Drama? Remember that Newport sports is his agency. They love the spotlight.

Feels good not to be completely invested in what's gonna happen the next couple of days. If something happens, cool, and if not it's still good. Cup champs baby!

If there's a guy I'd like to see be a darkhorse signing, its Peter Mueller. LOADS of skill, and dealt with injuries. A perfect DL guy.

Sounds like he's really struggling with leaving.

Not much different than the offer the Kings made to Richards last year. Richards got $18 million in signing bonuses in the first 2 years and $24 million overall. His cap hit is $6.67. Parise will be similar. It was the Kings offer that the Rangers had to match to get him to sign. Calgary offered the most money to Richards.

Wll NJ be able to match that kind of cash offer? With Kovalchuk gettin $11+ and Marty wanting $5 million next season, that could be $30 million in cash for next season. They also have a balloon dept payment due in August.

I wonder if Pittsburgh will make an exception to their no-frontloading policy on contracts? Parise is definitely getting most of his money in the first 3 years of any deal and we know Dean will offer that kind of front-loaded contract and we know AEG has the cash to make it happen.

I still expect Parise and Suter to sleep on any offers from today. Just like Richards did.

Wow, 12mm signing bonus? I wonder if Uncle Phil would even entertain that. And I really wonder about any owner that would.

Bring back Penner. We don't need this kid. SO many positives to bringing back this team intact, with players who REALLY want to be here, and want Cups more than trying to squeak every last cent out of the organization.

Let Parise be someone else's albatross. Worked out well for us with Kovalchuk, didn't it? We have the Cup, NJ has nothing but financial trouble.

Doan isn't signing until July 9th, that is when there will be a better idea of the ownership issue in Phoenix. If it looks like Jamison will be able to buy the Coyotes, Doan will re-sign with Pheonix.

Apparently Doan was supposed to meet with Jamison already.

Yes, but I believe the signatures to get a referendum is due July 9th. If they have enough signatures, it will be up for a vote in November and Jamison will move on and the team will probably move.

Translation: The Habs will offer a contract to Dustin Penner, the writer says he's not sure if he likes it or not.
Good luck with that boys!

I sure hope the Kings don't have to go through what the Devils' fans are going through with Parise right now. The only drama the Kings have had are when they are pursuing other team's UFAs. Imagine if Brown wants to test the market in three years?

Dean (and AEG) has spoiled the Kings by signing his players before July 1st. Doughty was a special case because he was a RFA and wasn't going anywhere but LA.
