    Just got the great news today! The Devils resign Patrick Elias for 7 YEARS. :rock  :rock  So freakin happy. I thought he was a goner.

    They also re-signed Jaime Langenbrunner.

    Here's a list of other players signed away and re-signed. The other huge name besides Elias, is Rob Blake going back to the Kings.

    I'll update when some other big names sign, unless someone else does it.

    Well, I'm not getting my hopes up yet, but the Bruins signing Chara and Savard is at least a step in the right direction.

    Chara and Savard are HUGE signings for the Bruins. Especially Chara. You just picked yourself up a #1-#2 defenseman.

    I agree, those were some huge signings, but after being a Bruins fan for awhile you learn not to get your hopes up. Also, while Chara will help shore up the defense for sure, what the Bruins really need and haven't had for a while are some really good shooters. But free agency has just started, so we'll see what develops.

    I can't believe McKee is gone from Buffalo! My heart weeps for their defense. The best shot blocker even out blocking most goalies in the lague. I wonder who in St Louis sold their soul for that one.

    I also wonder who the Sabres will pick up in his place. So many good guys came out of Rochester during the playoffs and played like veteran professionals.
