Lots of he said/she said out there today on UFA destinations.

Sykora will get an NHL contract somewhere. No tryout. In addition to Devils, Washington (Adam Oates connection) among teams interested.

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.
I think until the UFA market opens (Likely Saturday or Sunday), we'll be getting a lot of these "So-and-so interested in so-and-so" followed swiftly by "so-and-so says no interest/discussions". On one hand, lots of times it's just beat writers speculating, and other times it's because no GM wants to incur wrath of NHL and make it look like they're doing business when they're forbidden to do so, though I expect there is a ton of "informal" chatting going on with agents right now.
