Here it is, folks: The HTR FREE AGENTS POOL.

Come in to have some fun and win prizes!After what has seemed to be an eternity (at least, for me) the NHL is back and so are the hockey pools!

Since I’m basically the one in charge of organizing contests on here and I’m a pool addict I figured that it’d be great to make a pool about the Free Agents to celebrate the return of the NHL.

OK, this is easy. All you have to do is copy and paste these 25 UFA players in an email and write down next to each of them with which team they are going to sign this summer. Send the email along with your HTR Nickname to:

1. Peter Bondra-RW

2. Valeri Bure-RW

3. Anson Carter-RW

4. Pavol Demitra-C

5. Jason Allison-C

6. Paul Kariya-LW

7. Alex Kovalev-RW

8. Eric Lindros-C

9. Vladimir Malakhov-D

10. Dan McGillis-D

11. Glen Murray-RW

12. Chris Osgood-G

13. Nikolai Khabibulin-G

14. Zigmund Palffy-RW

15. Yanic Perreault-C

16. Martin Rucinsky-LW

17. Mathieu Schneider-D

18. Teemu Selanne-RW

19. Jozef Stumpel-C

20. Jason York-D

21. Alexei Zhamnov-C

22. Alexei Zhitnik-D

23. John LeClair-LW

24. Tony Amonte-RW

25. Sergei Gonchar-D

As usual, all the results will be posted once the contest ends and the winners will receive some cool prizes.

As usual also, this is a free contest and all you have to do to enter is to be an HTR member.

You have up until Sunday july 31 to send your predictions.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions if needed.

Have fun!

    Should we also write down how much we assume they will sign for?:P

    Just asking ’cause I can see a lot fo these coming down with 25 Toronto’s…

  2. PensFansRejoice says:

    talk about a guessing game… Too many teams with too many needs to fill for this to be accurate in any way but will try regardless 😛

  3. Scruffy05 says:

    Anson Carter and Mathieu Schneider are proving to be pains in the arse….

  4. Bishop7979 says:

    what if we think they wont sign anywhere?

  5. Scruffy05 says:

    Osgood, eh?:P

  6. NemiNA says:

    Mine’s IN! I garauntee I won’t win anything.

    Posting my picks today. Usually I’m pretty good at predicting where players will end up but in this new NHL, I have no idea which direction most teams will be going. My most recent prediction on this site was that Hullie was going to sign in Phoenix about two weeks before he actually did and I received a bunch of ribbing for it. I just had a hunch that he’d join Wayne on the desert but this is a real crapshoot. We’ll giver’ a go and see how many predictions I can make off this list but I’m not feeling too confident.

  8. SmittyCartoons says:

    Where is Niedermayer, Leetch, Turgeon, Savage..etc etc?

  9. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Hey stupid, Turgeon hasn’t been bought out yet, neither has Savage, not officially any ways….

    Also, these are last years free agents, guys who we know are UFA’s.

  10. koolcory77 says:

    i think the reason why someone like leetch is not on the list because you know who will either sign with rangers and or leafs, not anywhere else.

    its more difficult with some one like kovalev. he could go to montreal, penguins, phoenix, etc. wherever.

  11. RaGsHoCkEy88 says:

    uhh leetch sign with the rangers?? haha funny. sathers a piece of garbage. he really ruined the rangers. playoffs isnt even in the rangers’ vocab. THEY NEED LEETCH. they traded him for some prospects but id be bending over backwards to get him. theres a bunch of great free agents the rangers could use to balance out the veteran/young guys on the team. id say go with a younger goalie and a veteran defence with a mix of young/vet offence. but sather decided to clean house. were gonna be watching the hartford wolfpack (screw that)

  12. Aetherial says:

    How do you know? It is a big crapshoot.

  13. Aetherial says:


    For the last couple of days I have defended you to other posters who have nothing better to do with their time than bash you (and all Leaf fans).

    Then you start your response here with “Hey Stupid”.

    How about you reserve your venow for people who are attacking you or who are attacking others consistently with no real purpose. There was no call for you to start your that way.

  14. Flyer_Dman says:

    Side note prediciton.

    McCarty to the Sens.

  15. Lint07 says:

    Simply write that the player won’t sign anywhere.

  16. Lint07 says:

    I could’ve listed 50 UFA’s but I thought 25 was plenty enough…

    This is just a little Pool I’ve prepared quickly to revive the fun around here.

    Wait ’til the ”real” HTR Hockey Pool starts in october, it’s gonna be crazy!

  17. Lint07 says:

    Already 30 submissions the first day, keep ’em coming guys!

  18. Isles22 says:

    Isles pick up Paul Kariya, Chris Osgood, and Teemu Selanne, then replace Kenny Jonsson with Sergi Gonchar. How’s that sound!

  19. Lint07 says:

    I think they’ll go for Bondra instead…

  20. Desertdog17 says:

    Anybody see selanne and Khabibulin in Phoenix? There are rumors of Amonte back the Coyotes to, but my guess is Chicago for Tony.

  21. RichterFan says:

    Are you going to add the players who wll be bought out soon? Or is this the final list?

  22. Freeze says:

    So many of these guys on the list are now has-beens, especially after a 1-year layoff.

  23. Lint07 says:

    nope, this is the only list and you have until the end of the week to enter.

  24. RichterFan says:

    ok cool
