Obviously JBo is the prize UFA. After that, the only guys who are in the same calibre as Vis are old as dirt (Zubov - likely to end up back in DAL, Blake and Schneider). The other players don't even come close (Spacek the closest of the bunch, and he's 35). And much like Zubie, Blake and Schneider are going to want to play for a sure playoff team rather than a maybe like PHX.

These are the teams I think are desperate for a puck mover
ATL
BUF
CBJ
FLA
NJD
PHX

Of those teams I could see NJ, ATL and CBJ being the most interested. I think PHX has the largest money problems and wouldn't be as interested, likely hoping to hit a homerun with youth (Ahnelov).
Atlanta doesn't need another defenceman. Hainsey has done well this year and Enstrom and Bogosian have been very good.
