Christmas in July

The free agent enthusiasm began immediately on Wednesday, July 1, but there was some movement the day before. The Montreal Canadiens made a big deal with the New York Rangers sending center Scott Gomez to the hub and Christopher Higgins to the blue shirt. Several other players, especially prospective Ryan McDonough, who arrived in New York, were involved in the deal. Gomez is a recognized man. He assisted a total of 40 times, excluding one season, and made 50 posts four times. Higgins reached a plateau of 20 goals in three of the four seasons, and would probably have reached 20 goals last year if he hadn’t missed 25 games due to groin and hand injuries.

On Wednesday, the Montreal Canadiens became even more active. They signed Brian Gionta, who played very well with Scott Gomez in New Jersey, and won the Stanley Cup together in 2002/03. It will be interesting to see what you can do together in Montreal, to say the least. Habs also grabbed another forward, Mike Cammalleri, and signed him a five-year, $ 30 million contract. But they didn’t stop there. GM Bob Gainey also chose defenders Yaroslav Spaisek and Hull Gil. Canadians have bid on Tomash Precanek, Matt Dagostini, Kyle Chipchula and Guillaume Latin Dress, but Alex Tanguay, Alex Tanguay, Saku Koivu and Mathieu Schneider appear to be in the race.

The Chicago Blackhawks were also big news, with an amazing 12-year contract with prolific goal scorer Marian Hossa. Chicago seems to be in the process of winning the Stanley Cup, although some have expressed concern that the Hawks are in trouble when they have to sign Patrick Kane and Jonathan Tows next year, especially as salary increases go down. .. This season, regardless of disability. With the team they have now, they seem to be able to do just that. If the Blackhawks want to keep Hossa, Kane, and Toes in 2010/11, I think they have to leave defender Bryan Campbell and his $ 7 million salary … Falcons are Thomas Kopekki and John. It is also signed by Madden. , Who can score 20 goals each. Visit:-

The Atlanta Thrashers signed a four-year contract with Nik Antropov to send Garnet Excelby and Colin Stuart to Toronto, establishing another former reef, Pavel Kubina. Antropov should go well with Ilyakovalchuk in the Star Wing. With Brian Little, Tobias Enstrom, Zach Bogosian, and this year’s selection Evander Kane, there are many promising young men in Atlanta. But it’s still unclear if that’s enough to turn around last year’s disappointing season.
The New York Rangers have signed the flashy winged Marian Gabolic for five years, hoping to stay healthier than Minnesota. Wild then signed another injured player, Martin Havrat, who signed him for six years. Havrat played 81 games last season against the Blackhawks, the longest season ever. I hope he can stay healthy too!

Washington Capitals has signed Mike Nable, a multi-year scorer of 20 goals over the past seven years. This scorer has also scored 30 times. Nable is tough in the corner and should be a good player for the two-time league MVP Alexander Ovechkin.

Edmonton Oilers and Colorado Avalanche sought to address the goal issue by choosing Nikolaika Biblin and Craig Anderson, respectively.
