5:18 I'm headed for a break. I'll be back at 6.
5:12 Buffalo fans, how do you feel about all this?
5:11 Briere says that other teams offered him more cash per year.
5:01 FLORIDA HAS SIGNED RADEK DVORAK TO A 2-YEAR DEAL.
4:57 It'll be interesting to see if the Devils re-sign Johnny Oduya in the wake of the Rafalski walk.
4:49 TFP is reporting Pat Quinn may be the next Devil coach. Ugh.
Also, Canes and Kings in the market for Brad Stuart.
4:46 Rumor is that Souray's getting close to a decision. Devils and Kings are big in the running.
4:40 SCOTT NIEDERMAYER HAS TOLD BRIAN BURKE THAT HE IS LEANING TOWARD RETIREMENT!
4:37 That's a real smart signing by the Hawks. Does that mean they've given up on Zeus?
4:36 No Panic Yanic (! at the Disco) Perrault signs with the Hawks. 1 Year/1.5 Mill.
4:34 Alexei Morozov announced that he'll stay in Russia for another season.
4:32 The Caps are looking into bringing back Michael Nylander.
4:28 Haha, speculators. TFP reports that NJ is after Souray now that Raffy has signed in Detroit.
Just a word for the Red Wings: If you love pathetic point shots, your in for a great year.
4:24 Devils may have a shot in the Gomez race again.
4:12 Look for the possibility of Roman Hamrlik signing with New Jersey, or one of the other lower-tiered D-men (Hannan, Stuart) or even Souray.
4:05 SARICH TO CALGARY, 5 YEARS, 18 MILLION.
4:04 RAFALSKI TO DETROIT, 5 YEARS, 30 MILLION.
4:04 It's calm..for now.
3:57 Final note on Briere: The contract features a no movement clause.
3:53 DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY REPORTS OF GOMEZ TO THE RANGERS UNTIL TSN OR SPORTSNET SAYS IT.
WFAN is airing a Mets game at the moment. They likely did little research (if any) and likely mentioned it in passing during a station ID. This is by no means a done deal.
3:51 Rafalski has an offer from Edmonton, they're waiting his answer.
3:48 Official word on Briere's Salary: 8 Years, 52 Million. He'll be a 10 million dollar man for the 07-08 season.
3:47 WFAN in NY is reporting Gomez to the Rangers. Discard it for now, WFAN is by no means a trusted hockey source. And it's also the Devils flagship, so I don't think they'd get the info before TSN or SN.
3:44 TSN REPORTS THAT DANIEL BRIERE's DEAL IS 8 LONG YEARS, between 48-56 million in salary.
3:41 Denis Grebeshkov re-signs with the Oilers. So the Ryan Smyth deal wasn't a TOTAL failure. Ok...it was.
3:40 Toronto is talking to Kariya, Smyth and Blake. Likely topics: What a playoff game Post-Lockout looks like.
3:37 THE FAN 960 is REPORTING THE THE FLAMES HAVE SIGNED CORY SARICH
3:33 GOMEZ RUMORED TO THE LEAFS FOR 5 YEARS.
3:31 BREAKING NEWS: FLYERS GET BRIERE! SPORTSNET.CA REPORTS
3:30 Back at the helm, I see I've missed nothing. I'll update some rumors momentarily.
