I noted the possibility here last week, and of course Perezhogin's agent denied the rumors, but Alexander Perezhogin has in fact signed to play in the Russian League. Another spot opens up on the Montreal forwards unit. Funny how Don Meehan (his agent) makes no mention of how adamantly he denied that Perezhogin signed last week. I guess this means that whenever Meehan denies something, we can all just ignore it from now on. Right Don? Listen agents (and GM's for that matter): if something leaks to the press, either keep your mouth shut, or tell the truth. (and no, you weren't telling the truth just because Perezhogin hadn't "officially" signed…for all intents and purposes he had and you know it).
Bill Guerin missed San Jose's last game of the season because of the facial injury. He is a UFA now, but his horrible playoffs will hurt his value.
It is looking like Kevin Weekes will walk as a UFA and Al Montoya will be the NY Rangers backup goalie next year.
San Jose captain Patrick Marleau was pointless throughout the Detroit series.
Matt Carle, who saw Mikael Samuelsson slip behind him for Detroit's first goal, was limited to two shifts in the third period.
Patrick O'Sullivan has nine points in eight games for Manchester in the Calder Cup Playoffs. He is 10th in playoff scoring.
Todd Bertuzzi played just 9:45 of hockey last night, and it wasn't because he was benched or left the game – those were his shifts from start to finish: 9:45. These are scary signs we're getting from him these days. Quietly shop him this summer and see if you can't pluck a decent star in return. I'd be uncomfortable owning him at this point.
The people have spoken. Here is the design for the new dobberhockey shirt:
