Yashin out of Long Island

Yashin will be bought out of his four years remaining on his contract. The 33 year-old, had $26.45 million left on his 10-year for $87.5 million contract. This was the contract in 2001 that laured him away from Ottawa. This was the first of the outrageous contracts Islanders owner Charles Wang has given out. The most recent was Winthrop native Ricky DiPeitro with a 15 year contact. The Islanders will have to pay 2/3 of the remaining amount of the contact and will take a $2.2 million hit. Yashin is now a UFA, don't expect teams to give him more than $4.5 million tops.

One rumor I've heard is Detroit is going to throw as much money as it needs to land JS- Giguere.

Nik Antropov and Toronto agreed to a 2 year, $4.5 million deal. Antropov is cosidered a power-forward with a great set of hands. The 27 year old is 6'6'' and weighs 230 lbs. He had 18 goals, 15 assists in 54 games last year.
Mike Peca one of the league's grittiest and best defensive players wants to stay in Toronto for another season after playing just one year their.
Speaking of the Maple Leafs their captian Mats Sundin is closing in on a 2 year $14.5 million deal.

Vancouver resiged Tyler Pyatt to a 2 year, $3 million contract. The 25 year-old is coming off a career year 23 goals and 37 points.

Red Wings want to resign Rhode Island native Mathieu Schneider. Negocations will begin next week, Schneider wants $110-$13 million, which would make it really hard for them to also sign Danny Markov.

Don't expect Scott Gomez to return to New Jersey next season, when asked if there's been any communications Gomez replied, "None at all."
