The Caps signed promising prospect Oskar Osala to a three-year entry-level deal. Osala is ranked 290 on my prospects list and is fully profiled (from a fantasy standpoint) in my Fantasy Prospects Report.
Patrick Eaves has signed a three-year deal with Carolina. $4.2 million, which is a tad high for a Band-Aid Boy, but he's still young so there's hope.
The rankings are up. Sorry about the lateness. I question the wisdom of releasing my guides on the first of the month! Anyway, I usually don't spend a lot of time on the May and June rankings, because there is not a whole lot of new information to add.
