Alright, here we go with one of the most exciting times of the hockey year: The free agent period!
Below is a list of what I believe to be the top free agents available as of June 26th, by position, in order from best to not as great ("worst" is too harsh of a word!)
UPDATED July 3, Midnight.
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS:
(Joe Sakic left off bcz will only return with Colorado; Peter Forsberg left off bcz will only play if healthy.)
(Teemu Selanne left off bcz is 99% certain to only return as a Duck.)
Ray Emery* (if on best behavior)
RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (wow, what a list coming up!):
There you have them, folks: The biggest names to follow as of Tuesday, July 1st!
