Not Much Tonight

First I want to remind all our e-mailers that we have a new adress at and Please advise others of this change.

First, Lindros' MRI results have not come in yet, but when they do, and if they are found to be what the Leafs are hoping for, #88 will sign a deal with Toronto. Columbus has dropped out of the Lindros race. Calgary and Florida are both interested but at this point I would say Lindros is a Leaf, 100%. Mikael Samuelsson will sign with Toronto according to a swedish newspaper. This is not confirmed, but JFJ was interested in him a few months ago. Finally on the Leafs front , Howard Berger from the Fan 590 says he has information that the Leafs will add one more "name" defenseman, but at this point we have no idea who that could be. Could be Hamrlik, could be Witt, could be Aki Berg's twin sister.

Marian Hossa wants over 6 million a season to stay in Ottawa. Some reports are saying Detroit is trying to pry Hossa away from them, maybe Datsyuk in return? Detroit is apparently also still interested in adding another goalie and dealing Legace. Robert Esche signed a two year deal with Philly today, no idea on the financial terms. Dan Cloutier signed his qualifying offer today, but the Canucks are still looking around for another goalie. Curtis Joseph's name has flown around Vancouver a lot. Edmonton is another team looking at Cujo.

Finally, be sure to check the forums out! A new fantasy power rankings forum has been added. Yick has put together a power rankings system for each position and gives rankings for over 600 players. A new power rankings will be up by the weekend, as well as another article for Hockey Opinions! See you in the morning, I'll hopefully have a few tips on RFA's tomorrow involving which ones could sign with new teams. We should also finally find out that Lindros is a Maple Leafs. Hamrlik is expected to sign very soon as well...stay tune
