Free Agent Frenzy Thread

Recommended Posts

Figured I would start a "catch all" thread for all the signings today. That way there aren't a hundred separate threads for every signing.

 

Let's kick it off with a few that seem very likely to happen today:

- Corey Perry to Dallas on a 1x$1.5m

- Pavelski to Dallas on a 3 year deal (unconfirmed money)

- Donskoi to Avs

- Myers to Vancouver on deal reportedly close to 5x$6m

- Duchene to Nashville on something that looks close to $8m per season

- Richard Panik to Washington on 3 or 4 year deal worth $2.5m per

- I feel like I saw Brett Connolly to Vancouver, but I am too lazy to look that up again (I know he is confirmed somewhere)

 

Couple of strong rumors, but unconfirmed:

- Panarin AND Varlamov to NYI

- Still looks like Bob to Florida

- Lehner and Lee will need new homes

- Carolina looking into Mrazek

- Read that CBJ is totally fine with a 1a/1b tandem in goal and don't intend to sign a goalie

 

I know there are more. Bob Mckenzie was going wild last night with "rumors" that we all know are more than simply rumors because he is rarely wrong. 

 

Anything I missed? Lets discuss it all here!!

 

 

 

 

Also...be careful for the fakes out there. Lots of Boob McKenzle's out there trying to make us all feel better about our teams...

I believe Pavelski was $7M per

 

Hurricanes are probably looking to go with Mrazek or Lehner.

 

Panarin is down to three teams...Florida, Islanders, and Rangers. I believe I read if it is Florida it will come in around $11M if it is either NY team it will be around $12.5M

Dreger is reporting that there's a strong sense around the league that a few RFA offer sheets will be made today, including Marner, Aho and Connor, this should be a very interesting day !

Yeah I saw that too, Aho has same agent as Price and Gallagher and apparently Bergevin gets along very well with him.

seems like an offersheet to carolina is a blank shot ,  they arnt 1 of the cap hell team, and the owner just said yes to basicly buying a 1st rounder with money (marleau)

Exactly, the Hurricanes have already said they will match any offer sheet presented to Aho. From what I have read is that they are close in salary (around $9M-$9.5M per) the sticking point is the term. Hurricanes wanted 8 years and Aho only wanted 5 years. I also read that basically any team that has called Aho's agent is that he immediately told them that Aho likes Carolina and doesn't want to leave.

If they really want to have any chance with an offer sheet it needs to be for Marner or Point. Supposedly Marner and Leafs were discussing a contract extension yesterday...either a 3 year or 5 year.
