Let's take a look at some of the teams who landed impact players, and set their fanbase afire:
- Edmonton landed defenseman Kurtis Foster.
- The Tampa Bay Lightning signed goaltender Dan Ellis, while former 'Ning goalie Antero Niittymaki went to San Jose.
- New Jersey signed former Sabres' blueliner Henrik Tallinder, while his former defense partner, Toni Lydman signed with Anaheim.
- The Rangers paid a lot for super-goon, winger Derek Boogaard, after they lost Jody Shelley who will now be punchasizing faces in Philadelphia with the Flyers.
- Colby Armstrong received a 3-year deal with Toronto.
- Calgary went back to the future by signing right wing Alex Tanguay... TSN's Darren Dreger also is reporting that Calgary would also like to do the same with Olli Jokinen. Really?
