If the money/term is reasonable, we all owe Nate Thompson a fruit basket. Evidently they're best friends.

Collect ALL the Alaskans! (Except Gomez)

I'll take it.

Scared for what the term/caphit might be though.

This is true. His game does seem to mesh well with how Boucher likes the guys to play. There's no doubt this will make our team better.

The Lightning have signed defenseman Matt Carle to a six-year contract tonight, Steve Yzerman has announced.
Six years, huh? Unlike SY, just waiting on the money. But my oh my did we need a top-4. And probably a top-2, even.

So happy about this, will overpay on the 6 year deal but he'll fit the system perfectly, and makes us better already. Was the top D man I wanted since I knew Suter sadly wouldn't sign with us.

Edit: 5.5 million, too much but we expected that. Happy it's not 6, even though it's close.

5.5 million, about 1 million too much but we really don't have any big contracts left besides purcell so we should be in pretty good shape. Very happy!

Carles agrees to 6 year contract with Tampa Bay. $5.5 aav.
Not too upset about that. Was worried it'd be 6+.

Maybe guys just actually want to play here.

It will get mocked on the main boards but when you have a ton of capspace, a need for a PMD and an owner willing to spend its not bad. Plus more Alaskians.

It's more than he's worth, but that seems to be a running theme around the league this offseason.

MOAR ALASKANS

Pumped about this though. Money is about a million overpayment, but we also don't have to make a trade and give up anybody. So it balances out.

Yeah...mostly Philly fans laughing their butts off because we signed him and they didn't. The guy only produced points and never had a negative +/- in all his years there - including one season where he was +30. I don't think anyone on our D was a positive last year.

Might have overpaid a bit, yes, but it was the best out there after Suter. Welcome back to Tampa Matt.

THANK THE GOOD LORD!! He's outta Philly!!!

5.5 million a year for a human pylon. LOL!!!!!!!
97 turnovers a game, most of which end up in the back of the net.
And he uses those Bridgestone pucks when he shoots. That's why his shots never make it to the net.

Good riddance bum!!!

Sorry to you guys, Tampa Bay. I like your squad. Stammer will make up for Carle's mistakes.

I'm sure he was the reason Philly has struggled.

I think the biggest thing people don't see is that we could have traded someone and lost the depth we've never had before for a defender, but we didn't. This is solid.

He didnt help any, he rarely was the reason the Flyers won.

Probably just needs a change of scenery though.
