UFAs In A Holding Pattern

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Mike Mottau hasn’t given up hope that he’ll be back with the hometown Boston Bruins next season, but he’s one of many free agents waiting in limbo while a CBA is worked out between the NHL and the NHLPA.

Mottau was with Bruins teammates Shawn Thornton, Tuukka Rask and Daniel Paille taking batting practice at Fenway Park on Tuesday afternoon, and shagging fly balls in the outfield.

This would normally be the final few weeks of the offseason for NHL players before they begin skating, attending captain’s practices, and getting ready for training camp. But many second-tier NHL free agent veterans are still without homes: Jason Arnott, Carlo Colaiacovo, Petr Sykora, Mike Knuble, Andrew Brunette and Dominic Moore, to name a few.
