Bayda, Brookbank, Conboy signed

Before Carolina took care of their major business on Tuesday, they re-signed three players. Winger Ryan Bayda and defenseman/winger/tough guy Wade Brookbank were both signed to one-way NHL contracts. Also, defenseman Tim "We got us a great big" Conboy was signed to a two-way deal.

Bayda and Brookbank were signed to identical contracts. One year at $475k. Conboy's is a two-year deal that will pay $475k at the NHL level or $100k at Albany.

The Canes now have 11 forwards signed to NHL deals and five defensemen.

Here's how things look:

Ray Whitney / Eric Staal / Justin Williams
Sergei Samsonov / Rod Brind'Amour / Scott Walker
Tuomo Ruutu / Matt Cullen / Patrick Eaves
Wade Brookbank / Chad LaRose* (Trevor Letowski*) / Ryan Bayda

Tim Gleason / Joe Corvo
Nic Wallin / Joni Pitkanen*
Frantisek Kaberle / Anton Babchuk (Dennis Seidenberg*)

Cam Ward
Michael Leighton

Pitkanen hasn't signed anything yet, and LaRose is a free agent.

I don't think the Canes will be making any moves in the market other than to re-sign their own RFAs. Look for Dennis Seidenberg and Trevor Letowski. They may end up elseshere.

More later.
