The rumor was Vancouver, although it seems not with Nolan and Fedoruk in the mix.

I saw that reported somewhere, and was sad. Now that it seems not to be true, I rejoice slightly in the tiny possibility that, maybe it COULD be Detroit... Oh, don't get my hopes up.

Winchester could be an interesting move, and his contracts tend cheap... hmmm.

If he wants to come on a two-way contract, sure. But generally he's about 1/10th the player some people here tout him as.

People tout him as a big body, great forechecker, good fighter and a guy that's scored 10+ goals twice in his career, despite being a 4th liner.

That seems like a dead on description of Winchester. I don't see what you're complaining about.

Why'd you just accuse me of complaining?

I guess you weren't really complaining, but even so, your statement was off the mark. Nobody here is overhyping him. Certainly not by 10 times.

That was an exaggeration. In any event, I think he has been over-hyped here for years.

Defenseman Scott Hannan has signed a one-year contract with the Calgary Flames. The deal is reportedly worth $1 million.

A very solid signing I think. Regardless, I don't see the Flames making the playoffs.

I like the signing for Calgary, as well.

Bouwmeester-Giordano

Sarich-Babchuk

Hannan-Butler

Carson/Mikkelson

I'm thinking if they can find anyone interested, Sarich could be dealt to give Mikkelson and Carson some playing time.

I think that unless Giordano and Bouwmeester both have career seasons, Calgary's production from the blueline will be very, very limited.

Agreed. There won't be much offensive production from the blueline, but Hannan is a good defensive acquisition for what he signed for. Overall, Calgary is going to have trouble scoring. Their top 6 isn't going to scare anyone, and they will have to win games 2-1 or 3-2 as opposed to 6-5 or 5-4.

That means Kiprusoff will need to be much better.

I am not trying to stir up trouble here; I do however wish to make an observation.

Now that all the skill players are long since signed up. The only up-daters' to this thread are the guys who would like to see the Wings add enforcers...

Holding out hope?

There is little to no chance we will get one. However, i'd rather talk about minor signings and discuss different team's situations than talk about Crosby all day.

*Fredrik Sjostrom to the SEL

*Mikkel Boedker re-signs with Phoenix

*Andre Deveaux signs one-year, two-way contract with the Rangers

Sigh. Its August.

I read Fredrik Sjostrom and immediately thought of Fredrik Olausson.

Sigh. At least you're in the right month. I'm in the wrong year.

Hey, you're not the only one livin' in the past. Whenever I see Andre Deveaux, I immediately think of Boyd Devereaux. The glory years are still fresh in our minds :P

Oh, I'm still back in the '90s. The Wings were looking at some guy this summer and I was thinking, "Hey, give him a mullet and he looks just like that Jagr guy that used to play for Pittsburgh." Yeah, living in the past; waiting for the next Forsberg comeback.

Fortunately for us I think Forsberg may actually be done. It hits me that i'm not a little child anymore when I see Drew Miller on the ice and always(always) think its Marty Lapointe. I damn near cried when Mark Recchi retired. Guys that i've grown up watching are hangin em up, further reminding me that i'm not a youngster anymore :P
