Emery will be back in Philly it appears with a cheap one year contract.

Flyers back to their old goalie ways.

And Islanders re-sign Evgeni Nabokov, one year, 3.25M per Arthur Staple

I’d take a shot at Grabovski if he’s interested in a $3.5Mish contract. A skilled centre is just what this team needs. He could slot in on the second or third line, and add that versatility that bringing in a checking centre won’t.

I’m totally shocked that Alfredsson left Ottawa…Murray must’ve seriously low balled him.

WTF are the Leafs doing buying out Grabovski and then not immediately coming to terms with Bozak?

I have a feeling Murray & Co. tried to low-ball Alfredsson so they could make a splash on another Fa (ie-Clarkson). This is likely Alfredsson's last contract, so I don't think he was interested in that big of a haircut.

As for Grabo/Bozak, I have a feeling Bozak wants to see just how much he can make now that he's been showcased as a #1C. Meanwhile, Toronto's no doubt trying to keep enough space clear to make their own FA splash (ie-Clarkson... man is he in for a payday)

They can have him. WAAAAY overpaid for a 34 year-old Dman who's never scored more than 6 goals as a pro and whose +/- ain't all that.

But he gets to go home... :roll:

Yup, Edmonton is just THE destination for FAs. :rofl:

The amount is okay, but 4 years is ridiculous.

At $5.5 million you'd think Ottawa could make it work. But apparently Melnyk is going broke so that may be why.

Alfredsson is a strange place for the Sens to cheap out on, and it’s not like $5.5M is a ridiculous amount. They have like $20+M in cap space to boot…

I have a feeling the Leafs messed up on Grabo (hehe). Sure he was overpaid, but he was their best centre, and they will either lose Bozak or need to pony up large. It looks like they might lose MacArthur as well, and only *might* be able to lure an overpaid UFA or two…strange management strategy IMO.

...We said from our glass house. :)

A lot of guys in our price range getting snapped up right now.

I wonder if today is going to be a day that we feel as though the boat was missed, again...

Where did Gordon go? Not tracking that one, though I saw Edmonton was trying to sign him.
