    Let me know if any of these guys have been signed/traded/abducted by Cher

    Updates:

    My top clients are garnering a lot of interest already, so I figured I should keep everyone updated...

    Gagne has received a good short-term contract offer with a middle of the road team (<4/year)
    Connolly has also received a similar short-term contract from a middle of the road team (<4/year)
    Laich has received several offers, and one from a younger rebuilding team has him very interested...(5/year)
    Leino has received a few good offers as well, both from average-ish teams (Close to 4/year)
    Cole has received a very good offer from a top team (~3/year)
    Jokinen has also received a few offers, but one in particular from a Stanley Cup contender has him intrigued (~5/year)

    I'll keep PMing all the people interested in my clients to update them.

    Brunette inks 3-year, $8.25M deal Thrashers

    [​IMG]

    The Atlanta Thrashers are happy to welcome back veteran winger and power play beast Andrew Brunette.

    Brunette agreed to a 3-year deal that will pay him $8.25M over the term. The deal is front-loaded with Brunette earning $3.5M in years 1 and 2, and $1.25M in year 3.

    Brunette's 8 power play goals with Minnesota last year would have been second among Atlanta forwards behind only Andrew Ladd. But all of Brunette's goals came from in front of the net, and his presence there will certainly help us improve on last year's 12th ranked power play.

    Overall Brunette registered 18-28-46 in 82 games for the Wild. Over his career 110 of his 256 goals have come on the power play. Also, in the last 12 years Brunette has missed just 14 regular season games.

    Thrashers Re-Sign Dvorak, Add Brent

    :thrashers

    Forward Radek Dvorak, who came to Atlanta late in the year from Florida, has been re-signed by the Thrashers. His signing was announced at the same time as that of center Tim Brent, who comes over from the Maple Leafs.

    Dvorak's deal will pay him $1.9M per year for 2 years, while Brent will earn $650K for each of the next 2 seasons.

    We were very anxious to re-ink Radek who came over from Florida late in the season. Radek is a critical piece to our penalty kill, plays a gritty two-way game and still possesses great speed. We look forward to seeing our 3rd line of Brunette-Burmistrov-Dvorak.

    Tim Brent is penciled in as our 4th-line center who will also see plenty of time on the PK. We were awful last year on the PK and in the face-off circle. Adding Tim and his >50% face-off success, will go a long way to helping our special teams win draws at both ends of the ice.

    The Thrashers are still looking to make two more moves in free agency before being ready to drop the puck on the 2011-12 season.

    :boltsBolts Bring in Pitkanen
    [​IMG]

    The Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Club announced today that they have signed Finnish defenseman Joni Pitkanen to a massive 5 year deal worth $26,000,000. The deal will pay him $5,300,000 a year. In a short statement, the Lightning GM stated that he was very happy to bring in such a dynamic defenseman, and that he believes Joni could be the final piece of the puzzle. Pitkanen is a 6'3" defenseman born on September 19, 1983 in Oulu, Finland. He was a first round pick by the Philadelphia Flyers in 2002, and has played for the Flyers, the Oilers, and the Hurricanes, before signing with the Lightning.

    Brewer Signs with Atlanta

    [​IMG]

    Atlanta has brought more size, physicality and toughness to its blueline with the signing of Eric Brewer.

    Brewer joins Tobias Enstrom, Dustin Byfuglien, and Zach Bogosian in the Thrashers top-4 on the blueline. He should also be a major contributor in improving Atlanta's penalty- kill, which ranked 27th overall.

    Brewer's deal is $4M per year for 3 years with a limited NTC.

    The Carolina Hurricanes are proud to announce the signings of Scott Hannan and Ville Leino. Scott has signed a 3 year $11.4 million deal and Ville has signed a 5 year $22.5 million deal. We expect Scott to provide veteran leadership lost by Joni Pitkanen and to log big ice time against other teams' top lines. Ville will fit in nicely on either the first line with Eric Staal and Tuomo Ruutu or with Jeff Skinner on the second line.

    Brad Marchand is seriously considering a 4 year 3.75 per offer
    Brandon Sutter has a 5 year 3.09 mill per offer he likes.
    Drew Stafford re-upped with Buffalo.
    Chris Butler and Andrej Sekera are awaiting offers.

    Also, Cogliano is elligible for an offer sheet, as I could not come to terms with his agent.

    The Vancouver Canucks have signed goalie Johan Hedberg to a 1 year deal worth $600,000.

    He will be our backup goalie in the upcoming season, and we hope to get him at least 20 starts.

    :pens welcome free agent winger Erik Cole to the team. The 6 year contract will pay him $3M a year and includes a NTC. His physicality and talent will be huge with his role in the top-6 with either Malkin or Sid.

    :edmonton Signs Brooks Laich (5 years 25 million)

    Brooks will hold down the #1 spot at center for the Oilers. We are thrilled to add a player of Brooks' quality, leadership, size, grit and toughness to a team that quite frankly has been lacking it in recent years. The 20-25 goals and 45-60 points will no doubt he nice, but it was important to give the kids some time to develop and have a strong veteran presence around. We also believe that this signing, along with the acquisitions of Schneider, Vanek, Zubrus, and RNH will mark the beginning of an excellent turn around for this storied franchise.

    We will now seek out a fourth line wing to complete our forward line-up:

    Vanek-Laich-Hemsky
    Hall-Nugent-Hopkins-Eberle
    Zubrus-Horcoff-MSP
    Reddox-Brule-X
    Fraser

    The Avalanche have signed JS Giguere and Mike Smith to contracts. Giggy is a 2 year deal worth $2M per year and a NTC that expires on Jan 1, 2013. Smith signed a 2 year deal worth $1M per. Although they were Plan E for us, we think they can hold the fort for the next couple years.
