Live Free Agency 2.0

-- 7: 04--


Two biggest deals of the day.

Soup to Chicago for 7.1 million

Rolston to the Devils.

Rosival is getting paid 5 million a year from the Rangers.... wow


-- 5:30 --


Snore.
Lalime signed with Buffalo.

-- 5:15 --

Here is the link to TSN's UFA Tracker from 2007. [ HERE ]

Everyone takes a break for dinner then the action picks up into the evening.
The Sykora and Sydor signings happened at 1:00 am on July 2 last year.

-- 4:45 --





Eklund throws an E4 at talks between Hossa and Edmonton

-- 4:30 --



Tampa has a 1-year, $32 million deal on the table for Mario Lemieux.

-- 4:15 --



TIOPS SAYING PENGUINS OFFERED NASLUND 2 YEARS, $7.5 MILL.


Jesus. Tampa signs Goalie Olaf Kolzig to a one-year deal.
Immediately, the Lightning become a non-threat to the Pens with that signing.

-- 4:05 --



Darcy Tucker is an Avalanche. Stupid non-plural team name.
2 years. $4.5 million

-- 4:00 --



Eric Godard is a Pen. Goon City. BGL will probably go to Tampa.
wwjjd


They signed Adam Hall to a 3-year deal worth $1.8 million.
The Pens could have kept him around for 600K? Why didn't that happen?

We took a liking to Hall, but the prevailing thought in C-blog is whatev. So whatev.


Chicago grabs goalie Cristobal Huet. 5.625 a year over 4 years.
HUGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEE SIGNING FOR CHICAGO.


Cory Stillman is a Panther.

shoulda kept hall..

xuscbausp said...

thank god for a new thread. 960 comments is too many to read through haha. freshbeginningblog

Raybin said...

Genius move by Chicago. The pieces are really starting to fall into place for them.

'09-'10 Hawks = '07-'08 Pens

AmericanHero269 said...

There's other Hall's out there.

JYo said...

Good point about BGL. Tampa prolly has an offer in already anyway.

Colin said...

Chicago has $12.375 committed to goalies next year. That's crazy.

xuscbausp said...

anybody else just hoping the inactivity of the day by sHERO indicates something BIG is on the horizon?

rolston
double j
chuck norris

brndlynn said...

@ eileenover and fh: i think the two of you just have a different definition of what a goon is and in your definition you're probably both right.

Original Nathan said...

Colorado signs Angry Smurf Darcy Tucker, from TSN.

fossill34 said...

Nice move by Shero signing Godard, like it or not losing Roberts,Malone,Hall, and Laraque...possibly also Ruutu this team will be needing some toughness and Godard has tons of that. He won't try to be a 1st line winger like Laraque envisions himself, and he plays with more of an edge.

penstone410 said...

are comments moving here? i kinda wanted to see us hit 1000..

Gregory said...

Why use 600K to keep Adam Hall (we have plenty like him in wbs) use that money towards Hossa or JJ or keeping other FA's.

Dr. Turkleton said...

p.o.

unless BOS bought those guys out last night...that shipped sailed at midnight to buyout players.

dlonlo said...

Colorado Signs DARCY TUCKER to a 2 year deal worth $4.5-million!!!

P.O. said...

RE BGL being a "good guy"

Alec Baldwin said it best in Glengarry Glen Ross (another reason he should be seriously considered by tPB)

"Nice guy? I don't give a shit. Good father? Fuck you! Go home and play with your kids."

Aron said...

@colin...they are also still paying entry level contracts for their top 2 players (Toews & Kane) so they can afford it for 1 year. Also...they had to meet the minimum payroll floor

Original Nathan said...

Chicago has $12.375 committed to goalies next year. That's crazy.

But that's only for next year. Khabibulin comes off the books after that, and they've got an upgrade in place with no questions hovering around the team as to whom they'd get.

Gregory said...

Why pay 600K to keep Hall when we have plenty like him in WBS that are already under contract, he was goo, but not great. Use the money towards Hossa or JJ or other FA's.

Jonny Veesdoorwall said...

Eileen, you've found the man behind the curtain! Hit me on facebook if you need explanation on that

penstone410 said...

@xusc
im with you
i said before-
sHERO is going "wait for it.. wait for it.." while playing some solid solitaire

Lady Jaye said...

I cannot believe how many comments are in the last thread... wow

I will miss Hall as well. He was a hard worker but there are other guys who will be a Hall-esque player.

Crock said...

why does chicago constantly need a 1a/1b goalie situation?

daismog said...

Since I suck at life and missed the new post, I'll copy my comment here.

BGL is a much better skilled hockey player than most other goons out there, but that doesn't make him any less a goon, nor a great hockey player.

If he's gone, as it certainly seems will be the case, he will be missed in the same way Colby Armstrong is missed.

Joose said...

Raybin said...

