Aucoin To Calgary, Richards To Chicago Soon?

The flames have aquired Adrian Aucoin from the Chicago Blackhawks. No word yet on who is going the other way, check for all the latest. This is a salary dump by the Blackhawks, who have their eye on bringing in Brad Richards from Tampa Bay. This is close, very close.

JS Giguere is the first of the big-names to re-sign with his club. 6 a year, four year deal. For those who can't do the math...four years, 24 million total.

The Leafs have re-signed Carlo Colaiacovo to a new three year deal worth just under 1.3 million per season. I am hearing Kubina or McCabe are dealt this weekend or prior to July 1st. Stajan is also being dangled this weekend, while Dallas is pressing hard to get Steen from Toronto. The Leafs continue to look for another goalie.

Four teams have inquired about Wade Redden, Edmonton and Detroit are two of them. The Sens will only deal Redden if they can't get him signed long-term.

The Phoenix Coyotes are trying to get Fernandez out of Minnesota, and have offered Nick Boynton. Toronto, Tampa Bay and Boston are in these talks as well. Boston is also talking to San Jose about Toskala, and is offering a package that includes one of their two current goalies, likely Hannu.

Expect the next few days to be crazy. The Oilers are really pressing to make a deal, as they have three first rounders. A lot of action is expected tomorrow and Saturday. I unfortunatly have to work tomorrow night during the draft, but I am hopeful someone will be here covering the draft.

Also, remember we have items up for auction that we are selling to raise money for the site. Please go here and bid on some of these, it will help us a lot!

More Information Later, as it comes in.
