All in all this is the best free agency we've had in a while, and it's only the first day. We can still make trades to clear space, and possibly pick up another player or two.
Well, and you have to think Smith, Spaling, or Gaustad are going to be moved, as they would be the odd men out after today. I guess a lot will depend on whether Poile is expecting Forsberg and Beck to make the team out of camp, and how regular a player Clune is going to be. At the least, assuming Forsberg and Beck are penciled in, at least one of those three is gone.
