Report: Kovalchuk re-signs with Devils

Ilya Kovalchuk, seen by many as the cream of the NHL free agency crop, has finally decided that he will re-sign with the Devils, according to the team’s official Twitter page. Kovalchuk had 27 points (10 G, 17 A) in 27 games for New Jersey last season after being traded to the squad in a deadline deal with Atlanta. Between the two clubs, he totaled 85 points. Kovalchuk has scored at least 41 goals in every season he’s played since he entered the league in 2005. Terms of the signing were not immediately disclosed. A press conference to announce the signing is scheduled for Tuesday.

Reports: Ranaudo done on Cape

According to multiple reports, Red Sox draftee Anthony Ranaudo has left the Brewster Whitecaps after a dominant stint in the Cape Cod Baseball League. The news was first reported by thecollegebaseballblog.com, and confirmed by the Cape Cod Times.

 

Ranaudo, whose draft stock dipped this year due to injuries and struggles on the mound at Louisiana State University, turned in a dominant performance for Brewster this summer. Ranaudo was 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 23 2/3 innings, striking out 22, walking seven and allowing just seven hits. That performance...

Source: 'No progress' for Bruins, Wheeler
By: DJ Bean

According to a league source, the Bruins and Blake Wheeler’s camp have made “no progress” thus far on a new contract, though talks are expected to pick up soon. If Wheeler, who filed this month for arbitration, makes it to a hearing and the Bruins choose against paying him what he is awarded, the 23-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent and would be free to sign with any team.

 

The Bruins would officially be over the $59.4 million salary cap by signing Wheeler, who earned $2.8 million last season, but general manager Peter Chiarelli indicated last week that it is the team’s intention to come to deals with both Wheeler and rookie forward Tyler Seguin.

 

Defenseman David Tanabe is the only the case in which Chiarelli and a player saw the arbitration process through, with Tanabe being awarded $1.275 in 2006 and the Bruins letting him walk. Tanabe then signed with the Hurricanes and played...

Law on D&H: Few big trades before July 31

ESPN and Scouts Inc. baseball analyst Keith Law talked to Dale & Holley Monday morning about the upcoming trade deadline and how there are few quality players being put on the trade market by the teams who are most likely not going to make the playoffs this season. Teams like Baltimore, Kansas City and Houston, with a few exceptions, just don't have the parts that buyers are looking for before the July 31 trade deadline. 

 

"Maybe some spare parts, a bench player, but not the sort of thing that's going to get the fans of any contending team excited," Law said. "Unfortunately, some of these selling clubs are looking at the market, saying, 'Wow, there's not a lot on the market that we can get for our player,' and that just puts a further drag on the trade market. So, I'm not a psychic, I can't tell you for sure, but I just don't feel like there's going to be a lot of major trade activity between now and the end of the...
