Roberts, Nieuwendyk to Panthers?


Early reports from The Score say that veterans Gary Roberts and Joe Nieuwendyk have left the Maple Leafs and signed two year deals in Florida. I can't say that I'm surprised that they didn't resign in Toronto, but I'm a little surprised at where they are reportedly headed.

Also today, the Edmonton Oilers dealt Brad Isbister to the Bruins for a 4th round draft pick in 2006.

Probably plenty of more action to come in the next several days.

**Update** Sportsnet has confirmed the news. $2.25 million/season for each one.

    As a Sens fan, I'm quite discouraged by the news, but at least Roberts won't be killing us in April again.

    Still, just when the Jacques Martin connection could come in handy, he's no longer our coach. Go figure.

    Well, at least at this point, it leaves the Leafs pretty thin up front. But that's assuming they don't make a big splash of their own (which they will at least attempt).

    Speculation of Lindros, Murray or Allison signing in Toronto has run around, but in the case of Allison and Lindros, there are major question marks. So really, Sens fans should be ok with this ;)
