11 am central time it starts(contracts wise). Though the first signing should come in about an hour or two later.

I think last year the first one came in about 2hrs after the UFA Season opened.

I'd expect something to the degree this year.

It would almost guarantee there was tampering involved if you start to see guys signing at 12 o'clock or thereabouts (unless a team was granted permission to talk to a player)

What are you talking about?

You can talk to players after 12AM, signings can only be announced after 12PM.

I hope this year the signings are spread out a bit more because summer is just too damn long to have nothing hockey. Last year, mostly everything was done in the first 3 days.

It's not that I don't beleive you guys, but they go UFA on July first... And this is in 12 minutes, and therefore I thought that they could legally get signed right then.

Nope. IIRC, they can't sign until 12 PM ET July 1st.

They`re open for contract negotiations with any team, 12 PM is when the contract can be finalized.

Can teams say they've agreed verbally with a player on a deal before noon?

I would think so, but nothing is official yet. That's how you can get huge contract signings at 12:01 PM on July 1st.

I think I understand you say that, "teams can 'start' talking to UFAs at midnight EDT but no official signings until noon EDT."

Gary Bettman has laid down the law.

League sources told Sun Media yesterday that they've "never seen it so quiet" before the NHL free-agency period begins because teams are worried they'll be charged with tampering if they engage in anything that can be construed as contract discussions before Tuesday at noon.

While agents have always tried to get a handle on the unrestricted market before July 1, sources say Bettman told the GMs during a meeting at the Stanley Cup final in Detroit that if he caught somebody tampering, the team involved "would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."

Though punishment would be at Bettman's discretion, an NHL executive believes it would start out with a $1-million fine and, at the very least, a first-round draft pick.

It's nice on the west coast. No work for me tomorrow, get up at 8:30, eat some Honeycomb sit in front of the computer and turn on NHL Live. No real waiting for me.
