The NHL is expected to accept the Devils' latest offer or it's off to the KHL for Ilya.
According to the Ottawa Citizen, the contract lasts 15 years and is worth $100M, which comes out to $6.66M a year. A coincidence? I think not.
According to Kariya's agent, he will NOT be playing next season due to PCS, post-concussion syndrome. Sorry, Ducks fans. Selanne and Kariya won't be reunited—just yet.
The Oilers are close to signing RFA forward Sam Gagner. However, a source is saying that he wants a one-year deal as opposed to the multi-year deal the Oilers' management are currently offering.

I would think that it would be the other way around, but maybe Gagner wants out of Edmonton soon?
