According to a translation of an article in allhockey.ru, Alexei Yashin has re-signed a deal with Yaroslav Lokomotiv of the KHL. Do not expect him back in the NHL. Thanks to fzusher in our forum for pointing the way.
Nashville's Colin Wilson, ranked 134 on my Fantasy Prospects List, has opted to return to Boston University for another year instead of turning pro.
The Sens re-signed goaltender Jeff Glass to a one-year deal.
From the Tennessean: The Predators are hoping for further clarification regarding forward Alexander Radulov, who signed a three-year deal to play in Russia earlier this month despite having a year left on his contract with Nashville. The International Ice Hockey Federation is investigating the situation, as well as the contract status of five other players in dispute between the NHL and Russia's Continental Hockey League. All parties have been asked to submit relevant information to the IIHF by Thursday.
Shaone Morrisson was awarded a one-year deal worth just under $2 million. Apparently, the Caps were pretty hard on him in the proceedings, calling him "one dimensional".
The Bruins re-signed Nate Thompson and newly acquired Martin St. Pierre.
Dobber's Fantasy Hockey Guide 2008-09 will be available for instant download (if you purchase it) in THREE days. Also available in French. This guide will be updated frequently throughout the summer, so you just log back in and download it again as needed.
There is a reason why everyone who bought this last year are buying it again this year!
If you haven't bought it yet, or you "split the cost" with a friend so you can save the big five bucks, keep this in mind: this website is free because of the income that I make from this very guide. It doesn't replace the salary that I made when I quit my day job in November of 2006, but it's close enough to keep this site top-notch (running it isn't free). I don't look for handouts - I want earn your money. So buy the guide - that's how I earn it! I will never give in to the pressure or suggestions that I should make this a pay site, and it is thanks to your support.
I have also been approached about making this a magazine for newsstands - that is how huge this guide is now. But I am very happy with DobberHockey as is, and I won't hurt the quality of information that I give you by putting it into a magazine (not to mention the added headaches, haha). I know from my experiences writing for the SCORE Forecaster and for The Hockey News that those magazines are printed in mid-July. So why would I do the same thing and give you aged information? Online is the wave of the future and that is how I will always be giving you your fantasy hockey tips! UP TO THE MINUTE!
Sunday was a big day for Dobber Nation. We've grown: DobberBaseball.com is up and running! If you haven't already, I invite you to have a look around, sign up to the baseball forum, and enjoy! Everyone keeps DobberHockey a secret from your fellow poolies... but if you're not in a baseball pool you can tell your baseball buddies about this new site at least! Thanks to J Status, DobberBaseball's editor-in-cheif and Glen Hoos, our graphics designer.
