It's Sept. 4, and if you're a hockey player and don't have a contract yet, it's time to be concerned. There are some guys who control their own destiny, like Mats Sundin and Mike Vigilante (who I expect an announcement on soon). But there are other guys, like Brad Schell, who would probably like to be in a better situation than they are right now.
Other familiar names still without contracts: Guillaume Desbiens, Craig Kowalski (G), Morgan Cey (G) (Update: Cey signed in CHL on 9/5, Mike Hamilton with ECHL Las Vegas). Ryan Munce (G) comes to mind too, but he's more obscure to readers of this blog.
