I love the lies being told about how they can't talk details. What *poo poo*. How could any player narrow down a list of options unless they discussed details.

No Justin Williams for Dallas.

He signed to go back to the friggin' Hurricanes ...

I guess after two cups it's all about the money now for this "character" guy.

I get it. But I seriously judge players who choose to sign with bottom feeders like Carolina or Florida or Phoenix when there are other options available.

Here, I'll be going old school Knives and updating the first post of this thread so that it's easier for y'all to see the collected signings.

If Carolina would get consistent goaltending they'd be a playoff team.

Nashville brings back Lindback.

It amuses me that all the big-name free agents always go to New York and they never win the cup. This has been true for decades now.

Per Sportsnet:

Alexander Radulov: Habs made a final four-year offer, but Radulov wants at least five years. The Stars are the biggest threat to pull him from Montreal.

Jumboner Joe signs a 1-year deal to stay with the Sharks,
which prolly means Marleau will re-up with them soon?

I just realized that there are a lot of people on the HFBoards who used to post here. I haven't been there in years.

Welp. And as we head into the evening it all comes down to waiting around for either Radulov or Marleau.

Pretty sure Radulov is just using Dallas to drive up his demand/price in MTL and has no intention of leaving.
LOL Marleau is probably doing the exact same thing to us too.

The Have just now signed Price to an eight year extension. I wonder if that helps them keep Radulov.

"Also, could be nothing, could be something, but Radulov is now following Seguin on Instagram."
