Tim Taylor Named Captain

The Tampa Bay Lightning have announced that Tim Taylor will be the next captain for the club. Vincent Lecavalier and Brad Richards will wear the "A's" as assistant captains. Lecavalier, Taylor, and Fredrick Modin wore "A's" last year after captain Dave Andreychuk was waived. Modin has since been traded to Columbus.

Mark Tobin with Boston

Mark Tobin has signed a 3 years contrat with the Boston Bruins this week.

21 man roster

Repeatedly throughout the series of Town Hall Meetings held over the past two weeks, Lightning GM Jay Feaster was asked about the makeup of his roster. He stated he fully expects to have 3 goalies (Denis, Holmqvist, and Burke) on 1-way contracts come to Training Camp and remain on the roster through pre-season. Said all 7 defensemen on 1-way contracts are expected to be on the Opening Night roster. Offered that he anticipates making no more moves nor signings before camp. Clarified he prefers to have enough cap space to recall 2 players as play/injuries warrant. Mentioned he expects to carry 21 at the NHL level, which translates to only 11 forwards.

Roster(s) Taking Shape Pt. 2

With a number of recent signings by the Springfield Falcons and Johnstown Chiefs, I figured now would be an excellent time to take another stab at the team rosters at all three levels of the organization. [b]Updated: 9/27 to include signing of John Adams[/b]

"Russia is an attractive option for young, vibrant talent which is not properly treated (by NHL teams)."

:P [url=http://www.cbc.ca/cp/hockey/060823/h082318.html]Interesting perspective agent Mark Gandler has.......[/url] Mark Gandler, the agent who represents those players, says Russia is an attractive option for "young, vibrant talent which is not properly treated (by NHL teams)." Feaster is also quoted about R2 but this paragraph is the one takes the cake IMO.... That Artukhin, Grebeshkov and Bergenheim are Gandler's clients is just a coincidence, the agent said from his New Jersey office. He vehemently denies the rumour that he was getting a cut from Russian league clubs to deliver them NHL players.
