.7 Fm : Dumont’s agent called Bob Gainey and offer a discount price (less than the arbitration award) for a 3 years contract.
Douglas Flynn of the Boston Herald writes, “The Bruins just announced that they will be holding a conference call for the media with owner Jeremy Jacobs, president Harry Sinden and executive vice president Charlie Jacobs tomorrow morning ‘to make an organizational announcement’ “, could Harry Sinden be stepping down???
TSN is reporting that the Buffalo Sabres have declined to pick up J.P. Dumont’s 2.9 million arbitration award.
How are these numbers determined exactly. Is it just me or do the arbitration awards this year seem way out of wack to anybody else??
There seems to be many teams that are looking to dump salary, but few who can take it.
