"But as this salary cap universe gets better understood, it's important to recognize the importance of another type of "franchise player" -- the loyal Selanne-type, near the end of his career, who repeatedly signs under-market short-term deals with one team only."

Great bit and a great point from Earl at Battle of California on the value of a star like Teemu Selanne signing below-market deals in a salary capped world.

"Not too many times has the Stanley Cup been there," said Satan, who plans to bring the Cup to a charity hockey game, a rally in his hometown and a hospital. "I'm bringing it home."

>>Past (and future?) Islander Miro Satan on having his day with the Cup in Slovakia. Katie Strang, taking over Newsday's Islanders beat, has the latest scraps on Satan (and his Twittering agent) trying to coax a bid from the Isles.

"Yann Danis is a goaltender with five years’ experience on the professional level," said Devils’ Lou Lamoriello. "He will give us depth at that position as we head into training camp."

Lou Lamoriello overflowing with praise for ex-Islander Danis. The Devils don't say what terms were, so it's not yet clear if he's a two-way deal (likely) or a cheap benchwarmer for Brodeur. Danis was excellent at times last season but finished poorly. Be fun to see if he can handle sporadic playing time.

As expected, qualifying offers on two-way contracts went out to forwards Blake Comeau, Nate Thompson, Trevor Smith and also to Jeremy Collition, who is said to be headed to Europe. Defenseman Jack Hillen and goaltender Nathan Lawson also received qualifying offers.

Just taking care of odds and ends here. That information is from Greg Logan, who also has quotes from Kyle Okposo on the USA Olympic invite.
