I'm interested to see if Pecker can maintain at least 2/3 of his offensive numbers in Florida, or if 1/2 or more of them were a product of playing with higher talent on the Hawks. Very much a complementary sort of player, so we'll see.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

It's amazing that with all the sports teams that have relocated in the last 10 years, this one remains in the same place.

Agreed... I wish I could find the TV ratings by city, but it was some abysmal number, lower than cable access in Fla, and they basically give their tickets away... how that franchise has stayed there is beyond me...

Somehow, they blow epic (record setting!) amounts of goat and still manage to stay out of the bottom 5 of attendance year after year. Helps to have a lot of ex-Canadians, northeasterns, and midwesterners living in the area, I guess.

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.

A fortuitous thing for the Hawks to be sure, but also something that I think we're liable to see more of as long as the cap continues to rise. Teams trying to be competitive will be able to get out from underneath their blunders by moving their albatross contracts to terrible teams just wanting to make the cap floor.

It infuriates me that several teams seem to not care about winning, but just barely meeting the cap floor so they can leech off everyone else. Infuriates me. Islanders, I'm looking at you, too.

Kopecky's numbers last year would have placed him fourth in goals, second in assists, and second in points on the Panthers. Tallon is likely interested in taking advantage of his size and skills to provide a strong presence up front, given that Florida didn't really have that last year.

They certainly have the cap space for it; although it would affect their chances at replacing Campbell. Gives them a pretty solid top-nine with Sharp/Toews/Kane, Frolik/Richards/Hossa, Bickell/Bolland/Olesz. I figure if they sign Richards, and they're lucky and get him for around $7m, they can get a guy like Greene to take Campbell's spot. If he costs more than that, they have to either go cheap and pray or trade someone they weren't planning on trading.

I doubt they sign Richards. Sharp is a UFA next offseason and he'll be looking for around 4 mil a year.

Oh, that photo of Koko and Hossa and the Cup is so cute!!!

Maybe this was all Hossa's idea so he wouldn't have to live with the knowledge that Koko has more cups than he has.

Seriously, I loved Koko here when he wasn't injured. He got some bad breaks (and tears and pulls and strains) here. I wish him well where ever he ends up.

Yeah, I'm a little pissed that their old GM is taking all these bad contracts off their hands. I was watching NHL Network last night and they were interviewing Tallon and he was saying how great Campbell was and how he'll help the younger defensemen and lure in other free agents. Whatever. Since when did Brian Campbell become Bobby Orr? A defenseman that the Blackhawks couldn't get rid of fast enough will lure in other free agents? He's going to help Florida reach the cap floor and at the same time get Tallon back in the Blackhawks good graces. Is he going to trade for Cristobal Huet next? When Hossa gets too old and starts to be ineffective, will he take on that contract too?
