NHL off-season 2011

Philadelphia Flyers have acquired the rights to Ilya Bryzgalov from Phoenix for a 3rd round pick in 2012, Matt Clackson (UFA), and other conditional picks.

Bob McKenzie says that Bryzgalov's contract demands were off the charts giving Phoenix no choice but to trade his rights.

Phoenix didn't get much in return (Clackson is UFA WTF?), however Philly will be in tough with the salary cap if they sign Bryz to the contract he wants.

Currently they have 18 players signed, with only $430K left under the cap. [capgeek]

Even if the cap goes up it still won't give them enough room. A trade plus burying Leighton's contract in the minors will be necessary.

So Jagr back to the NHL is not going away in the least. Apparently Jagr's agent has contacted four teams in the NHL while also negotiating with Jagr's old KHL team Avangard Omsk.

The teams that Jagr's agent has contacted are Detroit, Pittsburgh, Rangers, and Montreal.

And who exactly is Jagr's agent? This guy:

Completely random thought i just had. The last few winners of the cup were:

Detroit

Pittsburgh

Chicago

Boston

Couldn't have come at a better time. NFL is fucked for a season and the NBA is kinda fucked too (?). Next year just might be a HUGE year for the sport in the states.

Carry on.

Looks like Bryzgalov will hit the UFA market and he will be asking for the moon.

Holmgren: "We are continuing to try and reach an agreement with Ilya, but it is safe to say that we are not close to achieving this.â€

Jeff Carter to Columbus for Voracek, 1st round, 3rd round... That might give the Flyers the cap space they need to sign Bryzgalov to a Kovalchuk contract.

Is the Bryzgalov contract the longest one in the league right now (besides Dipietro)?

Colorado is looking for a #1 goalie now. What's the matter? The Eliott/Anderson trade didn't pan out like you expected? Idiots.

I think it panned out just as they expected. They lost most of their games, giving them a better draft pick this year. They weren't going to resign Anderson this year and I don't think Anderson wanted to play for them any longer.

I don't know about that... I just think that their scouting staff screwed up on Elliott's worth.

Apparently the Leafs did not want to give up Kadri and Kumelin to get either Carter or Richards. Burke is an idiot, right?

Exactly. The Habs will not move Gomez this year for that very reason.

Apparently the NHLPA is looking into claims that the Predators didn't submit their qualifying offers to their RFAs on time. If that's the case these players can all become UFAs. Oops.

Talks between Ehrhoff and the Islanders, who they acquired yesterday from Vancouver, have completely broken down, and now the Isles are trying to trade his rights. If this happens will he be the first player whose rights have been traded twice in the same free agency period?

EDIT: He just got traded to Buffalo for a 4th round pick, the same price the Isles paid to get his rights in the first place.
