via Chris Johnston tweet, Big money for Filip Kuba from #panthers…$8 million over two years.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Panthers were a major player during last year’s free agency frenzy and they decided to get involved this year signing Filip Kuba. This means Jason Garrison will be finding a new team for next season, but this is a pretty good signing for the Panthers. Kuba had a solid year for the Senators last [...]
Free-agent defenseman Filip Kuba signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Florida Panthers, NHL.com reported, based on Twitter from his agent, Rich Evans. Kuba figures to be a replacement for Jason Garrison, who is an unrestricted free agent. Kuba, 35, had 32 points in 73 games with the Ottawa Senators last season.
Decent offensive defensemen can play a long time in the NHL. Sunday brought more evidence of this as veteran Joe Corvo returned to Carolina as a free agent and Filip Kuba returned to Florida.Kuba got nice money: two years for $8 million. He will turn 36 this season, but he is coming off a stellar 32-point, plus-26 campaign for Ottawa. Kuba was a great influence on young Erik Karlsson...
It’s your lucky day! Two! Two UFA of the Day posts today. They both deal with toughness, the first was Brandon Prust, now we turn our attention to Zenon Konopka.
Name: Zenon Konopka
Size: 6’0″, 209 Lbs
Why the Canucks might want him: If the Canucks target Zenon Konopka it wouldn’t just be for his ability to punch people in the face. With Konopka you not only get that...
This is probably one of the more interesting stories of the day. A few hours ago Colorado posted on their Twitter that they had agreed to terms with John Mitchell and Matt Carkner but Carkner’s agent came out and said no deal was reached and he is now a New York Islander having signed a 3 year [...]
The Ottawa Senators moved to fill a void on their roster left by the loss of defenseman Filip Kuba in unrestricted free agency by acquiring defenseman Marc Methot from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for forward Nick Foligno on Sunday. Methot, 27, had seven goals, 44 assists and 208 penalty minutes in six seasons with the Blue Jackets. He has three years left on his contract...
Goaltender Scott Clemmensen is staying with the Florida Panthers, and defenseman Filip Kuba is returning after more than a decade away.
The Panthers announced a two-year extension for Clemmensen on Sunday, their first official move in the NHL's free agency period. Not long afterward, the team announced another two-year deal with Kuba - a 1995 draft pick by Florida who last played...
There was no Ryan Suter. There was no Rick Nash. There was no Zach Parise walking through that door.
For anyone who was expecting the Ottawa Senators to make a splash through free agency or a trade, you probably went to bed last night disappointed that the organization didn’t improve itself exponentially over the course of one day.
It’s the dreadfully naïve and unrealistic...
The Ottawa Senators swapped a pair of assets on the first day of free agency, adding blue liner Mike Lundin -- formerly of Tampa Bay -- and forward Guillaume Latendresse -- formerly of Minnesota -- in the process.
The addition of both players are smart money acquisitions for Bryan Murray, as he's paying just a shade over $2M combined for the pair to come to Ottawa. At times...
I need to run...have a 9:20am t-time, and, oh yeah, I'm getting married at 2:30pm this afternoon. Priorities, priorities.
But before I head out, just a quick rumor: The Justin Schultz decision will be out in a few hours, and it sounds like the only two teams left in the battle for his services are the Edmonton Oilers and the Ottawa Senators.
Apparently, Schultz informed...
The Ottawa Senators have spoken candidly all summer about hauling in a top-four defenseman in preparation for next season. The departure of two former blue liners -- Filip Kuba and Matt Carkner -- certainly pushed the acquisition of said blue liner into a priority of sorts for Bryan Murray, and on day one of unrestricted free agency, he pulled the trigger on a deal with the Columbus...
via Darren Dreger tweet, Konopka agrees to 2 year contract with Minnesota Wild.
So we can put the Rick Nash hysteria to bed...again.Also interesting to hear from Sylain St-Laurent that Jesse Winchester may be moving on:
Jesse Winchester devrait aussi quitter Ottawa dans les prochains jours. Plus de place pour lui chez les #Sens.
