José Signs with Florida
José signed a 2-year, $3 mill contract with the Florida Panthers. Mike Russo told me in an e-mail this morning that Florida was José's first choice, so I'm soooo happy for him!!! And he'll be the #1 guy. Russo also said José has been looking at Florida since January. He wants to retire down there, so this is his transition.
Gosh, I am just so happy for him, I can't stand it!
More later...I'm having trouble focusing right now.
Oh, and he was trending worldwide on twitter for a while. He's still trending in the U.S. and Canada. I can't keep up with all the tweets about his signing.
