The Brunnstrom-sweapstake were the same. A lot of talking but they weren't able to sign him until the season of the team was finished.... I could be wrong, but I think this is the way it is....

Roman Wick is also a player who wan't to get into the NHL and he has an outstanding season so far playing with Kimmo Rintanen and Tommi Santala in a line....

Rumours were around last year, that the New York Rangers were interessted in Beat Forster and Andreas Ambühl. But I'm not sure if there's something on that rumour?
I know very little about NHL rules to sign people during the year but when you see the Sundin story or other players that were signed ... during the year ... i am surprised by your remark.

Ambühl is impressive ... hopefully he gets a shot, same for Wick.

Let's pray for Gerber ... again a bad period !!! maybe playing under the loup (in Canada where any small thing is watched and critisised) doesn't fit him ? He is good. Why can't he find stability ?
