According to an article by Larry Brooks of the NY Post, Shanahan has agreed to a one year, $2.5 million contract with $1.5-2.5 million in attainable bonuses. The deal is pending league approval of the structuring of the contract.
TSN.ca confirms that Shanahan has re-signed with the Rangers. John Dellapina of the NYDailyNews believes it to be a one year deal worh $2.5M with incentives driving it up to $4M or above, which would count against next season’s cap budget.
According to Hockeybuzz, Vitali Vishnevski has signed a 3-year deal with New Jersey.
More to come.
TSN.ca is reporting that the New York Islanders have named newly signed forward Bill Guerin as the team’s captain going into the 2007-08 season.
Guerin becomes the 11th team captain in Islanders history.
The Vancouver Canucks announced Monday afternoon that they have signed free agent defenseman Aaron Miller, in keeping club policy terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Over the past week and a bit there has been alot of speculation that the Leafs are going to move goaltender Andrew Raycroft known in Toronto as Razor.
Now Raycroft will most likely go to Phoenix if he does get traded i would want a trade like this.
The Phoenix Coyotes have signed Mike York to a 1-year deal worth $1 million. A low risk signing for the Coyotes at a much more affordable price tag than York had last year. It could pay decent dividends, but if he played like he did for the Flyers (in his limited number of games since he was scratched most of the time, or limited to 5-10 minutes of ice time per game) then the Coyote fans will definitely be shaking their head whenever he is on the ice.
Ok, now I know for a FACT that anyone who reads this article will call me a delusionist but hear me out. Mike Komisarek is only 25 years old and entering his 4th full NHL season, and that’s not including his 21 game effort in 02-03. I believe that Komisarek could emerge as Montreals best PP point man if they actually gave him a shot at it. Here’s my reasoning. Sheldon Souray didn’t become a PP specialist until 03-04. Before that, He was a grinding 5th defenceman on Montreal and NJ. Despite what everyone thinks of Souray, he actually isn’t all that bad defensively, he’s just a bit bad in one on one situations. Now, here’s what Souray’s done before he became a PP QB:

According to the Post Gazette http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07190/800305-61.stm
CBS Sportsline in NY is reporting Shelond Souray is deciding between a deal with the Rangers and a deal with the Devils. In order to sign with the Rangers Souray would take below market value, but he has expressed his wishes to go to a team with a shot at the cup.
The Leafs have got a good core of forwards this year, pretty good on defence and the jury is out on a goalie but as of now he looks pretty damn good. It is hard to do lines for this year because of Yashin and Peca and all that so I will do it with and without them.
