Around The NHL

Since i wont be around today, and nothing has happened today in the world of the New York Rangers, ill give a quick recap of some of the news around the NHL
-Stamkos signs with tampa for 875k per year, 3 years (entry level conract) but up to 8.55 million in performance bonuses. I thought they were trying to keep some of the rookie contracts in check. guess not

-Sens re-up Antoine Vermette. Terms were not disclosed. COME ON OTTAWA! DONT KEEP ME IN SUSPENSE! I MUST KNOW HIS SALARY!

- RFA Jay Bouwmeester signs one year deal (and his last contract with florida) before he becomes a UFA who wants to leave florida. good luck getting good prospects for him at the deadline.

-Oilers promote Lowe to president (Anaheim GM Brian Burke would be first lady had they not recently gotten a quite harsh divorce)and hire former vancouver assistant GM Steve Tambellini, father of islander foward Jeff Tambellini.

Thats some of the news around the league. This is a quick little blog. im in a rush and wont be in all day but expect better updates as the week goes on

I am also very interested to see what Vermette was worth to Ottawa, as I will be very interested in seeing the Rangers make a move for him in the future. I like the kid alot!
As for Jay Bouw, I think Florida will probably get some great picks plus roster players for him, wish we could get our hands on him!!!
