Every year I hear on HF boards how the "local boys" will come home and play for cheap. Vernon fiddler last year is the most recent, but I don't think you can count on cap friendly contracts because of geographical connection.
Works in Vancouver (Hamhuis & Garrison, and just missed out on J.Schultz, well, because of the other two). Works in MIN as well (Parise & Suter). This year's crop seems to have quite a bounty of central & northern AB/SK players who accurately fit third & fourth-line profiles. I would guess at least a couple end up in Oiler jersey's this summer.

For similar reasons, I suspect CGY has a great shot at landing Bozak and M.Raymond (just like they got that college kid a couple weeks ago from High River).
