2) Bobby Holik to Atlanta
3) Derian Hatcher, Chris Therrien and Mike Rathje to Philly
4) Adrian Aucoin to Chicago
5) Yzerman resigns with Detroit

$$ are down too.   :)

Something even local for us.  Randy Carlyle, formerly coach/GM of the Manitoba Moose is off to Anaheim to coach the Ducks.  That's a step up, right? ;)

Don't forget the Wild...

We "upgraded" from enforcer Matt Johnson (473 games, 1523 Penalty Minutes) to left wing/enforcer Andrei Nazarov (569 games, 1403 PM).


But my favorite move so far has been drafting LW Benoit Pouliot...



Look at him!  The hair!  The name!  Now that's a Hockey player!   :P

Bruins resign Glen Murray and Shawn McEachern.  Was hoping the Wings would get Murray since he was on their radar after the 03-04 season. 

Preds get Danny Markov from the Flyers for a 3rd round pick.

1) Adam Foote to Columbus

Bummer.  :'(

Major Bummer. :'( Foote was one of my favorite players on the Avs, I think I would have rather seen Blake go, or better yet a couple scrubs. :(

Lightning Re-Sign Fedotenko

Jay Feaster still has to address restricted free agents Vinny Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis and try to convince unrestricted free-agent goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin to return to the Lightning.


Just when it looked like the Lightning were sitting pretty, a cancelled season leaves the entire team hanging...

Just great.

I don't think the Lightning will keep all of them.

Rumors flying that Modano has resigned with the Stars for 5 years, keeping him a life-long Minnesota North Stars/Dallas Stars guy. 

Martin Lapointe rumored to be heading to Ottawa.

When the news ended tonight here there was word of the Pens going after Neidermeyer since they lost out on getting someone whose name escapes me now...

It's nice feeling excited for hockey again...  I'm ready. :)
