    I shall miss Jeff tremendously.
    Would not be a bad idea to go after Gunn - unless he's got an ace in the hole.

    In other, happier news, Jeff Lerg's come off the IR and will be joining the Devils' ECHL affiliate - Trenton.

    Petry has signed or will sign today with Edmonton - or Oklahoma City (new AHL location). Not a big surprise. Somewhat disappointing ... if the season had ended differently, I'm wondering if his decision would have changed.

    Friday removed any shred of doubt about this season's fate. A lot of decisions will be made soon - outbound and inbound.
    It could be an interesting week.

    Please watch the NMU/FSU semifinal. That's how you play when the season is on the line.

    Good point but sources have told me the loophole still exists. It will be fixed with the next CBA.

This is the tactic Blake Wheeler used to go to Boston.

    No, that rule changed a couple years ago. Buffalo has until July 15th the summer after he graduates to sign him or he becomes a free agent and can go anywhere.

    Thanks for the info. I (obviously) didn't know the rule changed. Guess I'm living in the past...

    Actually, I believe the only way he can become a free agent is if he finishes his college eligibility, does not sign with the pro team that drafted him, and either sits out for a year or joins a pro team in another league that does not honor NHL draft rights. He still might be Buffalo property under those circumstances if he tries to reenter the NHL...
    So he would have to sit out an extra year after he graduates if Buffalo doesn't sign him?