I have three Pens t-shirts:

Conklin
Laraque
Gill

If they put the USS Hal Gill into drydock, I will join the LGP crowd on the bridge. Though just for selfish reasons, not because I think the team is doomed.

Colin said...

It just seems werid to have two starters on your squad.

Huet has to play second fiddle all year to start next year? Or do you have a $6.75M goalie ride the pine?

No big deal, just suprising.

Dr. Turkleton said...

penstone...

if that old cblog hasn't reached 1k by 600p...

• FH will be back on it
• add comments to get it to the required 1k
• *print screen* it
• add it to the Milano shrine.

eileenover said...

Gill's not going anywhere raybin.

xuscbausp said...

haha penstone. regular or spider?

Aron said...

@colin...

did you want them to wait another year to get a quality goalie just because they already have one at a terrible contract? This will make a ton more sense next year.

debrisslide said...

Like I said last post, Hall was becoming a favorite of mine. He takes chances and shoots the puck, which payed off for him. We need a guy like that. I don't keep track of WBS so I don't know who we can call up, but whatever. I'm waiting to see what happens next.

Make a move, sHero.

Pensblog Staff said...

we personally had an affinity for Hall. But we digress.

Colin said...

I am just a fan of a team with a clear starter and a clear backup.

Raybin said...

@eileen

I know, I was just sayin'

Brett said...

yeah, i'd say anything under a million is a bargain for Hall. And why do we need that Godard goon? i don't like this at all.

And I'm going nuts not knowing about Orpik...

Aron said...

also...Huet is definitely the starter over Khabibulin.

JYo said...

Keeping 'bulin also gives Chicago a nice chip at the trade deadline if some team is in search of a goalie for a Cup run. Either they pick up a draft pick or young player, or they just let his contract expire and have the cap space the next year.

KJ said...

like alec baldwin knows what a good father is

as for who we get, i guess it'll be like any other year. some apprehension then we like them cause they bring something to the team

xuscbausp said...

i dont dislike hall but i can live without him.
sHERO is gonna make us wait. i can feel it. ulcerblog

coffeytalk said...

man alive, i can't believe the chatter on here. i leave a few hours ago and sweet mother of thor! i can't catch up!

Jonny Veesdoorwall said...

Penguins may offer 6 yrs/ 22 mil, or 5 yrs/ 18 mil to Orpik, per TIOPS

Aron said...

@jyo...it might be a stretch to call 'bulin a chip. he's really just a mistake...if he doesn't like the backup goalie position...he can retire.

win-win-win.

Colin said...

@ aron -

I see your point I suppose, just a good deal of money for two keeps.

xuscbausp said...

i missed out on Facebookblog so just in case anybody wants...

Dan said...

that was a dirty dirty trick...........

eileenover said...

Free Candy is not worth 5 mil. I love the guy, but that's not right.

penstone410 said...

@xusc
classic.. definitely

@dr turk
FH will just write love letters to Milano or quote lines from Charmed to make it to 1k..

debrisslide said...

Godard is probably cheaper than BGL, so if we're losing BGL I can see this move being solid.

But that doesn't mean I don't have a creeping nervousness about this whole business.

dlonlo said...

Sources have confirmed the Penguins offer to Markus Naslund is 2yrs - 7.5 million.

TheSteelPen66 said...

Is Tampa Bay on crack??? 1.6 for Hall??? STOOPID...Anybody know anything about this Godard Guy?

JYo said...

it might be a stretch to call 'bulin a chip

It might be, but you never know what will happen. Some team plays over their head and has a weak goalie or some starter gets hurt, etc. I would not be the least bit surprised to see him traded at the deadline.

Jonny Veesdoorwall said...

Coffey, you missed so much! There were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident

Aron said...

@ colin

yeah no doubt...luckily for them, this year they can afford that luxury(stupidity)

assoh said...

im really afraid my friend is gonna kill himself if we lose BGL.

LargeTurkey said...

we have 7 dmen we don't need orpik. Eaton was a steal by the way.

Actually we do need Orpik. Joke.

Yeah... about that, you may want to lay low for awhile cause you're probably wanted for murder.

Colin said...

Khabibulin's stats last year...

23-20-6 2.63 .909

Not too bad. He is much better than a guy like Raycroft though, IMO.

@eileen
are you calling me a joke or are you saying that it is a joke that we need Orpik. Maybe we need him to play left wing.

eileenover said...

Tampa Bay signs UFA goaltender Olaf Kolzig to a 1 year deal worth $1.5-million (plus bonuses).

JYo said...

Not too bad.

Considering the team in front of him, I'd say thats pretty good.

teamkory said...

Goddard is not BGL. if we lose BGL he must be replaced by someone with a negro heritage

dlonlo said...

Tampa Bay signs UFA goaltender Olaf Kolzig to a 1 year deal worth $1.5-million (plus bonuses).

debrisslide said...

