Morrow Inks Six Year Extension In Dallas

Morning Everyone

Malkin seperated his shoulder, but it was popped back in. He should be back for the start of the season, if not before, and worse case he may miss like a week or two of the season, but thats doubtful.

Recchi fractured a bone in his face (Ouch!) and is doubtful to return in time for the start of the season, thats what I'm hearing right now anyway.

Brenden Morrow re-signed in Dallas, a very nice SIX year extension worth 4.1 million per season. He was said to be after $5 mil a season if he were to become a UFA, but the Stars have prevented his UFA status for 7 years, and are very happy about it.

Though Maclean is saying he will not trade Zherdev, it's not out of the question. I know of at least six teams that have called about the Russian forward, Rangers and Sharks are two of them.

Dallas may be looking to deal Niinimaa, no word of if there will be any takers.

Doesn't look like Leetch will land in NYR, as I said yesterday, but it's still not 100% out of the question. One rumour I did hear was that the Devils could deal Paul Martin (possibly to Edmonton), and then sign Brian Leetch to replace him.

I'm hearing Bondra wants to play for the Leafs but they are not that interested. The Wings right now I believe are the front-runners to land him.

Atlanta, Washington and Calgary are all looking for Centres. The two biggest rumoured names out there are Gomez and Allison. As you may have heard, Code believes Marleau is on the trading block and could be headed to Edmonton but I have no information regarding such thing.
