Free Agent Frenzy

Recommended Posts

The craziness is about to begin with the start of free agency just hours away.  With the Habs clearing up cap space yesterday, it appears as if they could be active today.  As is our custom, let's use this thread to discuss all the goings-on while any Montreal moves will obviously get their own threads.

 

Personally, if the Habs could hold off on anything until after noon, that'd be great.  I'm on PHR coverage all morning so if there is any Montreal stuff, it may take a while for me to get it posted on the main site.

The Leafs complete the Zaitsev-Ceci trade which involved a lot more pieces than first anticipated.  It'll be interesting to see if Ceci files for arbitration; his award will be higher than the minimum walk-away threshold so it's possible that Toronto could simply cut bait if they want to save money.

 

Jason Spezza to Toronto, one year at or around the league minimum.

Sorry if this was posted somewhere, but Duchene to Nashville 7year/56 million. That's not a terrible deal, if it's true

I'd be very much on board with this. But I think the probability of it happening is very, very low.

I can't see Bergevin clearing cap space for the possibility of an offer sheet, given the teams have a week to respond.

OK, so the question is, what would you need to pay in trade, to get a young elite RFA -- who is refusing to sign at the price the team is willing to pay?

Do we have interest in Ferland? Wouldn’t mind seeing that.

The Stars appear to be going all out on a short-term Cup drive, rumoured to be signing three players nearing 35: Pavelski, Perry and Sekera.

Could pay more than that team and a pick?

($8.5-9/yr)

What team would tell rivals that they won't match an offer sheet? (TO said as much about Marner but that's an exception). If I'm MB and talks with Lee/Gardiner don't seem promising, then I do this 100%.

I'm totally stoked. This is a chance to really elevate the team and FINALLY start getting serious about winning.

We need to or otherwise we're just wasting  Price and Weber.
