Lots of he said/she said out there today on UFA destinations.
Followed shortly by Katie Carrera
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.
OKC Barons close to announcing the signing of Cheechoo.
Good for them. They really needed to add a scorer.
While Hall, Eberle, Schultz, RNH, MSP and Hartikainen were in OKC, the team scored 115 goals in 35 games (3.3 per game). Since they are gone, OKC has only scored 7 goals in his last 5 games.
The only decent offensive threat left was Arcobello who has 10 goals and 32 points (his production was inflated by his former linemates). The rest of the players have 4 goals or less and 10 points or less.
This. I haven't heard of him since that Alan Walsh tweet.
It's too bad for him. I thought he was all but locked for a contract somewhere. Really banked on him in New Jersey again this year but after Matteau was given #15 I knew it wasn't a good sign for Sykora.
