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.

Rangers Linked to Defensemen

It's no secret that even before the Marc Staal injury the Rangers sixth defensive position was in flux. While Steve Eminger has staked claim of the fifth spot in Staal's absence, Roman Hamrlik, Matt Gilroy and Stu Bickel have all failed to seize the opportunity. So it is not surprising to see the Rangers linked to so many defensemen around the league. First, Elliotte...

Panthers bank on Mueller regaining his rookie form

The Florida Panthers, right now anyway, don't look much different than they did last season. Gone is defenseman Jason Garrison, replaced by Ottawa's Filip Kuba. Mikael Samuelsson went to Detroit, and Florida signed Peter Mueller from Colorado to replace him. As of now, Florida will go into the season with the same goalie tandem in Jose Theodore and Scott Clemmensen with...

Defensemen Joe Corvo, Filip Kuba change teams

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...

Ducks Won’t Chase Suter

from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog, On the surface, Suter figures to command at least $7 million annually when he hits the open market on Sunday and it would make perfect sense for Ducks GM Bob Murray to make his pitch first thing in the morning. It’ll be tough to outdo Detroit or Philadelphia or Minnesota or even Nashville but it would at least say that you’re serious about addressing...

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.
