Denis Signed

3 years, 8.6 mil. A good signing. Denis will do better behind a solid team. When his deal is up, one of the young guns can come in and hopefully take the role. http://tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=170478&hubname=

Sydor traded to Dallas

Tampa gets a 4th rounder in return.. way more then I expected.. very nice.

Kubina and Grahame are Gone

According to TSN.ca Pavel Kubina has signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs for 4 years at $5M per season. Best of luck to Toronto with that. I think Pavel is really only worth about half that. Apparently the Hurricanes have signed John Grahame to a two year deal for about 1.5M per. Boston has loaded up by signing Chara and Marc Savard. Phoenix has signed Ed Jovanovski.

Modin vs. Denis

I've been a member of this site for a few weeks now, and I see that most people don't agree with my views. Somehow, I can live with that. People disagreeing with me, and telling me so tells me that my ideas are worth something. Because of this, I'll post my feelings about the trade for Marc Denis. Everyone has been saying that we needed a new goalie. Fine. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I disagreed. I admit 2005-06 was a pretty bad year for us (goaltender wise), but I dont think trading Fredrik Modin was a good idea. You all probably disagree with me. You probably think that goaltending was what needed to be fixed. Okay, some nights the goalies could have stayed home and we would have done better. I just dont think giving up a top six foward was a good move.

Bolts trade for new goaltender...

TSN is reporting that the Lightning have traded forward Fredrik Modin and goalie Fredrik Norrena to the Columbus Blue Jackets for goaltender Marc Denis. While I'm glad to see the Bolts finally got an NHL experienced goaltender, I'm not so sure that Denis is the guy that will lead the Bolts back to the Stanley Cup. From what I've seen of him over the past couple of seasons while watching him play for Columbus, he has shown some flashes of greatness but nothing consistant. Denis had a record last season of 21-25-1 with a 3.25 goals against average and a .900 save percentage. I guess at this point what's done is done and we'll all have to wait and see how he works out.
