Well Lookee Here…Stuart Signs For Four With Wings

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

AlanaH breaks it at the Empire Home Page, with some help from TSN.

All Wing signings and commentary will begin and end with this post. It’s a UFA live blog is what it is.

Updated 1545: Wings sign a backup.  Riveting commentary below.

Updated 1613: Well bitches. Tucker’s a Dive.  I’ve always hated that bastard.

Updated 1800: With Devo’s signing (just made it up. Figure it out. Read below) for 750 and Ozzie making 1.4 next year? The Wings are committed to just over two million for a pair of goalies who could arguably be referred to as top ten in the league last season.  Chicago?  Just under 12 million for Huet and Khabibulin. Forget comparing the two sets of tenders.  Dale Tallon or Ken Holland? No choice, eh?

Penguins Sign Pascal Dupuis 3 Years

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Dave Molinari at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

They also have agreed to the structure of a contract extension for center Evgeni Malkin, although the deal has not been finalized. Malkin’s contract will be patterned after that of Sidney Crosby, which means it will run five years and include an annual salary-cap hit of $8.7 million.

Report: Devils Re-Sign Pandolfo and Brylin

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

At Fire & Ice, Tom Gulitti reports:

It appears they have re-signed Jay Pandolfo and Sergei Brylin as well [as Bryce Salvador, reported earlier], but i’m still waiting for comfirmation on that. The Devils have called an 11:15 a.m. conference call with Lou Lamoriello to “discuss the team’s players.”  I’ll give updates and more detail when I acquire them.

update 11:28am, Now updated with this,

The Devils have re-signed left wing Jay Pandolfo and defenseman Bryce Salvador, the team announced this morning.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello also announced that they have passed on the option on Sergei Brylin’s contract for $1.52 million. Lamoriello did not rule out signing Brylin at a later date, but said he will become an unrestricted free agent at noon. Arron Asham will also become an UFA.

Keep An Eye On Chicago

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

If the rumor mill is any indication, the one team I’d keep a close eye on is the Chicago Blackhawks. GM Dale Tallon has somewhere in the area of $13 million to spend and I fully expect him to come away with one of the higher-end, puck-moving defensemen (Brian Campbell, Wade Redden, Mark Streit or Michal Rozsival) over the course of the next 24-48 hours.

One of the more intriguing side plots I’ll be watching is the level of interest in two players – Todd Bertuzzi and Ray Emery – whose less-than-ideal reputations precede them in a major way.
