Sean Hill goes to Florida (rumor) mellanby not

Meanwhile, according to sources, the Panthers will sign Carolina veteran defenseman Sean Hill to a three-year deal Thursday.
Quote:
the Panthers originally offered Mellanby a contract worth $1.5 million with a chance to earn a second year if he hit certain performance criteria.

However, when Mike Ricci signed a deal last week with Phoenix that would pay him $1.5 million next season, the Panthers felt they were offering Mellanby, 38, too much.

The Panthers dropped their contract offer to $1.2 million. A team source said Mellanby declined

Stiffing him for $300k? Eh??

I'm a Sens fan, though, so I can't really laugh at it, cause I know what it's like. But still, Ricci is a 3rd line center, so of course he's not going to make a whole lot. Mellanby is also a 3rd or 4th line guy. $1.5m is a fair deal for him, IMO.

I'd love to have a guy like Mellanby on the Sens if there were room for him.

Unfortunately Mellanby is 38 and on the decline while Ricci is going to turn 33 in Oct and is still serviceable, one thing is for sure I'd rather spend the extra cash for Mellanby then pickup Karpotsev to a 2-year deal. Anyhow, if this Sean Hill rumor is true great move by Keenan!

I'm impressed with how Florida is addressing their needs on defense. First Karpovtsev and Cairns and now Hill. They are probably losing Lilja, but I would take Hill overhim any day. Hopefully those guys can help Bouwmeester too.

I'll give you 2 out of 3.

Hill would be a good signing, but it's pretty much agreed that the Karpovtsev signing wasn't a good one.

When it comes to Cairns, I'll wait till the season starts to pass judgement. We addressed the physical department, and now we've got another guy willing to drop the gloves, but he's a pretty bad skater.

LMAO!!! God I hope Martin allows someone in the system to beat him out of a roster spot but I guess it really wouldn't matter since he'll probably get injured or fake one as soon as he possibly could and end up having to replace his spot anyway.

I was hoping we'd get Hill the cheapshot artist out of the Division at least. My god how I hate him. Guess I can like the 'Canes again now.
