Bolts sign #1 pick
Tampa Bay signed the #1 overall pick from this years draft Steven Stamkos. The contract he signed was a three-year, $2.625 million contract that could be worth up to $11.175 million with incentives.
The Bolts have also signed Ryan Malone, Mark Recchi, Olaf Kolzig, Adam Hall, and Gary Roberts. The Bolts have signed a handful of vets. I think that the only guys that will help them all season long is Malone and Kolzig. Kolzig allows Mike Smith to play the majority of the games and still having a chance to win. Malone brings a hard nose style who can also score. The Lightning also get the number 1 pick signed, resigning big Vinny and still have Martin St. Louis. They also got a new coach in Barry Melrose and will be expected to make the playoffs in his first year.
The Redwings signed Valtteri Flippula to a $15 million contact for 5 years.
Mark Parrish got realsed and will be bought out by the Wild.
Vancouver and Motreal remain hot after Mats Sundin. It looks like he will be in Vancouver.
Mass native John Tortorella is the front runner for the open job on long island.
St. Louis Blues forward Dan Hinote is one of the luckiest guys in the world. Marring former playmate and Jenny McCarthy's sister Amy.
