Oilers Close To Signing Sykora

from the Edmonton Sun,
For better or worse, it’s almost a done deal. A contract between the Edmonton Oilers and unrestricted free agent Petr Sykora isn’t done yet, but completing the ink on a deal that will land the Czech winger in Oilers silks is a formality. Take that to the bank. Amid much speculation about Edmonton's interest in Sykora and spirited debate among fans about the merits of striking a pact with the seven-time 20-goal scorer, indications are talks between the Oilers and agent Ritch Winter have progressed to the point where the announcement of a deal, likely for one year, will come soon. It’s not a matter of if, but when.
continued update 1:09pm, via TSN,
Petr Sykora has signed a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers pending a physical, TSN has learned. Sykora is undergoing an MRI on his groin today and if he passes the physical the contract is done. An announcement is expected later today.
Also, Leafs Lunch stated $3M.
