Sykora back to NHL
 
Petr Sykora is close to sign a contract with NHL team. Source did not mention the club. I guess Anaheim could be interested in Syks.

Exit Dose 01-10-2013 02:52 PM

I'd love to get Sykora back.

Most likely. NYR would not say no if price is reasonable (1,5ish prorated on a 1 year deal) but that will not be enough...

BrianBoyle 01-10-2013 03:04 PM

Kinda want NY to sign him.

Mortenson 01-10-2013 03:10 PM

According to that article, Syks will not sign with Devils, despite Lamoriellos intererest.

tankotopgun 01-10-2013 03:27 PM

would only imagine him signing with a contender. kind of tough with the shortened season however NYR does make some sense. then again i could see the pens or even a carolina being in there. they all have space and would benefit from the experience he would bring.

Top 6 Spaling 01-10-2013 03:28 PM

Sykora and Erat have, IIRC, had some very good chemisty in international play. I hope Poile would be intersted. No rumors that I've heard, just would like to see it.

Bruin4Life 01-10-2013 03:29 PM

Would love to see him slotted in next to Kelly and Peverly on the Bruins 3rd line

dillyboy93 01-10-2013 03:31 PM

Washington

Previous interviews seems to suggest the opposite: Sykora would like to play in NJ but Lou's interest is lukewarm at best.

Not sure why, we're desperately thin on forward, but Lou's responses pretty much amount to ''We'll see what happens''.

Katie Carrera, who covers the Caps, denied interest on their part.

Quote:

FWIW, from BoG mtg RT @Ledger_NJDevils: Capitals haven't contacted UFA Petr Sykora and GM George McPhee says that is not in his plans.
Of course, I'm pretty sure all the GMs are being very secretive about negotiating with players as no one wants to invoke a fine or penalty from the NHL. So, either Washington is interested and covering their *****, or have no interest. It's a peculiar time to be a hockey fan.

I hope not.

He may still have some left in the tank, but we don't need more soft, old euros filling out our lineup.

Sykora definitely wants to come back to the Devils, it's been Lou waiting it out.

He had a pretty good year last year playing with Elias, don't think he'd want to give up that chemistry.. not to mention Elias and Zidlicky are his best friends.

Would take him back for sure. I'm thinking either Lou has something else up his sleeve or was just waiting for new terms of CBA.

Hey Don Cherry! I'm a big fan!

InfinityIggy 01-10-2013 04:27 PM

New Jersey would be my guess.

kamil27 01-10-2013 04:29 PM

He is soon to retire. two more years max. used to be an amazing player. put some some decent numbers for jersey last year
