With Don Maloney the new GM for Phoenix, the Assistant GM post is now vacant with the Rangers. New York Newsday is reporting that Mark Messier is the leading candidate for the position. Quick – put in a good word for me. Dobber for GM!
Corey Locke has 16 points in the AHL playoffs and Bob Gainey has indicated that he will get a long look in camp. He was starting to look like a career minor leaguer, but keep an eye on him.
Mike Johnson, Radek Bonk, Aaron Downey and David Aebischer will not receive contract offers from the Habs. They will become UFA's.
Drew Miller, ranked 308 in the DobberHockey Fantasy Prospects List, saw some time with Selanne and McDonald last night and was a big part of their goal. His appearance and performance is enough to get him into the top 200, as it would seem he is a little closer (and a little more of a sure thing) than I thought.
Vince Bellissimo, 183 on my prospects list and a former Carolina prospect, has signed to play in the Swiss league. Needless to say, he has plummeted on the list.
Phoenix has apparently hired Don Maloney to be their general manager.
