On the Beat: Tanguay still available, Boynton signs with Ducks and Shanahan waiting

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:

  • Fluto Shinzawa with a report from Day 3 of the Bruins’ development camp.  Don’t know much about any of those players, so I’ll take Fluto’s word for it.
  • Are the Sabres rebuildingNot necesarily.  Consider the fact that the teams around them have made a lot of moves but not necessarily improved.  If the Sabres play up to their potential, they should have a good chance at making the playoffs next season.
  • The Ducks have signed Nick Boynton to a one-year dealBob Murray is quickly becoming one of my favorites in the business.  He’s no talk, all action.  Good move here to add a veteran defender like Boynton to the Ducks’ back-end.  The team needs more defensemen and Boynton a serviceable 5/6 guy. 
  • Brad Richards could be a possibile target for the Rangers.  Didn’t they just get rid of a big salaried center whose strength was passing?
  • A YouTube video has been created by a Habs fan for Saku Koivu.  Well deserved.
  • Here is the latest from the Predators’ development camp.  Poile always does a good job of running talented young players through the system.
  • Where could Alex Tanguay end upAs I said in my Puck Prospectus article this week, I believe Tanguay is going to be a productive and affordable pick up for some team looking for offense.
  • The Senators are going to make the playoffs this year, says James Gordon of the Ottawa Citizen.  I’ll wait for the Heatley situation to unfold further before making any predictions.
  • Brendan Shanahan wants to return to Jersey and the Devils seem to want him back, but for now both sides are waiting to see how some other transactions unfold.  Nothing wrong with bringing back a veteran like Shanny.
  • Could Antero Niittymaki be on his way to Tampa instead of the KHL?  That team better hope Mike Smith is healthy, because if he isn’t, they will have some big issues.
