Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, and I especially hope those of you in BC are still enjoying the long weekend. Here are some Monday morning signings:
- Update (7:15 PM): Ducks have signed towering D-man free agent Andy Sutton.
- Update (4:50 PM): The Sabres have signed free agent Shaone Morrisonn, according to the team's Twitter page.
- As Sean reported last night (and I can now confirm), the Blackhawks have walked away from Antti Niemi and signed Marty Turco to a 1-year contract. *EDIT: Beantown Canuck has a "Where Will Niemi End Up?" pool HERE.
- The Blues have signed Erik Johnson to a 2-year deal.
- The Thrashers have traded Todd White to the Rangers for Donald Brashear and Patrick Rissmiller. Meanwhile, Atlanta's official blogger says that Brashear will be bought out.
Open topic for today: According to this tweet, Niemi's agent has already been approached by 5 teams after the Hawks walked away. Where do you think Niemi will end up?
