GM Joe signed veteran defenseman, Karlis Skrastins, formerly of the Panthers to a 2-year contract. I love that Nieuwy brought in a veteran d-man. Now Robi doesn’t have to babysit the kids all by himself. Skraskins was also compared to Mattias Norstrom, whose absence was felt this season.
Sadly, this means that Sydor’s not coming back and that Zubie’s chances are becoming slim. I want Zubov back, like, crazy bad. There are rumors that he might sign with St. Louis or the Rangers. He can’t do that! Zubie is a Star and nothing else. I just want him to be happy, though. He’ll get his number retired here, anyway.
Also, Jonas Gustavsson won’t make his decision for a while yet. Surprise, surprise. It’s looking more and more like he’ll be a Maple Leaf by the time it’s all over.
