  • What’s old is new again in Buffalo as the Sabres have reacquired the services of 34 year old defenseman, Henrik Tallinder in exchange for 22 year old forward, Riley Boychuk. In the 146 games Tallinder has played in New Jersey he has tallied 6 goals, and 20 assists for 26 points. As for Boychuk, he has yet to crack an NHL line-up but has recorded 17 points in 44 games for the Texas Brahmas of the CHL.
  • Mark Fraser of the Toronto Maple Leafs has filed for salary arbitration after completing his one year $600,00 contract last season. He recorded 8 assists last season. The 26 year old has 16 points in 143 career games played.
  • As reported yesterday we are still awaiting the signing of many quality players. Check up daily to see if these players were signed!
