Roloson signed a 3 year contract to stay around & Pisani a 4 year. Pronger, yeah whatever!

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 heard a rumor about a week ago that the Avs maybe interested in Pronger. Whether or not that's true I can't say, but they need someone to try and fill in Blake's shoes, I think Pronger maybe a good fit.

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

TSN is saying Pronger has been dealt to Anaheim for Lupul, a prospect and picks.

They are also reporting that the Wings are going to make "a major annoucement" today about Yzerman's future and the rumor is that he's gonna retire.    :'(

The Captain has officially retired.  That guy was the epitome of class and leadership.  He was truly one of a kind and the reason I am a Wings fan.  He will be dearly missed.  I'm just thankful I got to see him play at the Joe this past season.  That was a dream come true.  I HAVE to be at his jersey retirement ceremony.  What an awful morning.   :'(

Yep, he's outta here. Not much for Pronger's interview that I read today.

The Pen's GM has basically said they're not going to go signing people randomly so it looks like no improvements are gonna happen here...  Well nothing major at the very least.

On another note a new group is wanting to buy the Pen's and keep them in Pittsburgh if the Plan A Isle of Capri deal falls through and the current ownership abandons the team or attempts moving them...  This new group is the same one with Dan Marino (among others) involved.  Sounds like someone's gonna pick up the slack I just hope Lemieux stays involved either way though, as he's too big an icon to not have "in" with the team in one way or another.

I'm not at all surprised to see the Pens quiet.  They got burned by their signings last summer and the ownership situation is unsettled. 

It looks like the Wings may offer Belfour a contract.  I hate that guy and now I'm gonna have to like him.   >:(

Uh, no.  It's a smart move though since Howard is the goalie of the future.  Just bring in a solid goalie in Belfour for a rumored $500K instead of giving up a player on the roster for someone expensive (like Giguere or Nabokov) and let them keep the crease warm for a year or 2.  It's low risk, high reward.

15 years? Wow. That's insane. How many years has DiPietro been in the league? Or maybe I should ask how old he is? 15 years almost seems too long...
