Loaned.

Will play with Pontus Aberg, another Nashville prospect.

It's a little like Radulov all over again, of course not nearly as extreme. I thought he was an RFA (without checking capgeek) but he wasn't apparently. If he indeed signed a contract, that wouldn't be legal. Nashville could very well have loaned him there. They still have Engren and Smith.

Engren signed in Finland. I guess the Admirals will roll with Smith/Hellberg

So, per Eric Stephens, Ducks' beat writer

Quote:
Understanding is an arbitrator awarded Kyle Cumiskey a one-year, two-way deal. $744K/$105K. Ducks want to retain his rights. However ...
Quote:
Cumiskey is challenging Ducks rights to take him to arbitration after qualifying him. He's already signed with Modo in Sweden.
Quote:
Will lay this out better as more info is gained. Basically whether Ducks keep his rights will be decided later.

Nope, the Wild have actually 49 contracts.

Those players have only accepted their QO's.

Capgeek added some contract details (Including Mike Testwuide whose signing was announced way back on the 1st or 2nd of the month!). Among them is Tom Sestito, whose signing was previously unannounced. 1 year 2-way deal worth $605,000 at the NHL level.

However when everyone signs, they'll be at 51 (including two slide risk contracts)

so you can be at 50+ during the offseason as long as you have the slide risks to cover it.

What it could mean is that unless they lose a contract by the end of TC, they would HAVE to send dumba back, even if they didnt want to (though let's be honest, they probably are planning to unless he blows them away at TC).

take a look at dallas: 52 active contracts, but 8 of them are slide risks.
If contract space becomes an issue for the Wild, they should think about terminating Bjorn Krupp's contract, before thinking about making a trade.

It's quite an odd situation...Bjorn, the son of Uwe, came to the Wild's camp in 2009 as an invitee an earned a contract. However, after ending his junior stage in Belleville, he signed a contract in Germany. So, despite having strong north american roots and being under contract, Krupp never played with the Wild's organisation.

Glad to keep him around, though wish the Leafs gave him an actual chance w the big club. Amazing faceoff guy.
Though guess if this is a AHL contract there goes that chance anyway

Per Elite Prospects, Calgary D Clay Wilson has signed with Donbass Donetsk of the KHL. Wilson played with Abbotsford of the AHL, along with 5 games with Calgary. What's curious about this is that Wilson is on a 1-way deal next year with Calgary.

That is curious. Isn't he violating his contract with the Flames by signing overseas?

Unless he approached the Flames about playing overseas instead and the Flames agreed to let him do it and will waive him/buy him out/loan him out.

Sestito was a RFA, re-signed with Philly.

Cumiskey will play in Europe next year, the announcement about his contract this week was what an arbitrator ruled he would make when he returns. Cumiskey and his agent are trying to argue about his rights.

Per TSN, Lightning sign KHL defenceman Korobov to two-year contract

Quote:
The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed defenceman Dmitry Korobov to a two-year, two-way contract the team announced Thursday.

The 23-year-old played for Minsk Dynamo of the KHL last season. He had one goal and 11 points in 39 games and led the team with a plus-12.

Flames GM Jay Feaster confirmed Wilson’s contract has been voided.

“In accordance with NHL rules and regulations, the Calgary Flames have terminated the contract of Clay Wilson,” Feaster said. “He is no longer on our reserve list.

Wilson logged a lot of ice-time for the AHL’s Heat last season but will try to prove he’s NHL-ready with a solid showing in Ukraine.
