TSN is reporting Boyd Devereaux has signed a 1 year, 2 Way deal with the Leafs.
New Jersey- Its a given that Brodeur will be the starter, but he began to show some chinks in the armor last year and is starting to show a bit of his ag and outdated style. Dont get me wrong, he is still an amaizing goalie, but he has passed his peak and is starting down the hill toward retirement. The backup is still up in the air as far as I know, with a battle between Clemmenson and Doyle for the backup spot. Like Nashville, it doesnt really matter who the backup is because they will be spending most of the time warming up the bench.
While the league still needs to approve the sale, it appears that the CEO of RIM, Jim Balsillie, will become the new owner of the Pens, buying the team for a reported $175 million. He has stated that he wants to keep the Pens in Pittsburgh and is looking forward to owning the team for a long time.
The New Jersey Devils named left wing Patrik Elias as the seventh captain in team history. He will wear the “C” for the first time tomorrow night, October 6, in the team’s season-opener at Carolina. The announcement was made by Devils CEO/President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.
The Nashville Predators named defenseman Kimmo Timonen as their third captain.
East Rutherford, NJ (Oct. 4. 2006) – The New Jersey Devils signed left wing Dan LaCouture. LaCouture, 29, had been invited to training camp on a tryout basis, after splitting the 2005-06 season between Davos (Swi.) and Boston.
Also today, the team assigned goaltender Frank Doyle and defenseman Tomas Harant to Lowell (AHL). New Jersey’s roster is now at 21.

On the night when the NHL begins another season, I thought I would give a few more sleepers to my loyal readers, but this time focus on guys who have added value because of the lines they are expected to play on. One only needs to think of Jonathan Cheechoo to realize almost any player can be extremely helpful to your fantasy team if he plays with the right linemates. I’m not saying Cheechoo is not a skilled player, but lines do matter a great deal in fantasy hockey and real hockey alike.
I’m excited for all you great Hockey fans and HTR members as Hockey Season is back. I just wanted to let you know that WowBaseball is getting more active everyday with people showing support and trying to help out.. Although the activity could be better, I wanted to let the Wow Community know that WowBaseball is still alive and on it’s way to being where it once was.
In just under 4 hours, the 2006-07 NHL season will get underway. We have waited since June 19th to see NHL hockey without going back to the trusty DVDs we all have.
The offseason was different for every team. Some teams improved dramatically, other’s didn’t do enough in the eyes of their fans. For me, the Devils and Lamoriello did just fine.
There are hundreds of questions surrounding the start of the season. Here are some:
