Here’s my take on what happened since July 1rst. There’s still a few good free agents available, but in general, most teams are done. Let’s start a good discussion!
Anaheim : The jury’s still out. While signing Niedermayer was a good start, they were needing at least 2 top 9 forwards. Also, if they don’t resign Beauchemin, the D isn’t looking as strong as it was. Time’s not up yet, so we’ll see. But they have to move if they don’t wanna be losers.
This July 1st, hockey fans were able to witness something that is typically rare during free agency day. That being Canadian hockey teams actually signing free agents. Calgary, Montreal, and Toronto, spent some money and were able to get some of the most coveted free agents this off-season. Now…the calm after the storm happened and now all of us are starting to get a clear picture of what next years rosters are going to look like.
