NHL free agency: Defensemen at premium this summer
That leaves options like Ryan Whitney, 30, who last toiled for the Oilers. He’s a sizable 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, and has had some productive seasons. He’s coming off a six-year, $24-million contract and, like everyone else, will be seeking a raise.
Other defensemen headed toward UFA status include Marek Zidlicky, Joe Corvo, Andrew Ference and Ron Hainsey.
Signing a player on the market has the benefit of costing only money, not something in return. The Wings have an excess of forwards,
but in order to trade for a high-end guy
— like Phoenix’s Keith Yandle, for example —
it’s going to cost talented young players or blue-chip prospects or a mix of both.
The Rangers need to explore the market for DZ.
