Panthers GM Dale Tallon says he has acquired the negotiating rights to potential UFA Tomas Kopecky. Tallon thinks he can sign him before 7/1

Tallon really loves them Blackhawks eh? :ph34r:

Does this mean Hossa will be a Panther soon? Ace and Gary must stay together! What's everyone looking at? :ph34r:

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

The Jets and Panthers have more Hawks than Chicago does.

:scared:
He just may do that.
He's going to need a goaltender as Vokoun won't be back.
Also, he could use Huet's salary to get to the floor.


edit: spelling.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Exactly.I had a good feeling about Tallon's gonna trade for Campbell to get closer to the floor and wouldn't be surprised if he helps his former team once again :ranting:

I guess you can look at it that way, but Tallon was the guy who signed Campbell in the first place... so he knows what he's getting and it's a pretty significant move for a team that hopes to move in a different direction.

Even if they do pick up Huet, they're still not paying him as much as they were paying Vokoun. Although, Vokoun is a superior goaltender for the money.

all the Hawks traded were the rights to sign him since Kopecky is a UFA and they weren't going to bring him back next year. He was not "dumped".

Please tell me there will be a big press conference in Miami for this signing.

Seriously, it's as if the Hawks hired Tallon to be hired by the Panthers (as if they had any credibility as a franchise to begin with) so they could unload all of their crap contracts and overrated players.

f*** you, Tallon.

So are the Panthers Cup contenders now with this move?

I personally think they're still one sniper away from being a big favorite in the East, now that they acquired one of the best power forwards in the game.

f*** you, Tallon.

Kopecky's set to be a UFA on July 1st. They just traded for him to negotiate early.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.
