    Mark Streit should be the 30th of your list, and will make 2.5 – 3 millions.

  2. leafy says:

    I don't understand why the Leafs would be interested in RFAs.

    Does it make sense for the Leafs to lose 1st round picks, given that they might finish near the basement?

    The Leafs have been burned badly TWICE in the past 20 years.  In 1990, they acquired Tom Kurvers for a 1991 1st round pick (Scott Niedermeyer).

    Then in 1996, they acquired Wendel Clark for a package that included their 1997 1st round pick (Roberto Luongo).

    Let's forget about the RFAs…and let's keep our draft picks.

  3. habsrock99 says:

    He wasn't a 1st Round Pick but in 2001 the Leafs traded Adam Mair and a 2nd Rounder in 2001(Mike Cammalleri) for Aki Berg

  4. RIP_Dimebag says:

    If Forsberg decides he wants to play another season I can see Naslund signing with whatever team Forsberg signs with.

  5. oilcountry88 says:

    well he did get 62 points last year and is very versitile.H e can play forward and defence and is definetly underrated

  6. Nemix says:

    Im growing tired of any player that places their value well over the team .. 8 million is far too much to cough up on a chance the player will work well into your system.. In a cap where ebery bit makes the difference.. this jesus syndrome that one player will take your team to to lord stanley is pretty uch false.. Very few out there worth that sort of money beyond a gretzkey n his heyday or a crosby..  That price the player has to do everything … Let some of these players outprice themselves out of the league and go for players never really got the chance, more excitied to play the game and show what they can do … young ones to even vets that have been mis used …    Let the players that wish to hold teams hostage go …

  7. DJTOKid says:

    What would happen with picks if the leafs signed Carter, Perry and Bouwmeester this year? How would they have enoughpicks in one year for compensation and if they had to give them out for the next three years how would they pick which team gets which year?

  8. doanerfan says:

    Umm…its called plagerizm. And your doing a fine job at it. All you did was re-arrange some names.

  9. seejay14 says:

    Where is Pavol Demitra?
    Hes a 60-70 point producer every year, and a first line center.

    Guys like Avery, Morrison, Hainsey, and Orpik make this list and Demitra Doesn't?

  10. paulieplatypus says:

    Considering the Rangers are offering Avery 2.8 million per year, I don't see him signing with another team for less than $3.5 million per year if not much more.     

  11. prospectiv says:

    Nice try but your "interested teams" list is completely sourceless.  Jeff Carter would interest a lot more than 3 teams.  Bob Gainey stated he has no intent to pursue Campbell.  I'm pretty sure Jagr could find other takers than the NYR or Russia…  This is pure speculation… even worst than Eklund's.

  12. trademan says:

    where is the source. If it is plagerism I will remove the article asap and ban the user.

  13. habsrock99 says:

    If you sign a guy to an offer sheet that would have the other team receive 4 1st Round Picks, you are not allowed to sign another player to an offer sheet that would involve a 1st Round pick as compensation.

    Just like if your a team with an RFA who receives an offer sheet that would see you get 4 1st Round Picks, others teams can not offer another one of your RFA's a contract that would result in you receiving a 1st Round Pick.

  14. doanerfan says:

    Trademan, here is the link:

    http://thefourthperiod.com/freeagents/top30ufas.html

    As you will see, all the info is the same, just re-arranged.

  15. habsrock99 says:

    Streit's actually quite over-rated. Only reason he scored 62 points is because of Andrei Markov(now theirs a player who's under-rated). To think Streit will duplicate his 62 point performance is absurd. Not to mention he's the worst defensive player in the league and has got to average at least 3 turnovers per PP when he has full control of the puck with no one near him. To put it simply, he makes Bryan McCabe look like a genious defensively.

  16. oilcountry88 says:

    O ya sorry i forgot about him. i switched him and meszaros and forgot to put him in meszaros spot. He definetly deserves to be there

  17. ace5135 says:

    If Kristian Huselius gets half of what you are proposing… I will bend over and kiss my own corn hole.

  18. BruMagnus says:

    Let's include the Penguins as a team interested in both Malone and Hossa. Theymay yet sign one of them, especially if that player goes to July 1st and gives the Pens a chance to match (or near-match) another offer, at least so says Hossa.

    Also, if they cannot sign either, they MAY go after Naslund as a cheaper option, though I hope to hell they do not!

    And let's add Toronto for Sundin.

    Good list though. Some prices I disagree with:
    Malone could get $5 million especially after Carter's signing.

    Orpik would be a STEAL at $2.5 million. Expect at least $3.5 for him.

    I wouldn't pay Morrison more than $2 million, but your prices are fair. Not sure Svatos deserves to much or Marc Streit, who could be a one-year wonder.
    Redden will get far more than $3 million minimum. It'll be interesting to see where he goes and for how much. $5 million sounds reasonable for him not that the Cap is so high.

    Brian Rolston wants between $4.5-5.5 million for sure.

    Jagr won't play in the NHL for a mere $4 million. He could still get $7 million for a one year deal, at least with bonuses, on a heavily incentive-based contract.

    Liles could get a lot of reasonable offers.

    I'll be following this Bouwmeester scandal very closely. Should be interesting to see if the Panthers trade away another of their star players.

  19. BruMagnus says:

    I agree with you and Habsrock99 and said as much on my post further down.

  20. BruMagnus says:

    Fletcher has come and said the Leafs will NOT target RFAs for the reasons you mention.

  21. BruMagnus says:

    You refer to Hossa I assume?
    Pens offered him $7.15 million a year for 7 years. $50 million for 7 years, going into older age, and he greedily rejected.

  22. BruMagnus says:

    Please take a picture of it and post it WHEN it happens.

  23. oilcountry88 says:

    WTH are you talking about??? I didnt look at any of this+plus this list is only UFA's?? All I did was went to older articles in March 2008 and found a list of UFA's and RFA's and put them in my order with which teams i think will go after the players and their value???????

  24. doanerfan says:

    Sure you did. It's called 'copy' and 'paste'

  25. oilcountry88 says:

    why dont you read my list and see the differences between them …. such a retard

  26. doanerfan says:

    Whats the difference???

  27. DJTOKid says:

    yah start stretching man, Huselius gets 3.5 minimum. My guess the bluejackets, hawks, wings, or wild.

  28. DJTOKid says:

    He just told you what the differance is you moron. His list includes RFA's the other one doesn't. Are you going to say anyone who makes a list of who they think are the top 30 ufas and rfas is copying and pasting? Get a grip bud and stop being a dink and grow up.

  29. DJTOKid says:

    Thats whack holmes

  30. habs_punk says:

    Or maybe he just didn't want to stick around in Pittsburgh. I guess we'll find out when he does sign. Maybe he takes less money to play somewhere else. I hope that's the case, otherwise he's probably going to end up with the Rangers.
