More Signings and Roster Moves

Since my last free agent post we have some more signings and trades.

Roberto Luongo's arbitration hearings are over and he is signed with Florida for next year. TSN's story is here. Luongo is unhappy with the Panthers taking him to arbitration, but at least they have him signed.

Tampa Bay resigned captain Dave Andreychuk. TSN's story is here.

Buffalo acquired Toni Lydman from Calgary for a 2006 3rd round draft pick. TSN's story is here. Lydman will be a solid defenceman for the Sabres.

Atlanta traded Kip Brennan to Anaheim for Mark Popovic. TSN's story is here. This is a minor trade and does not appear to have been done for salary cap reasons as neither are very expensive. Popovic has potential that Brennan doesn't, so I see Atlanta as a minor winner.

Montreal resigns Andrei Markov. TSN's story is here. They also signed 2004 draft pick Mark Streit from Switzerland. TSN's story is here.

Ottawa signed Andrej Meszaros ot an entry level contract. TSN's story is here.

Anaheim resigned Samuel Pahlsson. TSN's story is here.

Some of these moves are going to be important this year when we look at it in hindsight. More moves are still to come, some which may be very important, although most of the free agent frenzy is over.
