HRM Vol. 4: Brashear Back to Capitals, Modano Drawing Interest from Wild

The latest information to hit my desk!

The New York Rangers waived veteran enforcer Donald Brashear today, and there is some rumblings coming from a source at the Capitals that suggests the team is interested in bringing the enforcer back. He has only one year remaining on his contract, and the Capitals lacked a fighting presence all of last season. There is no one conceivable that is in the system that could bring what Brashear does. Don’t kid yourselves with Brandon Sugden.

Meanwhile, the Stars announced today that Mike Modano will not be returning. Although I have personally heard that the Sharks may be a likely team to make him an offer, the real team that is doing so are the Minnesota Wild. According to our various reports, come July 1, the Wild will make an offer to Modano, so that he can finish his career where it began, in Minny.

HRM Vol. 3: Rangers Interested In Koivu, Devils Tango With Sykora

What a busy afternoon it has been! We promise this will be our last report of the day to give my fingers a rest!

The New York Rangers have expressed interest in Saku Koivu to be the team’s number one center. There is no word from my partner Loeb on if the two parties have actually contacted each other yet, but there is a mutual interest between the two.

Expect Koivu to come cheap, and on the first of July, the two parties will be in contact.

The Devils also have a busy morning on their hands as well. HRM has already reported the Devils interest in center Matt Cullen, and given their latest trend of bringing back the good ole boys, it is heavily expected amongst our inner sources that the Devils will look to sign Sykora to a one year deal.
