It's like a whole new team. (mostly smurfs)

Gionta - five-year, $25 million
Camalleri-five-year, $30-million
Gomez - $7.35 million for the next 5 years? ha ha!


Gainey also said that all of Wednesday's additions would likely mean unrestricted free agents Saku Koivu, Alex Kovalev and Alex Tanguay all would not return.
Cammalleri and Gionta have proved that even though they are small they can still play. the Gomez contract is a joke, as has never really been more than a second line center, but maybe playing with Cammalleri and Gionta can change that.

Saku Koivu has expressed some interest in playing with his brother in MIN, its gonna be weird seeing him in another jersey

Hockey Canada unveils men's camp invites
http://www.ctvolympics.ca/hockey/new...tml?cid=rsstsn

The list of invitees for Canada's 2010 Olympic men's hockey team orientation camp features a mix of Olympic veterans and young up-and-comers.

On Thursday, Hockey Canada released a roster of 46 players who have been invited to the camp, including five goaltenders, 16 defencemen and 25 forwards. The camp will run from August 24-27 at the Pengrowth Saddledome in Calgary.

The list of players includes 40 players with senior international experience, either at the Olympics, IIHF World Championship or World Cup of Hockey/Canada Cup, while 36 of the 46 players played for either the National Junior Team or National Men's Under-18 Team.


The list of five goalies includes three-time Olympian Martin Brodeur (New Jersey Devils), and 2006 Olympian Roberto Luongo (Vancouver Canucks). Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-André Fleury has been invited, as have Steve Mason (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Cam Ward (Carolina Hurricanes). Two-time Stanley Cup champion Chris Osgood was not invited, although many had debated his chances during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Just five of the 16 defencemen invited have Olympic experience: Jay Bouwmeester (Calgary Flames), Dan Boyle (San Jose Sharks), Scott Niedermayer (Anaheim Ducks), Chris Pronger (Philadelphia Flyers), and Robyn Regehr (Calgary Flames). Dion Phaneuf of the Flames gets his shot after being left off the 2006 roster for his youth. Rounding out the mix on defence are: Marc Staal (New York Rangers), Shea Weber (Nashville Predators), François Beauchemin (Anaheim Ducks), Brent Burns (Minnesota Wild), Drew Doughty (Los Angeles Kings), Stéphane Robidas (Dallas Stars), Mike Green (Washington Capitals), Dan Hamhuis (Nashville Predators), and Chicago Blackhawks duo Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook.


Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby highlights the list of forwards. The group of 25 has 10 from the 2006 Olympic team roster, including Shane Doan (Phoenix Coyotes), Simon Gagné (Philadelphia Flyers), Dany Heatley (Ottawa Senators), Jarome Iginla (Calgary Flames), Rick Nash (Columbusn Blue Jackets), Joe Sakic (Colorado Avalanche), Martin St-Louis (Tampa Bay Lightning), Eric Staal (Carolina Hurricanes), Joe Thornton (San Jose Sharks), Vincent Lecavalier (Tampa Bay Lightning). Youngsters getting a chance are: Jeff Carter (Philadelphia Flyers), Ryan Getzlaf (Anaheim Ducks), Milan Lucic (Boston Bruins), Patrick Marleau (San Jose Sharks), Andy McDonald (St. Louis Blues), Brenden Morrow (Dallas Stars), Corey Perry (Anaheim Ducks) Michael Richards (Philadelphia Flyers), Derek Roy (Buffalo Sabres), Patrick Sharp (Chicago Blackhawks), Ryan Smyth (Colorado Avalanche), Jordan Staal (Thunder Bay, Ont./Pittsburgh, NHL) Jonathan Toews (Winnipeg, Man./Chicago, NHL) and Dan Cleary, who has impressed with the Detroit Red Wings. One youngster not included on the list is Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos, who drew attention during his performance at the 2009 world championship.


Although three-time Olympian Sakic has been injured and missed much of the 2008-09 season, executive director Yzerman said he is a big part of this list
not to sound like a homer, but im surprised that Drew Doughty would get an invite in front of Kris Letang

good for Scuderi, he deserves to get paid

We better go sign Beachemen. He said he wants to play for the Pens and he is one tough customer.

How about Larose (Carolina) for Geno's wing? That could be a good fit

I want a legitimate sniper with Sid or Geno. So sue me. Besides, if the salary cap keeps coming down, starting next year, they may have to seriously consider doing it anyway.

Actually they did, but why let more ridiculous Gill bashing to get in the way of the facts?

Again, salary cap. If that cap drops below $50 million in the next 2 seasons (they're already predicting a $4 million decrease next season), don't be surprised if they consider it or pull the trigger on it. Remember, he was rumored to be trade bait this winter before signing his extension, so don't think it can't happen.

Good for Scuds - he was awesome here last year and you can't blame him for wanting to cash in. But the Kings grossly overpaid for him. IMO he isn't worth more than Mark Eaton is getting, which is $2 million per season.

Beauchemin is getting similar offers to Scuderi. He ain't coming here unless he significantly drops his price.

I wouldn't mind Chad LaRose for the 2nd line if they can't re-sign Tank.

Crapola!

Scuderi goes to the Kings for +$3M per?

He shut Ovechkin down pretty much single-handedly.

I'll miss him, more than GILL, for sure.

I wouldn't say he shut down Ovechkin. Ovechkin had 8 goals in that series. He did a good job though.
