    I think the Wild board has already discussed the very likely probability that Sushinsky returns to North America this year.

    And personally, I wouldn't get to interested in Miro Zalesak. He failed to crack the Sharks in all the time he was here, then he couldn't stick with Washington when they acquired him. I doubt that he'd be willing to give up job security in Europe for what would probably be a slim chance to make an NHL club.

    I have no idea about his ability, but I believe the Caps let him go because he couldn't pass a physical after an injury.

    IIRC, Zalesak was assigned to Hershey, AHL, and cleared waivers. He reported to Hershey, but did not practice/skate with the team. He had an out in his contract to return to Europe if he was assigned to the AHL and he chose to leave when Sodertalje offered the contract within a few days of his being assigned. I don't recall any issues with a physical/injury. You may be thinking of Majesky who was not able to pass his physical at the start of the season after suffering a knee injury at last year's World Championships. He stayed with the Caps and after rehabbing played for them.

    Andrej Kollar (Slovakia) is a UFA too.

    With his good showing at the WC's, I think some NHL team may offer him a 450k contract. He is big (6'5) and a good PK-er.

    Are they UFAs or RFAs?

    I thought Phoenix and Ottawa (respectively) still hold their right...

    Bezina I think is a UFA. He was signed and then wasnt RFA-ed. TSN confirms my opinion.

    I think Nordquist is Hawks property.
