Here are a few more minor moves from around the NHL today.
Jul 4, 2011, 12:55 PM EST
The Capitals signed Danny Richmond while the Sabres agreed to terms with Mike Weber during this holiday afternoon.

The Sharks and Wild shocked the hockey world by making their second big trade in a month tonight. This time around, the Wild received the immediate upgrade by nabbing Dany Heatley for Martin Havlat. Read all about the impact for both teams in this post.

You’d think that Christian Ehrhoff or Brad Richards’ big, front-loaded deals would be the most obvious violations of the NHL’s CBA this summer. Instead it’s the Flyers’ relatively modest five-year, $9 million deal with Max Talbot that might be voided.

The Panthers might be the most dramatically different team in the NHL once the 2011-12 starts. But have they dramatically improved their team in the process? PHT takes an in-depth look at the team’s biggest additions.

Sidney Crosby and Boris Valabik might have an awkward reunion at Penguins training camp after the team signed the defenseman to a one-year, two-way contract.
Jul 3, 2011, 5:18 PM EST
The Predators moved on quickly after dealing off Cody Franson and Matt Lombardi while acquiring disappointing defenseman Brett Lebda. Signing possible spark plug forward Niclas Bergfors should do the trick.
Jul 3, 2011, 4:35 PM EST
Tomas Vokoun’s surprise (and cheap) signing in Washington showed that he learned a lesson after Evgeni Nabokov’s failed free agent campaign last year: When to swallow your pride.
Jul 3, 2011, 12:45 PM EST
The Leafs and Predators swing a deal that sees the Predators clear up salary space and the Leafs gain a solid defenseman and potentially a very useful forward.

After the free wheeling and spending the Caps and Sabres have done this offseason, they find themselves in a salary cap bind and a few of their own players to retain. So what happens now?
Jul 3, 2011, 1:31 AM EST
Florida wasn’t done shopping after their crazy spending spree on Friday as they locked up former Capitals tough guy Matt Bradley to a two-year deal on Saturday.
Jul 3, 2011, 12:55 AM EST
The Oilers locked up their 2011 number one pick in Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Now the question is… Will he play in Edmonton next season?
Jul 2, 2011, 10:50 PM EST
Four teams made a few lighter impact signings on Day 2 of free agency. We’ll give you the quick once-over on those deals.
Jul 2, 2011, 8:01 PM EST
We can say the Capitals are officially strong contenders for the Stanley Cup now that they’ve locked up Tomas Vokoun to be their goalie next season at a discount price.
Jul 2, 2011, 5:56 PM EST
The NHL probably won’t contest Brad Richards’ new contract with the Rangers, but in a way, it pretty much perpetuates the same cap-circumventing loophole work that made the league come down hard on the Devils’ first contract with Ilya Kovalchuk. This post compares those deals to show that the Richards deal should get through, but carries the same spirit.
Jul 2, 2011, 5:03 PM EST
The Red Wings hope to replace some of Brian Rafalski’s production by committee. Signing former Sharks defenseman Ian White could help them do that.
Jul 2, 2011, 4:20 PM EST
The Kings continued their transformation into the Flyers of the West with the addition of Simon Gagne. His health makes him a risk, but this post details why his two-year, $3M contract might be the best bargain of free agency so far.
Jul 2, 2011, 3:51 PM EST
The Maple Leafs fell short of getting Brad Richards, settling for Tim Connolly at two-years, $9.5 million. Will injury-prone Connolly be worth the shorter-term risk?
Jul 2, 2011, 2:06 PM EST
Jaromir Jagr explains why he chose the Philadelphia Flyers over the Pittsburgh Penguins and other suitors … and he claims it’s not all about money.
