[QUOTE=Lafontaine;14051879]Unbelievable! I know that lots of these guys will sign with their teams before next off-season, but it is really incredible how many superstars, and even just good first/second line younger players are on the market! Look at this:
SUPER CLASS UFAs:
Zetterberg, Lecavalier, Gaborik
SUPER CLASS RFAs:
Malkin, E. Staal!!! (not to mention, J. Staal, Statsny and Kopitar)
"A" CLASS UFAs)
D. Sedin, H. Sedin, Ryan Miller, Afinogenov, Kovalev, Havlat, Erik Cole, Tanguay, Komisarek, Bertuzzi, Biron, Ohlund...
"B" CLASS UFAs)
Franzen, Cammelleri, Koivu, Gionta, Madden, Sullivan, Zhubov, Lehtinen...
"C" CLASS UFAs)
Tkachuk, McDonald, Khabibulin, Morris, Horcoff, Leopold, Connolly, Niedermayer, Pahlsson...
Plus SO many more!
Do you think Gainey is looking long term and targeting 2009? Koivu and Kovalev are UFAs.
With so many 20-something superstars available, does he go an entirely new route two seasons from now?[/
: Can you name
UFA player, or, for that matter RFA player who, came from a US based team and signed with a Canadian based team? Just one!
If you are aware of one, just one, please inform me because I cannot think of even one!
