Potential Kings UFA's

Derek Armstrong
Eric Belanger
Ken Belanger
Jeff Cowan
Nathan Dempsey
Trent Klatt
Mattias Norstrom
Luc Robitaille
Jeremy Roenick

From what I've been able to find, and from the nice little thread they have on the free agent board, this is the list of players who are due to become UFA's this offseason. Obviously Klatt and the Sandman are retired but I listed them anyways.

Sticky this or for those that are interested here you go.

Roenick and Luc are on that list also....

From those names you listed, I only see Belanger, Army and Norstrom getting offers. Maybe Cowan too...

Not old enough. Garon will be 28 at the beginning of the 2006-07 season. The UFA age will be 29.

I hope we keep:

Derek Armstrong
Eric Belanger

Mattias Norstrom

Jeff Cowan "Maybe"

Hey isn't Miller a UFA after the season? I thought he and Matty had the same amount of years in their contracts.

With players like Kopitar and Tukonen possibly coming up and with a decent free agent crop to choose from there will be alot of options better than Jeff Cowan.

Still need someone to be the 4th line physical guy or to be the scratched player.

I suppose I don't really care who that is.

Resigning Matty is an absolute must. Army might test the waters and could get decent cheddar elsewhere. Same with E. Belanger.

Seems like half the league is UFA next year. Never seen this many star players UFA in my life in any sport. going to be crazy.

Belanger will only be 28 so he is a RFA, not a UFA. Armstrong, Cowan, and Dempsey have option years so expect Armstrong and Cowan to be here for another year.

The ones throwing me for a loop, are Corvo and Belanger. Some say one is going to be a fa and the other isn't and vice versa. Anyone know for sure?

I could swear that EB had a opition in his contract. But frankly the lock-out killed what little memory I had for all these contracts.

Corvo should be a UFA (he wll be 29 by July 1 and will have four accrued seasons counting the lockout year). Belanger should be a RFA (he will not turn 29 until December).

If Matty is willing to sign for under 2 mill/ year then fine but if not I say we let him walk.

Off the top of my head I know that Chara and Redden are UFAs and it's gonna be tough for the Sens to re-sign both of them plus Havlat, while giving raises to Spezza and such.

Looks like I arrived late to the party. I did my own research and list at the start of the season. Corvo should be a UFA and Belanger should not be, just as you all concluded. CBGB, as for Cory Brolund, I e-mailed him a few days ago about Garon being on his UFA list and he finally agreed with me that Garon should not be on there. I guess he hasn't updated it yet, though.

Personally, I think all of those guys are gone outside of maybe Cowan.

i cant see Norstom gone...but if he wants a 3rd year, i suppose the Kings may look elsewhere, though even that is hard to believe...Corvo i expect to get a Modry-like contract elsewhere...

I think Cowan is nice to have around....he's been extremely brittle this year, but we shouldnt forget, this guy has taken on true heaveyweights, and can also skate a shift and score some points

good to know that Ebel may not be UFA next season...i fully expectd him to be gone after this breakout year

Doesn't EB fall under the category of 28, but certain amount of time in an NHL uni????

Guess I'll have to ask DT at the next "Breakfast With The Kings"

The rule is 29 and four years in NHL for 2006-07.

Then it goes down to 28 and four years in NHL for 2007-08

and finally 27 and four years in NHL for 2008-09.

I hope that keeps you from disturbing DT while he is eating.

Yeah, I forgot to put Norstrom on there, I dont think he'll walk, but if he wants too many years, or too much, I could see DT going in a younger direction.

Cowan is nice to have because he's a tough middleweight who can take on the few heavys that are still in the league.

Corvo will be overpayed for by someone, and the following year, Belanger will get the same treatment.

Group VI category:

Noah Clarke
Brad Fast
Adam Hauser

will likely qualify for this category...

Group 6 free agency: These players, whose contracts have expired, are age 25 or older, have completed three or more professional seasons, and (i) in the case of a player other than a goaltender, have played less than 80 NHL games (regular-season and playoff), or (ii) in the case of a goaltender, have played less than 28 NHL games (regular-season and playoff).

And I don't think we should lose any sleep if that happens. Brust and Fukufuji (or Munce or maybe Zaba) will be a fine tandem in Manchester if Hauser is gone. Fast and Clarke are fine talents... in the AHL. Hopefully Roussin can find his game and by next season fill the void on 2nd line LW. If not, I'm sure there are others who can step in.

And Kopitar will either be in Manchester or LA next season... and we'll see if the Kings will decide to sign Brian Boyle after his junior year and send him to Manchester, similar to what they did with Tambellini. The Monarchs could use some size, and they definitely could use some centers as well.
