Tomorrow Could Be Busy (All Contracts Must Be Filed by 5pm EST Friday)

Per Elliotte Friedman

Quote:
NHL Players and teams know that if they want contracts approved by 5pm ET SAT (last day of CBA), must file by same time tomorrow...
Quote:
so it could be a busy day (Doan, etc). League has warned teams that not filing by FRI aft. means risk of not getting approved in time.
I think tomorrow may also be the deadline for putting players on waivers, for the purpose of assignment to the AHL, too, though I could be wrong on that one.

Doan, Kostitsyn are the only good players left, right?

Apart from RFAs of course.

Maybe some trades tomorrow? I could be wrong, but I expect one at least.

For UFAs, there's also Petr Sykora (21 goals, 44 points); Jason Arnott (17 goals, 34 points); Dominic Moore (25 points); Pavel Kubina (Averaged over 19:00 per game).

I'd be surprised if we saw any, to be honest.

There might be one offer sheet/trade.

Doan will probably sign too. Maybe some minor ones, but I wouldn't expect anything special.

Moore is not gonna be signing because I don't think he will be able to play next season unfortunately due to his wife's condition.

Sykora/Arnott are near retirement and I wouldn't be surprised if Sykora went to Europe. I'm very surprised that STL brought back Langenbrunner instead of Arnott but some team needing a 3rd line C (*cough*Chicago unless you want Kruger/Bolland as your 2/3C*cough*) would wise to sign him even for the 1 yr, I think he's in game shape still.

Quite a few notable names remain unsigned, both UFA and RFA.

I would think that Doan may sign tomorrow, as will Colaiacovo who is rumored to be signing with Detroit.

Meh, I kind of want Gillis to sign Kostitsyn. He's young, a RW, and a pretty good playmaker. We could use him.

Unless we get Doan, of course.

I do too. There's a reason MTL fans would welcome him back, he's actually a pretty good two way player. He made a mistake in Nashville and suffered some strict consequences. Not just the suspension, but his reputation has been dragged through the mud by the media. If anything, I'd guess he's looking to rectify that. The KHL would have been the easy out, it doesn't appear as if he wants to take it.

There's actually a lot of players who could be resigned. This will be the last shot before the new CBA, so anyone who's an upcoming UFA or RFA has some enticement to sign a lifetime contract before they're no longer allowed to.

I don't think we'll see much action.

As far as UFAs are concerned, there isn't much incentive to get a deal done, especially for someone like Doan. A UFA won't somehow magically lose his UFA rights after the lockout. Any salary rollback would roughly equally affect contracts signed after the lockout due to the fact they'd be valued under the updated salary landscape. The only real change for a UFA would likely be term restrictions preventing career-long deals, which obviously doesn't apply to any of the remaining UFAs. If anything, Doan would want more time to sign a deal since he's waiting for the ownership to be in place.

For RFAs, particularly guys like Kane, Subban and Del Zotto who are expecting big raises, the teams are probably the ones holding back. Likely the teams want to give longer term deals to eat up some UFA years if possible but with the age of UFA eligibility possibly rising it no longer makes sense to overpay for longer term. Ex. If a team pays for 2 years of UFA under the current structure, they might end up overpaying for a contract that takes the player to the end of their last RFA year under the new CBA. Too much uncertainty to structure the deals properly IMO.

I think most teams would probably take the elder Kostitsyn. Like you said, he's a good versatile two-way player and other than the one incident in Nashville he hasn't had anywhere near the same problems as his younger brother.

It'll be an interesting day hopefully. It feels good to be getting some news on a few more signings this week (Rozsival and Colaiacovo) and to see players hitting the waiver wire.

There are a couple UFAs who could sign tomorrow. I'm thinking Doan, A.Kostitsyn, Arnott, and maybe Sykora. There are still a bunch of good RFAs out there too.

Don't forget about contract extensions for upcoming UFA's. I think there's a decent chance of Gillis locking up Burrows tomorrow. As good as any other player getting extended at least.

Forgot about players with one year remaining. There may be candidates in there for long-term deals before they restrict contract term.

If the CBA isn't working, why are teams scrambling to sign players?

Seems like the owners are talking out of both ends.

Seems like it because they are. This lockout is just about the owners trying to save a buck. Not about saving anyone's franchise or fixing the sunbelt.

Hockey is becoming a joke. Absolutely pisses me off. Its funny cause Gary states "the fans will come back". I can almost guarantee you that another lockout will disinterest the fans from small market teams. The fans that already didnt have that much interest to begin with. The only teams that will be negatively affected by a lockout are the teams Gary is advocating for the most.

As Ryan Miller said, If Bettman has been operating and running the league at 200+ million dollar losses a season over the last 8 seasons, why on earth does he still have a job?

But the "beast that you know" expires in a little more than 24 hours and - according to the owners - is fundamentally flawed.
