Carolina Claims Samsonov

The Carolina Hurricanes have claimed winger Sergei Samsonov off re-entry waivers from the chicago blackhawks. This is a great move by Carolina, as they are in need of a boost. Samsonov comes free via waivers, and thanks to the re-entry factor, they are going to pay him less than a million dollars to play 38 games plus playoffs for them. Very little risk here, but there could be a lot of reward. Great move by the Hurricanes. I'm hearing he will play tonight against one of his former teams, Boston.

A lot of talk about where Rob Blake will go, as at this point it's a sure thing that he will be traded. Carolina is one team I'm hearing loudly, while the Rangers are another. It looks like he will end up in the East, and will only be a rental player, with everyone expecting him back in LA for 08-09.

Sergei Federov to Montreal is heating up again.
