Granted, some of these players may retire, but you know Anaheim and Detroit will re-sign Nieds and Lidstrom if they don't retire.
How many teams are going to bid on Boychuk over one of these guys? Just being UFA isn't enough to get Boychuk 3+ mil. Seidenberg only got a 1 year/2.25 mil deal last offseason. Leopold only got 1 year/1.75 mil.
13 playoff games isn't enough of a sample size for Boychuk to get a large payday.
I'd say out of the defenseman you listed, only 6-8 of them actually hit free agency, and of them I don't know if I really say they're really anymore "proven" than Boychuk is.
