Panthers Free Agency 2012!

Today is a big day, figured I would make a thread for everything the Panthers do throughout the day as well as discussion.



Happy Canada Day everyone!

__________________________________________________ ___________________________

Zach Parise


The biggest UFA this year, will he sign with the Devils or will he go to Free Agency?

Quote:
Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

NJD GM Lou Lamoriello was in TOR last night to meet with Zach Parise, who will decide within the hour if he is going to UFA at noon ET.
Will keep update of his status.

__________________________________________________ ___________________________

Ryan Suter


Ryan Suter, another big UFA that will most likely see some action today. Where does he go? It's been quiet with no big news on what is going to happen with him.

Quote:
The Score ‏@theScore

Ryan Suter's agent says the Nashville Predators defenseman will be hitting the NHL's free agent market
__________________________________________________ ___________________________

Alexander Semin



Alexander Semin has had problems with Washington which is why he is set to make his way to UFA. Where does he sign?

Quote:
Chuck Gormley ‏@ChuckGormleyCSN

Alexander Semin's agent says he's had no talks with Capitals. Plans on going to free agency .
__________________________________________________ ___________________________

Roberto Luongo


Not a free agent, but a big named talked about during the past few weeks. Does Gillis budge and let Tallon win the war, do we see Luo in a Panthers jersey next year? Today would seem like the day for something big to happen.

Quote:
George Richards ‏@GeorgeRichards

Word on street is #FlaPanthers are internally getting ready for the return of Roberto Luongo





Updating this thread, I will open it so you guys can start talking.

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!!

Today is going to be a long day for us Panther fans. By the end of the day we should start to get an idea as to what our team will look like this season. It could be really stressful because DT may be held back by ownership pushing a Luongo deal. Let's hope this is not the case. Tallon said our offense needs major improvement this off-season, now let's see him back those words up.

No surprise but J. Gustavsson going to market. Didn't feel Winnipeg was a fit for him

Dont get too excited everyone, because its only going to lead to dissapointment. I dont expect to see any big UFA signings by the Panthers, so we wont see any Suters, Parises, Semins, etc. IMO. I think the biggest UFA signing we will see is by the Heat, who will get Ray Allen. Its unfortunate that the opportunity is there for the Panthers to really become a powerhouse in this league, but they wont spend the necessary funds to do it. Time could prove me wrong, but if I wouldt bet against it.

I could see Tallon going after Carle if Garrison signs with another team.

I don't see it. LeBrun said Carle is going to ask +5, why would we sign him if we let G52 go for the same money?

Yeah its safe to say we won't be big players for Parise or Suter. Semin is a possibility but still wouldnt count on it. However, I do think that signing either Jokinen, Whitney or Parenteau is very realistic and could be a big help.

Re Garry: Yes, and I'm still hoping we will sign him.

At that $$, I don't. Too many kids coming up to have another long-term commitment on the blueline.

No better way to follow free agency than on my new iPad. This thing is amazing.

Why didn't we trade Garrison's rights?
