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.
