Sunday's Daily Dosage - Campoli, Maroon, Wishart...

Slow news day, so enjoy your day of rest...

Hawks GM Stan Bowman says the team will let Chris Campoli walk after his arbitration hearing, so he'll become a UFA in August.  Chicago signed Montador, O'Donnell & Lepisto this Summer and obviously they think Campoli is getting a little greedy.  Never really been a fan of this guy but he had 21 points last season and has topped 30 points in two of the five seasons prior to last.  So if a guy like this is valuable to you then keep your eyes open as he'll likely hook up with a team late in the Summer and could surprise some people. 

The Ducks re-signed noted badass Pat Maroon to a two-way deal.  He was originally drafted by the Flyers but was kicked off their AHL team last season for being a "bad influence" and they eventually dealt him to Anaheim.  This guy has some fantasy potential if he can get his head on straight as he had 26+30=56 & 98 PIMs in 66 AHL games last year.  The Ducks do have some openings available at training camp and Maroon should be in the mix.

Ty Wishart re-signed with the Islanders on a two-way deal... who knows what the Isles have planned for their blueline this season, right now I'd say Wishart could be the 6th/7th guy but they showed with the Ehrhoff trade that they're looking for an upgrade and they still have cash to spend to get to the floor.  So if I was a Wishart owner, I wouldn't be getting too excited.

The Devils re-signed dman Matthew Corrente on a two-way deal... he'll be fighting for a job (literally) on the 3rd pairing in training camp and while I don't think he'll be much of a point producer in the NHL, he brings the nasty on a nightly basis and will be a guy who racks up PIMs & hits, if you're into that sort of thing. 

This signing happened about a week ago but I think we may have missed it/ignored it at the time... the Flames re-signed goalie Leland Irving to a two-way deal.  The former 1st rounder will be back in the AHL for his 4th season and with both Kiprusoff & Henrik Karlsson signed up for the next two years (Kipper for the next three), Irving is only going to see NHL action if there is an injury.
