Opening Night now slightly more than three weeks away, speedy Bruins winger Phil Kessel remains without a contract, putting into doubt his statement last month that he would have a new deal in place by the start of the 2009-10 season.

Bruin Phil Kessel, almost dealt to the Maple Leafs in June, soon could be fitted for a Toronto sweater.
The question is: Will the Leafs once again try to pry Kessel away via a trade, or will Toronto general manager Brian Burke opt instead to extend an offer sheet to the fourth-year right wing, who last season scored a career-high 36 goals?

Mike Comrie is hopeful the work he’s put in this off-season pays off.
The local product and former Edmonton Oiler is healthy heading into the new campaign.
The problem, however, is that he has yet to sign with an NHL team.

I don’t like to tread in rumors and uncomfirmed reports, but the bandwidth this one will take up merits a mention with a few reservations. This rumor doesn’t make sense given the Red Wings’ relative depth, cap space, or personnel needs, so I’d suggest that it’s highly unlikely at best, but the source has been known to dish, “It’s so unbelievable that it might be true” dirt:
As contract negotiations with Brandon Dubinsky have hit a speed bump, the Rangers have signed 34-year-old free agent forward Vinnie Prospal to a one-year, $1.1 million deal, The Post has learned.
