TSN is saying Luongo signing for 4 years at $27 million is a done deal.  Very surprised that he would sign being a year away from having his pick of teams.

Penguin fans are PISSED off tonight...

Fox Sports fired Mike Lange, the Pen's voice since as far back as I can remember...  The guy is a legend in this town.  It'd be like saying Myron Cope got fired from calling Steeler games instead of stepping down himself.  It's utter bull**** despite what he may or may not make.  The guy's a legend announcer and a HUGE part of hockey here...

he's been offered the radio gig while Paul Steigerwald (Steigie's are sports guys locally and big into the hockey scene in this area) who was the radio announcer and Lange's old colorman is now taking over the TV game calling.  He's not a good play-by-play though for hockey.  Very monotone.  Better colorman for Lange.

Lange, I hope, takes the radio gig and I'm gonna skip watching them on TV to listen tot hem on the radio then.

In other Penguin's news, Dan Marino is among a group wanting to buy the Penguin's and keep them in Pittsburgh irregardless of how the slot's license pans out...

The Avs have resigned Clark and Skrastins to multiyear deals. They'd better hurry up and sign Blake. Blake has said he wants to stay, but at the same time his agent says they want to test the waters. I will be royally pissed if we lose Blake especially after the year he had after the Olympic break and during the playoff run.

If the Avs don't do anything with the cap room freed up after trading Tanguay, I'll be equally as pissed.

Elias staying in New Jersey.  I believe it was 7 years for $42 million, so they stepped up to keep him.

Lalime to Chicago.


Uh, Chicago having a hard time figuring out goaltending?  I know Khabibulin was a bit disappointing and I'm probably the biggest apologist out there for Lalime, but why?

I'm really confused what the Wings are doing with their goaltending. Are they honestly going with Osgood as #1?

I'm not sure what they have in mind.  You had to think Gerber was a target and Biron from Buffalo continues to be mentioned.  Maybe they are ready to hand the team over to Jimmy Howard.

Dale, heard any of the Pronger rumors up there?  Guys on Spawn are saying the hot rumor making the rounds is Pronger got someone within the organization pregnant so his wife wants him out of Edmonton.

I'd heard it was a female member of the media.  I'd also heard mention that the agent for Pronger said the trade request was a family related issue :-X

We should know what's going on Tuesday.

Pronger to clear the air?
