Rumours flying this morning that the Foligno signing is done. 2 years, average 1.2 per year. First year 0.875, 2nd year 1.5 and Foligno will remain an RFA after it's done.

Great signing by Murray...if true. Two people are saying it now, including SensChirp who I trust.

A good signing. It certainly sets the range for Regin.

It sure does. I like this deal a lot - if true - it's nice for Foligno and it's nice for our cap.

Agreed. This is a great signing. A good piece at a good price.

Some bodies still need to be moved in and out to truly contend this year, but this is a definite step in the right direction.

Still wouldn't be shocked to see a sign and trade. Just have that feeling...

That's a good number for Foligno if true. BTW, Where are you getting the numbers from?

1.2 would be great considering I think Foligno warrants a larger contract than Regin on service time alone.

There was a guy on HF who had nailed like...99% of college signings, FA signings etc. He destroyed his reputation by claiming Spezza had been traded - because he came back the next day and said it was a 'joke' to 'open people's eyes'. A lot of people wrote off this guy as a source, but the mods over there say that he's back to not BSing.

He provided the numbers and another guy at HF who I trust PMed me to tell me he heard the same, then SensChirp posted that he heard the same.

0.875, then 1.5. One really, really low number and one market value number, with the average being perfectly market value IMO.

i would be very happy with that deal. These are his two years to prove he belongs in any team's top 6. Hope he really turns some heads this season.

Foligno's kind of dead to me, Regin appears way more talented.

Time will tell of course, he's a good hard working player.

Foligno doesn't possess the slick skill set of Regin, but he's a nice, big, strong power forward who already has a 17 goal season under his belt and has a fantastic attitude. Granted, he's the easiest piece to trade because of his age, salary etc., but I have a feeling people will be surprised by him this upcoming season.

Foligno is two years younger than Regin. How can he possibly be dead to people?

I've always liked Foligno, he has a lot of heart, and he doesn't back down. His shot could be better, but he tries as hard as anybody, and doesn't back down from board battles. He's runs the cycle perfectly, because he will go into the dirty areas, and does get chances and creates chances because of it.

And with his salary, there really is no point in trading him in my opinion. If his cap hit really is 1.2, that is superb. He will have a rebound season, and as you say he has a 17 goal season under his belt. We can't afford to have too many other high priced forwards, which is why he should not be traded. No he's not a top 6 yet, but he's also not payed like one.

Best of all, he's a player that doesn't complain or pout if he's only out there for a couple minutes; those couple minutes he'll hit some guys and make himself known. He's a really good team player. Look at him after goals on either side, he'll be one of the happiest guys when someone else scores. He talks to everyone on the bench, he seems very well liked. I'll be ecstatic if I see his number 71 skating for us on opening day with a 1.2 million dollar cap hit.

Foligno's gotta improve his defensive game if he wants to stick around in Ottawa for the long haul. If he adapts a mike fisher style, and he's already a hard-nosed winger, I think he becomes that much more valuable to the team. Then you say 'Adios' to Fisher in 3 seasons.
