Still testing, but making progress. You can use the forum and fiddle around with it. I will be posting a couple of quick and easy features for you.

The Red Wings have signed Ville Leino to a two-year deal worth $800K per.


The Leafs have signed Francois Beauchemin to a three-year contract. Unless Kaberle gets moved, Beauchemin’s untapped offensive potential will remain stifled here.


The Sens have signed Alexei Kovalev. Details and analysis to come.


Andrew Raycroft has signed on to be the new backup in Vancouver, AKA the Maytag Repairman. Although, last year Luongo was hurt so the repairman was actually needed…


Players who elect to take their team to salary arbitration cannot sign offer sheets with other teams as restricted free agents, which is why Jiri Hudler will need to be traded if the Red Wings don’t like the amount they think he will get. That also rules out, from offer sheets: Travis Zajac, Nik Zherdev, Ryan Callahan, James Wisniewski, Matt Hunwick, Colby Armstrong, Nigel Dawes, Daniel Winnik, Tuomo Ruutu, Aaron Johnson, Clarke MacArthur, Kyle Wellwood, Nate Thompson, Matt Smaby, Tomas Plekanec, Aaron Johnson, Denis Grebeshkov, Kyle Brodziak and Milan Jurcina.

Atlanta signed another depth goalie yesterday in Peter Mannino


The Flames signed Jason Jaffray. He could see a few games with the big club this year, but is not relevant fantasy-wise.


The Pens signed Chris Lee, an offensive defensemen who will help WBS make up for the graduation of Goligoski.


Remember how insurance paid for 80% of Steve Sullivan’s salary for a couple of years while he was out? The Tennessean is reporting that insurance won’t cover his back again. It only makes sense – how dumb would insurance companies have to be to do that? So the Preds were really under the gun to Sullivan and had this other factor to consider.
