Want a sneak preview of the upcoming Fantasy Prospects Report (out June 1)? Here is what we have profiled for James van Riemsdyk (CLICK HERE)
According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Simon Gagne passed baseline and impact tests with flying colors. Gagne: "Symptomwise, I think I'm 100 percent". Now he needs to get back in shape. He will be fine for next year. (until he takes another big hit – here we are again with the Eric Lindros watch)
According to an interview with the Fan 590, Ken Holland stated that Franzen will play at some point in the Final and that he has been cleared to practice. He will miss Game 1, however.
Chris Chelios will miss Game 1 as well.
There goes my theory – the Canucks have extended Alain Vigneault's contract. Bad news for Canuck owners, as the dismal offense will continue now. Zzzzzzzz
Karl Alzner signed a three-year entry level deal with Washington. His upside is 40 points, as his skill-set is focused in other areas.
Atlanta signed a couple of late-round prospects. Forward Rylan Kaip (ninth round, 2003) and rearguard Arturs Kulda (seventh round, 2006). Neither have fantasy value right now.
Dallas extended their co-GMs Brett Hull and Les Jackson by three years.
The Devils re-signed Mike Mottau and Sheldon Brookbank.
TB prospect Marek Kvapil has signed to play in the Czech league next year. He is ranked 333 on my prospect list, low because of his long shot to make it to the NHL
Rem Murray has signed to play in Austria.
Johan Ryno, 84 on my prospects list for Detroit and fading fast, has signed to play in Sweden next season.
The Devils signed Anssi Salmela, a 24-year-old undrafted prospect from Finland. He has some offensive potential and there is room on the New Jersey blue line.
