UFAs- Top Dmen & Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Here’s a look at the top defensemen who could be available July 1:

Brian Campbell

All indications were that the smooth-skating defenseman acquired by the Sharks at the trade deadline from the Sabres would remain with childhood friend Joe Thornton in San Jose. But Campbell recently told GM Doug Wilson he wanted to return to the Eastern Conference for family reasons….

The New York Rangers will be back in the hunt and Atlanta, which has never had a top-notch puck mover and power-play quarterback, will likely take a run. If the Leafs can unload Bryan McCabe and his contract, Toronto might be a nice fit for Campbell, whose family is near London, Ontario.

Rolston Could Be A Wanted Man

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ryan Dixon of the Hockey News,

If free agents pitched their services on late-night infomercials, Brian Rolston would be positioned as the amazing all-in-one player who can take care of every household need before folding up compactly to be stored out of sight.

No fuss, no mess – just results.

Need a little defensive help? Put Rolston on the penalty kill and just look at that shine! So it’s offense you’re after? Good news; Rolston comes with a 30-goal guarantee!

Ottawa Has $5M To Spend

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Barring a trade of someone bigger than Brian McGrattan, Bryan Murray figures he’ll have about $5 million (all terms US) to wave at an unrestricted free agent next week.

That would likely take him out of the Brian Campbell sweepstakes—unless the former 67’s star is willing to accept less salary to play in the nation’s capital next year….

The Senators’ primary need is for a puck-moving, offensive defenceman, and if Campbell is out of their range, Murray is expected to concentrate his efforts on Michal Rozival. The 29-year-old Czech has posted back-to-back seasons in the 40-point range for the Rangers. He made $2.3 million last year.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Regina Leader-Post,

Mick McGeough is hanging up his striped shirt, but he’s keeping his skates on ice.

The veteran referee, who’s retiring after 20 NHL seasons, has accepted a newly created mentoring position with the league’s officials association. As a result, McGeough will be back in the fold—and back on the ice—in September when NHL referees and linesmen convene for their annual training camp.
