On NHL Live today, Dale Tallon announced that he had acquired Tomas Kopecky’s negotiating rights from the Blackhawks in exchange for a conditional seventh round draft pick.
While I will not miss his ability to take the stupidest penalties known to man at the exact wrong times, he was fan-friendly and a decent person. I’ll choose to remember his time on the Blackhawks in that way until he starts taking stupid penalties for the Panthers. Then I might giggle a little bit. Godspeed, Kopecky.
