I don't believe it for a second.

We may not land him; that's a different issue. But I think they're just blowing smoke up MM's prodigious bum.

@chrisefaw Not actively pursuing doesn't mean not interested. Just to spell it out. If his price drops, I'm sure the team will listen.
So we're out on Jagr then. "Price drop" and Jagr don't mix.

Maybe he meant "big" as in "size", as in "Derek Joslin"

Penner? Grabovski? Hainsey?

If Hainsey has a house in Atlanta and want significant playing time, that might make sense.

Or it could be smoke and mirrors like usual. How often has it come out about how the team wasn't close to signing someone only to have a deal with them announced shortly after?

Penner is a "Big" UFA....

Grabovski on the 3rd line would be cool.

There's no way it's not Jagr. Rutherford said the "big free agent" approached him, which Svoboda indicates was/is the case. The Canes might not "actively be pursuing" Jagr in the sense that they're looking to negotiate, but to say there is no fire here is asinine at this point.

I doubt Maniscalco knows the whole story anyway. Why would he? He's just a radio guy.

Sounds like Mike is now trying to walk things back a little without sounding like he's walking things back a little

None of the other guys would likely consider a 1-year deal.

Maniscalco's twitter feed is hilarious. Nothing like a radio host flaming someone in an argument over semantics.

In fairness, both Grabovski and Skinner were being horribly misused in shutdown roles. Grabovski-Skinner wouldn't be bad defensively on a line that faces weaker opposition, though I don't know if they would be a great fit together as they are both puckhogs.

This too. The team may want one, but I doubt Grabovski is coming to JR asking for a 1-year deal to prove himself. MAYBE Morrow, but still doubtful.

He's such a classic dope, just unlistenable.

His most annoying phrase..."I don't want to say..." Just horrible.

Don't forget Morrow did play with Kirky in Dallas for 3 or 4 seasons. It wouldn't surprise me if he talked to the Canes.

That's one I hadn't considered. And wouldn't consider. You want to talk about injury prone (at this point, anyway).

I hope you're not right.

Agreed. Although, if you must, please use "Kirky" not "Kirkie". That just makes it even worse
