Cats get three signed
 
http://panthers.nhl.com/team/app/?se...ticleid=362520

Belak and Kreps are signed for two years. Good to see some news come out of Pantherland.

OneOfTheHockeyGods* 05-05-2008 11:35 AM

nice signings. Kreps will score 20 goals.

NJ_CATS_FAN 05-05-2008 11:37 AM

Good moves. Kreps is definitely worthy of sticking around and good move in keeping Belak around. Now the next moves I want to see is 1. Bouw is signed long term and 2. Stumpel and Mezei are gone.

Acadmus 05-05-2008 12:12 PM

Beaverson is a 'meh' as I've said before (can't believe I've actually adopted that term:sarcasm: ), but Kreps and Belak signings are awesome.

I'm still holding out hope for Monty to be retained, though...and of course the key signings still aren't done, Bouw and Frolik, and Martin's got less than a month on Frolik and two other prospects who can reenter the draft.

This is great news. I was really hoping we'd re-sign Belak to stay as our enforcer even though i knew there was a great chance it would happen anyway since he said he loves it here and Kreps I feel showed some potential this past season and I felt was really worth keeping and seeing how he develops. +1 for JM today :handclap:

I think in the right spot/s, Kamil can net about 13-15 goals next season. 20 would be a big plus for this team.

Laus723 05-05-2008 12:53 PM

Incredibly excited that we re-signed Belak and Kreps, too. Like Martin said, Wade's a high character guy and helps keep the locker room loose and in high spirits. Kreps was a great faceoff guy and has really earned a spot on the roster. Beaverson sounds like a solid signing for the AHL. Good work Jacques. I'm sure he'll continue to talk with Bouwmeester and Frolik.

BEEEEEEEE-LAK!

Georgia Panther 05-05-2008 01:06 PM

Re-signing Belak means no Montador next season. He takes the combination wing/blueline position Monty filled so well last season. If Monty did sign, Belak would have been lucky to dress for 40 games next season.

Rattrick 05-05-2008 01:23 PM

Great signings. I loved Kreps last year. He came up and EARNED his spot with the team. IMO, he's an ideal 3rd line center for us right now who can kill penalties and win faceoffs.

Keeping Belak was also a great move. First because my girlfriend thinks it's hilarious watching him skate, and second because we needed an enforcer bad.

If we don't resign Frolik, I am going to be really, really pissed.

I love Kreps and Belak so I'm extremely happy with this signing. Beaverson wasn't a bad addition either, he won't be more than a top 6 d-man in the NHL but he will provide some depth which is always helpful.

Laus723 05-05-2008 02:53 PM

From Richards blog, the only one to report any of this so far...big surprise!

One thing I liked about Wade last year was how he noticed how much pressure Olli Jokinen was carrying around at the end of the season and tried to alleviate some of that by joking around with Olli on the ice, kind of messing with him to loosen him up, break up some of the tension. I don't know too many other players who would have not only recognized the pressure Olli was under, but try to do something to lessen it. Don't know if it worked, but at least the dude gave it a shot.

That's incredible that Wade was able to do that. Very happy that a guy like him is still with the team

Beezer 05-05-2008 04:56 PM

If JM doesn't sign Frolik he can go back to the draft????

Yes, unfortunately. Hopefully he can get him signed no problem.

Yup, he sure can.

mikefavata 05-05-2008 07:18 PM

And all the Panthers would get is a very low 2nd round compensation pick, correct?

No, we would get the 10th pick in the 2nd round as compensation. so we would pick 9 and 10 in the 2nd round if he did reenter.

Frolik > 10th selection in the 2nd round.

Cats Gambler 05-05-2008 09:39 PM

:handclap: for this signings...

:cry: if we lose Frolik.

PanthersRule96 05-05-2008 10:05 PM

I quit as a panthers fan if we lose Frolik to reentry. To be fair though we have a lot of time to get it done. A month is an eternity. Heck, 5 hours before the deadline is an eternity. I have faith that Martin will make the right move. Losing Frolik would be a HUGE blow.

Oh, definatelly agree I was just wondering what the Panthers get.

The only thing that worries me is that Frolik is most likely a max rookie contract type of guy, so I'm not sure I understand the holdup. JM should just offer him the max considering it's only something like 825K anyway and be done with it.

I doubt he disagrees with you. He was just pointing out where the compensatory pick would fall to us in the second round.

That's probably not what the holdup is. They are probably just taking a long time because they are negotiating over bonuses. Frolik's camp probably wants bonuses close to or equivalent to a #1 overall pick. I'm sure it'll get done, it just might take a while.
