stevie is kicking ass so far for his first FA. Kubina and Hedman will make a great powerplay tandem.

Man Stevie must have been walking into Tampa WIDE EYED and a smile on his face. Being in Detroit for so long, hes seen Holland have to deal with very little cap space. Going to Tampa and using their available cap space to make a big splash in free agency makes Stevie look like a kid in a candy store. Good for him! Hope Tampa will be a contender this year, atleast making the playoffs. Hes made some significant changes so i see goo things! Go Stevie And Go Bolts!

I would have to imagine that they are on that bubble now.

Though I could see his cap already done, because that four year deal combined with four years left on Malone makes 10 million tied up in Martin and Ryan alone. Stamkos is due a raise next year, and even though they clear a million of cap on buyouts and another in 2011, it just seems as if a team that doesn't like to spend alot maybe up against their self imposed cap number. He definately learned how to deal with goaltenders from Holland. His two goalies cost less than Huet does by himself!

Seriously Dan will make that team at least 5 wins better.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

Adam Burish (F) Chicago Blackhawks to Dallas Stars .
Tim Jackman (F) New York Islanders to Calgary Flames
Raitis Ivanans (F) Los Angeles Kings to Calgary Flames
Matt Cullen (F) Ottawa Senators to Minnesota Wild
Eric Nystrom (F) Calgary Flames to Minnesota Wild.

Not sure if these have been put on before.

Arty still available!!!


Nice signing for them at $600k per season. He would've been a nice fit here and Dats would've had someone to speak Russian with.

He's Latvian - not Russian, although the language has similarities, it's not the same...

He's too one dimensional and even for that tag, he was FAR down on my list of wanted players...

Does anyone know for sure the details on John Scott's signing with Chicago? TSN says one year $1M but capgeek shows it as two years $512,500 per year. Any idea for sure which it is? $1M for 1 year seems like way too much for Scott but TSN is usually more reliable.

He's like 32years old sure he's from Latvia but it was still in the USSR for half his life. I'm sure he can speak Russian.

I would have to imagine that capgeek actually has it right, I don't see Chicago signing anything other than league min contracts at this point

It's crazy seeing what some of these teams are paying for some of these defensemen. If Chara hits the market next season MY GOODNESS how much will he command?

I sure wouldn't imagine that they would either but was suprised that TSN had something different. If they signed him for the $1M that is really bizzare. The only rationale I can see at all is that he can play D or LW (and is 6'8" and 258 lbs.) so maybe they thought they could run a little light and have him play where ever is neededm but if they signed him for $1M I would have just kept Burish for $1.15M.

FYI, Latvian's are not too fond of Russians, so even if they could communicate, it is not necessary they would be best friends.
