I have a feeling that players like Stalberg, MacArthur, Raymond, Clarkson, Boyes & Bickell will all land 2nd line money and I would bet against most of them producing.
I dream of the day when we "just say no" to the UFA market. I heard a very good interview with the new Stars GM Jim Nill on Sirius NHL Network and he mentioned in Detroit they had been watching this closely and felt the UFA market was going to dry up based on teams all keeping their key long term pieces under contract via extensions or trading them if they couldn't be extended. I just see this as the most terrible time of year to be shopping given the supply vs. demand pressure.
