2011 Free Agency (Part II)

Wow! Stewart signs for $900K/2 years. We kicked the tires and couldn't match?

Another year at $900K is marginal for even a 4th line guy that has the potential to score 40 points moving up in the lineup.

Damn, Anthony at 900k. If he doesn't pan out, waive him.

That's moneypuck - guy has size and may have broken out. Benoit Pouliot is the other guy who IMO could be a breakout candidate.

Canes IMO are FA winners. Good contracts.

Looks like Leafs finally did something. Connolly for $4.75m.

Toronto I don't know..they had a HOF center but couldn't find good wingers to play with. Now they have a great winger but no center to play with.

Yeah 5m is an overpayment, only a two year deal though.

There are a lot of things players consider beyond $ -- like the opportunities there are for ice time up and down the line up. The Canucks could offer Stewart 900k, but if he's not likely to get a lot of ice time on a deep team, then it's not as attractive an offer as the same $/term from Carolina.

Well, they are paying #1 Center money for him...

Also glad that Richards is gone because a) Gives us a chance to nab Dubinsky b) Stops people here from building teams with Richards playing with the Sedins or Kesler.

Dubinsky or Callahan would be absolutely amazing.

Apparently they have enough money to sign all their RFAs

For Stewart, the Canucks called but apparently Stewart didn't like the offer. There was a tweet about it yesterday. I'm guessing he was looking for a team with less depth... which the Hurricanes are.

People need to realize that it's more than just the team making an offer, the player actually has to want to play here. For Stewart, if he has a chance to go somewhere like Carolina, it's a much better opportunity to increase his stock over the two years.

How, again does Connolly fit in with Burke's strategy of building a team around truculence, grit, and another synonym?

Same Reason Torres didn't sign here. He probably saw all the 2nd/3rd line forwards on the roster and figured he would get a bigger opportunity for playing time in the desert.

Just checked it out on capgeek, the Rangers should have enough money for all the RFA's, and more.

Matt Bradley signed a two year deal with Florida. He was one of the more desirable options to replace Torres' physicality.

Damn. No way the Rangers would let Callahan walk but I was hoping Dubinsky would slip through the cracks.

The increased cap space has worked against us so far. Any other 2nd liner RFA who's with a team that might not afford him?
