NYI: New York Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello has been called stubborn and that could be a proper description because he does not want to pay the market price to gain cap space and add to his team.

PGH: After originally drafting him as general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ron Hextall has signed Boston College defenceman Jack St. Ivany after the Flyers relinquished his rights.
