Let me make this very clear: Veteran forward Ray Whitney is not walking through that door. One of the game's greats, Jaromir Jagr, is not walking through that door. Rick Nash is not walking through that door. But hey, Garnet Exelby is! What? That's not who you were expecting? Since the start of free agency, Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli has been open about the club's hunt for a vet...

Only nine days after being acquired by the Dallas Stars, center Derek Roy had shoulder surgery and will be out until November. According to Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News, Roy, who was added in a trade that sent Steve Ott and Adam Pardy over to the Buffalo Sabres, had the procedure done Wednesday in Dallas. Heika reported Wednesday that Roy was cleared medically for the...

Nieuwendyk: No plans to move Morrow

With a push to return to the playoffs, Dallas Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk has made some drastic changes to the roster this offseason. But one change he doesn't plan to make is moving the captain, Brenden Morrow. We had a good talk the other day, and I told him I very much believe theres a place for him on this team, Nieuwendyk told Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News. I told...

Stars give Ritchie, Vance 3-year entry-level deals

The Dallas Stars have signed forward Brett Ritchie and defenseman Troy Vance to three-year, entry-level contracts. Dallas announced the deals Wednesday for the pair of 19-year-olds who were drafted by the Stars in 2011. Ritchie split the 2011-12 season between the Sarnia Sting and Niagara Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League, posting 45 points (24 goals, 21 assists) in 53 games...

Bruins Sign Veteran Exelby

                        Exelby has always been a tough defenseman and is always willing to drop the gloves. The Boston Bruins have signed veteran defenseman Garnet Exelby to a one year contract.  This move will help Providence more than Boston, but Exelby is an adequate option to put into the lineup if an injury occurs to a starting defenseman.  Exelby is a very tough...

Stars give Bachman $625K deal

The Dallas Stars have signed goaltender Richard Bachman to a $625,000 contract for next season. Dallas also Thursday signed forward Colton Sceviour to a two-way contract for the 2012-13 season.

Derek Roy Injury and A Few Other New Tidbits

First off, the stunner of the day comes from Mike Heika. "Derek Roy had shoulder surgery today. Out until November. More to come." Even better is that it looks like that'll be late November till he's ready to play again. He'll probably still be able to condition and skate, but he loses valuable time in camp getting used to his linemates and learning the system...

Signing Jagr wraps up Stars' moves

After quite a flurry that coincided with the opening of NHL free agency in early July, Dallas Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk admits that with the club signing Jaromir Jagr to a one-year contract on July 3 for $4.55 million, the Dallas brass can finally take a breather and get some much-needed time off. "No, I think I'm going to the lake next week and turning my phone...

Brenden Morrow Perhaps Not An Option After All

Yesterday we cited a rumor that Dallas Stars captain and left winger Brenden Morrow could be involved in trade discussions and thatthe Rangers might be one team to take a look. Morrow had previously played on Brad Richards' wing when Brad was a member of the Dallas organization. But if you believe Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk, then Brenden Morrow is not going to be moved anywhere...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Morrow, Ghostbuster

The 2011-12 season was one that Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow would just as soon forget. The 33-year-old power forward was limited to 57 games and 11 goals due to a neck problem (which also caused pain in his shoulders and upper back) that also rendered him much less effective on the ice. Morrow, who has scored 20-plus goals seven times in his career and scored 33 in 2010...

Bruins Add Depth, Competition for Final Spots with Signings of Lane MacDermid, Garnet Exelby

The Bruins still haven't made any major moves this offseason, but they did continue to round out their depth on Wednesday. Boston re-signed restricted free agent forward Lane MacDermid and signed unrestricted free agent defenseman Garnet Exelby, and both will have a chance in camp to compete for spots with the big club. Both players signed one-year, two-way deals. MacDermid will...

Kevin Freiheit: The French Connection

I come home to find out that Derek Roy will miss some time in Dallas. Stars GM said Roy could have played through it, but ``we want the best Derek Roy we can get.'' Also, it's good to hear the French Connection getting a statue. If you didn't see it yesterday, here's a short clip of Patrick Kaleta participating in the Home Run Derby. And yes, he hit more...

GARTH: Caveat Emptor

Let the buyer beware. Derek Roy's dinged Buffalo Wing was a "suicidal hot" (inside Buffalo reference) topic of conversation on Thursday night. During the second period intermission of the Blue vs. Gold prospects scrimmage, Sabres GM Darcy Regier, fielded question about a a variety of topics. The one topic that was immediately broached by the media was the Derek Roy...
