Greiss. He is poised to surprise somebody and steal a starter's job (just not on the Sharks).

C Mac made 3.25 with us he is NOT going to be signed for under 2

That's what's coming out of Detroit that Filppula wants north of $5.0m In the $5.5m over 5 or 6 years range.

Probably because ference likely wont be a steal of any kind. he is what he is, an average 4-5 defenseman with no more potential left.

I've got a feeling that Greiss will become an average starter.

I think Khudobin gets signed by another team. Boston is going to have to give Rask a nice big payday this off-season (probably 5-5.5M per for 6-8 years), and I think Khudobin will get offered a contract elsewhere (UFA) that Boston can't match because of their tight cap.

I think Boston is better off (and will) signing a 2-3 year, veteran, stop-gap for cheap until Subban is ready to make the jump.

I bet Khudobin lands a 1-2M contract somewhere else.

It will be contract dependent.

At the right price, guys like Bickell, Clarkson, Horton, Boyd Gordon, Scuderi all can be "steals".

I'm hoping for another hometown discount for the Leafs this year, preferably one of Weiss or Clarkson.

I knew there was a name escaping me that's my super-duper top secret UFA steal and it came to me today: Rostislav Olesz. This all hinges on Chicago buying him out which I think is extremely likely. We all know Olesz: big-time prospect who some, in fact, believed was to form a Big 3 for 2004's NHL draft. He got walloped by Phaneuf in the WJHCs, suffered a concussion and was never the same. His draft stock fell and he was chosen at 7th overall. He had a couple good seasons with Florida and signed a 6 year extension with a $3.1 cap hit and then the injuries set in. He played 37 games the first year of his deal, then a relatively healthy one, and then a season of 44 games before Florida offloaded his salary in the Brian Campbell deal. He last just 6 games with the Blackhawks before being sent to the minors. He was hurt again this year, got healthy and was waived by Chicago and sent to the AHL.

BUT, his time with Rockford in the AHL this year was extremely productive. He put up 7 goals and 19 points in just 14 games with Rockford. He's still just 27 years old. If he gets bought out, I think someone offers him a cheap 1-way deal and he opens a bunch of eyes next, provided he stays healthy.

Or else, you know, he just goes overseas because no one wants to offer him a 1-way deal.

Tough question.

I feel like if he went to Pittsburgh, then P-M Bouchard could be the steal here.

But it's a weak crop, I guess I'll go with Boyd Gordon because of what he can do for you on your bottom six.

Anton Khudobin in net though is interesting and super darkhorse goes to Tim Thomas.
