The Red Wings waived 33 year old defenseman Derian Hatcher today, deciding his $5M/yr contract was too much in the new world of salary caps in the NHL. Is long-time Dallas Stars captain headed back to his home town? The answer to that may be dependent on whether the Stars are able to resign current captain Mike Madano. The Stars say they want him to retire in Dallas and Madano says he wants to be here, but there's no deal yet. Madano's age (35) probably wont help as he's looking for a long term deal to end his career, but Mike's been the heart and soul of this team and still is one of the best puck handlers and skaters in the NHL. Here's hoping that Mike and Derian are skating on the same line again this year.
Sunday, July 31st is the MLB trade deadline. There's been talk between the Rangers and Mets regarding Alfonso Soriano but the word on the street is that the Rangers are asking for too much.
