GM's and owners not wanting to be seen grovelling to players prior to the CBA negotiations perhaps? There is interest, but it's all being done on the phone.

Frankly, if you'd told me Boyes was coming back the the Sabres for that contract I would have been okay with it. Zero risk, IMO.
Haha. True, true. If he works out and gets some top 6 ToI and PP time, he could be a very handy signing.

Actually, that dog and pony show they put on last year for Richards probably put a lot of GMs off at going through that routine again. It's pretty demeaning.

$1M / 1yr for Boyes? He's still worth that. Puts the Isles over the cap floor, too.

20 teams wanted to go, so they had to cancel for obvious logistical reasons

No surprise but the Red Wings have made offers to both Ryan Suter and Zach Parise



now the Wings, Flyers and Wild have made offers to both.

Because they're both Russian? That's... a tad on the blind side don't you think?

Asham off to the Rangers. Can't imagine someone thinking they can "play out of character" to get out of the East.

If you're going to sign a Russian player to mentor Grigs you can't do much better than Fedotenko. He is a hard working, grind it out type that sells out to block shots and has had playoff success. He is a consumate professional and would be a great example for Grigs

So Darcy has no reason to not get a couple of high-end AHL UFA's signed since he's probably waiting on everyone else to figure out where they're going/taking his offer, right?

Fedotenko could be an interesting addition. He's not much of a scorer but could be a fit next to Vanek and Hodgson.

Bobby Mac saying N. Foligno could go to the Jackets for Methot. Ugh.

Horrible deal for Ottawa. Maybe the Jackets want to turn around and deal him to the Sabres now. Hey, traded twice in an hour happened to Steve Reinprecht once...
