Ottawa Should Sign Emery Soon

Bruce Garrioch of Sun Media is suggesting that the Senators should get on the ball and sign Ray Emery to a new contract before July the first.

He speculates that a number of teams may have targeted Emery as a player to sign as restricted free agent because of the compensation that would have to be given up. Any team that is able to sign Emery to a deal that is not matched by the Senators would have to give up “a first, second and third round pick in 2008.” Those draft choices may be something that a team would be willing to part with in order to get a top ranked goalie.

Some of the teams that Garrioch indicates are in the market for a goalie include the Boston Bruins, Tampa Bay Lightning, St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings.
