GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The New York Rangers re-signed restricted free agent defenseman Michael Del Zotto on Sunday, according to the team's twitter account.

It's a two-year deal worth $2.55 million per season, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.
thank god he didn't pull the old Drew Doughty

I'm not sure if these videos have been posted here before but both of these were pretty neat

I don't think it lets you embed more than 2 videos, that last one is "2011-2012 NHL Recap With NHL Social"

Jamie Been received a pretty decent deal eariler giving him over 5mill a season so I'm sure he will be signed soon.

LOL cold deal at best

The home opener will begin with a season ticket holder having the honour of dropping the ceremonial faceoff.

During the game, one fan will have the chance to “Shoot to Win” for $100,000, and after the game 24 fans will be chosen at random for their “Jerseys off our Backs” promotion. The fans will meet the players at the end of the game and will be given a game-worn jersey from that night.

There will be other prize giveaways throughout opening weekend including the chance to win a road trip with the Canucks on the team charter.

In addition, the Canucks will be offering discounts on food and merchandise. During their first three-game homestand, all merchandise at the Canucks Team Store will be 50 per cent off and all concession hot dogs, popcorn, nachos and soft drinks will be just $1.00.

Tickets for January games go on sale on Tuesday at 2 p.m.

50% off during game time only, or during the whole period of the first 3 games?

So Cam Barker. I hope this is a reclaimation project that works.

But seeing as though he was not good enough to play on a depleted Oilers joke of a defense, I'll continue to hold my reservations.

If anything Barker is just a depth pickup... LeBrun quoted it best.

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun

To wit: the Oilers paid Barker $2.5M to be a top 4 defenceman. Van will pay him $700K to be a 7-8 defenceman. Ok. I'm moving on now

Barker has fallen so much from his Chicago days. I wonder what happened to him? I remember when the hawks screwed up the qualifying offers for a few of their players and I was hoping that they would get screwed and we would get Barker.

Somebody wrote he was a cheaper more talented but crappier version of Aaron Rome. I'm not overly excited, especially if AV gives him as long a leash as Rome.

For what we're paying him, it's a good pickup. He's definitely a depth guy and knowing our luck with injuries, he'll come in handy down the line.
