There's a very good chance Ray Emery, who many believe is the Flyers' No. 1 choice to work in tandem with Steve Mason next season, will soon re-sign with the Cup-champion Blackhawks to avoid hitting the market.
Emery's agent, J.P. Barry, met with the Blackhawks on Sunday night after the draft to discuss Emery. Terms of a deal had not been agreed upon yesterday, but the two sides are pretty confident that Emery can remain Corey Crawford's backup next season.
Teams can begin negotiating with free agents beginning tomorrow at noon. Contracts are not allowed to be signed until Friday at noon, when free agency officially opens.
Emery, 30, was an astounding 17-1-0 with Chicago. The common thinking was that he'd be more interested in a raise from the $1.5 million he earned last season to compete for a starting job elsewhere. Apparently, capturing the Stanley Cup while playing a significant share of the...

The Chicago Blackhawks signed Bryan Bickell to a four-year deal reportedly worth $16 million.That's a handsome raise for a guy with just 90 points in 220 regular season games. Apparently Chicago's focused on the nine goals and 17 points he collected in 23 postseason contests. That 18.4 shooting percentage isn't likely to stick around, but he could still be fantasy-relevant...
The Philadelphia Flyers have signed Vincent Lecavalier to a five-year, $22.5 million contract. In other words, the Flyers have won the sweepstakes to arguably the most enticing player on the market. Flyers fans should be happy and analysts should be commending the team for landing a prized asset, right?
The move is a highly questionable one considering where...
Dave Bolland's Game 6 game winner is the last goal he'll score for the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Stanley Cup champions traded Bolland to the Toronto Maple Leafs for three draft picks Sunday at the NHL draft. The Blackhawks received the 51st and 117th picks in this year's draft, and a fourth-rounder next season.
The Boston Bruins had a 2-1 lead with 2 minutes left in Game...

The Hawks, as reported by Eklund, are close on a 3 year, rumored to be $4.5 million deal with Ray Emeryâto remain in Chicago.
I'm told the Hawk strategy going in to unrestricted free agency is to look for Michal Rozsival-like veteran players to approach them (perhaps including Rozsival) on potentially cap friendly short-term dealsâwith the...

The Flyers were among the many teams that spent time at the NHL Draft talking to Vincent Lecavalier. Apparently, they made quite the impression.
Lecavalier is choosing to sign with the Flyers when the free-agency signing period officially begins on Friday. The deal is for five years, worth $4.5 million per year.
Lecavalier holds a place in Flyers' history as being a member...

One of my favorite themes here at AA in the last year has been unearthing Finnish hockey calls. Why Finnish hockey calls? Because Finland, obviously. And because they're awesome. We've seen a couple throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but this video from Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final may be my favorite foreign language clips in the history of this website. Six...

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed veteran center Vincent Lecavalier to a multi-year contract.
The Tampa Bay Lightning let their 33-year-old captain go last week, and the Flyers pounced Tuesday night, signing him to a reported five-year deal worth $22.5 million.
Tampa Bay cut ties with Lecavalier to clear space under a smaller salary cap. The Philadelphia Flyers took advantage...
