Hometown Signings?

As we get closer to training camp, it appears that the two biggest UFA's available will end up in their hometowns. Carter continues to talk with the Leafs, and though he wants a two year / $5 million deal, that number could drop. Toronto is currently trying to make a move or two to free up the required cap room. Detroit and Pittsburgh are also in Carter sweepstakes.

As for JP Dumont, he could end up in Montreal after all. According to Hockeybuzz.com, Mike Komisarek could end up in New York (Islanders), which would free up enough cap room to bring in Dumont, who really wants to join the Habs. That being said, I don't see Komisarek being dealt, unless the Habs are getting a really good prospect in return.

Thanks to all that have shown interest in writing for hockeyleaks.com. It looks like this will be a very place come October once the season starts. I will also be writing for Hockey Nations starting soon, and who knows where else. Time to spread the hockeyleaks name, as we get ready for an amazing season of NHL hockey
