“Matthew Lombardi is headed out of the desert and into the Music City, signing a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Nashville Predators.
The 28-year-old centre had spent the last two seasons with the Coyotes before becoming a free agent.” (Source:TSN)
It’s just my opinion but this is the guy the Calgary Flames should have brought back…
The Buffalo Sabres Have Signed free agent defencemen Jordan Leopold to a 3 year deal. Terms not disclosed.
The Vancouver Canucks have signed the highly coveted free agent defencemen Dan Hamhuis.
The deal is worth $4.5 Million, terms of the deal not released yet. I will update as the terms are available.
UPDATE: The term is reportedly for 6 years. This is a great signing for the Canucks.
The New Jersey Devils Sign Defencemen Henrik Tallinder to a 4 year, $13.5 Million dollar deal. That’s a $3.375 Million dollar cap hit.
Also, The Edmonton Oilers have signed defencemen Kurtis Foster to a 2 year, $3.6 million dollar deal. That’s a $1.8 million dollar cap hit.
The Phoenix Coyotes have made another move signing free agent winger Ray Whitney to 2 year, $6Million dollar contract. The is a good signing for the `Yotes, bringing in a veteran presence as they try to continue their climb in the Western Conference landscape.
Derek Morris has re-signed with the Phoenix Coyotes to a 4 year, $11 Million dollar contract extension. This work out to a $2.75 Million dollar cap hit.
The Montreal Canadiens sign Goaltender Alex Auld to a 1 year, 1 Million dollar deal. Look for Dan Ellis to sign elsewhere.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed veteran winger Martin St. Louis to a 4 year contract extension, keeping the diminutive sniper locked up for the next 5 years. The money involved is $22.5 million, with a $5.625 million cap hit.
More solid work from Steve Yzerman.
“New York Rangers have acquired defenseman Anders Eriksson from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for goaltender Miika Wiikman and a seventh round selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
The 35-year old Eriksson will report to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League. He has three assists in 12 games with the Coyotes this season.” (Source:TSN)
This is a move that should push the Rangers deep into the playoffs…? In my opinion, they’d be better off with the 7th round pick.
“The New York Rangers have claimed Alex Auld on re-entry waivers from the Dallas Stars.
Auld, 29, is 9-6-3 with a 3.00 goals against average and .894 save percentage in 21 appearances this season.
A free agent at season’s end, Auld is making $1-million this season, though the Rangers will only be responsible for half of his remaining salary this season, with the Stars picking up the other half. “(Source:TSN)
This move makes sense for the new York Rangers, Lundqvist can’t play every game.
“Centre Nazem Kadri will make his NHL debut for the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight.
The 19-year-old was called up on an emergency basis as Christian Hanson and Fredrik Sjostrom will both be sitting out with the flu.
Kadri has 26 goals and 40 assists in 42 games with the OHL’s London Knights this season.
The London, Ontario native was drafted seventh overall by the Maple Leafs in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.” (Source:TSN)
It’s been an interesting week for the Toronto Maple Leafs and with Nazem Kadri making his NHL debut tonight, it’s going to get even more interesting with many in Leafs Nation holding their collective breath…
Kadri is the prized prospect in the Leafs system and as much as fans are anxious to see him with the big club, there’s a danger in putting 167 pound, 19 year old rookie on the ice with the big boys.
Kadri was pretty ordinary at the World Junior Championships and the impression many had was that he seemed dis-interested and somewhat undisciplined. That kind of play won’t be tolerated at the pro level, but it’s safe to say that his interest should be focused tonight.
I’m not suggesting that 1 game will set the tone for his entire career but there is comfort in ignorance regarding a players potential, and the days of romancing about the future of Nazem Kadri is coming to an abrupt end in Leaf land…

“While details are few, sources say the Toronto Maple Leafs are on the verge of completing at least one trade today that will be viewed as a “major change.”
Specifics as to whether the deal will be for an upgrade in goal, or for offensive help, weren’t provided, however this deal and potentially others are very close to being completed.
When asked if these “major changes” were imminent, the source replied, “they should start happening today.”

Something has to give in the Big Smoke of Toronto, and according to Darren Dreger (who is a very reliable source for inside information) today is going to be very active, in fact “major changes” are imminent.
We’ll be covering this situation closely as the story breaks….
