Dan Spiegel: One Bad Contract Gone: Kuba Bought Out

As GM Dale Tallon continued to overhaul this roster last year, he signed Filip Kuba to an alarming deal worth $8 million over two years. It was obvious right away that he wasn't playing with Erik Karlsson any more, and his production showed it. While he improved gradually as the season went along, he was obviously one of the slowest players on the ice, and did not provide...

Need A Dman? How About Kuba?

via TSN, The Florida Panthers decided to buy out the remaining year of Filip Kuba's contract on Wednesday. The 36-year-old blue liner, who signed as an unrestricted free agent last summer, carried a cap hit of $4 million next season.

Filip Kuba… an even lesser option for the Wings on defense

Ok let’s think the absolute worst case scenario for the Wings when it comes to free agency and filling in the needs on defense. If Ryan Suter, Matt Carle, Jason Garrison, Dennis Wideman, and Justin Schultz all land anywhere but Detroit this offseason, Ansar Khan of, believes that Ottawa’s Filip Kuba could get a call… “… a decent two-way defenseman with good size...

Potential UFA target: Filip Kuba

Depending on how the next few weeks play out one option to bolster the Rangers blueline may be Filip Kuba, at present an Ottawa Senator. Depending on your opinion, Kuba is a great example of the ever-thinning free agent class this summer. With guys like Brad Stuart heading out West, Dennis Wideman unlikely to reach free agency, and Jaro Spacek and Pavel Kubina not making for appealing...

Filip Kuba Likely To Hit The UFA Market

from Don Brennan of Off The Posts at the Ottawa Sun, Bryan Murray says now that the Senators are not likely to re-sign Filip Kuba. This is not surprising. This is not a ploy. This is a sound business decision. Teammates would like to see the big defenceman return. He’s a popular guy, they say. He’s good for the power play, they insist. He has immensely helped Erik Karlsson...

Searching For Next Season's Filip Kuba + Sens Prospects Ink ELCs?

  As the object of fan and media derision last summer, Filip Kuba was without a question, an easy target for ridicule. Coming off one of the worst statistical seasons in modern team history – 2 goals, 16 points, +/- of -26 – everyone was looking forward to the day that his contract expired or the day that he was traded or waived; whichever came first. (To put in perspective...
