Devils to let Madden and Gionta become UFA’s
Pens ink Guerin and Adams, others are a wait game.
Wings, Marian Hossa still talking
Kings looking to sign a big name UFA
As we approach July 1st, rumors are running rampant on players being signed here, or players being traded their, players be pursued by this team or players being let go by that team. This is exciting for fans of any team, and can also be a let down for others. Bur i will try to show 10 things to all fans that will not be happening this offseason
The Montreal Canadiens in the 2009/2010 season will likely look different then the one that just finished last season. But will there be more new faces from outside the organization than inside? Everyone speak of how Bob Gainey needs to sign many players to ice a team next season, in all reality the Canadiens could ice an a team of NHL players, it would just be many young players who got a taste last season needing to step it up.

So, here’s the rumour:
The Calgary Flames add Jay Bouwmeester, then flip Dion Phaneuf to Ottawa for Dany Heatley.
They lose some offence from the blue-line in the transaction, but bring in a local boy who scores 50 goals up front. And the salary cap hit in losing Phaneuf and gaining Heatley only costs GM Darryl Sutter $1 million.
I don’t know about the rest of you fans, but I think it is time to forget about Vinny and time to look elsewhere. As much as he would have been nice to have and may have helped attract other UFA’s, Philly has just pushed his price even higher after over paying for a 34 year old Pronger.
I think that trade may have put a lot of potential trades on hold. The only thing possibly working in Gainey’s favour would be that at least one of the owners in Tampa wants to spend to the cap floor. Which owner will get his way?
