3 Down?

Rumours are swirling that Ilya Kovalchuk is very close to signing a monster extension in the area of 9 years with his Atlanta Thrashers. If this is true, it is going to make for a pretty boring free agency day. Potential UFAs Rick Nash and Marc Savard have already been re-signed to long term deals with their respective clubs. If the Kovalchuk rumours are true, the most sought after free agent forward will likely be Patrick Marleau. I can’t see the Sharks re-signing him before the season is over because of his lack of success in the playoffs.

There are some interesting RFAs, although the three Hawks, Kane, Toews and Keith, are rumoured to be signed any day now. Other than that; Washington is going to have to figure out how to keep Backstrom and Semin. Looks to be a pretty boring ‘most exciting day in hockey’.
