Free Agent Signings For Monday

The weekend is over and it is back to NHL teams signing free agents at a break neck speed. Here are the weekends signings, with links to go further back into the free agent frenzy.

Today, Pittsburgh signed John LeClair from the Flyers. TSN's story is here. LeClair's years as an NHL star are probably over. He would be best filling a Dave Andreychuk type role for some team, but on Mario Lemieux's club, this isn't necessary. I don't think the LeClair signing will do much to help the Pens. Pittsburgh also resigned Josef Melichar. TSN's story is here.

Montreal resigns their captain Saku Koivu. TSN's story is here.

New York Islanders resigned Oleg Kvasha and Arron Asham. TSN's story is here.

Vancouver resigns Sami Salo. TSN's story is here.

San Jose resigns Patrick Marleau and Marco Sturm. TSN's story is here.

Columbus resigns Rotislav Kleska, Pascal LeClaire and Tim Jackman. TSN's story is here.

Dallas resigns Jason Arnott. TSN's story is here.

New York Rangers resign Tom Poti. TSN's story is here.

Los Angeles resigns Joe Corvo. TSN's story is here.

Carolina resigns Pavel Brendl and Bruno St. Jacques. TSN's story is here.

Minnesota signs Daniel Tjarnqvist from Atlanta. TSN's story is here. Tjarnqvist is a very fast trapping checker who should fit in very well in Jacques Lemaire's Minnesota system. I think this will go down as a very good signing.

Since qualifying offers automatically expire tonight, I expect more restricted free agent signings to comed tonight.
