Arcobello non-tendered: Monday notes

on
Assembled, to the best of our ability, the annual Chicken Tenders list: players who weren’t tendered a qualifying offer, thus becoming unrestricted free agents Wednesday. A late addition: Milford’s Mark Arcobello, not tendered by Arizona after a season in which he played for four NHL teams. (They also non-tendered John Moore, whom they got from […] [Read More]

Qualifying offers in

on
The Islanders announced their qualifying offers, including Kevin Poulin, Kevin Czuczman and Mike Halmo. They also qualified Johan Sundstrom, who signed in Sweden a couple of weeks ago. No great surprise there. That makes Poulin, Czuczman and Halmo restricted free agents come noon Wednesday. In cases like Sundstrom’s, it also retains their NHL rights after […] [Read More]

Adding Boyle: Thursday notes

on
Jaro Halak worked out for the Big Club. Thursday, they went at it again, sending a conditional draft pick to San Jose for veteran defenseman Dan Boyle. If they sign him, it’s more defensive depth, an older guy, obviously (37), but one who’s been a top player for a long time. If not, it’s a […] [Read More]
