It’s Fourth of July weekend, so I simply will not be around, and I’m assuming Jeremy won’t be either. However, for the Brit jurgenno, this may be a weekend of mourning, so he may be around to update on any big news (I kid with jurgenno, Brits are OK in my book, minus the extra U’s in words).
Late last night, news broke of the Islanders offering Ilya Kovalchuk 10 years, $100 million. Not sure if that’s true or not, but considering the Islanders are still paying Alexei Yashin and Rick DiPietro, I really don’t know what Charles Wang is thinking.
Also, Sheldon Souray cleared waivers. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone traded for him though, as teams need to move salary to take on Souray’s contract.
Use this as your open thread for the day. Maybe I’ll chime in later, but I don’t think Senor Patron will leave me in any shape to do so. Play nice.
