Jeff Friesen traded to Capitals as Devils get under the Cap

WASHINGTON (AP) - Left wing Jeff Friesen was traded to the Washington
Capitals by the New Jersey Devils on Monday for a conditional 2006
draft pick.

The deal gives the Capitals a proven forward and allows the Devils to
trim salary so they can get under the NHL's new $39 million US cap.
Friesen is set to make $2.28 million this season.

''Jeff brings speed, Stanley Cup-winning experience and leadership to
our locker room,'' Capitals general manager George McPhee said. ''We
look forward to having him on our hockey club.''

New Jersey went an allowed amount over the salary cap when they signed
forward Alexander Mogilny last month but faced an Oct. 1 deadline to
get under the threshold.

The six-foot-one, 205-pound Friesen has 208 goals and 285 assists in
10 seasons for San Jose, Anaheim and New Jersey.
His best season was 1997-98 with the Sharks, when he scored 31 goals
and had 63 points. He has five 20-goal seasons.

In the 2003-04 season, Friesen had 17 goals and 20 assists in 81 games
for the Devils. A year earlier, he helped New Jersey win the Stanley
Cup, recording 10 goals and four assists in 24 post-season games.
Friesen scored the winning goals in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference
finals and Stanley Cup finals.

''It was a combination of things,'' Devils general manager Lou
Lamoriello said of the trade. ''His salary was certainly at a level
that was, quite frankly, too high. And we felt comfortable that we had
a good group of young players.

''We certainly appreciate what Jeff gave us. He was fantastic for his
whole tenure here.''

A first-round pick in 1994, Friesen made the NHL's all-rookie team
after making his debut with the Sharks.

I agree,

I love Hockey. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.

They just released IPO'S for Hockey this week, so there are alot of good deals there.

Keep up the good work on your blog!

setting goals said...

After a good read on blogs like this I like to leave little tips on goal setting. You know, the things you used to dream of when you were young, or even now.

A lot of research has shown that only those who set goals are likely to achieve their dreams.

When is the last time you really sat down and wrote a few short term and long term goals down?

What? It's been that long!

A new year is coming. You could do the same things you did this year and achieve the same results you did with your life dreams last year, or you could visit reaching goals and read all the FREE information on setting goals and getting what you want out of life

OR

you could just piddle on through life hoping for the best, like most people do.

Which will it be?

You really can have a lot more of everything than you do now. All you gotta do is know what you want and have a plan.

Have a GREAT New Year!

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
