    Kopecky's rights traded to Florida

    Panthers GM Dale Tallon says he has acquired the negotiating rights to potential UFA Tomas Kopecky. Tallon thinks he can sign him before 7/1

    I guess Dale loves his old Hawks.

    Just heard this. I was hoping they would work out a deal but if Florida signs him than good luck to Kopecky

    For a 7th round pick.

    Dale Tallon is my favorite GM of all time. I hate Kopecky's style of hockey with a passion.

    The 'Hawks weren't going to resign Kopecky to begin with, so the fact that Stan Bo was even able to pry a 7th rd pick out of Dale Tallon is great. Keep stock piling the system boys! I don't understand this move as far as FLA understanding...Tallon traded a pick (granted a 7th rd pick) to just TALK to Tomas Kopecky. He might not even want to play for the Panthers, and if that's the case I don't understand the logic!?!

    If Kopecky doesn't sign in Florida, we get no pick. So, there's a chance we get something when we already knew he was gone. Fine trade in my book.

    Kopy put up 40 points, has size, and teams feel he can center in a pinch. He would have had some interest on the market, more so than us fans who don't like him would assume. If we were looking at his numbers from the outside we'd say 'Bring him in!'

    Not sure why Dale wouldn't just wait for the 1st to offer Kopy a place to play a bigger role, but he didn't and we got something for nothing.

    Honestly, we think Dale is a joke, but he's making some additions to his team at this point. Drafting Huberdeau won't hurt them either. I think they'll have a more competitive team than they previously have had, even if that still doesn't mean fans in the seats to watch the Ice Kittens.

    It's a long road down in Florida but Dale seems to be making a good effort to improve that club. Guys that we need to move or wont sign will be really solid players elsewhere. I figured Kopy was gone and at least we might get something in return. Going to need to look to increase net presence with Kopy and Brouwer gone, not that we were consistent about it with them.


    Rockford, pit stop on the road to being champions.

    I prefer to think that being friends with Marian Hossa has done a lot for his career. That and top 6 minutes for the Hawks did a lot to net him 42 points last season, while most of us were still calling for his head.

    He didn't hit or use his body the way one hopes a 6'3" bottom 6 type guy would, but oh well. He'll be missed, he had some great moments.

    Getting something out of nothing is the term we are looking for on this one.

    I hope the work out a deal.
