Just told us he has signed a one year deal with Avangard Omsk of the KHL. That's the same team Jaromir Jagr plays on. Brendan is playing 100 holes of golf this Monday at Eagle Creek fo the Make a Wish Foundation. Here's how you can sponsor him.

Here is the link to the 7 minute video that was used to unveil the "New Lansdowne Park". You have to see video to get the whole idea. The still photos don't do it justice. The stadium looks awesome!

Sens Assistant GM Tim Murray joined us on the show today:

-The Club has told the Soo that Robin Lehner will turn pro to join Brodeur in Bingo

-Still waiting to hear back from Roman Wick on the 1 year entry level offer that has been offered to the Swiss star

-Expects to get something done with overage juniors Corey Cowick and Mike Hoffman to play in Bingo

-Believes that Wiercioch is the closest to cracking the line-up between he, Gryba and Cowen

-Doesn't expect to sign Andre Petterson or Jakob Silfverberg this off season

-Not optimistic on re-signing Volchenkov but could get something done with one of if not both Matt Cullen and Andy Sutton

-Have spoken to Peter Regin's agent once already. Doesn't sound too concerned about getting something done with any of the RFA's

Just a follow up to my cap situation post. When I recently asked Bryan Murray about the tight situation the GM responded with

"We are going to have to do one or two moves on the trade market....There are some people outside the organization we will look at that we hope to make some kind of deal to get them to Ottawa.....We've got a couple of extra forwards and a defenseman or two that might get us soemthing a little different."

When asked about when he'd like to know where he stands with Volchenkov, Murray said he'd like to know by the middle of June, a week before the draft.

Meanwhile, while being interviewed on Toronto radio today Murray was more firm in where he stood with Jason Spezza, saying barring something drastic, number 19 will be back as the team's number one centre in the fall.
