NHL Morning Papers

NHL Morning Papers (Wednesday Edition): Jonas Gustavsson is the talk of the town, Alexei Kovalev has big hopes for the Senators and Joe Sakic officially retires today

Free Agency

  • Jonas Gustavsson has decided to sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs and the fact that Brian Burke came overseas to talk to him a couple times clearly didn’t hurt.  His numbers from Sweden sure are impressive.  So, with this signing, are the Leafs thinking playoffs?
  • Even though the Stars did not land Gustavsson, new GM Joe Nieuwendyk felt that effort was worthwhile.
  • To make up for not signing Gustavsson, the Stars did sign Jeff Woywitka on Tuesday to a two-year deal.  (Writer’s note: Woywitka is obviously not going to turn into the defenseman many thought he would, but this signing is very low-risk for Dallas.  I think it is a worthwhile move.)
  • Todd Marchant and the Anaheim Ducks have agreed on a two-year contract.
  • The Flames have re-signed Jamie Lundmark and have also signed Jason Jaffray to a two-way, two-year deal.
  • Atlanta has signed Joey Crabb and Nathan Oystrick to new deals.
  • Like the Thrashers, the Red Wings also made some depth signings on Tuesday.
  • Staying in the Southeast Division, the Lightning signed former Wild forward Stephane Veilleux to a one-year pact.
  • Boston has signed goaltender Dany Sabourin to a one-year contract.
