FRIDAY NEWS / SIGNINGS *UPDATED ALL DAY*

*TSN rumors the Ducks are looking to trade or dump Vishnevski.

*The Sabres have signed Tim Connolly to a multi-year deal. Terms not released.

*As Earl Sleek has pointed out, the Ducks have signed D Vitali Vishnevski to a 1-year $1.55 million deal. Gad the Duck's defence looks ...well...mighty!

*Sorry Hodge, Peter Schaeffer is NOT coming to Vancouver. It looks like Ottawa has signed him for 4-years at $8.4 million.

*The Panthers have signed D Mike Van Ryn to a 4-year deal today, avoiding arbitration. It seems that everything is going right for the Panthers this offseason.

*The Canucks have officially signed Exile D Yannick Tremblay to a 1-year $600,000 contract. DON'T break out the champagne!

*Chicago F Pavel Vorobiev has signed in Russia and will not play in the NHL this season.

*Sabres fans are in an uproar over a new jersey that could be implemented this season. Sportsnet reports that over 20,000 fans have signed an online petition in protest, forcing Sabres management to rethink this bone-headed idea. Personally, I love the current jerseys, so why f--k with a good thing?

The current Sabres logo is OK, the steam snortin' Buffalo is cool, but they are the Sabres, not the Buffalo Buffalo's. Tough to make a logo from a sword though. The blue and gold set them apart. The colors they have now belong to 10 others teans as well. And..diagonal lines should only ever be employed in womens hockey. I say that only because I got used to seeing my daughters team wear it the past few seasons.

Yay! Vishnevski gets a very manageable $1.55 M 'award' from the arbiter!

Must have read my letter.

A Vishnevski jersey????

That was a great post by you. But I don't feel bad for Duck fans when they complain about losing Salei, when they get Chris fucking Pronger to replace him!!!!!!
