Oilers sign 2
Jacob Markstrom has signed a 4 year deal worth $3M per season. We are thrilled to have added a goaltender of his caliber to our organization, and he will be playing right away. Adding probably the top goaltending prospect in the world as our franchise net-minder is a big deal for us, and it sews up the position for the foreseeable future.
Scott Nichol has signed a 1 year deal worth $600,000. We are very happy that Scott decided against his $600,000,000 offer and chose to sign with us instead (an example other UFAs should follow to sign with us). Scott will bring needed grit, energy, and defensive awareness to our 4th line.
The Dallas Stars are pleased to announce that the club has signed Patrick Wiercioch to a 2 year deal worth $1,000,000 per season.
The Dallas Stars have signed Andre Benoit to a 2 year deal worth $700,000 per season.
"Andre has paid his dues in the AHL and now he deserves a shot in the NHL."
Lock up defenseman Alex Edler to a 7 year contract worth 40.25.
We're thrilled to have Edler in Pittsburgh. We tried to sign him before the off-season but we understood his desire to test the market and we respected it. Glad he decided to return as a major piece of this franchise moving forward.
:edmonton has signed G Jose Theodore to a 1 year deal worth $1.2M. We're happy to bring in a vet goalie who will likely split starts with Markstrom, who is also familiar with him. Plus he's about 1/3 the price of Dubnyk.
The Devils are very excited to announce the signing of tough, rugged defenseman Mike Weber. The former Sabre, we feel has good promise and brings a toughness to our back-end that was missing before.
2 years @ .8 million/season
:habs Sign goaltender Thomas Greiss
Montreal Canadiens and Thomas Greiss have agree to a 2 year deal worth a total of 1.6mil$.
''Very happy to add a quality goaltender like Thomas to our team. We feel Greiss will give us a great chance to win the games he will start.''
The Dallas Stars are pleased to announce that the club has signed Adrian Aucoin to a 1 year, $2,250,000 deal.
We are proud to announce the signing of D Francis Bouillon to a 1-year deal worth $1,000,000.
Detroit, MI That was a short rebuild in Detroit, apparently. The Red Wings have made two big splashes this afternoon as they have come to agreements on contracts with defenseman Mark Streit and winger Alexander Semin. Streit received a 5 year deal worth $27.5M and Semin received a 7 year deal worth $49M. Both players received a no-trade clause. Red Wings GM IR4 was quoted as saying, "I was bored."
:ducks2 DUCKS BRING BACK SELANNE, SIGN HORTON AND FISTRIC
The Anaheim Ducks have been quite active in the free agency market, signing forwards Teemu Selanne and Nathan Horton, along with defenseman Mark Fistric.
Teemu Selanne 4.5M$ for 1 year with NMC
Nathan Horton 36M$ for 6 years (6M$ cap hit) with NTC
Mark Fistric 6M$ for 3 years (2M$ cap hit)
Last season, we had to take the difficult decision to trade Selanne to our division rival, the LA Kings. He had the chance to win another Stanley cup and we were happy for him. But he had to come back where he belongs and we didn’t waste any time to ask him if he would like to come back for one more season before his retirement. We have a young team and we feel it was important to add such a leader for our organization. He will play on the second line with Ryan Strome and Nino Niederreiter.
We gave a huge contract to Horton but he was the perfect fit for our team. He has plenty of experience in the NHL and he is still quite young. He will be an important part of our core for years to come. He will play on the first line with Bobby Ryan and Cody Hodgson.
Our cap space gave us the opportunity to add a guy like Fistric who will make our defense group really deep. We are planinng to go with a rotation between Souray, Allen and him as our bottom pairing defensemen. Injuries are part of the game and if Fistric can stay healthy, he should be able to play pretty much all the games next season.
:bolts sign two recently-acquired forwards:
Vinny Prospal: 1 year, $3,500,000
Matt Calvert: 2 years, $1,200,000
I had a long write up but then the internet crashed....
Michal Neuvirth - 2 years @ 1.65 million
Benoit Pouliot - 1 year @ 1.1 million
We are very excited for both and expect big things. We like Neuvirths experience for a young goalie and we like Pouliot's combination of size, strength and offensive skills. It was a no brainer to pick up a 25 year old 30 point player who is 6'3.
The Calgary Flames have signed Dan Cleary to a 2 year contract worth $3 mil per year, with a LNTC.
The Ottawa Senators have signed the following players to contracts
Douglas Murray-3 year 3M per year with NTC
Kimmo Timonen-2yr 4.5Mper year with NTC
Colby Armstrong-1yr 1M
Daniel Alfredsson-1yr 3M
New Threads; Morrow, Hannan, Scuderi put on Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets made sure their tailor was present in the free agent market, inking free agent forward Brendan Morrow to a 4 year, 14M$ contract paying him 3.5M$ per season, as well as defenceman Scott Hannan to a 1 year, 900K$ contract and Stanley Cup winning blue-liner Rob Scuderi to a 2 year, 5M$ contract paying him 2.5M$ per season.
"We are ecstatic to have lured these guys to Columbus. We consider it a huge win for this organization." Jackets GM TribalPhoenix stated in a release tonight.
"Brendan Morrow will become an instant leader in the dressing room, and will slot in as a key point of our offensive and defensive game. We plan to try him our at a few spots in the lineup, but believe he will be a key factor in our future success. Scott Hannan is a hard-nosed defender who leads by example, and makes sure the opposition suffers when they walk into our zone. Rob Scuderi brings a winning pedigree from his days in Los Angeles and Pittsburgh, and will be a huge part in our defensive corps. We believe we have added some key pieces."
"Sit tight though. We're not done yet."
The Devils are happy to announce the signings of Patrick Elias and Derek Roy adding to our scoring depth immensely.
Derek Roy - 4 years for 3.5 million per season
Patrick Elias - 2 years for 3.5 million per season
Valterri Filpulla - Anze Kopitar - Dustin Brown
Luke Adam - Mike Richards - Jeff Carter
Dwight King - Jarret Stoll - Justin Williams
Kyle Clifford - Colin Fraser - Jordan Nolan

Lubomir Visnovsky - Matt Greene
