Oduya's a Goner Now Too

The Tribune has the official confirmation from Johnny Oduya's agent.

He's a good player and was a big part of the Cup championship, but he is also 33 years old. He follows Patrick Sharp, Brandon Saad, Brad Richards, Antoine Vermette, and Kimmo Timonen out the door.

This won't be the same team next year. Let's hope they've retooled in a way that keeps them competitive. I'm not enough of a hockey expert to know whether or not that's true, but after three Stanley Cups, I'm willing to give Stan Bowman the benefit of the doubt.

LATE UPDATE: Oduya has officially signed with Dallas.
