- Anders Eriksson was promoted to Konstantinov's spot, but Holland traded for right-handed Dmitri Mironov trying to get a Russian 5 back, but Mironov just sucked. So they went back to Eriksson. He did surprisingly well.

- Let Tomas Sandström walk (to Mighty Ducks), promoted Tomas Holmström.

- Signed Brent Gilchrist to get center depth because Fedorov was sitting out until the Nagano Olympics. Gilchrist also get 15 playoff games under his belt when Doug Brown was injured.

- Aaron Ward ended to Bowman's doghouse, Holland traded for Jamie Macoun.
