Free agency opened in the NHL last weekend, and from noon that Saturday until the following Sunday many of the elite players were scooped up by GM’s hungry for that missing piece that will put their team over the top.
The daily action has since slowed down over the past week, but many significant moves still occurred. Here are some of the signings/deals with the most impact on your fantasy squad:
TSN.ca is reporting that Brendan Shanahan has decided to sign with the New York Rangers. The deal is said to be for 1 year at around the 4 million dollar mark. Apparantly Shanahan turned down bigger offers from both the Red Wings and the Canadiens. Reportedly Shanahan called Gainey on Saturday to tell him he was going to reject his offer. So finally we are able to end all speculation from Boston to Detroit to Montreal in the biggest media capital of the world, New York, New York.
According to Sports Radio 66 WFAN in New York City, the New York Rangers have made an offer to Brendan Shanahan. While listening to the 20-20 updates, Jerry Recco stated that the Rangers are currently waiting to hear a response from Shanahan on whether or not he’ll take their deal.
What the heck is going on, or should I say is wrong with Ken Holland all of a sudden. The league has known him to be a deal maker and top-notch stealer in the past years but lately his choices are questionable.
Now that the Leafs have almost set their line-up for the 2006-07 season, who won’t make the team and what would the lines look like? I’m going to set a line combination with possible signings (ex. Roberts, Lindros, Peca). I’m interested to hear all of your feedback and your own ideas.

Martin Havlat is taking another step closer to the door.
