    Yep! :D

    Might I add : EXCLUSIVE permission! :D
    The Habs want to get Stanley for their 100th anniversary! :agreed:

    Looks like Columbus picked up Umberger as well... they should be looking at a good season.

    Sorry Steve, but it looks like Hossa changed his mind : he will be a free agent on july first.

    Yeah I read that. Who knows :shrug: At this point there's so much up in the air for the Pens that I'm just waiting to see what happens :agreed:

    Saw it's definite, Emery is going bye bye :D

    Yep. And it's probably bye-bye to the NHL, unless a team REEEEALLY needs a goaler. :lol:
    Everyone around the league now knows about his behavior.

    Hehe yeah you'd have to be pretty desperate to pick him up.

    I gotta' say it was sort of a dick move by Hossa to tell the press he'd take less money to stay with a good team, then turn down the Pens offer to 'see what happens' on the free agent market :lol: I completely understand going for the money, but if you're going to do that then don't imply to the press that you're not, you know?

    blues grabbed up chris mason, in addition to our 4th overall draft pick thats going to probably be playing this year. Looking up. and thats a dickhead move by hossa, its a stupid move too, with all the young tallent, its obvious that the pens are going to be contenders for a while

    Yeah. The Pens GM told him not to count on that offer being there after July 1, as their priorities are now on their other unrestricted free agents, so if he really wants to play in Pittsburgh he may have just shot himself in the foot :shrug: What I love is he turned down the offer, but apparently his agent still told the Pens they're his first choice :lol:

    This was a classy move by Tampa:

    Penguins warn Hossa of risks of free agency

    Yup just read that. And thanks we'll pass :lol:

    Personally I think Malone is nuts asking for $5 million given that last season was the first year he's played up to his potential, but that's just me. I mean he was great last year, but there's no guarantee he'll play like that and not his previous two mediocre years next season :shrug:

    :( Damn. We need to throw him out! Two 30 goals seasons!!! Come on! :lol:

    A lot of players are playing that game, especially with the new salary cap. We're probably going to loose Streit over this, simply because he's asking 3 millions(!) :shrug: Too bad, no thank you.

    Yep and Gainey hasn't made him an offer yet.
    Streit ---> :wavey:


    ... And we've lost the exclusive negotiation with Sundin, as he will discuss with all others teams starting tomorrow. Oh well... :shrug:

    I'm still very undecided as far as the whole Sundin thing is concerned. I'm very curious to see why Bob Gainey is interested with him more so then any other free agent out there.

    Though the reason Sundin is taking so long isn't so much because he wants to consider options with other teams. Hell, he's not even sure if he's playing next year :lol:

    Same here. I'm not quite sure if I want him on our team or not. I've hated him for so long... Damn Maple Leafs. :lol:

    I've never had much of a problem with the Leafs :shrug: I find the rivalry very exciting and they're a team with lots of heart IMO. But I understand why so many hab fans hate them though!

    And Orpik turned down the Pen's initial offer. This is going to be an interesting summer :(
