Canadian Press/several articles: Report on a series of buyouts/waivers and resignings on Friday.
Islander centric beyond Bates a quiet day for the club unless you want to include Eric Nystrom resigning with Calgary and a Todd Bertuzzi buyout in Anaheim.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
I am working on a special section for UFA for 7/1 so everyone can link to the major sites reporting free agent signings and who is available. At this time blogger is having a few issues with this feature.
Here is Tsn.ca general list of restricted and unrestricted free agents that does not seem to update but just a reference starting point.
I also added in the NHL.com news feed as a crawler to follow the rumors/signings, not perfect and has some repeats but all of them do.
NHL.com: Adam Kimelman has a recap of the Islanders season with a lot of old comments dating back to the regular season but what seems like a few fresh ones from mixed in. Rick DiPietro, Mike Comrie, Ted Nolan are among several players who give their thoughts on what happened with a look ahead.
