Check Out the Free Agent Game

Go to the Trade Rumors Board and check out the Free Agent game. I have been playing as the Jackets GM and I've actually had fun. It is obviously totally unrealistic, but as we say on here, "everyone can dream." Some are more unrealistic than others. My only unrealistic facet to this game is I made lots of trades and only two UFA signings. Here is the roster I've compiled so far, the salary cap for the game was 56M.

Rick Nash - Brad Richards - Simon Gagne
Niklas Hagman - Jarrett Stoll - Andy McDonald
Jason Chimera - R.J. Umberger - Jakub Voracek
Jared Boll - Curtis Brown - Andrew Murray

OPEN - Jan Hejda
Rusty Klesla - Derek Morris
Aaron Rome - Kyle McLaren

Pascal Leclaire
Fredrik Norrena

I'm still trying to get a defenseman through trade, but I think the D could be realigned and make room for Methot. I think this is a playoff team if not better, but obviously since I put it together I'm biased. I was also able to keep almost all of our blue chip prospects except for Brassard, I did trade him to get Umberger and Gagne. I also traded Zherdev to get Richards. Most of the other deals were picks and/or roster players or prospects.

What do you think?

Andy McDonald on wing? Kyle McLaren on your third pairing at $2.5 million/year? The defense looks a little rough to me. The first line is pretty solid if Gagne's healthy. Second line is okay.

That looks like a playoff team to me.

You're just saying that 'cause it includes Richards.

Where would all of this have left us prospect-wise?
