As Herc noted, we resigned Ryan Whitney....6 years/24 million, I think that is a bargain for a top young offensive defenseman. I think he was sixth in the NHL among defenseman in points last year as a 24 year old. He still needs work in his own end, but he is really a key part of our PP and is a great puck mover. Good deal.
I am also reading on a number of sites that we are working with Paul Kariya on a 3 year deal. He would look pretty good alongside Sid (although I'd prefer a 2 year deal instead of 3).
