This also just in...

Patrick Roy and Curtis Joseph both will be signing with the Colorado Avalanche, provided they meet several criteria, all of which, if followed, must be approved by all 29 teams in the league, pending the anticipated restructuring of the collective bargaining agreement, as well as the approval of the Detroit Redwings and Bob Goodnow. The team has been in talks for the last 48 hours, and for the most part, the deal has been worked out, most of the criteria having been met. There is only one sticking point: There would be a provision written into the contract under subsection 37, paragragh 19 of the NHL rule book, which would call for no using the bathroom while on the team plane. Experts surmise that since Patrick Roy was a member of the mile high club in Colorado (which of course is the "mile high city"), Curtis Joseph would create a perception of "one uping" Roy by becoming a member on the plane as well, therebye, effectively, becoming a member of the 2 mile high club. Management and players alike fear this would create friction in the locker room. Gary Bettman is looking into the issue...and a commitee is looking into creating a plane without lavatories on flight.

Will keep you posted on further details...

its true. marchment was a 'steal' for the leafs @ 2 million for a year.

Free agent Greg deVries, formally with the Colorado Avanlanche, has just reportedly signed with the NY Rangers. I was hoping the Canucks were going to land him.

Here's the pre-story:

i think the wings will be better for it.
I entirely agree. You have redeemed yourself.

As for Marchment... well, I guess the Leafs are out of the running for GQ Team of the Year. Again.



Nice to see the Canucks finally sign one of their own.

And, what Chizip said

Breaking news:

Sergei Fedorov has reportedly signed a 4 year, $40 million contract with Anaheim.

One has to scratch their head on this one. Anaheim asked Kariya to take a paycut and did not offer him a qualifying offer after his $10 million per season salery ended. They said they could not afford to pay any player that much money. Next, Kariya signs with a different team (Colorado) for only $1.2 per year. Anaheim GM Brian Murray (I think that's his name) feels slighted by Kariya for not taking a paycut in Anaheim but for taking such a drastic one for a different team, and publicly says so. Next, he goes and signs Fedorov for the exact amount he would not pay Kariya. Suddenly, and mysteriously, Anaheim has plenty of money to throw around to ageing superstars.

This reeks of a kind of one-upmanship between the Kariya and the Ducks. Kind of an "I'll show you," and a "No, *I'll* show you," sort of thing--which, I might add, is very bad business. That's why I'm probably totally off base...but you have to wonder...

Looks like Detroit will be looking to close a deal to acquire some big time forwards pretty soon. Might involve trading a goaltender methinks.

Yes, I agree. However, I don't think Cujo is going to St. Louis, simply because they, like Colorado, are also a conference rival...though Detroit might be forced into making a deal with just about anyone at this point.

I know he's not going to Vancouver. Burke just resigned Cloutes, and claims that Cujo hasn't proven himself to be better than him (Burke is always a card). The story goes that Cujo is $5.5 million more for the same quality of goaltender.

I think Burke is all talk, no action. He still hasn't signed one damn forward! This was supposed to be the summer for shopping. I guess everyone bought it hook, line and sinker. He must be taking lessons from the Leaf management over the years.

Well, Whitney is still available, but why hasn't he signed him already!!! And he totally missed the boat on Prospal. Same with deVries. This is getting ridiculous. Our big news is always a re-signing of a Tommy Salo or a Dan Cloutier. Not exactly front page headlines...

Good riddance, Sergei.

Maybe they ought to move the team closer to Hollywood so Sergei can take more drama classes.

PopAngel -- I really feel your anguish, the broken heart behind the severing between you (along with fellow Redwing fans) and Sergei. It's painful to see. I'm here for you

This reminds me of the time Wayne left Edmonton...but instead of 99 tears, it's 91 tears...and a little love, from Russia. Wot a pity.

The Avs traded Nederost and Messier to the Florida Panthers for Peter Worrell.

Another one of Lacroix's head scratching deals..."we needed a fighter" but why the hell did they get rid of Scott Parker? Parker at least had some offensive talent and was a great guy, very popular. Worrell is simply a goon--off ice as well as on, it seems.

I don't get the Avs going after dirty players every season--first Kasparitis, then Marchment, now Worrell. It didn't work out before, it's not going to work again.

The Avs give up another young talent in Nederost--admittedly, he hadn't really blossomed but I think deserved a little more time. We could have gotten some decent forward, anyways. Eric Messier...not one of my favorites, but I always gave him credit for alway being a guy to take one for the team. Note to future Avs grinders--looks like it's not worth sacrificing your facial structure after all! Messier gets shipped off, but wimps like Serge Aubin get to stay.

I thought the same thing when I heard it...I don't think it's that far off base.
