Okay, how's this for crazy news on free agency day?
It's not so much that Dan Ellis has signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning. It's not so much that it's a two-year, $3 million deal worth $1.5 million a season, either. No, it's that a guy like Derek Boogaard gets signed by the New York Rangers minutes later for even more cash than that.
Yep, Boogaard gets a ridiculous $1.65 million a season for the next four years in New York, according to Bob McKenzie.
