The move is on

We're in the process of moving servers, which is why currently points to, who is providing us with the server. I'm not sure how long this will take, hopefully this will be completed in the next few days. Thanks for the patience.

Oilers Sign Penner To Offer Sheet - Site Update

I know the website hasn't been updated in a few days, this is because we are in the processs of moving the site to a new server. This will be happening in the next few days, and the site may be down for a few days. The blog will still be up, but the forums will be down. I'm not sure if the forums will survive the move, so keep your fingers crossed. worst case is we start with fresh forums, which wouldn't be terrible.

The Oilers have signed Dustin Penner to a five year / 21.5 million dollar offer sheet. Thats 4.3 a season, and as good as Penner is, the Ducks have to walk away. They can't afford that salary, and if they do it will be devistating to their cap situation. Even if Teemu or Niedermayer want to come back, they won't be able to fit in under the cap. Kevin Lowe is not making a lot of friends this off-season. Parise and Cammalleri remain the big RFA's still available.

Gelinas has signed with Nashville. One year, still checking on the money amount. This surprises me, as Gelinas is getting older and obviously wants to win, Nashville just doesn't seem to be the best bet in their current state. Maybe he knows something we don't?

Campoli On The Move?

LeafyMcLeaf on our forums has brought to my attention that Campoli has been removed from the Islanders roster on their website. does this mean he's on the move? If I'm a team looking to trade with the Islanders, Campoli is a kid I'd want in return.

I've also heard Anson Carter could sign with Vancouver this week.

Devils Sign Zubrus

Details to follow at

Major Site News is about to turn two years old. On July 8th, 2005 I started a blog at, to update my friends and others about the latest news during the dreaded thing will call the lockout.

The blog began getting hits from all around the globe, and the forums took off instantly. In October 2005, we launched a website, which not only had daily news updates, but standings, rumours, stats, and interviews.

Two full years later, is one of the top rumour websites on the internet. We've expanded to offer our readers so much more than we could have ever dreamed of. Our blog is currently at 1.95 million hits, while our website has had hundreds of thousands of unique visitor, and over 20 million hits over the past two years. I never expected all of this, and I want to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide you with my information. This site is a passion of mine, just like hockey has always been. You have no idea how much I enjoy running this site, and being able to speak to you all on a daily basis.

So we come to the site news. As I said, we've grown a lot since we started. When we were looking to get free webspace to start the website in September of 2005, we were contacted by a reader, Roddie from Dallas. He had a server and because we were not that big of a ite, he offered us his server and webspace. We have been very pleased with what roddie has given us, and without him, probably would not exist.

Unfortunatly, we have grown much bigger than any of us could have expected. Roddie's server can no longer handle us, which leaves us without a server and without web space. That leaves myself with the task of finding a new home for As I'm sure many of you are aware, is owned and operated by just myself. We have had many people help out over the years (and I want to thank Cory (cdog77) for all his help over the years, he helped us from dying a few times with all of his site updating), but as far as the bills go, I have paid for all the costs this site has had over the years. We had a few small ad deals that paid for a chat room here, or a domain name there, but as far as profit goes, has not made any.

So what does this mean? It means that in 2-3 weeks we will no longer be on the server we are on. I'm in the process of looking for a new server, but it will all depend on the costs and what we can afford. If I am moving forward with, I refuse to take a server that is less than the one we're on. If is to exist, it will continue to move forward, there will be no steps back.

I have my fingers crossed that we will be able to save this site, as I think it would be a tragedy if closed down. I know a lot of people visit this site many times during the day, and we have a few people who I honestly believe never leave our forums. I will do my best to keep this site operating, and lets hope we can move forward and live to see our third, fourth, and so on anniversary.

If your interested in helping us out, any ideas to raise money can be emailed to me at You can also click the link below to donate money to our paypal account. I can promise you any and all money donated will go towards us putting a new server. I'm pretty sure if a dollar is donated, just that would force me to put the money out necessary to keep around. Even if you can spare a dollar, it would help. I've always been against putting large google ads, poker ads, etc on, as that slows down load time, and takes away from the website and what we're trying to do.¤cy_code=CAD&lc=CA&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8

Hockeyleaks will continue to operate as usual until further notice. I'm not sure an exact date that we have to be off the server, i believe it will be mid-july.

