Tallon setting up for another huge free agency?
 
Dale Tallon is a genius. Even after the shopping spree this past summer, the Panthers are slated to have over $24 million dollars in cap space with Samuelsson, Sturm, Weaver, Garrison, and Clemmensen slated to beome UFAs while Versteeg, Kulikov, and Ellerby will become RFAs. From that group, Versteeg, Kulikov, and Garrison are locks to be back. I'm assuming they could all be resigned for less than $10 million total. Add Huberdeau and Howden's cap hits (worth about $4.5 mil combined) and we're looking at about $10 million in cap space (and possibly more). Who does Tallon go after?

Some big names available:

Zach Parise
Alexander Semin
Ales Hemsky
Ryan Suter
Shane Doan
Mikhail Grabovski
Chris Kunitz

I don't think they'll go after anyone big, but i'd cream my pants if they get Parise.

Bingo! This isn't the old cheap Florida Panthers, this team is going to spend. If Tallon can land a Parise, or a Semin, or a Hemsky, he's going to do it.

If there is 10million free, as the OP stated, then I can guarantee we won't have the money under our our internal cap to sign Parise for the 7+ million he will command.

I'm sure we'll have another great free agency, just not in terms of elite-talent. I expect more solid depth signings for reasonable contracts.

Tallon still will have a lot of money to spend, even if there was an internal cap. There probably wont be Parise money, but Tallon will have money to upgrade a spot or two.

He will have more than $10 million. Next summer, we will be at least $24 million under the cap, which doesnt count a probable rise in the cap. With an internal cap, only having to re-sign Kuli, Steeg, and Garrison, and with most positions set (with Huberdeau), Tallon can go out and get a top four Dman or top six forward. Its probably not realistic to get a Parise, Semin, or Suter, but there will be a chance to upgrade the talent nonetheless.

This is too much for me to even wrap my brain around.

God, please make it so!

Parise, a full year of Markstrom, and the addition of Huberdeau makes us dark horse cup contenders IMO.

Agreed! Would be awesome if we got him. Other teams fans would look our way and say how? Tallon baby, Dale Tallon!

KittysGotClaws 11-03-2011 11:40 PM

Ryan Suter is one of my favorite players in the game, and is an absolute underrated beast. Pretty sure Santos helped draft him, so watch out if he makes it to free agency.

Parise is another one of my favorites, and would be such a perfect addition. Have to think the Devils will keep him, but if not...

CHGoalie27 11-03-2011 11:48 PM

Holy crap, do you think Parise will want to leave the NY/NJ area to come to Florida?

WHY THE HELL NOT?!?

Parise Huberdeau Versteeg Campbell Garrison on the PP?

No slappy semin please.

Because we spent to the floor this season? The Panthers are still cheap, but Tallon seems to be better at managing money than the previous GMs.

Parise is the only one I see as a Tallon guy, and I'm sure he'll at least try to sign him, but I wouldn't get too excited yet.

I believe Parise can be sold on a nice 3-5 year deal. You sell him on the fact he can finish his career in a big market. Those years he would be here should be playoff years. Plus, his prime years spent in FLA. Win-win for all parties involved.

the Pens gave Kunitz a 2 year contract extension back in early October. Sorry, I guess you'll just have to fantasize about someone else :sarcasm:;)

Semin has a house in Florida..

ShootIt 11-04-2011 06:15 AM

Hemsky: Very good player when healthy. With our luck, he'll be injured as soon as he signs a contract with us.

Semin: Talent is there, but, is the passion there? Not saying that because of the Russian factor, but from what Caps fans say about his effort night in and out.
Isn't bad defensively, and has a wicked wrister; just don't want to give him a huge contract and then he doesn't produce.

Would love to get Parise, don't care if Tallon goes 7.5-8m a year for him. Would make us playoff players for as long as he is here.

Panteras 11-04-2011 07:12 AM

I don't feel comfortable giving Semin a big contract

No. Huberdeau will not be our 1st line center.

Im renewing my season tickets the minute they sign Parise.

And he's russian and probably loves the south beach club scene lol....I'll take 'em any way we can get 'em :laugh:

panthersfan751 11-04-2011 10:49 AM

Getting Parise would really send a signal to the rest of the NHL. With him and Huberdeau, we'd finally have a 1st line that could match up against the playoff contenders.
