TSN.ca is reporting that the Edmonton Oilers have signed 41- year-old free agent centre Adam Oates has agreed to a one-year contract. General Manager Kevin Lowe says the decision to sign Oates came after it was determined that centre Marty Reasoner would be lost to the team for up to a month with injuries to both his ankle and his knee.
In the most recent news from Edmonton, the San Jose Sharks are showing apparent interest in Mike Comrie. It has been reported that Comrie would go to San Jose in exchange for Johnathon Cheechoo and another Minor league defenceman. This could happen within in next few days.
Devil of an opportunity; Dano retirement party
The MantaRay Devil report November 12, 2003
(From the swamps of Jersey)
Bruins captain Joe Thornton is fed up. Fed up with some current tactics in the NHL. So fed up, he may be considering retirement.
According to the Post (not Brooks) and other sources, due to the lagging attendance this year, the Isles will be looking to cut some salary. It has been rumored that either Hamrlik or Parrish would be the one to go, but as I have said before, that would be a shock.
According to many reports, these 5 teams all want comrie really badly. Atlanta has been in the running for a while, but a few teams have recently shown interest, and offered some interesting deals.
By pushing for a hard salary cap and completly refusing the NHLPA’s proposition for a new CBA, the owners have shot themselves in the foot… again.
OK, everybody knows that the Avs are reaching a milestone 400th sellout (anticipating tonight’s game) at the Can. That may sound good but there’s a bigger issue here that’s telling of the National Hockey League’s policy on the attendance statistic.
Sportsnet.ca reports this morning that Habs center Yanic Perreault had a heated exchange with coach Claude Julien at the morning skate. As a result, he will not be playing tonight. This gives Bob Gainey a problem…or is it just a hint as to what is wrong in the Habs dressing room?
