It's over!

I think both Eaves and Meszaros get signed (perhaps Kaigorodov too) over the next few weeks...followed by the Sens winning the draft lottery next Thursday, followed by the buyouts of de Vries and perhaps Smolinski. Do we qualify all of our RFA's (e.g. do we quality Todd White at $1 million?) We need to get Hossa, Spezza, Havlat, Volchenkov and Fisher signed multi-year, and then perhaps get a UFA or two if we can afford it. So many questions - I can't wait for the answers.

The month of August is going to be crazy - I'm so pumped.

GO SENS GO!!!!!

They'll probably sign Eaves and Meszaros. I'm not sure they can sign Kaigorodov with the money he can make in Russia and the fact he's guaranteed playing time there. They have to re-sign Hossa, Fisher, Spezza, Volchenkov, and Havlat to multi-year deals for sure.

And if they could win the draft lottery that would be great too. We've got a 1/48 chance I think.

Why would you sign these young guys if you would lose them after 7 years due to the new CBA? Would it not make more sense for Meszaros to go to Bingo for at least a year or two? Eaves is older so maybe sign him but I would send him to Bingo too to get some professional experience and fill out a bit more.

When they talk about signing young guys do they mean prospects who may still have junior or university eligibility or do they mean guys who have played in Bingo for a year or two or with men in Europe and Russia?

We have to sign Eaves within a couple weeks or we lose him.

The euros aren't as important, but all contracts would be 2-way and these guys are highly unlikely to make the team, so you don't have to worry about the 7 years to UFA thing.

I'm pretty sure none of us said Meszaros or Eaves are going to the NHL. We said sign them, and assumed they'd head to the AHL.
