Bulletin Board: Montreal Signs Chris Campoli

Chris Campoli proved to be too expensive for the Rangers

Chris Campoli proved to be too expensive for the Rangers

We’ll be trying a new Monday-Friday feature on BB this season to keep you abreast of the latest developments around the National Hockey League.

Here’s a look at what’s making headlines today:

- The Montreal Canadiens signed Chris Campoli to a one-year, $1.75 million deal.  Campoli was thought to be an option for the Rangers, who have been searching for a veteran defenseman, but though the Rangers had discussions regarding Campoli this weekend they chose not to sign him.  Perhaps Campoli was too expensive, or perhaps the Rangers were encouraged by the latest reports regarding Marc Staal, who may join the team in Europe on Thursday or Friday.  The Blueshirts have maintained contact with Paul Mara’s agent, Matt Keator, and depending on how Staal and Mike Sauer progress, they may pursue Mara more intensely.  Montreal’s signing of Campoli may suggest that Andrei Markov is once again having health issues.

- Elliotte Friedman’s always terrific column, “30 Thoughts”

- The New Jersey Devils will retire Scott Niedermayer's No. 27 on December 16th.

- Florida Panthers goalie Scott Clemmensen underwent knee surgery and will be out for about a month.  So the Panthers won’t have much of a safety net for Jose Theodore to start the season…

- The Buffalo Sabres sent Ales Kotalik and Shaone Morrisonn to the AHL and are now under the salary cap.

- Sidney Crosby is getting closer and closer to participating in a contact practice.

- Calgary sent top prospects Sven Baertschi and Max Reinhart back to the WHL.

- Brendan Shanahan’s suspension spree continues.  James Wisniewski got eight regular season games for this hit and Brad Staubitz got three for this one.  Both were also suspended for the remainder of the preseason.

- Carolina Hurricane Zac Dalpe is becoming a popular fantasy hockey sleeper and for good reason; he might end up playing on a line with Eric Staal.

- The Minnesota Wild signed Aaron Boogaard, Derek’s brother, to a two-way contract.

- Former Ranger Dane Byers was placed on waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets today, he's likely bound for Springfield of the AHL.
