On Monday, F Nate Thompson signed a one-year, two-way deal worth $500,000. If Thompson plays in Providence in 2008-09, the center will earn $80,000.

WHAT IT MEANS: Thompson, who would be an energy guy in the NHL, would have an annual cap hit between that of Jeremy Reich ($487,500) and Shawn Thornton ($516,667) -- about right for a player with fourth-line duties.
