[Updated] LHinks: Gomez goes, Bouwmeester signs, Heatley waffles

[Updated in comments with Roloson post-signing discussion]

The NHL passed into its free agent frenzy period overnight er, today at noon, but the biggest names moved last night -- and we're not talking househunting in Vancouver, either. The big stuff, followed by Islanders bits after the jump:

  • Scott Burnside looks at the younger, physical invitees to USA Olympic camp. Obviously I'm happy Kyle Okposo is there, but that roster excites me overall.
  • At the end of Greg Logan's article today he says Islanders pick Anton Klementyev will play for London in the OHL. Giggity.
  • Remember those whispers that the Islanders knew Calvin de Haan was on the radar of teams picking before 16? B.D. and Doug each came back from the draft backing that story up [IslandersIndependent] [IslesOfficial'sOutlook].
  • It's funny with the draft: We go in with our average rankings for all these prospects, but the complex routes of communication mean there is great disagreement about where some of these kids rank, and great misdirection by GMs who think they've got a line on a real gem. When a GM/scouting team beats a rival to the prize, they're not going to sour relations by coming out and saying so. But sometimes the real circumstances filter out...
