S. Niedermayer called GM Brian Burke last night to inform him that he's "leaning towards retirement", hence the Schneider signing a few hours later.

The Blues sign Kariya, that's exactly what they needed

Enough said.
Montreal was apparently in the running for him, too.

GMs are apparently getting by the problem of a salary cap by loading the first year or two of a player contract with a huge sum of money (couple million) to gain an advantage over teams with less cash-on-hand.

Bitches.

The Islanders are fucked. Blake, Smyth, Poti, Kozlov, Yashin...all gone. And all they've signed is Jon Sim. Who the fuck is Jon Sim?

Maybe not as bad as the GMs from Buffalo though.

Signing players who the Red Wings think are washed up is usually not a good idea.

He's fast, tenacious and has a pretty decent shot. He doesn't like to pass, and he falls a lot. He should do pretty well for you guys. And I don't think he's very popular with other players.

New York Islanders sign forward Ruslan Fedotenko to a two-year contract.

Allright! Between him and this Joe Sim character the Isles should be just below mediocre - maybe even "pretty bad". SWEET!

I think I might get signed next, guys! YES! Maybe I should learn how to skate, at least? Meh, why bother?

I had an Islanders player tell me Jason Blake is the most selfish player he has ever played with. He says Blake doesn’t treat the younger players well at all. Do you really want this guy in your dressing room? Covering Team USA in the past, I can tell you that several of his American teammates made similar comments about him then.

^ Who said that?

I'm trying to remember if he and Peca played together. It'd be nice to see Peca come back to the Island. He might fit nice with Guerin and Comrie.
