Florida - it's hard to get value on UFA day but that's no reason to overpay UFAs on top of that. Yeah, they'll be better than they were. They might be the 10th best team in the East now. Much good will it do to them. Tallon is repeating what got him fired in Chicago.

Colorado - Handed Washington a lottery pick for Varlamov and signed Gigučre. Meanwhile, Vokoun was right there on the market.
I'm surprised this team hasnt been mentioned more. When you take into account the brouwer trade and grabbing hamrlik, ward while maintaining laich... an already big team just got bigger and a little meaner. While halpern is a smaller guy, they certainly got an elite faceoff man, who who can fit well in a checking role.

Washington just became a bit tougher to play against.
