Mirtle: Hossa a Hawk

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Kopecky a Hawk too, and this is interesting from Kevin Allen,

With Hossa signed with Chi 4 12 yrs, I have ‘Hawks at $34 mill for 8 players in 10-11 with no Kane, Toews, Keith

From Elliot Friedman’s Twitter account,

Pierre LeBrun (the real one) reports it is 12 years, $5.2 million per season for Hossa.

Via TSN, then James Mirtle.  No word on money or term.

And so, I’m thinking the rivalry with Chicago?  Just got a bit more intense.

Leafs Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

As for Toronto, last week an NHL GM told me that he figured his Leafs’ counterpart, Brian Burke, would have both Chris Neil and Travis Moen locked up within the first 24 hours of free agency – and that they would be two-thirds of Toronto’s third line next year. Let’s see if he turns out to be right.

read on for some Hossa/Edmonton thoughts. 

Regarding Hossa, Dreger reporting Chiccago showing interest but I wonder, why not just sign Havlat?

Tampa Bay signed Mattias Ohlund

added 12:19pm, via Tampa Bay Lightning official Twitter,

USA Today’s Kevin Allen is reporting the Lightning have signed defenseman Mattias Ohlund. No confirmation from the team.

added 12:22pm, Bob McKenzie of TSN confimed deal. 7yr deal $3.75M cap hit.

added 12:24pm, TSN link.

added 12:56pm, from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Last year, the Tampa Bay Lightning were the stars of the opening day of the free-agent season – and ended up signing so many new players that they had ultimately had 18 forwards on one-way contracts by the time training camp opened.

This year, the Lightning were also first off the mark, signing ex-Canucks’ defenceman Mattias Ohlund to a new contract. The move was done strictly to help fellow Swede Victor Hedman, their 18-year-old first-round draft choice, adapt more easily to the NHL.
