Red Wings News:
Great writeup by JJ in reaction to one of the diggers saying the Red Wings could give Dan Cleary $1.5 million, and put him in the minors. Pretty asinine to think that could actually be on anyones mind considering you would essentially be paying for a deadweight player who's salary wouldn't even be fully buried.
From yesterday - According to On The Forecheck's Super Schedule, the Red Wings will have the least amount of travel in the NHL next season. Man, does it feel good saying that.
Red Wings sign center Louis-Marc Aubry to a one-year deal, which pretty much sets up the Griffins roster. Now.. Sign Tomas Jurco, and Teemu Pulkkinen!
The Anaheim Ducks signed Ryan Kesler to a six-year deal worth $41.25 million. HUGE payday for Kesler, but an awful decision by the Ducks. He will be 32 years old when the contract kicks in. Possibly one of the worst contracts handed out this summer.
Free agent defenseman Johnny Oduya signs with the Dallas Stars for two years. Dallas got a good deal in terms of money, but I think Oduya's highly overrated, and won't look all that good in a top-four setting.
Big money invested in a new sports analytic company from Mark Cuban, the owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. This should be pretty interesting to witness, as it could mean a huge movement with analytics in the NHL.
2015 2nd overall pick Jack Eichel chooses not to attend USA's junior camp, so that he can ready himself for his first season pro with the Buffalo Sabres. Smart, or silly?
