With the signature of Patrick Elias with the Devils, Bob Gainey can spend the 7 Millions he offered on other players.
Gainey is rumored to be trying to sign forward Petr Sykora along with defensemen Brandon Witt or Radoslav Suchy.
Gainey tried to get Sykora and Witt before the trade deadline but was unable to afford other GM's demands.
It's expected also that Goaltender David Aebiesher will be traded but Gainey is trying to add Richard Zednik in the deal. Detroit, Columbus, Florida, Philadelphia and St. Louis are rumored to be interested in Aebiesher. "
Eklund has been great durring the last couple of days. He got quite a few deals ahead of any other source. And he had Elias to NJ early in the afternoon and I was "Yeah...right....like they can afford him."
And looks like he got Pronger too.