Once again, thank you for getting this far, it's been an amazing experience thus far, and I hope it can continue and this will all work out. has been updated with today's rumours, check the forums and UFA 07 section for all the breaking Brad Isbister was just signed to Vancouver...

Bertuzzi to ducks

just got a call, bertuzzi is a duck, two years

Zubrus To Toronto?

I've had two sources telling me it's close, so we'll see...

join us in the forums for our live UFA chat, things are happening fast and furious right now

nagy, handzus to LA reported that Handzus signed about a half ago. The media has picked it up now, its a done deal.

I also mentioned earlier that Nagy to LA was very possible, and now it's done. Waiting for details on both, but they are both 100% done

Hamrlik To Montreal

4 years

Nylander To Washington

Deal with Oilers must have fell through..Kevin Lowe must be getting frustrated. Nylander gets four years from Washington, no money amount yet, check for the latest.

Whats Next?

To see whats coming, you have to look at two things. Which teams got worked yesterday, and which teams have too much.

Teams that had it rough yesterday are:

Buffalo - They lost their two biggest players, and Zubrus (it looks like he's gone), and haven't replaced them at all. I think we may see the Sabres make a trade, and make one or two tier 2 signings.

NYI - Blake, Smyth, Poti, Yashin, Zednik - Five big guys that got you to the playoffs last year...they have a lot to do to repair this team.

San Jose - They free'd up money to land a big name, and instead they didn't, PLUS they lost Scott Hannan.

Montreal - They needed a centre and a big d-man and got neither. I look forward to seeing how this team reacts.

New Jersey - Without Gomez and Rafalski, this team isn't a playoff team. They need to find replacements.

Nashville - Vokoun, Kariya, Hartnell, Timmonen. Thats a lot to replace.

LA - Went after all the big names, and struck out.

Edmonton - See LA

Phoenix - See LA

These teams all need to make deals, and make them soon before the market dries up. It will be interesting to see what these teams do in reaction. Some will make smart moves, others will make moves that hurt them for years.

Then you look to to the Leafs and Rangers. Both teams are close to the cap, and have too many roster players. Both admit they are still working the phones, and rumours are flying around about both. By the end of the week, you will see big moves / signings by both teams, both are not done yet.

Thanks for coming to Hockeyleaks, we had a great day yesterday. I have some news regarding the future of, but I will save that for a day less busy. Thanks again for all you've given me. While Hockeyleaks doesn't make a sense, to see we had almost 500 000 hits yesterday makes me feel like I do all of this for a reason.

live rumour chat now in forums

Im posting rumours as they come in, things are going crazy. Drop by the General Hockey forum at and stop by. Dominos are about to start falling

Lets Do This!

1 am here in Toronto, meaning 11 hours left to wait. I plan on sleeping soon so that when I wake up, it will be UFA frenzy time. Hockeyleaks will have live coverage tomorrow from 12 until 2 or 3 pm. Make sure to be in the forums for the latest news, and check for the latest details.

Latest has briere going to Montreal, though Philly, LA and Buffalo are still in this.

Bertuzzi to Detroit, Toronto or Montreal.

I am also excited to see what teams shock and awe us. We've been hearing Philly, Toronto, LA, San Jose, Buffalo, Montreal, etc as the big players. It wouldn't shock me at all if Columbus, Minnesota, Phoenix, or another low key team came out of nowhere and shocked us all by grabbing a Gomez or Drury. Gomez still likely to NYR, though Edmonton will offer him the largest deal. Drury out west....Colorado, San Jose, LA...though you can never count Buffalo out.

The Leafs are said to be ready to make a few giant splashes tomorrow. They're plan is to grab two wingers tomorrow, we'll see what happens. Expect toskala's extention to be announced tomorrow as well.

Get some sleep, tomorrow will be fun
