Free Agency Frenzy: Hour 6 - The Press Conference Hour
4:00 - Lets see what Tallon has to say now...
4:01 - More than winning the cup, Tallon says Hossa wanted to learn how to lead. I guess backchecking wasn't part of the lesson plan
4:03 - "Hossa's played a lot of games..." that's the first thing Tallon says when asked why him over Havlat
4:04 - "We've identified the core of our team".. says Panda's signing won't impact next year. I'd love some of what ever he's on.
4:07 - "How does he impact your team? Where do you get better?" - I'm guessing that reporter works for the Red Eye
4:10 - How bored is Kopecky going to be on the conference call he's on with Hossa in a little bit?
4:11 - Confirmation that Brouwer, Eager, Versteeg, Barker and Crawford were all qualified
4:13 - Interesting end to the presser there with Dale - 8 players at 33 Million but offers out ot all the RFAs? Good luck with that buddy
4:18 - Cammalleri is in talk with the Habs - and Havlat may have been offered a multi-year deal with the Wild...
4:20 - hah.. 420.. oh .. and ERRONEOUS Havlat wasn't offered a deal from the Wild.. that was Cammalleri again..
4:23 - Koci signs for cheap with the Avs - I'm not sure that's far enough away from Chara. He does like climbing mountains. Good luck sir..
4:25 - Confirmed, Cammalleri is a Hab 5 years/30Million
4:31 - OK.. we're ending the actual live blogging aspect of this and just jumping into the comments. We'll open up a new thread if the comments start to lag...
UPDATE: Pahlsson's going to Columbus, continuing Hitchcock's tradition of grabbing forwards who don't score, for 2.6 per, which I believe is a raise of 1 million for Sammi. Here's hoping Kopecky can shut guys down.
