On 99.9 the fan, Raleigh sports radio, JR just stated that this mystery free agent is waiting patiently for a roster move to take place to free up some cap room.

 

So, who is it and how much?

It's Jagr and he probably wants 4 million when we can literally only offer him 3 million... I don't know what else he wants us to do... There's not a single roster move to make.

The problem is that he have five rfa's to resign and a draft pick to sign (assuming he makes the roster).

At this point I hope its not Jagr.  We are in over our heads against the cap.  Signing him isn't going to help.  There are better ways to spend that money.  I feel like we are already patching holes with bubble gum to stay afloat.

Jagr would be a good guy to have on the third line with possibly two rookies in Rask and Lindholm but at three million (and especially four million) dollars, it's not worth it.

 

He's a 41, not 21...

 

I'm not going to lie though... This line-up looks solid

 

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Tuomo Ruutu

Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm - Jaromir Jagr

Kevin Westgarth - Riley Nash - Patrick Dwyer

Drayson Bowman

 

Justin Faulk - Joni Pitkanen

Andrej Sekera - Tim Gleason

Mike Komisarek - Jay Harrison

Brett Bellemore

 

Cam Ward

Anton Khudobin

I think we should really re-sign Brent

JR said a while ago that the door has closed on re-signing any of their UFA's.

How much is Brent asking for? Can't be equal or more to 3 or 4 mil that Jagr wants. JR is a dumbass sometimes.

    • Funny, but the thing I noticed was that he considered himself a fullback---(The Panthers are one of the few teams that used a FB...) when he had never played.  I am sure the Panthers told him that, but I wondered if that was HIS intent. I think this is another "Swiss Army knife" player.  He is a FB with TE experience.  Can he catch?  Can he slide out to a wing or even line up as a TE?  Throw him into an offense that has McCaffrey (who can catch passes) and Samuel (who can run the ball) and these three players are capable of lining up as TE/RB/WR, FB/WR/WR, TE/RB/RB, etc. I am not suggesting that he is going to line up as a TE as Olsen does, but Brockel or even Dickson Hbacking could be in the cards for him.
    • He has fumbled one single time. I don't think he's a lock. However if Fozzie is expendable then of the current guys I suppose he makes it.
