2013 NHL Free Agency: Day One Open Thread

The madness starts at 9:00 AM. Will the Kings be caught up in it?

5:00 PM: Unless something huge happens, this will be our last update of the day. Come back tomorrow for the conclusion of: Pennermania! (credits roll)

  • Jarome Iginla, finally, is a Boston Bruin. He'll make $6 million for one season there.
  • Devin Setoguchi is on the move again, this time being traded from Minnesota to Winnipeg.
  • Matt Cooke is back in the Western Conference, signing with the Wild.

4:00 PM: Things!

3:00 PM: Nothing. Dwight Howard left, I guess.

2:00 PM: The rest of the NHL slows down, but Kings news is here!

  • Los Angeles signed UFA d-man Jeff Schultz for $700K. We took a quick look at the move here.
  • Vancouver needed a center; they took Brad Richardson off our hands for two years, $2.3 million.
  • George Parros moves on again; this time, he's going to the Montreal Canadiens.

1:00 PM: So much for the lull!

12:00 AM: Things finally slowed down a little bit. Key moves:

11:00 AM: No calm before the free agent storm this year. Lots of moves so far. Chief among them:

10:00 AM: Rob Scuderi has signed with Pittsburgh. 4 years, $13.5 million. Kings will miss him, however, they now have a bit of room to work with today. Read our Scuderi goodbye post here.

9:00 AM: We're off! So far this morning...

8:45 AM: Almost time to see what Dean has up his sleeve. We'll update this post with big free agent news from around the league. And as soon as any news breaks regarding Rob Scuderi, Dustin Penner, or Brad Richardson, or if the Kings do go after another free agent, we'll let you know.

Speaking of which, Scuderi rumors are already flying around. Let's see what happens.
