from Pierre LeBrun of the CP via Slam,

Who knew the St. Louis Blues and Minnesota Wild would be such heavy hitters on the NHL free-agent scene? But they were, and they came out clear winners after a couple of frenzied opening days of free agency. The Anaheim Ducks also won the jackpot. They added former Norris Trophy winner Chris Pronger to a back end that already included Scott Niedermeyer, making the Southern California team an early contender for the Stanley Cup next season.

“Rebuilding” Edmonton

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Charlei Teljeur of the Hockey News,

Being within one measly win of another Stanley Cup still isn’t proof enough for the elite players in the league to want to play their hockey in Edmonton? Perhaps an overhaul of the city is in order. What will take to convince the hockey world that the city is big time and should be treated as such? First off, boost that sparse population base. On your best day you still can’t crack a million residents. Find a way to attract more immigrants. Not a couple, a whole mess of them. Make up a rumor about another gold rush. Offer free methadone at clinics.
