Salary dump for sure. Not looking good. After this season some of you will be happy to be done with those, "whiny amerks fans."

yeah but there has to be more to this. i dont see why tallon would just dump the best players from rochester like this. what i think is that those contracts sexton signed were to expensive for rochester, they just wanted us to pay for everything. now management in rochester is realizing that tallon isnt going to pay for it all, so they're asking him to move salary.
i do believe we should assist rochester with a couple of great veterans, but if they want more than we can offer, they can pay for it themselves.

Another slap in the face to Amerk fans. Trade an AHL all star caliber player for a guy who saw the majority of time in the ECHL last season. This all but confirms the affiliation will be over. Florida knows it, Rochester knows it and Florida is just getting salary off the books.

keithLGA 08-03-2010 01:14 PM

Amerks don't want to pay the entire salaries, Panthers don't want to pay anything. Now we're seeing the salaries dumped and the Amerks becoming a last place team again.

FlaPanthers7 08-03-2010 01:16 PM

I guess the Panthers are looking for both teams to tank this year. LOL

AHL bound?

Randall Ritchey 08-03-2010 01:47 PM

I had no idea what was going on with Florida and the Amerks, which is why when I logged on this morning to see this, I was utterly shocked.

I loved Mink in Hershey and didn't get to many chances to watch him with the Amerks.

Fast, I can say, will not wow you in anyway. He was likely to spend another season in Alaska as Peoria's D is pretty well stocked so I am a fan of this deal for sure.

Could I get some more insight though on the Cats/Amerks situation?

Panthers Acquire Defensemen Joe Callahan and T.J. Fast Fast acquired from St. Louis in exchange for F Mink; Callahan signed as free agent Tuesday, 08.03.2010 / 2:19 PM / Transactions Florida Panthers
Defenseman Joe Callahan

SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the team has acquired D T.J. Fast from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for F Graham Mink and signed free agent D Joe Callahan.

Actually I think Fast or Callahan will challenge for a NHL spot :)

If TJ Fast is playing with the Panthers next season, have fun finishing last. Fast isn't even an AHL player more or less an NHL one.

Awesome! That's what we're all hoping for. :laugh:

sabrefan27 08-03-2010 02:33 PM

Joe Callahan is mediocre at best as well. Several better AHL defenseman available. Oh well, at least this confirms what we already knew. Lame duck season here.

Panthers Sign Blueliner Mike Weaver to 2-year contract
 
andystrickland

D-man Mike Weaver signs two years with Florida Panthers at $900,000 per season. Great deal for a great person less than 10 seconds ago via web

* Reply


He's small, 5-9 182, so I don't know where he is going to fit in but this is a Florida signing, not a depth signing to be called up from Rochester as he played 77 games with St.Louis last season. 339 NHL games total with 4 teams.

Gudbranson44 08-03-2010 02:52 PM

added weaver signing to op.

2 years 900k per season

Shouldn't be lumped in with the other two as Weaver has established himself as a NHL player.

Mogo 08-03-2010 02:56 PM

Yikes...

Mogo 08-03-2010 02:58 PM

I hear he's a good PKer

edit: Holy crap he was 2nd in the league in PK time per game @ 4min per game

the "discussion" or whatever there will be after these moves will still end up in the same thread so I just thought I would make it easier for everyone.. if u want it changed ask a mod, I have to get to work now.
