It's Almost Frenzy Time

Just a few more days and things will go nuts. I want to first mention that I will be in the forums all day long on Sunday holding a Q & A chat inside the forum. You will have to be a member of the forums to post and view the topic, so please sign up for the forums ASAP to be prepared. July 1st promises to be a crazy day.

The Leafs have Jason Blake, Ryan Smyth and Paul Kariya on their radar. Talk has them interested in lower-end UFA's as well, such as Todd White and Kyle Calder. While his name has not come up at all, I expect the Leafs to make a significant push for Nagy as well as the bigger name players. Landing a Nagy and a Kariya isnt out of the question.

Dallas Drake has cleared waivers and will be bought out by St. Louis.

Phoenix is making a push for Manny Fernandez as Boston is having trouble meeing Minnesota's asking price.

Chicago continues to be in the market for a center, and will offer Briere, Drury and Gomez large contracts. With that said, it is doubtful any of them will become Blackhawks.

Regehr could be finished in Calgary. With the aquiring of Aucoin, some believe Regehr will be on the move. Watch New Jersey on this one.
