Panthers RFA signing watch

Might as well start a thread...the Panthers have until 5pm today to sign seven RFA players who are otherwise eligible to go to arbitration. Let's see what the game plan is (apparently it's to go to arbitration to save cash and alienate 1/3 of the team).

Looking at our RFA's, we have to sign, uh...ALL OF THEM. This promises to be as interesting as any UFA activity. Look for Florida to pinch every penny possible (with the exception of Jokinen (team captain and Keenan lover) and Luongo (why the Panthers are a member of the NHL and not the UHL)).

Biron, obviously...which one do you think would actually stand around waiting to sign a watch? He's forgotten he was bought out and isn't restricted.

And then the fax will become an issue again...I'm sure Keenan recovered it after the whole Roussin affair. Too cheap to buy a new 4-in-1 for $100.

You'd think an organization that plays at the OFFICE DEPOT CENTER would have a top-of-the-line fax machine, wouldn't you?

That's notification. The deadline to prevent players from being eligible to take the club to arbitration is today at 5pm. They then still must file for arbitration by a certain date.

Incidentally, 3:21pm and all's quiet on the Southern Front. Pittsburgh and Boston have made the most noise today.

Signings by Kings, Oilers, Wings, Bruins, Pens, Sharks, and Canes. Nothing by Panthers. Nada. Not even a hint.

sportnet.ca's free agent tracker. Go to their site (www.sportsnet.ca), go to hockey central through the menu, and select free agent trackers. Quick and easy list if you refresh periodically.

EDIT: OH, NOW it posts...4 minutes later and after I retype the damn thing.

Tried to post a response, but it wouldn't let me. I'm thinking they're banning reference to my source, but I'll try again

the free agent tracker on www.sportsnet.ca - click on hockey central in the menu and take the link from there.

Samsonov and Axelsson got resigned by Bruins, Sedins resigned by Vancouver...still nada from Pantherland. 5:03pm now.

http://www.nhlpa.com/Content/Feature.asp?contentId=3454 no Panthers on the list of players filing for arbitration.

The Islanders have 4 players! Milbury is in for some fun.

Interesting. Does this mean all the RFA's signed qualifying 1 year offers or that we can still try to negotiate long term deals. I want at least Jokinen & Luongo locked up for more than a year.

I'd love to see the Stars let Morrow go, man he'd be awesome for the Panthers.

Players that didn't file for arbitration are not under contract at all. Unless the team files for arbitration with the player (that deadline is today), they are simply holding out for a contract. Hopefully everyone will be signed by camp, but there are no guarantees.

Qualifying offers expire next Monday, on the 15th. Translation, at that time the Panthers can lowball all their RFAs to lower dollar figures and still retain their rights until at least December, when negotiations are mandated to be done or terminated and that player unable to play anywhere in the NHL.

Big 4 stay unsigned

Quote:
Van Ryn is the closest to a deal. The team extended his $1.064 million qualifying offer until training camp and there is progress on a three-year deal. Jokinen is believed to be seeking about $4 million a year. Considering the Panthers didn't offer him even $3 million before the lockout, he could be headed toward a holdout. Todd Diamond, one of Jokinen's agents, said he's had one preliminary discussion with GM Mike Keenan. "They've indicated that he's an important part of the team and would like to do something long-term, but we haven't really started," Diamond said.

Keenan said he plans to focus on Jokinen. "I'd definitely like him to be in camp; and it behooves him to be in training camp, particularly in light of the fact that he's captain. But we have to do what's right for the team," Keenan said.

Bouwmeester had rejected the Panthers' qualifying offer of $945,630 and is seeking a multiyear, multimillion-dollar contract. "He has the possibility of a very good future, but he has a lot to prove yet, he's still a young player in the developmental stage of his career and we'll treat it as such. Players have to realize where they are in their own development," Keenan said.
Ah, so Jokinen does still have BOTH Todd Diamond AND Mark Gandler as his agents.

I wouldn't give Bouwmeester a huge contract by any means.

But we do need VanRyn and Jokinen locked up long term.