I know that it's mostly the playoff run that is making people crazy over Orpik. . .but every time I watch THE SHIFT I can't imagine him playing for anybody else. I would be TERRIFIED.

5mil = overpaying him, though. TIOPS can suck my cock. I'll believe it when it's reported on something that isn't Blogger.

assoh said...

@ jonny v

yeah i saw that.

DangerPenguin said...

Why does Rossi have to ruin everything. i believe the JJ reports

Full House!!!! [Stamos theme]

xuscbausp said...

any bets on when the first porn link gets posted in cblog?

im sayin 427

eileenover said...

I'm calling you a joke. He can move the puck, has great speed, and is the most physical D-man. We need that kind of physical presence on the D.

fossill34 said...

For those wondering about Godard he is more of a stand and throw fighter from a distance fighter, compared with Laraque who loves to get in close clinch throw a few punches and then wrestle to the ground. I'd say with Godard we probably have the best "enforcer" in the East. He should pound out Cote quite a few times and thats all the more I could want.

Jonny Veesdoorwall said...

Bompiana coming to tPB to job Rossi = you have my vote sir

M. Vanderlasser said...

"What's more, the Penguins have worked out a new contract for center Evgeni Malkin. Although Malkin's deal has not been formalized, it will be patterned after Sidney Crosby's contract, running five years and including an annual salary-cap hit of $8.7 million."

Where will the latest Evening Magic news be posted most fastest?

I bet Godard is going to make some awesome videos for the Mellon's jumbotron.

(Sorry, some awesome "films" for the jumbotron.)

Dr. T., thanks for the DBV reference.

Serenity Now!

I thought that was "Bob Pompeani for State Senate"..

Oh and non-plural team names do suck. Unless, of course your team name is actually SUCK, like "Now pitching for the Detroit Suck, #42, Bob Dinkins!"

LargeTurkey said...

So we should waste 5 million on another dman when we already have 7. When we should be worrying about fowards when we need 5 more to fill out the roster. Orpik's speed is average at best. His puck carrying ability is average. He gets big hits. thats it. I'm not saying he stinks. but he is not worth more than 3.5 million given the options we currently have on D.

Dan said...

could we get some action already geez louise

Jonny Veesdoorwall said...

I wonder what the over/under on the amount of kleenex FH has used for his Charmed marathon so far...

eileenover said...

Sam's dog said...

the lunatics are running the asylum..
10mil for Sundin??
9-10 mil for Hossa

best thing Shero can do is let these fools overspend and pick up some good deals after the dust settles.

If Huet is worth 5.6mil what are we gonna have to pay Fluery? ouch

Crazy things going on.

Maybe Shero is a genius to sign Hossa for 12 weeks dust him off put him on a line with the best center in the world and make him look amazing. Pump his value through the roof and create a feeding frenzy where everyone burns through their cap money in one day. Hossa better remember that the coatcheck girl is waiting at the door with his monkey. "Yes, Marian you have to put it back on when you leave"
I'd take JJ and Naslund for that Hossa money, but it probably won't happen.

xuscbausp said...

i have gotten NO work done today hahaha. cmon sHERO.

Stoosh said...

Posted in the other thread, but I'll repost here...

@ Eileen -

I agree with you...as fighters go, Laraque showed some pretty decent hockey sense and decent puck skills. Godard doesn't have quite the same skill set.

However, Laraque made $1.3M last season and was probably going to be looking at having to take a pay cut to stick around. So if bringing in a cheaper alternative like Godard also means the Pens are able to keep someone like Ruutu at the expense of losing Laraque, I can deal with that.

I hate to see BGL go because I liked him, but if Laraque leaving eventually equates to someone like Ruutu sticking around, that would be a good tradeoff. Just my opinion.

Beav said...

are ya serious?

Detriot has Eatons? Like who? Lidstrom? Rafalski? Kronwall (who is similar to Orpik)? Stuart?

I like Eaton Park a lot but to compare him to any of Detriot's top 4 is ridiculous

coffeytalk said...

the penguins text messaging service = total failure.

they JUST gave me the news that we signed eaton.

get on your game, fools.

JYo said...

Detroit has eatons, and they have the cup.

Lindstrom = Eaton???

No matter how much FH plays with himself, JJ will never sign with the PENS again in my opinion. I would not be for it, I would not be against. I would think that most of Pittsburgh would choose the former more so than the latter.

If everyone remembers last year, Paul Kariya was THISCLOSE to being a Penguin. When we woke up the next morning, he signed a three year, $18M deal with the Blues, for a cap hit of $6M per year.

Shero responded by getting Petr Sykora for two years, $5M TOTAL.

For their $6M investment last year, St. Louis got 16 goals, 49 assists and 65 points in 82 games from Kariya.

For $2.5M last year, the Pens got 28 goals, 35 assists and 63 points in 81 games.
