Think it will be a busy day? Slow day? Will it start off slow then pick up around 4 or 5EST?

I don't think the sens will be taking too many FA's but I can see Bryan Murray impressing with a trade.

I can also see him sing a few journeymen and call it a day. That's no fun at all though.

The board will crash when Hossa becomes the leagues highest paid player.

As long as we get Huet resigned....I won't really care about the rest of the existing teams signing UFA's since the Caps are not expected to be busy on that front.

I'll will be interested to see how the RFA game plays out (including our own guys, Green, Laich, Morrisonn). Im not expecting any offer sheets to be signed the first day (if any at all)...but who knows.

From what I understand, teams have until 11:59AM tomorrow to come to an agreement with their free agents, and at 12:00PM they become free agents and the bidding commence, right?

The Red Wings will sign some vet for league minimum that everyone claims should be retired and was a terrible idea, but ends up working out perfectly for them.

Oh, and Brian Burke will do his best to poach the Red Wings leftovers again.

Kevin Lowe offers Corey Perry A-Rod money. Brian Burke sharpens hunting knife.

i wish that will happen. But i do except Grabovski to get trade this summmer, he has no future in MTL with Chipchura, Maxwell, Plekanec, and 09 first round pick(assuming he is a center).

First signing won't happen till 2:30ish with people on here saying why isn't anything happening. First signing will be a 2nd tier guy(read that not Hossa, Sundin, Redden or Cambell). By the end of the day Hossa Sundin and Cambell signed(not redden)

people will complain why is TSN showing Wimbledon Tennis(personally i don't know why Sportsnet doesn't take advantage of this and have a Free Agent show from like 12-6)

Atlanta is so far under the floor, they have to spend like a drunken sailor tomorrow. Same for Colorado.
