With just hours before the no-trade clause on Tomas Kaberle's contract is reinstated, Brian Burke says that it looks, at this point, like Kaberle will be staying with the Maple Leafs.

"If these offers are all we get...he's staying put," Burke told TSN on Sunday morning.

Toronto's president and general manager explained that there was no action on Saturday night.

The no-trade clause on Kaberle's contract has been lifted since the NHL Entry Draft in June. That window expires at midnight tonight, after which point the 32-year old defenceman must once again give his consent before being traded.
I still think he's gone by the end of the day...Burkie is tryin' to play mindgames.

VANCOUVER -- Free agent forward Raffi Torres signed a US$1-million, one-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks, the team said Wednesday.

Torres split last season between Columbus and Buffalo, scoring 19 goals and getting 17 a.ssists in 74 games.

He is expected to add a physical, scoring presence to the Canucks' third line. He should also get a chance to play with the first line as winger Alex Burrows recovers from summer shoulder surgery expected to keep him out at least the first month of the season.

Torres made $2.75 million last season, the final one in a three-year, $6.75-million contract he signed in 2007. But he failed to score with Buffalo after being acquired at the trade deadline for defenceman Nathan Paetsch and a second-round draft pick.

He managed only five a.ssists in the final 14 regular-season games and was a healthy scratch after recording two a.ssists in the first four games of the playoffs, as the Sabres were upset by Boston in the first round.
Love this signing, our grit ..

...

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to terms with free-agent defenseman Willie Mitchell on a two-year contract worth $3.5 million per season.

Mitchell's 2009-10 season was derailed by a concussion, limiting him to 48 games where he posted four goals and 12 points.

The former eighth-round pick of the New Jersey Devils in 1996, the 33-year-old has compiled 19 goals, 119 points and 621 penalty minutes in 586 NHL games with the Devils, Wild, Stars and Canucks.

Just for anyone who's interested odds came out. Caps, Pens, Hawks, Canucks are the favorites. In that order.

There are reports emitting from Chicago that Antti Niemi will sign with the San Jose Sharks.

It is believed the Finnish goaltender will sign a one-year, $2 million contract. Antero Niittymaki, who was signed earlier this off-season, would likely end up as Niemi's backup while plans for Thomas Greiss and Alex Stalock would have to determined after training camp. We'll keep you posted.

Sharks D is still garbage.. only reason Niemi looked good was cause of the Depth and shot blocking of Chi-Town.

The New York Post is reporting that the NHL could void the contract of Roberto Luongo as early as Friday.

The NHL would also not allow the potential contract of Ilya Kovalchuk the report says if the NHLPA is not willing to change some parts of the existing CBA to avoid front-loading long-term contracts. It is reported that the NHL wants to count only the years of a contract before the age of 40 towards the salary cap and negotiations are on-going. Luongo signed a 12-year/$64 million contract extension a year ago and the contract kicks in this season as he still had a year remaining on his old deal. The article also states that the Marian Hossa contract is still being investigated.Should both sides finally come to an agreement, the Kovalchuk, Luongo and all other deals will be grandfathered in. Stay tuned as this story is far from over.





seasons a few weeks away

Alright after all the moves, and training camp/pre season almost starting up.. goin' to make some predictions.

Top 5 SC contenders.

Pittsburgh Penguins - Easily the best team up the middle, Staal/Malkin/Crosby. Added 2 D-Men in Paul Martin and Z. Michalek, and lost Gonchar. More rest than the past 2 years, and Crosby is hungry again no doubt.

Philly Flyers - Didn't lose anyone but Gagne, added Redden easily have one of the best D. Cores in the league, and the team with more depth than them got weaker (Chi-Town)

V. City Canucks - Homer Pick, but also got better in this offseason with the additions of Ballard and Hamhuis to the back end along with Raffi Torres, Maholtra.

Detroit - is there really any need for reasoning?

Bruins - Horton/Savard could be a nasty duo if it goes like I think it will, Horton is the phsycially PF that Savard needed along his wing. Seguin could easily be ROY, only thing is their back end.

Runners up: Blackhawks & Caps.
