Lindros, Thorton Sign New Deals

What a slow day. I didn't update sooner because there was very little to say. First, I was to introduce our new Calgary specialist, InSutterWeTrust. Remember, if you are interested in being a specialist please contact me at

So, Eric Lindros is finally a Leaf. He signed a one year deal worth 1.55 million. Next on the Leafs radar appears to be Anson Carter, who could sign tomorrow. The are also looking to deal one of their defensemen. Joe Thorton will remain a Bruin for three more years, making the list of UFA's next summer that much smaller. Thorton signed a three year deal worth 20 million dollars, making the Bruins that much more dangerous. Brad Lukowich signed a two year deal with the Islanders, making them a little stronger.

Alexander Mogilny is saying he'd take a $3 million pay cut to stay in Toronto, but Toronto just isn't interested in him. Mogilny is likely to sign with Florida, but there is no rush from either side. Chris Gratton is in serious discussions with the Rangers. Atleast this year we know the Rangers have no shot at the playoffs. Bryan Smolinski may be dealt by Ottawa, Columbus is said to be interested. Tampa Bay has interest in Jason Wooley. Sergei Federov is being shopped, with Edmonton and Detroit possibilities. Detroit will likely make a trade or two in the next few weeks as they have a cap crisis. More Later
