In the first bit of legitimate news for the Sens since the Locke signing, Nick Foligno has signed a two-year deal with Ottawa. Figures haven't been released yet, but should become public knowledge soon enough. Personally, I'm hoping for less than a million, but I'll be fine with anything up to $1.2M.
Oh, and also, I wasn't the first blogger to say this, and I won't be the last, but that Kovalchuk contract was just putrid. Good for the NHL on putting their foot down, but it makes you wonder where they were for the Luongo/Hossa/Holmstrom contracts...
EDIT: According to the folks at HFBoards, the deal is for two years at a cap hit of $1.2M.
